You need to activate the offer and the promotion is limited to the first 50,000 members who opt-in.
What shall I spend my £2.50 on?
I won’t try to get anyone too excited about £2.50; for most people this probably isn’t life changing. As these promotions crop up reasonably frequently they add nicely to the Quidco balance. Premium members can withdraw that balance to a number of methods with varying bonuses. We’ve covered Zeek quite a bit, and that gives you a 15% boost to spend on a broad range of gift cards.
Travel related payout options (with Premium member bonus rates) are;
- Uber (4%)
- Evans Cycles (8%) – Ok, I admit that’s a tenuous travel link 😂
- Thomas Cook (5%)
I get that the average InsideFlyer reader probably doesn’t have much interest in package holidays, but I might have a confession on that topic later this year…………
But I don’t need anything
This is often how they get you, isn’t it? You seek out something, anything, to buy to get the £2.50 cashback. I did uncover a fairly risk free option with the last bonus offer, and that was a FairFX currency card.
They offer pre-paid currency cards, with US Dollar, or Euro single currency cards, and an ‘Everywhere’ card that converts from UK pounds at time of purchase. At the minimum level £50 top-up, you’re getting £9.50 + £2.50 bonus cashback. £12 back on a £50 spend (24%) is not a bad return. As I have a couple of trips to Eurozone countries coming up, that worked out well for me. You could probably do a little bit better with regard the exchange rates with a FX fee-free credit card, or Curve, but not 24% better!
