Maybe he's put it up in price so that when unsuspecting buyers go to have a look he can cut a few hundred quid off it and they think they have a deal.

I've just renewed the Z insurance with Hasting but instead of going down the Meerkat route and selling on Ebay I went through Quidco.

My quote was £229.40 and I will get £42.50 back through Quidco giving me a final price of £186.90

Is this a record low?
