I think you have misunderstood Kev's sense of humour. That is the problem with writing on a forum, you do not see the body language or hear the tone of voice which give so much more meaning to spoken words. I know Kev is joking because I have known him online for many a year. I do not always agree with him though but on this occasion I am 100% sure he was joking.

It may also include the amounts claimed as rejected by the big two but actually received.

I have largely stopped using them as they now seem, in my case, to have a 90% non acceptance rate and most, if not absolutely all, times I have to go chasing the payment. Still waiting for 2 for Voda which is over a year old.

I thought that 100% of cashback links links were paid out but any that were merely adverts did not create cashback and therefore zero cashback for the consumer but a revenue for the site.

It partly comes down to whether you accept a distinction between "cashback attributed directly to an individual's transaction" and other types of payment by advertisers. For example, quidco will earn "tenancy" payments from advertisiers; these are additional payments that a merchant agrees to pay in return for greater exposure on quidco's site, newsletter etc. Or such payments could take the form of performance bonuses e.g. an extra £1000 for every 100 purchases made by Quidco members. But ultimately, the advertiser is only willing to pay such amounts because a % members click on these adverts and buy stuff so don't the members deserve to share in these funds too? As you are not shareholders of quidco, you have no way of forcing the company to be transparent about the extent of such revenues

As imutual grows, we will also be able to utilise these additional sources of revenue. Once we've met our essential overheads e.g. salaries, development costs, wouldn't you expect us to pass a share of this onto you? After all, as my chart shows we're talking £40m just over the past few years :shock:
