Boom25 - If you're not in, you won't win!

The Boom25 slogan reminds me a bit of the National Lottery slogan - you've got to be in it to win it, but in my opinion Boom25 is a far better bet. I mean, what are the chances of you winning the National Lottery? Pretty slim and you also have to pay in the first place to be involved. Not the case with Boom25. Oh no, this is the cashback site where you have a 1 in 25 chance to win your full purchase price back and you don't have to spend anything with Boom25 to sign up or be eligible for that win. All you are paying out is the cost of the items you've ordered online, but seeing as you were ordering that anyway it's all good.

Have a peek at the tutorial below and Boom25 will explain more themselves -


I've never heard of anything like Boom25 before, it certainly is an unusual concept but I do love the thrill of being able to get fully refunded for my purchase rather than just receiving a few pennies back as a percentage of the total sale, like traditional cashback sites give. I also like the fact that even if I'm not the lucky 25th customer with an eligible purchase, I'll get a bonus to go in my pot, ready to be paid out when I do have a win.

There always appears to be deals as well, take a look below and you'll see that for a limited time you have a 1 in 8 chance of a win as a new customer of Tesco, a 1 in 17 chance with the Works and a 1 in 10 chance with Groupon. These are superb odds.

The Tesco one really interested me as I don't currently shop with them but as I spent around £100 a week on my food shopping, I am going to swap over and have a try, just imagine what a difference it could make in a month, a whole £100 given back to me. You do have to remember though that things can take a while with cashback sites. Boom25 have to wait to receive confirmation from the retailer that an eligible sale was made (ie, it tracked, there have not not been any refunds and no coupons/ discount codes were used) and only then can you be counted in the line of shoppers to see if you're the lucky eighth one!

You don't have to worry that is is only obscure retailers available via Boom 25, oh no there are currently 870 online shops available and most all the big ones I searched for were there, I think the only exception I found was Sainsburys but then I've never received cashback from there via any site I've tried.

I've been having a good search of the web and checking Boom25 out and there are some seriously committed people using the site. In fact they have a community of over 200,000 and between those people there has been winnings (pay-out) of over £590,000, with the single biggest pay-out being £4,225. I'm pretty impressed with that.

I'm excited to say that I did my first Boom and I'm really hoping for beginners luck as it would be fab to win back my £42.99 that I spent with eBay - we will see! I spent the money on 19th September and by 21st September, I had my email (see image below) so say it had tracked, so now I wait for the next email to tell me if I'm a winner or if I get a bonus instead.

Also, take a look on the Facebook Group - Boom 25, Special bargains for UK Boomers if you fancy finding some great deals and getting involved. There are loads of knowledgeable people on there to advise you when a purchase will track, which retailers are most reliable and so forth. Or check out the reviews on Trustpilot left by 751 users and you'll see they have an excellent rating, and some very happy customers who've won a tidy sum back.

What do you think?  Will you be giving Boom25 a go?
