      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very impressed given the bad name some cashback sites have!

      I signed up to this cashback site in late September, primarily for doing daily clicks. If you're not familiar with the concept of daily clicks, this basically involves using price comparison websites to conduct product searches and being paid anything from 1p to 4p per click (on average, around 2p per click) provided that you go through the cashback site when you're carrying out the searches. You're not obliged to buy anything at the end of searches, so this probably is best described as a no-spend transaction. To boost my balance, I've also also done some no-spend offers that involve registering for websites and newsletters but as I don't tend to buy much online I don't use it much for cashback. Whenn I'm discussing how well my transactions did or didn't track, I'll be more or less solely referring to no-spend transactions.

      ***Registration***
      To register, you need to fill in your details and wait for a confirmation email. When you receive this email, you need to click on the link contained inside it to verify your registration and then you should be good to start using the website.

      ***Tracking***
      In general, my transactions have usually become 'pending' within a few days, but in some cases it has taken several weeks. Cashbackkings is one of the cashback sites that tends to only update your statement once or twice a week (usually Tuesday and/or Wednesday for me) so don't automatically panic if no transactions become pending straight away.

      ***Payments***
      Once a transaction has shown up on your statement, it will almost always be accompanied by a date on which the amount will be paid to your account. In most cases, this will be a minimum of two to three months after it has become pending (this is definitely the case for daily clicks, but I've been finding that the other no-spend offers are taking longer than this to be paid and the dates given are usually more of the 3 month variety). I've not yet had any problems with payments, and the money has so far always been credited to my cashback account on the specified day.

      Unlike other cashback sites, there is no minimum payment threshold, and you can request payment mostly as soon as you have earnings awarded to you (anything above 1p). You have several choices for being paid, including BACS bank transfer, Paypal and Amazon vouchers. If you're requesting payment via Amazon vouchers, you'll have to wait until you've accumulated £5 as awarded payments in your account before you can cashout. So far, I've been using BACS as I want the money directly in my bank account and don't want to be messing about waiting for Paypal payments to go into my bank account as it adds at least a week onto the whole payment process. I've made two BACS requests so far, and both have arrived by the predicted date. One actually arrived a day earlier than this, which was nice. Once you've received your payment, you can confirm it to cashbackkings so that they know that your request has been honoured. Having not had any problems on that front as of yet, I'm not sure what happens if it goes past the predicted date and you've not confirmed receipt of payment so I don't know if it flags something up at their end or not.

        Go go go!!!

        Ive joined cashbackkings for about 2 years or so and can't believe I didn't sign up before then! Im trying to imagine how much money ive missed out on!

        For anyone who isn't sure, cashbackkings is a site which will give you cashback on money you spend on most sites online, from debenhams to play.com. All you have to do is clear your cache, then click through to the website from the cashbackkings website.

        Ive earned about £230 in the last 2 years, from just this website, I have also started using quidco so have earnings there also.

        You also have easy money, money for registering, searching etc.

        The website itself is easy to navigate, also gives you hot deals, or sales that are going on.

        Finally, the most important part, cashing out the money is nice and easy, you can choose where how, paypal, BACS, amazon vouchers.

        Sometimes other sites have a higher % on some stores, but also some are higher here, so ive learnt to use more than one site to maximise.

        Another downer, is that youre first £5 goes to them (but its like most sites!)

        Lovely site, just remember to clear cache before you buy!

        Very impressed

        I have recently started using this site after scouring for some recommended cash back sites. Despite the fact that I have only been using the site for a few days, I am quite impressed. I was able to search on the website prior to actually signing up unlike some of the others which don't give you a choice in the matter. From the brief search I undertook it was apparent that there are quite a large number of retailers who have signed up with this website.

        The signing up process was easy and took about a minute or less and was confirmed when I activated through my email a message sent to me. Searching for retailers on the website can either be done through search via a category, or simply using the search bar. I have signed up to 2 accounts at the moment, the first has been successfully tracked and the amount is now pending and the second has not appeared yet although they do warn it can take up to 2 weeks before the transaction will show.

        The cash back amounts are also very enticing such as when I signed up to bwin to take advantage of their double the deposit offer, I have been credited with 40.00 as cashback. While it is unfortunate that amazon is not a name signed up with, it is of great benefit that just like this site, you can receive the monies in the form of amazon vouchers.

        If you don't wish to do so, you can also request a cheque or a BACS payment. However the downside is that from the successfully recorded transaction, a 3 month wait is anticipated before I will receive the cashback. The latter is just something I have to accept but all in all, there is very little to quibble about. The offers are good, the range of merchants is wide and the process is simple

        My favourite way to shop!

