Okay, perhaps the title is a bit clickbaity but I have been effectively getting free makeup from Debenhams, so I wanted to tell you how I’ve been ‘earning’ these Debenhams vouchers just through online shopping. It’s easy peasy and it’s something I’ve spoken about on the blog before, however that was when I was just getting cash payments. I’ve since realised that you can make a little bit extra by getting Debenhams vouchers..

Getting Debenhams vouchers through Quidco

I’ve been a member of Quidco for years, my dad told me to sign up around ten years ago and I’ve been using it religiously ever since. Quidco is a cash back site, which allows you to earn cash back from your normal online purchases which is really handy if you’re like me and do the majority of your shopping online. I’ve found that it’s worth going through Quidco even if you’re making a small purchase as it all adds up and before you know it, you have a hefty amount waiting to be withdrawn. All together, I’ve managed to earn myself an extra £410 and that’s mostly been over the past three or four years, which is amazing!

No matter what I buy online, I always go through Quidco first to see if I can make some money back from it. It only takes a few seconds and means that I can add a few more pennies to the pot.

As you can see from the above, there are various different cash back rates – I find that New Look offer one of the best at 5% (but they often go up to 10%) and Booking.com offer 4%, which, with the cost of hotel rooms can mean you get quite a lot of cash back. The cash back doesn’t always track and confirm straight away, sometimes you have to wait a couple of months but it’s worth it when you check your account one day and see that you have £20 waiting to be withdrawn.

As I mentioned before, I used to just withdraw this straight into my bank account or into my Paypal account which only take a 2-3 days to transfer, however Quidco have recently added a few more withdrawal options to the site.

As you can see, if you choose to withdraw as a Debenhams voucher, Quidco will top it up by an extra 15%! They also have these offers on Costa, Halfords, Pizza Express, Arcadia, Amazon and many more retailers with various bonus amounts. I’ve had a couple of withdrawals in the form of Debenhams vouchers now and they simply email them over to you and you can either print the voucher off to use instore, or you can use the code online.

By using these Debenhams vouchers I’ve managed to get my hands on a couple of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquids, one of the extremely pretty Urban Decay Vice Lip Toppers and I now have my eye on the Kat Von D Alchemist palette. When you use these vouchers, make sure you present your Beauty Card as well so you can gain points – I’ve now got £5 worth of points on my card after all of my recent purchases!

I highly recommend you sign up to Quidco, even if you don’t want to go for the Debenhams vouchers, there’s plenty of other retailers and you can also withdraw the cash.

    I do a similar thing with Topcashback, last time I got a £50 voucher for love to shop!! 🙂 I’m going to look into signing up for Quidco too!! xx

    I have to admit I’ve not tried Quidco – I use TopCashBack but I’m guessing it is probably worth signing up to them both as they may cover different websites.

    How brilliant, I haven’t tried it before but have heard about cash back sites and never really understood them, it sounds really straightforward though, thank you for sharing.

    It sounds like this works like eBates right? I think however Quidco is just for the UK hence the name. Nevertheless thank you sharing this money saving tool. I return home to England yearly so I will try and remember to use this whilst I’m there.

    I love the idea of this! Especially as quidco top it up by choosing this form!

  6. August 14, 2017 / 8:06 pm

    Ooh, I love Quidco but I haven’t used it for a while, I didn’t realise they have all these new options! Thanks for the tip 🙂

  7. August 14, 2017 / 9:25 pm

    This is pretty cool. I’ve never heard of Quidco before. I will have to sign up and get some cash back!

  8. August 14, 2017 / 10:58 pm

    Oh that’s fab! I’ve heard of Quidco but I didn’t really know what it was! I will definitely be signing up!

    I need to start using a cashback service as I do buy quite a lot online but never reap the benefits x

    Awesome – I am going to have to try this. Makeup is so expensive nowadays, ant saving is a good thing.

  11. August 15, 2017 / 10:53 am

    I know the wife uses sites like these as she shops online more than I do, but it is a great idea!

  12. August 15, 2017 / 11:53 am

    I need to use this site! I normally forget to use a cashback site until after I’ve bought something x

  13. August 15, 2017 / 1:04 pm

    Ooo this sounds like a great idea, I think I definitely need to look into joining.

  14. August 15, 2017 / 1:14 pm

    I love cashback sites. I use SwagBucks and it really helped me in financing my blog. Never tried Quidco but will look into it soon.

  15. August 15, 2017 / 2:13 pm

    I have never tried quidco before but it defiantly sounds worth a try as I just love makeup

  16. August 15, 2017 / 2:29 pm

    I haven’t tried Quidco before or Topcashback although it sounds great that you can get freebies from using them.

  17. August 15, 2017 / 4:35 pm

    quidco is something i’ve never tried before i tend to forget about the deals i’m nightmare for looking about and work with impulse buying which costs me three times more most times

  18. August 16, 2017 / 1:53 pm

    With the amount of online shopping I do it would definitely be worth it for me!

    I have never tried any of these and I really should with the amount that I Shop lol thanks for the intro 🙂

  20. August 16, 2017 / 10:31 pm

    I hadn’t heard of Quidco until your post and I am off now to sign up! I spend so much money that I can hopefully get a little back as it all helps! x

    This post really caught my attention because I’ve heard so much about Quidco but in all honesty, I thought it sounded too good to be true. Definitely going to sign up.

    I use Quidco but I’ve only earnt about £15 in the past couple of years but I’ve been booking all my America stuff through them so I’ll hopefully get quite a lot more! I didn’t know you could get vouchers! xo

    This sounds exactly like what I do with Topcashback and Avios points! I managed to collect enough to book myself a “free” hotel for four nights in Budapest! x
