Every day Ebates Canada picks at least one store and doubles the Cash Back on purchases for a twenty-four hour period only. To be eligible for double Cash Back, your purchase must be made during a shopping session that originates from an Ebates Canada link between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM PST on the day it has been selected by Ebates Canada, and make a purchase. Visit our Daily Double page to see which store has been selected today.

Do all purchases qualify for Cash Back rewards?

Virtually every item you purchase through Ebates qualifies for Cash Back. We cannot, however, give Cash Back for taxes, shipping, or any portion of a purchase that is paid for with gift certificates or a store credit. Any purchase of products and services in which the transaction is substantially completed by telephone does not qualify for Cash Back. In addition, a few specific stores place minor restrictions on Cash Back eligibility. We do our best to maintain an up-to-date list of store-related exceptions on our website. Note that store exceptions change regularly and Ebates Canada reserves the right to cancel or delay Cash Back payments when affiliated stores alter their policies or refuse to pay Ebates Canada a commission.

My Cash Back and/or order information appears differently in My Ebates Account than it did at checkout.

If you shop on a US store through ebates.ca, exchange rate fluctuations come into effect between the USD and CAD. As a result of this you may receive less (or more!) Cash Back than you had expected in your Ebates Account. If this happens to you, please let member service know and we’ll make it right. While we can't control fluctuating exchange rates, we do have good news. We are working on a solution that will match the amounts more accurately and automagically. Stay tuned! We hope to have it ready for you soon.
