EBATES Cash Back Program – The FAQ’s!
How quickly is cash back credited to my account?
Most cash back rewards are credited within 48 hours. Some stores, however, cannot confirm your purchase until the return period has elapsed and may take up to thirty days to confirm your cash back.
Still wondering about a purchase made more than 30 days ago that isn’t showing in your account summary? Contact Customer Service.
When do I get my cash back payment?
Every 3 months, we send you a cash back payment for purchases posted during the previous quarter based on the schedule below. But if you’ve earned less than $5.01 cash back, we’ll carry over your money to the next check. Bonus Rewards do not count toward the $5.01 minimum. The term “Bonus Rewards” includes monies earned as a Sign-up Reward or Tell-A-Friend Bonus.
Ebates offers several ways to receive payment and is constantly working on ways to pay you faster. Visit My Ebates to view your cash back setting or go to Cash Back Method to change your setting. Note that you must sign-in to change your cash back method.

Note: Ebates does not validate the tax-deductibility of donations that you send to charities. It is your sole responsibility to document donations and to determine that donations to an organization are tax-deductible.
