Do you use Cash Back sites?

To date I have never used these when purchasing on line. I do use Honey to look for vouchers etc.

Do you use any cash back sites?

I just joined TopCashBack and Quido just to see if they can work for me but I'd be interested in any of your experiences.

We looked at them but could generally find as good or better prices through Google.

I've used Quidco once a couple of years ago for cash back on a contract phone. Pure accident really. I had decided on the phone I wanted, googled offers on it and the deal came up.

I've always been suspicious of the principle behind them as a discounting tool. I see them aimed at the indebted inadequates in need of ready cash and who will inevitably get in further debt.

Having said that I can't see anything wrong in taking advantage of a good deal when it comes along if the deal is not done on credit

I'm not sure I agree with the "indebted inadequates..." statement however if, all else being equal, someone wants to give me some cash for doing what I was going to do anyway, then I'm all for it...

...and I am certainly no indebted inadequate who is in need of ready cash

Opps! please accept my apologies for any offense caused, there was certainly none intended. As I said I have taken advantage of such discounting and would do so again. I just feel that there is something unprincipled about it. The offer not the taking of it that is.

No probs - no offence taken.

Tbh it probably adds a level of complexity to buying 'stuff' now as I would be suspicious that I was getting the best price through a cashback site. I would need to check the price outside of the cashback site to verify the deal.

I think that would be a given Graham.

I've used a cashback site twice, both to do with my mobile. The latest requires that I furnish them with a screenshot of the bill every couple of months (after a lag of 4 months I think) - they probably bank on people forgetting to do that.

Probalay best left alone in my opinion Pat. Free lunches and all that.

I get offers of free samples or great deals of all sorts evert day, including stuff like iphones for one pound.

I may be missing out on huge savings, I suppose.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

The only 'CashBack' we have experienced was in the states where you could buy items on a Credit Card and also take some cash out as well. No charges to the customer for cash and the retailer lowers their cash holding.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
