“ Earn cashback whe you shop online in many of your favourite stores. „
In essence Greasypalm is a cash back site which allows you to get cash back on purchases. Greasy palm covers a range of areas such as finance, electricals, travel, books, DVDs, etc.
HOW IT WORKS
By clicking on a link through this site it takes you to the site of the product and you buy as normal. You're then creditted with cashback! For example: I want to buy Twilight on DVD. I go to Greasy Palm and search for HMV. HMV.com is there and I use the link to get to the site. I then purchase as normal through HMV. Instantly I get a credit onto my greasy palm account. This is often only 1% or less but it actually does add up.
There are numerous different options where you can get cash back for. For example, you can get cashback for changing credit cards, buying flights, trains, CDs, electricals, energy bills, etc. There are a lot of different retailers and some very, very prominant ones namely lastminute.com, the trainline, Late rooms, Halifax, HMV, Ebay... I could go on! There are also non spend cashback options which can help. Money is paid by BACS when you receive a certain amount and you do not have to request it, it just happens.
It can take a while to credit you and you have to chase things up. You also have to acknowledge a complaint within a 150 days or you cannot get the cashback which is a nightmare. Late Rooms are a particularly bad one!!
I like the site and it isn't exactly difficult to click trhough them. I think people with houses and families often benefit more than I do as they can swap suppliers, etc where as I have no need to do that. I think every little helps so no harm eh?! Also, Ebay is on there!!
Greasypalm is a Cashback website which allows you to make money on your online purchases along with numerous other offers.
WHAT IS IT
The main purpose of this website as far as I can see is to get further reductions from online shops when you use it. This is a good way to get some great bargains. It even gives you the opportunity to get a paid to click income and also the opportunity to gain some income from numerous other cashback for sign-up offers.
OPENING AN ACCOUNT
To apply for the offers available first you need to register with the site. This is a simple matter of inputting your details, name, address, login id etc. Upon joining you get an initial £2.50 to help you get a boost to your savings and to give you a bit of a head start on your road to making it to the magical £25 (the pay out value).
You will receive regular emails informing you of the latest money off offers. This can be quite useful to highlight current offers which you may not have noticed on the actual website. These emails do come a little too regularly and are a bit of a pain after a while. The offers in the emails tend to focus on the ones for gambling sites and energy companies. You do of course have the option of ignoring any offers you do not have an interested in.
There are multiple ways of making money with this website. Along with getting the cashback on online purchases I found that the best way was to sign up to gambling sites (Over 18's only). These sites would usually offer you a £20 cashback when you signed up with £10. You could then have a little flutter knowing that if you lost your money on the gambling site you still had doubled your money with the cashback. These gambling sites would often double the sign up value aswell giving you a slightly better chance of winning big. Other cash back activities included surveys and competitions. You can even get extra bonus payments of £7 for each friend you recommend.
I am usually very wary about giving my account details to sites like this but I did on this occasion and I did not regret it. If you have made over £25 that month you are included in the payment roll and on the next payday the funds will be transferred directly into your account. In the first month of using this account I made about £250 which is not enough to live off but it is a little extra spending money in your pocket.
I found that with some of the deals I had undertaken the money took a little while to appear in my account so I had to contact the help desk. This help system is a little complicated and it took a while for my account to be corrected but although they were a little slow to react they eventually sorted the problem account.
Finding this website opened a whole new world of shopping to me. Now if I need to buy something online instead of buying it straight from the website I now visit a cashback site. Going through these websites can offer you significant savings. Greasy palm is linked to many online shops just log on to the website you want and make the purchase as usual this will generate cash back for you. When you get £25 or more in your Greasy Palm it is paid directly into your account.

Greasy Palm - in a nutshell this is a cashback website where you sign up for free and earn cashback on online purchases. You can spend a lot of time and effort trying to maximise your cashback, or you can use it for 'money for nothing' on stuff you'd buy anyway - which is mostly my approach.
Loads of people have gone into detail on how it works so I'm focussing my review on one aspect.
I hesitated about writing a review for Greasy Palm as there are rather a lot of reviews of it already - but on a quick scan through, quite a few seem to cite the problem of forgetting to go to Greasy Palm before buying so missing out on cashback. There is a solution to this! If you sign up to their 'Rebate Catcher' not only do you get an extra 20p cashback (well, you know every penny helps!) but more importantly you never miss cashback again. With the rebate catcher installed, you don't even have to go through the Greasy Palm website - it automatically registers when you shop from one of their affiliated sites, and tracks your cashback accordingly.