        This site has become a particular favourite of mine this year whilst christmas shopping and shopping for birthdays. I always always shop online, the only shops I tend to go into are super markets so this website is a new and far more exciting way to shop. It also makes more sense to get the cash back.

        What CashBack Kings does -

        By becoming a member to cash back kings (CBK) - which is a very simple process of email user name password and activating it through your email - You can recieve cash back for shopping online at most of you favourite shops.

        It works by logging into CBK website, locating the shop or company by searching for where you want to buy from and clicking the link through to that website. You then shop on that website, paying the price online then recieving a allocated percentage back. For example you might shop on Argos and sepnd £50 online and get 5% back into you CBK account which is £2.50 back. Its not always a great deal but when it adds up with all you christmas shopping it is definitely worth that bit of extra effort.

        The list of shops they have to buy through is fantastic and it changes so there are always new ones going on. The percentages vary from 1% up 18 % (the highest I have seen). And shops such as insurance or gas and electricity generally give you a certain sum back ranther than a percentage.

        My Experiences -

        I have used cash back kings now to renew my car insurance recieving £28 back which I thought was fantastic as my insurance is quite high. Its almost like getting a little bonus for all those annoying extras we have to pay for in life.

        I have switched my Gas and Electricity too through CBK and recieved £62 back which was astonishing and felt worth while putting that extra bit of time and research into it.

        I have struggled on the website though with play.com, as they are a shop Play.com allow you to get cash back on certain products like new releases of DVD's but you have to make sure you read the details of what you get cash back on because it says up to 6% but products are all different.

        One great thing from CBK is you can get £1 from each refferal that signs up. Which is great they dont even need to buy anything they just need to sign up and you get a little bit extra!

        I personally set my self a little time line of 3 months and get it paid by paypal every 3 months as this is enough time to get a good bonus going and it really feels like a treat out of the blue!

        CBK account -

        To get the money back from you can have the money sent to you in 3 ways. BACs transfer, Paypal or Amazon.

        It is great that you get the choice of how to be paid, my preference is paypal as I can tie it in with all my ebay transactions. I would definitely recommend this to any internet shoppers or even people who dont shop on the internet this is a great reason to get into it!

        You can do you grocery shopping, clothes shopping, insurance, loans and credit cards, shoes, gifts go and have a look and see what you can save before christmas!

        Disadvantages

        Paying you cashback 100 percent!!!

        Cashback Kings gives its members the chance to earn cashback with them just like the other cashback sites. Cashback Kings though is one of few cashback sites that pay out 100 percent to its members. This means they do not charge a fee every year and everything you earn from their website is yours to keep! You can request payment from just one pound and get paid with different options including Amazon vouchers which has just been put in recently!

        On Cashback Kings there are a good amount of free offers where you can make some easy money from. I think Cashback Kings has the most free registration money sites available. I made my self a easy fiver just registering on other sites for free.

        On a daily basis I earn about 30p in daily clicks on the site, they have good payment for the daily clicks. In a week I make 2.10 nearly so making money on here on a daily basis is good.

        In the months of being a member only twice has a transaction failed to track for me. I did put in a missing claim one was for Photobox and they sorted the payment out for me the next month. When requesting payment of them they have been fast to sort it out for me. There has hardly been any issues with them paying me out it has been very good service provided from Cashback Kings.

        If you want 100 percent cashback then this is one of the sites to be with. Plus you can make free money by doing a number of offers for them so it is a great site all around!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good one to put into you're routine.

        CashBackKings is the 100% arm of the RPoints empire. Launched two years ago, is has become one of the big players in the 100% cashback market, offering top levels of cashback on 1000's of merchants and a Highest Cashback Promise to match any other sites that offers more cashback, and a forum for members.

        Looking at the merchants, it has all the merchants you would expect, more than Quidco, and includes some daily clicks as well. The daily clicks are in the forum "Cashback Lounge" in a thread called "Recurring clicks thread" and they have Carsource, Cascade Compare, Search Chief, and Interadmedia. These are only updated in your earning fortnightly or monthly so don't worry if they don't track overnight or for a few days. The section for free signups is nice and healthy, and useful to have them together, although they now have a limiter on how many times you can do most of them and it blocks you from clicking through again.

