Free £22 from Quidco

Just go to Mahindra Electric Cars UK and book a test drive (you can cancel the booking straight away (read T&C))
The payment tracked within an hour
They claim to offer £5.50 but mine tracked at £22 !!

    It will obviously track but they will reject it once they see you cancelled.

    I agree, it wont be paid.

    Being tracked means nothing.

  • And quite right it wont be paid. What an absolute abuse of the offer.

    Well you are not buying a service but expecting to be paid in return - it might not be an abuse but it is cheeky.. Regardless, being tracked doesn't mean it will be paid. Before that, it needs to be confirmed by the merchant.

  • Hi all!

    We're re-opening this thread for users who feel they may genuinely be interested in taking a test drive and getting the cashback

    I am doing nothing wrong -just following the instructions on the site
    ie)
    • Cashback is only available to new customers booking a test drive
    • Cashback is not available for vehicle purchases
    • Cashback is only eligible on Quidco advertised vouchers
    • Please also see the retailer's standard terms and conditions for purchase as listed on their site
    • Cashback will not be paid in conjunction with any other offer, voucher or discount code unless listed on this page, or with any other discounts such as staff or student discounts
    • Cashback may not be paid on VAT, delivery, card payment fees, taxes or any other additional charges
    I have booked a test drive FULL STOP.
    It is their fault that the cashback has tracked at £22 rather than the expected £5.50
    Just wait and see if they pay me or not.......

    No point shouting at us.

    Save your breath, and shout at quidco, or Mahindra Electric Cars, when you fail to receive your cashback......

    You booked the test drive, but then cancelled it - So no test drive is now booked.

    Its an abuse of the cashback system and just ruins it for everyone else.

    It might be their fault that cashback has tracked at wrong amount. However, we are talking about how you didn't understand what a tracked claim means (your original post). ;)
