Money Press Cash Back Shopping Program

Like all businesses, there is some legal stuff we’re required to tell you. We realize this is a lot to wade through, so at the beginning of each section, we’ll summarize the key points in bold, although it applies. Let’s get started! You earn money for shopping online at stores that are affiliates of Money Press.
Money Press.com (Money Press) offers its members a service that allows members to earn cash back on purchases made at many online sites. Joining and using Money Press is free and simple. All you need is your email address and a password to get started. Money Press does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and Money Press does not spam its members. In other words, there is no catch. Money Press receives a fee for referring buyers to affiliated online stores and uses that fee to pay you as a member cash back on your purchases. We think you will agree that Money Press offers the smartest way to shop online.

Becoming a Member

When you enroll, you are agreeing to follow our policies, rules, and regulations. We do have the right to change or end this agreement at any time. You must be at least 18 years old to become a member.
By enrolling as a member in the program or by utilizing any of the Money Press shopping applications or extensions, you agree to be bound by this agreement. Enrollment as a member is simple: you must provide your email address so Money Press can inform you when money or other rewards are credited to your account. Members must be at least eighteen years old and agree not to use the program for any illegal or fraudulent activity. Please be aware that participation in the program and the opportunity to earn cash back are offered at the sole discretion of Money Press, and Money Press has the right to change this agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.

Earning Cash Back

You’ll earn cash back every time you make an online purchase from any store linked to our website. You may also earn cash back by using a Money Press coupon for some in-store purchases.
Earning back a portion of your purchases as cash back is straightforward and easy. Choose a store, product, coupon, or other offer displayed on MoneyPress.com or any Money Press application, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an affiliated store's website (Affiliate Store), and complete a purchase to earn cash back on your net purchase amount. Specific cash back amounts vary by store and product category and are provided in detail on the MoneyPress.com site. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.
Certain affiliate stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the program. At times they exclude entire categories. To earn cash back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the Money Press link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by Money Press, your purchase might be associated with a service other than Money Press and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable cookies on your computer, you will not be able to earn cash back, as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain cash back is assigned to your member account.

Earning Bonuses and Other Rewards

To earn cash back and qualify for rewards, you need to spend at least $25 through Money Press during the first 90 days you are a member. You may also earn referral bonuses for getting friends and family to join Money Press.
Money Press periodically offers monetary bonuses or other rewards for sign-up in the program, for referring other new members, or for other specific actions. The terms and conditions accompanying such offers will determine how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from this Agreement. To qualify for a sign-up bonus payment, a new member must establish an active account (as defined below) and make minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within ninety (90) days of becoming a member. To qualify for a referral bonus, a Member must refer a new Member who establishes his or her own active account and makes his or her own minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within the first ninety (90) days of becoming a member. Please note that sign-up and referral bonuses are given for the purpose of attracting brand new members to Money Press. An individual is only eligible for one sign-up bonus and may earn only one referral bonus per individual referred. In order to receive a gift card bonus, you must have a valid mailing address in the United States or Canada.

Receiving Payment

We pay cash back to members every three months. In order to receive your rewards, we need your email address and your mailing address.
To receive payment of accrued cash back and any other rewards, you must establish and maintain an active account with Money Press with the information necessary to process your payment: a valid email address at which you are able to receive email, a valid postal address at which you are able to receive mail, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your active account, you must update your information if it changes. You must have shopped via MoneyPress.com or a Money Press application or have accrued cash back at any time within the last twelve (12) months.
Money Press pays its members accrued cash back and other rewards every three months, at a minimum. Money Press pays members in U.S. dollars via check, Paypal, and sometimes uses other payment options. Members may select or change their payment options in the My Money Press section of MoneyPress.com. If your check expires without being cashed or deposited or if it is returned to Money Press, it will be returned to your account, where it will be subject to inactive account maintenance charges described below. Each payment represents cash back and other rewards earned and accrued during the prior quarter based on the schedule below. The minimum payment amount is $5.01. Balances below $5.01 remain in your account for potential payment during the next payment period.

