I’ve been told that Argos are going to stop working with All Cashback sites :(

Anyone else no more?

I would suspect as more and more of us are shopping online and it is becoming the norm, there is less need to offer commission/referral payments.

Take the scenario:
Two retailers are selling the exact same product. One with zero cashback and the other with 0.00001% cashback.

Which one do you choose?

In response to your pointless, worthless and damn right stupid post, lets take your scenario:

I want to spend £500 on a toaster (no doubt similar to your personal toaster)

Dicksons offers me no cashback, so I pay £500.
Kurrys offers me 0.00001%, so I still pay £500.

I get that offering something may be an incentive, but with rates as you have suggested, you would have to be quite thick.

With such low rates, even 1%, I would go to the more reputable retailer who has provided me with good service in the past regardless if I miss out of CB, but then I woudn't spend £500 on a toaster :twisted:

Good for you. Hope you get good support in the unlikely event of a fault.
No surprise you are so wealthy. Every little DOES help. But as usual I suspect your post is full of 5hit like all your others.

More the reason for offering cashback as the fact or the amount might be the reason for customer shopping a one place over another

Then of course there is the brexit effect. (Sorry could not resist that one. in the same way the rising cost of lettuce and later in the year potatoes will be blamed by some on it when it is due to the weather at the moment. But stops the far right wing media of blaming the EU because brexit is happening)

Only me and Richard know for sure as he has the data on all of my purchases via imutual (item, name, address etc).
