CashBack by SearchMan ("CashBack") offers a service that allows members to earn cash back on purchases made at millions of apps, websites and other digital storefronts. Joining and using CashBack is free and simple, requiring only your email address and a password to get started. CashBack does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and CashBack does not 'spam' its members. CashBack does not install or require you to install software on your computer. In other words, there is no 'catch'. CashBack receives a fee for referring buyers to affiliated apps and uses that fee to pay members cash back on their purchases.
Please read this complete member agreement ("Agreement") for full details on the CashBack Cash Back Shopping Program ("Program"). We think you will agree that CashBack offers the smartest way to shop online or in-app.
By enrolling as a member in the Program ("Member"), or by utilizing any of CashBack' shopping applications ("Applications"), you agree to be bound by this Agreement. Enrollment as a Member is simple: you must provide an email address so CashBack can inform you when money or other rewards are credited to your account. Members must be at least eighteen years old and agree not to use the Program for any illegal or fraudulent activity. Please be aware that participation in the Program and the opportunity to earn cash back are offered at the sole discretion of CashBack, and CashBack has the right to change this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.
Earning back a portion of your purchases as cash back ("Cash Back") is straightforward. Choose a app, product, coupon or other offer displayed on CashBack’s website or an CashBack application, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an affiliated app's app or website ("Affiliate app"), and complete a purchase to earn Cash Back on your net purchase amount. You may also earn Cash Back on purchases made 'in-app' at a limited number of apps by presenting an CashBack coupon at time of check out. Such apps and coupons are clearly identified on CashBack's website. Specific Cash Back amounts vary by app and product category and are provided in detail at CashBack's website. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.
Certain Affiliate apps exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the Program. CashBack does its best to minimize and maintain an up-to-date list of exclusions on CashBack's website. Additionally, to earn Cash Back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the CashBack link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by CashBack, your purchase might be associated with a service other than CashBack and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable 'cookies' on your computer or device you will not be able to earn Cash Back as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain Cash Back is assigned to the Member account.
CashBack periodically offers monetary bonuses or other rewards for sign-up in the Program, for referring other new Members, or for other specific actions. The terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from this Agreement. To qualify for a sign-up bonus payment, a new Member must establish an Active Account (defined below) and make minimum qualifying purchases within the prescribed number of days after becoming a Member. To qualify for a referral bonus, a Member must refer a new Member who establishes his or her own Active Account and makes his or her own minimum qualifying purchases within the prescribed number of days of becoming a Member. Please note that sign-up and referral bonuses are given for the purpose of attracting brand new Members to CashBack. An individual person is only eligible for one sign-up bonus and may earn only one referral bonus per individual person referred. To be sent a gift card bonus, Member must have a valid address in the United States or Canada only.
To receive payment of accrued Cash Back and any other rewards, you must establish and maintain an active account with CashBack ("Active Account") with the information necessary to process your payment: a valid email address at which you are able to receive email, a valid postal address at which you are able to receive mail, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your Active Account, you must update your information if it changes and have shopped via CashBack's website or a CashBack Application or have accrued Cash Back at any time within the last twelve (12) months.
CashBack pays its members accrued Cash Back and other rewards every month, at a minimum. CashBack pays members in U.S. dollars via Paypal and sometimes other payment options and currencies. Members may select or change their payment options in the section of CashBack's website related to a member’s account settings, balances, and payment preferences. If your check expires without being cashed or deposited or if it is returned to CashBack, it will be returned to your account, where it will be subject to inactive account maintenance charges described below. Each payment represents Cash Back and other rewards earned and accrued during the month which was 3 months ago, based on the schedule below.
