How many cards I can link to Benjamin Cash Back App?

You may attach as many cards as you like to your Benjamin Cash Back account. In fact, we always advise consumers to link all acceptable cards. You won't have to remember which one to use when shopping with one of our merchant partners!

Please allow at least 24 hours after linking your qualifying card(s) to confirm your card(s) have been registered with the Benjamin. If you make transactions with a freshly connected card before the 24-hour mark, you may not receive automatic cash back and will need to submit a missing cash back ticket.

Why haven't I received cash back from my purchase?

When using Benjamin, the process you must go through for online and in-store transactions is different. Here are some reasons why you may be experiencing issues with receiving your cash back:

Online Offers

There could be several reasons why you did not receive cash back for an online offer.

The most common instances are as follows:

1. Once you select an offer, you must go through the Benjamin Cash Back app using the Shop Now or Open button in an offer to access the participating merchant's site.

2. You must make your purchase with an eligible card that is linked to your Dosh wallet. We recommend that you connect all of your credit and debit cards to the app so you can take full advantage of any available Benjamin offers. That way you can use your enrolled cards interchangeably without having to remember a specific one to use!

3. If you use your PayPal account or other virtual wallet to purchase an online order, the purchase will not register within our system. Please make sure to pay directly with an eligible card that is linked to your Benjamin account.

4. Your qualifying online transaction did not clear with the credit card processor, therefore a notification was not sent to Benjamin. As a result, any cash back was invalidated OR  there was a change with your online order. If your order was returned, cancelled, or if the amount changed due to items being added, the cash back will show up as invalidated or "failed" in our system.

5. You linked your eligible card and immediately tried to use it for an online offer. Once you link your eligible card, it usually takes about 24 hours to register with our credit card partners .

6. The offer was removed or changed and therefore not valid at the time of purchase. Please make sure to check the app for any qualifying offers on the day of purchase to ensure your cash back.

7. You purchased an item that was excluded from the offer, have already received the maximum cash back allowed by the participating merchant offer, or paid with a card that is excluded from the offer. Make sure to review the rules of the offer.

You'll see any limits, exclusions, or daily caps that the merchant may have as part of their offer. This will help you to ensure your cash back!

10. The qualifying transaction hasn’t been processed yet on our end.

Although your transaction may have already cleared with your bank or credit card, the updates we receive are an entirely separate process. Once our system has received the necessary update from your credit/debitt card processor, you will receive your cash back. When this happens, you will no longer see "pending" in underneath your cash back amount, and the cash back will become available to claim.

Please note that It may take up to 7 days for a qualifying transaction to appear in your Benjamin account. Cash back may sometimes stay in a pending status for up to 90 days, depending on the participating merchant. As mentioned above, online offers may require up to 7 days for any cash back to be deposited into your Benjamin wallet.

Please allow for this timeframe to pass to ensure you receive your earnings. If it's exceeded 7 days, and you have not yet received your cash back please contact us through the chat icon from the app.

Wdo some investigation and work on crediting your account manually if needed. We will always try our best to get you your cash back!

Credit Card Purchases

Although our goal is to give you cash back automatically, sometimes it may take up to 7 days for the cash back to appear in your wallet. In some cases, a qualifying credit card transaction may take longer to process than other ones.

Sometimes the purchase may have also accidentally went to debit side of your card. The simplest method to determine if your purchase was a credit or debit transaction is to check at the top or bottom of the receipt, which should state was the transaction either credit or debit.
