Terms of Use

Dotrebate.com offers a Cash Back Shopping Service that allows its Members to receive Quarterly Cash Back Payouts on Qualifying Purchases at any of our Partner Sites.

Here's how it works. When a Dotrebate.com Member makes a Qualifying Purchase (defined in Section 4) from one of our Partner Sites, Dotrebate.com receives a Commission Fee from the Partner Site for referring the Member. Dotrebate.com then posts a portion of that fee into the Member's Account in the form of a Shopping Credit. Each Quarter, the Member will receive a Quarterly Cash Back Payout for all of the Shopping Credits that were posted to his or her Member Account during the preceding Purchase Period.

4. Qualifying Purchases

A Qualifying Purchase is a purchase made by a Member on one of our Partner Sites that meets the following criteria:

  • The purchase must have originated from a visit to Dotrebate.com or one of its communications or applications;
  • The purchase must occur during an Uninterrupted Shopping Session (defined in Section 5);
  • Dotrebate.com must receive a Transaction Report from the Partner Site confirming that the purchase was made; and
  • Dotrebate.com must receive a Commission Fee payment from the Partner Site for that purchase.

5. Earning Quarterly Cash Back Payouts

To earn Quarterly Cash Back Payouts on Qualifying Purchases, you must:

  • Make sure you enable your computer to receive cookies, which Dotrebate.com and our Partner Sites use to authenticate and identify Qualifying Purchases made by Dotrebate.com Members that originated from our website;
  • Select a store, product, or other offer displayed on Dotrebate.com or within any of our communications or applications;
  • Click the accompanying link, which will redirect you to a Partner Site; and
  • Complete your purchase on the Partner Site during an Uninterrupted Shopping Session, without navigating away from the Partner Site page to which you were redirected after clicking its link on our website.
  • After you complete your Qualifying Purchase, Dotrebate.com will receive a Transaction Report from the Partner Site, and Shopping Credits will then be posted to your Member Account.
  • After Dotrebate.com receives the Commission Fee payment from our Partner Site that corresponds with your Shopping Credits, you will receive your Cash Back Payout on the next Quarterly Payout Date, provided the balance in your Member Account is or exceeds the $5.01 Minimum Quarterly Payout Amount.

Please note that Shopping Credits can't be posted to your Member Account unless your Qualifying Purchase occurs during an Uninterrupted Shopping Session - which means that you need to complete your shopping transaction at our Partner Site right after you're redirected there by the link on Dotrebate.com, without navigating away to check your email or visiting any other sites or pages before you complete your shopping transaction. Any navigation interruptions could result in our Partner Site not being able to recognize your purchase as having originated from Dotrebate.com.

We calculate the Shopping Credits that we post to your Member Account for each Qualifying Purchase based on:

  • The Net Purchase Amount, which does not include taxes, fees, shipping costs, gift wrap costs, discounts, credits, returns, exchanges cancellations, or extended warranties; and
  • The Cash Back Percentage Rate posted on Dotrebate.com or within any of our communications or applications pertaining to Qualifying Purchases made at each Partner Site.

6. Additional Shopping Credit and Payout Limitations

Specific Cash Back Percentage Rates vary for each Partner Site, and certain Partner Sites may exclude specific brands, products, and/or classes of products from the Cash Back Shopping Service. Information pertaining Cash Back Percentage Rates applicable for each Partner Site, along with any applicable excluded brands, products, and/or classes of products, are posted on Dotrebate.com and on our Exclusions & Limitations page.

We do our best to keep these exclusions and limitations to minimum, and we make every possible effort to keep this information and our list of Exclusions & Limitations up-to-date and accurate.

However, Dotrebate.com is not responsible for changes to, or the discontinuance of, any special offer or coupon code offered by our Partner Sites, nor are we responsible for a Partner Site's withdrawal, in whole or in part, from participation in the Cash Back Shopping Service.

It is your responsibility to keep track of your Dotrebate.com purchases, and to check your Member Account to confirm that the corresponding Shopping Credits have been posted. If you have reason to believe that Shopping Credits haven't been correctly posted to your Member Account, you must contact Dotrebate.com Customer Service within 90 days of the purchase in question.

Final determinations pertaining to Qualifying Purchases, the posting of Shopping and Bonus Credits, and the issuance of Quarterly Payouts are at the sole discretion of Dotrebate.com.

If you disagree with the amount of any Shopping or Bonus Credits posted to your Member Account, with determinations or adjustments made to your Member Account, or the amount of any Quarterly Payouts issued to you, your sole remedy is to withdraw from the Cash Back Shopping Service by terminating your Member Account.

