Mobile Cashbacks on BBC Watchdog

Yes I know, over sensationalist rubbish which does fear mongering Panorama and the Daily Mail proud, hardly investigative and in-depth journalism and reporting, still will be interesting to see what happens, what was mentioned:

Chatterbox claims Three suggested and forced the cashback model of only "4 in 10" people claim via stricter rules, letter as proof too from three under 5000 still not received their claims with Chatterbox

Mobile Connections highlighted too, 60,000 customers without their claims

Proof if any was needed to stick to known and established mobile retailers no?

I've used chatterbox, quite a few years ago without any probs.
I think Edi has a problem with Chatterbox's cashback

So it's Threes fault? Surely it's a little on the legally grey side to tell a company to only allow 40% of people to claim without stating so in the original contract?

AIUI was a cashback model, with stricter conditions, suggested by Three for Chatterbox to use, so that they predicted, only 40% of claimants would be successful and/or bother.

Legally obscure and vague enough to make claims legal I suspect, which is how they run anyways, for some to succeed others must fail, some of the retailers were saying they would appreciate cashbacks being completely wiped out, but I'm greedy and organised and my family enjoy all the free months of contract use.

But I can understand why, it can be very messy unless properly run, client or retail side.

Should you want to see the BBC's drivel on this.

Yeah. I thought it was an okay piece as far as those two companies go. But they suggest against cashback contracts completely whereas it just needs a little bit of extra caution.

Also a little unfair to show them browsing other websites.

I didn't recognise the site where they found £1,050 cashback either...

I seriously considered 2x18monthx£40 contracts on orange and o2 a few weeks ago, £1420 total cashback from mobile outlet

I decided against :)

I would only go with a company I trusted, and not be reliant on getting the cashback. I have gone with e2save and onestop phoneshop and had many phonecalls chasing things up, but always got the money.

Haven't seen it myself but Phoneboxdirect offered £1,050 cashback before, not sure if they still do it.

I think Watchdog is repeated in the early hours of one morning with sign language - dashing out to work so haven't got time to search but might be worth looking up if you really want to catch it.