This is brilliant if like me you don't want to have to remember to check Greasy Palm every time you buy something online. The cashback just builds up quietly in the background, and every so often a payment appears in my account. I do check the GP site every so often for particularly good deals or to check all my transactions have been approved - and on that note, I've always found they have chased up 'pending' transactions for me and I've been paid in the end.
My only niggle is that the site does have a lot of cashback offers for bingo websites etc - I know people with gambling issues so this does concern me. That's the only reason I've gone for 4 stars instead of 5. One more reason I prefer to use the rebate catcher!
Greasypalm.co.uk is a typical cashback website, and the first one I signed up for. Having been a member for a year and a half now I've managed to earn a decent amount of cashback.
So how does it work? Well, put simply, the idea is that if you're buying something online, you should go to the greasypalm website first and check for appropriate retailers. Click through to those retailers from the greasypalm site and buy your product as you would normally. greasyplam then puts the cashback in your online greasypalm account.
The cashbacks vary widely, for a lot of traditional retail stores it will be a percentage of the order value, e.g. 5 or 10%. For companies such as utility companies, or insurance companies, they typically offer a fixed sum, say £50 for taking one of their products.
Where does the money come from? It works on the affiliate marketing idea, in that when greasypalm refers you to a retailers website, they get a chunk of money. You in turn get a chunk of that. Its a win win situation for all really as the retailer makes a sale, you get a little bit of money, and greasypalm gets a little bit of money - so everyones happy! Fo rmore detail on how it works, I've written an article on this on hubpages at http://hubpages.com/hub/Greasypalm-Cashback-Site The article also has a useful tip for how to make a little extra cashback on some of the gambling sites ;)
In terms of how i've found the site, its very easy to use, navigate and search. The cashback is normally paid into your greasypalm account fairly quickly, depending on the retailer, and is paid once you've earned £25 or more, directly into your bank account. There is however a 30 day waiting period before you get paid.
They have a reminder service so you can set yourself a little memo that you've clicked through to a retailer and are expecting cashback. If the cashback doesnt appear within 30 days, you can create a ticket to the support queue and they will contact the retailer on your behalf. This can take quite a while in some cases though, but if its valid you'll get it eventually. I've had a couple of tickets and the helpdesk have been great at responding to them.
I really like this site, and its become habit now that before I buy anything online, I check greasypalm to see if theres a relevant retailer there. Its money for stuff you were buying anyway! :)
Another reviewer on here has written that you should beware of easy money. After using this site, I can only agree. I signed up to Greasy Palm after seeing it on moneysavingexpert and decided it was worth a go to try and earn some extra cash. I don't do a lot of online shopping, so chose this site as it seemed to have some very good no spend cashbakc offers.
The first one I completed was a free trial with Love Film, which promised me £10 in cashback. So, I signed up to Love Film, ordered my first free DVD returned it within the time and waited. My cashback validated straight away pretty much, and I was happy as I had gotten £10 and a free film. While I wasn't impressed with Love FIlm as the DVD took ages to arrive (and was damaged when it did) and they charged my account in spite of me only taking and sticking to the free trial this was no fault of Greasy Palm, and Love Film refunded me eventually.
I've completed a number of smaller offers, such as signing up to survey sites and click throughs to boost my cashback. The problems have started with a sign up to Mecca Games bingo site. I was promised £20 cashback if i deposited and played through £5, with a £10 deposit match. After having no problems with Mecca the cashback showed up as pending on my Greasy Palm account. And it has stayed pending now for long over the 30 days average payout time cited by Greasy Palm.
Here lies the problem with the website. You can't query pending cashback until 120 days after the cashabck was earned, and only within a limit of 180 days. Now I'm really annoyed by this. My account balance shows nearly £37, well over the £25 payout threshold. Surprise surprise, the transaction which would make them pay out to me won't validate. I've read other feedback about this website which has shown I'm not the only one to have this exact problem - smaller cashback amounts which they leave unpaid until the threshold validate fine, then larger ones will stay pending. Seems to me this website is a rip off!!
I fully don't expect to get my cashback. The only thing that saves me from being really annoyed is the fact that I more than doubled my £5 deposit on Mecca Bingo. But this website is poor - it's support system is terrible and I'd be willing to bet it keeps your cashback for itself.
I first discovered cashback websites about six months ago and joined quite a few of them but Greasypalm.co.uk is not one I am a big fan of.
