Q. Why is there a wait for "Pending Rebates" to move to "Available"?
A. Since most merchants have a period when returns and exchanges are allowed, we must provide a similar time frame, in which merchants can adjust rebates when orders are changed.
Please note, merchants have different return and cancellation policies. Ninety days allows us to cover all of our merchants' time limits for returns or changes to an order.
