​Agreed. I took this deal a couple of years ago for the cashback. I had no issues cancelling and the person I spoke to was polite and didn't try to pressure me into staying. So long as you remember to cancel in the free period it's easy money.

Good for the cashback, it's pretty useless to have though. I got a mortgage during my free trial, took about a fortnight for them to alert me someone had took it out in my name, this was after I'd got the money. So it's hardly much use.

I did this a few months ago and got about 8.50 I cancelled it online and never had to speak to anyone. I believe that you had to keep it for 20 days. Voted hot

Nice.

Not necessarily. They'll ask for more if they can't automatically match your card to your profile. In my case I did everything online.

TUSSFC is right. The important bit your credit history. These credit reference agencies have invented their credit scores in order to flog you more products, which are entirely useless to you. The CRAs don't lend you money, they don't give you credit cards, HP you cars or give mortgages, so their "opinion" is entirely irrelevant. Lenders do, and each one has different criteria for their products. What matters is the information they hold about you (if you had CCJs, wrongly reported defaults, etc). You can get this information by asking for a statutory report that costs £2.

With the cashback sites though, you can sign up for the free trials, get your free reports (and "scores") and cancel within the first month. That way you get a free report and pocket some money too (which is good enough for a few years of statutory reports if you get them once or twice a year.). (_;)

BTW, there are 3 CRAs: Equifax, Experian and Callcredit. Noddle is the brand name of Callcredit, the smallest and least used of them. So, while it is useful, it doesn't always give you the full picture.

BTW2: I have already done this, but Topcashback didn't track so I had to raise a missing cashback claim. Experian tracked ok.

I did this last year and I did cancel on time but they said they have to keep my details for a year and they send me an email every month to tell me that someone or nobody checked my credit report (of course I need to pay just to see who did). I am not sure when they will stop.

As said pain to cancel.

Whilst it may be a pain in the ass, I am happy knowing that not just any old joe blogs can find out my info. Just think how easy it is to find some information on anyone, DOB, Addresses etc, then use that to gain access to services like this. All this info tends to be dotted over the internet somewhere in one forum or social network site. Social engineering springs to mind here.

Whose bitter the people who vote cold or the OP who resorts to abusing other members? Heh.

Pretty similar strategy when you have nothing constructive to add is to resort to branding people trolls as well. Oh Snap.

There really is no excuse for abusing other people in RL or online so instead of justifying it because someone disagrees with you or heaven forbid votes your deal cold. Just deal with it and learn to conduct yourself better.

Maybe in your mind the deal is good (I checked your history and last 2 deals you posted went freezing) you seem a bit delusional there's no arguing with -214 votes.

0800 number worked fine for canceling, thanks

Due to no-one else seemingly having the same issue as me I am just going to block any payment going to them. I have email proof that I am "almost" completed so I should not be charged anyway due to not being a customer yet.

No chance of me paying 5p a minute. No email to even query them about this.

Gone down to a fiver now..
had to ring them, didn't mention (5p per minuite) *mobile rates may vary like they usually do.
women in philipines somewhere took ages on phone & didn't believe i am who i say i am and therefore asked for paperwork.
long story short cost me over £3 and i'm terribly piS*ed off overall.

I know where their office is (round the corner) but don't want a criminal record over it.

It will make very little difference to your ability to get credit. There … It will make very little difference to your ability to get credit. There is no such thing as a credit score, different lenders will look for different things and score you in different ways. Have a read of the article I linked to on MSE in post #2.

(I've worked at a couple of call centres that sold contracts for services and they always do a credit check after being given consent by customer and an actual score is given back. This was years ago but I distinctly remember scores ranging from 300-1500 from actual checks I did and this was NOT a proprietory check it was an actual score bounced back by experian in real time).

I think people are voting this cold because you can get a free report + cashback from TCB or Quidco, but you can only do each one once, they won't let you have a second free trial, so this is a very good deal. IMO this info should be supplied for free but £2 is better than signing up £6.99 for a month if you have used up your free trials.

@the person that said they have a credit card but never use it, this could have a negative impact on your ability to get credit because lenders might see that you have a line of credit which you never use/used, so if you don't even use any of the credit available you can't be a profitable customer to them. Like others have said, lenders look at your data differently to make their decision, so there is no one rule for all.

Why not use the card for everyday purchases like fuel, food shopping and just pay it off in full each month so you won't pay any interest. Also a credit card gives you protection should anything go wrong like in the event of fraud or a dispute. Do double check with the lender that it's setup to pay off in full though or you will end up getting stung with interest.

got my cashback paid! made sure i cancelled my trial before the 30 days

Heat from me, I have used the free trial and cancelled no problems. I now check once a year and pay the monthly fee for 1 month and again have had no problem cancelling or hard sell. The good thing is you don't need to re-register.

I did this yesterday but it wouldn't recognise my card details. I haven't seen if quidco have attempted to track it. I'd suggest anyone who has signed up for it to check their bank statements to see if equifax have already charged you for it despite offering a month's free trial.

i did this the other day when it was posted i also did it via quidco what a scam and a joke they are .. was meant to be 8 quid but they put it through as 5 quid whats that all about.....plus i have never received any cashback from them since joining... and yes i have used them all my purchases say tracked and have done for 4 months now no one gets back to you .......

You should have received your report fairly quickly, as it usually takes around a week.

Give Equifax a call on 0870 010 0583. It may be that they need further ID, or it may simply be because the request has been mislaid. Good Luck.

Just for the hell of it I signed up for the free Experian trial. What it was, for some unknown reason I can't get a credit card issued by GE Capital, nobody else has a problem with me. GE always send the standard "We check credit history with Experian and can't discuss reasons for refusal blah blah, to obtain a copy of your credit report send £2 blah blah".

Well.....

Having checked my Experian report its completely clean EXCEPT for GE Capital. Apparently I had an account with them in 2001 that I settled (and its CLEARLY marked on the report as settled) BUT, and here it gets interesting, i've defaulted on FIVE payments on that account in the last 36 months! Assuming i'm reading the report correctly.

Seriously NOT happy with GE Capital at this point in time and i'm going to pursue this:x

My reports from both Experian and Equifax arrived within 3 days of me filling out the online request.
