Flashback Offers - what are they?
Updated over a week ago

Flashback offers are when a retailer is offering a higher-than-usual cashback rate for a limited time only

We bring you multiple flashback offers each week, sometimes with more than one in a single day! With offers so far including rates of 20%, 25% and even 50% cashback. In this article, you'll learn everything you need to be a flashback expert!

Cashback Rate

Flashbacks are time-limited, and we will let you know how long the increased rate is active for. If you're already opted into marketing emails, you'll be the first to know of any amazing deals coming your way.

Why not download the Quidco app and then we'll be able to send you a notification whenever we have a flashback on - meaning you never miss out!

Typically a rate will be a day-long event, but from time to time it'll be so special we'll only be able to run this for a few hours. One of the best ways to find out about these extra special flashbacks is to follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and see what we're up to!

The rates will typically have a maximum cashback attached, which you can find inside the rate itself, such as "50% cashback on all purchases (Maximum cashback £25)". The cap is per order, but if there's more than one thing that's caught your eye - you can click through again and make a second purchase.

Sometimes, a flashback will be on a specific rate, so be sure to check the section 'Online Cashback Rates' on the retailers page to check what you want to buy is covered in the flashback deal. For example, a flashback rate might be "25% cashback on all purchases made through the Quidco app", so in that instance, you'd need to be sure to visit the retailer through the Quidco app.


The majority of cashback will be tracked within a few hours, but in some instances, this can take up to 72 hours. We understand that when you make a purchase, you're keen to know it's worked and see this in your account tracking - but please don't worry if this isn't visible immediately. In the rare instance that a purchase is not tracked after this time has passed, we'd need you to follow normal procedures and raise a missing cashback claim.

The claim form will allow you to raise this for the increased rate for the flashback, but if there are ever any issues with that, you can reach out to our support team on our messenger service so they can assist you. You can reach them by pressing the blue button at the bottom right of this page.

With these rates being so exclusive and time-sensitive, it's normal that they will initially track at a lower rate than expected. In these situations, rest assured this will be updated to the correct amount within 3 working days. We do this automatically, which means you don't even need to drop us a message if this happens.

Additional discounts or offers

We may advertise a voucher code or a special offer the retailer has on top of the flashback rate. This works in the same way as normal cashback, whereby if the offer or voucher is advertised on the retailer's Quidco page, you can use this in conjunction with the cashback rate.

Just like normal cashback rates, our standard cashback exclusions will apply. Be sure to read the Terms and Conditions on the retailer's page to make sure that nothing will interfere with your cashback tracking.
