This is yet another of the cashback sites that I've signed up to at one time or another in my search for a bit of extra cash. I'll admit that I originally signed up with this particular one to make some extra cash from daily clicks but these have dwindled a lot over the past couple of months so I don't use it too much these days other than for the odd online purchase if I'm not shopping at Amazon.
The site is easy to navigate and you shouldn't have a problem finding the particular categories that you want to find retailers in.
One of the reasons why I've signed up to so many cashback sites over the last year or so is down to the fact that I've had tracking problems with a fair few of them. Fortunately, I can't say that of this one. Every transaction has successfully tracked, and they provide an estimated date on which you can expect the money to be paid. While this is usually at least six weeks down the line, it's been correct in 99% of the estimations.
I choose to get payments straight into my bank via BACS and the money usually arrives without fail several days later, which is impressive. You can also choose to be paid through Paypal. For both, the minimum is 1p so you don't have to wait until your balance has built up to a certain amount before you can redeem.
Redemption is easy too. At the top of the page, you'll see your balance. This is hyperlinked and if you click it, it takes you to a statement page which contains a list of your transactions etc. Above this, is a Redeem button. For security reasons, you'll need to enter your password and after that, it's just a case of selecting your payment option and confirming it.
Technically speaking, you'll receive a £5 welcome bonus when you sign up. I say technically speaking as you don't get this added to your account straight away. Instead, you have to wait until you've clocked up at least £25 in awarded cashback before its status will change from pending to awarded. I'm currently nowhere near this amount so it'll be some way off for me but when you do get it, it's pretty generous.
** Rpoints **
I'm always open to making a little extra money from my web surfing activities so was very pleased when I learnt about cashback sites.
One of my favourite cashback sits is Rpoints. Once you join Rpoints for free you log into the well laid out and easy to you site before buying anything online.
Then you check in Rpoints to see if the thing you are buying is available from any of the shops listed in Rpoints.
If you find the item you want -and I usually do - at a good price in one of Rpoints listed shops then you check to see what cashback you can earn.
For instance I once earned £30 for applying for my car insurance to swiftcover via the Rpoints website.
I paid exactly the same money for my insuance as I would have if I'd gonr to the company directly, but because I went through Rpoints I earned £30
Effectively this meant that my car insurance was £30 cheaper in the long run once I'd withdrawn my Rpoints money.
That is all there is to using Rpoints. Just check for goods you want to buy and make sure you can get them for the same price from an Rpoints listed shop then earn yourtself some cahback money.
The way Rpoints works is that it shares some of it's advertising revenue with it's members and that is where the cashback money comes from.
So every transaction done via Rpoints earns it and you some money which is great!
The only drawback with Rpoints and it's not that bad is that when you earn cashback it can easily take a month or two for the payment to be cleared and put in your Rpoints account to withdraw.
** Conclusion **
I strongly recommend this site as being a great way to claw back some of the money you spend shopping online. Rpoints is great!
I think that, apart from ipoints, this is the first cashback site I ever joined, and it has to be one of my favourites, I have to say. I really enjoy using their system and find that it is pretty quick. I do not like the fact that sometimes your transaction can be "extended" when they have not heard from the people you bought from, i.e. you have done your bit, used the link, bought the goods, earned the cashback, then the seller does not notify Rpoints within the specified period, and they have to "extend" your pay-out time. The great thing about Rpoints, however, is the fact that everyone there genuinely seems to want to help everyone else. That, in my opinion, is what a true cashback site is all about. There are some great voucher codes, a great support/help system, quick answers, and lots and lots of internet sites to choose from. If you can't find it anywhere else, Rpoints usually has a site listed that you want to buy from. They even pay you for your first Tesco.com grocery shopping! I bought a mattress online recently and paid £159 for it and got nearly £7 in cashback which I was delighted with! Free postage too, and I could not have done it without Rpoints. I like their logo, I like their style and their redemption system is more than generous with you being able to redeem your rpoints at only a threshold of 100 points straight into your bank via BACS or by a nominated paypal account, which I love. I can give my husband a few pounds here and there, straight into his account, when I want him to pop onto ebay and buy me something! Perfect system! Highly recommended in my opinion.