        They have a good selection of special rates, and limited cashback and some good headline rates on the main page. The main difference with CashBackKings is if they offer £100 for Car Insurance and it tracks, it will track into your account at £100, at Quidco you might find it tracks in at £80 or £120 even though it's supposed to be £100 as Quidco track the amount the affiliate is going to pay them into your account. One thing that is disappointing is there are no stats for merchants showing how well they track, how many % of enquiries they resolve, so you are in the dark!

        CashBackKings unique selling point is they offer the highest cashback possible and promise to match any other site that offers more cashback. When they started they used to alter the rates of cashback on the merchants page, now they tell you to submit a HCP claim instead, for their Highest Cashback Promise. They conveniently most the time forget to tell you where you can do a HCP, as its not listed on the site in many places. You need to visit www.cashbackkings.com/hcp. They will only match cashback sites on their list, it does include most the big players, Quidco, TopCashBack, WePromiseTo and GetPoundsBack.

        If you're unlucky enough to not have something track, you can submit an earnings enquiry so they can manually trace you're transaction. They say on average it takes 8 weeks to get a response and you should leave that long before contacting them again. I have had to submit five earnings enquiries since May 2008, two have been verified and paid and three have been rejected by the merchants, which really in appalling. That's £98 of cashback I'm due for valid transactions where the merchants have lied and said I didn't complete the transaction, the offenders are Bingo Liner, Great Universal, and Bet On Markets.

        They do have a small forum on CashBackKings, nothing like the size of RPoints, only four sub forums. The moderators of the site are infrequently active these days, and they seem to have a high turnover of staff from who posts on the forum. The forums are still quite busy with people talking about merchants, and tracking stats and problems, which is often all very useful. They don't like you mentioning other sites when you are posting on the forum.

        They do offer a referral fee of £1 for every member you refer who earns £5 and gets to withdrawal with it. I've found the referrals actually do tend to earn you the money on here, other than some other sites where nobody ever reaches the minimum payout! The minimum cash out is £1 by BACS, you request payout which occurs at 7am Tuesday morning and in your bank by Thursday regular as clockwork. They also do PayPal and Amazon vouchers for those so inclined.

        Since opening I've received over £1600 and generally with just the minimum daily clicks and odds and ends tend to earn about £10 a month. I don't use it very often otherwise in the last few months, but it is still a very good site to check!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Rewards for referring friends, easy to navigate and earn

        Cashback Kings is yet another cashback site, although one of the better ones. This site do not charge an annual fee, and as a result you receive 100% of the cashback you earn. Ensure you read the terms and conditions of each offer to ensure your cashback tracks, as often you might be required to delete any cookies in your browser before clicking through or there may be problems with the transaction tracking!

        Tracking is usually reliable and the site is easy to navigate. The home page usually features the newest and most profitable offers. The basis of the cashback site is to shop as you would online normally however you can earn cashback on your transaction when you click through from cashback site. The cashback on online shopping is usually a % of your transaction value, and for insurance purchases or opening a bank account etc is usually a set reward e.g. £50.

        This is probably one of the best paying sites, and their response time to emails and queries is within reason. In the event of raising a ticket (e.g. a query regarding a transaction), the response time can be up to 8 weeks which requires improvement. Even after that time you may need to chase up any transactions and it can be a long and drawn out process. Basically if the retailer doesn't pay them they can't pay you - so never bank on getting your cashback although I haven't had any major problems.

        Overall, a good cashback site offering some of the highest cashback levels. A simple site to navigate and sign up is simple. You can refer friends and be rewarded for doing so, so everyone is a winner!

        Disadvantages

        A great cashback site!

        I was first introduced to this website from somebody on moneysavingexpert.com and have been very impressed. Although I belong to many cashback sites, this is often one of the highest payers. The site itself is owned by rpoints who have a very similar website themselves.

        There is a history on the site of all the sites you have clicked through including the time. This then shows in your account, usually within a week (often within a few hours). It will come up as pending and will give a day as to when the payment is due. This is often a few months down the line, as they have to wait for their money first. But no complaints. As soon as they get their money you can rest assured you will get yours. You have the option of BACS payment, Amazon and Paypal. BACS and Paypal have a minimum payout of a mere 1p. This has to be the best around. Payment is in your bank within days.

        Another good thing with cashbackkings is their forum. It isn't hugely active but is monitored and their are helpers on board. On the few occasions items have not tracked, they have always been extremely helpful in sorting things out. They have ALWAYS sorted it out for me and I have a 100% payout rate.

        Highly recommended to all!!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          the best cashback site there is

          I am not going to produce a proper review on this one, as there are already a few here that give all the factual info.

