Reclaim PPI Against Catalogue Accounts

Reclaim PPI Against Catalogue Accounts

If you ever shopped via catalogues in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, there’s a good chance that you had a PPI policy to go with your account. If this is the case, Beat the Banks would like to have a chat with you. We’ve helped a considerable number of consumers in recent times who had Payment Protection Insurance with their catalogue agreements, and we can do the same for you. All you have to do is call 0800 193 1234 to find out more.

During the credit boom, banks, building societies and other credit providers sold PPI on a massive scale, and in far too many cases the policies themselves were of little or no use whatsoever. Consumers, keen to make sure they had protection in place should anything go wrong, signed on the dotted line in the belief that they now had the peace of mind they craved.

While many people now tend to think of the PPI scandal in terms of banks and credit card providers, it’s worth noting that a number of catalogue companies decided to get on the gravy train as well. Famous retail names such as Freemans and Littlewoods offered a tempting escape from the traditional way we shopped for consumer goods, and this proved popular with millions.

Get the latest things now and pay for them later

Instead of saving months or even years for the latest fashions, the best furniture and the most technologically advanced domestic appliances, we could simply have the products now and pay for them in regular instalments instead. It all seemed so simple and so convenient, and we were generally happy to pay a little more for the privilege.

The catalogue companies introduced PPI policies as a way of increasing their income and boosting their profits. This add-on was a very effective money-spinner, and the fact that you may not have even needed it didn’t seem to matter at all. The more customers that said yes to PPI, the higher the profits became and the happier the owners, directors and shareholders would get.

Beat the Banks can help you get the compensation you deserve from the catalogue providers. Unlike other claims management companies, we don’t just ask for the basic information before making a claim that resembles little more than a stab in the dark and the hope of a quick win. We ask for all the facts, dating back many years, before submitting a comprehensive claim based on the bigger picture.

It may be that it’s now many years since you ever bought anything from a catalogue, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the possibility of compensation. The catalogue providers should not be allowed to get away with that they did in the past, and that’s why Beat the Banks will continue to fight for the consumer’s rights up until PPI deadline day and beyond.

If you even slightly suspect that you may have a case, why not get in touch today? We’re available now on 0800 193 1234 and we’re very much looking forward to hearing from you.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

    “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

    “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
