Did you Know There is lots of Free Money you can get Today?
To be clear, this site is aimed at Australians, so the spelling and some words will be different (I know we have people from everywhere reading though).
Most of what is shared here can be done by anyone.
How to Find Free or Bonus Money
Free money sounds great, right? How much money do you think is out there, with your name on it and you don’t know or forgot?
What about signup bonuses and other freebies?
Here are some plus ways to find other money. Note, I do use affiliate links in my posts for products and services I use. You can read my full disclosure here.
Bank Bonuses $128
Banks often offer bonuses for joining. They can vary from time to time so this post is often updated to reflect that.
$100 Free with ING
Here’s what you need to do:
- Open an everyday account and put the promo code CNW116 in the promo box (you must use the code to get the $100 bonus) and complete all the steps below in the first month.
- Deposit $1,000 into the account such as your income or Centrelink payments
- Make 5 settled transactions
- Open a Savings Maximiser (current interest rate is 5.5%)
- Make a deposit into the Savings Maximiser
Then you get your $100 the following month when the promotion is running. Promotion periods vary. The current promotion runs until October 31, 2023.
Get $20 from ubank
I’ve used ubank for 2 years now and they’ve been great. It’s fee-free banking and online only.
Use the code S7VL6WF when you join free here to get your $20 after you use your card for the third time.
Get $8 from Up Bank
Another online only bank but get your $8 as soon as you sign up. I’ve been using them for 3 years now. Get your $8 for joining in minutes.
Free Money and Vouchers
Every state has free vouchers, money and discounts for different circumstances.
I wrote a huge post with all the free money and vouchers available, state by state and ones available nationwide.
Check The State Revenue Office
You can check on the MoneySmart website here, however, I found checking each state individually brought up payments owed to myself, friends and family that were not mentioned in the MoneySmart search.
There are links to other options on the MoneySmart site.
It is free to search, then you fill in some forms, provide the paperwork and get paid. I had over $200 there, another friend $89, other friends have had a few thousand.
I’d love to hear if and how much you get from it.
Check Superannuation (Retirement Funds)
If you have worked a few jobs you might have a few superannuation (retirement) accounts. Search and consolidate them all into one.
This way, you will earn more interest and the money won’t be eaten away by fees in multiple accounts.
Check your balance from online surveys and loyalty programs then cash them in.
Are you a member of FlyBuys, Everyday Rewards or any other loyalty programs?
Check them all, cash in your points for gift cards if you want to.
If you don’t want to, make a note of them all so you know how much you have and from where in case you need it later.
Do you have any gift cards or gift certificates laying around, waiting to be used? Book them in to be used or sell them.
With the loyalty programs, gift cards and cashing everything in, I found $430.57 worth.
Cash Back Programs
Even Woolworths offers cash back through these sites. You can find out more here.
When I moved and connected my internet I got $75 back through Cash Rewards.
Every time I’ve shopped online since I joined I have received between $1 and $80 back.
Search For Cash
