Quidco and "lowcostholidays.com"

Right, thought I would go through Quidco an get the 6% cash back for booking accommodation only from it, the problem lies in the fact that me and someone else were both looking fo rooms at the same time, their cheapest price, at the times we want to go was £63/person, mine was coming in at £66/person, I thought this strange, so opened up Explorer instead of FF, tapped in details and low n behold I got £63/person, upon loging into Quidco and trying again, the price rises to £66/person again.
So, on this note, Quidco/ Lowcostholidays.com are up to something, anyone else want to shed some light on this, same thing happen etc, how many other e-tailers are doing the same and bumping up the price just to give it back again?

Had that happen loads of times when searching for car/home insurance. I've often found that the quotes are cheaper when not going through Quidco, even though I've entered the exact same details. Oddly enough, the difference usually isn't far off the amount of cashback offered......

I dont use any cashback scheme,but have to say this sounds fraudulent to me-in all seriousness,maybe worth an email to watchdog-I can see them loving this!

yet another reason to use TCB rather than quidco

Hardly. Surely it's just the company in question offering the saving directly to the customer rather than paying Quidco for a referal.

In Mike's case, the saving offered by going direct isn't far off the 6% cashback he'd get by going through Quidco.

Yep, and because of this, the hotel price has now gone up anyway, so it's £66 normally now or £68.50 via quidco, means we could save a little via quidco, it's just the underhand way it has been done, might have a word with my cousin, he works somewhere at the Beeb so see if he wants to stick it in an internal memo to someone related to said consumer action show :-)
