Shopearns Cash Back Shopping Program
Shopearns.com (“Shopearns”) offers a service that allows members to earn cash back on purchases made at over 100 stores. Joining and using Shopearns is free and simple, requiring only your email address and a password to get started. Shopearns does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and Shopearns does not ‘spam’ its members. Shopearns does not install or require you to install software on your computer. In other words, there is no ‘catch’. Shopearns receives a fee for referring buyers to affiliated stores and uses that fee to pay members cash back on their purchases. Shopearns Inc.’s websites have paid members over 50 thousand in cash back since the inception of the company.
Please read this complete member agreement (“Agreement”) for full details on the Shopearns Cash Back Shopping Program (“Program”). We think you will agree that Shopearns offers the smartest way to shop online or in-store.
1.Becoming a Member
By enrolling as a member in the Program (“Member”), or by utilizing any of Shopearns’ shopping applications (“Applications”), you agree to be bound by this Agreement. Enrollment as a Member is simple: you must provide an email address so Shopearns 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 Shopearns, and Shopearns has the right to change this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.
2.Earning Cash Back
Earning back a portion of your purchases as cash back (“Cash Back”) is straightforward. Choose a store, product, coupon or other offer displayed on Shopearns.com, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an affiliated store’s website (“Affiliate Store”), and complete a purchase to earn Cash Back on your net purchase amount. Specific Cash Back amounts vary by store and product category and are provided in detail at Shopearns.com. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.
Certain Affiliate Stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the Program. Shopearns does its best to minimize and maintain an up-to-date list of exclusions on Shopearns.com. Additionally, to earn Cash Back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the Shopearns link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by Shopearns, your purchase might be associated with a service other than Shopearns and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable ‘cookies’ on your computer 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.
As a Shopearns member you can avail Cashback or a cash reward for making a purchase from various retailers listed on Shopearns.com. However, Shopearns can only provide cashback on genuine transactions which are successfully tracked and verified by the retailers. Once your transaction is successfully tracked and verified by the retailer, we get a commission form the retailer and we pass on this commision in the form of cashback onto you.
Please take into account that under certain conditions, your transaction may not get tracked or qualify for a cashback. Under any circumstances, we cannot be held responsible for the same. Retailers deem a transaction to be genuine or valid through their own set of rules. A transaction deemed as non-genuine or invalid by the retailer would not qualify for a cashback. For more information regarding these conditions,
Shopearns would always make the best efforts on its part to recover non payments and missing cashback from the retailers. In case, you made a genuine transaction and did not receive a cashback, you can make a claim by contacting our support. However, we reserve the right to stop chasing your cashback claim at any point and our decision will be final in this regard.
At times you may receive a lower amount in cashback than what you were expecting. This happens when retailer gives us an amount less than his original claim. In this case, you may raise a query and we would take it up with the retailer. Though, we reserve the right to close this enquiry claim if the retailer still does not pays in a period of six months.
Cashback may also be forfeited by Shopearns under the following circumstances :
a. In case the user is not logged in while transacting through Shopearns and we receive an unattributed cashback payment which is not associated with any user account.
b. In case the cashback is attributed to an account which is terminated
3.Earning Bonuses & Other Rewards
Shopearns periodically offers monetary bonuses or other rewards for sign-up in the Program, for referring other new Members, or for other specific actions.
