The undisputed heavyweight in the UK online cashback site industry, QuidCo has gained a reputation for providing some of the most widespread and generous cashback opportunities. While many will only be familiar with the brand because of the relatively out-there public transport marketing campaign the company recently embarked upon, it has attracted almost 2 million active users since its inception – a staggering amount considering the service still remains in its infancy.
The premise is simple – users shouldn’t pay full price for, well, pretty much anything, and with so many cashback offers available at a wide selection of major retailers, it’s never been easier to take advantage of what’s out there. The service has also been positively featured on a number of BBC shows, in the Guardian, the Financial Times, The Sunday Times and more, meaning you can be sure that everything going on here is 100% safe and secure.
The primary earning opportunity (although notably not the only one) at QuidCo is shopping online using the site’s referral links. Once you’ve joined the site, all you need to do is use the site’s search feature to find the product or brand you’re looking for and the places that offer cashback on purchases of that brand. A wide number of retailers are featured as partners on the site, including major highstreet brands such as HMV, Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, Tesco, Argos and many more.
There are 3,300 retailers featured on the site in total, meaning it’s highly likely that a site you already shop at provides a cashback deal of some kind. This is the true beauty of QuidCo: you don’t really have to alter your shopping patterns at all – simply log into QuidCo before you start shopping and access the sites you normally shop with (and perhaps some new discoveries) through the site’s affiliate links. It’s as simple as that.
The undisputed heavyweight in the UK online cashback site industry, QuidCo has gained a reputation for providing some of the most widespread and generous cashback opportunities.
One of the best features on QuidCo is that users can also benefit from a number of fantastic cashback offers on the high street by registering their credit and debit cards with the site. To take advantage of this, once registering, all you need to do is shop offline in the same way as you normally do and your cashback rewards will filter into your online account as if you had shopped online with QuidCo.
Another feature we loved was QuidCo Compare, a service that brings together cashback rewards and insurance comparison to help you find the best insurance deal. Although there are plenty of similar sites out there, this is the only one we have found that combines this with great cashback deals, too!
QuidCo also offers a range of features and services that can be accessed from your mobile phone. The QuidCo mobile app can be downloaded for iPhone, iPad (from the app store) and Android (from the QuidCo website) and gives all users the chance to take all of QuidCo’s fantastic features on the go. This is great news, as it lets users compare the cost of buying online (and how much cashback they might receive) with buying the item on the high street.
As well as this, users of the app can ‘check in’ to a site (using facebook) and receive additional cashback just by sharing it to their profile. Finally, all users of the mobile app can benefit from a range of great vouchers, coupons and discount codes (for both online and offline stores), which helps to generate further savings.
As well as great cashback offers at more than 3,300 stores across the internet (and the highstreet, too), QuidCo helps its members save even more by offering a great collection of discount codes, vouchers and special offers throughout the year. Users can also access a number of printable vouchers that helps them save at gyms, hotels, restaurants and a wide range of other attractions, too. A wide range of ongoing competitions and promotions encourage members to visit the site regularly (such as the ‘refer a friend and win £10k’ promotion) and every friend referral to the site credits your QuidCo account with a further £5 of free funds!
One of the most important elements of any cashback site is the range of methods provided for users to ‘cash out’ their accounts. Thankfully, as you would expect with QuidCo, this is really simple. Users can either have a payment made straight into their bank accounts through fast BACS payment, or opt to have the money they have made shopping online transferred into their PayPal accounts ready to be spent on something else! Regular payment runs mean users don’t have to wait long for the money to be in their accounts, regardless of the methods they choose. Great stuff!
We really enjoyed using QuidCo and can completely understand why it holds such an exalted position in the cashback market in the UK. With a fantastic range of features and heaps of functionality, we were really impressed. Most importantly, the site offers users some of the most generous cashback offers and discounts we have found anywhere online, so we can really see why it’s so popular.
Although the site does charge a £5 administration fee each year, it also offers far more cashback opportunities than any other site, so we’re pretty sure the small fee will be pay for itself pretty quickly. If you’re looking for a way to get your shopping to give a little back, QuidCo is definitely a great choice – check it out today!