Cashabck websites basically involve getting a little bit of cashback everytime you shop online if you fist go to the cashback site and click through to the retailer via the site. However, this is not the only thing you can do, you sign up for offers ie. competitions and survey sites and gat a small reward for doing so,such as 50p. Some offer daily clicks, where you can click through to a site and get maybe 1p for doing this, greasypalm only seems to offer one of these though, the Highstreetweb gets you 2p a day. Another thing you can do is join gambling websites and you usually get a better return for your money, for example join Jackpotjoy and deposit £20 and they will give you £20 cashback........easy money,or so you might think.
Becoming a member of bingo and gambling sites I thought would be a great way of getting cashback, but I found that often I was not paid the cashback. I would deposit £10 but when I didn't receive any cashback I'd lost £10 instead of making some money, and I'm not a big fan of gambling so I would have never have done this normally without the incentive of the cashback. This happened to me a few times and although you can report missing cashback nothing seems to come of it. I have also had £15 from one retailer in my account and it has been pending for about 5 months so I am not confident I will get that anytime soon.
I once heard that cashback sites are great if you are going to do the shopping anyway but never take up offers just to get the cashback, it is an added bonus if you receive it. I wish I had listened to this advice when I first started doing this and then I wouldn't have lost money.
On a more positive note I did receive a payment of £32 which went straight into the bank without any problems. They pay out after you reach £25.
I have been a member of Greasypalm.co.uk for about two years now. It is a website which offers a small percentage of cashback from online purchases. In addition, you can also earn cashback without spending anything, for example for signing up to various websites or doing internet searches for 2p per search. I don't bother with these any more, and I prefer to use Quidco (another cash back site) for getting money back on my purchases, as they offer better rates. These days, I use Greasypalm exclusively for signing up to gambling sites, and get as much as double my initial deposits back.
I have to state here that I'm not a gambler and I would never put my own money at stake. If you gamble the way I gamble, you'll always win in the long run. Here's how it works: First, you need to sign up as a new user to one of the numerous gambling sites through Greasypalm.co.uk. Second, you need to deposit and play through a minimum amount of your own money, usually £10. Look at it as an investment. Once you have cleaned out your account (i.e. lost everything) leave the gambling site! Do not under any circumstances be tempted to deposit any more of your own money - chances are you'll lose it. Third, wait for up to three months for your cashback to be credited to your Greasypalm account. You usually get £20 back for a £10 deposit. Some deals may be better or less good than this. Just make sure your cashback amount is more than your initial deposit. I have made about £60 pounds cashback this way, with £30 profit, just by using three gambling sites. Easy money and I even had fun playing.
Where's the catch? Well, there's no catch if you're clever. Don't get sucked in! Take the money and run! Greasypalm will transfer your cashback within 30 days once you have acquired a minimum of £25 in your account. I'm awaiting my second payout within a couple of months. Do keep an eye on your account thought, as once they failed to credit my cashback from one of their partners. I sent them an inquiry and they sorted it out, although it did take a while. This is the only reason I gave them four stars instead of five. Otherwise, they're excellent. You even get £2.50 credited to your account when you first sign up and £7 if you refer a friend when they have reached their first payout threshold of £25. Please note, you need to be over 18 years of age to gamble in the UK.
I joined up to Greasy Palm about 3 years ago, and in that time I have earnt just short of £200 from the site. There are many ways of earning money, including signing up to sites, signing up to offers, clicking on internet search sites, answering surveys, taking out credit cards, or opening bank saving s accounts etc.
You receive a joining bonus of £2:50 when you join up, and once you reach £25 you are paid out via Bank Transfer, Amazon gift vouchers, or Via PayPal. When you first join up there are laods of one off offers to sign up to, like filling in a short form (takes about 30 seconds) to receive a free Orange sim card delivered to your house, not only do you get the free sim card, but you also get 30p credited to your Greasy Palm account. Anyone who likes online betting (like myself), can also make a lot of money by signing up to all the different online bookmakers, and online Bingo sites through Greasy palm. I signed up to loads of them, as you cannot lose, 2 examples of this are
1. I signed up to Coral, and credited £10 into my new Coral Acoount, and they cash matched my deposit, so I had £20 worth of bets for £10!! On top of this I also got £12:50 cashback credited to my greasy Palm account. So I pay £10 which I would have done anyway with my normal online bookmaker, and receive £20 in bets, plus £12:50, so a £22:50 profit, just for signing up to a new online bookmaker.
2. I signed up to Sun Bingo, credited the sunbingo account with £20, and they gave me £20 for free, so £40 in the sun bingo account, and then Greasy palm credit my account with £20 cashback for joining up through their site, so for £20, I get £40 bingo money, and £20 cashback, = £40 profit!!
