The Quidco story began in 2005


Quidco is the smart, free and easy way to earn cashback when shopping online, in-store and on mobile.

Working with 4,000 retailers, Quidco rewards its members with cashback every time they shop by simply passing on the retailer commission to the member's bank or PayPal account, in a secure and hassle-free way.

Founded in 2005, Quidco quickly established itself as the UK's leading cashback rewards platform before branching out from its online roots to offer members the opportunity to earn rewards on the High Street, through a unique card-linked programme, and when they shop at the supermarket with ClickSnap, the most generous and varied grocery cashback tool on the market.

As well as rewarding over 4 million UK shoppers, Quidco also acts as an insightful distribution platform for all its retail partners ensuring they meet their marketing objectives by reaching out more effectively to their targeted audience.

Guest comment: Customers want to feel special

July 2014

Walking into a shop on the high street can be a very anonymous experience. The shop assistants don’t know who you are, they don’t know what you’re looking for and they can’t instantly suggest options for you to purchase. So, you end up browsing the shop and perhaps missing out on relevant offers and products. What if you could visit the high street and be presented with suggested retailers and offers based on your interests and preferences?

Retail Innovation as consumers tighten the purse strings

July 2014

The economy may be on the upturn, but the figures seem to show that consumer spending is still restrained. This week’s latest ONS figures, for example, show growth in online spending over the last year – but a fall on last month. Across the board, the figures show, retail growth is still lacklustre. From retailers to property developers and social media, technology is being harnessed in some very interesting ways. We report on some of them today.

Tech viewpoint on personalisation by Andy Oldham, MD at Quidco

July 2014

It's the most overused word in marketing and advertising in 2014, so let's drill down to what personalisation actually means. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, it is "the process of making something suitable for the needs of a particular person". As amazing as that sounds, how can we possibly know about a particular person's needs? The answer is the second most overused word in marketing and advertising - data.

Customer Insight: No secret to good service

May 2014

With more ways to shop than ever before, Draper's expert panel finds that giving customers what they want is becoming even more challenging. How does the consumer shop for fashion today? In a world where a transaction can be done at high speed during a TV ad break on an iPad or, at the other end of the spectrum, during a leisurely store visit, how can retailers best serve customer needs? Businesses ranging from formalwear seller Hawes & Curtis over Topshop to Quidco joined Drapers at the Covent Garden Hotel in London on May 1 to discuss these questions using the findings of Drapers’ latest Customer Insight Report.

Shopping to mend a broken heart just leaves you broke: Survey reveals 10 reasons to shop

May 2014

Lovelorn women who indulge in some retail therapy tend to shell out more than on any other shopping trip, a study has found. Going “window shopping” is another pitfall for many – they eventually splash the cash even though they set out not to spend anything at all. Andy Oldham, of cashback site Quidco.com, which ­commissioned the poll, said: “Shopping has often been called retail therapy, and for many, it seems that’s still the case. “Some moods and experiences can have more of an effect on how much you spend, and it looks like women are more willing to part with their cash after breaking up with someone.

Why a broken heart can break the bank: Women who shop after a failed relationship spend more than any other time

May 2014

Going shopping after suffering from heartbreak is bad for your bank balance, a study has revealed. Researchers found that women who head to the shops to cheer themselves up after calling time on their relationship spend more money than on any other shopping trip. The study, which looked at more than 2,000 women, found that on the average post-split shopping outing they can expect to spend around £43 on new clothes, shoes or accessories in an attempt to help ease their heartbreak.

Insurers are putting the brakes on premium cut

January 2013

You can use cashback sites to trim your car insurance bill further. Last week, Quidco was offering £70 cashback for drivers who signed up with Aviva via the website. It was also ofering £50 cashback with companies such as Direct Line and £35 with Esure.

Shop smart with the best mobile apps

December 2012

Customers receive cashback when they shop via this Quidco. They even collect small amounts for just "checking in" to certain stores - paying them to visit without spending. For example, if you "check in" to White Stuff, you will receive 20p, while a visit to the garden centre at selected branches of Homebase earns you 50p. You cannot just sit at home and pretend you are out shopping as Quidco has the co-ordinates of participating shops and tracks your location via your phone and GPS.  

Couples fall out whilst shopping

December 2012

A woman's biggest nightmare was revealed yesterday - shopping with men. Women don't like to be rushed into buying something and one in three couples have ended up in a mid-aisle row. Disagreements over how much to spend, whether an item is really needed and "taking too long to make a decision" are the biggest bug bears, a study by Quidco found. Andy Oldham, of cashback site Quidco, which commissioned the study, said: "It can be difficult to agree with your partner on everything and rows seem to be common. Christmas shopping is only going to add to the stress." 

Rein in your Christmas travel costs

November 2012

Another simple way to make savings on your travel is through a cashback site, such as Quidco.com. New findings from the site show that so far in 2012, members have pocketed almost £250,000 in cashback on public transport. Current deals available through Quidco.com include 6 per cent cashback on Southern Rail, 2 per cent on all sales at Virgin Trains and 5 per cent on all coach sales with National Express.  

Glad tidings on how to save in the festive season

November 2012

Cashback websites such as Quidco pay money back into your account when you shop via them at the retailer of your choice. Quidco has over 3,500 retail partners including Tesco, M&S and Argos 

Mrs Crunch App of the Week

November 2012

Shoppers using Quidco's free app are quids in. It rewards you for visiting 80 stores including Debenhams, M&S and House of Fraser, paying you to "check in" in-store and giving cashback deals and local exclusive voucher codes. And, until November 25, it will also give away prizes worth from £1 to £10 for every 100th check-in at some of the UK's biggest stores. These are in addition to the standard 'check in' rewards. The Quidco mobile app is available for iPhone and Android 

The data revolution that will help you live for less than ever

November 2012

Get discounts on goods from your favourite shops. Download the free Quidco app at www.quidco.com and get cashback when you pop into high street stores, alerts on deals as you shop and price comparisons between rival stores. 

Mr Money November Rush

November 2012

Online buyers who want more bang for their buck should shop online between now and November 14 as cashback amounts from retailers increase in a bid to bag early Christmas custom. Over the last three years, shoppers have pocketed above average commission rates in this ten-day period, according to research from Quidco. 

Cash in this Christmas

November 2012

New findings from Quidco show that shoppers looking to get more for their money should shop online now, as those who start early can benefit from the fact that retailers discount hard from November 4 to 14. The site found that over the last three years, shoppers have consistently pocketed higher than average commission rates in this 10-day period. By contrast, last minute shoppers miss out on major cashback bargains as they are reduced in December when demand is higher and shopping is in full-swing.
