    Very true, goes with what the article says really, I transfer everytime a contract is up and get a new deal and a healthy cashback, just sitting back can cost you £100's.

  • Sorry am new to these cash back websites, so if you buy the pay as you go sim deal through quidco when do you get your cashback paid? Just set up an account with Quidco. Am currently paying £12 on a sim only vodafone deal, unlimited texts, enough minutes for what i need, some internet included. I can cancel it as ive had it for years now.

    In short yes setup a quidco account and click a link to t-mobile on there (assuming you want t-mobile), it will track the transaction and you will get the money a few months later.

    I will say quidco take the first £5 you earn in a year but if you have a look around you will probably find of a lot of other places you can get cashback (look for all the retailers you use).

    If you look on quidco at the other mobile operators you may find a better deal for you elsewhere.

  • so when the £ goes into your quidco can you then transfer it to your bank account or would it just sit there until you bought another deal through quidco?
    cheers

    They transfer it to your account if you stell them to, my account is set to when my account gets over £5 they send it.

    There is a lag on cashback of a good few months, but if like me you use it a lot there is just a general flow of transactions (I use it on ebay,hmv,play and such like).

  • so how does it work with cancelling phone contracts, looked on vodafone and it says they need 30 days notice? but some of these quidco deals run out in the nxt few days! do i just pay for 2 phones for a short period of time??

    Its up to you on that front, there is always more offers on quido so don't rush. You current deal seems ok so it can be worth holding out for a better deal.

    I have to say with O2 it look less than a week to cancel.

    It can be wise to order one before cancelling another incase you get rejected, but with low value contracts you generally won't have a problem.

    Save 47% on Vodafone SIM Only

    Expires: 04 Sep 2011


    Earn £100 cashback for a 12 month SIM Only (£15.50 tariff). Effectively £7.17 a month after cashback for up to 300 minutes, 3000 texts and 250MB of data (more details)



    This seems like an even better deal then what am paying, what am confused about would it revert back tp £15.50 per mth once the 12 mth deal is up? Find these things a bit confusing at times!


    Thanks
