Beat HUGE car & home insurance price hikes.

I enjoyed very much Martin's show tonight and he has also mentioned again briefly Using sites such as Quidco to get money back once you purchase home or car insurance.

I followed his advice previously given and purchased Car policy on 13 April this year via Quidco Compare Car Insurance and the purchase has been tracked for the sum of £45.00 but it has not been paid since  and it has been more then 6 months now! So in the end, without this money being paid, I am worse off as could have purchased slightly cheaper policy without using a site like Quidco. For me working part-time due to health issues and nearing the Pension £45.00 is a great deal of money so feel cheated that the sites like Quidco can get away with it!

Contacting Quidco has been complete waste of time so wondering if anyone else have had the same experience assadly this appear to be not the way to save money?

Upon googling on the issue I have come across a fair numbr of people complaining that they have never received money from Quidco and other similar sites promising cash back so am suprised that the Martin's team is not aware of it as I am sure Martin would not have mentioned it again tonight!.

    Did see the show but this site has always said to see cash back as a bonus and that its not guaranteed so factor that in when deciding what and how to buy.

    Insurers clearly have much more data on you than a random web retailer of physical products and so its easier for them to link previous introductions to ensure the right company receives the commission for introducing the business to them.
