I also received a £30 cash back check for home insurance and their quote was actually cheaper than on price comparison websites so its worth checking before contacting them.
Not always, it's worth checking. I got a cashback deal through them when doing my mum's car insurance, I think it was £30 and also got £45 Quidco. The quote was almost identical to the one I received through GoCompare and the £30 cheque they sent made it cheaper.
Of course it isn't...... because the quote you get when you call them will be far higher than a quote they would give on a comparison site. Cashback deals on insurance is for mugs.
£55 off home insurance using code @ Swinton Insurance
UPDATE:- just got a new quote from sheilas wheels of £196.92 so £152 after cashback. Sheilas wheels wins :)
just got a quote for dual insurance and pretty decent price quoted of £181.41 after £55 Cashback so possibly £151 after TCB will see if Sheilas Wheels renewal next month can match that as they include free home emergency cover.
Unless you want to be pestered by them every week trying to sell you more products, would stay clear of them. Partner has insurance with them and they are always calling trying to push more sales.
£80 off car insurance using code @ Swinton Insurance
With you now but they still cannot ring you unless you allowed them to via tick boxes on your insurance policy. Just threaten them with the TPS if they call again and they never call back again in my experience.
We are registered with this service, but i think because they have our details from the insurance policy that they get away with it using their own database to call existing customers.
should register here and they wont be able to call anymore http://www.mpsonline.org.uk/tps/index.html
another cold call from swinton last night
I use them, not pestered by them every week but try a change of address update and wow, now thats expensive ! The new address is also lower risk area.
£80 discount off motor insurance using code @ Swinton Insurance
I got the email from Swinton the following day and cashback is showing as tracked in Quidco. Apologies for posting in the wrong section. Will take a little practice to get it right.
Hi robbsafc, many thanks for posting, i have moved it to the voucher section, as there is a discount code that requires inputting in order to get the cashback from Swinton. 8)
I just done this deal , thx op Anyone know , ?? how long does it take for them to email you the " £30 cashback claim form "
I did this with Swinton last year. I also renewed as a new customer this year to get both payments again, and so far both cashbacks are on track to pay. That's even after phoning to get them to credit my no claims to the policy. They were cheapest for me, but regardless 57 over a year is under a fiver a month!!
good point, and if need to , clear your history and cache !!
true but I am unable to edit on my phone, it does say so in post. and sorry if its misleading I did mt best
Esure group ( includes Sheila's Wheels & others) gave me good quotes of £180ish for comprehensive, compared with over £300 from others. I got £57.75 cashback from Esure instead of Top Cashback (its now £55.55 last I looked). That's because their website recognized the SP30 code, as a box came up repeating it but would not let me go to next page because it then said it did not recognize it!! Phoned Esure and they agreed to take the cashback off the premium! Much quicker than Top Cashback or Quidco. In fact I have to wait 5 months for the cashback on my home insurance from TC! Ridiculous!
so the cashback is from top cashback ? totally wrong title. plus this deal won't get much heat.
They have to by law, and I had no problem getting mine earlier this year when we changed to the RAC.
They will not give you proof of No Claims bonus if you move to another insurance company.

Extra cashback at swinton insurance (£75 instead of £40 for car insurance, and £50 for home insurance)
just had an email from swinton insurance ofering email subscribers extra cashback on their insurance.. so i thought i'd share it :) codes are: £75 cashback for car insurance : PMWT… Read more
obviously is subject to the individual, i had a really cheap bike quote from these guys once, and then a ridiculously expensive car quote.. I'm not endorsing swinton, i dont insure with them, just making the point that you wont find these codes on their website, they do offer a bit of cashback, but this is more on top :) might make a good deal for someone if they were looking to insure with them :)
Always get high quotes from these guys too guess that's why!
Hard to judge this one, but could help someone :)
As these were a whopping £300+ over Aviva for a recent car quote they need to raise the cash back a bit!

Free Breakdown Cover when I renewed my Insurance @ Swinton Insurance
Free breakdown cover - discovered this when I renewed my Insurance with my local branch. Sorry, free for 3 months & can chose any level of cover. After 3 months have to pay bu… Read more
I had car insurance with Swinton a couple of years ago. All they did was call me weekly trying to sell things. Told them not to but they didn't listen. Got rid of them after the insurance ran out!
I hope you shopped around for renewal quotes as they are notoriously higher than new customer premiums Mine was £180 for a year on renewal (up from £110) so rang the same firm as a new customer and got it for £87
Haha. Swinton, just had a renewal quote off them for £755 with a new insurer, as the one i've had for the last 5 years they don't deal with anymore, which at that price is a little over twice last years price. The guy said insurance has gone up around 40%, so where did his price get 100%!? I got EXACTLY the same "new" company with another broker for £371......Leaves me £384 to find myself some breakdown cover. Think I can manage that, lol.
Handy bonus if you were going to take out the insurance anyway, but fee breakdown cover will probably be the most basic cover and won't include homestart or recovery to destination of your choice. They'll try to sell you more cover after you take out your policy or you'll end up paying more if you need to use the free cover.
I agree but when its included in the price of a new car.......

