So generally as a rule I don’t tend to ‘buy in’ to these types of sites, offering cash back deals for doing normal shopping.. However when I moved into my new apartment I wanted to switch energy providers, and I new that Quidco had an offer of £80 cash back to switch to one of the major providers. So I thought I really have nothing to loose. I went ahead with the switch, honestly thinking nothing would come of it – and I have recently received my £80 cash back. That’s right.. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it honestly did work. Granted it took ages for the claim to process… But it’s £80 for doing nothing I wasn’t doing anyway!
Last night I did some online shopping, and then checked Quidco for a voucher code, sure enough there was one – I used that and got a percentage of my spend back. Again I was buying the items anyway – so it made sense to use it.
Unlike the recent internet boom of Groupon, Quidco offers savings on day to day items. Check it out, you’ve nothing to loose!
With the introduction of camera based phone with internet access, applications started popping up all over the place claiming the ability of being able to read product barcodes and compare prices online. In the past I have found that the camera’s have never been really capable or in fact reliable enough to successfully scan the barcode and then find the product..
