How you can help support your favourite businesses

Business

We’re currently living through a future history class and we know that a lot of our members are anxious and worried right now which is why we’ve created handy guides to explain how cashback can help you. But anxiety isn’t just felt by our members, it’s affecting a lot of our partnering brands and businesses of all shapes and sizes too.

These are very uncertain times but there are small things that we can all still do to help our economy. We’ve put together some tips on how you can help support your favourite businesses safely and responsibly whether that be your local cafe or your dearest department store.

Buy a gift card to spend later

Many local and smaller businesses are worried about how they’ll weather the storm.

One easy way to continue to support them is to head over to their site or our TopGiftCards page and buy a gift card. If they don’t appear to offer this as an option, then drop them a message on social media and see if this is something they would be open to.

They’ll appreciate the cash and you’ll have something to look forward to when everything is back to normal.

Pay for future appointments

Beauty and hair appointments are another thing we’ve inevitably taken for granted in the past. Rather than trying your luck as Edward Scissorhands, why not contact your hairdresser or nail technician and ask them if they’re accepting payment for future treatments.

Many of these people are self-employed and will appreciate the offer and they may already be offering this service. A few of our TopCashback staff have already paid to get their hair done when they’re able to.

Order from your local takeaway, pub or cafe

Did you know that a lot of local food businesses have joined takeaway providers like Just Eat or Deliveroo? That means you can still get your favourite foods from your local takeaway or cafe safely.

NHS staff can also get 25% off their orders at Just Eat, so make sure you check that out if you are one of the incredible NHS workers.

Leave a review

You may not be able to support your favourite businesses financially but a positive review can go a long way too.

With many businesses having to close their doors, some positive words from you through social media or TrustPilot could give businesses a much needed morale boost in the short term, and will also put them in good stead when they are able to reopen to the public and trade again.

Hey

I am sorry to hear this. We do get cashback to members as qucikly as possible. To do this we would need to be seen as eligible and receive the funds.

If you could please drop a support ticket to our team they can take a closer look and get this resolved for you.

Best wishes
