    I received my cash back from insurance purchased in July and August. It took 8 months and 7 months

    I’ll leave it to consumers to draw their own conclusions about which referral site they may prefer to use going forward.
    They're going to merge so it's a moot point:
    https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2018/11/owners-of-topcashback-and-quidco-reach-merger-deal/

    I stopped using Quidco when they refused to publish reviews critical of retailers (e.g. one had stopped paying cashback 9 months previously).

    Since I'm here, took the opportunity to review my earnings from each site.
    TCB - this year £23.86, total since Jul 2013 £1,264.81
    Quidco - this year 55p, total since Aug 2010 £1,715.79

    Not a huge amount but it's free money all the same :money:

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for this thread. I’m working on little ways to pay down my student loan and my mortgage earlier and have already earned over £100 on top Cashback, on things I’d have bought anyway like car and home insurance where it saved even more money through a price comparison site!

    Just a reminder that there are feedback/question threads for both topcashback and Quidco on this part of the forum

    This isn't really the thread for that , I've moved a couple of posts to those threads

    I use both Topcashback & Quidco. I find Topcashback by far the best overall in terms of cashback rates, although always worth checking on both to see if Quidco trumps TCB. Both also have occasional bonus offers (often around a bank holiday) and Quidco seem to have the better bonuses, so worth seeing if you need to purchase anything then. I've made over £25 just in bonuses from Quidco in the last year and £13 from TCB.
    Things like broadband, mobiles & insurance often have the biggest cashback rates, although I now have a SIM only deal on my phone for true moneysaving, which I also got cashback on :money:
    Overall, I have made £1397.22 from TCB and £352.92 from Quidco since joining about 10 years ago. Not a fortune, but worth the small extra effort when purchasing online. Sometimes you have to wait months for cashback to become payable and sometimes it gets declined for no clear reason although sometimes raising a claim does work.
