Earn handy extra cash through refer-a-friend schemes

We’re all for ways of making a little extra money – especially if it gives you a little extra to save – so here’s a useful tip we’d like to pass on!

We all know how easy it is to spend a little too much over Christmas, but here’s a tip to help build up the coffers again.

There is a lot up for grabs from all kinds of companies, from savings and investment providers, to insurance and utility companies, and even online groceries. If you know someone who is about to switch banks or energy suppliers, or take out a savings plan bear this in mind as these businesses can offer great incentives and may accept more than one referral!
