Cash back?

Is it just what it says, or is there a catch? If I charge $100 on a card, and say the cb percentage is 2 percent, I still owe $100, right? I would get $2 from the merchant or card company? Or would I only end up paying $98? Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question and thank you!

Re: Cash back?

Typically, CC companies have a rewards balance(Exception: Penfed cash rewards is applied at the statement cut automatically). Typically, when your statement cuts, the cashback you've earned through the month will be deposited into your account(Exception examples: Barclays is when the charge clears, AMEX is a month behind).

 

Then you can either ask for the money you've earned in the form of a check(Carries a minimum balance needed to redeem) or just apply it as statement credit (Sometimes needs a minimum, usually lower than check, to redeem). If they offer points, they usually have other things to redeem like gift cards or products as well.



|| Barclaycard Rewards Visa $5500 || AMEX BCE $2000 || Discover IT $3000 || Amazon Rewards Visa $1800 ||
|| Chase Freedom $2700 || CSP $5000 || Chase Marriott Premier $7500 || Sallie Mae MC $3800 ||

FICO Scores: EX 752 (3/13/13) || EQ 782 (10/4/13) || TU 724 (1/18/13)

You would still have to pay $100, unless you choose to apply the $2 cash back towards your balance.

If you tell us which card specifically you are referring to, we can give more exact advice.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $14,600, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800

Re: Cash back?

You pay the charges in full; the rewards will post to your account typically at the end of the billing cycle. When the rewards post you'll have cash credit to apply toward the account balance.

Re: Cash back?

Unfortunately, I don't have that card so I'm not sure how the cash back works.

Could someone else who has the card help the OP figure out when the cash back is available and how the OP can use it? Does it have to be in $25 increments, is it available to use immediately, etc.
