Ok so I've signed up for quidco, now I have absolutely no idea what i'm supposed to do! Please could somebody explain it to me in laymans terms, i'd be very grateful indeed as I feel like I am missing out on something good lol
Sorry if this seems like i'm being a tad dumb but I just don't have a clue where to start.
Many thanks in advance x

Basically, before you purchase something online first check on quidco and see if its one of the vendors they have on site. If it is click on the link on quidco to redirect to the site your buying off and then complete the purchase and youll get a kick back for the trouble!

topcashback is like quidco, but no fees.

Say you are looking for Inception on DVD. You have used a site such as http://www.find-dvd.co.uk to find the cheapest price which is Zavvi for £9.99.

Either clear the cookies from your web browser or open up a new browser and type in http://www.quidco.com.
Login using your email and password
Search for Zavvi in the search bar
Click on continue to merchant and it will tell you the percentage available.
Click on continue to merchant again and it will take you to the site.
Then shop as you normally would.
The cashback may take an hour, few hours or a few days to track. Once it has tracked it is usually another two or three months before it is payable

As others have said you should use http://www.topcashback.co.uk as it offers a higher percentage and there is no £5 fee unlike with quidco. It works exactly the same so the same steps apply

You can use both :)
#10
I have both, sometimes you can better cash from quidco, sometimes from topcashback.

I would just reiterate how important it is to clear cookies before, or open up a new browser. Many of the tracking issues come from not doing this so the cashback is awarded to another link. So for example if you click on a deal here for Inception and you decided to buy it, if you dont clear cookies or open a new browser then hotukdeals would be paid the commission instead of topcashback meaning you wouldn't get your cashback

Ok, so I clear the cookies, is this everytime I take it?
So, I spot something I want to buy, like the dvd, I clear my cookies and go onto quick, click through the merchant and buy as usual and hey presto sometime in the near future I get cashback? Just making sure I've got it otherwise i'll be posting again pulling my hair out lol

Yeah you got it! So just clear your cookies each time you are going to get cashback. The majority will vote topcashback - no fees, majority high % cashback, better tracking. I have no real preference but use topcashback simply because no fees

"Quidco rarely tracks......use Top Cash Back"

ive had 3.5 years of quidco and every single transaction has tracked and paid out, im pushing nearly £2000 as well over this time and its never failed. i think it depends on whether you follow the instructions or not.

Steer well clear of Quidcrap.
#21
I have just purchased something through Top cashback so will let you know if it worked! I Sooo wish I had done this before Christmas! Thanks again for everyone's help :0) Quidco doesn't seem as popular on here, is that purely because of the initial charge or are there other reasons?
#22
Abysmal after sales service is the reason i will NEVER use them again.
Bad tracking, condescending, ill-informed staff, and a £5 fee all for a service thats 2nd rate to Topcashback.

Avoid!

Not great then? Lol wow thanks for the warning, will stick with Top Cashback. I know this sounds stupid but the money you earn back, do you have to spend it online or can it be transferred to your bank?

Same here. Never had a problem with Quidco although I switched to TCB because of the annual fee.

I've had some transactions not track and tbh I couldn't be bothered to badger them as they'd have been a few pence each. I'm now using TCB and so far so good. On Asda, they tracked 4 times so I had £20 pay out!

Well I'm 32p up! Ok so its not much but its a start and I'm excited about it! So thank you again everyone I shall be sticking with Top Cashback. :0)
