Airtime Rewards app

Airtime Rewards – Earn passive cashback via app (plus promo code)

Fancy earning cashback with no effort needed? I’ve earned £50 just from having Airtime Rewards installed on my phone. Here’s how it works:

Link your cards to this one app, and every time you spend money in one of its retailers – you get cashback. Doesn’t matter how much you spend, and you don’t need to click any buttons before you buy.

That means you’ll get between 1-10% back every time you spend at Boots, Waitrose, Primark, Debenhams, Pizza Express, Papa John’s, Wilko and many more.

The cashback you earn can’t be withdrawn as cash, but instead it’s linked to your phone contract/pay as you go sim. 

Once you’ve banked enough cash to withdraw (usually £5 or £10), you can redeem it, and it’ll come off your bill for the month, or be added to your credit.

The app is called Airtime Rewards, and it’s one of my favourites. Here’s an overview of to get started on it:

Download Airtime Rewards and register

Airtime Rewards is available on iOS and Andriod. Once downloaded, fill out a few details to create your account. If you wanted a bonus, you can get 50p for free for using my promo code TEMMNEV4 (and you’ll also get a £1 bonus if you spend in the first 7 days).

Link your cards & start shopping

Any cards that you would shop with, make sure to add to your account. Airtime Rewards can be linked to Visa and Mastercards (but not AMEX), and you can add as many cards as you like.

Once they are linked, it will track all of your spending on those cards, and if you shop at a retailer on Airtime Rewards, you will get cashback. The rate of cashback varies per retailer, but the average is around 4-5%.

There is no maximum amount of cashback you can earn on an order too, so spending £500 at Argos for example will net you £25 cashback (as you get 5% back).

There is usually around 35 days from the time you shop until the time the cashback is payable, so it’s not going to be a quick way to make some money – but it should passively work when you’re not even thinking about it.

Once you have hit the minimum threshold (which varies by network provider), you can redeem your money under the ‘rewards’ tab in the app.

How to get £1.50 free with an Airtime Rewards promo code

For signing up and entering an Airtime Rewards promo code, you get 50p for free, and then an extra £1 bonus if you spend within the first 7 days of having the app.

You can enter my code which is TEMMNEV4 to get your free bonus if you don’t have one.

As said above, you need to spend from one of its retailers in the first 7 days to get the extra £1 bonus… but there is no minimum spend on this to unlock it.

This means, to unlock the extra £1 (even if you weren’t going to spend), you can pop into Boots and get a chocolate bar for 50p, or get a vegetable from Waitrose for a couple of pence… and you’ll still get the bonus issued to you. A great way to earn a little extra cash!

Stack cashback

The thing that I love about this app, is that you can stack it with other cashback. If you’re signed up to either TopCashback or Quidco, and a retailer is on Airtime Rewards as well, you use both.

(If you want to know more about TopCashback – see my TopCashback Guide).

To stack the cashback – click through the cashback website online and pay on one of your linked cards. This will mean you can get double the cashback from 2 different places. 

Here is some of the stacking you can do right now:

  • Topman – up to 11.6% cashback (6.6% on TopCashback, 5% on Airtime Rewards)
  • Debenhams – 9% cashback (5% on TopCashback, 4% on Airtime Rewards)
  • Boots – 8.3% cashback (3.3% on TopCashback, 5% on Airtime Rewards)
  • Halfords – 10.4% cashback (5.4% on TopCashback, 5% on Airtime Rewards)

That’s a lowdown for you on how Airtime Rewards works (and how to use it to your advantage). I hope you end up saving some money with it. 

Since signing up my mother and my partner, we have accumulated £40 between us all in a short time – which we wouldn’t have got otherwise.

If you want some more ways to make some extra cash, you can earn passive vouchers with Gener8 Ads.

Amazon Prime Day 2020

Amazon Prime Day 2020 – What do we know?

Whether you’re an Amazon fan or not, there’s no denying that there are good deals to be had. But Amazon Prime Day 2020 will be a good place to look this year in the UK. So when is it, and what’s coming? Here’s what we know so far…

For me, this is like Christmas. There are deals everywhere on one of my favourite websites. Not all of them are good deals of course, but if there’s something you need, this might be a good time. Here are the full details:

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day started in 2015, so it’s a fairly recent phenomenon, but yet it’s a day that money savers wait for every year. It’s said that over 175 million items were sold last year. With all of those numbers, it’s worth knowing about!

Amazon Prime Day 2020 will actually be a 48 hour event, which will consist of deals on all of the usual Amazon products (including the Echo, Kindle, Fire TV Stick and more). 

Alongside this, you’ll also find ‘lightening deals’ happening every 15 minutes. This is usually random products at a discounted price – but only for a short time.

 Usually the lightening deals are nothing to shout about, but the Amazon branded products are usually the cheapest they’ve found all year on Amazon Prime Day.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2020?

In the past, the 48 hours of Amazon Prime Day has been held through a Monday/Tuesday. This is a slightly odd few days to choose on Amazon’s part – but maybe they want to lighten up people’s start to the week!

