How to earn cash back rewards

If you have the Google Pay app, you're directed to the app after you click the offer in Google Search. Follow the instructions in the app to earn and redeem the reward.

If you don't have the Google Pay app, follow these instructions.

Step 1: Find an offer & enroll a card
  1. Find and select an offer.
  2. To enroll a card, tap Get started.
    • If you aren’t signed in to your Google Account, you’re asked to sign in.
  3. Tap Accept & enroll card.
  4. Follow the instructions to enroll in a credit or debit card.
  5. Tap Done.

Which cards are eligible?

You can use most cards from:

These card types aren't eligible for offers and rewards:

  • Health savings account (HSA) cards
  • Flexible savings account (FSA) cards
  • Private label charge cards from a specific store
  • Prepaid cards, like Visa Buxx
  • Prepaid insurance cards
  • Gift cards
  • Cards added to Google Pay directly from another mobile payments app or credit card-issuer app

Tip: You can’t use PayPal for offers and rewards, even if your PayPal account is connected to an enrolled card.

Step 2: Make an eligible purchase with your enrolled card

To qualify and earn a reward, you must complete the terms for the offer.

When you make an eligible purchase:

  • Make sure your purchase meets any minimum purchase amount.
  • Complete the purchase before the offer expiration date.
  • Make any required purchases with the card that you enrolled in offers and rewards.
    • If it’s a retailer offer, you can use either your actual, physical card or the electronic version of the card on your device.
    • To make sure your offer is applied when you use a debit card, authorize your purchase with your signature instead of your PIN.
Step 3: Find your reward

After you complete a purchase that meets the terms for the offer, download the Google Pay app to receive the cash back. Any cash back rewards are deposited into your money in Google Pay.

Tip: It can take several days for your reward to appear. You also receive a confirmation email about the cash back.
