Tips and advice on on the latest coupons, cashback offers and free stuff from around the web

newbie guide

Before you start your couponing and cashback adventures we recommend taking the following steps:

  • Set up a separate dedicated couponing email address and if you can, turn off the spam filter so you can catch all the latest deals.
  • If you dont have one already, set up a Paypal account to receive cashback funds. (Do this if you dont want to be giving out your bank details to multiple sites)
  • Sign up to all of the supermarket loyalty cards and keep them with you at all times. (Useful for Wombling)
  • Follow our Facebook and Twitter feeds and enable notifications.
  • Get a cheap printer and set it as the default printer on your PC.
