Yelp Cashback by Empyr Now Requires Offer Activation Before Each Use
Yelp Cashback sent out an email that you’ll have to activate each offer before using it.
We just wanted to let you know that we updated the Yelp Cash Back Terms of Service based on changes to the program by Empyr, our partner that powers Cash Back. Here’s what’s changed: Now you have to activate an offer before your purchase by tapping a button on the Yelp page of a participating business, or when the business appears in Yelp search results. Businesses can change or remove offers at any time, so check their Yelp page when you pay to make sure you’re all set to get your Cash Back rewards.
To me, the Yelp change is minor. The broader question is whether this means Empyr is moving to a model of requiring activation before use from ALL of their partners. One of the big highlights of card-link programs is the ability to ‘set and forget’. That’s still the case for most of them, yet some require activation before use. If Empyr moves to that model on all their partners it would be more a bummer.
We’ve updated our Complete List of Card Link Reward Programs.
