How to get quids in from your family’s annual purchases

You’ve probably heard your parents or family members talking about their car, home, or pet insurance and never really given it a second thought. Now’s the time to be paying attention, as when they’re renewing these kinds of annual purchases, you could be earning up to £50 each time for free.

Think about everyone you know, each one of those people will be at some point this year renewing their car, home, pet, life insurance, or switching their mobile, internet, gas, or electric provider. And, each time they do, you could have £50 in your pocket for free.

Think about those same people again. How many of them will be booking a summer holiday this year? Whether they’re thinking far away shores, or something a little closer to home, you could have up to £30 in your pocket for free.

To start earning from your family’s annual purchases, sign up to Funds4Uni via easyfundraising for free. Sites like, Compare the Market,, Pet Plan, TUI,,, Thomas Cook, and thousands more will give you money for free, as a thank you for your family members switching, renewing, or booking with them. It’s that simple. These are the big-ticket items, but you can also earn money with brands like ASOS, H&M, JD Sports, boohoo, North Face, Urban Outfitters and, many more.

Whether you’re new to Funds4Uni or already have an account, here are your top tips for getting quid’s in on the big-ticket items:

  • Make sure you have a Funds4Uni account.
  • Contact family and friends and ask them when their insurance policies are up for renewal or when their household bill contracts end. Then tell them they can help you earn up to £50 each time they switch.
  • Ask those same people when they’re booking their holiday this year. Tell them they could earn you up to £30 when they book.
  • Sign them up to Funds4uni as one of your ‘supporters’ and sit back and watch the money add up.

Whether you’re a first-year Uni student or third, a Funds4Uni account is a fantastic way of making university life that little bit easier.
