Maximiles is another one of those favourites of mine so here are a few hints and tips for earning on this site.
If you are not a member of the site already i can refer you. Just so you know I will earn 1000 bonus points when you earn 500 points yourself. If you would like to be referred please email me at email@example.com with the name of the site, your name and the email address you want me to use.
You can claim various gifts and vouchers on this site - i usually choose the vouchers which cost 3000 points for £10.
Maximiles is described on the site as being an online loyalty scheme and i guess this is an attempt to make it stand out from a lot of the cashback sites that are available - it does have a cashback option however unlike a lot of them maximiles offers lots of ways to earn money for free - my favourite way to earn :)
The cashback option works pretty much like every other cashback site so i won't talk about that too much on here - its just about using the link on maximiles to get to another site before purchasing. After your purchase has been made you will earn points which can then be exchanged for gifts or vouchers.
How to earn for free
As i said there are various ways of earning for free - these are:
1. Signing up to various sites or offers There are lots to choose from including survey sites, bingo/gambling sites, mobile phone sims, store newsletters, and many many more. Please note signing up to some of these sites will result in regular posts to your email address.
2. Completing surveys - these are separate from the survey sites and are from maximiles themselves. I find most of these surveys pretty quick easy and interesting (tho there can be a long one here and there). To earn points with maximiles surveys you need to subscribe to the survey panel on the site.
3. Earning emails - quite simply if you subscribe to these you will get sent various offers via email. If you open the email and click through to the offer you will earn 5 points.
4. Personal Profile - If you complete your personal profile the offers you get sent will be more relevant to you. You will also earn points for completing the profile questionnaires. There are 8 different profile questionnaires so you don't have to complete them all at once. You will earn 5 points for each one you complete.
5. Referral - refer up to 5 friends and earn 1000 points for each of them when they earn 500 points.
6. Videos - Very simple earner this one, just watch some videos and rate them to earn from 5 - 20 points. Videos are added all the time so its a good one to top up your points.
7. Credit Card - there is a maximiles credit card that you can apply for. It does have a couple of 0% interest rates at the minute and you earn 1 point for every £1 spent. Easy way to boost your points if you use a credit card anyway. This is a free points option ONLY if you clear your balance each month or just use for the 0% period!
8. Mini Polls - When you log into the home page there will often be a mini poll on the right side just below the navigation bar. Easy 5 points for answering a couple of questions.
9. Recommendations - Also on the right side you will see a list called maximiles recommends - often there are new free earning options posted on here so its worth a quick look.
