What can go wrong with cashback?

  • Cashback will not track, this can be due to several reasons. To avoid make sure you clear your internet cookies before buying anything via a cashback website.
  • Cashback gets declined by the retailer. Make sure you read the terms and conditions for each retailer, some will only offer cashback on certain items/orders. These will track on the system but then will be cancelled later on.
  • Retailers are sometimes slow. You can wait up to 3 months for payment, because someone somewhere isn’t doing their job quick enough. Contact the cashback site if you’re waiting 2 months or more.

Are there any tricks?
