bye guys some of you that watch my hair transplant series of videos know that I'm always talking about Amazon how I get free money to spend on Amazon and some of you have been asking if I'll go into a bit more detail on things like that and saving money in general these days none of us are rich well most of us on anyway so we go to try and save money where we can okay so the first thing I talk about is this website called money-saving expert com run by Martin Lewis who's on TV quite a lot these days but yeah it's a great website for saving money yeah there's lots lots of ways you can save a bit of money things like when you're flying you know I join the frequent flyer clubs even if you don't fly that often is still worth joining them you might not ever save enough points to get a free fly but you know they sometimes do things like if a flights overbooked and they're offering to pick you up you know hotel if you fly the next day and then they might upgrade you to business class they're far more likely to give that's someone who's in their frequent flyer club than someone that's not also things like moving seats around they're far more likely if you've got a few points on a card on an account rather than someone who's just not got any points at all another thing I use is Priority Pass if you fly more than a couple of times a year what you do is I signed up using Groupon you I think it was six pounds on Groupon they then give you like a voucher code to use on Priority Pass it allows you to stay in airport lounges before you fly so you get free food free alcohol comfier seized power to charge up your phone and you laptop and everything and it's quieter than normal passenger lounges so yeah like I said I bought a six pound voucher off of Groupon they then you then once you get the voucher code go to priority pass I think it was 68 pounds to sign up and I think my Groupon they actually gave me 30 percent off or 40 percent or something like that so then once you sign up used to be 15 pounds of time but now it's gone up to 20 pounds of time so every time you go to a lounge at one of these airports you just pay it's linked to your credit card so you don't even take cash you just show them the card sign for it and then you enter the lounge and yeah you get free alcohol free food non-alcoholic drinks as well like I said it's it's quite nice if you fly more than a few times a year to use that there are other places like lounge buddy which is a website where you can just book them but they came across quite a bit if you just turn up and you just play on the day you pay quite a lot more than that people say why do I always use Amazon they've got a great returns policy if you don't like something I get free cash to spend basically on Allison we're doing lots of things there's a few websites are used by the online questionnaires so there's one called valued opinions so it's valued opinions dot k dot uk' so you basically join this and then they will send you by email questionnaires which you answer when you get to a certain amount of cash you can then exchange it for a voucher and then they also there's it's also si which is another one opinion there's quite a few out there if you're interested in doing questionnaires you have to do them sort of fairly regularly to get the points to get the Amazon vouchers but it's well worth it because you soon build up credit in your Amazon account so that whenever you need to by saying you just use the cash that some of its top cashback this is website I really like using so when you by something say through Booker's if you're booking a holiday or if you're looking something like a hotel or if just a fly or anything basically there's eBay there's tons so what I'll do is I'll show you how to use it and what it does basically instead of going straight to eBay you go buy a top cashback there's also another site called Quinta Co which I don't use quite as much we used to talk cash back nice and so on so you going to top cashback you type in after you've logged in say eBay then takes you to eBay and when you've done your order on eBay you sign out and then top cashback will say it's tracked your purchase so basically you're getting cash back because they're referring you to eBay rather than going straight to eBay so I use this a hell of a lot there's tons of different online suppliers that you can go to via top cashback so it's top top cache Banco de que so you can see overall I've been pay six hundred and sixty pounds and six hundred and sixty two pounds total because I've got to pound twenty three outstanding so what you do is say you want to search for a store so you want to buy something on eBay swipe it up there after you've logged in and then we can see the eBay it's offering one point zero one percent cash back doesn't sound like a lot but if you buy stuff all the time on eBay it's certainly worth it builds up in the end the other thing I like about top cashback is when you get paid you can either just have normal cash if you get paid by something like Amazon they give you like an extra couple of percent on top so you get a little bit more money and they'll just send it as a voucher code so basically you choose the website you want and then you go to cash back and this will there tell you about eBay and then you go to get cash back now and all it does is it opens another website the eBay website or whatever site