Details of Quidco's Highest Cashback Guarantee here quidco.com/hig…tee

Terms & Conditions
  • An eligible purchase must first be made via Quidco before the Highest Cashback Guarantee is applied
  • The higher cashback rate must be identified within 72 hours of the member’s original purchase.
  • The higher cashback rate must originate from a UK cashback website. The Highest Cashback Guarantee is not applicable to cashback offered by product manufacturers (e.g. Canon) themselves.
  • The higher cashback rate must be listed on an alternate UK cashback website and be available to the greater public.
  • Proof of the higher cashback rate must be provided in the form of a URL which directs to the appropriate page on alternate UK cashback website.
  • The Highest Cashback Guarantee does not apply to offers made available by discount clubs/loyalty programmes whereby the user has to pay a monthly subscription fee to be a member, or benefits programmes that are only available to members of a certain criteria – e.g. employee benefit programmes.
  • The Highest Cashback Guarantee will only be applied to purchases made at retailers listed on Quidco.
  • The Highest Cashback Guarantee will not be applied to insurance and broadband purchases made through Quidco Compare.
  • Quidco reserves the right to reject claims if suitable proof cannot be supplied that a higher cashback rate was advertised on an alternate UK cashback website within the specified timeframe and according to our T&Cs.
  • Any increases will only be applied to the advertised rates and will not include "Top-Up" or "Bonus cashback" increases available on other UK cashback sites.
  • Quidco will double the difference of the cashback rate offered by a rival UK cashback site (for example if a rate of 8% is advertised by a retailer on Quidco and 10% is offered elsewhere by that same retailer with the same stipulations, Quidco will increase the cashback by 4%, thereby upping the total cashback rate to 12%)
  • Quidco’s ‘double the difference’ Highest Cashback Guarantee will be applied to all retailers aside from those in the following categories: travel, utilities, finance, insurance, telecoms, subscription services, gambling, bingo, casino, poker and sportsbook.
  • In the aforementioned categories a maximum 10% top up will be applied to retailer rates. In these cases we will beat the advertised cashback rate on a rival UK cashback site by 10% (for example, 10% will be increased to 11%)
  • A fair usage policy operates with regards to the maximum claim value and number of claims submitted by a member. Should a member exceed the fair usage policy, Quidco reserves the right not to apply the Highest Cashback Guarantee to those claims.
  • All information on the page correct as of November 23 2016 - 17:15

For those who don't like Quidco, TCB have a similar cashback guarantee - details here: topcashback.co.uk/Hel…/76

Other great offers may also be out there but I use this method through Quidco regularly as well as taking advantage of Quidco's bonus cashback.

Quidco highest cashback guarantee takes months to even start processing.
I can't even get Quidco to apply cashback to some retailers, even when I appeal and outline with great clarity all the info on the original transaction.

If your doing this, it can't reasonably be something you could do with anything other than a the glass is 1% full mindset, when your talking about 39% amounts.

There will be small print somewhere, or Quidco will wiggle out of it with some random reason.

No harm in trying it though I guess.

I've never used their guarantee as I find TCB tracks more reliably, but looking at the T&C's they will beat another rate only by a maximum of 10% so the best you could get, if indeed you get it, is 30%
I had an email today off quidco £2.50 bonus purchase over £5 ends Saturday 23:59 this is my 3rd cashback in 3 days

Quidco haven't updated their Highest Cashback Guarantee T&Cs for almost a year!!!
Same goes for lego.com - 20% cashback on tcb and 3% on quidco. I always use Highest Cashback Guarantee and it works for me.

I thought the 10% limit only applied to certain retailers as detailed here:

  • Quidco’s ‘double the difference’ Highest Cashback Guarantee will be applied to all retailers aside from those in the following categories: travel, utilities, finance, insurance, telecoms, subscription services, gambling, bingo, casino, poker and sportsbook.

Would this work in conjunction with the £2.50 off bonus quidco is running til midnight tonight, or is there some small print that I can't see?? Thanks for the heads up OP I never knew about this!

Edit - also lego at TrUs comes with free gifts over a certain spend, is that likely to affect cashback (e.g. toys r us refusing it on that basis?)

Two companies that probably won't be around for very long.

Hell of a gamble dropping down from 39% to 3% if quidco decide to be arsey about it.

Look at it the other way - if buying something anyhow, a straight choice of 21% at TCB or gamble 18% to gain 36% (seems a reasonable gamble to me).

What is far from fair IMHO is any policy that is not spelt out clearly; I would love to see this challenged under unfair terms legislation:

  • A fair usage policy operates with regards to the maximum claim value and number of claims submitted by a member. Should a member exceed the fair usage policy, Quidco reserves the right not to apply the Highest Cashback Guarantee to those claims.

So making 1 claim (such as a high value one as suggested here) or making 2 or 3 could fall foul of this 'fair' usage policy.

To my mind, without stating the limits (i.e. £x or y claims in z months) basically makes that clause effectively read that Quidco can refuse any claim it likes.
The question is, did anyone do this and were they successful? I tried it, but typically mine didnt track until after the 72hour deadline to make the claim. Ive asked quidco to see what happens in this instance as obviously i couldn't speed up the tracking speed to keep it within their 72hour window.

Mine tracked fine and so did my £2.50 bonus:

Status update 18 November
Purchase ID: xxxxxxxxx7

We're currently awaiting confirmation from the retailer that you have not returned or cancelled your order.

We estimate your Cashback will be available by 18 February

However: my understanding is that until the CB is confirmed they won't look at the 'highest rate' promise? The other thing to note is that the Topcashback 20% rate ended on the same day I put my claim in. So I wonder if they'll honour it by the time the look at it. I took a screenshot but my experience with Quidco is they often won't enter into any discussion even if the're in the wrong.

Ah ok, thanks for that. I also have a screen shot, email from topcashback showing the rate and a link to this forum where the rate was discussed along with my invoice which shows the purchase date - so i have plenty evidence, just depends how much quidco want to hide behind the '72hours rule' which wasn't possible for me to adhere to since it didnt appear in my account until a few days ago.

Ive had similar issues with topcashback not willing to discuss issues, just copy/paste of some irrelevant comments, I no longer use TCB on the back of that. If quidco do the same, then ill be using imutual exclusively.
