Frequently Asked Questions
  • Yes, you need to open an account in order to use Boom25's website and it's free! You can set up an account just by entering your name, email address and chosen password. Then, you'll be able to access your personalised dashboard, where you’ll see all of your shopping activity, details of your winnings and any bonuses! If you need help, please contact us.

  • Aha! We have a clever little algorithm which fairly picks the winner on every qualified 25th purchase (or fewer, depending on the offer’s odds). As soon as someone wins, we start counting again! Once a purchase is approved it’s entered into a draw of 1:25 - the lucky 25th purchase is the winner. When a winner is chosen, you’ll receive an email and play Spin the Wheel to see if you have won!

    *Please note all wins are limited to a maximum £20,000 payout. All wins exceeding this amount not be paid in full. 

    *All purchases are valid for full refunds excluding all fast food. Please note all fast food wins will be paid out at 50% of their purchase sum. All food orders must be made at maximum £60. 

  • Cookies are small pieces of information stored in your browser. We use them so that the store knows how much commission to pay us, and we know how much to pay you if you win! They’re probably enabled already but if they’re not, you can discover how to enable them on your browser at http://www.whatarecookies.com/enable.asp.  This is Boom25’s cookies list.

    Make sure to clear all cookies before entering Boom25. This way, once in our site, you can enable our cookies so your purchase can track without interference.

  • Choose to pay-as-you-go and you’ll be entered only for the first month you pay for and no more than that, even if you keep using the service after. But if you pay for three months in a go - you're entered once to win the full three months cash back!

    With GlossyBox specifically, if you pay for the subscription cost upfront for the months you choose, that gets tracked on to Boom25 and you are entered into a draw to win back the entire subscription amount. If you choose to pay month by month, only the first month's cost is entered on Boom25 and you are entered in a draw for a chance to win that month’s payment back.

  • Sometimes there are slight delays in orders due to tracking problems - meaning the order won’t show up on your Dashboard yet. This problem is usually due to the existence of cookies or add-ons from other sites on users' devices of which they are not aware, or the use of coupons and voucher codes. Did you make sure to clear your cookies before placing your order? It’s important to delete all cookies before you enter Boom25 and make your purchase. If you don’t, it’s possible that your transaction might be tracked to a different website you’ve used in the past and will not go through the Boom25 system.

    If you’ve already cleared your cookies and are still having troubles seeing your order on your Dashboard, please contact us.

  • If you are having issues logging in to your account, please send us the email linked to your Boom25 account along with a screenshot of the error message received when attempting to log in.

  • Firstly, since this isn't the first time this has happened we suggest you try making an order from a different device than the one you've been using until now. Sometimes users have all sorts of add-ons or configurations installed on their device which they are unaware of. This can prevent tracking on Boom25, so delete your cookies and start over!

  • If you are a new customer to Tesco's or ASDA online, you’re in for a 1:25 Boom25 prize draw - complete refund of your purchases.

For your £1 bonus, please check your ‘My Bonus’ section to review your bonus funds and purchases  - they won’t appear on your Dashboard.

  •  All products purchased via Reserve & Collect at any retailer must be purchased on line and paid for so it can be processed through Boom25 properly. There may be a chance that items can be untracked and not processed through the Boom25 system, therefore we cannot under any circumstances track an item that has been bought and then paid for at the collection site if untracked. 

  • Just click Forgot Password and you will be sent an directions for changing your password to enter your account. We do not change or update any emails.

  • Please clear all your cookies before entering Boom25 and enable them once on our site to ensure all purchases will be properly tracked by our system.

  • Aha! This is called ‘manual tracking’. Unfortunately we cannot track any Tesco or ASDA Groceries orders in addition to Just Eat orders. We can attempt to manually track others but this varies depending on how cookies are enabled. Basically, before you shop, make sure to go through Boom25 so we can easily your orders and bonuses and promotions.

  • We take privacy and security very seriously. This is our privacy policy.

  • No. You can read our privacy policy here but the bottom line is that we don’t sell data. That’s not our game.

  • No catch. Really, none! Every time someone makes a purchase through Boom25, we receive a commission from the store as an affiliate partner. We keep a little of that commission to pay for the business and collect the rest for our Boom 25 winners. The pooled cash funds are the pay out for every lucky 25th purchase. Whatever you bought, we’ll refund it. That’s it.

    *Please note all wins are limited to a maximum £20,000 payout. All wins exceeding this amount not be paid in full. 

  • A qualified purchase is a sale that has been made through Boom25 from one of our retail partners’ websites. We will be notified by the retailer about a qualified purchase as long it is complete and can no longer be refunded or cancelled – we have to protect ourselves and our partner retailers from products being returned.

    So if the purchase has been refunded or cancelled, it’s disqualified and no longer eligible to win.

  • We send the money as soon as the store tells us that everything’s peachy. That can take a bit of time. Every store is different. We’ve found that some of our retail partners may be a bit slow with their processing and reporting but we always try to get the payment out as quickly as we can. As stores change their procedures, we also need to adjust our payment schedules.

  • We’re registered in England and Wales, complying with stringent regulations under UK trading laws. As with any business, you’re protected by the law and we pride ourselves on our exceptional customer service.

    With Boom25 you’ll buy a product from a store you know, you’ll receive it… and if you’re the 25th Boom25 shopper you'll win your money back. That’s all there is to it!
