      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good cashback site for me but not if you're relying on daily clicks

      I'm a member of several cashback sites, one of which is Quanti. In terms of cashback, I only really buy music downloads online so I use Quanti for this and predominantly for daily clicks. When I started using the site in August, there were several daily clicks available but now there is only PriceDigger (at 4p per click) and Kelkoo (which stopped tracking for me in October, so I don't use this one). I've also used it for a few non-spend registration offers so it's a bit of a mixed bag for my transactions.

      ***Tracking***
      I've had a couple of issues with tracking on Quanti. Firstly, I've gone over the daily quota on PriceDigger daily clicks despite only having clicked three times through this particular site. I can only assume that it sometimes tracks my PriceDigger clicks on other cashback sites in addition to the ones that have actually been clicked through on Quanti. This doesn't happen every time, and any excess clicks are cancelled (but not removed from the transactions list) within a day or two of statements being updated. Secondly, as I've briefly hinted at already, Kelkoo daily clicks suddenly stopped tracking for me but this doesn't seem to have been the case with other members if the forums are anything to go by. I did nothing to change my daily clicks routine so I'm not sure why this is the case. In addition, not all of my PriceDigger daily clicks have succesfully tracked. From the maximum of three per day, I sometimes find that one or even two don't track properly.

      Aside from these relatively minor tracking niggles, the vast majority of my transactions (daily clicks, no-spend offers and iTunes purchases) have tracked successfully and without me having to contact support.

      ***Confirmations***
      For daily clicks, transactions move from Pending to Confirmed within one to two months on average. For most of my cashback and no-spend purchases, the confirmation stage is passed by and the earnings won't move from Pending until the money is awarded. This can take up to three months as I'm still waiting for no-spend offers and iTunes cashback to be awarded from September.

      ***Payments***
      I started using Quanti in late August and cashed out my first payment this week. Quanti is one of the cashback sites that take an admin fee from each year's earnings. This amounts to £3, and as you can only cash out when you've notched up £10 in awarded earnings, you'll need to have £13 awarded before you can cash out for the first time. After that, you'll 'only' need £10 to have been awarded. As of right now, I've cashed out £11.13 (with the £3 admin fee on top of that so basically £14.13) and have around £9 in pending and confirmed (but not yet awarded) earnings. The majority of these earnings were taken from daily clicks with around £5 in no-spend and cashback transactions. I don't expect to earn at the same rate as this any more as most of the daily clicks have been removed now due to the networks not paying up, and the more lucrative Offerad (which used to amount to 20p per day on each cashback site) has long since disappeared. Now, the maximum daily clicks are much less at around 14p per day in total if everything tracks successfully so you'll need to be using the site for cashback and no-spend offers to really build up a good balance now. If it wasn't for the hourly competition, I'm not sure if I'd keep my account once I'm fully paid up as I don't use it much for cashback really.

      The current payment options are BACS bank transfer (which I'm going to use to request my second payout), Paypal (which I used to request my first payout as I'd forgot that I'd chosen that as my default payment method and couldn't seem to change the payment method after my payment request had automatically processed as Paypal) and cheque. If you choose the cheque option, you'll have an additional £1 deducted from your earnings to cover handling charges so you'll need to have £11 cleared in your account if you want to cash out £10, or £14 if you're cashing out for the first time that year and haven't yet paid the admin fee and still want to cash out £10.

      ***Other earning opportunities***
      There is the Daily Randomiser competition, in which a forum member's forum handle is picked at random at the start of every hour. If you are called up, you're eligible to claim the amount that is attached to this, which could be anything from 25p to around £5 or maybe even more. The catch is that you have to be around to claim the amount (by clicking the claim button next to the announcement) so it's a bit of a bummer if you're called up in the early hours of the morning and you're not around to claim. I make a point of logging in at the very start of each hour that I'm on the computer to see if I'm called up. So far, I'm won a total of £2.50 but I'm sure that I've missed other opportunities to claim during the night. Once you've claimed the amount, it's automatically added to your account so you don't have to wait for anything to be validated.

