Not for everyone but I'm very happy with my membership.

AdvantagesThe more you use the club the more you save.

DisadvantagesInitially it seems expensive to join.

"Most of the responses to this thread seem to come from people that are either not members or people that have not fully taken advantage of the Money Club's services. Like a gym membership, it won't do you any good if you don't use it and the benefits are not always instant. I joined after the club was recomended to me by a friend. Reading the comments they seem to be more about telephone sales than the club. Frankly I hate telemarketing. I made ..." Read review

Quick review of The Money Club

"Upon registering, I too called them to find a cheap insurance quote. They provided said quote as a photocopied standard document and tried to steer me towards buying the most expensive policy without fully answering all the standard insurance questions - what's the excess, is my laptop insured etc etc. Needless to say, I didn't take out the policy and found much cheaper, more comphehensive cover elsewhere! Upon cancelling my account with them, I called up and cancelled. A few months later, £120 is taken from my account by The Money Club. I call their line and my account is still open and cannot get a refund. It looks as though they palmed me off and then take my money - DO NOT TOUCH THEM! THEY LIE!!!

Quick review of The Money Club

"I was contacted by the money club and after telling the telly sales person that I have been a member in the past and have had no real benifits he continued to persist with how good the service was. As I explained that I had been getting better deals online he cut me off which I though was very rude and was very anoyed with the way they go around trying to sign people up. I would no join them even if they paid me too!!! Most of the time you get better deals on line and they are not at all helpful and I think they need to teach there telesales marketing team some manners.

Quick review of The Money Club

"Wow.. I'm amazed! I'm in my second year of being a member with the money club and i can't beleive they're getting bad reviews. I have always been a bit dubious of joining membership schemes (Gym membership.. now thats a scam!) but the money club really works. I just give them a call with my enquiry and they come back to me with the cheapest price.. its as simple as that! And if its after 6, then i use their website and still save money (I've just recieved a cheque for £153.75 for cash back that i've earned on my orders - Great xmas present). My advice would be to give them a try. I did and i'm still a member.

Don't Touch Them with a Barge Pole!!!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesWhere do I start???

"...reluctant to join up but the sales rep insisted it would make my life better (why do I not learn??!) and he promised that we could cancel via the telephone rather than having to write in. Of course, it turned out not to be the case! It has proved impossible to get my money back, I was told to write in person, I did, twice! Guess what - they never received the letters. The main woman I dealthwith was stunningly unprofessional and probably the most ..." Read review

Quick review of The Money Club

"I tried the money club on a satisfaction guarantee bases. To say the least I was not satisfied. This club promised great saving straight from the manufactures. When I questioned this on a camera I was after, I recieved what I term has cop out, excuses. I asked for my money to be refunded.of which I eventually got back after several e mails and numerous calls. The last one threatening them with both the trading standards and legal action. I would avoid this club if you respect holding on to your money. Try surfing its great fun.

The Money Club - Not Worth the Effort

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesExpensive membership fee

"After feeling pressured over the phone, I joined The Money Club. I felt that I could not put the phone down on them as they rang me at work. I was assured that the joining fee was a one-off payment and assumed that this was covered by the £~80 taken out of my account on the first day. What I was not told was that the payment came in two parts and that I would be charged again two months later; when I wrote to complain, they did not address my complaint ..." Read review

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesthe cost of membership, inability to realise claims on costs.

"...its because they don't have the time during the day to shop, and therefore they may want to talk to this club during the evening, unfortunately they close at 6.0pm! do I need to go on or do you get the picture, and one final thought, test this by looking at what they have on offer and then do your own research for the same thing. you WILL get a better deal, if however you cant its because they are offering you an exclusive product not available elsewhere, ..."
