It’s a while since I first heard about Quidco but I never really understood what it was and, rather stupidly, didn’t bother to visit the site to find out. Then a few days I heard about it again and decided to have a butcher’s at it. I’m glad I did.
Quidco is run as a co-operative (I don’t really understand that bit but it’s all explained on the site) and basically, members click through to participating websites whenever they’re going to shop at them and get money back for doing so. Brilliant.
Now as most of you know, I’m not exactly what you'd call a big spender so I'm really not expecting to get hundreds in cash back but if I can get a few bob back, that’s gotta be better than a poke in the eye, hasn’t it?
I’ve already booked my airport car-parking by clicking through to Purple Parking so should be getting £7.50 back from them. Considering the parking only cost £28 for a week, that’s a bloody good deal! And in future, whenever I am going to buy anything online, I shall check whether the site’s with Quidco first.
I'm a bit annoyed for not checking it earlier though because, had I bothered, I’d have earned a £15 cash back when I signed up for my green electricity. Damn and blast! Oh well... no use crying over spilt milk, that’ll just make my eyes go all puffy and weird.
According to the good people on MoneySavingExpert’s excellent forums, Quidco really does work so why not have a gander and see whether it’s something you could make use of, too? There’s nothing to lose, after all.