      On the forum, members will post money off voucher codes so it's worth checking this on a regular basis to see if any of the offers interest you.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Another cashback site to add to your list

      One of the many cashback sites that are out there at the moment. I joined this one after being tempted by other Moneysavingexpert.com members chatting about the forum competitions they have there. I do daily clicks when I can be bothered to be honest as they are very time consuming adn thought the competition would be a great way to boost my account.
      I'll talk about the forum comp in a moment but for now the main aim of the site is cashback.

      Cashback
      First of all you need to register with the site which takes a few minutes and you are asked a few questions. Onvce registered you are free to search the site for the company you would like to buy from and then click through from the 'visit retailer' button. You then need to purchase your item with the company from that click through or your order will not track.
      Once you have gone through the transaction you then wait for your order to be tracked on quanti, this can take anything from a an hour to a couple of days sometimes. If your order does not track you can put in an enquiry and hopefully the team can sort it out for you.
      Quanti is a 100% cashback site but there is a yearly £3 fee which is taken out when you first withdraw. You need to have at least £10 to withdraw. This can be sent to your bank via BACS or paypal or amazon vouchers. Cheques can be done but you have to pay an admin fee of £1.
      You can withdraw your funds whenever you like, its not like quidco where you have to wait for the end of the month to be paid. It usually takes about 48 hours to get to your bank which is really good.
      Another way to earn is to refer people but i think the referal payment is pitiful at only £1 per person you refer.

      Forum Competitions
      This is what drew me to this site in the first place and I must say I did pretty well out of it. Now don't get all excited as there is now only one competition which is the hourly randomiser. You get a certain amount of entries for certain things. 1 entry for registering, 1 entry for posting on the forum three times adn one entry per transactions you do up to 3. There is a banner above the forum which tells you how many entries you have so you wont get confused. You can have up to 6 entries into the hourly randomiser, this is to make you do more on the forum in the hope that your name will be called.
      So the hourly randomiser then calls a name out each hour with an amount you could win if you claim it in the hour. You can see that you have more chances of your name being called out with the more entries that you have (although this has been an argument that actually the regulars don't get called out as much as the normal one entry people anyway and is it worth it.) The amount to win also depends on your entries, if you only have one entry you will only be able to win 25p. Not a lot is it and really not worth you having to check every hour to see if your name has been called. If you have more than one entry you can win a random amount up to £2.
      There was another competition which was similar to bingo where you chose 7 numbers and if you got 4 or 5 numbers out of the 10 called you won a share of the £4 daily pot. This was a great winner for most of the regulars and where I made most of my money but unfortunately they have stopped this competition and I have to say this then saw a few regulars (me included) to reduce their time on the site. After all we are all there to make extra money and not always on transactions.

      Forum
      A few of the members post deals on the forum which quanti have cashback on (and some with none) and if a general member of the public click through there post to a site and quanti get commision off that sale they share that revenue with the original poster (ie if the clicker is not a member of quanti and not claiming the cashback themselves)

      Summary.
      A great cashback site but no different from any other now really. There maybe a few shops that they have a higher percentage cashback so I would always suggest shopping around the cashback sites you are on before you click through and purchase.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Check it out!

        Of all the cashback sites now out there, Quanti has been the most recent addition to my 'collection'. Quanti caught my eye as being a site with some rather novel and unique ideas, which I will describe to you in more detail.

        #~~~ CASHBACK AS % ~~~#

        Quanti does the standard cashback site thing, which is to offer a percentage of whatever money you spent on a product back to you, as long as you're logged in and you click through to the merchant using the Quanti links, so that you can be tracked. There are some pretty good deals on at the time of writing, including a massive 15% cashback at BeCheeky, up to 50% on Ebay (of the revenue Ebay earns, not the selling price), 10% at Listen2Online, 8% at Very, etc.

        In my fairly limited experience so far with this site, I've found that the tracking works very well and is one of the best cashback sites at being regularly updated so that you're not waiting for weeks to see if you've got the cashback.