          This is the beast cashback site I have tried and I tried quite a few: simple, efficient, pays out very quickly and on time and usually tracks well, though some things require a manual claim (I never had one rejected).

          The percentages cashback are fantastic and hard to beat anywhere, they pay hard cash by BACS or PayPal or Amazon vouchers if you want to get a bit more for your points.

          The payment threshold is £1, which is as good as it gets.

          Their coverage is great: most stores that pay cashback at all are included.

          The main disadvantage is limited to people who already use Rpoints AND have a VIP status there: if you switch from Rpoints to cashback kings you are likely to loose your VIP status on Rpoints and thus loose access to their extended voucher table, which itself might cost you money/time.

            Disadvantages

            Topcashback is better!

            Cashback Kings is one of many cashback sites and one of the better ones. These sites pay you whenever you buy something using a link from their website to another and they pass on some or all of the referral money on to you the consumer.

            Cashback Kings is a good cashback site as they pass 100% of the money they receive onto you and also are now free to join (unlike a site called Quidco which you have to pay a £5 fee per year to use.) Cashback Kings get their money through advertising and they also promise to match any other cashback site percentage if you can find a better one.

            There is also a referral scheme where you earn £1 when your friend earns £5 and you can chose whether to keep the £1 or be generous and give it to them to get them started!

            The site is nice and colourful and is presented well and better in this way than my favourite cashback website which is Topcashback. (See my review which I won`t get paid when you view it because of the new DooYoo rules.)
            However my main problem with this website is that some of my daily clicks did not track and about one in five I got paid for! I have also heard that their customer service is terrible and also found that some of their percentages were worse than other sites. The other thing is that when you refer someone on Topcashback you get £2.50 when they get £5 which is obviously better!

            The minimum payout is only £1 and you can be paid by Paypal, BACs or in Amazon vouchers!

            Overall I think Cashback Kings is a nice cashback website but has a few problems so I personally would recommend this site but recommend Topcashback if you have not joined any cashback sites before as it is overall better even if it has a design!

            Topcashback is better!

              Disadvantages

              Worth joining but not the top site for me

              I love cashback sites as it is money for nothing really. If you haven't used a cashback site before I should explain that you a join a site, and there are alot out there, and then you shop through the site. For example you can register with a site and then click through that site to a site you regularly shop with and get money back. It might be a set amount or a percentage of what you have spent. You can also earn money without spending by doing daily clicks or searches on certain sites or by registering with companies. Beware as you can end up getting alot of spam!

              Obviously the sites vary slightly, some have minimum amounts to redeem and some charge a fee to join. Although many companies are registered with several cash back sites you may need to look around to find the best deals.

              Cashbackkings is an easy site to use and does not charge a registration fee but unfortunately I don't think the customer service is the best. Personally I would rather pay a fee and get a service.

              I have received several hundred pounds from cashback sites so I think they are well worth looking at. What have you got to lose?

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Paid to shop, can't be bad.

                Cashbackkings.com is one of many web sites offering some cash back in exchange for you taking up a particular offer shown on their web site, which might be something like £2.50 cash back if you take out car insurance with such-and-such a company. Similar offers are available for other things like money off shopping at a certain store, 2p every time you visit a web site, magazine subscriptions, cash back when you switch energy suppliers, that sort of thing.

                I've used a couple of sites doing this, and some are better than others. I found cashbackking.com okay in terms of getting your cash back (some can be a little unforthcoming!), though as with the others, like Greasy Palm, , it can take a long time to arrive. I once had to wait 8 weeks before receiving my payment, but it was a cheque for £69 so when I finally arrived I forgave them!

                I think that these cash back sites can work out quite well if you are a little selective in what you go for, mainly I would suggest sticking to products or services you intended to use anyway, the ones offered are very often big and familiar name companies, high street banks, shops etc.

                I'm giving them a five star rating because my experience with them has been trouble free.

                  Cash back site

                  I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to using cash back sites as I tend to either forget to use them or I cannot be botered to do the daily clicks that you need to complete to stand any chance of reaching the cash out amount. Finally I tend to be the kiss of death to most sites as they either go under or cease to be so generous in their payouts when I manage to finally get around to joining them.

                  I have been impressed with some of the offers available, we managed to get £14 out of lovefilm without actually spending a penny by cancelling the subscription within the 14 day period, I have since read that this loophole has been closed however I have not checked to see if that is actually the case.

