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