In all of the past years of Prime Day, it is held in the month of July. So if we’re looking for a Monday/Tuesday in the month of July, that limits us down to 4 potential dates already.

From doing a bit of sleuthing (by doing a search of the web… very high tech), it seems that rumours are leading to Amazon Prime Day 2020 starting on Monday 13th July. This will continue through to the end of Tuesday 14th.

There will be plenty of promotion in the lead up to the big day, so if you forget this date now, you’ll see the advertisements and banners everywhere to remind you.

I’ll also be updating the blog here with any new information when it becomes available. So if you’re new and don’t want to miss out, please do subscribe for future updates and deals.

What deals can we expect in 2020?

Last year did not disappoint in terms of deals. I saw an Amazon Echo Dot for just £22 (the cheapest we’d seen up until that point). Also the Echo Show 5, which was recently released, also saw a price drop of £20.

In terms of 2020, all of the usual suspects will see a discount, including the Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot, Kindle and Fire tablets.

There are also new items such as the Echo Show 8 and the All New Fire TV Cube, which have not seen any massive price drops in price since release. It’s likely that Amazon Prime Day will be one of the first chances to get a good deal on them.

How to get the Prime Day deals

As per the name, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to get the deals. Don’t worry if you aren’t subscribed, because you can sign up the day before or day of the event and still get the deals. 

Never signed up before? You can sign up for a free trial (and sometimes you can get free trials if you have signed up too).

If you can’t get a free trial, then it might be worth waiting until the day to see how much the items are reduced by. 

If there was a specific Amazon product that you were looking to get during the Amazon Prime Day event, you can wait to see what the price is, and if the discount is more than £7.99 (the cost of 1 month Prime membership), then it’s worth getting. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

So that’s the lowdown of Amazon Prime Day 2020. I’m excited to see what happens, and what products will be reduced too. There are tons of free trials to claim on Amazon too, so have a look to see if you’ve claimed them all.

Are you looking forward to Prime Day? I’d love to know in the comments, on Twitter @Jordon_Cox or on Facebook.

buyagift prezzo deal

Prezzo deal – 3 course meal + wine for £11.70 each (again and again)

Main courses on their own at restaurants are usually £10+, but what if I said you could get a whole 3 course meal (and a bit of tipple) for just £11.70 each. And that you can get this again… and again… and again?

This deal is for popular Italian restaurant chain Prezzo which can be found at high streets around the country. And yes, you can get this at nearly all times of year. It takes a little bit of effort and planning each time, but the money you save will be worth it.

To simplify the deal, I’ve broken it down into several steps to walk you through it.

Buyagift deal for £29.99

On Buyagift’s website, you can get a gift package or a voucher that entitles you to a 3 course meal + wine for two people, at the price of £29.99.

You can choose to get this in a gift box sent to your house, or an e-voucher sent to your email address (which is free).

I know Buyagift is a gifting website for other people, but there is nothing to stop you buying things for yourself, so that’s exactly what you’ll do here!


Buyagift prezzo deal

The deal has a set menu of items that you have to choose between (which you can view here), but there are still a decent list of items to choose from for starter, main and desert. You can also swap out your wine for any soft drink if you are driving.

The Buyagift deal makes at £15 each already (which is still a saving), but you can still do better…

Find a Buyagift code

There is always a Buyagift code floating around somewhere. You can often find codes on sites such as VoucherCodesMyVouchercodes and VoucherCloud – all having their own exclusive offers at different points throughout the year.

These usually range between 10-25% off, which will get you between £3 to £7.50 off of your total.

At the moment, the best code that I could find was on VoucherCloud which could get you 22% off your basket total. Entering the code VCLR7LXX2Y86 at checkout gets you your Prezzo package for £23.40 (or £11.70 each).

The beauty of this, is that you can keep buying it. Whenever you want to eat at a Prezzo, just go through the same steps. Look for a code, buy the gift and book a table. 

Your price might vary throughout the year, but you’ll still get a 3 course meal for two for a max of £13.50 each  (which is still pretty good).

Final terms to note

It’s worth mentioning, that once you have purchases and have an email sent, you’ll need to go on to the Buyagift website and enter your voucher number to be able to get your deal.

You’ll need to book a table through Buyagift’s website – so you’ll need to know when you want to go (and what time). But once that’s sorted, you wont have to pay when you get there, as it’s already all sorted.

Buying the cheapest items from this set menu (garlic bread, chicken caesar salad, ice cream and wine) costs £21.50 normally – meaning that already a great saving.

Picking the most expensive items on the set menu, add up to £30.90, which will mean you’re saving £19.20 (EACH) on your meal. That is a deal.

I hope this helps you out. And remember, you can do this whenever you fancy a Prezzo… all it needs is a little planning. If this is too much hassle, you can get a ‘free’ coffee or tea at Waitrose which is easier to do!

Will you be getting yourself a Prezzo 3 course meal? I’d love to know in the comments below, on Twitter @Jordon_Cox, or on Facebook.
