Mr. Rebates utilizes commission-based
affiliate marketing from our merchant partners ("Affiliate
Merchants"). Our Mr. Rebates "Members" share in
these commissions via "Cash Back Rebates".
To ensure that you, as a Mr. Rebates
Member, fully understand what you will be paid for, when
you will be paid, what rights you have as a Member and what our
responsibilities are to you, we have created this document, "Terms
and Conditions". By becoming a member of the Mr. Rebates
web site, you agree that you have read, understood, and agreed with the
following Terms and Conditions, and consent to be bound by
all said Terms and Conditions, including any future amendments or updates.
The "Program" is defined as the Mr. Rebates cash back rebates program that allows
registered members of Mr. Rebates to shop with our Affiliate
Merchants and earn Cash Back Rebates as a rewards system. The
Program is offered for free and is conferred as a benefit of membership
of Mr. Rebates. You are under no obligation to participate or redeem
your Cash Back Rebates.
Mr. Rebates offers Cash Back Rebates by working
with online retailers utilizing affiliate marketing. As a Mr. Rebates
Member, you will be automatically credited, subject to the agreement
terms listed below,
a specified amount of Cash Back Rebates of the net purchases or a
specified flat amount for purchases or offers made by you through the
Mr. Rebates website at Affiliate Merchants designated by Mr. Rebates. In addition, you may receive Cash Back Rebates for
participating in such other activities as may be designated by Mr.
Rebates from time to time by amendment to this Agreement setting forth
the specific terms.
Cash Back Rebates that are earned by you as a
result of a purchase from Affiliate Merchants will be held in an
account maintained by Mr. Rebates that is accessible online. Cash
Back Rebates can be requested as payment via check or Paypal once the amount in your
"Available Rebates" account
equals or exceeds $10.00 US Dollars . You, as the Member, must request payment through the
appropriate mechanism on the Mr. Rebates web site.
Mr. Rebates is
not responsible for the products or services offered by the Affiliate
Merchants. Mr. Rebates is responsible only for establishing and
maintaining your account based upon the information you provide,
purchase information provided by the Affiliate Merchants and
compensating valid members who request payment of Cash Back Rebates.
Participation in the Program is limited to individuals that are 18
years or older. The program is open to US and Canadian residents
for both check and Paypal rebate payments. The program is open
to international residents but Paypal is the only payment option for
Cash Back Rebates.
The program cannot be combined with
other reward mechanisms including but not limited to other
cash back/points/miles websites. Usage of other reward
mechanisms in addition to Mr. Rebates will cause cash back
rebates to not be reported from affiliate merchants and no manual
adjustments will be given in these cases.
Any attempt to accumulate Cash Back
Rebates by means of an automated
machine or computer, scripts, software computerized or automated
process, or through the use of multiple accounts is expressly
prohibited. Mr. Rebates will cancel a member's account and that member
will forfeit all Cash Back Rebates earned if they are found to be
manipulating the system. Cancellation of a member account
due to any of the above prohibited activities or system manipulation
is at the full discretion of Mr. Rebates. Mr. Rebates reserves the right to pursue
such prohibited conduct to the fullest extent of the law.
Members must maintain one unique account and any duplicate accounts
are subject to cancellation. Determination of what is a unique
account is at the sole discretion of Mr. Rebates. Duplicate
accounts can result in cancellation of account(s) or removal of
sign-up bonuses and/or referrals.
The Program is currently offered for purchases made through links on
the Mr. Rebates web site. You must have Internet access and a valid
working email address to receive the privileges and benefits of
participation in the Program.
REFER A FRIEND PROGRAM
A "Referral" is deemed as any new,
unique member of Mr. Rebates that registers either under a referral
link given from Mr. Rebates or by the new member providing an email
address of another existing member in the registration process.
If a referral link is clicked by a potential new member and the new
member provides a referral email address that is different from the
referral link's email address, the referral is awarded to the email
address entered in the registration process.
Potential members who do not
initially register at Mr. Rebates are given a persistent cookie
tagged with a referral link's original referrer ID. If the
potential member signs up on a future date and the cookie is still
present on their web browser, the referral will be awarded given all
other conditions are met in these terms and conditions. Mr.
Rebates makes every effort for the referral tracking system to be
accurate but cannot be responsible for cookie tracking that is
disrupted due to visitor's clearing cookies, changing computers or
utilizing any other mechanism that could potentially disrupt
Determination of a "Referral", when
in question, is at the sole discretion of Mr. Rebates.
