i joined my shopping rewards about 2 months ago and it is free to join and you get 3.50 for joining
i found the site to be quite good and while it is really easy to move round the site from page to page and find what your looking for it does take a while to process your money,
once your account has reached £20 they will automatically send you a cheque for the amount earned,i have earned £40 but i am still waiting for confirmed status to go onto my account before i can recieve any earned money,i have actually been waiting for about 3-4 months.
i keep checking but have not had any change to my account so stopped shopping to wait and see if anything happens first.
im sure the money will come in the end as it has a lot of members but just a bit of a pain to wait,may be different for you!
I first came across this website by chance when i typed in cashback into googles search engine
Pretty standard form in my opinion . It asks for information like date of birth,name,email adress etc. They give you £3.50 for signing up and if you get someone to refer you they get a fiver once you have earned your first £20.
Easy to navigate,everythings stated clearly
* Shops and Businesses *
There are loads of shops on this from avon to forbidden planet.
* Problems *
i had no problems with this website until i got near the pay mark-now things are not tracking as well as they used to. Once i get to the £20 i am going to stop using this site
Like other cashback sites this one also offers daily cashback on kelko and the high street web. One thing i dont like about them is that they only allow 1000 per month for their entire member base.If other sites can do it all month why cant they?
I first heard about myshoppingrewards (MSR) from my sister. I thought it sounded good so I signed up under her referral link. I first joined in 2006 and I still log into my account regularly.
~ The Website ~
The website is easy to navigate with coloured tool bars which make it look eye catching. When you go to the website the main part of the page is asking you join. This is an attractive design and tells you that if you sign up you will get a £3.50 sign up bonus. Signing up is simple, and you have to provide the usual details (name, date of birth, email, home address - so they can send the cheque, etc)
Once you are signed up you are ready to begin. Once logged into your account, there is a purple box on the right hand side of the page with the account information. This tells you your current balance, and there are links to pages where you can update your details, refer friends or alter newsletter settings etc.
The toolbar across the top of the page is green and allows you to access your favourites, vouchers, competitions, easy cash, free stuff and help. These are easy to use and make the site easy to navigate. I didn't use the favourites at first, but now that I do more online shopping I have added the shops that I use most often and this makes logging into MSR quicker and more convenient before doing the shopping that you would usually do.
~ Shops and Businesses ~
There is a large list of categories in a yellow tool bar on the left side of the page. The top link is 'All shops' so you can search for the shop you are looking for or browse through the categories.
There are a huge number of shops listed on MSR and I always make a point of going through here whenever I shop online to see if cashback is offered.
Each website offers a different amount of cashback ranging from 0.1% - 10% or a set value. There are many major retailers as well as ones I haven't heard of previously.
I use a number of different websites regularly including Avon (4% cashback), The Book People (2.5%) and ebay (15% of fees cashback). I have also used a number of other websites on various occasions including Blackwell Books, Waterstones, Hawkins Bazaar and play.com.
My car insurance was due for renewal in December so I decided to look on here. I found a quote I was happy with from More Than and I placed my order and got £22.50 cashback. This was the cheapest quote I could find as I had only been driving for 1 year, so not only was the insurance cheaper, I got cashback too!
~ Problems ~
I have not had many problems with cashback not appearing in my account but when I bought a book from Blackwell's, the cashback offered was 5% and it did not appear in my account. You have to wait at least 2 weeks before you can submit a 'ticket' about missing cashback. I did this and had to fill in the details of the order (order number, shop, order amount, date etc) and a couple of weeks later I got my cashback. The website states that they will look into any cashback not received but they cannot guarantee that the retailer will pay out. This is the only problem I had and it was sorted out quite quickly so it won't stop me placing future orders.
~ Easy Cashback ~
There are also daily clicks with websites such as the high street web, kelkoo and buy central. These offer between 1p and 5p for searching through them and if you do this every day it soon adds up. I don't do a large amount of online shopping but I log into MSR most days and this adds up and keeps my account balance increasing.