Another one of the original cashback sites out there, RPoints is still a popular site among many cashbackers. It doesn't pay the best rates, does have most the clicks you want, but it does have the best and most comprehensive forum you will find on any cashback site! Rpoints has branched out and the company owns other cashback sites such as CashBackKings and Netfundraising, and they franchise out RPoints clones to people such as CashBack Club, Student Cashback, Cashback Rewards, and NoteCo.
RPoints is similar to how all sites were when they started, a 50% cashback site, they give you half the money they receive. This isn't the whole story though, RPoints has a Highest Cashback Promise, any transaction over 20 points (20p), they will match any other cashback sites amount of cashback, this makes it a decent consideration for purchases. Although wouldn't you prefer they just offered you the highest cashback in the first place?
To get this HCP you need to visit www.rpoints.com/hcp after you're transaction tracks into you're account. Obviously as this doesn't affect daily clicks, they are all still at 50%. There is a limit of 60 days on which you can submit a HCP claim for any transaction.
They're selection of daily clicks is pretty good, offering you Carsource, Cascade Compare, Search Chief, Seek Something, Tinta Search, Price Log, and Offerad. They also have a large selection of free clicks and signups you can do, but you only can do most of these one per account, and they block you from clicking through after one tracked clickthrough.
The minimum payout is 1p and they pay by BACS, Paypal or Amazon voucher. There used to be a discount on Amazon vouchers, but that has recently disappeared. The payment cutoff for BACS (the most popular payment method), is Tuesday at 7am, which is then paid immediately and will be in your bank account on Thursday of the week, always regular as clockwork. Clicks generally clear after roughly 30/60 days, and most pay on their scheduled payment day, only the larger ones that haven't paid occasionly get delayed until the money is received by RPoints.
They do have a good referral scheme, you can earn up to 500 points (£5) when you're referee earns £25 which doesn't take long.
The RPoints forum has the usual sections, questions, suggestions, a freebie sections, a space for deals etc. It has a VIP section for people who earn lots of cashback. It has a mystery shopping section which is pretty busy, but its best part is the gambling and loppholes boards. The forum is a must for anyone who does matched betting, with plenty of tips. They also have really popular photography competitions which are pretty good.
I've earned £620 from RPoints in the last few years, and generally earn £5-10 from the clicks, although not the best site for daily clicks, it can be useful and I do tend to find myself keeping an eye on the forum and have picked up lots of tips for other things over the last couple of years.
I signed up for Rpoints two month ago. That was the time I discovered these cashback and survey panel sites. Rpoints is a cashback site. As I collected a lot of cashback on another site, and want to withdraw it soon, I have used only once the Rpoints for shopping.
They offered 500 points for signing up. This can be redeemd to 5 pounds via Paypal, but it is still pending and there is no date written when it will be available. I invited a friend who accepted the invitation and joined the site, I didn't get the points for it. I clicked to their links, but I received only 40% of the points I should have. So I found that their tracking is not really good. Or they work with partner whose feedback doesn't work.
As there are more reliable cashback sites, I won't use this one and I can't recommend it to you neither. Probably you are more luckier with them than me, so give them a try, but don't wait too much from them.
Rpoints is a website which allows you to make money from it by buying products online and also by signing up to companies and offers.
Rpoints works by giving you points every time you purchase a product online from certain websites if you go to the online shop via the rpoints site. You can also collect Rpoints by doing things such as signing up for credit cards and changing your mobile phone contract. After you have collected a certain amount of points, you are then able to redeem them for real cash, either in the form of vouchers or via paypal or cheque. The reason why Rpoints is able to give you money for doing simple things such as signing up to a website is because the websites pay Rpoints for every customer who they refer to their websites and so Rpoints is then able to pass on a percentage of this commision to us.
When you first sign up, there are many easy points available which just involve registering to various websites and if you go via Rpoints whenever you do online shopping, the points soon start to rack up and you'll be collecting your first payment in no time. For minimal effort, it really is quite easy to make some money using this site, it might not be a huge amount but it is definately worth doing.
