    A word of warning to those trying to get this deal. I applied for a vodafone plan last year throguh the Buckscoop link thinking that I would be able to get the buckscoop cashback, however no cashback was applied.

    I even raised a ticket and contacted customer service but buckscoop just closed the ticket without offering me an explanation.

    Just be aware that there is a risk that you will NOT get your cashback and take it into consideration.
  • bigal2011/12/10 12:21:28
    and for those that has no problems following the instructions provided by Vodafone4, I can attest to the fact that you do get your money back if nothing goes wrong.

    had received the cashback for the Nexus S from May, and previously from Three. so, just make sure your tracking's working.
  • queenshrew2011/12/10 12:46:21
    I too have received in total 5 cashbacks from Buckscoop for Three and Vodafone.

    4 were with Three (3 prepaid mobile data modems and 1 postpaid mobile plan)
    1 with Vodafone (prepaid mobile phone) - best deal ever, phone was $99 and I got paid $84 via Buckscoop -- sadly they now only pay 10% for prepaid mobile phones.

    I always make sure I am logged in properly and my clicks track. If you have trouble, please read: http://www.buckscoop.com.au/help/
  • fileshare2011/12/10 13:21:10
    Wooo... Does this include $19 plan? $19 for nexus s. So I pay 19*12 -200 = $28. Then I get a phone and 12 month phone call credit? Is this the case? Unbelievable... ...

    My bad, need to have another 29*12 = $348 on this. So totally $376 for Nexus s with 2 years call.
  • bigal2011/12/10 13:29:16
    does the extra 10% off for existing account holders stack on top of the $200 off?

    I'm thinking it's risky using discount codes, as your cashback could be rejected by Vodafone.

    However, maybe nod or admin can shed more light into this.

    Personally, I would avoid using any codes to make sure my $200 cashback is properly paid out (doubt any codes you could find online would be anywhere close to the $200 cashback!) ;D
  • joseph78782011/12/11 20:12:18

  • magichands2011/12/12 00:53:23
    Hi all, excuse me for not knowing, but how do we claim the 200 cashback? I see a link to Vodaphone website but there isnt any information there.. I'm nervous seeing as a few people are mentioning they previous have not been given the cash back offers.. :-(
  • magichands2011/12/12 01:29:01
    Ok, so people also keep mentioning to check that my clicks are tracked. What the heck does that mean? lol. I've read through the help, installed a dedicated browser (slimbrowser was suggested by buckscoop) but I don't see any methods of confirming that things are being tracked.. Help :-(
  • joseph78782011/12/12 02:09:58
    so do we need any particular browser to complete the $200 deal transaction with vodafone? if so which browser is the best to avail this deal?
    please anyone write here to understand the processand complete the purchase? the help and further informations is much appreciated..

    cheers
  • queenshrew2011/12/12 08:00:01
    Hello and welcome to all the new users :)

    First of all, make sure you are logged in and TICK the [COLOR="DarkRed"]remember[/COLOR] box that enables auto login as I found it makes my life a whole lot easier and helps my cashback trackings go smoothly.

    [COLOR="Indigo"]How do I check if my clicks are registering?[/COLOR]
    The easiest way I have found to see if my clicks are registering is to go into:
    http://www.buckscoop.com.au/new-enquiry/
    (This is also the place to submit an enquiry if after a few days your earnings has still not shown up in your earnings tab)

    Select the merchant in the drop down menu (in this instance, Vodafone Mobile Handsets)
    And you will see all the times you have clicked and it was tracked...!

    Also, make sure you have cookies enabled as that is how it tracks your session (for cashback) until you have checked through and made your purchase.

    It sometimes takes a day or two for your transaction to show up in your earnings tab here:

    Hope this helps! :)

    If you have any other questions, please post and I'm sure one of the more seasoned members or a mod will answer your question as soon as possible!


    p.s. I used to use firefox but now I use google chrome (both track fine for me, but my firefox started crashing a lot when I browse (wish they would fix it) so I have retired it...)
  • wyzshen2011/12/12 09:35:28
    Hey all,

    I just joined - mainly because of this deal as it sounded too good to be true!

    I just called Vodafone to ask if they knew anything about this deal and their sales department said they have no knowledge of any $200 cashback via buckscoop.

    Can someone explain to me how this cashback works?

    Cheers!