In order to guarantee that you receive your Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payments from Dotrebate.com on time, please be sure to keep the following information completely updated in your Member Account:

  • A functional email address at which you are capable of receiving email;
  • Your postal address, which must be capable of receiving direct mail from Dotrebate.com;
  • Your first and last name; and
  • Your Payout Method Preferences.

Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payouts are made in US Dollars, and you can select and/or change your Payout Method Preferences at any time by logging into your Member Account. Dotrebate.com currently offers you the option of receiving your Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payments either by check or via PayPal.

7. Returns and Cancellations

Returns and cancellations are subject to the policies of the Partner Site where you made your purchase.

If you choose to return or cancel an order, you are no longer eligible for cash back on that order, and we have to reverse any cash back earned from that purchase.

Exchanges will also reverse your cash back for that order, since the process of an exchange usually involves the Partner Site cancelling your old order and replacing it with a new order - and the new order didn't begin with you clicking on a Dotrebate.com link, so that means it won't be eligible for cash back.

8. Earning New Member Sign-Up and New Member Referral Bonus Credits

Dotrebate.com awards New Member Sign-Up Bonus Credits when a new member signs up, provided the conditions below are met. We also award New Member Referral Bonus Credits when a Member refers a friend to Dotrebate.com, provided the conditions below are met. We offer these bonuses to incentivize First Time Users of Dotrebate.com to become Members and participate in the Cash Back Shopping Service, such that one individual person can only be eligible for one New Member Sign-Up Bonus, and can only earn one New Member Referral Bonus per individual person referred.

To qualify for a New Member Sign-Up Bonus, you must:

  • Be a First Time User of Dotrebate.com, meaning that you have never created a Dotrebate.com Member Account in the past;
  • Sign up for a Member Account; and
  • Within 90 days of creating your Member Account, make at least $25.00 total in Qualifying Purchases.
  • If and when these conditions are met, a $5.00 New Member Sign-Up Bonus Credit will be posted to your Member Account.

To qualify for a New Member Referral Bonus, you must:

  • Have an Active Account, which means that you've used your Dotrebate.com account to make at least one Qualifying Purchase in the past 12 months;
  • Refer a New Member, who must be a First Time User of Dotrebate.com, and he or she must sign up for a Member Account; and
  • Within 90 days of creating his or her Member Account, the New Member must make at least $25.00 total in Qualifying Purchases.
  • If and when these conditions are met, a $5.00 New Member Referral Bonus Credit will be posted to your Member Account.

9. Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payout Schedule

Dotrebate.com issues Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payments to Members pursuant to the Quarterly Payout Schedule. Each Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payout represents the total dollar amount of Shopping and Bonus Credits that were posted to your Member Account during the preceding three-month Purchase Period.

Purchase Period Payment Date
Jan 1 - Mar 31 May 15
Apr 1 - June 30 Aug 15
July 1 - Sept 30 Nov 15
Oct 1 - Dec 31 Feb 15

By way of example, if Shopping Credits for Qualifying Purchases were posted to your Member Account on January 17, February 11, and March 3, you would receive your Quarterly Cash Back Payout for those Qualifying Purchases on the May 15 Quarterly Cash Back Payout Date.

Dotrebate.com makes every possible effort to adhere to the Quarterly Payout Schedule, and to ensure that Partner Sites provide us with timely Transaction Reports and Commission Fee payments. However, Dotrebate.com has no obligation to post Shopping Credits to your Member Account until we receive a Transaction Report reflecting a Qualifying Purchase from the Partner Site where your purchase was made, nor do we have an obligation to issue a Quarterly Cash Back Payout to you until we receive the corresponding Commission Fee payment from the Partner Site where your Qualifying Purchase was made. If a Partner Site fails to Report a Transaction or issue a Commission Fee payment to Dotrebate.com for a purchase made by you, Dotrebate.com will not post a Shopping Credit or issue a Quarterly Payout to you for that purchase.

In the event that Dotrebate.com experiences delayed Transaction Reporting and/or Commission Fee payments from any of our Partner Sites, this could delay the posting of Shopping Credits to your Member Account or the issuance of Quarterly Payouts of those credits by a minimum of one Quarterly Pay Cycle. Dotrebate.com reserves the right to delay the posting of Shopping Credits and/or the issuance of Quarterly Payouts to the extent that one of our Partner Sites makes changes to its Transaction Reporting or Commission Fee payment schedules.

10. Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payout Minimums

The Minimum Quarterly Cash Back and Bonus Payout amount is $5.01.

Dotrebate.com will not issue a Quarterly Payout to you if your Member Account balance contains less than $5.01 in Shopping and/or Bonus Credits on any given Quarterly Payout Date. However, these Shopping and/or Bonus Credits will remain in your Member Account and will be issued to you on a subsequent Quarterly Cash Payout Date when you have accrued Shopping and/or Bonus Credits that meet or exceed the $5.01 minimum.

11. Accessing, Changing, and Securing Your Member Account Information

You can review or change your Member Account information, along with your Communication Preferences and Preferred Payout Method, by signing into your Member Account on Dotrebate.com.

You can also check your Shopping and Bonus Credit balance and your Payout History at any time by signing into your Member Account.

Dotrebate.com is not responsible for lost or stolen Quarterly Payouts, nor are we responsible for Quarterly Payouts delivered to the wrong postal address or PayPal account through no fault of Dotrebate.com. In addition, we are not responsible for payment errors made through no fault of Dotrebate.com by any third party payment provider that issues Payouts on our behalf.

Your Member Account email address must be active and functional, because Dotrebate.com will use your Member Account email address to communicate with you about the Cash Back Shopping Service. It is your responsibility to make sure that your Member Account email address is functional, and to check it periodically for Essential Membership Emails from Dotrebate.com. Dotrebate.com is not responsible for issuing payments to you if we are unable to communicate with you due to your failure to maintain a functional, active Member Account email address.

It is essential that you keep your Member Account and password secure and protected, and it is your responsibility to do so. Please select a strong password and ensure that it cannot be accessed by others.

In addition, always be sure to log off when accessing your Member Account or when making purchases on a shared computer. Dotrebate.com is entitled to act on instructions received from your Member Account, and will not be held not liable for any actions taken by persons who sign into your Member Account without authorization.

12. Accessing, Changing, and Securing Your Member Account Information

You may terminate your Member Account at any time, subject to the following conditions:

  • If the total balance of your Shopping and Bonus Credits meets or exceeds the Quarterly Payout Minimum of $5.01 when you terminate your Member Account, you will receive a final Quarterly Payout on the first Quarterly Payout Date that occurs following your termination.
  • If the total balance of your Shopping and Bonus Credits is less than the Quarterly Payout Minimum of $5.01 when you terminate your Member Account, you will not receive a final Quarterly Payout, and Dotrebate.com will retain your Shopping and Bonus Credits as a Service Charge. If your total Shopping and Bonus Credit balance is less than $5.01 when you terminate your Member Account, then your termination constitutes consent to Dotrebate.com's forfeiture of such balance.

13. Termination of an Account By Dotrebate.com Due to 12 Consecutive Months of Inactivity

If you do not make any Qualifying Purchases for 12 consecutive months, Dotrebate.com will provide you with notice, via email, that your Account is Inactive, and we will terminate your Member Account for Inactivity unless you make at least one Qualifying Purchase within 30 days of receiving such notice, subject to the following additional conditions:

  • In the unlikely event that the total balance of your Shopping and Bonus Credits meets or exceeds the Quarterly Payout Minimum of $5.01 when your Member Account is terminated by Dotrebate.com due to Inactivity, you will receive a final Quarterly Payout on the first Quarterly Payout Date that occurs following such termination.
  • If the total balance of your Shopping and Bonus Credits is less than the Quarterly Payout Minimum of $5.01 when your Member Account is terminated by Dotrebate.com due to Inactivity, you will not receive a final Quarterly Payout, and Dotrebate.com will retain your Shopping and Bonus Credits as a Service Charge. If your Shopping and Bonus Credit balance is less than $5.01 when your Member Account is terminated by Dotrebate.com due to Inactivity, then your Inactivity constitutes consent to Dotrebate.com's forfeiture of such balance.

14. Termination of an Account By Dotrebate.com for Suspected Misrepresentation, Fraud, or Improper Use

You may not use scripts, disguised redirects, misrepresentations, or any other improper or fraudulent means or methods to falsely inflate your Qualifying Purchases, Shopping and Bonus Credits, or Quarterly Payouts. If Dotrebate.com has reasonable cause to believe that you've utilized improper or fraudulent means or methods in association with your Member Account or use of the Cash Back Shopping Service, Dotrebate.com has your permission to review your account(s) with Partner Site(s) to investigate any such suspected activity, and we additionally reserve the right to withhold future Quarterly Payouts from you, and to terminate your Member Account.
