I posted on the Swagbucks forum that I had won 7SB for searching for topcashback but said it was a dreadful site I only use for the daily click.

One person replied: my son uses topcash back and he loves it, he tells me how much he makes and he is doing well. I joined a while ago and 3 months ago I bought a new laptop and used my card but it wasn't tracked. I complained, gave the purchase details and am still waiting.I wont use it anymore.

I have sent them a DM on Facebook saying that at imutual he would have got his money if he had bought the item via it.

But that post proves that TopCashBack support is dreadful. I have had great support from imutual when I had a problem.

All sites have their ups and downs.

Customer service in some is atrocious

A couple I belong to are extremely poor bad payers. Especially so since you have to wait till you have a £25 balance for cashout and then wait 30 or more working days for payment.

imutuals customer service in my opinion is patchy. But normally better than most.

Enhancements/improvements here are promised but not very often forthcoming in my opinion.

Imutual has a great selling point in the forum. I think it is great. Extremely diverse and usually very interesting.

TopCashBack closed their forum. Fact.

Heard that the support is poor. May or may not be a Fact.

Encourage us to donate to staff when we cash out instead of paying them the proper salaries presumably. First part is a Fact, the second is supposition on my part so not a Fact but could be a Fact

In the interests of fairness/forum discussion balance, here is TCB response.

I know from experience that TCB refused to add Money Vista until the rate came down to 5.00 on the grounds the amount of Cashback offered was too high for a signup and thus open to abuse, TCB could have added it at a higher rate and kept some of the Cashback as was done during certain periods of promotion of it on MSE by Imutual.

TCB do pass on all the Cashback ( Including "no spend offers" ) excluding bonuses that it receives from the Networks unless a merchant(s) specifically states a Cashback limit that can be paid to the end user ( Cashback Site member) as has been the case with Scottish Friendly, might not be what those who appear to get apparent pleasure from having ongoing pops/digs/negatives at TCB and Quidco want to hear, that is how it is, matter of fact.

Does 100% just mean 100% of what is promoted?
I believe Topcashback rates have dropped a little, certainly less than both imutual and Getpoundsback, although they will match and add top up (1% or 5%). Perhaps the rates have dropped to pay for the top ups? Some gullible ones would lose out I suppose?
Surely not? Are you suggesting that sites might be less than honest? :wtf:

I'm sure they pass on all the earnings, minus the costs for overheads, advertising, site redesigns, profits, sunday lunch, etc., etc. :shifty:

There's little that attracts me to the big 2 these days, I keep my eye on them, but my first port of call is imutual - not just for the amount paid, but because it is far more interactive.... and responsive. :thumbup:

Unfortunately, there are many "gullible ones" - but even more who still don't use a cashback site at all. :roll:

I had one of those and asked Richard to remove it. But then again it was not at one of the big two. Would I have been that honest if it had been? Not sure but I would always do the same here and the other sites I actually use when I buy stuff which is not that often to be honest.

thank you just found the free money never knew this was on Quidco.
Although in my case it was mistracked items which I have not paid for crediting to my account.
