Quidco -how likely are they to cancel an account?

Im painfully aware (and afraid) of quidco's ability to cancel an account if they suspect its being abused. I've always used it purely for myself, however i've just noticed this deal:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/232230/vodafone-sim-only-10-per-month-90-q/

Now my mum has been on at me to get her one of these 30-day contracts for a while now, and this seems like a good time as i'd stand to make 45 quid out of it (being the kind hearted soul that I am I would of course split it with her). However, I myself signed up for an orange contract last month when they were offering £150 cash back.

Are quidco likely to get suspicious if im taking out two contracts within a month of each other? The £150 from orange has been validated but payment isnt expected for another couple of months, and i'd really hate to lose it. At the same time I dont want to miss out on a hot (uk) deal for me and my dear old ma'.


What do people reckon?

You'll be fine!

If you are worried, why not go through another cashback site (one that doesnt charge) as they all have similar offers on

I have used my quidco to buy four mobile contracts in thepast few months os I really dont see how they would cancel. I think if you ordered 10 voda £10 deals then they may say you are abusing it but two seperate companies would surely be ok. There is a quidco thread to ask a quidco rep if you are worried though.

Go for it, shouldn't be a problem,
i know people who take out new phone deals(just to get a phone) while they still have contracts with other providers. It's not unusual to have more than 1 mobile contract anyway.
As lond as you go through the quidco link and complete the transaction it will be fine. Sometimes it's not validated until they take the 1st payment or whatever.
if the vodafone deal is good for you and her then great (please remember its about 75 mins and 400 texts or something, so if she goes over her minutes - as there are not alot- you'll get charged extra).
Cheers

erm ... just for future reference, Quidco and HUKD are owned by the same person as far as I'm aware (Admin), so this might not always be the best forum to discuss Quidco issues like this... For my part (in case anyone reading this happens to have access to my personal details both here and on Quidco), I'd like to make it clear that I love both sites and would never abuse either :whistling:

Your not doing anything wrong, both providers make their money and have a sale so nothing underhand is being done.
Is there a rule which states how many mobiles you can have ?? No ( I have 3 all with different sims in) :thumbsup:

Just to make you fully aware and others they can and would cancel if you were found to be abusing Quidco and you would loose everything here is the extract from the terms and conditions