I have been using Rpoints for several years and have never been disappointed by the service that they offer.
For those that do not know, Rpoints is a cashback site, where you get paid for using Rpoints affiliate links when making internet purchases. However, you don't have to buy things to earn points, there are many sites that offer points for simply clicking on links, or subscribing to emails.
As you may have guessed from the name, Rpoints use a points system, and 1 point = 1p. When you use a link to buy something, within a couple of days, the points appear on your statement as pending, and then once Rpoints are paid, so are you. The process is normally always automatic, however, in some circumstances, you may have to put in manual claims if the click through doesn't track properly. This is not time consuming for the member, however, it can take Rpoints a while to confirm whether you will be getting the cashback. I have never had a manual claim rejected in all my years of using the site.
One of my favourite features of the site is their highest cashback policy, it means that if another site is paying more for the same thing, they will match that, all you have to do is submit a claim under the policy, and once they have verified this, the additional points are added to your statement. I find that Rpoints is not the best paying site for most things so use the policy a lot because I find Rpoints so reliable that I don't want to use another site in the first place.
Not only do you effectively get paid for using the site, it also has loads of vouchers codes etc so you can save money on your purchases and it has a vast array of forums where you can discuss deals with other users.
Its usually around a 2-3 month wait between clicking and the points being redeemable, however, its worth the wait as it is basically money for nothing. You can get paid though BACS, Paypal and in Amazon vouchers so there is a good variety, and they also do a high roller bonus whereby if you redeem £100 in one go, they add on another £1.
I have earnt over £1,000 down the years, from opening bank accounts, credit cards, betting accounts to do simple clicks and searches and signing up for emails. I would recommend it to all!
Rpoints.com is an online cashback site that allows you to sign up for offers & complete shopping online in order to earn points which can then be redeemed for rewards.
The website is free to join and registration is pretty straight forward. You will just require some basic information such as name, email address etc and then you can create a username and password with which to log in to the website with.
There are many offers that can be complete to earn rpoints and some of these are free so you really can earn something for nothing.
Payouts are by BACS, Paypal or Amazon vouchers and one point is equal to 1p. The minimum for BACS is 1 point, the minimum for paypal is 1 point and the minimum for Amazon is 500 points (£5.00), payouts are always processed promptly and when you cash out you will be advised of when you can expect your payment to arrive. I have cashed out today for BACS and was advised that the money should be in my account by tomorrow so that's great!
There are lots of offers on the site and cashback on a whole host of retailers so you can earn rpoints on items that you would have been purchasing anyway and they regularly have offers on the homepage such as 5000 rpoints when you take out insurance with Hastings (£50.00).
Overall I think the site is well, the different offers and retailers are sectioned well and the cashout page is very easy to understand. Registration is fast and can take under 30 seconds (if you are quick typer). I do find better cashback offers on some retailers elsewhere but I always keep my eye on this website just to make sure that I'm not missing any of their special offers or any of the free money. I am rating the site 4/5 for the reasons above.
Rpoints is one of several cash back web sites that I use daily at the moment. First formed over a decade ago, Rpoints is one of the more well run and established cash back web sites around and has a look and feel of both professionalism and know how. You feel safe using it in the knowledge that your cash back will be added in time and that is not a feeling you get with all of them.
I have been using Rpoints for around 4 months and have had a couple of payouts already so am naturally very pleased to have made some money back on purchases I was going to make anyway. These include home insurance and Lovefilm dvd rentals.
On top of the cash back you can earn for everyday purposes, Rpoints always has offers like bet £5, get £10 cashback at things like William Hills Bookmakers and similar offers for Bingo web sites that I have taken advantage of. Even if you don't win you can double your money.
I was put onto Rpoints by the fabulous www.moneysavingexpert.com by Martin Lewis. He recommends Rpoints inparticular for the daily clicking cash backs you can earn. This basically refers to shop bots like High Street Web and Carsource. By using these every day you can easily get around £7-8 per month. Now imagine doing the same on all the top 5-6 cash back sites. It soon adds up. Sometimes this cash back shows straight away and sometimes it doesn't leaving you feeling like it is not working, but it all seems to add in one lump sum, usually on a Monday morning.
