Voucher site starts ChildLine donations
£1 given each time a member makes a cashback purchase with registered debit or credit card
Cashback and voucher code site Quidco is donating £1 to UK children’s charity the NSPCC for each purchase made by a member that has registered their debit or credit card with QuidCo’s in-store cashback service.
Quidco says the money it donates to the NSPCC will enable the charity’s telephone helpline ChildLine to recruit and train more counsellors to answer calls from children over the Christmas period.
By registering a credit or debit card at http://www.quidco.com/in-store-cashback and then purchasing something in store at retailers such as B&Q or Dorothy Perkins, £1 of Quidco’s money will be donated to the NSPCC. Every purchase will result in cashback for the shopper and other stores in the scheme include Halfords, Sports Direct and Austin Reed.
Lucy George, development manager of fundraising at NSPCC commented: “ChildLine expects to counsel nearly 2,750 children across the UK during the Christmas period. Of all those children, it is anticipated nearly 15 will be at such serious risk of abuse that their case will need to be referred to the police or social services.
“Quidco’s generosity will help ChildLine protect all of these children this Christmas.”
Hannah Green at Quidco said, “Every person that registers a debit or credit card with Quidco will help make those children’s Christmas brighter by enabling the NSPCC to recruit more volunteers.
“Registering their card will also let them accumulate cashback on their Christmas shopping. Thousands of our members earn hundreds of pounds each year which they then put towards holidays, treats or donate to charitable organisations such as the NSPCC.”
Quidco.com enables people to save money on every purchase by paying them ‘cashback’ when they click through and make a purchase at any of the 2,700 retailers listed on its website.
The website pays the commission it gets from the retailer, directly into the shopper’s bank account. It also allows members to earn ‘cashback’ in-store from a range of high street retailers in the DIY, Sports, Fashion, Food and Entertainment sectors. To earn the cashback a member registers their payment cards and gets the cash on all in-store transactions made with these registered cards.
Quidco.com says its free to join site has more than one million members who will each save on average £450 in the next year.