        I've also noticed that regular front page updates appear to alert you to the newest and best cashback deals. It's just a pity that I'm on a strict 'diet' at the moment as far as buying online goes, until I get the house sold! After that, watch out cashback sites... :)

        Quanti do levy a very reasonable and small £3 per year admin fee, but they will only deduct that from what you earn after you've earned it, so if you earn nothing, you pay nothing. They also pay you anytime you want after you've earned £10 which is quite a lot lower than some other sites - and they will pay out very quickly too.

        In my own opinion I don't really think the withdrawal threshold, as it's called, is a big deal, even on the sites which need you to get to £25 - after all the whole idea with these cashback sites is to build up money through transactions or clicks, and even £25 can soon be reached. But it is nice to know that Quanti only require you to reach £10. As I'm now over that amount I shall be putting my claim in shortly.

        #~~~ CASHBACK IN £ ~~~#

        Secondly, there are a multitude of deals which will offer you a fixed sum of money if you sign up, register to or get a quote from a new site, examples including various Bingo and Gambling sites, insurance sites, domain name sites, etc. These are obviously useful only the once, but it can add up to a quite significant sum of money if you were to take advantage of all the offers.

        One thing I have found from taking advantage of a few of these types of deals is that it's very easy to miss a tick-box somewhere on these sites which you tick to prevent junk email. Therefore my inbox is rapidly acquiring vast numbers of spam messages, most of which fortunately are dealt with automatically by the filter. This is not Quanti's fault, I should add, but rather the types of sites which offer you money to join up.

        There is also a limit to how much of this you can do - I know from experience already that unless you have lots of email and postal addresses (unlikely!) then you will be limited to just one 'new registration' on most websites.

        #~~~ RANDOM DRAW COMPETITION ~~~#

        What really makes Quanti unique at the time of writing is that they have a daily, in fact, hourly, randomiser which pulls a forum user's name 'out of the hat' each and every hour of the day, with a random amount of money between 50p and £3 being allocated. If you manage to see your name during that hour then you can claim the prize instantly, if you miss it then you just have to wait until the next time.

        Now so far my name has been drawn four times in three weeks, once was at 3 a.m so I missed it, the others in the day time which I happily claimed. Because it is random there is no predicting when it might happen, and is all part of the fun. Obviously the more people that join the site the less frequently any individual's name will appear (oh dear, should I have posted this review? ;) ), but the Site's Administrator has said he will modify the competition as necessary.

        This prize draw generates a lot of forum posts as people log in every morning to find out what they've missed during the night. And thanks to one or two helpful night shift workers who post hourly updates, it's easy to find out.

        I now know that if you do win one of the various amounts possible and claim your prize successfully, the amount won is added to your Quanti account instantly, which is such a pleasant change from the ever-present 'pending' notices which seem to plague many cashback sites.

        #~~~ FORUM NUMBERS COMPETITION ~~~#

        Another nice competition on this site is the daily number draw. What you have to do is (the day before) pick 7 numbers between 0 and 30, two of which are based on your forum posts and are only changeable if you post messages. At 10 a.m the draw is made, and 5 numbers or more matched gets you a share in the £4 prize, or 4 numbers if you've posted at least one deal during the previous day.

        I thought this was an ingenious device to get people to post in the forum and to get people to post deals or codes they've found. It seems to have worked well and if you look at the Quanti forums they are a hive of activity, with a lot of good deals (discounts from various internet sellers, voucher codes, freebies etc.) being posted by users. The only problem I sometimes have is finding deals that haven't already been posted by some of the very frequent posters!

        I was very lucky with this competition in my first weeks at Quanti, but more recently I just can't pick the right numbers! Luck of the draw, entirely.

        If you DO have a unlucky week as my last week was, there is a consolation prize awarded, based on the maximum winning prize awarded, and with a pot of £10 to share between non-winners. To be eligible you have to have posted at least 5 deals or codes during the week too - which I had and therefore won a very welcome £4 prize for not winning!

