greasypalm used to be good until about a year or so ago. Since then they make big claims, and none of the merchants pay, or the transactions are reversed. Even William Hill reversed a big transaction. Then they have some merchants who say they will give cahsback for filling out a form, but it never happens. So I have stopped making any purchases with them, and I stick to topcashback (read more)

Having been a member for a few years I had often been told that when cash back had not been added that they could not trace my cash back and the retailer would not pay. In November I was waiting for £50 cash back from an energy retailer, when the cash back was reveresed I was informed that the energy retailer did not pay them and therefore it was reveresed, I found this strange as I had signed up to the energy provider and my supply was in place and had been for a few months, I wrote...

I totally agree with the people who have said it used to ok but now is no good. I have also received payouts in the past, but did not receive a payment of 40 pounds from a casino website and now have about 15 pending transactions from over a year ago, cashbackshopper much better! (read more)

I joined GreasyPalm many years ago and found them a fairly good company. I received a few payments from them but also a few reversals for which there was no explanation. This year an offer for Ladbrokes looked attractive and I had to join Ladbrokes and deposit £20 to received a further £20 cashback. After many months of sending tickets and receiving no replies I was surprised that the next time I tried to login my user name and password was not recognised. I know I had the correct user...

I have used Greasy Palm since 2008 and have had numerous problems but have always been paid until the August 1st 2011 payment run. The bacs payment I should of received is showing as being paid but has not and despite numerous emails and promisess that the money will be in my account it has still not been credited. I have been using this site as a way of saving, rather naively and spending on things I would not of usually spent money on just because it had high cashback incentives bingo,... (read more)

have been a member for a while. Had a few cashbacks not received as they say not tracked correcly. Not a big problem as they weren't great deals of money and had more paid than owed. used think it was worthwhile doing. THAT ALL CHANGED.
They owe me over £100. My account showed that the money was transfered by BACS two months ago, this money has never been paid into my account, Have submitted tickets but they are just in queue, never get replied to. Have sent a letter - still no reply.... (read more)

I have used them for about 3 years and had no problems at all UNTIL about a year ago. I have had payments 'reversed' for no reason and many many cashbacks which just stay 'pending'.
Like the other reviews say, you cannot contact them, only by 'submitting a ticket' which they just ignore. I currently have 7 outstanding.
THEY ARE COMPLETE COWBOYS. AVOID! I have now started using Quidco.co.uk and not only is theie cashback rates much better but it is simply a more professional site.... (read more)

Greasy Palm are thieving scum. I first used them a few years back & used to receive payouts with fairly few problems & quick responses to queries. Now however I have £50 validated that I have been waiting 3 months for, every month I am included in the next payout but when it comes to the day nothing is paid & the site states I am to be in the next payout. There is no way to contact them about this! I tried replying to one of thier many spam emails about this & sending feedback but have... (read more)

I've been a member for over a year and find the cash back is not as generous as other sites I use. I am struggling to get to minimum amount to be paid. I have one transaction for 140.00 which was reversed on the day it was due--Thanks Kwikfit. There is no reason for this except as an excuse not to pay me. I have written 2 honest reviews on their site which have not been published. I regret ever using them. (read more)

My £70 cashback for purchasing house insurance never materialized and has now been 'reversed', i.e. withdrawn, for no apparent reason. Like many others, I am starting to think that this is just a scam site and would advise people to avoid them. (read more)

Unfortunately large purchases dont show up in your account and when you submit a ticket you wait and wait onlt to be told they cannot trace the transaction. I just purchased a washing machine, credit card and a mobile phone but these transaction never showed up, however the daily cashback for visiting a comparision site (2p), no problem ???.
At one point i got so frustrated i contacted trading standards. The only people making real money is Greasypalm.
Pending transactions sometimes do... (read more)

These people are basically out to make money for themselves at your expense. Any large value cashbacks invariably never show up or ar "reversed" just before payment is due. Go to Topcashback, payouts are better and they are reliable and honest, unlike this lot. (read more)

More than two months has gone by, and I still have not received an answer to a tracking query I raised with Greasy Palm - simple straight-forward query, but evidently beyond the brains behind the website. Equally, I opened several accounts with cashback sites at the same time, and the cashback site you need to pay for has already paid over £20 into my bank account, Greasy Palm are not even admitting to having received payment by any of the sites from whom I purchased through them...which...

I too have found that more and more payments have been rejected on the grounds that the retailer has not paid them. So far my losses through this run at over £80. The last payment we were due failed to reach the bank on two consecutive months, but finally did so on the third occasion after I complained yet again. I have now moved my business to another site.

I purchased insurance throught greasy palm. After waiting for the cash back to appear on my account for nearly 2 months I posted a ticket with them. Had to chase for a reply on the status of it to only be told that the company I had purchased the insurance from would not pay and they couldnt do anything about it. Was not impressed as I recommended them to a friend who also had the same problem. (read more)
