*CARD LINKING IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE*
The linked card program will be winding down in preparation for changes to card benefits that will be received.
There are three ways to earn cash back, Linked Card, eGift Card, and Online. To find the best deal, use the PayForward Website and search for a merchant. Each merchant shows the method of payment (or a way to earn cash back) Swipe, Scan or Print, or Online.
1. Linked Card: Use a linked debit or credit card at a participating PayForward merchant. You'll receive cash back once your card is charged. Use your debit card as a credit card only (do not use the PIN).
2. eGift Cards (Scan or Print): Purchase an eGift Card with a linked debit or credit card or use your PayForward account balance. For in-store purchases, the sales associate will either scan the eGift Card's barcode or enter the number of the eGift Card to complete your purchase. For online purchases, you can also use an eGift Card by entering the eGift Card number when you check out. For some merchants, you will need to print the eGift card and present it at checkout for the sales associate to either scan or enter the number of the eGift Card to complete your purchase.
IMPORTANT: You will only be able to access PayForward to retrieve your eGift cards until November 1, 2023.
PLEASE USE YOUR GIFT CARDS NOW. If you have unused gift cards that you cannot use right away, please copy the entire gift card code and PIN (if shown).
Can I use my gift cards after that date?
Yes, the gift card remains valid, however you will no longer be able to access it via the portal.
How do I know which gift cards are used?
We cannot see your transaction history or balances on a gift card. We do not know if a gift card is used or not. If you're not sure of the balance for a gift card, the best place to check is the retailer website, just like you would for a plastic gift card.
3. Online: To earn cash back for online purchases, you will need to click through PayForward Website to get to the merchant's Website every time you want to shop online and the order must be shipped. Your cash back will arrive upon merchant confirmation in approximately 30 days. Your cash back will arrive upon merchant confirmation in approximately 30 days. To learn more, click here.
