Cashback do's and don'ts


  • Cashback is not paid on VAT, delivery charges and any other additional fees, occasionally some may pay cashback on the full basket amount. When a minimum spend threshold is required to be eligible for cashback, retailers do not count VAT and fees in the total spend amount.
  • Cashback can be earned simply by clicking through to the merchant and shopping as normal
  • Cashback is available on genuine, tracked purchases completed immediately and wholly online
  • Purchases at this merchant should appear as pending within 24 hours. They will remain at this status until the merchant confirms the purchase is eligible for cashback. Once this happens your purchase will reach the ‘confirmed’ status on your account
  • The vast majority of transactions from merchants track successfully, occasionally a transaction may not get reported. If you believe this to be the case, please submit a "Missing Cashback" claim within 45 days of the transaction
  • Cashback may initially track at a lower or higher rate and update to the correct rate on confirmation
  • Cashback is not issued by the merchant. If you have any queries regarding cashback or payments, please contact Quidco Customer Support directly and not the merchant
  • Even though we do our best to keep the information on this page up-to-date, it may be out of date from time to time
  • If you purchase products across multiple cashback rates in one session, the lowest rate will track against the full 'basket' amount
  • Cashback will only track if the merchant can track your purchase to us. This means that you must click the 'Get Cashback link', go straight through to the merchant website and make the purchase in the same session without exiting your internet browser
  • The merchant reserves all rights to take action (including legal action) as is considered necessary in its sole discretion in order to prevent or redress any fraudulent or otherwise unlawful use of their website
  • The cashback offered is only available as shown at the time and the merchant reserves the right to withdraw their offering at any time
  • Cashback rates are subject to change and may increase or decrease at any time


  • If you apply an additional discount that reduces your overall purchase price, this may cause your cashback to be declined or reduced. e.g Voucher codes, student discount, staff discount
  • If you pay for your purchase using gift card
  • If you purchase a gift card & gift vouchers
  • If your purchase is not fully completed online
  • If you participate in any other offer/ promotion that is not covered in the retailer Cashback rates

Helpful Information

Shopping is the largest for-profit provider of genealogy services in the world. Founded in 1996 by Paul Brent Allena and Dan Taggart, Ancestry started as an online publishing company with Ancestry magazine in the mid-90s. 

AncestryDNA, a subsidiary of Ancestry LLC company, exploded in popularity in the 2000s due to marketing their direct-to-consumer DNA testing kits. Customers can purchase an Ancestry DNA test, complete it, and mail it to the company for analysis.

In return, they receive their genealogical profile, along with information about their genetic heritage. 

Today Ancestry is the absolute leader in the direct-to-consumer DNA kit market segment. Along with the DNA testing kit, Ancestry also offers additional services, like access to genetic records and mapping genetic heritage.

Ancestry discounts and vouchers

Although Ancestry and Ancestry DNA are premium services and products, as reflected in their prices, the good news is that the company frequently runs promotions, sales, and discounts for some of its services. 

The most popular product is the Ancestry test DNA kit, and currently, there is a 25% discount on the individual kits. The kit itself does not look like much, as the magic happens once the test goes through analysis in Ancestry labs. Only then will the customers be able to see the details of their test on the Ancestry app. 

Ancestry DNA test kits are also a perfect gift. Ancestry gift cards are available for purchase if you wish to gift the service to someone. People are intrigued by their past and heritage, and Ancestry DNA is an ideal excuse to dive into it. 

Finally, for those who decide to go for a yearly Ancestry DNA subscription for services, instead of a monthly pay-as-you-go membership, there is a very generous 50% discount. 

Get more value with Ancestry membership and Family Tree Maker

By signing up for the Ancestry membership, customers can access the largest genealogy knowledge database in the world. Billions of detailed records are available for browsing, and customers can start building their family tree with Ancestry Family Tree Maker.

This membership is ideal for those who would like to explore their roots and learn more about their origins. 

Currently, there is a 14-day free trial offer for Ancestry membership—a perfect way to try the service risk-free before making a purchase.
