Have you ever been so engrossed in online shopping to the point where you have about ten tabs open, seven baskets full and a variety of voucher codes ready to go? Well, this one might be for you. I’ve only recently cottoned on to the whole ‘cashback’ trend that is going round at the moment, where you can genuinely get money back on the normal stuff you’re buying anyway, but there’s one website a little different that’s recently caught my eye and it’s a bit of a game changer I have to say.
Boom25 is a site where you pick and choose what external sites you want to shop from, and they say you have a 1 in 25 chance of getting the whole lot for free. Sounds good right? I’ve been trying it out and I have to admit there is some pretty good deals on there. Places like Groupon actually has a 1 in 12 chance win, and places like First Choice Holidays having a 1 in 15 chance, so what’s not to like.
They’ve produced a little video tutorial here to make it easier to understand:
I really like the concept of Boom25, and I can see why it’s been voted as one of Forbes’ most promising start-ups for 2018, as it’s definitely something a lot different to the others and I don’t think there’s anything else about that do the same thing in the same way. After reading the quote on their website from the co-founder, I can really see that they want to excite the online shopping world;
“We want to put the thrill back into online shopping by giving people the opportunity to win cashback on purchases made online.Traditional cashback sites in the UK are boring, we want to change it!”
It was the Tesco one for me though. I’m currently shopping there weekly and I have been for a while, even during the Uni days about 8 years ago, but it’s only until recently i’ve opted in for a Clubcard, so just imagine how much money I could’ve saved over the years there. Anyway, it turns out thanks to Boom25 that if I shop through the website I have a 1 in 15 chance of winning, so surely I would’ve won at some point down the line. I spend around £40 a week there and it’s a large part of my monthly budget in total, so getting the whole thing back one week would’ve made a real difference to my wellbeing.
Give it a go and let me know in the comments below how you found it, I highly recommend it though!