Well worth joining up to in my opinion, its great when you hit the £25, and wait for the money to arrive in whatever manner you chose. Its EASY 8-)
Greasy palm is a site where you can make money for nothing if your'e lucky !!! Half the transactions dont go through and I spend half my time chasing transactions. It seems the more the transaction is worth the harder it is to get the cashback. Even with all the transactions details such as order number / account details doesnt guarantee money in your account. I have had over £50 worth of money refused despite doing everything by the book. If you have time and money to waste you may enjoy this site but suggest you try Ipoints first.
This is a cash back website, so similar to the "We promise to pay website", they could be related (I belong to both).
If you shop online, this is a good way to get even further reductions on the things you buy. First you need to register with the site. You will actually be paid £2.50 when you register to start your savings.
When you want to buy something, rather than going directly to the website you want, login to Greasy Palm. The website has hundreds of links to all sorts of goods and services that will generate cash back for you. Click on the link for the website of the company you want to buy from. When the site opens, shop as normal. Then you will get your cash added to your Greasy Palm account. When you have £25 or more, they will pay you after 30 days.
There are also different cash back activities like surveys and competitions. You can even get extra bonus payments of £7 for each friend you recommend.
You will receive regular emails informing you of the latest money off offers. This can be quite useful. The site will try to promote a number of Gambling sites. I personally find this irritating. You can ignore any offers you are not interested in.
Greasypalm is one of the market leaders in terms of online cashback sites. Grasypalm are paid an amount of money by their affiliates, every time someone clicks through their page and purchases something. Very simply, Greasypalm return an amount of this money back to the shopper so as to encourage shoppers to use the links on their website.
Setting up an account is all very straightforward and a helpful tutorial shows you how to start earning cashback. The site allows people to review cashback providers so shoppers can use the most reputable partners. Greasypalm has many partners that are listed by category. You can also register a bank card to start earning you cashback with specific high street partners too such as JJB Sports and Halfords. However, in order to withdraw any cashback, you must earn £20. I would say this is pretty straight forward as I managed over £90 in 2 months and this was paid straight into my bank account. Many partners such as Lovefilm, give £10 cashback for a 2 week trial. This can be cancelled at the end of the trial. You then pay nothing and still receive the cashback.
In conclusion, Greasypalm are one of a few companies that offer cashback free of charge. However, they take around 50% of the affiliate cashback. In contrast Quidco, deduct £5 from your first sum of cashback but do in fact pay you the whole sum of the cashback afterwards. Therefore, I would suggest this represents better value for money in the long run. If you have any questions please ask as this is a scheme I have used a lot.
Ive never really been one for cash back sites, the main reason being that I do not do much shopping online, and when I do I often forget to go through the cash back site - as I write this I realise I have made a couple of purchases on Amazon today and forgotten to go through a cash back site!
I joined Greasy Palm because someone suggested that I should as they give cash back on Ebay purchases - I do alot of shopping on Ebay so I thought I would give it a go.
When you join Greasy Palm you get a £2.50 sign up bonus to get you started which I think is quite generous.
There are many ways to earn cash back, the most obvious one is by shopping online and recieving a percentage of your purchase as cash back. Other ways to earn money are signing up to newsletters and offers, taking part in free trials, signing up to other websites and registering for freebies.
I think the best way to earn big lots of cash back is for things like applying for credit cards, switching bank accounts, signing up to bingo/betting sites and taking trials with places like Love Film and Blockbuster.
To recieve a payout you must have accumulated at least £25. This amount must have been in your account for 30 days and payouts are made one a month.
I do find Greasy Palm a bit frustrating because it can take a while to get your cash back approved. For example I took part ina free trial with Blockbuster for which I should recieve £8, however I did this in December and it is now May and the transaction is still showing as pending on my account and it is because of this one transaction that I have been unable to recieve a payout yet, I have around £20 of confirmed cash back and I need that £8 to be confirmed before I will be able to get a payout.
If your like me and forget to go through cash back sites before making your purchases, Greasy Palm offers a rebate catcher, if you install it every time you visit a website which you can earn cash back from, the catcher will log it with Greasy Palm so you will recieve your chas back. You will be rewarded with 20p for installing the rebate catcher too!
Personally the only purchases I have made through Greasy Palm, are through Ebay, this is not very lucrative because you do not actually get a percentage of what you spend as I thought when I joined up, what you actually get is a percentage of what Ebay makes from the sellers fee for the item you have purchased. I find that I am better off using my Necter account where I get a point per pound I spend, but when I forget to go through Necter, the rebate catcher picks up on my purchases - though if your not using the rebate catcher it is advisable to make sure you go through Greasy palm both when you bid and when you pay to ensure that your cash back is awarded.
