Now two weeks after I applied for this account. Soon after so doing I read the reviews and my heart sank; looks like yet another rogue merchant who continues to be promoted on here with attractive cashback offers they have no intention of paying. I considered cancelling the application but decided to proceed.
They have set up the account without any undue fuss and it all seems to work. However, no sign of any tracking - and even when it does I have practically no confidence in them paying up.
I lodged an enquiry giving tcb my concerns, only to be met with the usual platitudes and (red rag to a bull) the disclaimer that cashback isn't "guaranteed" and that I should never make a purchase based on the cashback. That must be why tcb encourages teams of its members to achieve as much cashback as possible and promotes the highest payers with utter disregard for the feedback from existing customers on here.
I'd love to know how a transaction which is easily identified (i.E. I have a current account number etc.) And which has fulfilled the various specified terms and conditions can then be declined (according to nearly everyone who has taken the trouble to report their experiences with the merchant) with utter inpunity. Tcb glibly then throw up their hands and claim it's a "merchant decision" and the aforementioned statemtns apply. So - why bother having terms and conditions?
my transaction has neither tracked nor been declined - but it flies in the face of fairness, customer service or basic decency for a merchant to behave as this one seems likely to yet be welcomed back on tcb with open arms knowing it can do and say whatever it likes without and consequences.
I do hope i'm wrong, but....!
I applied for two current accounts with halifax in march via tcb and neither cashback claim has been answered still after all this time, even with multiple nudges sent. No cashback received still, very poor both o nthe part of halifax (for not paying up) and tcb falsely advertising an offer which is not being honoured in the majority of cases.
Not good enough tcb. Better off using the main rival cashback site which seems to have a better record in paying up in my experience over the last 3 years.
Come on tcb, sort this halifax fiasco out now and get our cashback to us promptly!
never get any cashback from tcb. They said they will look into the cashback problem for us but they did nothing! they just want people to stop given bad reveiws!!!
Didn't track, missing claim submitted but nothing still
Had to put a claim in but eventually £45.45 Tracked. Just waiting for it become payable.
Took a little while to track the cashback but came through within a month.
Looks like I am in a small but satisfied minority. I received my £50 cash back from tcb and also my £50 from the bank into my account. Switching service went through no problem- despite my mistrust that it wouldn't.
When I did this, tcb had specified that you had to submit a missing cashback claim as a matter of course and then the cashback would not be paid until the new account was all up and running with all d/d transfers done etc. I wonder if those having problems did all this?
Applied for acc on 28th sept - paid cashback 1st december. Seems I was lucky lloking at all the other comments
Applied for halifax reward account back in december. Did not track, so submitted claim to topcashback. Topcashback was very usefull, but explained my cashback was simply refused by the merchant network.
Don't open the account for simply the cashback, walk into a branch they offered me £30 to switch my accounts.
It seems like I am the only one who've got at least something positive about halifax cashback offer! :)
the transaction still hasn't tracked through after submitting suggested by topcashback manual claim. Although, re: simonsimon, I have got promised on halifax bank website 50 gbp cashback directly from the bank, though I had to go to my local branch and ask them, how about my cashback offer? 3 days later 50 pounds were on my bank account. So it is worth asking in local branch about the cashback if you got the offer when applied on halifax website. And another positive thing - 5 pounds monthly just for having account and paying in 1000 is nice! hopefully 50 gbp from topcashback will get paid eventually! :)
