What is a shopping assistant?
The shopping assistant notifies you when you are shopping on a CU Perks partner site, serving as a reminder that you that you can earn rewards by making the purchase through CU Perks.
Why would the retailers give away money?
Each retailer has an advertising budget that pays website owners a percentage of sales for driving traffic to their site, instead of keeping these advertising dollars we choose to give them back to you, our loyal members.
Why is there a 60-day holding period?Each retailer has a return / exchange policy. As a result of these policies and risk of fraud, each retailer will not pay out advertising commissions until the exchange period has passed. Retail Benefits makes funds available as soon as they are guaranteed payment from the retailer.