The web site itself is well laid out and is very easy to use. I like the way they use points instead of pence as it gives you more of a feel of earning in a club rather than what is effectively a small amount on some things.
The navigation is split into shopping categories with the top of the left navigation being the most interesting as it is titles 'easy money'. In this section you will find the daily clicks along with surveys, coupons, no spend cash back and all kinds of easy cash back. I use this every day to keep things ticking over. Below this are all the categories for shopping and specialist areas like gambling and things like food and drink.
The main body area lists all the cash backs available for the section you are in and gives details of the retailer and the amount offered, plus what you need to do to obtain the cashback. This is all made really clear and is a credit to the web designers.
The top navigation offers you the log in area and other neat features like the Rpoints forum where the great new offers available are outlined and you can seek any help you might need on things like missing cash back and requirements for retailers to give cash back. It is often a good idea to go here if you want to do a cash back offer but are not 100% sure on the requirements.
The right hand navigation is crystal clear too with links to the referral system, the day's top offers and other advertising revenue streams that keep the site going.
To redeem your points into money, and lets face it that is the whole point, you simply click on your points total and are taken to the transaction history. From there you can see how much is available to withdraw as these things can take a month or two to go from pending to available, and once this is done you can select to withdraw by BACS, Paypal or Amazon vouchers. You do need over 2500 points there though which equates to £25.
The site never suffers from any down time at all which can only be good as you don't want server problems mid transaction. The only gripe I do have is that the amount offered is sometimes considerably lower than elsewhere. I would advise shopping around but stay away from sites that look un-professional.
Overall, Rpoints is one of the best cash back sites around, even though it does not offer the highest amounts. I have never had any problems and have not once had to report missing cash back.
Rpoints is a cash back site that has been in existence for ten years now, so is one of the most established. I joined Rpoints about three months ago after stumbling across it and have saved quite a bit of money since.
Cash back websites aim to save you money by negotiating discounts for you from a range of companies that trade through the internet. From a buyer's point of view, this is effectively money for nothing.
Rpoints is free to join, and has arranged discounts with over 1100 suppliers. These range from pitiful (but might as well still do it) offers of 0.5%, to very generous and well worth having such as 12% off allposters.co.uk.
Upon joining, you'll receive a "pending" £5 to be redeemed when your account reaches £25.
The Rpoints website is well laid out and easy to navigate. The menus are clear and the search function helps you find anything you need, either in the main site, or in the forums. All retailers are listed alphabetically and are available by clicking on the "browse retailers" button.
The centre of the page is taken up by the new and best deals, and the left has a series of buttons showing the various deal categories.
Rpoints aims to help its customers save or make money in three ways:
Firstly, there's the ongoing discounts mentioned above. To get these discounts applied, you simply click on the link to the seller on the Rpoints website. This takes you to the seller's website where you proceed as you would normally with your purchase. The seller and Rpoints liaise to ensure that a true transaction has taken place and your account is credited with the money.
This is where the first problem with Rpoints arises. Credits are shown as pending for a period, but this is often three months (i.e. you can't claim the money for this time). This is, apparently so that Rpoints can check for fraud etc., but a delay of three months seems ridiculous.
Since these companies sell through the internet, and you're (presumably) buying something you would have purchased anyway, it makes sense to use a cash back service such as this.
Secondly, Rpoints arranges one-off, introductory offers with lots of different companies. Again these vary widely in pay back but some of the best include £50 off Hastings car insurance, £40 off More Than home insurance, and £55 off Sky+HD. If you take up these offers, however, you must check that they're good value for money first of all (i.e. no point in saving £40 through Rpoints if you could go to another retailer for something that's £60 cheaper in the first place).
Lower offers are available without you having to buy anything at all. For example, you can get 50p for just doing an online quote with Gocompare and Confused.com. There's also links where you get paid to search. These are not really worth doing, paying 1 - 2p per search and being limited to one or two searches per day.
