its the norm, they charge everyone a membership fee, with the possibility of making a lot of money from them its not that significant and money was not really your in the first place!!

Quidco
How does the membership admin fee work?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As a cooperative, our £5 annual membership admin fee is basically an administration charge that keeps us Quidco'ing. Unlike other sites we pass on the full 100% of earnings we receive from merchants which means Quidco cashback rates are generally double that of elsewhere. All we keep in exchange for giving you 100% of earnings is £5 a year.

The £5 membership admin fee is never charged, but only deducted when you have earned enough to cover it. It is deducted annually based on your registration date (and is only deducted from transactions made from that date). It will always be deducted from the first £5 earned in each year of your membership.

Example 1. Joe signs up to Quidco and never buys anything through the site. He has never earned any Quidco money so there is no money for us to hold our £5 fee from. Nothing happens.

Example 2a. Alex signs up to Quidco in November 2006 and earns £140 in his first month. On his first payment £5 is held back and he is paid £135. For the rest of his registration year until November 2007 nothing more is held back by Quidco.

Example 2b.Alex keeps on buying! In November 2007 Alex doesn't buy anything through Quidco but in December Alex earns another £95. Quidco keeps back the first £5 he has made since his November registration anniversary, leaving him with £90 earned from since November 2007. Again nothing more will be held back until his next anniversary in November 2008.

Example 3.Alison joins Quidco in February 2006. Between February 2006 and February 2007 she only earns £3.40. As Quidco keeps back the first £5 earned in a year she does not receive any money. However, in April 2007 Alison starts an online shopping spree earning £87 through Quidco. Her first year activity (or lack of) does not affect her second year and Quidco only holds back £5 as usual making her first second year payment £82.

the site doesn't run itself I'm afraid, £5 a year really isn't that much to get money you wouldn't have had anyway.

Oh i didnt know that. Yes I guess it wasnt mine to start with but still a kick in the teeth all the same!!!
#6
Unless you've completely ignored all the terms and conditions and clicked straight through, they do make it very clear that they keep the first £5 you make of each 12 month period. It is very clear and I find it hard to believe that you did not see that.
#7
It costs £5 a year to be a member. But it still works out good for you as you are not actually paying them and you still get payments from them.
#8
yep as everyone else said, you pay a £5 admin charge a year....only once you have over £5 do they decuct it
#9
it's not a charge its a deduction, so say next year you decide not to use quidco they won't take £5 from you

You could always use www.topcashback.co.uk as they don't charge membership fee. But some of the cashback deals are less than quidcos.
#22

there was a time where car insurance was a winner, prudential used to pay £150 per policy, its nowhere near that good these days. a lot of mine come from things like booking holidays, but instead of doing a package deal book each bit individually, the tracked payment for this month is just 10% back from a hotel booking, ill get another 10% for resorthoppa when booking the transport.

gambling sites are good, or used to be, used to be a case of deposit £10 and get £30 cashback etc.

Free they might be but this is what makes Quidco special, and worth the £5:
Finally! The ultimate Quidco Enquiry Amnesty

February 25th, 2009
We are happy to announce that we are clearing out the last of those old earnings enquiries that are still in "sent to merchant" status for the second half of 2006 and all of 2007.

The first time we did this type of amnesty (we clear them from our own pockets as we haven't had a valid/invalid resolution back) was for 2005 enquiries, and our second enquiry amnesty covered enquiries through the first half of 2006. Now we're resolving enquiries from the rest of 2006, through the end of 2007 which cleans up all of the old unresolved enquiries. Phew!
