The new school year can be expensive, but thanks to Matalan and TopCashback, you can get a new school uniform worth £15 for free.

It might sound too good to be true, but it’s not. This deal is offered to new customers of cashback website TopCashback until August 25th, or until 5,000 school uniforms have been claimed. Whichever one happens first!

Simply head to Matalan’s website, buy a school uniform, and then wait for TopCashback to refund you the full price. You have to spend at least £15 for the deal to be valid, so make sure you’ve got enough in your basket!

This deal can be redeemed online, although Matalan do charge £3.95 for delivery which you can’t get refunded through the TopCashback website. Instead, you could shop online then click and collect to make sure you save.

Examples of the school uniform include two-packs of polo shirts and jumpers from £2.50 and sweatshirts, skirts and trousers from £3. All essential items for the autumn term!

If you’re already a TopCashback customer, you’re sadly unable to use this offer as it’s only open to new customers. It can only be redeemed once and is on a first come, first saved basis, so you’d better be quick!

Once you’ve made your purchase online, the £15 will be refunded to you. However, this can take up to 14 days after the promotion end date, so you’ll have to be patient. It'll be worth it after all.

TopCashback can be used on a variety of popular online retailers, so once you’ve used this Matalan offer there are plenty of other sites to explore and save cash. It’s hard to say no to that!