you've gone to you do your normal shopping on eBay then when you've finished you'll close it down and it says we've recorded your visits this case I've not bought anything so it won't sort of give you any cash back but normally if you bought something you'll show up in I think it's up to seven days you have to give it but normally it's quicker than that and then you can go sort of to your account and then you can see like payout you can go to so at the moment I've got nothing to pay out because there's nothing waiting for me but these are just some of the ways you can be paid like MasterCard virgin days Tesco Alford's you can see for example helfrich you'll get 6% bonus if you're paid in Halfords credit it's just tons of places I normally choose Amazon myself because I'd buy a lot of stuff on Amazon but you can have Primark Starbucks it's literally loads of places that you can get paid we can have backs or PayPal that's the one I normally use though Amazon and you get a 2% bonus they pay you in sort of gift card which is electronic it just comes free to your email address another good thing is you can send referrals so if one of your friends signs up once you've been a member I think you get a little bit of cash back once they've made their first purchase so that's a great way of making a little bit of extra on top the other thing with Amazon I like if you got like a YouTube site or something like that you can do become what's called now as an associate you have to apply for this and what is if you bought something that you like like I've sort of go through to review sometimes a lot of things I've bought you then can create a link which links to your sort of account for that item and then if people click on that link you get a little bit of money back don't get tons but you know it's better than nothing again you can be paid straight into your Amazon account if you do all these little things you might never have to spend any of your own money on the Amazon so I either that's another one for those who don't know of course uber is like a taxi service this is like an app on your phone so you pinch your phone link it to your credit or debit card and then you can choose for example you can choose to be picked up outside your house it picks out from the location on your phone or you can choose to be picked up from somewhere else if you click on it and on the apps pretty cool you can see like so they're like the little taxis that are going around at the moment and then you choose your ride where you want to go to let's just have a look and it will then tell you how for the taxi is from you and what time you should expect to arrive so and then you can choose the type of car which will be rubrics is a standard one props for people and a little bit of luggage you can have exec which be a slightly nicer car premium car excel is for people say there's six of you and you've got a bit more luggage so like a people carrier or Lux be ultimate luxury would be like a Mercedes s-class or a BMW 7-series or something like that yeah this works really well it used to be even cheaper because they used to do now they've got me down at the London area and I live about 25 miles from London so there's a minimum charge of five pounds now whereas it never used to be the thing I like about this is you can go to your accountant go to free rides it comes up with a code at the bottom there and you tell your friends or whoever not put a link at the bottom of this video then if your friends sign up using this code you'll get a little bit of money back onto your uber so you'll get a free right basically I think you get free pounds off your next trip so it's all worth doing you basically save a little bit of money by doing that when I have some friends over when we wanted to pop out for my birthday we basically I just sent them codes they sent each other codes it's that way we all sort of saved at them we basically got free rights that's before as a five pound minimum but yeah you can get sort of cheap rights by doing that but yeah it's all ways of saving a bit well it's a website called perfume parlour if you're into your aftershaves and perfumes these are like oils makers this one for example is called aqua the Geo and they're obviously copy sort of perfumes they smell it likes they're called I think and they smell like the originals so this is the website and what you do is you type in the the perfume or aftershave you're interested in and you do a search and they will bring up and they're not allowed to obviously call it the same thing but they put our money for Armani similar to that found in Armani Blanc code and whether it's in stock and you can choose the bottle size so one good thing about this site is I would start off by going for the free meal roll-on it's two pound 25 so if you do that you can try quite a few different ones then see if you like them if you do then you can go onto the bigger sizes the Rowland's are a bit weird the little bull f—ing in them is quite hard to roll on so I actually took that out of mine so what I do is I go onto a 30 mil spray if I like it it's eight pounds in the bottle I just showed you is a 30 mil spray some are better than others that's why I'd suggest trying the free meal ones first some of them I think actually smell better than the original ones and some of them are just really like the smells and because their oil was