And now for the more in-depth answer...
In today's world we're all looking for the best bargain and the cheapest deals around and one of the easiest ways of doing this is by simply using a website that pays you to shop. That probably sounds crazy to you but it's true! We at FatCheese.ie will pay you to shop online.
You can save hundreds of euros every year on purchases you make online by using FatCheese.ie to link through to your favourite retailers. FatCheese has links to over 850 retailers, insurers and travel sites. By linking through to the store through the FatCheese.ie website you will then receive cash back into your account for doing so... hence the term "cashback". It makes sense... why go straight to the store's website when you can save money by using FatCheese instead?
This may all sound a little too good to be true but this is one of those times where it really does work and can be seen as a shopper's bonus. You could earn €50 from Vodafone by taking out a phone contract or 7% from ASOS from the total shopping basket value. Stores like Apple Store pay FatCheese a commission for every sale we drive through to their site and instead of keeping all the commission for ourselves we pass the full 100% commission (ie. everything we earn for the sale) back to you.
The cashback process is really very simple. The first step is to make sure you've registered for free to FatCheese.ie and are logged in to your account. We use special links to direct you to your desired retailer. By clicking and following these links and carrying out your purchases the retailer knows to credit FatCheese.ie with any commission. This is all you need to do on FatCheese, use our link to click through to the retailer's website and then make your purchase as you normally would.
Once you have completed your purchase, it should show up on your FatCheese account statement within a few hours*. The term used for this is 'tracked'. From here the transaction has been registered by FatCheese, but we are yet to receive the money (commission) for your purchase. Once the retailer/store pays us for your purchase then we will "award" you with the amount owed to you. The whole payment process can be as little as two weeks but can take up to three months before you receive your money with some retailers, but come on it's worth the wait as it's a bonus for something you would have done anyway! The reason why this process can take this long is to give enough time for the order to be paid and for any return times to lapse. Now for the best part, once your transaction moves to the status of "Awarded" you will be able to withdraw your cash into your bank account or even your PayPal account!
*The transaction tracking time differs for all retailers but you can locate the average tracking time in the statistics box found on each retailer page.
That's crazy talk! But yes, we have plenty of ways for you to make money online without having to spend any cash and these are our Free Cashback offers. This section will help you make some extra bit of cash online without having to spend a cent.
Some of these offers allow you to earn money by taking up free trials that are available, you're merely getting paid to test out a product. Here's an example of this: you get €10 for taking up a two week free trial with ScreenClick.com. Hard to believe but yes it really is that simple. Take a look at our offers to see what other free trials there are to take advantage of.
FatCheese also allows you to earn cashback just by registering to a certain site or for completing a survey. With MySurvey, for example, we'll pay you €4 just for registering to their panel for free - €4 for two minutes work!
The final way of making some money without having to spend anything is by telling all your friends about FatCheese. Refer your friends and family and for every two of your friends you bring on board who go on to earn their first euro cashback (and you've now seen how easy that can be), we'll give you a €2 bonus!
It's possible to earn cashback and save on everything, including food, clothes, insurance, entertainment, holidays... you could save yourself hundreds every year!
