Great to get free cash, just sometimes you have to work for it
Had a few instances where the purchases have tracked then the retailer refuses to honour the deal. I have had to involve Trading Standards on one occasion. For those who haven't joined up, you might read this article first: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/blog/2011/nov/03/cashback-sites-consumer-rights-minefield It does offer some good advice and raises the question - who is making the offer - the retailer or the cashback site?. When it works its good, when it goes wrong both blame each other and leave you to it. Once you involve Trading Standards then you may get some redress. But it all takes time... and the effort might not be worth the amounts involved, and you're left feeling cheated. It's an area where retailers benefit whether or not you get paid cashback, so for them it's a win-win situation. Those that do rip off customers offering cashback then refusing to pay up need to be taken to task.
