Quidco -- cashback from online purchases in UK

[Thread split from Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.]

I'm really pleased to hear how many of you managed to get this laptop before Interdiscount realised their mistake, and thanks for your kind emails, thanking me.

Okay, one last message, for all you English deal hunters.
(This one has nothing to do with InterDiscount.)

If any of you regularly do internet shopping using UK websites, then go and register with QuidCo. And get your friends to. And your family.

It is amazing how many people don't know about this site.

Basically, it contains links to hundreds of everyday websites: M&S, Dell, Apple, Play.com, Tesco, HMV, Boots, Hertz, Expedia, etc etc.

If you visit any of these stores websites via the QuidCo website, then you still make purchases through the stores own website, you still pay the same amount... but a little while later, you get some of that money back again as pure hard cash.

Even now, living in Switzerland, I'll still book my UK car hire via QuidCo, book it through Hertz's own website... then get 10% of my cash back again later. Same for hotel bookings, CDs, and so on.

And if you live in the UK (which, okay, us lot don't anymore), then when you use QuidCo to pay for car or home insurance, then you get loads of cashback, as the behind-the-scenes commission is high.

In the last year that I lived in the UK, I paid Prudential 225 for fully-comp car insurance. But because I went via QuidCo's website, about a month later, I got 110 of that back again.

Sounds like a con, sounds too good to be true, but for once, it isn't. Even The Sunday Times has them on their Top 100 Fast Track companies.
(Try Googling "quidco Sunday Times fast track")

Re: Quidco -- cashback from online purchases in UK

I'm still in the UK and use Quidco. Just bought a new camera and Jessops was the cheapest online. Using Quidco I got 4% cash back on top. It's just a case of remembering to go via the Quidco site.
