Not familiar with Quidco? It’s a cashback website that allows you to earn a percentage of money back on your shopping if you click through from their site. They’ve got over 3,000 retailers, so you should be able to find your favourite store. You can even use it to book hotels and holidays, and they often have some fantastic offers on mobile contracts and iPhones.
Handy when you’re shopping online, but what about shopping on the high street?
The iPhone app allows you to earn and save money when you walk into the store. There are several ways you can do this:
- In-Store cashback. Register your debit or credit card with Quidco and you can earn cashback when you’re shopping in store. The app allows you to see what rate the store offers.
- Special Offers. Quidco has a number of special offers, including exclusive codes you can show in store or in restaurants for a discount.
- Check-in. You can ‘check-in’ to participating stores, where you’ll earn a small amount (usually between 10-25p) each time.
I’ve been trying it out for a few days now, and it’s a really simple and handy way to save money. All the deals close by are listed using your GPS, so it’s easy to find bargains nearby at the click of a button.
It’s clear that a lot of work has gone into building the app, and the result offers a strong rival to apps like VoucherCloud. The check–in feature in particular is impressive, offering more incentive than several other social location apps.
It’s an app that saves you money on stuff you’d buy anyway. What’s not to love?
