    Plusnet Cashback Fail 12th Jul 18 at 9:53 PM
    Has anyone on here had a problem with plusnet and their cashback offers? I recently switched broadband a couple of month ago, I received the cashback email replied and got sent a cheque which I cashed. I then got send another check which I did nothing with and then the original bounced, I later received an email saying a duplicate was sent in error and both had been cancelled but a new cheque would be with me within 14 days. That was a month ago. I few web chats later and I got the number to a separate company that deals with the cashback for plusnet and they said they'ed add me to a spreadsheet and email me. Seems a mess and amateur, if you're thinking of switching I'd consider whether its cheaper deal without the cashback as it may not materialise apparently. We'll see you right yeah right!

    Was that cashback offer from Plusnet themselves or someone like Topcashback? I thought companies (like PN, BT or Sky) always use a pre-paid credit card.

    The golden rule is never switch if the only financial justification is cashback -too many tales of consumers ending up with a dearer deal because the cashback never happens!!

    I had a cheque when joining PlusNet early two years ago. It arrived quickly and was easily cashed.
