It's so simple. Start shopping at Cashrewards and select a store or product. You will then be directly linked to your chosen store's normal website. Browse, shop and purchase exactly as usual on the stores website.

The store will advise us of your purchase and the amount of Cashback earned will appear in your account. You can view your account and be paid your Cashback simply by going to the My Rewards section of the website and clicking the Get Paid button.

Browse, shop and purchase exactly as usual on the stores website. There is no special code needed at the checkout unless you are taking advantage of a Cashrewards coupon code offer. We will update your rewards account with all eligible transactions, usually within 2 days from the date of your purchases.

If you have recently made an eligible purchase or transaction and can't see your rewards in your account don't worry. Rewards usually take around 2 – 7 days from date of purchase to be reported in your account as 'Pending'. Some stores however can take up to 30 days to report 'pending' transactions to your account.

Rewards will change from 'Pending' to 'Confirmed' and automatically become 'Available Cashback' when the return period of the goods has passed and/or the transaction is verified by the stores.

The length of time from 'Pending to Confirmed and Available' varies from store to store and can be anywhere from 7 days to 90 days. Some rewards however may take longer to be confirmed. Travel rewards for example may not become 'Available' until after you have completed your travel.

'Available' rewards are just that, confirmed and available. If your account has an available balance over $10.01 you can get paid at any time by going to 'Get Paid' from the 'My Account' section of the website.

Please be advised that once you have submitted or updated your existing bank account details you will need to wait 48 hours before submitting a payment request. Once requested, payments may take up to a maximum 5 business days to be processed.

This is extremely safe and does not result in any security issues for you or your computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personal information however it does allow us to relate any purchases you make from the links on the Cashrewards website back to your Cashrewards account.

Cookies can be turned on and off by you at any time in your web browser menu. However in order for us to be able to record your purchases and rewards, your browser must have ‘cookies’ enabled.

Another hint …interrupting your shopping session by closing the window, performing searches on other sites, clicking pop-ups, turning off cookies, visiting your social networking home page, and other sidetracks are examples of things to avoid that may mean that the recording process is disrupted and you may not receive your Cashback.

And importantly using coupons from any other source, other than those coupons listed on this site, may mean that your rewards will not be awarded.

'Pending' is the term for the rewards earned from your shopping that have not yet been confirmed as available and payable. Your transaction has been tracked by the store and your rewards are 'pending' prior to final confirmation from the store. Final confirmation is usually received after the return period of the goods or services has passed and/or the transaction is verified by the stores.

If you have recently made an eligible purchase or transaction and can't see your rewards in your account don't worry. Rewards usually take around between 2 – 7 days from date of purchase to be reported in your account as 'Pending'. Some stores however can take up to 30 days to report 'pending' transactions to your account.

Rewards will change from 'Pending' to 'pproved' and automatically become 'Available Cashback' when the return period of the goods has passed and/or the transaction is verified by the stores.

The length of time from 'Pending to Confirmed and Available' varies from merchant to merchant and can be anywhere from 7 days to 90 days. Some rewards however may take even longer to be confirmed. Travel rewards for example may not appear until after you have completed your travel.

'Available' rewards are just that, confirmed and available. If your account has an available balance over $10.01 you can get paid at any time by going to 'Get Paid' from the 'My Account' section of the website.

Please be advised that once you have submitted or updated your existing bank account details you will need to wait 48 hours before submitting a payment request. Once requested, payments may take up to a maximum 5 business days to be processed.

As advised, most stores will only pay Cashback on the purchase price excluding GST and shipping, delivery and any other such costs. This mostly explains why you can have a lower purchase amount reported and consequently receive a lower Cashback amount.

If your Cashback is still less than you believe is correct please submit a Cashback Enquiry.

Cashback usually takes around 2 days from the date of your purchase to be reported in your account as "Pending". Some merchants however may take up to 30 days to report transactions.

Please save your order confirmation or invoice from the store until your Cashback is posted to your account.

If you have followed all the Cashback guidelines such as linking directly to the store from the Cashrewards Go To Store buttons and only using coupon codes that are listed on the Cashrewards website and your transaction and rewards don’t appear in your account within 30 days of your purchase date, please submit an enquiry with your order confirmation or invoice and we will review our data and contact the store to determine what may have occurred.

Some stores however will not accept enquiries on transactions, that have not been automatically tracked or have been declined and in this case we will be unable to investigate further and will be unable to claim Cashback for you on transactions from these stores. Stores with a 'no enquiry policy' are displayed on the 'special terms' section on the store's page on the Cashrewards website.

Some retailers are not able to report the purchase price. Providing your Cashback has been reported correctly then the lack of purchase price details will not affect your Cashback balance.

If this is the case it usually means that the retailer has declined your Cashback for some reason. We are not usually informed of the reason why a retailer might decline a transaction – but common reasons are as follows:

•The purchase (or part of the order) has been returned or cancelled.
•Although the retailer has tracked your transaction they have decided that it didn’t qualify under their terms.
•A coupon code was used that was not listed on the Cashrewards website in which case rewards may not be payable.

If this has happened, and you cannot think of the reason why your Cashback has been declined, then the best thing to do is to submit a Cashback Enquiry. Some stores however will not accept enquiries on transactions, that have not been automatically tracked or have been declined and in this case we will be unable to investigate further and will be unable to claim Cashback for you on transactions from these stores. Stores with a 'no enquiry policy' are displayed on the 'special terms' section on the store's page on the Cashrewards website.

If it is over 60 days since your purchase, then we are unable to investigate your claim.

This is because, in our terms with stores we have agreed to only follow up on claims for purchases within the previous 60 days.

If, however, you wish to claim because your transaction has recently been disallowed or declined by the store (i.e. your Cashback has been declined or crossed out and replaced with zero) – but your purchase is now over 60 days old, then under our terms we are able to accept your claim and look into this on your behalf.If this is the case please submit a claim despite the purchase having occurred more than 60 days ago. Some stores however will not accept enquiries on transactions that have been declined and in this case we will be unable to investigate further and will be unable to claim Cashback for you on transactions from these stores. Stores with a 'no enquiry policy' are displayed on the 'special terms' section on the store's page on the Cashrewards website.

Please use the Contact Us form on the website. We will respond to your enquiry within 2 business days.

Currency rates are updated daily from published bank exchange rates and include foreign exchange fees. These rates are used to convert your international currency rewards to Australian dollar rewards when they are first displayed in the your account. Providing the foreign amount is not subsequently adjusted by the store the initial conversion amount will be final as per the date of the transaction. If however the store subsequently adjusts the transaction amount the current exchange rate on the date of the adjustment will be used to redetermine the Australian dollar conversion amount.