Dirt cheap motorcycle insurance @ Swintons - £30 off and £15 Quidco
I did this deal and actually managed to be PAID for insuring my bike last year. Quidco tracked fine (it's £15 this year - £35 last year) and Swinton are doing their £30 cashback on… Read more
Just checked quidco and it says £27 for a new bike insurance policy - http://www.quidco.com/swinton-bike-insurance/?ac
I just insured my Honda Dominator 650 with Hastings. Full comp protected 3 yrs ncd £88 if it tracks cash back is £50 from cashbackkings making £38 per year :thumbsup:
It's a double cashback TCB/Quidco etc £15 plus Swintons cb and maybe 10% for new business online. Posted much last year £140 ish Bennetts full comp renewal down to £38 after cb and disc, even the same insurance co RSA.
Last time I dealt with them, they did not give me the cashback and even quoted the fact that I had gone through quidco when I phoned to ask where my cheque was.
Already done my quotes for renewal of car insurance next week and Swinton came out much cheaper than anywhere else for me. £40 cashback as well. I think you have to do a quote direct with Swinton through Quidco for the cashback so I hope the price comes out the same as it did with confused.com.

The link to Swinton via Quidco goes to a different home page which doesn't mention the £40 Swinton cashback. Swinton came out top for my wifes renewal recently on the comparison sites. As previous poster mentioned I cut out the comparison site and went direct claiming back Swintons £40, which I was satisfied with. I was thinking of trying the double whammy of trying to go thro' Quidco and claiming Swintons £40 but didn't want to run the risk of losing both. Was scared Quidco might not verify if you claim Swintons cashback offer.
when you make a quote , do another without the money voucher :thumbsup: mine was a cheaper quote. thats without money off voucher;-) tip most places will work it out different ,they have to fool you. still do it through quidco.
£2106 :shock: I'll stay with £600 from Privilege.
Why do that?. Surely a better way would be to go through a screenscraper, then goto the site directly and "Save" your quote. Most insurance sites have this facility. Then go back to the site via Quidco and retrieve the quote. That way you know you arent being ripped off.
quoted £1000 for a fiat punto?? no thanks... i'l stick with sub £300 at esure.
Hi all, Looked into this for you and the marketing team are still using the redemption form for the bike policies so Wellfan you should have received one. They have advised that customers not receiving it is usually down to anti spam filters blocking the email. If you don't receive it and it's not in your junk folder, just email [EMAIL="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL] and they'll sort you out another one. Hope this helps, if not, let me know.
Just to reassure people, my cashback email came through ten minutes ago.
Not likely. I pick it up Sunday :)
My £30 cashback e-mail took 24 hours by e-mail, Quidco tracked as well at £35
Thanks for that. However, how am I to know that my cashback claim is valid unless I receive the e-mail confirmation that Swinton has accepted my cashback claim? As the cashback is not sent until 90 days of the policy has passed, and if you do not receive it, it will then be a bit too late to chase it up. I would actually prefer to receive some formal notification that my claim is valid. Although I got a good deal with Swinton, I could have got better via Quidco with Bennett's, so will be a bit peed off if Swinton cashback does not come through. PS Thanks again for your helpful reply. Would be good to get an update from you tomorrow. This policy is for a bike that is possibly never going to move from my garage where it has been sitting for past 3 years (health problems). I just want to maintain my 'no claims' history (as cheaply as possible) for the day I return to biking. I believe to maintain your NCB you have to have a policy valid within past 2 years, and no more than 2 years. My last policy expired in 2007.

You confuse the issue... some councils etc do clear blockages for free...regardless of who owns them - most don't now.... but it may be because the "drain" you refer to is actually a Public sewer, or has been adopted (as might happen for a new housing development) as these are "owned" by the Water Authority, and not your property anyway! The opposite happens often too... you think it is theirs, but its yours - you can end up with SUBSTANTIAL runs of what you THINK is public property. This can and often is under a public road... the road doesn't mean it isn't still your responsibility,even though you can't legally do any work on it! It comes as quite a shock when you get the bill for a collapse to be repaired, especially when it is 25 feet down and 100 yards long, and the work takes 3 weeks for a team of 5 men and a JCB! Drainage law is a MINEFIELD, not at all obvious in many situations, and far beyond the discussion here - but if I had a Pound for every houseowner who thought he had nothing to do but get the council/water authority to "come & fix the drain" then I could certainly have a good time on the strength of it!
We had Yorkshire Water out the other day to unblock our drains for free.Used to be done for around £35 through our local council.well impressed.
Its not free, you have to pay a monthly fee
barclays additions customers get this level of cover for free
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]"each claim having cap of £750" That doesn't come close to covering a good number of drain/private sewer problems! I don't know what the BG cover limit is, I only have the 200 level (heating) cover, but this is what you are probably paying so much for with the 400 level cover, mine is only £15.20 a month, ie 180 quid a year. The good news is, the Government want the Water Authorities to take over legal responsibilities for them - but the bad news is, the Water Authorities are resisting hard, because it will cost them a fortune! see:: [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]http://www.nce.co.uk/water/news/2008/12/200000km_of_drains_to_come_under_water_company_control.html I am not so sure it is as clear cut and defined as in that article, but things are moving at least![/SIZE][/FONT]
