One vital thing you have to understand is, not all debit cards are not eligible to be linked to your account, i.e Cards that are not managed and processed by Visa U.S.A payment system, the Mastercard payment system, or American express payment system. In order to eligible to receive our full service including cashback you must have a card issued by a U.S bank.
You must connect at least one valid debit or credit card ('Payment Card') to your account in order to earn
rewards from us for qualified purchases of products or services or for referring other users to download the Joyest application.
Please note that you are not eligible to link all credit and debit cards to your account. We have the absolute discretion to determine whether a card is valid for a payment card.
For example, some cards of Visa, Mastercard and American Express cannot be linked, including, but not restricted to, prepaid cards, business and corporate cards, purchasing cards, store cards, which can only used at their respective stores, government-administered prepaid cards (including Electronic Benefit (EBT) cards), healthcare cards (including Health Savings Account (HSA) cards, Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards, and insurance prepaid cards).
Use of Enrolled Cards and Transaction Information
Cash back you receive as a result of purchasing at a local merchant will be viewable in your account within 1-7 business days after you make the transaction. Cash back you receive from one of our online brands will be viewable in your account after the return period has expired which ranges between 60-90 business days after you make the online transaction from that brand. Business days means Monday - Friday, excluding federal banking holidays.
If you believe you’re qualified for a cashback but have not received a cashback, you have 30 days to provide us with an evidence showing that you made the transaction with the the right type of payment card that’s linked to our app. Any request made after these deadlines will not be honored, and the cashback associated with the request will be denied.
Teams have different rules to play by when it comes to accessing and receiving the team’s cashback. They must first meet the right amount of people required to unlock the store, once the the required amount of people have formed a team and the store is unlocked. They will be able receive the team’s cashback. Each team’s member will be able receive the team’s cashback amount but it will show as pending, that’s because till everyone in the team has completed a transaction at the unlocked store, the team won’t be able transfer the cashback. When the last person makes a purchase at the unlocked store, all team members are able to transfer their cashbacks into their linked card.

unable to access such transaction details from the Payment Card Network connected with your Payment Card.

3. Payments made using other payment mechanisms (such as a digital wallet or a third party payment systems, where you may select your payment card as a means of funds but do not apply your payment card directly to the merchant), (4) payments of current accounts, balance transfers, or (5) transactions that are not accepted or sent to the Payment Card Network.Do not use a PIN while you pay for a qualifying transaction with your Payment cards if you want the purchase to be qualified for rewards.
