Certain Special Excluded Items

If a purchase on your Ebates Credit Card is comprised of items for which Cash Back is available on Ebates.com as well as items for which no Cash Back is available, then you will receive 3% Cash Back only on that portion of your purchase attributable to the items for which Cash Back is available on Ebates.com and 1% Cash Back on the remainder. For example, Cash Back is available in rotating categories on Amazon.com. If you purchase two products from Amazon.com with your Ebates Credit Card and Cash Back is available for only one of those products, you will receive 3% Cash Back on the price of the product for which Cash Back is available and 1% Cash Back on the balance of your purchase.

Cash Back is not earned on non-purchase charges on your Ebates Credit Card, such as interest, balance transfers, cash advances and fees.
