Cashback site Quidco now gives you the ability to get cashback off products purchased in a limited number of high-street stores.
The new “in-store” service is currently available when making purchases in the following shops/outlets:
- Little Chef
- The Green King Group
- Austin Reed
- Feather & Black
- Direct Golf
- Dorothy Perkins
As you can see, the list of stores is pretty short at the moment, so it will be interesting to see whether Quidco can get other retailers on board – if they do, then it could become very useful.
To take part in the service, you won’t need to use any special codes in the shops, but you will need to provide Quidco with your debit or credit card details (and remember to use them when buying your items, so that Quidco can match up the transactions with your account, and credit you with the cashback). This may put a few people off, although Quidco do try to reassure about the security issues in doing this:
We never ask you to provide the card expiry date or security code. This means that â€˜cardholder not presentâ€™ (e.g. internet) transactions cannot be carried out with the data that we hold for you. Of course we do not know your PIN for high street transactions either.
Don’t forget, there are also several credit cards that give you cashback on all of your purchases, and these are worth looking at if you’re confident that you’ll pay off your balance in full every month (there’s little point getting a cashback credit card if you end up paying a load of interest on your credit card balance). You may also be able to get cashback from both Quidco and the credit card to double your saving.