Referral purchases are awarded at a
rate of 20% of the original rebate and are posted to the original
referrer's account. The referral bonuses are automatic and are
credited daily within 24 hours of the original rebate being posted.
Referral rebates are not rewarded on manual customer service
adjustments to any referral account.
Mr. Rebates provides four basic
ways to refer members including referral email templates, text
links, banner links, and the ability for others to provide an email
address of the referrer in the registration process as given on this
'Spamming' other individuals to join the
Mr. Rebates program via unsolicited email, direct mail, newsgroups,
message boards, or any other means is strictly prohibited in the Refer
a Friend program. Mr. Rebates reserves the
right to remove a member from the Mr. Rebates' Program if they are found to be
'spamming'. It is the sole discretion of Mr. Rebates to determine if a user is
Referral text links, banner links
or referral email addresses should
only be posted on websites that the member has direct ownership such as
personal websites, personal blogs, personal facebook pages, personal
Twitter accounts, etc. Please respect posting guidelines on
any public forum, blog, auction, etc. and any referral posting deemed
inappropriate by Mr. Rebates will be asked to be removed as detailed
Furthermore, Mr. Rebates reserves
the right to prohibit any referral mechanism deemed inappropriate in
Mr. Rebates' sole discretion. This includes but is not limited
to the following types of referral mechanisms:
* Trademark violations of either
Mr. Rebates' affiliate merchant partners or other trademark
* Inappropriate content such as hate, porn or violence content.
* Any pay per click ad purchase in a search engine for any keyword.
(I.E. Google, Yahoo, etc.)
* Content intended to falsify or mislead consumers about Mr.
Any content that is deemed
inappropriate by the Mr. Rebates' compliance department will be
asked to be taken down with one warning email. If the said
content is not removed within 3 business days or if the content is
found again at a later time, the member's account will be disabled
until further notice. The member will forfeit any current
cash back, referrals and/or future privileges.
A referral may be removed by request
of the "referrer" by contacting the customer service department via the
Help section of Mr. Rebates.
Referral rebates (not regular
cash back rebates) will be totaled for each calendar year and a 1099
form will be provided after a valid W9 form has been signed and
completed by any member who exceeds $600 in referral rebates for
that calendar year. The 1099 form will be provided within IRS
deadlines if a valid W9 is received within those IRS deadlines. The
total referral rebates include the referral rebates that were paid
out in each respective payment request for that calendar year.
Self referral is not allowed within
the Mr. Rebates' Refer a Friend program which can include separate
accounts registered in the same household. Determination of what
a 'self-referral' consists of is at the sole discretion of Mr.
Rebates. If Mr. Rebates deems two accounts as self-referrals,
Mr. Rebates reserves the right to suspend the accounts, reverse
referral rebates or take any other action that would remove the
EARNING CASH BACK REBATES
To be eligible for Cash Back Rebates you must make a
Purchase'. In order to make a 'Qualified Purchase', you must satisfy the following criteria:
1. You must have cookies enabled on your Web browser.
2. You must make all Qualified Purchases by clicking on the 'Affiliate Merchant's' link that appears on the
Mr. Rebates site, and be successfully connected to the Affiliate Merchant's site based on that click.
3. You must complete the 'Qualified Purchase' during the same session
immediately following the initial click-through to the Affiliate
4. Discount codes, coupon codes or promotion codes that are NOT supplied by
supplied by Mr. Rebates can negate a 'Qualified Purchase'.
5. Purchase must not be made with a gift card or gift certificate as
part of the payment method.
Members will be awarded a specified
percentage of the purchase price of the order (minus taxes, shipping,
fees, etc.) in Cash Back
Rebates. For example, if 2% is specified as the award for shopping at a specific
merchant and a user purchases $100 worth of goods at that merchant
through an Mr. Rebates link then that user has earned $2.00 in
their Mr. Rebates Account.
Certain cash back restrictions can
apply to select merchants. An asterisk will display near the merchant's
name on the merchant's respective landing page.
following purchases at ALL merchants do not qualify for rebates:
Certificate / Gift Card purchases on merchants other than those
* Purchases made with a gift card or gift certificate
* RX prescriptions
* Pet prescriptions
* Recurring monthly subscriptions (excluding magazine subscriptions
from magazine subscription websites)
* Trial and free products
* Any order that includes back-ordered items and monthly
delivery products such as 'auto-ship' products and 'wait-list' items
* Any order that is deemed a high-volume / reseller order as
determined by the merchant's sole discretion
Mr. Rebates makes no guarantees
that cash back will be rewarded on purchases even if all steps are
followed for a 'Qualified Purchase'. When a rebate inquiry
claim is filed by a member, Mr. Rebates customer support will
contact the merchant in question and will seek a resolution but Mr.