Thirdly, there's the Rpoints forum. This is a really clever idea where people post offers that they've come across together with a link to the offer. If anyone buys the item using the link posted, the poster gets a share of the saving.
The main problem with Rpoints is that it is not the market leader anymore. I've realised since joining that you can get more cash back on other websites. Rpoints apparently takes 50% of any deal whereas other sites such as Cashback Kings give you the whole 100% of the saving.
I suspect I'll be with Rpoints until I can get the money I've earned redeemed and then I'll swap.
R Points is a site i joined a couple of years ago, and have since stopped using. Tempted by the recommendation by Money Saving Expert, Martin Lewis, i joined thinking i was getting a fair deal, in fact i wasn't I made on the site over a couple of years just under one hundred pounds, pretty good but mostly it was due to me purchasing lots of CD's and DVD's in that year alone, BUT...i thought that they where only taking a small fraction % but IN FACT they where taking 50% when comparing to other similar websites that offer the same thing such as Cashback Kings, Quidco and GreasyPalm etc.
Cashback sites are new and exiting, mainly for people who are changing over the electricity or gas provider OR if you purchase a lot of things and give you back some of your cost on changing service or buying a product. You see when you buy something from a retailer they have a set amount of money to give to a lead (the site or company that brought you to their website to purchase that particular item) and what cashback sites do is they take that money and register the lead and get the money and basically split it with you and give it you back. This is allowed and has been going on for years, certain sites will give you 100% cashback like Quidco, but take a yearly fee for example of £5 but you will save a lot more in the long run.
R Points, on the other hand tend to only give you half of what they get so if i made under one hundred pounds so did they! which i found staggering since they took alot of money for not doing much...back then i didnt even know there where other sites, but saying that R Points is not that bad. It has it's plus sides too.
You can cash out with Paypal or BACS. They are safe so giving them your details should be OK. There are minimum's but they are marginally less than other similiar sites, the minimum payment is only £1.00 and they send it you really quick as well, i recommend BACS otherwise with Paypal it costs £0.50 to withdraw to a account etc, they have a number of other opitions like other payment sites as well.
R Points have a vast amount of members, growing ever so slightly ever day. The main aim of these people is to make money, so it makes sense to have a forum. They even have suggestions about certain offers like save 10% from argos this week with this code, vouchers codes. The forum has moderators and there are plenty of friendly people there telling about how to make money best with R Points etc and their suggestions for money saving
All in all, its a great site - my motto is it's free to join, you lose nothing, i think if you want a major share of the cashback choose another site, for a starter if you are not so confident use RPoints because they are really good and efficient and the site is really really simple to use. If you're still wondering are these a con, this doesn't sound right - it works,i have got money (not a huge amount) back from my spendings on the Internet, there's lots of retailers you have nothing to lose!
Rpoints has a very poor payout ratio compared to other cash back sites such as we promise to and cash back kings.
Casinos offering £10 or £15 via rpoints might go for as much as £25 on a 100% commission site.
The Rpoints forums are very good and I still use them despite not being an active member, also sometimes they give cash back for something which is not available on another site e.g. they are the only way I have found to get cash back for signing up for a Lloyds air miles credit card.
The money saving expert web site has a cash back maximiser tool which illustrates how the rates on Rpoints relate to the competition.
On the plus side you can cash out just £1 at a time by BACs and they do have a highest cash back guarantee (although it has restrictive terms).
In practise I suspect the guarantee just stops people shopping around because most users don't bother to research possible claims.
I am a rpoints user and have been one for the last few years. It is a website that basically gives you back some of the comission it receives whenever you use its links to visit another website and make a purchase. That is the backbone of the site but there are also ways to make money without spending a penny. You can do this by signing up to newsletters, playing games etc.
Money can be redeemed after you have earn't as little as a pound either as cash, amazon or play.com vouchers and a few other less known tome methods.
One of the most valuable aspects of the site is that the community forum section is bursting with tips to make and save money - worth checking the site out for this reason alone. You even earn a fiver for referring people to the site once they have earn't £25 worth of cash back.