Also if you get a new computer you need to remember to re-install the rebate catcher, which I forgot to do when I got this laptop and writing this review has reminded me!
If you do alot of shopping online then this is a great site to use. Its easy to navigate and it set out in sections and categories so it is easy to find where you canget cash back from, you can also enter a shop into thr search and if you get cash back for that site it will come up with a link for you to go through.
Im not going to make any real fortune with Greasy palm, but when Blockbuster finally give the okay on my cash back from them I will recieve £28 straight into my bank account, thats £28 for doing pretty much nothing, so Im not grumbling!
Greasy Palm is a cash back site that offers you money back on purchase that you make online through them. The site is easy to sign up to and is well set out so easy to navigate, when you sign up to them you get a £2.50 bonus to start you off. To earn cash back on purchases you have to browse through the retailers and click on the link to the retailer it will tell you what % if cash back you will get before you go to the retailer.
As well as shopping you can earn money by referring friends, completing offers like signing up to a newsletter, and post special offers which gives you cash back on people that purchase it.
Most offers take a few weeks for you to get your cash back but the site is updated regularly so you can see when it is offered, you can request a withdrawal once a month but you have to had earned over £25 and you can request it paid straight into you bank.
A easy site to use that gives you money for buying items you were going to buy anyway, not one of the best sites but a good site with a good special offers and different ways of earning money.
As I mentioned in my last review I have tried out quite a few cash back sites with limited success however one of the very few that I actually managed to reac the cash out amount of £25 for is Greasypalm. Like all cash back sites this one pays out a percentage of your spend on a whole range of sites when you access them through the links on the website. You can also earn money through daily clicks and visiting certain sites and filling out survey information.
Often with the free click options there is no purchase necessary or you get to order a trial sample of a product so you get something for nothing. Using a particular search engine will also generate a small payment.
The site is well set out and easy to navigate and it has a good range of offers available to choose from and beneft from, it is not always the highest payer but on average the offers are good value and easy to follow however as always you do have to read the small print.
Signing up is pretty easy and attracts a payment of £2.50, while there is some easy money to be had at the end of the day if you do not make any purchases then you will struggle to reacjh a cash out amount however an insurance policy gained me a decent payout.
I opted for payment by Bacs and the payment came through to my account about a month after I registered for it so they do pay out, alternatively you can opt for Amazon vouchers instead.
Overall not a bad site to use and certainly it does not requite too much effort.
Greasypalm.co.uk is a cash back rewards site that pays varying percentages of cash back to your Greasypalm account when you make purchases with specific retailers by way of "clicking through" the links on the Greasypalm web site.
In addition there are a number of suggested link lists each day that are titled, "Easy Money", "Daily Cashback", "No Purchase Cashback" and "Freebies".
These links take you to lists of cashback offers that you can get for things like joining a pet food club, requesting a free sim card or requesting a sample of a giving up smoking aid.
As long as you read the small print carefully on these there is no problem in picking up easy cashback for virtually doing nothing.
There is a very simple 2p per day just for using a search engine they list; limited to one search per day.
There are many cash backs listed for gaming companies, credit cards and other financial sector stuff. If you are going to do any of the gaming ones be especially careful to check out what they really entail.
A very nice feature of the web site is that next to each cashback offer are reviews by other members of the site. So you can read these reviews and suss things out first before making a decision.
When you sign up to "Greasy" as it's known you get £2.50 as an immediate bonus. I have been a member for about 10 days and I am already on £10.50 although I have pretty much exhausted all of the really easy money. For example I have about 16 free sim cards in my drawer from offers I have taken up. I will probably never use the Sim cards but they have given me an easy £1.20 in cash. It's now likely that I will be mainly picking up the 2p per day until such a time as the web site adds some new dead simple cashbacks that don't involve much time or effort.
If you are a dedicated freebie "merchant" and have the time to carefully log and monitor everything you do I think you may be able to get yourself around 50 quid's worth of easy money but this will involve some sign ups to trial offers that you will have to be careful to then cancel 7 days later or similar.
The minimum cash out level is £25 and it is paid by BACS or by Amazon vouchers 30 days in arrears. The Amazon voucher option attracts a 5% bonus.
I haven't got enough for my first cashout yet but I haven't heard any stories of this firm not paying out so assume that it is all good and above board.
For me and for people without bags of time to click on everything on the site, it will probably be a 6 month project in order to get to the £25 level.
Even so, one of the better rewards/cashback sites that I have seen so far.
