Frequently Asked Questions
How can we help?Contact us
You can set up reminders for occasions like Birthdays, Anniversaries etc. on our website and we will send you email reminders for free. You can also use this helpful service to set reminders for insurance renewals, mobile phone contract renewals, to remind you when a 0% interest deal on your credit card runs out, basically for anything you don't want to forget. There is no limit for the number of reminders you can set. You can choose to be reminded up to three times for any particular event. You can do this by clicking on My Reminder on the top menu bar.
Friend Referral Cash
Your referral friend's cashback will show as approved only after the friend has reached £25 (the threshold limit) in their account. This is because we first need to confirm these are legitimate registrations and then cover the referral fees to you as well as the welcome bonus of £5 to your friend.
No. You are quite welcome to refer as many friends and family members as you like. But if you want to refer a lot of people by other ways of promoting us (for example through your business or websites), please contact us so we can tailor a partnership for you. However, please refrain from unacceptable means of referrals such as spamming.
Yes. You will earn £7 FREE Cash for every friend or family member you recommend to eDealsUK. Please see 'Refer a Friend' link in your eDealsUK account for details. There is no limit to the amount of referral cash you can earn! Some of our members are earning hundreds of pounds in referral cash without spending a penny.
We usually send out payments on or around the 7th of every month. During our monthly payment cycle, we will pay the members who have reached their threshold limit cashback balance of £25 or more. Payment threshold is set at £25, but if you would like to save this amount for a bigger cashback, you can change the payment threshold by updating your profile.
In order to provide you with the best deals, reduce administration costs, cover the welcome bonus, promotions, marketing costs etc. we need to retain a minimum of £25.00
Considering the amount of cashback and discounts you can get from our site, this limit should be easy to reach. This is also to stop people from joining repeatedly in different names just for the welcome bonus of £5! Whether you earn this limit in one day or six months, you can take your time and watch extra cash grow in your account without spending an extra penny.
Payments are sent through BACS. We require your BACS details for doing so. You also need to fill in your valid UK address so we may prevent people from outside the UK (mis)using our site.

Approved: The merchant has approved the transaction and Cashback has been added to your account.
Reversed/Failed: The merchant has reported to us that they will not pay for this transaction (goods returned, payment failed etc). Sometimes merchants can reverse or fail transactions if their terms are not being adhered to, or they suspect fraud.

Missing / Incorrect Cashback
This happens when our partner retailer has analyzed the sale/lead and has decided not to pay us. This could be due to one of the following reasons:
You have returned the goods or cancelled the services during the returns period.
Your transaction was not completed wholly online.
Your credit/debit card was rejected.
You did not fulfill the conditions of the merchant. Only a few merchants have conditions attached. In these cases, we will describe in the merchant description or display a "conditions" link where you can see the conditions attached to the offer.
Please note that gaming and betting merchants can decline or fail transactions if they suspect the user has registered only to get the cashback and not play on their site.

Make sure you are logged into eDeals UK website and select a retailer from one of our hundreds of leading retailers to make your online purchases.
We credit your account with cashback once the retailer pays us the commission. When your cashback balance has reached a minimum of £25, we will send you a payment through BACS.
Yes, as you will understand it is impossible to chase up any missing transactions that are too old. Therefore, if you have any missing transaction you must report this to us within 2 months. Simply submit a ticket to our helpdesk with all the relevant details of your transaction and we will chase it up with the merchant concerned.
Some merchants will only pay commission on purchase amounts excluding VAT and some may not include postage or delivery costs in the amount they use to calculate the commission on.
Some merchants will pay a token amount such as £1 pending verification of the transaction, although this is uncommon.
Please note that Merchants can also change their commission rates from time to time. We update our site as soon as we are notified of these changes, so please check our site for the latest cashback rates.
Merchants can change their rates as well as their terms and conditions from time to time. When they vary their terms, we update our site accordingly. If in doubt, always check the latest terms on our cashback shopping directory.
No. You can start earning cashback immediately from your first purchase.
There are no minimum or maximum limits. However, you will need to have an account balance of £25.00 in cashback before it is paid to you.
There is no limit to the cashback you can earn. The more purchases you make through our site the more you can earn. Sometimes you can earn cashback even without buying anything. For example: taking out free trials, applying for quotations etc. Don't forget you can earn £7.00 FREE cash for every friend or family member you can recommend to eDeals UK. Of course, they will also get their welcome bonus of £5 like you did.
When you make a purchase using the links on our website, the retailers will report the transaction, following which we will update the transaction on your account. We update our members account at least once a day and do not delay in reporting your transaction. We have hundreds of retailers and they all take different times to report and different times before they pay us the commission. Usually, reporting can take anything between 24 hours to a week to two, depending on the merchant. Some merchants processs transactions in batches and report only once or twice a month, (although this is quite uncommon). You can be assured that we make little delays on our side.
Initially after you have made a purchase, our partner merchants confirm the transaction to us as pending and this will be the initial status of all the purchases until the merchant confirms it.
The retailers will wait until the returns period etc., make sure the purchase wasn't returned, payment cleared etc., and then report to us as approved, which we will update in your account.
Sometimes they fail or reverse the transactions when people fail applications or return their goods etc., in these cases the transactions we will also fail or reverse the cashback in your account.
Please note our hundreds of partner retailers have various timescales to approve transactions. It can take anything between a few days to about 6 weeks or so in some cases. We make very little delays from our end in reporting.
If your cashback transaction shows as ""failed"" or ""reversed"" it means the merchant has failed the transaction and refused to pay the commission. The most common reasons for the merchants to fail transactions are:
* Your order was not valid (invalid details, incorrect card details etc.)
* The goods were returned/order cancelled during the returns period.
* You did not follow the terms of the offer or purchase. Please read the conditions and the merchant description on our site. This is especially important for free offers and gambling merchants.
* Rarely, merchants can fail transactions if they suspect fraud.
If you think the merchant may have failed the transaction in error (which is quite rare), please submit a support ticket with all the details of the purchase (order number/reference number/membership number, date, product, price etc.) and also explaining why this shouldn't have been failed. We will immediately contact the merchant and request them to investigate, but please note that the merchants decision would be final.
Yes, provided that you use the link and the codes on eDealsUK and use the code as instructed.
Please note that merchants may not track the transactions to eDealsUK, and therefore you may not get paid if you use any discount or Voucher codes which you found elsewhere.