In a quiet moment today I decided to look over some of the cashback sites I had previously joined in August but had decided not to continue with because I wasnt getting much cashback instantly, or i didnt like the layout of the site, or for some other reason.
One of these sites was Rpoints, which while I looked at it today I realised it looked very much like another site that I had joined called cashbackkings.
What I initially didnt like about the site was the layout, I didnt like how you couldnt do straight into the "daily clicks" section. Now that ive been using cashbackking I realised it wasnt so difficult after all. You have to go to the "easy money" section and then to "recurring earners".
In this site you earn points instead of pennies, 1 point is 1p, when you join you are given 500 points which is pretty generous, but, you dont get this money until you earn 2500 points yourself. Im sure this is the thing that put me off the first time!
If you forget about this 5 pounds though the payout scheme is pretty good, I did read on another site that you need 100 points to cashout via paypal and banktransfer but ive just checked the redemption section on the site and it says 1 point! The site says they do not send out cheques though, and if you want you money via moneybookers youll need 3000 points. There are some bonuses for cashing out a bigger amount via an electronic payment, anything over 1000 points will get you 100 points free! and over 50000 points will get you a free 1000 points. You also get a bit of a discount if you want an 5 pount amazon voucher as you only need 495 points for this.
If you want to refer someone you will have to wait until they get 2500 points in their account and then you will receive 500.
There is a extensive forum on this site which ive just skimmed over for now but it has nearly 30 topics to do with money saving as well as other topics ie sports and technology. Most of it seems to be advertising special offers on products on websites divided into categories and from what little ive seen it seemed like a lot of posts and not many replies to them, verging on spam I think. Im sure there must be a help forum somewhere but I couldnt find now.
The daily clicks that are availible at the moment add up to 15p. You can also get another 2p for every win4now competition you enter. Clicks have suffered recently due to searchchief and cashcadecompare halving the amount you can get from them. This has happened over all the sites im a member of and im not amused about it! Still with the options of cashout at 1p I can always get a small amount.
When I looked at my account details I realised id already accumilated 53 points in the few days I was using the site before I got fed up with it. Every one of my clicks had tracked! All I needed to do was be patient and wait for them to show up! The money is all pending though, and on the "my transactions" section of the "my account" tab I saw that the "award date" of my money is 2 months after I had clicked them! This seems to be the standard amount of time for all daily clicks on this site.
Ive decided that im going to give this site another go, with the very low payout amount all I need is the patience to wait the 2 months for my cash to become availible.
Rpoints is a site where you earn cashback for completing offers or buying goods. The same goods as you would usually buy on the high street. For example you want to buy a hoover at Dixons, the chances are that Rpoints will offer you cashback if you buy the hoover through them. In a way they cut out the need for advertising for a shop, as you just click through the site.
Joining R points is very easy and you get £5 for doing so, however this £5 is only made payable when you earn £25. All you need to join is an email adress and a paypal account, or bank account if you wish to be paid in bacs. Validate your email address and away you go.
How it works.
Rpoints works on points and 100 points is £1 500 points £5. As soon as you have 100 points validated you can transfer it to your account. Merchants advertise offers in different catergories and offer different rewards usually gambling and phone contracts pay the most, For example you may get 10,000 points for opening a savings account and placing in a pound. You complete the offer and in a few days the points will show in your account but then it could take a month to validate before you withdraw the points.
There are lots of offers that cost nothing, for example if you click through Thehighstreet price comparison you get 2 points, or order a free orange sim card then get 50 points. All free money.
You can also get money from refering friends, for example each referal earns 500 points and also earns 500 for the new member. http://www.rpoints.com/?ruid=252075
Some times offers dont track and Rpoints are slow to remove dead links, so only pay for something if you really need it. Also money some times takes a long time to clear. My advice is to complete all of the free offers. However Rpoints has antother sister site called cashbackkings that operates in the same way but takes £5 in admin rather than giving you £5 but then it pays double cashback. http://www.cashbackkings.com/?ruid=3006256