You can also sign up to survey sites or newsletters etc for set amounts, which also boosts the account balance nicely.
~ Payment ~
The cashback usually appears into your account the next day but it appears as 'pending' but doesn't appear as confirmed for a couple of months. Once the confirmed balance has reached £20 you automatically get sent a cheque on the next payment day (once a month). By the time my money has become confirmed I usually have about £26 and I have had 3 payments meaning that I've earned £81.65 in total in the two years I've been using it. I also have £14 in my account. This may not sound like a lot for the length of time but it is money I would not have had and I would have done the same online shopping anyway.
The website notifies the members when the payment has been sent out and the three payments I've had have come a few days later.
~ Referring Friends ~
If you refer a friend you can earn £5 when they reach a confirmed balance of £20. I have referred a few people but no one has reached the £20 yet so I have not received the bonus. However, when I reached my first £20 my sister received the (then £8) referral bonus without any problems.
~ Advantages ~
· Lots of shops
· Good cashback amounts
· Once payment is sent it arrives quickly
~ Disadvantages ~
· Takes a while for pending money to become confirmed
~ Overall ~
I would recommend this website even if you don't do a huge amount of online shopping as you might as well have the cashback from the small amount you do. You can also boost your earnings with the daily clicks and sign ups and even if it takes a while it will all add up. I really like this site and although I've joined other cashback sites I always come back to this one, as I feel loyal to it. If you are interested in joining let me know and I'll send you my referral link.
Thanks for reading!
MyShoppingRewards.com is another one of those cashback sites which instead of giving cashback to its members, tends to waste their time and pay them nothing. In fact it should be renamed MyShoppingPunishment.com. I've never been that active on this site because other similar sites such as Rpoints and Greasy Palm have always had better offers or better deals and you tend to know where you are regarding payments. Nevertheless over time I have accumulated some cashback.
The system works like this:
When you receive cashback for an item it immediately goes into a pending category and stays there for a couple of months or so before it is transferred and added to your true total. This is the amount you can withdraw once it has reached a total of more than £20.
When you reach this amount you will receive a cheque automatically for exactly £20. So say you reach £24, you will be left with £4 left in your account which you won't be able to get your hands on until you pass the £20 barrier once more. However, once you reach £20 or more you have to wait a further 2 months before your cheque is sent. In other words, MyShoppingRewards seems to use every trick in the book to delay or stop its members from getting their payment.
I have been a member for... it must be about 12 months and I reached a cashback total of just over £20 about two months ago. I was due for a pay out on the first of August. Well that's what I thought. I had already heard a few negative stories about this site - about cashback not being paid or money going missing, so I made sure to log in and check my account on a regular basis. Last week I had a surprise. My total is now only £18. None of my cashbacks have been reversed but obviously some have been removed from my account without explanation - just enough so that I am below £20. I have sent emails asking for an explanation but as you might guess they received no response. Even if I make up the total again with £2 worth of cashback, this now means that I will now have to wait at least a further 4 months in order to get to a £20 cashback total - two months on pending and two months for the cheque. And in four months time how do I know that they are not going to remove again some of the cashback I've earned so that my total dips below £20 again? In theory it could take years and years to get my cashback during which time even larger parts of the UK will be under water.
All I can conclude is to recommend that nobody becomes a member of this site.
I have actually received my £20 cheque. I eventually received a reply to my emails coincidently a week or two after I wrote this review. Apparently there had been some fault in the calculations and there had been a delay in their response due to their offices being flooded.
My conclusion is still the same because there is simply no excuse for these sites to hold on to member's money for so long. Some sites pay straight away so why can't they all do the same?
I am beginning to think this site is a con. You need to earn £20..0 before they pay out. I have £11.56 in my account so far. 4 months ago I joined Virgin Poker through the site, this should have earned me £20.00 and therefore putting me over the amount so I should get paid.
I e-mailed them about the lack of payment they then said they had not tracked the sign up to Virgin. I have kept the e-mail in June they sent me and the following days confirmation from Virgin that I have joined.
