Quidco

I thought that I would do a little post about the fabulous site that is Quidco - the webs cash back co-operative. Quidco is purely and simply a website that gives cash back (worked out on a percentage of what you spend basis) on items that you buy online. As far as I can tell it is the same as Ebates that is available in the US.

It is very simple to get yourself signed up, just head over and click on the JOIN button and follow the instructions. It only takes a few minutes to do and you can then start earning straight away. I have to point out that there is an annual charge of £5. Quidco pass on 100% of what is earned from retailers to their members so they take a £5 admin fee per year this is taken off your account when you transfer funds into Paypal. However, if you do not earn more than £5 in the year you can not move funds to Paypal.

I have been signed up to Quidco for a few months now and I am steadily earning money for nothing. Being a shop owner I am not usually one to take trade away from the High Streets but there are times that we all use online shopping for ease etc. So, when this is the case pop over to Quidco search for the retailer that you want to shop from and if it is an affiliate you can earn cash back on your purchases.

I have decided to mention Quidco on my blog as I know that lots of you guys in the US use Ebates so I wanted us in the UK to know about what is open to us.
Also, I know that lots of you regularly use eBay, well eBay is one of the sites that offer a percentage of cash back if you shop via Quidco.
Others include: Tesco, Asda, The body shop, Play, Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, HMV, House Of Fraser, Republic, Office, All Saints, Miss Selfridge and loads more.

Check it out and sign up!

I'll second the support for Quidco. Definitely worthwhile, particularly for mobile phone deals. (I got £130 cashback when I signed up for my last contract.)

It's important to be sure you're getting the best deal though, you can't haggle when you buy online and sometimes delivery costs will eat up any cashback.
