ShopAtHome offers Cash Back Rewards and Promotional Rewards. Cash Back Rewards are credits made to Members' accounts from purchases at Affiliate Stores that result from any interaction with a ShopAtHome.com Product (like our website, the Savings Button and our smartphone/tablet applications).
Below is a brief description of Rewards and the related rules. Please see our Terms and Conditions for additional information. Also, NOTE: that all capitalized terms below are defined in these same Terms and Conditions.
Most Cash Back is Qualified Cash Back, which is a Cash Back Reward generated by a Qualified Purchase (see the FAQ for "What purchases qualify for Cash Back?" under "Cash Back Questions"). This cash is posted to your account once a purchase confirmation is received by ShopAtHome. Once you have at least $20 in Qualified Cash Back in your account, a payment will be scheduled. The payment will be made approximately 60 days after the last day of the month during which you reach the $20 minimum.
Some Cash Back is Non-Qualified Cash Back. This is a Cash Back Reward generated by a purchase that did not involve an Outclick from ShopAtHome.com or clicking on an interactive feature of the Savings Button. Non-Qualified Cash Back may have different terms than Qualified Cash Back, such as the percent of the purchase amount awarded to the customer; and Non-Qualified Cash Back does not count toward the $20 minimum of Qualified Cash Back required for ShopAtHome to schedule a payment per the schedule above.
We also provide our Members with Promotional Rewards. These are Rewards like a sign-up bonus, a referral bonus, or select ShopAtHome promotions like "Buy More Save More". These do not count toward the $20 minimum in Qualified Cash Back; and are included in a Payment scheduled when the user reaches the $20 Qualified Cash Back minimum. ShopAtHome may reverse both Promotional Rewards and Non-Qualified Cash Back in some circumstances should the customer not have a Qualifying Purchase in a specific periord of time.
Lastly, it costs ShopAtHome money to maintain Members accounts. As such, we deactivate dormant accounts; and we consider accounts to be dormant after 12 consecutive months without a qualifying purchase. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information surrounding our policy regarding dormant accounts.