                  The site is well set out and the offers are eally easy to read up on and te explanatins are very clear, they have all the major retailers on the site with a generous 5% cashback on Marks and Spencer for example. Signing up was very easy and did not take long at all, you can ad more personal detail later and there is a reward for completing some of the surveys to get you started on the site.

                  I also used the site to book with Travelodge when we were going away for a weekend and the pay backs was 3.8% wich is not bad. The amounts can add up and the

                  This is one of the better cash back sites that I have experienced especially as your payments come through quickly and it is easy to track your account.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Overall, as these sites go, you can do a lot, lot worse than use Cashback Kings for your work.

                    Cashback Kings is one of the best cashback sites currently out there. From the same creators as Rpoints cashback, they clearly have the decade long pedigree of knowing how to run such a site successfully and reliably. I have not had the pleasure of achieving payout yet for this fine site but will do so next month as my pending cashbacks go to awarded.

                    Cashback Kings offer arguably the most competitive rates on a lot of the big money cashback services. For example, I have just been awarded £68 for switching my insurance. The insurance itself only costs £97, so for 12 months cover I technically only pay £29. This is truly fantastic as the same deal elsewhere was only maxing out at £40 cashback.

                    The site itself is well designed and looks the part. You can get a lot of confidence in these sites from their appearance and ease of use. With that in mind, I am very confident in using Cashback Kings. From the home page down to the retailers description of the offerings, the site is clear and never leaves you feeling swamped in information or not knowing where to go next.

                    The left navigation covers everything from the retailers including the popular daily cashback clicks which can easily earn you upwards of £10 per month without even buying anything. There are also lots of survey, quiz and free registration offerings. My favourite is the Lovefilm cashback here where you can get £14 cashback for taking the 14 day trial and then you simply watch a film, send it back and cancel your trial keeping the £14. Doing the same thing elsewhere may have only got you £4.50 for your trouble.

                    The site offers a 5 second sign up which is good but not quite 5 seconds. I am a fast typer and it took me 20 seconds. It is a good hook to get you to join though. Nobody wants to have to do a lot of form filling before even getting to the business end.

                    The right hand navigation is purely to do with referral offers, the latest hot retailers to join and their cashback offerings and the hot tips that Cashback Kings recommend.

                    I have had no trouble at all using the site and the tracking of the cash back seems to be pretty much instant on most things. My £68 cashback showed up after 36 hours, so no complaints there. There has been no downtime so far when I have tried to log in.

                    Overall, as these sites go, you can do a lot, lot worse than use Cashback Kings for your work.

                      One of the best cashback websites on the internet

                      A brief explanation for those who are not familiar with the idea of a cashback website;

                      The Cashback website (in this case CBK's) approach a massive amount of online retailers - big stores, insurance companies, supermarkets, energy suppliers etc. The retailer will offer customers who make a purchase using a link from CBK's a certain percent of cashback on any purchase made (using the link on CBK's website) It is a way of them advertising and giving a reward to the customer for choosing to shop with them.

                      CBK's win = they take the first £5 you earn from your cashback reward (nothing else - ever)
                      Retailers win = they get free advertising and have the opportunity to offer good cashback deals enticing the customer to shop with them rather than a competitor.
                      Customer wins = you get cashback for a purchase you would have already made.

                      Cashbackkings (CBK's) are a valuable consumer resource who offer the best rates of cashback around. I have seen a few similar cashback sites but Cashbackkings tend to have better deals so i generally stick with them to increase my balance quicker.
                      I was recommended to Cashbackkings at first by my other half who had used them for a while and had received vouchers after his first £50 earned, so he could personally vouch for it.
                      CBK's payout is either in Amazon vouchers or some form of e-banking website such as Paypal.
                      Once you have made an online purchase using the link on CBK's website, they will track your referral link and usually within 24 hours you can see in your account details the date of purchase, the retailer/company, your reward, and the date you are due to be awarded - which is usually a few months later.
                      There are forums on the site which i would recommend you use before you buy anything as some of the companies (usually the bingo/gambling websites) will not pay up which is very naughty!

                      I will list the cashback awards i personally have recieved to date;

                      Madbid - £1 (register free award)
                      Kwik-fit Insurance - £42.50 (ladies motor insurance)
                      iTunes - £2.08 (8% cashback on purchases)
                      Alliance & Leicester - £50 (switch current account)
                      Game - £13.37 (10% cashback on software and 1.5% cashback on hardware)

                      Thats £108.95 extra money in my bank for things i would have bought anyway!
                      Highly recommended.
