Good to know FAQ's about adding your debit and credit cards
What type of credit cards can I use?
Givebacks in-store cashback works with most American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit cards. Exceptions include Macy’s American Express cards, corporate and purchasing cards, Health Savings Account cards, Flexible Spending Account cards, government-administered prepaid cards (including EBT cards), insurance prepaid cards and Visa Buxx. Diners Club and Discover cards are not eligible for in-store cashback at this time.
Can I use my store credit card for in-store cashback?
Givebacks in-store cashback is awarded when American Express, Mastercard and Visa report your linked purchase to us. Unfortunately, most store cards, even if they have a major credit card logo, are processed through the store’s bank and not the major credit card networks. This prevents us from being able to award cashback on these transactions.
Can I use a credit card issued outside of the United States to earn in-store cashback?
No. Only cards issued in the United States and Canada are eligible to earn cashback at participating stores in the United States. Please note that any Canadian credit cards must be enrolled in the Givebacks in-store cashback program to be eligible for cashback.
Why can’t I use my Diners Club and Discover cards?
We are working diligently to add more payment card options for use with in-store cashback. We appreciate your patience while we work to expand our program.
Can I use my debit card to earn in-store cashback?
We recommended using an eligible American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit card for Givebacks in-store cashback. If you use your debit card, do not enter your PIN at checkout. Instead, select “credit” instead of “debit” when your card is swiped or inserted, which means you will sign a receipt instead of entering your PIN at the point of sale. If you use your PIN for debit, Givebacks will not get your transaction information and you will not be eligible for in-store cashback.
How many cards can I enroll for in-store cashback?
You may enroll as many credit cards as you like. There is no limit to the number of eligible American Express, Mastercard or Visa cards that you can add to your Givebacks account to earn in-store cashback.
How do I know my credit card information is secure?
Does Givebacks store my credit card information?
No - Givebacks does not receive or store your bank account, payment card, or online payment service credentials on any systems that we operate. Givebacks uses a process called Tokenization. The primary difference—and benefit—of using tokenization vs. encryption is that tokenized data cannot be returned to its original form. Unlike encryption, tokenization does not use keys to alter the original data. Instead, it removes the data from an organization's internal systems entirely and exchanges it for a randomly generated nonsensitive placeholder (a token). These placeholders can be stored within an organization's internal systems for business use while sensitive values are safely stored outside of its environment.
So, in the event that a tokenized environment is breached, no sensitive data or compromising keys/credentials would be revealed—only the nonsensitive tokens. Because no sensitive data is being stored, none is available to be stolen. In effect, the risk of data theft is virtually eliminated.