    EDIT:

    I have just read the threads:
    new buckscooper (http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/showthread.php?t=10682)
    ensure buckscoop cashback (http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/showthread.php?t=2285)

    So my conclusion is that this is a buckscoop cashback and not offered by vodafone as an official deal - hence why I could not get the sales rep to give me info on it.

    I will follow the instructions and see how it goes!

    Should have done my research first :P but I was too excited!
  • bt342011/12/12 10:45:01
    If you have firewall, pop-up or ad-blocks, disable them before you click on the links.
    Pretty much disable anything that makes your internet safe. :whistling: :p

    I use different browsers for buckscoop purchases and for general internet usage.
    I use IE with low security setting for buckscoop and Firefox running ad-block, flash-block, pop-up blockers etc. Sometimes I forget, and use Firefox and it still tracks fine. :flowers:

    Make sure you COMPLETE your transaction online.
    If you change your mind during a transaction, clear your cookies and click the link from buckscoop again.
  • joseph78782011/12/12 12:14:12
    hi, thanks for the explanation. i will follow this and give it a go...

    cheers..
  • betaman2011/12/12 12:56:47
    So HTC Desire Z is the cheapest? $160 after cash back?
  • bigal2011/12/12 15:48:53
    I signed up to vodafone earlier in the year (May) with a Nexus S and received my cashback for that already. If I sign up for another plan now and login to my existing account on the vondafone website, will they still pay the $200 cash back?
  • Donkey2011/12/12 20:27:25
    If its a postpaid + handset plan there shouldnt be an issue with it needing to be a new vodafone account bigal but I'll double check.
  • AzzaD2011/12/13 08:10:52

    Be patient =) Sometimes mine takes quite a few days before it shows up as 'tracked' on my earnings page.
    Depends on the merchant too...

    ok, will do, my dick smith one showed up a lot faster the other day which is why I was getting worried
  • fileshare2011/12/14 16:44:11
    I also signed up the HTC Desire Z on 12th. Still not my earnings. However, I went through to Vodafone and browsed from buckscoop on 11th, but didn't sign any phone. The 11th operation shows as my earnings. Not sure what is going on.
  • kangtacai2011/12/14 22:30:54
    I am an existing customer with voda and I have signed up the galaxy nexus plan and they kept my original number. So my plan is an upgrade to my existing plan. However my transaction is tracked. Is that means I will get my 200 cash back? Please advice cheers
  • pxwee52011/12/15 00:16:31
    Signed up on Monday night. Still not tracked yet.

    Anybody got their plan tracked?
  • Bargrin2011/12/15 01:48:08
    After signing in I click on the buckscoop cashback link for Vodafone and it takes me to Vodafone but the RAC partner site, where RAC give you 10% off for being RAC member.

    As its taking me to the RAC partner site does that mean the Buckscoop affliate link / tracking link is being over ridden by RAC and wont be getting me $200 cashback ?

    I am guessing I have to clear cookies in browser and do again, I thought maybe I could stack up cashback with RAC 10% off deal as well.

    This is where it takes me after clicking Buckscoop link:

    I think you need to clear your cookies.

    When I click on my Buckscoop link, it takes me to the normal Vodafone page.

    I am also pretty sure that with the 10% RAC discount, you will not get any Buckscoop cashback, as the sale will be listed as linked to RAC instead and not Buckscoop :(

    Signed up on Monday night. Still not tracked yet.

    Anybody got their plan tracked?


    I still haven't purchased my phone yet as I still couldn't decide between an iphone 4s or an android! (I had an original iphone but moved to android, but thinking of going back to Apple as I sold my Samsung Galaxy SII to dad, and am using my 'old' HTC desire that's driving me nuts with the lack of space on its hard drive!) - Thus I can't comment about how many days it takes to turn up as tracked in the Earnings Tab. Hopefully someone else will answer this soon.

    In the mean time, am keeping my fingers crossed that Vodafone doesn't decide to pull the $200 cashback earlier than the planned date as I have trouble deciding...

