Actually paid or just in the processing stage?

Did mine via 'Top CashBack'. The estimated date that the 60 actually becomes payable is the 31st of July!

Unfortunately I think these delays are often the case. I had a hotels.com transaction delay for over 3 months last year but did finally get it.

Be grateful. My longest outstanding Quidco is a Lufthansa transaction from last October which still hasn't paid.

Funnily enough, I have a Lufty from October too, along with 2x Hertz from over a year ago. They are all validated but unpaid.

Just sent a query and apparently there are 'delays with payment with these merchants due to their affiliate network being behind with their processing'.

Has anyone actually received their 20,000 MR Points just for 'spending' 500 to Paypal?

It often states on the front page that it has tracked - but if you check the actual transaction ie go to the month, open the drop down list - and check it may say under the status column:

XX Apr 2010 American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card 95.00 60.00 enquiry being processed

It has nothing to do with Singapore. That's just how the bit of code that is rendering your statement narratives is presenting it to you.

It's trying to extract country information form the last two characters of the string. The last two chars are SG, which is the ISO 2-digit CC for Singapore.

However, the last four digits are actually RBSG, or 'RBS Group' - the card account is with the Royal Bank of Scotland.

You often get this kind of thing happening with any 3rd party payments made using Paypal, regardless of the card network. Here you are paying RBSG through Paypal.

You may well still get it but can't complain if you don't.
Correct me if I'm wrong, it doesn't say it has to be wholly completed online. It just says: "for an approved and issued American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card".

My application wasn't approved online, and I have to wait 10 days also.

You'll find the generic Quidco T&C's discuss this:

"Why has my cashback been declined?
It is disappointing when your cashback is declined and there are various reasons why this might happen. These are listed below ....

■The purchase was not completed wholly online"

Not sure if posted before but Hotels.com gets the travel bonus (999pts for 333 spend), also validated next day on Quidco.