Rebates will not offer the rebate in question unless the merchant
agrees to pay Mr. Rebates for that particular rebate. If after
4 weeks, a merchant does not resolve the rebate issue, this will
constitute non-payment from the merchant and the rebate inquiry
cannot be paid.
Determination of whether or not a purchase made through an Mr.
Rebates 'Affiliate Merchant' is a 'Qualified Purchase' is at the sole discretion of
Mr. Rebates. Mr. Rebates is not responsible for tracking problems resulting from incorrect usage of the
Mr. Rebates site, disabling cookies, computer issues resulting
from unknown causes such as third-party software or other issues, merchant partner
errors/omissions or from any other failure of tracking mechanisms.
The appropriate Cash Back Rebate information accrued from a Qualified Purchase from an Affiliate Merchant will be posted to the Pending section of your personal account within
30 days from notice thereof to Mr. Rebates by an Affiliate Merchant. Once we receive payment for your transaction and the return period defined by the Affiliate Merchant has expired, the Pending
Cash Back Rebates balance, adjusted for returns or other such variables, will be moved into the
Available Cash Back Rebates section of your account. Your Cash Back
Rebates, according to the amount indicated in the Available Cash Back
Rebates section of your account, will be eligible for request of
payment when you have exceeded $10.00 in your account.
If a discrepancy occurs in an Mr.
Rebates member account such as a rebate not being credited to an
account and the Mr. Rebates member believes he/she made the
purchase through Mr. Rebates, then the member must contact Mr. Rebates via our Customer Support forms within
90 days of the
purchase date of the goods/services with proper documentation/proof of
purchase. Failure in contacting
Mr. Rebates within that 90 day period will result in no customer
support rebate inquiries to the merchants for the said
Please note that some merchants do not
allow claims to be opened on behalf of the customer (eBay, etc.).
In these cases, the restriction will be posted in the appropriate
"restrictions" area for each respective merchant and no claims can be filed
for that merchant as such.
In the case where a customer is filing
"excessive" claims, Mr. Rebates' reserves the right to disable filing
claims for an individual customer per merchant or for all merchants.
The definition of "excessive" claims will be at the sole judgement of the
Mr. Rebates' customer service department.
Cash Back Rebates awarded to you are subject to adjustments for returns, cancellations
or reversals by each respective merchant for any reason. In case of return or
cancellation, Mr. Rebates retains the right to reverse account
credit. In addition, Mr. Rebates reserves the right to make
adjustments to Member accounts at any time in Mr. Rebate's sole
discretion. If you disagree with any adjustments made to your account
your sole remedy is to discontinue use of the Program.
In the event that a Participating Merchant shall withhold any portion
of the fees payable to Mr. Rebates on account of a Qualified
Purchase, Mr. Rebates reserves the right to withhold the same
amount from the Cash Back Rebates credited to your account based on
USE OF ONLINE COUPONS
Mr. Rebates also provides online
coupons as a free service to its members. These online coupons
are entered in by our administrative staff on a daily basis. Mr.
Rebates is not responsible for the redemption, errors/omissions or
expiration of online coupons and it is the member's responsibility to
make sure that a discount, % off, special pricing, or free offer is
present in the checkout process of an affiliate merchant. Coupons
are generally not valid with any other offer from a specific merchant
unless otherwise noted.
Coupon codes obtained outside of the
Mr. Rebates website can nullify a cash back rebate given for a
particular merchant. Mr. Rebates reserves the right to cancel any
cash back rebate because of coupon codes that are used from external
sources other than Mr. Rebates.
All offers and promotions on this
site are subject to change without notice. Mr. Rebates provides a

the offers shown on this site and does not guarantee the accuracy or
completeness of the information contained in this site. In the event
you have a dispute with a vendor in any way relating to this site or

(actual and consequential), losses, costs or expenses of every kind and

'Available' in your account at any time when you have
exceeded $10.00 in your account through the designated form on the Mr.

usually on the first day of each month. The checks are then
mailed to the mailing address that the user supplies as part of the
payment request process. Mr. Rebates is not responsible for lost
mail or any other event beyond Mr. Rebates control that would
prevent the user from receiving their payment check.
Mr. Rebates posts product pricing in various sections of the
website. While Mr. Rebates makes every effort to post accurate
pricing, any individual product price displayed on Mr. Rebates is
subject to change and the final price of a product is determined at
the merchant's website. Mr. Rebates nor the merchant in
question are not liable for any pricing errors.
