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?
I'm sure they pass on all the earnings, minus the costs for overheads, advertising, site redesigns, profits, sunday lunch, etc., etc.
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.
Unfortunately, there are many "gullible ones" - but even more who still don't use a cashback site at all.
