How I use Rpoints to make AND save money.
example of how I used Rpoints
to get 36% off my UK car insurance.
I fired up Rpoints
and logged in. Then I looked in the 'Categories' list and selected Motor
This opens a page
with dozens of insurance firms and the points you get when taking out
insurance through Rpoints.
Go to several companies and fill in your details to get a quote and
choose to save the quotes for later use. ( I also print out the quotes
to compare them ). You can recalculate the quotes to see what difference
a rise in the voluntary excess makes, for instance.
Usually the quote already includes a 10% discount for ordering your
I selected Lloyds
TSB in this instance, recalled my saved quotation and paid online with
my credit card.
When I checked my Rpoints account I already had the 7000 points added
'pending', to be awarded about 7 weeks later!
This time delay is normal to stop people trying to cheat the system.
I got 10% off for ordering on-line then, as you can see from the screen
grab of my monitor above, 7000 points to come later worth GBP£70.00.
That makes it about another 35% off, in time, making my years car insurance
GBP£126.35. ( I have a lot of years no-claim-bonus! ).
next pleasant surprise was to find that one of the people ( like you,
dear reader ) who had joined Rpoints
from my link, had reached over 2,500 Rpoints
awarded to them which gave me a one-off bonus of 500 points or a fiver.
It gives me pleasure to know that my introduction to Rpoints
has saved them a lot of money.
has made me money today and saved me money today. Thank you.
