How do I earn Cashback Bonus®?
Is there a limit to the amount of Cashback Bonus I can earn?
You can earn 5% Cashback Bonus up to the quarterly maximum at different places each quarter like gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, Amazon.com, or wholesales clubs each time you activate. Activation is free and easy.
Individual promotions may include a cap on the additional Cashback Bonus that can be earned but there is no limit on the overall amount of Cashback Bonus that you can earn, and you always earn Cashback Bonus on every purchase.
How do I sign up for the 5% Cashback Bonus program?
What should I do if I have not received my 5% Cashback Bonus after making a category purchase?
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.
