How Does Kroger Cash Back Work?
I’m so excited to talk to you about Kroger Cash Back.
This is a new rebate program similar to Ibotta (that we all love)! This is very new to Kroger so it’s still a learning process for me. I will be learning more and updating as I get more information so stay tuned.
UPDATE AS OF 2/5/20: It has come to our attention that Kroger has updated their Cash Back FAQs to now state that PAPER coupons also cannot be used with the cash back offers. This clause was added AFTER we wrote our initial tutorial and I recorded the video below, so please take note of that. We will no longer be stacking ANY coupons with Kroger Cash Back offers in order to keep in line with written policy. “Digital Coupons and Cash Back Offers may not be combined and are limited to one per item. Cash Back Offers and paper coupons may also not be combined on the purchase of a single item.”
UPDATE AS OF 7/2/19: After experimenting for a couple of weeks, we have some answers to questions, so I wanted to do a video explaining a bit more in depth on how exactly this works!!
NOTE: This option is currently ONLY available on Kroger.com, not on the Kroger app.
What are Cash Back Offers and Rewards?
Kroger Cash Back is a new program where you can earn money on the items you buy everyday! Simply load the Cash Back Offer to your Shopper’s Card to redeem on qualifying purchases. Once you purchase the qualifying item for the Cash Back Offer, your balance will begin to accrue. You can then cash out your Cash Back Reward to your Shopper’s Card or PayPal account.
What is required to load Cash Back Offers?
To take advantage of a Cash Back Offer, you just need to create an account on Kroger’s account and register your Shopper’s Card. If you don’t have a digital account, click here.
What is required to redeem Cash Back Rewards?
To redeem Cash Back Rewards, you’ll need to log in to your account and cash out your available Cash Back Rewards via Shopper’s Card or PayPal. Please note, other members of your household cannot cash out your Cash Back Rewards. However, if cashing out to your Shopper’s Card, please be advised that other members of your household may be able to use your Cash Back Rewards on their next shopping trip.
How does cashing out my Cash Back Rewards to my Shopper’s Card work?
Your Cash Back Reward earnings can be transferred to your Shopper’s Card and you can choose the amount to load to your card up to $99.99 per day. The Cash Back Reward amount can be redeemed on your next shopping trip. If you do not use the full Cash Back Reward amount in one shopping trip, you can continue to use it in future shopping trips until you use all of the remaining amount. Cash Back Reward earnings cannot be applied to the purchase of fuel, gift cards, alcohol, pharmacy purchases, tobacco products, lottery, money services and fees.
How does cashing out my Cash Back Rewards to my PayPal account work?
Your Cash Back Reward earnings can be transferred to your desired PayPal account as soon as you’ve earned $20.00. Please note, you cannot cash out more than $99.99 per day.
You’ll then head to Kroger and pay for the items and within a week, your account will be credited. Be sure to read the coupon to see how many times you can redeem for cash back in one transaction.
How often can I cash out my Cash Back Rewards?
You are only allowed to cash out once within a 24-hour period for both your Shopper’s Card and PayPal account.
