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
  • Most 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  • Even though we do our best to keep the information on this page up to date, it may be out of date from time to time.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

Helpful Information

Shopping Waterstones

With the advent of e-books and electronic learning programs, many have argued that the age of paper books will soon be over. However, all bookworms know that there is nothing quite as satisfying as flipping through the pages of a new book. Waterstones is one of the largest book retailers in the United Kingdom with a formidable online presence and over 283 physical stores in the UK, Ireland, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

Shopping at Waterstones

Waterstones is a household vendor of books and stationery in the United Kingdom. They’re effectively merchants of knowledge. They sell all kinds of books, from instructional books for starting readers to political and metaphysical commentaries for adults with obscure interests.

Waterstones books make great gifts for avid readers when you buy them with limited Waterstones promo codes. Watch out for their announcements on the web and in their stores and get further savings when you apply Waterstones discount codes. If you’re trying to gift a more free-spirited person who’s unsure about the books he or she would like to read, try a Waterstones card and get exclusive discounts even during clearance sales, and buy books to your heart’s content.

Waterstones books: An award-winning selection

Waterstones prides itself on carrying the most recent titles fresh off the presses. Waterstones best sellers today include The Guest List by Lucy Foley and The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman.

The shop also awards the Booker Prize each year. A panel of literary experts and judges comes together to discuss the ideas of exciting and bold new authors to give a fresh voice to what is widely considered the most important literary award in the United Kingdom.

Where to buy Waterstones gift cards

You can buy a Waterstones gift card from the United Kingdom’s most popular marketplaces like Tesco, Morrisons, Argos, Boots, and The Co-operative. They might have varying expiration dates and discount rates, so make sure to consider those when making a gift for a special occasion. Waterstones gift cards have come in two amounts: £15 and £25, and can be used to earn Plus Stamps and when paying for online orders.

Waterstones opens at 9 am and closes at 7 pm every weekday. On weekends, they open at 9 am on Saturday, and 11.30 am on Sunday and close at 7 pm on Saturday and 5.30 pm on Sunday. All their shops are closed on public holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Boxing Day, and New Year.