I have since sent several e-mails asking about the status of payment I dont even get a reply. It looks to me that once you get near to the amount they have to pay out then they dont respond at all.
Many other sites that seem to play fair.
I think that Myshoppingrewards.com is one of the better cashback sites.
It has a huge number of shops and outlets that provide cashback either as a percentage ranging from 0.5% to upwards of 5%, or as a lumpsum. I recently changed my car insurance and because I dir it through myshoppingrewards.com I gained £50 cashback making the overall cost of the insurance a lot tedious.
You can also gain small amounts og money by conducting searches through search engines such as Buy Central, the High Street Web and Kelkoo. It is a bit tedious but can bring in about 25p a day which soon adds up. Unfortunately, sometimes you do not always get all the points you think you should.
There is also cashback for joining survey and competition sites and for entering competitions.
When you first sign up you get a £3.50 joining bonus and the opportunity to sign up for various other newsletters at 5p a time. Also there is £8 to be gained for every friend you refer. If you decide to join up I would love to refer you! Contact me here first!
It all sounds very good but the downside is that you have to wait until you have £20 in your account before you are sent a cheque. Not too bad you might say but it also takes them about two months to confirm each payment even though the casback is credited within two days normally. Therefore although you might have reached the magical £20 fairly quickly you then have to wait another two months before you receive your money!
Having said that I still think that it is a good site and I feel quite loyal to it. If you shop online regularly it is always worth seeing if you can go through Myshoppingrewards first. And the money does add up! I have been a member since February and fully expect that by Christmas I will have earned about £125+.
MyShoppingRewards.com to me was one of the best things that came out of Sweet Collect. This is how I got to hear about them it was when I was signing up with Sweet Collect that I registered with My Shopping Rewards (MSR).
MSR is an internet loyalty site which rewards you in cash, yes I can hear you all saying not another one of these con sites but this one isnt.
First of all when you register you are given £3.50 as a bonus then you can choose to join other websites etc that will get you more cash back and this wont cost you a penny. You can also get cash rewards when you shop online from stores such as HMV and Woolworths in fact there are over 500 cash back sites linked with MSR. You will only get the cash back if you go through the link on MSR.
How it works is as you are going through the MSR link this registers with then and the retailer gives MSR commission for this which they then pass some onto you.
Registering is easy just go to the home page and click the join button it is a simple and quick process and the form is self explanatory. You will be sent an activation email which you must do in order to access your account.
The home page is well set out and is very colourful but not overpowering, I find it easy to navigate through each section.
Along the top are the main categories and they are coloured green. Down the left hand side of the screen you will at first come to the offer of the week which is usually relating to applying for credit cards etc. Then you come to the shop category section which is set alphabetically or you can click all shops and then choose the letter of the shop you are looking for.
There are categories such as Easy Cash and Free Stuff this means that you have to join other websites or perhaps just do a search for which you have your daily clicks and can add any site you visit regularly to your favourites.
Down the right hand side of the screen is your login space and a list of the latest offers its worth a while taking a look here as sometimes I have found something that stands out to me.
Once you have logged in this area shows your account details and is updated each day so if you click on your account balance it takes you to another screen where there are 4 coloured headings.
Total - blue
Confirmed - Green
Pending - yellow
Reversed - Red
Now here is where I should tell you of a downside of the site in that it takes 60 days for any payments to be classed as confirmed this is just in case you send anything back etc. If you return anything etc then it goes into the reverse section.
There is a payment date each month and once you have reached £20 minimum in your confirmed section you are paid by cheque the following payday which is usually the first working day of each month but if you go to the home page it will give you the next date.
Now you can refer a friend and when they join up and gets their first £20 confirmed you get £8 into your account yes I know this could take a while but if both of you do a lot of shopping online it will be worth it.
Well there is nothing else I can really tell you about this site apart from if you want to join and want a refer link I will add it to the bottom of this review.
Here is my refer code if you want to join up feel free to use this link
