So if quidco gives 100% cashback

then maybe they aren't negotiating hard enough on our behalf?

If they're getting £50 for us for a phones4u contract and Topcashback are getting £65 then surely we're all better off with Topcashback? Plus there's no annual fee so you're £5 better off because of that each year, and you can refer friends to get £2.50 which quidco don't offer. And they match other offers, so if you find quidco offer more for something then they'll match it.

The only thing is I don't see how they make any money? Surely doing this they are just going to make a loss?

Then there's cashbackkings (from rpoints) who offer pretty much the same thing, no fee, top rates of cashback with a promise to match others on request. Referral fees paid to you (£5 for 2 members I think).

They also offer £65 for phones4u.

So maybe it's time to drop quidco?

maybe they are making money pre-sales? Companies could pay them to be on the website... advertising and all...

Maybe, but I've found the other 2 sites to be fine and they pay a bit more in some cases and match other offers and don't charge a fee!

They could be, but from what quidco has said before I think their income came solely from the £5 a year fee, which doesn't exist for these sites.

Topcashback

We're going to end this newsletter on a REAL HIGH. Amazingly, we can offer 55% cashback on Ebay. (Though remember, this is 55% cashback on the revenue which Ebay makes - not on the purchase price). Even better, by working hard behind the scenes on your behalf, we believe we are the first cashback site to allow you to make missing commission claims for any untracked Ebay cashback.

I have found TOPCASHBACK great they all track so far for me and i had no problem when i asked for my cheque last

I've only used quidco so far & have just signed up to ipoints because mysupermarket.com don't use quidco yet.

Are there some that are the other way round - with quidco offering more cashback than topcashback or does it always tend to be this way round?

worto.

Some people use all 3 of the ones you mention for max rewards but im to lazy to sign up with them so just use quidco.

There might be the odd thing that quidco offer more on, but both sites have a highest cashback offer which means that they'll match quidco if you ask them to. In most cases they'll probably have matched them already.

You may then get charged a £5 annual fee if you want to match quidco, but I don't think it's necessary as you can ask cashbackkings to match before you make the purchase so you won't get charged the £5 annual fee.

And why do they all claim to have exclusive rates? Quidco say the £100 they pay for AOL is exclusive to them, but cashbackkings pay the same!

maybe cashbackings are giving away more money for the attention? than they actually are receiving in payment from AOL
trying to get people to go via them opposed to quidco.
Jeez, it's simple business tactics.

They really must be losing money then! Taking no annual fee and giving out more than they're receiving!

you really didn't grasp what i said before did you?!

example:

B&Q pay topcashback an amount for having their shop on the topcashback website, thus why they don't take an annual feee. They are receiving a fee prior to customers using the website. Or, topcashback could receive an amount for each customer that goes through the website...

But they surely can't be getting paid that much? If the quidco amount is 100% then I can't see another company being paid more than quidco. Why would b&q pay topcashback alot more than they pay quidco???

because they tell them the6y will get X amount of referrals for them...... they haggle them to give them a better off

i havent seen this with other cashback sites but quidco gives stuff away...... e,g, its a free phone (i think), and £5 play vouchers etc....... they do competitions with their "advertisers"

Cashbackkings do the same thing.

I would've thought that quidco would have the most bargaining power.

Rates are usually tiered by the Merchant - get X sales and get X% per sale. Other cashback sites (which are most likely less popular) are maybe updating the amount they pass on quicker. You can never tell if the cashback site in question is giving 100% of affiliate payment- they may just might be passing on the standard base % and pocketing the rest.
