Befrugal Cashback Shopping Site Review

Takes months to get cash back

Boyaolin on March 22, 2018
Cash back $0 for an eligible Amazon purchase. Receive auto reply after sending cash back request.

Jeffrey Lee on March 17, 2018
Never get cashback from them. Suck!

Pradeep Wijetunga on January 31, 2018
I think it is a scam. made levi purchase. it is not tracked

Jea on January 26, 2018
I shopped thru the BeFrugal portal several times. When I requested my check they closed my account! BeFrugal is a scam. Use a different shopping portal!

None of my Amazon purchases get cashback from them. Even those purchases fall into their cash back categories. All my qualify Amazon 7 purchases in past several months get NOTHING from this site, big or small purchases. Even after request investigate, they only sent the auto reply said sorry, not even do any search at all. The only cash back I can see them is from ebay, and only see pennies back. Very disappointed.

I have been using Befrugal for a very long time. I would see cash back in my account and have received probably hundreds of dollars back from them. You would think this is a good thing except I just realized they have ripped me off of hundreds more. I had a very big order and realized the cash back was not even close. This got my attention and I started looking back into my account and found I was heavily shorted on just about every transaction. Even when they got the total purchase price right, they simply outright shorted me on the % I was suppose to get. I am really unhappy about this and can do nothing about it since you are only allowed to go back 60 days. They have been ripping me off for years! No one should have to baby sit them to get what is owed to you.

I started using Befrugal early this year and was at first impressed by how quick the transactions were posted on my account, some of them instantly after I made a purchase.BUT I got very, very disappointed after that, the cash back are showing as pending for 3 months and are supposed to be confirmed 3 months after the purchase (which is very long already). After 3 months, they are still pending and not available to cash out!

On week latter and still no record of my purchase. They did credit th e $10 sign up

Do you have to jump through the hoops? Of course. However it is done to ensure that befrugal gets their comissions. If befrugal does not get a comission I dont get a comission. This is why they create rules that you must follow in order to receive cashback on your purchases. I have used this website for the past 5 years and only once had a problem where I did not receive cashback. Why? Because I did not follow the rules.

I am happy with BeFrugal. Customer support is always there via instant LiveChat during their business hours. They send out payments 10 days after I request it from my account. They must have changed their payout schedule to a more frequent one. Again, I am a happy camper! Received 5 payment to my PayPal account so far. -Nina

Constant missing of purchases. the review process is slow and you have to wait 90 days to get your money....its worth it to stick with ebates. the rates are lower but you get your cash faster and dont have to triple check everything.

I started using Befrugal early this year and was at first impressed by how quick the transactions were posted on my account, some of them instantly after I made a purchase.BUT I got very, very disappointed after that, the cash back are showing as pending for 3 months and are supposed to be confirmed 3 months after the purchase (which is very long already). After 3 months, they are still pending and not available to cash out. I sent several requests and was told they are still waiting for the stores to pay? Once they paid, I will be able to cash out only once a month, payments are processed at the end of the month and they will be paid on the 15th of the following month.... so a minimum of 4.5 months to be paid! That is the longest of all cash back sites! I try not to use them whenever possible. Too bad cos they usually have the highest % cash back.

Wish I had used this sight sooner and need to get my printer going to.make even more use of this site

Brian on October 13, 2013
Takes longer than some other sites to post your cashback, then takes an additional month to cash-out because they only cash-out once a month. But they had the best cashback rate on a contact-lens site that I spent a lot of money at, and after time elapsed, I got a nice cashout. Thanks.

Sam on October 05, 2013
The good: They often have the best cash back. They do price match plus %50 if you email them. Live chat is very helpful with issues. The bad: Orders are often not credited unless you email them with you order. So keep the receipts! With receipts, it will get processed. VERY SLOW cash back credited. It took about 7 MONTHS for all of my Xmas shopping in 2012 to be credited and available for redemption.

Brian on September 21, 2013
I've already received 3 checks. I've never encountered any problems. Great site.

I purchased 2 Virgin Mobile phones back on 2/13 2/14 and I have yet to receive the cashback yet. It took until 6/20 to even get it to be "pending" after waiting a while and requesting the purchases to even be recorded as completed. It seems that Ariana is the only person on there as its always her that helps me, but she is very positive and informative of the process. So far, every time I talk to her there has been a little progress made. It does seem that its possibly the vendor thats preventing them from giving the cashback. Not really sure what to expect :/

I have been using Befrugal for a year now. Very pleased and have already gotten a $110 check back. I shop a lot online, too much I'm afraid, and as soon as I order something you can see it on the website. It does take time to verify since one website I order from has a 60 day return so it takes mine a while to clear. I highly recommend this site.

Jj Walker on July 22, 2013
Great site. Have used them for the past year and have nothing but good things and like the fact you can download all you transactions with Excel to double check before you submit for payment. Once you get rolling with the 90 day wait you really see the results.

Marianne on May 27, 2013
Some of the better cash back rates out there. I do a lot of online shopping and it helps me save quite a bit of money. You do have to wait a while to get your cash back, but these tactics are employed by many cash back sites now to prevent abuse (ie requesting cash back then returning the purchases). Overall, a great service that I would recommend to any savvy online shoppers

Jd on April 24, 2013
The purchase did not post automatically and it took a while for my purchase to lock in, apparently because the merchant never confirmed the purchase with them. Fortunately they credited my account anyway and I've recently requested my payment.

I received my $90 check from I have no issues from befrugal in any respect. They have instant communication messenger which never hold you up and help resolve issues quickly. They make payment faster then ebates on monthly basis rather quaterly basis and also have highest in most of merchants websites. Thanks to I came across and I saved so much money on my Virginmobile purchases.

Mike on April 05, 2013
I agree with a previous reviewer.....I don't understand the "no communication" complaint. The few times I have had to contact support Ariana has quickly and helpfully replied, and resolved my issue. They have GREAT customer service and communication!

Rob on March 14, 2013
You need to request the payment. It won't be automatically sent like ebates and other sites. Once the amount is locked you simply request a check or paypal deposit and it's that simple.

Eden on March 05, 2013
I have no idea why this site is poorly rated by anyone. The customer service representative Ariana is what makes this site the best. The payout rates are high and Ariana makes sure you get everything that is due. Try it! You won't be sorry.

Chartchecker on January 25, 2013
Befrugal never credited the Cashback. They posted a temporary pending credit once I notified them, but credit date was a month and a half after my purchase date (so additional 6 week wait for the cashback to be unlocked). After 4 months, the temporary cashback is still pending / locked. I don't trust Befugal to credit my rebates consistantly or timely.

Shadowlady1 on November 29, 2012
I am glad I joined. I was shopping anyway so why not get a little cash back whenever I can. Make sure you are logged in & use your link to the stores. They even offer extra savings with coupon codes. Cash back is fun!

James on June 05, 2012
Rates are good and I was paid out the full amount requested.
