Tips to Ensure You Get Your Cash Back


Retailers pay us commission for referring you (a shopper) to their stores; we keep some of it and pass the rest of the cash back to you.

Everything works smoothly if you visit Extrabux before you visit the store (and therefore before you've added any items to your shopping cart) and if you don't delete your cookies or click on any non-Extrabux links or use non-Extrabux coupon codes.

Make sure your shopping cart is empty when you click through to the store from Extrabux. Retailers track when you put items in your cart; we can only get cash back for you if you click through to the store from Extrabux without having any items in the store's cart.

Complete your purchase quickly. If you take too long to finish your shopping, the tracking cookies might have expired, which would prevent your order from referring back to Extrabux; we wouldn't be able to get cash back for you.

Click through to the store ONLY from Extrabux. Clicking through from other websites or typing the URL directly into your web browser without going through Extrabux may not result in cash back.

DON'T click on other links to go to an online store or click on pop-up ads while searching and shopping; doing so can mess up the cookies and your order may not track back to Extrabux, even if you clicked on the Extrabux link.

DON'T close the store website while shopping. If you do, you must click through from Extrabux again to start a new session. Also, make sure your shopping cart is empty when you click back to the store.

DON'T check out multiple times at an online store without clicking back through Extrabux. If you want to shop some more after checking out the first time, you must go back to Extrabux and click back through to the store again (even if you are ordering the same item at the same store).

DON'T use coupon codes that are posted on other websites. Stores track the codes you use and they won't give Extrabux the commission for your order if you use a code from somewhere else.

DON'T use coupons you get in emails from the store or other sources unless an identical coupon codes also posted on Extrabux. Stores sometimes use different codes in their own emails to customers, and those codes may not result in cash back.

DON'T use discounts from other sources including postal mail, blogs, employee discount or VIP programs, or for any other programs not posted on Extrabux.
