Please read this membership agreement ("Agreement") for complete details on our cash-back shopping program  ("Program").

 

Becoming a Member

By becoming a member of Piggy (“Member”), or by using any of our shopping programs (“Applications”), you agree to be bound by this Agreement, in its current form or as may hereafter be modified. Becoming a Member is simple: simply provide a valid email address. Your email address will be our primary form of communication, and we’ll use it to let you know when cash or other rewards have been credited to you. Members must be 18 years of age or older, and Members agree not to use the Program for any criminal or fraudulent action. Membership in the Program and the opportunity to be paid cash back are presented at the sole discretion of Piggy, and Piggy, at its sole discretion, has the right to change this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice, and to modify, add or discontinue any aspect, content or feature of the Website, the Program, of any Application or of our services. Your continued use or accessing of the Website, the Program, any Application or of our services following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes your acceptance of such changes.

If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement or to any modifications to this Agreement, please do not use the Program, this Website, any Application or any of our services.

Earning Cash Back

Earning a portion of your purchases as cash back (“Cash Back”) is simple. Begin your shopping at the Website or with one of our Applications and select the store, product, coupon or other offer which interests you. Click on the link provided, and you’ll be directed to an affiliated store’s website (“Affiliate Store”). Complete a purchase and you’ll earn Cash Back on your net purchase amount. You may also earn Cash Back on purchases made ‘in-store’ at a limited number of stores by presenting a Piggy coupon at time of check out. Such stores and coupons are clearly identified on the Website. Cash Back amounts differ by store and are provided in detail at the Website, and may be changed at any time, with or without notice. Please note that the net purchase amount for determining Cash Back excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties. In addition, most Affiliate Stores may exclude certain products and purchases from the Program; our goal is to limit the number of such exclusions and restrictions and to maintain an up-to-date list of such exclusions and conditions on the Website when pracitcle.

All Cash Back Posted is Considered "UP TO" and May Not Be The Exact Amount Earned

Since Piggy's Cash Back Affiliate Stores carry their own exclusions, always consider the cash back listed to be the Maximum allowable earned amount. In many cases, Affiliate Stores list thousands of individual products that may earn less cash back, or are excluded from cash back altogether. Piggy's goal is to help Users earn the most possible cash back by chosing to pay out the higher attainable end of the cash back. Typically most sites pay lower, or exclude, cash back on Clearanced Items, Video Games, Gift Cards, Warranties, Service Plans, Monthly Service Fees, or products that are re-sold (Cell Plans, Internet Service, etc).

Avoid "Breaking" Cash Back

To earn Cash Back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after leaving the Website and visiting the Affiliate Store. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons by another site or service, your purchase may be linked with a service other than Piggy and you may not earn cash back on your purchase from Piggy. Please be sure to enable cookies on your computer. If you disable ‘cookies’ on your computer, you will not earn Cash Back as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain Cash Back is assigned to the Member account.

When Cash Back Typically Posts

Upon registration of your user name with Piggy, an account will be set up in your name for all Cash Back you earn. The appropriate Cash Back rebate will be posted to your account as “Reported” within thirty (30) days of the date on which an Affiliate Store reports your transaction to Piggy. Usually this process happens within a business day from when your order is shipped. For a period of between ninety-one (91) and one hundred twenty-one (121) days thereafter, your account will refer to the Cash Back rebate as “Pending.” This time period is in accordance with the rights of the Affiliate Store to reverse a transaction for return purposes. Once the Affiliate Store authorizes payment to Piggy of the fees payable regarding a qualifying purchase made by you, Piggy will credit your account with the applicable Cash Back. Your Cash Back earned will thereafter be identified as “Available,” and eligible to be redeemed, subject to the terms of this Agreement. You can view your account status and recent earning history at any time via the Account Earnings tab on the Website.

Earning Bonuses and Other Rewards

From time to time, Piggy may offer bonuses or other rewards, either via cash back or other means, for becoming a new Member to the Program, for referring other new Members, or for other specific actions determined in our sole discretion. If the terms and conditions governing any such offers differ from the terms and conditions of this Agreement, then the terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how such bonuses or other offers are earned and paid. An individual person is only eligible for one membership bonus and may earn only one referral bonus per individual person referred. To be sent a bonus, a Member must have a valid email address.

Receiving Payment

To receive payment of accrued Cash Back and any other rewards, you must establish and maintain an active account with Piggy (“Active Account”) 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 within the United States or Canada, 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 and must have shopped via the Website or via an Application or have accrued Cash Back at any time within the last twelve (12) months.

At any time that you have at least $25.00 in your account available for redemption, you may request to redeem your Cash Back. You may elect to have your Cash Back redeemed in any of the following forms: (i) by payment to your PayPal account, (ii) by electronic payment to your bank account (ACH), or (iii) by check. Provided that you have at least $25.00 in your account available for redemption, your Cash Back will be distributed or sent within thirty (30) days of receipt of your request for payment. Piggy is not responsible for lost mail or any other event or delay beyond the control of Piggy that would prevent a Member from receiving their payment in a timely manner, if at all.

Please note that Cash Back will only be sent if you request to redeem it - there is no automatic redemption amount or any scheduled time period when we redeem Cash Back. If any check expires without being cashed or deposited or if it is returned to Piggy, it will be returned to your account, where it may be subject to inactive account maintenance charges as described below.Please note that credit for purchases from some Affiliate Stores may be delayed by one or more pay cycles due to delayed processing and reporting by those Affiliate Stores. Our goal is to expedite payments and to maintain a list of Affiliate Stores whose practices might delay our ability to pay Cash Back on your purchase. Piggy 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 must be logged into Piggy 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 Account Earnings tab on the Website. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your password and not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your password and other account information confidential. Piggy is entitled to act on instructions received under your password and is not responsible for any credits or debits made to your account by someone else who uses your password.

Receiving Communications from Piggy

By signing up for membership at Piggy, you agree to receive communications that are account or 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 Piggy Members. You can opt-out of receiving emails that are not account-related by either (i) visiting your account page and unchecking the receive email box, or (ii) 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 Piggy, even if just to hear that we awarded you Cash Back, you can close your account by contacting Piggy’ customer service department. Please note that, should you elect to close your account, you will forfeit your right to receive any Cash Back or other bonuses or awards which have not yet been credited to your account, or for which you have not yet requested payment or for which you have not yet fully satisfied the requirements.
