I can’t lie. I love a bargain. I always have. The rush from grabbing a good deal has always been with me. Hell, it’s not just mums who like a bargain. I want to know that I’m getting value for money and that I’m not being conned. Simple as!  It’s even more important for me as I HATE shopping – at least for some things. I want to go into a shop and get what I want and get out. So how do I make sure that I’m not spending money necessarily?

It helps me find the best deal out there and rewards me with a little extra money back in the form of cashback – sometimes I also get a little money off. It is based on a very simple premise – shop online at your usual stores and get cashback.