Please note that orders from a few affiliate stores may be delayed by one pay cycle due to delayed processing and reporting by those stores. We do our best to expedite payments and to maintain a list of stores whose practices might delay our ability to pay cash back on your purchase. Money Press reserves the right to delay payment for any purchase based on changes to Affiliate Store policies and procedures at any time.

Updating and Maintaining Your Account

You need a good strong password to protect your account. You can change your password at any time on the Money Press web site. Keep your password safe, because we aren’t responsible for purchases made by someone else using your password.
You must be logged into Money Press and enter your password to change your account information and payment preferences. You may check your account status and recent earning history at any time via the My Money Press tab on the Money Press Website. For security purposes, we recommend that you memorize your password and not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your password and other account information confidential. Money Press will act on instructions we receive under your password and we are not responsible for any credits or debits made to your account by someone else who uses your password.

Receiving Communications from Money Press

We may send you emails from time to time, to update you on new offers, coupons, and other information. Don’t worry, we won’t flood your inbox. You can opt-out of receiving non-account related emails by clicking the Subscriptions link on the Money Press site.
By signing up for membership at Money Press, you agree to receive communications that are account and membership related (e.g., that we've added money to your account, that we are mailing you a check on a certain date, etc.) as well as periodic shopping-related emails that highlight coupons and special deals that are available to Money Press members. You can opt-out of receiving emails that are not account-related by either visiting your account page and clicking on the Subscriptions link, or following the unsubscribe link on any of the emails. Since we need to communicate account information with you in order to operate our service, you cannot unsubscribe from account information emails. But rest assured that we don't send account emails unnecessarily. If you do not wish ever to hear from Money Press, even if just to hear that we awarded you cash back, you can close your account by contacting the Money Press customer service department.

Protecting Your Information

We do not sell or rent your name or personal information to anyone else. The only reason we need your email and mailing addresses is so that we can communicate with you easily and quickly. We don’t want you to miss any new offers or rewards.
Money Press does not sell or rent your information to third parties. Money Press requires your name and address in order to send your cash back payments and other rewards earned through Money Press. Any other information gathered by Money Press will be used only to improve your Money Press experience. For example, we may minimize the irrelevant content or offers you see and increase the offers you see from your favorite stores. Such information might include your favorite stores, preferred types of coupons or shopping categories. As detailed in the Money Press Privacy Policy, Money Press does not disclose your information to third parties except as necessary for Money Press's agents and service providers to make Money Press payments to you, to comply with government agency or court orders or requests, in providing aggregated or non-personalized marketing services for advertising or store partners, or for Money Press agents and service providers to send Money Press communications to you.

Using Money Press Applications

You won’t need any special software or program to use the Money Press service.
Money Press does not install or require you to install any software to access the cash back shopping program. Members can earn cash back on their purchases by using only the website MoneyPress.com. Money Press plans to make available a limited number of applications to assist users in earning cash back without visiting MoneyPress.com – like mobile applications or browser extensions. If you use Money Press applications you agree to use them only for your personal use and for accessing the program. Money Press reserves the right to update or discontinue its applications at any time.
All rights to Money Press applications are reserved by Money Press under the copyright laws of the United States.

Inactive Member Accounts and Termination of Membership

Our service is totally free to you as a member. However, if you do not keep your information up to date, or if your account goes to zero or becomes inactive for more than 12 months, we will close your account; but we don’t want to! Membership in the Money Press program is free; there is no charge to be a member or to earn and receive cash back. If your account is inactive for more than twelve (12) consecutive months, Money Press reserves the right to debit your Money Press account balance two dollars ($1.00) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until you reactivate your account by starting a shopping session via MoneyPress.com or a Money Press application, completing a qualifying purchase, or updating your account information (providing a valid name, email and mailing address), or your account balance is zero. If the balance in your inactive account is or becomes zero, Money Press will close the account permanently and cease to maintain your account records and program access. The inactive account maintenance charge will not cause your account balance to become negative and will not cause you to owe money to Money Press.
