Honey is an extension you add to your internet browser which pops up when you can save money. It will search for discount codes, cash back options and anything else to make your purchase cheaper for you. Over the years, this has been the best one I have used. Sign up free here.

Trailing commissions

Any services you get such as a bank loan, mortgage, health insurance etc charge commissions. There are services you can use to claim this back from the moment you sign up with them. If you have a few services this can result in thousands over a year or two. I have reached out to a few but haven’t heard back and since I haven’t personally used them, I don’t have specific ones to recommend.

Other Discounts
Aside from the above sites searching for coupon codes, you can also join VIP or loyalty clubs to get rewarded (we listed the Australian ones we know of here), check out these 10 ways to get discounts or coupons in Australia or sign up for all the birthday freebies at your favourite cafes and stores.

  1. I have also used RewardsCentral for cash back/gift cards. I usually use for gift cards, since the money can take 8 weeks to be in the account. They also offer surveys and other things as well. I often look here if Cashrewards or Flybuys don’t have the stores listed. 🙂

    • Interesting, as everyone else I know found RC to be one of the worst for cashback etc. I stopped using it a few years ago. Has it improved?

      • I can’t recall how long it took me to redeem, but I haven’t been doing much as fat as surveys are concerned lately. I have redeemed a fair few times over the past few years though.