        #~~~ MARKETPLACE ~~~#

        Quanti also offers a price comparison service which is fantastic as it shows you which would be the best merchant to use for cashback for the product you want, as well as the price and delivery cost. This alone is a feature that a lot more cashback sites could well do with using.
        I used it a couple of times to compare prices on TomTom Sat Nav devices as mine is starting to get long in the tooth, and it works well. The biggest problem is deciding which model to get, something which reviews such as you find here at Dooyoo can help with.

        #~~~ SUMMARY ~~~#

        While at face value this cashback site might look like any other, delve a bit deeper and you'll soon find that it's actually very innovative and shows a lot of the others up. I'm certainly using this one daily now and would highly recommend it.
        The other big selling point of Quanti is that the Site Admins respond very quickly (often within minutes) to any requests or messages sent to them. Pretty unusual I have to say.

          Disadvantages

          A good cashback site with great rates

          I joined Quanti in July 2008 and have just claimed my first payout from them so now feel it is a good time to review this site.

          I first joined Quanti as at the time it was offering cashback for Amazon at a very good rate of 4% and eventually this rate went up to 6% and you could even use your gift vouchers and still earn cashback from the site too, so free purchases with cashback, what more could you want?

          Unfortunately Amazon has withdrawn itself from all cashback sites apart from Nectar but Quanti still has a lot of good rates to keep me with them, I recently brought some items from New Look and earned 9% cashback from them, you can 6.5% from clothes on Play.com, 4% from Boots and 3% from Comet to name just a few of the sites you can earn cashback from.

          Quanti states that it has over 500 shops from you to choose from so your bound to be able to use them for some of your purchases.

          Quanti also lists money off codes for various shops, some recent offers include 10% off at Burtons and 5% off hair stylers/trimmers at Dixons.

          One of the best things about the site is the daily Kelkoo click, you earn 10p for doing this and its credited to your account the next day so its brilliant if you say have £19.50 in your account, 5 days worth of clicks and you can withdraw your earnings!

          You can also earn £1 for each referral that joins and makes £2! Which is pretty easy to do on the site so that £1 should come to you quickly!

          The site does charge £3 admin fee per year though but with the kelkoo clicks and great rates on some sites I don't think this is unfair, its cheaper than the £5 at Quidco anyway although there are free sites out there.

          This fee is taken from your first payout.

          Once you have earnt your first £20 you can withdraw your money by cheque, BACS or paypal.

          I picked BACS as no fees and no trips to the bank to cash a cheque in.

          I was very pleased with the speed in which I got my cash, I requested payout on 19th February and it was processed 22nd Feb and in my bank on 25th where its now sitting in my ISA but it was less than a week and the status of the payout was updated and I got an email saying it was being processed.

          I would recommend Quanti to anyone who loves to shop online and get some cashback at a good rate.

            Get a little extra back when you shop online!

            I have to say that I absolutely love the idea of internet shopping. I can visit all my favourite high street shops in the comfort of my home - and I can shop while my two young daughters are sleeping upstairs. The best thing about internet shopping is that in most cases you can also gain some cashback through going through one of the numerous cashback sites that are out there and thus making your shopping a little less expensive too.

            I do think that good cashback sites are becoming much harder to find though which is why my ears pricked up when someone told me about Quanti. I joined a few months ago and as I have just received my first payment from them I now feel qualified to write about the site.

            You can sign up at

            www.quanti.co.uk

            and the whole registration process is very easy. You will discover that there is a £3 service charge but this will not be deducted until you claim your first payment. This might sound like a bit of a negative (as many cashback sites do not charge this) but the cashback offered is generally higher than most other sites. In fact they offer 100% cashback which means that they pass on all of the commission they receive.

            If you've never used a cashback site before, I'll just explain briefly how it works. Instead of going directly to the online shop, log into your cashback site first (in this case Quanti) and then click on the link that takes you to the shop that you want to visit. It's exactly the same site and you pay exactly the same prices - the only difference is that you are earning cashback!

