Our policy is to leave the forums open to whatever cashback/points scheme people want to use.

It could just be added to the options along with others though, so when you are posting a deal there's an additional Q that says 'Cashback?' then a list of all the big cashback sites, quidco, pigsback (or whatever it's called), other, other, other and you check all that you know it can be used with.

They still would be open to whatever cashback site they want to use.
Just pointing out that I and I'm sure many have "forgotten" to go thru the cashback site. If when posting deals there is a checkbox that could add "Cashback available" or similar, then folks would be reminded by an icon/logo.

I was just using Quidco as an example.

MrTT

maybe when posting a deal there could be tick boxes and u tick 1's that apply then it adds the relevent pics at bottom of page e.g

YOU CAN USE CASH BACK SITES WITH THIS OFFER:
[QUIDCO SYMBOL][PigsBAck SYMBOL]

You get the drift

I don't know about you guys but I was so fed up at forgetting about Quidco that I decided to change all the bookmarks I have for online retailers to their Quidco links... That way I get cashback even if I forget to go to Quidco first...

any more thoughts from Moderators ?

I haven't commented as I think admin's said it all above, albeit in one sentence

hit me over the head with a rusty pan if you like...

... I for one am not really bothered by quidco or any other cashback scheme... so for me it would be another thing to load on page with little importance (to me).. but i can understand how it could help others.

a small pic wouldnt take more that 1 second to load on any connection lol

Admin should consider it,

would make posting deals much easyier..!!!

and could always have a page to request more cash back sites to be added

btw i dont mean link to qidco
i mean just use a tiny pic to show u can use quidco pigsback ect.

Problem with quidco and the like, is folks feel it to be a guarantee, a right to get the money back. From what i see, all mine have been tracked, and so far paid, eventually (thank you Pru) but that's not always the case. Quidco doesn't always pay, for various reasons, and if deals are gonna be decided on price and value, with quidco or similar as the deciding factor, i'd be careful cos like i, and quidco site says, it's not a guarantee.

That's why it's not a good idea to have it embedded in deal posts, only suggested. If companies don't pay the cashback sites on our click throughs to them, they can't or won't always pay up.

If I am correct then quidco is also 'owned' by the admin?

Then how about a 'goto deal via quidco' button if the dealee will do quidco?

I'm new to this side of things and have missed out on a lot of quidco thanks to forgetting it!

hmmm

Thinking about it - it would have to forward to the quidco site for you to signin... this could then catch anyone that hasn't signed up for quidco... and result in a bigger community maybe?

Just an idea!

Merged with same topic.

megamoo

It's like free money if you shop online. I think if you shop online it's sensible to use some cashback scheme or another!

Anyway... Admin's said it all.

And QuidCo is totally separate from HotUKDeals.

doh! - thanks for the merge/reply
