What should I do if I have not received my 5% Cashback Bonus after making a category purchase?

The 5% Cashback Bonus is generally posted to your account within 8 weeks.

If you did not receive your Cashback Bonus after making a category purchase, check the terms of the program. Because you earn 5% on category purchases up to the dollar amount of purchases specified in each program, make sure your purchase was in the correct category and your total purchases in the category have not exceeded the dollar amount specified for the that program.

Please also note the date of your category purchase and the date you signed up for the program as you will earn 5% beginning on the start date of the program you sign up for, whichever is later.

If you still have questions about the 5% bonus, contact Customer Service.
