Top Cashback Sites Article Discussion



  • ZZ_von_Schnerk

    I have only recently started using Top Cashback and get the impression it is a bit of a con. It seems fine for small purchases but I made 2 in hundreds of pounds over 3 months ago and neither have been paid. One was with Go Compare, which was supposed to pay £30, another was with Hughes electrical which is still outstanding despite all their procedures being followed. It seems very easy for them to cop out of paying out the larger sums, trading standards may need to have a look if they don’t settle these soon.

    I have been using TopCashback for years and for the vast majority of purchases, cashback seems to be guaranteed.  One company has let me down twice and it is the AA Insurance.  On both occasions they have refused to pay cashback and Topcashback have said "Unfortunately, it seems as though they have taken the decision to decline your claim as we have not been identified as the last channel to your sale."
    This is untrue, as I always follow the process that Topcashback lay out on their site about clearing cookies, etc.  
    I have taken the decision to never purchase another product from the AA and to advise my friends and family about my experiences.

    Shame on you AA.

    Options left Quidco at the end of 2024 and it looks like Top Cashback only has car hire on it's retailer list. Has left all cashback sites or are there any other reputable ones where I can claim cashback? I book quite a few hotels so the cashback has ben really useful for me in the past. Thanks.

    I also just discovered that has disappeared from both Quidco and TCB... but my credit card still has a 4% cashback offer running until the end of March...

    I'm sure this has been noticed by others but I couldn't find anything. I've noticed that if I follow a link from Top Cashback and make a purchase, I do eventually get the advertised cash back. However, the prices seem to be much higher than if I go directly to the site. Case in point - I renewed my yearly travel insurance policy through Top Cashback link. It was£192.48 and I qualified for >£40 cash back. Then I received an auto renew email directly from the insurer offering the exact same policy at £102.68. Even with the cash back I am still £50 poorer. I have noticed the same thing on where I can always get a much better price going direct to them rather than through Top Cashback. I assume that this wouldn't be the case for everything but I was quite annoyed that I seemed to be getting money for nothing but have probably ended up losing out.

    Still waiting for Carphone Warehouse to pay up from 08 Mar 2023 with TCB. Despite several bumps TCB keep replying with the same response. Status is stuck at confirmed and won't budge to Payable.

    Also set up AA breakdown and that hasn't even tracked. Not a great experience so far.