    I bought it on the 10th and tracked on the 10th.
  • queenshrew2011/12/16 11:13:40
    Well, I just put my order through. Let's see how long it takes to 'track' my transaction :)
  • queenshrew2011/12/16 12:42:00
    Just listed as 'tracked' when I checked just then -> $200
  • minacaeks2011/12/16 14:37:50
    hmmm, so going by the special that's on at the moment.. $29 for the samsung galaxy s2 over 24 months..
    total cost over 24 months is $696
    my friend has a f&f code i can use, which takes off $10 from the total each month, bringing it down to $19 a month. total then is $456 over 24 months.
    sign up through buckscoop, and get back $200.

    so the phone will be $256, or even less, depending on when vodafone pays up the $200!


    i got that all right...right?
  • kickling2011/12/16 15:47:26
    Minacaeks - Usually you can only use the one deal, and in most cases if you use a coupon code you will forfeit your chance of cashback, but I think NOD is finding out something for another member in regards to stacking this deal....
  • pxwee52011/12/16 16:21:27
    I got my phone. But still not tracked yet :(
  • ichiban2011/12/16 16:25:28
    How long does it take for Vodafone to process your order? I've ordered the Galaxy Nexus through the presale page (via the Buckscoop deal link) on the 13th December, but my order status is still 'processing'.

    I'd call up customer support to follow up, but I'm worried that my order would be processed as a telephone sale and I'd miss out on the cashback.
  • queenshrew2011/12/16 23:13:44
    If your phone still hasn't tracked after a couple of weeks or so, I would definitely submit a query through Buckscoop and Nod could probably chase it up for you. Do not just do nothing as Vodafone will refuse to look into transactions that are older than a couple of months(I think 3 months is the limit for most merchants, but some merchants may have shorter cut offs?) In which case, Nod can do nothing about it as Vodafone will not investigate nor pay up.

    Anyway, going by Vodafone's statistics - I would submit a query earlier rather than later..
    Vodafone statistics:
    Tracking Speed
    Fast (0 - 4 days,
    0 day average

    Tracking Reliability
    High (97% tracked,
    3% enquiries of which
    80% successful so far)

    Payment Speed
    Slow (3 month avg)

    ---
    Ichiban - If it is processing then I would try and wait a little longer patiently. I'm thinking it might take a bit longer to process given the Galaxy Nexus has just been released and is listed as the #2 most popular phone on the Vodafone website plus it is also the jolly season!
  • Bargrin2011/12/17 04:21:33
    Is it true the $200 cash back is only for new customers and not existing ?
  • queenshrew2011/12/17 04:34:45

    To be honest, (personally) I don't see why existing customers can't get the cashback too if you follow through and purchase. It does not say new customers only and when I was purchasing my 3 phones/mobile broadband, I signed up as an existing customer and linked all my purchases and I still got the full cashback (but this was with 3 when 3 was still a cashback merchant). I have only purchased a prepaid from Vodafone in the past and I threw out the sim card that came with the prepaid so I signed up this time as a new customer.

    However, if you are worried I would wait and see what admin or nod has to say as I think they are checking with Vodafone to confirm?
  • Bargrin2011/12/17 13:34:50
    Its just that on ozbargain, Moneybackco rep says its only for new customers, but he might be wrong ?
  • queenshrew2011/12/17 15:25:06
    Bargrin, I don't use Moneyback co so I don't know what are their requirements.

    But as far as I can see on Buckscoop, it doesn't say anywhere that you have to be a new customer.
    Just that you can't stack discounts.

    But I am not privvy to how *exactly* Vodafone approve cashbacks, and can only speak from experience (and I do shop a lot via buckscoop - whether that's good or bad I'm not sure lol)..

    If you're worried (and it sounds like you are), I would just wait for nod or admin for confirmation. :)
  • Bargrin2011/12/18 03:33:32
    I want to get that HTC Desire Z which ends in 2 days....do I take a leap of faith??? :?
  • queenshrew2011/12/18 10:56:56
    If it is me, I would! lol :p

    But then again I wouldn't live up to my nickname "shopping queen" if I don't hehe

    Honestly, nod and admin should be around the forums on Monday so if I am you, I would hold tight for one more day and see what they say..!

    Has not tracked yet but will give it a day.

    1 week already and not tracked yet. Who should I contact?
  • minacaeks2011/12/19 11:57:45
    Just called Vodafone to ask them something, and the sales rep I spoke to said he'd be happy to apply the $200 over the phone! =D
    He just asked for the website, and said no dramas. However, gotta check coverage first.
  • Bargrin2011/12/19 14:36:24
    That sounds good, would you have name of person you spoke to?

    I am very keen to order phone in 24hrs.

    No confirmation from mods as per other queries?
  • minacaeks2011/12/19 15:43:00
    Bargain, unfortunately not!
    I'm grabbing a $2 sim to try out the reception in my area first and will be calling them in the next few hours. i'll report back with whats happening.