            I did originally sign up to quanti because they were offering an enormous 6% cashback when shopping at Amazon but sadly at the moment it seems that Amazon has stopped working with any cashback site. However, I have also used the site for shopping at many other of my favourite shops and have received 5% cashback at Marks and Spencer, 4% at Boots, 5% at Waterstones, 7% at Borders and 7% at WHSmith. So, as you can see, it's definitely worth your while going through Quanti to visit the internet shops. Most transactions show up on your account in a matter of days although they do take a couple of months to be confirmed. This is a bit of a pain as you can't claim the money until it is confirmed but it is in line with most cashback sites.

            I did once have a problem with one purchase tracking but I contacted the site and they did eventually sort it out. They also kept me informed of what was happening too which I really appreciated.

            Like most sites there are some daily clicks but only two. However, they are much better than any where else. The first daily click is Kelkoo and for visiting this site and clicking on an item you receive 10 pence per day. In daily click terms this is quite unheard of as most daily clicks on other sites have gone down and down and most are only worth a miserable one or two pence these days. Also the payment for this shows up and is confirmed within twenty four hours so that is very good. The site has just introduced carsource as another daily click with this one paying four pence a go which is still really good. The tracking of this one does not seem so good though.

            There are lots of other very good deals though particularly on insurance. At the moment if you swap to a number of home or car insurance providers you can earn up to £50 cashback which is just money for nothing. You can also get £10 cashback for signing up to a LloydsTSB credit card. It always seems to me that if you are after any financial product it's worth taking a look at Quanti first.

            THhre are so many different categories where you can earn money so what ever you are doing on line you can use this site. Especially take a look at the easy cash and freebies section because here you can earn just by signing up to various different sites.

            You can get paid when you reach £20 either through BACS, cheque or PayPal. I have just been paid by BACS and the transaction went through in just a few days. You have to remember though that your first payment will be £3 less than expected because of the service charge.

            They have quite a substantial help section that answers many questions that you might have. There is also a blog giving all the latest news and also an area where you can share discount codes and such like.

            It is also possible to earn through referrals. They don't offer a great amount but you will get £1 for every referral that earns £2. Needless to say that if you are interested in joining up and would be happy to be referred by me I would appreciate it - just send me a message!

            Overall I think it's a well laid out and reliable site. Payment is prompt and the rewards are generous. It's definitely worth taking a look!

              worrth having a look at

              quanti.co.uk is one of the best cashback sites that i have tried( and i have been trying out quite a few!).they seem to cover everything you need from health foods to insurance and you get a good cashback rate from any money you spend with their merchants.i am especially pleased that they offer a good cashback rate with amazon, at the moment they are paying 6%, this is great as many other cashback sites will not bother with amazon .
              the cashback rates with quanti are often higher than other cashback sites and they show you a detailed up to date statement every time you login so you can keep track of your earnings.you do however have to earn at least twenty pound before you can claim your money and they do have a yearly charge of three pound.
              they have a few freebies for you to have a go on ,at the moment kelkoo is paying 10p, win4now 5p and carsource 4p.the competition page has plenty to keep you occupied with several competitions for you to in participate in with a chance to win and you get good cashback when you register with these for the first time
              so overall i think quanti.co.uk is well woth having a look at.

                Join if you use amazon

                I realise I only joined Quanti a few days ago but I am very pleased already! I joined totally because of the excellent reviews from dooyoo.

                There were two main reasons why I joined, the first was the amazon cashback availible, at 6% that is the highest on any cashback site I know of. (I actually havent seen amazon on any other site i am on to be honest). The other reason was the elusive daily click for kelkoo. On any other site kelkoo is only 1-2p!

                Normally I only use cashback sites to do daily clicks but I do a lot of shopping on amazon so im going to use this site for all my shopping from now on.

                It was very easy to join on their website www.quanti.co.uk filling in a fewbasic details and then I had to activate my account from an email sent to the email account I signed up with.

                Before you even sign in to the site you can see all the latest news on the site on their home page, most of it seems to be new shops added to their cashback database, there are four new shops added this month so far. It also lists the 6% cashback rate at amazon here and it seems that this was started in august, previously it had been 5.5% so I only hope it keeps going up!

