Hi

just wondered what is the best cashback site for ebay. Ebay is pretty much the only website i use for online buying apart from the odd amazon purchase or tesco order. Would quidco be my best option? do they give you cashback on anything you buy ?

also can insurance be bought using quidco for places like tesco, its4me, etc..?

cheers

35% for winning a eBay auction. This amount is based on eBay revenue - not on the price you pay.

i noticed quidco says this about ebay. does this mean you get 35% of the sellers fees ? not 35% of the price you paid for the item ?

cheers

thanks marmaliser. my wife and her mum buy heaps from ebay so should rack up a fair wee bit. Its a shame you cant get 35% of fees when your selling too as she sells quite a lot of stuff too.

wonder if theres a paid to sell site hehehe

I agree it is a real shame they dont give any cash back on sellers fees, would be much better for me!!

Normally I'd use quidco, the 35% of fees is pretty much the same around the CB sites.

Now, I'm not a Nectar guru, but they seem to have a 1 point for every ?1 spend.

It says "Collect 1 point per ?1 on Winning Bids and Buy-It-Now items"
i think Nectar pay it, not ebay via nectar, if you know what I mean.

Not sure of the true value of this, but it looks interesting.

Have a look. (http://www.nectar.com/dynamic/estores/retailer/ebay#tab2)

On a recent purchase of ?200 the seller fees in Quidco were shown as ?5.93 and I receievd ?2.08.

If I had done this purchase through nectar I would have earnt 200 points which I think are roughly worth ?1 so Quidco wins for me on this simple comparison.

Cheers Marmaliser.
I'm never sure what value Nectar points have.

I'd like to collect them myself as most of the stores the cashback sites
promote are also on Nectar estores.
But the Nectar earning rate always looks unattractive compared to the CB sites.
That and the lack of BP & Sainsbury's in my area, anyway.

Now off to Mr T's.
The only store I know of that has Noooooooo leaflets with vouchers or points EVER!!
