Can I earn cash back with Petal?

If you've got a Petal card, you've got the opportunity to earn cash back. But depending on whether you have Petal 1 or Petal 2, the ways you can earn cash back are a bit different. Check out some of the FAQs below and the Petal Perks Program for more details. 

 

Earning cash back

Petal 1 Petal 2
If you have Petal 1, you can earn cash back with Petal Offers. Merchant offers are automatically loaded to your Petal account. When you make a purchase with a merchant that meets the requirements listed in the Offer terms, you’ll earn cash back based on their offer. Cash back earned from offers will be added to your Cash Back Wallet the following billing cycle.

 

 

Redeeming cash back (Petal 1 & Petal 2)

How do I redeem cash back?

You can redeem the cash back in your Cash Back Wallet as a statement credit up to the amount of your current balance. If the amount of Cash Back you’d like to redeem is over 20 dollars, you can also redeem it by giving us a call and requesting a check or an ACH transfer to your bank account. 

To redeem cash back as a statement credit, head over to the Perks page of your Petal account and click 'redeem.' On the next screen, you’ll be able to enter the amount of cash back you’d like to redeem—you can redeem either a portion of what’s available in your Cash Back Wallet, or you can redeem all of it. Just swipe to confirm. It will be labeled as ‘Cash Back Credit’ on your statement for the billing period in which you’ve redeemed it and will show up on your Petal account activity feed.

When can I redeem the cash back I’ve earned?

You can redeem the cash back you earn from both Rewards and Offers as soon as you see it in your Cash Back Wallet the following month. For example, if you earn $25 cash back during the May billing cycle, it should show up in your Cash Back Wallet in the June billing cycle.   

How can I keep track of my cash back activity?

Petal makes it super simple to keep tabs on your cash back activity. If you head to the Perks page of your Petal account, you’ll be able to see your:

  • Lifetime Cash Back - how much cash back you’ve earned in total. 
  • Cash Back Wallet - how much cash back you can redeem right now. 
  • Available in X days - this feature illustrates when the cash back you’ve earned is available to be redeemed. 
  • Rewards Status - the percentage of cash back you’re currently earning on purchases (Petal 2 only). 

Who is eligible to earn cash back?

All Petal members who are in good standing are eligible to earn cash back. You’ll be automatically enrolled in Offers if you’re approved for Petal 1, and both Offers and Rewards if you have Petal 2. 

 

Cash Back Offers (Petal 1 & Petal 2) 

How do I earn cash back with Offers

If you have Petal 1 or Petal 2, you can earn cash back with Petal Offers. Merchant offers are automatically loaded to your Petal account. When you make a purchase with a merchant that meets the requirements listed in the Offer terms, you’ll earn cash back based on their offer. Cash back earned from offers will be added to your Cash Back Wallet the following billing cycle. 

Do I need to do anything at check out to accept an Offer? 

All you need to do is make a purchase as you normally would and check out with your Petal card. You’ll automatically earn cash back when you meet the merchant’s requirements for an active Offer.

Can I accept an Offer by using contactless payments or chip readers?

If you have Petal 2, payments using chip readers, contactless payments, and digital wallets work the same way as swiping your card. Petal 1 does not support contactless payments yet (but will soon), so keep an eye out for updates!
