No Excuse Not to Provide for Retirement(August 02, 2011)
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 2 August 2011
As the Workplace Retirement Income Commission, led by Lord McFall, issues a report calling for changes to pension schemes, there are steps that those working towards retirement and pensioners alike can take themselves to save. Cashback & Voucher code websites such as Quidco.com allow consumers to earn hundreds of pounds back on new insurance policies and telephone contracts, as well as everyday shopping.
The Workplace Retirement Income Commission states that Britain needs to be a nation of savers' but some families and individuals dont have anything extra to save. Using a cashback site for all of their shopping can allow them to supplement their annual income by as much as £1,000. Every time a cashback site user makes a purchase or arranges their utilities or insurance, they earn a portion of the price back. Some Quidco members earn over £1,500 a year in cashback.
Cashback is available on all household items and contracts:
- Car insurance: £80 cashback (Aviva)
- Home insurance: £80 cashback (Aviva)
- Groceries: £7.50 cashback (Ocado)
- Gas and electricity: £80 cashback (npower)
- Mobile: £275 cashback for an iPhone 4 on T-mobile Unlimited (mobiles.co.uk)
- TV and internet: £150 cashback for phone, internet and TV bundle (Virgin Media)
Hannah Green, PR Manager from Quidco.com, said, Online shopping is not just for the young and tech savvy. Cashback sites are so easy to use and offer savings on all of the items that people need before and during retirement. Clicking through a cashback site before every shop and putting aside every penny of cashback earned could pay an extra £1,000 a year toward an individuals pension.
Cashback offers range from 8% cashback on electricals to as much as £100 cashback by switching gas and electricity to a particular provider. Cashback is also available for new credits cards and current accounts, as well as TV and Internet bundles.
Notes to editors
Instead of going directly to a retailers website, visit a cashback site such as Quidco.com and look for the retailer there. For each merchant, all of the cashback offers and voucher codes available are displayed and by selecting one, you are then taken to the retailers website to shop as normal.
Because the merchant sees that you have bought something after clicking through from a cashback site, it pays them a commission which they pass on to you as cashback. Users can also benefit from instant discounts using voucher codes and printable vouchers for use in stores.
Quidco.com is the easy way for people to save money on every purchase. It pays cashback when people click through and make a purchase at any of the 4,000 retailers listed on its website, by paying the commission it gets from the retailer, directly into the shoppers bank account. It also lists voucher codes, which give an instant online discount, restaurant vouchers and printable vouchers, which give a discount in-store.
Quidco.com was founded in 2005 with a mission to help people save money and is the UKs leading cashback and voucher website. The site is free to join and currently has more than 1.5 million members who will save a total of £50m in the next year.
