    Cashback scam, Argos. 31st Mar 17 at 4:39 PM
    I just bought something from Argos online for collection. About to Sign Out when a cashback offer appeared that would have paid for the item. I am always suspicious about these offers, so I scrolled down a little. They wanted my card details, so I scrolled down a bit more. It was an agreement to bill me 15 a month from my card, in order to provide me with cashback offers! SSSSCAAAAAMMMMM!!!!

    The site is in the USA and the address is:

    one-time-offer.com

    Probably operating on other online outlets besides Argos by now. Let's be careful out there!
    I think this job really needs
    a much bigger hammer.

    But for every Autumnella there must be several others who don't use it efficiently, otherwise the company would go bust in a jiffy.

    That still doesn't make it a scam. If people sign up for something and then don't use it to their advantage, that's their issue. Labelling this offer a scam, as the OP has done, is disingenuous at best.

    I didn't say it did ... I was responding to the post immediately before mine - the company obviously relies on people who don't appreciate how best to use it.

    Cash back
    Hi
    This is not a scam. I use complete cash back and they are extremely good. Especially when I bye so many train tickets. I pay 15 month however get more than that back, straight into my account. You also get a monthly bonus.

    Hope this helps

    As far as I am concerned, any 'freebie' offer which requires my credit card details is a (potential) scam.
