RebateCodes.com utilizes commission-based affiliate marketing from our merchant partners ("Affiliate Merchants"). Our RebateCodes.com "Members" share in these commissions via "Cash Back Rebates".
To ensure that you, as a RebateCodes.com 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 RebateCodes.com 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 RebateCodes.com cash back rebates program that allows registered members of RebateCodes.com to participate in cashback shopping 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 RebateCodes.com. You are under no obligation to participate or redeem your Cash Back Rebates.
RebateCodes.com offers Cash Back Rebates by working with online retailers utilizing affiliate marketing. As a RebateCodes.com 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 RebateCodes.com website at Affiliate Merchants designated by RebateCodes.com. In addition, you may receive Cash Back Rebates for participating in such other activities as may be designated by RebateCodes.com 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 RebateCodes.com 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 $25.00 US Dollars . You, as the Member, must request payment through the appropriate mechanism on the RebateCodes.com web site.
RebateCodes.com is not responsible for the products or services offered by the Affiliate Merchants. RebateCodes.com is responsible only for establishing and maintaining your account based upon the information you provide, posting the 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 RebateCodes.com 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. RebateCodes.com 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.

RebateCodes.com 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 RebateCodes.com. 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 RebateCodes.com web site. You must have Internet access and a valid working email address to receive the privileges and benefits of participation in the Program.

Potential members who do not initially register at RebateCodes.com are given a persistent cookie tagged with a referral link's original referrer ID.

3. You must complete the 'Qualified Purchase' during the same session immediately following the initial click-through to the Affiliate Merchant's site.
4. Discount codes, coupon codes or promotion codes that are NOT supplied by supplied by RebateCodes.com 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 RebateCodes.com link then that user has earned $2.00 in their RebateCodes.com Account. Some merchants specifiy different cashback rates for various products. In this case, an average cashback rate may be quoted but it is understood that the actual cashback rate may vary based upon the actual product purchased.
Certain cash back restrictions can apply to select merchants. The actual cashback rate you will receive can vary by product, product category, and any special exclusions as dictated by the merchange. RebateCodes will make every effort to keep our advertised rates current and accurate but in no way guarantee any rates.

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.

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.
