    Claimed a 'Luke Skywalker' meerkat in early August.

    It is long overdue now and no communication from comparethemarket.

    Also noticed that they have changed the specials to Beauty and the Beast.

    So contacted them using facebook messenger. They told me that there was a shortage but they were making more but couldn't say when. They then suggested that I could choose a different meerkat (I don't want to). Finally they guaranteed that I would get the Luke Skywalker but they couldn't say when.

    So another month has passed and no change.

    Again they have said that I would definitely get it but they don't know when.

    So lots of nice positive guarantees but it doesn't quite feel right, feels more like they are just saying whatever I want to hear to fob me off.

    Anyone else waiting for Star Wars meerkats?

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    Don’t ever use Quidco and expect cash back in a reasonable timeframe you may have a irretrievable meltdown....

    Agree, but what has that got to do with meerkats.

    However, the annoying thing here is that I considered going for £45 topcashback but in this case I decided to go for a guaranteed outcome - or so I thought.

    Cheers,

    I picked mine in late September and still waiting. To be honest I'm not bothered if it comes or not. This thread only reminded me as I'd forgotton.
