cash back for shopping.

Advantages: cash back for doing what you already do.
Disadvantages: can take sometime to receive your money
What can I say, a site that not only finds you up to date offers and discounts, but when you spend through them you also receive cash-back, unbelievable yes, but completely true.
I was browsing the internet for ways to save a bit of money before Christmas last year. I came across quidco and haven't looked back. I was at first dubious, money for doing what I'm already doing seemed a bit unlikely to say the least. However I decided I had nothing to lose and after reading a few reviews and getting some more information online to confirm the site was legit and safe to use, decided to give it ago.
I have managed to earn over £100.00 over the past year. I know it sounds a small amount but really its money for nothing. Registering is extremely straight forward, you simply enter your details similarly to the way you do on ciao. It`s very quick and easy. I could not believe how great it was.
Once you have registered you are able to start using the site immediately. Every time you wish to make a purchase online search quidco first to see if the site you wish to purchase from is available for cash back. Then click through to the site your wishing to use and continue as normal. It's so simple!! It becomes second nature to simply go through quidco; in fact I have made it my home page so as not to forget.
When you find the store you wish, a screen opens with any offers available for you to use and then you click through to the site. There is also an app for smartphones for you to be able to save whilst out and also some stores offer you cash back for just going into the shop. You just open the app and search for in store offers and once you are in the store check in by clicking check in, make sure your internet is on.
You can also earn by searching with kelkoo, there is a maximum of one a day and 1p a time, holidays are also available from Disneyland Paris to Haven. I use this site every time a make a purchase online, some retailers pay more than others but as I have said before if you are going to purchase the items anyway, its money for nothing.
There is a huge variety of stores all the major online stores are included. Argos I use a lot. You can search and purchase insurance and mobile contracts too. The offers and cash back change frequently, but it is all clearly shown when you click on each store. You can also find printable vouchers too and there are countless vouchers and offers for restaurants. And if you refer a friend and they earn £5.00 you receive £2.50.
If you register your cards with quidco, some store offer in store cash back for purchases also, it's a win, win. Your first five pound cash back per year is retained by quidco.
The money you earn is paid into your registered bank account or into your PayPal account, the choice is yours and is paid if you have £1.00 or more in confirmed cash back every two weeks unless you set the amount higher which you do in your settings.
The way quidco works is when you make a purchase through quidco, they track the cash back. They receive commission from the companies for encouraging your custom and this in turn is passed on to you. Once quidco receive your cash back the status is changed to confirmed until your account reaches £1.00 or amount set by yourself. Then once a fortnight the payment is made to you via your choice of payment. Payment takes around 2-5 days to get from your quidco account to your bank account.
I would give one piece of advice however, the money is not guaranteed until it is confirmed; and I would say that really not until the money is paid would I consider it mine. I have not personally had any problems with cash back and receiving the money but I have heard of problems.
Another great thing about quidco is there is no SPAM, they send you a weekly newsletter and emails to confirm purchases and payments and that's it.
You can save hundreds of pounds, it brilliant.
www.quidco.co.uk it's well worth a look to see if it's for you.
Summary: cashback site for many purchases.
