This is one for the smart phone generation.

If you have the Quidco App for either Android or Iphone not sure about other operating systems, You can check in at selected shops and earn FREE CASH if your in the town out and about.
Open the Quidco App and tap filter and tap show check in deals only then go back to main quidco screen and search nearby this will give you a list of retailers that you can check in at and earn free money.

I tested this App in St Stephens shopping centre and surrounding Area while shopping in Hull

you won't find much of that here.Heat added money for free
People like free money.

Lot of people (Oddly) like checking in to places.

Win as far as I can see. Thanks OP.
can't be cold surely it's something for nothing. if you are out in town take the second to check in ..job done
They have been doing this for the last year, not exactly new news

Plus in my location the app is terrible, im stood in the store to get cashback, and it says im 500m down the road, near on impossible to get cashback from that store

Fair enough for a heads up for people who don't know, but i won't vote either way as to me its old news

To be fair the accuracy of the app isn't in question it depends on your smart phone

@davidian84 their is also a printer/stationers near old town in hull

And to clarify this app is nation wide not limited to just hull hence the instructions to find out what's near you

So let's get some free money
95p for the privilege to go to st stephens? im ok thanks
good find though, might as well if you find yourself walking past them

Your missing the point pat I was shopping round hull and found them what could other larger city's hold
If you cant check in when in the shop then look at the map in the app for that shop and it will show you where to go to check in for that site. Sometimes shops within shopping centres have a postcode which leads the app to think the location is not quite where it really is.
nice, u can just use a mod for ur iphone to fake location so thats a way to generate income xD
you can only check in o ce a day. modding your phone to earn less than a quid a day hardly makes you an evil genius!

been using this a while! good for those that don't know
its not once a day. probably once a week or 2 weeks cos when i tried 2 consecutive days and it did not give check in option on day 2.
but still hot

It's once a week, not bad for shopping centres, loads of phone shops. Apps shows you all the nearest shops and amounts of money. I'm using it for a few months now, got a few quid for a new PS3 game. Heat added.
Been doing this for over a year now.
Nice one, I'd not heard of this so thanks for the info.
Been using the app for months, it really is FREE money
Never works for me, never says I'm in the right place. When in a shopping centre you often don't get 3G signal so you can't do anything anyway.
I've been using it for a while now. Whenever the mrs drags me off to the shops. It kills time while she's browsing and normally manage to rack up enough check-ins to cover the parking fees!
I've been using it from 6 months and the check-in's are not every day. It comes twice or thrice in a month and depends on the city you live.
Heat added OP.
even if you don't use the app, check in through their website online before you do online shopping. Been using for a few years and have racked up just under £600 for doing shopping I would normally be doing anyway. how could that possibly be cold?? heat from me!
topcash back.. if they did this.. POW!
Hi!

We know how much you all love the check-ins on our app, and this is just the start!

We're continuing to build this for you and you won't have to wait long for the next fantastic phase, because next month our relaunch will provide you with lots more retailers to choose from.

We know you'll be as excited as we are about this!

Kind regards,

Jules

Has anyone used the location JB app to do all this from home?
@DzonAFC great to know it's once a week.

I came across this sometime last year, never had chance to do it before I forgot; this time actually downloaded the app!

Definitely needs more check on deals, but a pound pocket money once a week for nothing doesn't hurt.
It's says at the end of the year they will take £5 from you. But you can only do a certain amount of check ins. So will you be able to get enough free money before they take £5 from you.

That's only if you do 'normal quidco' savings by using the website and track-backs. The Check-ins are paid out in the same month and not subjected to the fiver fee.
thanks op
Gonna have to try this out
Just a tip for all the people using iPhone jailbroken, download a Fake Location tweak and use it to fake your location so that you can check into any store, just adknoledge the direct location of the shop on the quidco app, then do the same on the fake locator, I made £5 from it

So I suppose you saw the above post from Quidco themselves a few posts up and still felt the need to pubically declare yourself as abusing the check-in system?

Let's hope you're also stupid enough to get caught.

I have no idea, for me some have synced with the payout date, which are two in one month, the 1st and then the 15th, but not all that were available to me on the 1st, reactivated after I got paid the second time.

I can only go by the hull area as this is where I found it but depending on locale it would look like every 2/3 wks depending on the vendor issuing the cash back Quidco have stated in this thread that, "We're continuing to build this for you and you won't have to wait long for the next fantastic phase, because next month our relaunch will provide you with lots more retailers to choose from."