they last quite a long time on your skin so yeah that's another website that I'd recommend giving a go right and the last thing I'm going to talk about today is credit cards the major rule with credit cards is so you don't get yourself into trouble pay them off the full balance you know I would only use debit cards if it wasn't for the fact you can get things out of credit cards so I've got a Barclays card which gives you cash back it used to be one per sitting but I've cooked it down to half a percent now again doesn't sound like a lot if you're paying for things paying for holidays stuff like that half Upson gives you a bit of cash back so you set up a direct debit you pay off in full every month you use the card so it's done automatically then so you don't have to think about it but yeah you pay it off and then you get half of sin and the thing I like about the Barclaycard one is that you get paid you can just sort of Satan like the cash back now you don't have to wait in free year for it other credit cards that I use a couple for travelling purposes there's men called the Halifax clarity card which is great for traveling when you travel abroad some credit cards they charge you up to two point nine nine percent foreign transaction fees you don't want to do this because you're basically just throwing money away so the Halifax clarity one is very good for using abroad you don't get charged any transaction fees if you take money out for an eight an ATM you will get charged a bit of interest on that money until you get back so as soon as you get back pay off make an extra payment as well as your Directorate so you paid off the card straightaway so you get charged less interest something that's charged daily interview your direct debit comes out otherwise and there's another one I don't know if you have to be invited to if it's called MBNA this also gives you hops in cash bank and it's again got no foreign transaction fees so that's one I use the Broads mostly at the moment I think on that when you do have to wait a year to get the cash back but again is great for abroad because no foreign transaction fees I think one might be MasterCard and one might be Visa and the race sort of changed I think sometimes one supposed to be slightly better race than the other but when I've been checking them they're both pretty similar yeah the BOK because the credit card is great for just using in the UK that does have foreign transaction fees so I don't use it abroad I used Microsoft money on my PC then when I've spent something using the credit card what pill on Microsoft money so then you can see how much money you got in your account so I sort of simulated these come out straight away even that hasn't so you know how much you got left back in your current account until they take the director bit people a couple a day you know you get a bit of cash back the other thing is like with ebook errs for example if you go via top cashback you can get quite a good right back with them on tour cashback like I've shown you eBay that's one point I wonder Singh you get with ebook as I think it's quite a lot more obviously if you're booking a holiday and this for of year you just put you up on your Barclay cards you get your half percent back and you're getting the money back from top cash back on top the other thing I like about ebook is that's another one I'll quickly talk about is they've got their own kind of cashback scheme which is in addition to like going free top cash bank so you booked through ebook errs you get the cash back straightaway and you can use straight away on your next trip the other thing if you spend more than a few nights a year in a hotel they give you a free airport lounge pass once you go to their gold level so I use that when I actually went to get my hair transplant I went to an airport lounge at Heathrow that is an on priority pass using my free pass that I got from gold membership another tip I've got for you is I took out a Hilton credit card and they basically for spending 750 pounds on the card you got a free night in any of their hotels so I managed to stay in the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills I knew I was going to LA anyway and I had to book the flights for a few of us so what I did was put them on the credit card paid it off straightaway and then I got the free night in the hotel if you want to see that I've done natural video on that which I'll link to so check that one out the night I stayed in it was about 600 quid a night if I have to pay for it and that was completely free they have like a Rolls Royce that you can use it was just an amazing suite but yeah check the video out on that they also by having this credit card even if you don't use it after that which I haven't they put you up to silver membership if they're Hilton Honors Rewards sort of loyalty program so you get things like free water bottled water and stuff behind all of their hotels and other little freebies so that's another critical to consider but as usual pay off and fall don't let the interest build up if you've got any questions leave me a comment if you've got any tips leave me a comment if you find these useful subscribe or twenty some more at some point I'm sort of doing my hair transplant series that's one way I've saved money I've got my hair transplant in Turkey rather than the UK if you want to know more about that