                After you sign in, on the right hand site of the page you can the totals you havent earned broken up into pending status, confirmed status and awarded status. What I am very excited about is that even though ive been in the site only three days the kelkoo clicks ive done have all been awarded to me. If I compare this with the site topcashback they only put kelkoo clicks into pending status in this time. If you click the "details" button underneath this you can see your earnings in more detail, an aggregated view or a detailed view. The aggregated view shows the total from each retailer over the month and the detailed view shows all earnings per day.

                To find the cashback shops you click the "cashback" tab at the top of the main page and this will take you to a "merchant list". Initally all of the sites you can get cashback on are listed but you can use the menu on the left hand side to search through them by catagory. Helpfully amazon is top of the list here.

                You will find the 10p kelkoo link in the "easy cash and freebies" section. As well this daily there are a few sites you can sign up to for free fairexchange, consumer lifestyles, email inform and mobyko offer 50-95p for signing up to their services.

                One thing im not so thrilled about is the 3 pound annual fee, but I guess its better than the 5 pound 5 offered by a few of the other sites that offer higher rates of cashback.

                Also the payout point is quite high at 20 pounds but hopefully with the money ill get back from amazon and the 10p a day I will be able to get to this soon. Then I will be able to get a cheque or the money paid into paypal.

                The referal scheme on this site seems to work only with cashback sites and not with the free offers, so if you refer someone they have to use the site for shopping. If they do this though you will receive 1 pound.

                I will be persisting with this site for my 10p a day and also I have a lot of things to buy on amazon soon so im really hopeful that I will reach the cashout point soon.

                  Disadvantages

                  A recommended site-go join!

                  Quanti.co.uk is a cashback site-one of those lovely places that enables you to actually earn money back on what you spend-sounds to good to be true? nope! All they charge is a £3 annual fee(taken from your earnings) and thats it.
                  There are a wide range of retailers you can earn cashback on including Amazon-get back a whopping 6% of everything you spend simply by clicking through to Amazon via Quanti. Currys,Play.com and Toys r us are also there. I'm not going to list all the retailers or we will be here a long time but check it out for yourselves!
                  Credit cards and car insurance are other things you can earn a large amount of cashback on-I recieved £25 for a accepted hsbc credit card application.
                  There is also a section for deals and codes-featuring special offers and codes for things like free delivery from certain retailers.
                  Also there is a 'daily click' simply click through from Quanti to Kelkoo and on to a retailer and you recieve 10p,not a lot- but do it daily and it soon mounts up.
                  The customer service is brilliant, i had a problem with a transaction not tracking, i emailed them and they got back to me in the hour, a few emails back and forth and it was all sorted in a friendly and professonal manner. I must say it is better than Quidcos system of raising a ticket which can take months.
                  All in all a great site and one i recommend.

                    Disadvantages

                    A great site with excellent cashback rates and a decent payout for daily clickers!

                    www.quanti.co.uk is a cashback site run along a similar model to Quidco and other 100% cashback sites. For those people that aren't familiar with the concept of cashback sites, they work by offering you cashback on any shopping that you do via their site. Basically, once you have signed up to the site, you click through to the site you want to purchase from and buy your products as normal. The sale is then logged or 'tracked' by Quanti and the cashback is credited to your account once it is validated and paid out by the retailer.

                    If this sounds too good to be true, believe me it isn't! Cashback sites make their money using affiliate networks (like TradeDoubler). Essentially, websites pay other sites a rate of commission for sending buyers on to their site and cashback sites pass this commission on to you. Quanti pay the whole of that commission back, rather than taking a cut of every transaction, which is what some other cashback sites (without annual fees) do.

                    For those of you that are already familiar with the concept of 100% cashback sites, you might well wonder what sets Quanti apart from the many others that are currently around. The main advantage is that the annual fee is only £3. Other sites like Quidco and Wepromiseto all offer 100% cashback rates (like Quanti) but deduct £5 from your first cashback earnings every year. You save £2 a year by using Quanti for your online shopping instead of its competitors!

                    Quanti also offer a referral scheme (unlike Quidco) where you can earn £1 for every member that you refer who goes on to earn at least £2 in cashback.

