HomeServe Cover 8 for £114 per year + TCB £84/Quidco £80 + £50 Argos Voucher = £30 for a £50 Argos Voucher

Found 2nd Dec 2015
HomeServe Cover 8 provides cover for all sorts of issues at home (boiler, plumbing, electrical...). £9.50 per month with £50 excess (£114 per year). It doesn't include an annual boiler service.
There's £84 TCB/£80 Quidco and you receive a £50 Argos Voucher.
If you assume TCB pays out, you're essentially paying £30 for a £50 Argos Voucher even if you value the cover at 0.

wow this is hons get hot
Home serve doesn't allow you to claim under the policy in the first 28 days, so you're effectively paying for 12 months for a 11 month policy.
Massive jump for zero excess.
You can lose the Argos voucher for a free service, but I'm not too sure if you would still receive the cashback?
This is the kind of deal HUKD is about. Nice one OP.
Boom.
Super Scorchio. Now that's a find

Quidco states that you won't get cashback if you take the free service.
Can only take this out if you live in a house not a flat
all boiler policies exclude the first 28 days of a new policy

Hammered :-)
Bet that they won't cover our ancient Baxi Bermuda back boiler
You can claim the £200 towards New boiler though.
Didn't pay out my tcb. Their contactors came out 5-6 times to the same problem and never fixed it. Deemed my 4 year old boiler beyond economical repair! Thankfully homserve didn't agree with them, subcontracted to the manafacturer and new heat exchanger sorted it in 20 mins. Will be going with domestic and general next year.
Great deal but shocking company. Worse than b gas.
Mm, can go for a policy with free boiler service but you don't get the argos voucher....
Is there an expiry date for this offer?
don't expect this to payout on TCB , look at the reviews and sort them into 'newest first' LOL ....... I'm out
my HomeServe Cover 8 expired during september and i didnt renew!
so can i buy it again and get tcb/argos voucher?

HomeServe Argos voucher offer expires on 22 December.

Which URL are people getting 404 on? The HomeServe, Quidco and TCB URLs all work for me.

I think some people are slightly missing the point. If you think TCB/Quidco will pay out (97/98% tracking stats), and you want a £50 Argos voucher, you can pay £30 for that voucher.
You can just ignore the fact that you get some cover that you can choose to use or not.

Don't count on the TCB though ...... looks extremely unlikely to pay out judging by the recent reviews on TCB ..... pages and pages of them complaining of not receiving their cashback and this is going back from recent weeks to past few years

I had the same experience. Cashback never paid. Contractor came third time after missing the first 2 appointments and could not fix anything in the boiler. These are complete cowboys in the name of a big company. Avoid them.
£50 excess for plumbing ,
you can take out the plumbing and drainage policy for £6 per year and no excess i have used this many times and is great

I have 5 outstanding payouts from TCB and 1 goes back to June this year and not a word, apart from it might take several months to get an answer from the merchant. Around £480 in total.

SO don't rely on TCB
Quidco says the payout is expected in August!

the "cover 8" policy already includes plumbing and drainage
Ignore the Quidco/TCB Cashback from Homeserve.
I didn't get my TCB cashback yet from Homeserve. It's been 8 months. Raised this issue with TCB, who couldn't do much about it.

When do you receive the Argos card?
Nice find op worth a go I feel.
Got £2 a month cover with a free service last year.

They failed to turn up, or at least the third party company did, twice. They paid out £90/in compensation. In fairness , possibly the quickest, fairest resolution I've had with a company.
So how does this excess work? If i call them out for a leaking tap and they fix - i will get charged up to £50 regardless?
A warning home serve are appalling as other members have confirmed.Came out on a house insurance policy for a specific plumbing problem.guy said he would need to contact head office as it needed a plumber to sort it out , then charged 85 pounds for 5 mins of totally useless information. Of course it needed a plumber !!! .I advised Norwich Union that these cowboys are taking liberties. I had a 200 limit for repairs for which home serve used half telling me the obvious.luckily after complaints to N U they ignored the home serve charge and let me use a local plumber who took 15 mins to solve easy problem.
Very best of luck using home serve. !!!

I had exactly the same!

For the £2 a month I did get a repair which would have cost over £600 though!

Majority of Trustpilot reviews are good
I took this cover via quidco two years ago.

Cash back took 18 months to arrive after about a dozen chases. even then I was paid by quidco directly and they took up the fight for cash back with HS.

Cold from me

Suspect they've upped their game recently after the GARGANTUAN fine the FCA hit them with a couple of years ago ...
Cashback will not be paid if a free service is added to your order.. Cashback will not be paid in conjunction with any other offer, voucher or discount code unless listed on this page, or with any other discounts such as staff or student discounts
I'm still waiting for £100 from top cash 6 months ago chased it up but no go. Will be changing after the year is up
I have called them out many times.
My upstairs toilet pipe getting blocked all the time.
First few times they came and jetted it clear but it was happening every few weeks or so.
I got on the phone after third or fourth time and asked them to do a proper repair because it's the same problem every time.
They sent 2 vans and stuck a camera down the drain and found it had collapsed.
Dug up the garden and repaired it.
All was well for a bit then same problem. Called them again and they stuck the camera down again.
This time they found that when the drain collapsed a chunk of clay drain pipe had worked its way down the soil pipe.
He broke it up and flushed it through.
Been a year or so.. No problems.

All for 50p a month!.

I thought it would be rude of me not to renew.

Overall I am extremely pleased with their service.
If they had dropped the camera down on first or second visit it would saved a lot of hassle
