Advantages huge range of offers and rewards
Disadvantages slow tracking time to receive points
iPoints is another cash back website, similar to Quidco, however, as the title may give away, instead of directly dealing in cash this site deals in iPoints. These are virtual credits that you acquire from shopping on the internet and signing up for offers, which can be redeemed for items off their website. To put these points into perspective you can buy a brand new Playstation 3 for 60,000 points whereas most DVD's cost around 1,000 points. Unless you are going for one of the huge expensive items, where the points count for more, roughly 100 points is the value of a pound. But the range of items you can purchase is very extensive so pretty much anything you ask for can be found.iPoints is a free service to use and couldn't be simpler to sign up to. Take ten minutes to sign up to a 5 page form and you're already on your way to earning iPoints. From filling in some basic details such as an email address, name, date of birth and geographical location, you will be given 200 iPoints for your troubles. Technically you could spend these iPoints on something already, although I would highly recommend you save them up until you can afford a better prize.
Once you are inside and signed up to iPoints it works in a very similar way to Quidco, although the offers here are already split up for you into two pages, one titled collect iPoints and the other free iPoints. The first of these sections, allows you to collect iPoints in a cash back scheme. This means that when you make purchases from websites such as Amazon, Play.com and Argos you will receive a number of points back for every pound you spend. For example from Amazon you get 10 points back for every point spent.If you are interested in using iPoints for their cash back offers then I would recommend keeping an eye on the newsletter that they post out weekly to your email address. Here it is filled with offers of extra points and double rewards when buying from certain shops. If you keep an eye on these and wait until the optimum moment, you will find that you can receive an awful lot of extra points you wouldn't have expected from what is likely to have been something you would have bought anyway.
The other type of offers they have are the free points section. This is a section filled with no spend offers. These are offers that you can sign up to without having to spend a penny. Usually these are surveys, competitions and requesting things such as brochures. According to the iPoints website if you sign up to all of these no spend offers you can earn around 8000 iPoints. This is without spending a single penny, and this equates to receiving a £30 voucher to many department stores, or a case filled with 6 bottles of wine. Not bad for a few hours work and no cash input whatsoever. However I would suggest signing up for a new e-mail address if you are going to sign up for these offers, as it is very likely you will be rewarded with a lot of Spam as well as a lot of free items.Just like on the Quidco website, there are also gambling offers where great profits can be made.
