Quidco is not gauranteed, therefore it is not £53.38

The OP did state the cost per month as well though.

If this phone appeals to you, this is a good deal! Just remember to be on the freakin ball with the cashback

Yes, but the actual price has been put at £53.38, which might not be correct if quidco is declined or doesnt track

AND you haven't mentioned that this is [COLOR="Red"]also dependant on cashback from e2save! If you don't manage to get the cashback or the quidco, this will cost 12 x £35 = £420 [/COLOR]

* PLEASE MODIFY THE OP TO REFLECT THIS *

EDIT: And the stuff in red is why it is cold for me...

them cashback deals are a pure scam, and considering e2save is a sister company of the carphone warehouse who are notorious for not honouring cashback deals this is a cold vote for me

I thought the consensus was that CPW are good for cashback but their subsidiaries are dodgy!
I’ve found CPW to be excellent for cashback and they even honoured a cashback claim that I made for my befuddled mother which was about two months after the bill was sent. I’d even go as far as to say that their cashback service has been outstanding from my experience of 3 separate contracts that myself and family members have had with them.

i totally agree, coming to end of second contract and both have paid up on all cashbacks

It’s not just that they paid up; they sent me a text to acknowledge receipt of my claim and then another text less than a week later to confirm that they’d accepted the claim. It meant that I didn’t need to sweat over whether I’d get the money or whether they’d received the claim so I didn’t need to phone them.

I used to have to phone The Link as they were very slow to process claims but it worked against them one time as they told me to resend the claim as they were so slow in processing them and I ended up getting cashback 3 times for the same claim. I would normally have returned the two duplicate cheques but they were so inefficient which led to me wasting time chasing them up that I just thought screw you I’ll keep all three.

they text me on receipt of each claim too and then one when each one had been accepted, at the end of my last contract i cancelled the contract 2 days early and my bill come obviously minus 2 days worth of the bill and thought well thats blown that cashback, but sent it in anyway in the hope i may get it, and i did, i was well chuffed

The phone is a clearance model i.e a return

one of my mates worked for a outsourced company that dealt with CPW o2 cashback and everyday he was telling me about the many people that lost out on their cashback, by not meeting criteria or forgetting, then trying to claim it later, plus i worked for one of the retailers that offered cashback on line rentals, more hassle than its worth for the customer in my experience

Buy a K800i or 810i much better phone similar price. I doubt this deal will work they never do just look around at the comments

The criteria for my CPW cashback is very straightforward, no BS. If people can’t follow basic rules then that’s their fault not the company’s.

In total I have had 7 contracts on full cashback deals over the past 6years and never had any declined, o but then again thats because I followed the terms and conditions. Totally agree with Agharta

Just please don't take out one of these type of deals if you are slightly forgetful

I have used both e2save and OneStopPhoneShop (both part of CPW) for cashbacks. When the forms arrived at the start of the contract I filled them all out in advance, wrote a redemption date on each one, filed them away, then put a reminder in Outlook that would pop up every two or three months and remind me to post each claim. I did that because I am a hopelessly disorganised and forgetful bloke. It worked brilliantly and I rarely missed a cashback.

It's not quite free money,as registered post costs four or five quid a throw, but it's pretty damn close. If you are the sort to forget to send your cashbacks then this deal is not for you. If you can get yourself organised enough to keep your end of the deal CPW will in my experience keep theirs with no quibbling or foot dragging.

Send the correct bill in at the right time, recorded delivery. Never had a problem myself using Dial A Phone and e2save.
#17
i too fill out all the vouchers as soon as i get them and then print out the dates at which to send back and fasten to front of cashback voucher envelope

i have a box - when each bill comes in i add it to the correct pile (i usually have about 3 ongoing) then write on outside of envelope which month bill it is and then check my printout to see if it is a qualifying bill or not - if it is photocopy attach voucher and send rec delivery

upto now never missed a cashback payment with onestop, e2save and phones4u
