Cash back with bonus

Money readers get fees back and more

DID YOU KNOW THAT when you take out a financial product, such as income insurance or a home loan, you continue to pay fees and trailing commissions, even though you may no longer be utilising the services of your adviser or broker?

For example, on a typical home loan you’re paying around $900 a year in fees and commissions – all for what? When was the last time you heard from your broker since signing up for the loan?

So imagine if somebody said to you: “We can claim back that trailing commission for you.” That’s what cashback service providers do. All you have to do is sign up with your nominated cashback provider and it will claim back (also known as “claw” back) the fees and commissions. The provider takes a percentage and you get to pocket the rest. It’s money for jam!

It’s not just insurance and home loans you can claim your money back on. You can also claw back fees and commission on superannuation, pensions, investment funds and margin loans, just to name a few.

As our reader offer this month, we’ve got some great incentives – exclusive to Money magazine readers – if you go ahead and claw back these fees and commissions through cashback provider YourShare.com.au. There are several cashback providers on the market, but we’ve hooked up with YourShare.com.au, which has won our Best Cashback Provider award every year since 2009.

If you register your eligible financial product with YourShare.com.au to claim your money back, you’ll receive $50 towards your first year’s cashback account, plus you’ll go into the draw to win a $1500 travel voucher. Additionally, if you take out a new home loan or life or income insurance policy, or switch home loans or life or income protection insurance via YourShare.com.au, you’ll get $500 cash back.

It’s so simple! You simply register your financial product with YourShare.com.au and it will guide you through the process. Once YourShare.com.au receives your forms it will start working to get money back into your pocket. You receive 50% of every dollar YourShare.com.au collects for you until your refund amounts to $295, then 100% of every dollar above that amount. So, for example, if YourShare.com.au claws back $1, you will receive 50c; if they claw back $4000 you will receive $3705. The maximum annual fee YourShare.com.au retains is $295.