                    Talking of daily clicks - most regular cashback site users will be aware that you can clock up a few extra pennies every day by searching for items using 'shopbots' like Kelkoo. Here, Quanti has a few to choose from although they are only a few pence per click which does add up.
                    Quanti does have a number of 'no-purchase' offers to boost your cashback rate towards the payout minimum of £10. The payout level at Quanti is possibly the biggest drawback for me, although it should be quite easy to reach if you use it for most of your cashback shopping.

                    I have received three payments now which were all quick, painless and paid straight into my bank account by BACCS. You can request a payment at any time of the month, rather than having to wait for a particular pay run. This is a real advantage as anybody who has waited patiently for the end of the month for a Quidco payout will appreciate!

                    Tracking wise, all of my transactions to date have tracked successfully and I haven't needed to submit any queries for missed transactions to date (touch wood!) so can't comment on their customer service as yet.

                    The site has a forum listing discount codes and special offers which can be used in addition to the cashback. This is a nice touch and means that you might be able to save even more money as well as making a bit of a community between the members. The site also frequently runs forum competitions which have helped to boost my cashback. There is currently an hourly random draw where a foum member's name is drawn out and they are awarded a small sum of money into their Quanti account.

                    All in all, I see this site as a worthy rival to similar cashback schemes with lots of unique selling points to make it worthwhile joining. Anybody interested can sign up directly at www.quanti.co.uk or via my referral link if you send me a message.

                    Happy cashback shopping everybody!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Good reliable cashback site to save you money on your online shopping!

                      Quanti is an internet cashback site that gives you very high cashback rates on your online shopping. I use it for anything from grocery shopping, clothes shopping and electricals to insurance and travel - it's amazing how many high street companies are part of this scheme and are willing to pay commission when you shop online. Amounts vary from 2-3% in electrical shops like Currys or Comet to £70 on home insurance. And what Quanti does, unlike some other sites, is passes on all of this commission to its users.

                      There are quite a few cashback sites out there that attract people to join them by giving them £5 bonus for joining but when you look carefully you will see they make their money back by paying you only half of the commission they receive from the retailers for your shopping and keep the rest for themselves. Good business for them isn't it?

                      As an example I recently bought a house which obviously is a good way to spend all your savings :) However, with Quanti I managed to get some of this savings back and here's how I did it:
                      - got home insurance with Legal & General - £50 cashback
                      - a bit of furniture from places like Littlewoods Direct and M&S - about £40 cashback in total
                      - a new desk from Staples - £10 cashback
                      - new kettle and toaster from Robert Dyas - £4
                      - signed up for TalkTalk to get internet connection - £24 cashback
                      - signed up to British Gas - £20 cashback

                      And on top of it I got £16 on my travel insurance and £10 on camera bought on Amazon. £174 in total cashback. Would have been only £87 if I used those websites that give me join up bonus! Worked out pretty well for me. Also I do a bit of daily clicks with Kelkoo when searching for stuff on internet - Quanti pays you cashback on this as well (very tiny though).

                      Another good thing is that the money appears in the account very quickly, I only had problems with tracking my transaction once and they got back to me the same day I emailed them and raised the ticket to track my cashback. Good customer service I have to say.

                      The truth is that sometimes it takes long for your transaction to be validated and for your money to be paid - sometimes it can be as long as 3 months. What Quanti could do in future is to add an indication to each retailer showing how long it will take for the cashback to arrive.

                      But apart from that one flow I have been really happy using them. They pay out quickly after you request your cashback and they pay through PayPal which is the most convenient for me. You can also get paid by cheque - for those who are a bit more traditional. They have a friend referral program that pays you £1 for every friend that joins.

                      I have used other big cashback sites and have experienced quite a few problems with my transaction not being tracked. That most annoying thing with it though was that they never reply to emails! That doesn't make it good customer experience - this is what I found very satisfying with Quanti and that's why I would recommend this site to other people.

                      And another important thing to summarize - you don't need to pay anything to join, it's free, however they do deduct £3 annual fee from your earned cashback - which I think is fair enough as they don't make money on our commissions. And it's lower than other sites out there in the market.
