Rebtel, the company i mentioned in a previous post is now doing a promotion. Double your money. When you register and buy a $10 credit, you'll get double that amount. Since the rate for calling mobile in Malaysia is £0.024 using rebtel, that theoretically comes to £0.012 per minute when you get the 'double your money' bonus.


One drawback though is the fact that we are living in the UK, we can't escape the 17.5% tax. They will charge the 17.5% tax when you pay using paypal. Another drawback using rebtel is you need to pre-assigned the number you want to call in Malaysia. You need to go online in order to do that. So if you're in the middle of nowhere and you want to reach someone in Malaysia, you need to make sure his/her number is already in your contact list. You can further make some more saving by using Quidco, there's a £7.50 cashback for this. I've just bought my credit using Quidco, but still waiting for the cashback to show up in my earnings. If i got the £7.50 back, that practically means i'm just spending (£0.025) for a $20 credit.

Hurry, the deadline for this offer is 1 November 2008. And it won't cost you anything but your time if you get into the 10 minutes trial. Happy Calling.

Ebay treat : £5 Loyalty Coupon

Every once in a while ebay sent out loyalty voucher to their valued customer. I just received mine a few days ago. It's a £5 voucher on postage when spenting more than £10 in total. Over the years, i've received more than 5 vouchers from ebay with total value of more than £30. One thing to note is that these voucher are tied to your ebay and paypal account. So even if you manage to extract my voucher code from the image below, you wont be able to use it with your account. My only advise is to start shopping while saving (with Quidco) and wait for your ebay voucher in your post box.

Make Money the easy way : CashBack Company

Making money online has to be one of the most popular topic of the 20th century. Every now and again you heard about people making millions off their blog or website. Advertisement has been the most common source of income for many bloggers, but how many time have people click a link and buy from your website. I've been maintaining a website for years now and never have anyone click and buy through my link. The most i get is from google adsense, because it's pay per click. All i can say is, it's not my thing. I won't be making my next million dollars through advertising on my website. Might as well save some money while you shop. As they said, a penny saved is a penny earn. Quidco and TopCashBack are few of many cashback company in the UK. What i like about these two company is that they pay 100% cashback.

Let me explain how internet advertisement works. Let say you have a website and you want to use your website to advertise other people products for a commision. What you do is you register with advertisement company like,, Then you apply to be promoter of a product.When you are approved, you can put their banner on your webpage. You will earn a percentage of their profit when somebody click and buy through your link. It's a time consuming task to apply, get approved and the worst is to get people to click and buy from your website. Furthermore, you can't use your own link to buy something yourself and earn commision. It's not ethical.

However, now with Quidco and TopCashBack, you can earn money just by using their link. Anybody now can earn money online, no website required. Just register and buy through them, and you'll get 100% of the commision they received from the advertisement company. Yes, 100% percent. The only catch with Quidco is that you have to pay admin fee of 5 quid per annum. I'd say that's not a bad deal considering some cashback company is taking a few percent of your earning on each transaction. This is why Quidco and TopCashBack are so popular.

I've been using quidco for all my Ebay stuff, free sim card, changing my electric and gas supplier , and even for flight tickets. And when my mobile contract is finish, i'll cancel them and buy a new contract using quidco link. My last contract through Dialaphone saves me 60 quid. And there are now mobile phone provider giving up to 150 cashback.

For those new to quidco, i suggest you start with the free sims, just to pay off the 5 pound admin fee. If your broadband contract is due to finish, just cancel it and get a new contract through quidco. There are a few company offering over 100 pound to sign up with them. When you are going on holiday, use quidco for your hotels and flight. People have been saving thousands of pound using quidco.

Happy Quidcoing.......
