REAL-TIME REWARDS (Available in select markets)
It's asking me to link my card when I try to redeem a reward. What do I do?
Link your card using a desktop or laptop computer, or using the mobile web browser on your mobile device. At this time, you cannot link your card via the Buzz Points mobile app. If you choose not to link your card, you may still redeem your points for e-gift cards located in the "National" tab, but you will not be able to redeem your points for a reward at a Preferred Business.
**You must link your card and claim a reward before making the qualifying purchase to receive your reward via statement credit. **
LINKING YOUR CARD (Available in Real-Time Rewards markets only)
How do I link my card?
Link your card using a desktop or laptop computer, or using the mobile web browser on your mobile device. At this time, you cannot link your card via the Buzz Points mobile app. Upon logging in, you'll be prompted to link your card. Click "Link Card," then follow the onscreen instructions to link your card. Be sure to use a card connected to the account you use to earn Buzz Points.
How many cards can I link?
Currently, only one card can be linked, so choose the card you use most often. Multiple-card linking capabilities are on the horizon!
I can't link my card.
If you can't link your card, first, double check to ensure all the information matches what's printed on your card. If you are still unable to link your card, contact support.
REWARD-QUALIFYING TRANSACTIONS (Available in Real-Time Rewards markets only)
How do I make a qualifying transaction?
Your first step is to use your points to claim a reward. Once you have your reward, simply visit the business and make a purchase for at least the amount of the reward (for example, a $10 reward requires a purchase of at least $10 to qualify). You must choose "credit" during the checkout process. Once the qualifying transaction is complete, you will receive an email verifying that you have completed a qualifying transaction.
How do I run a transaction as "credit"?
When you swipe your card or use a chip reader during checkout, select the "credit" option, if available. If that is not an option, when prompted to enter your PIN, click "Enter/Go/Green Button." If you are unsure, ask the clerk. They should be able to assist in running a credit transaction.
Can I redeem multiple rewards on a single purchase?
Not at this time. You will receive one statement credit (reward) per qualifying transaction. Rewards are redeemed via statement credit in the order in which they were claimed. The first reward redeemed = first statement credit applied. If you intend to redeem multiple rewards in a single visit to a Preferred Business, you'll need to complete separate qualifying transactions for each reward.
STATEMENT CREDITS (Available in Real-Time Rewards markets only)
When should I expect to see my statement credit?
Your statement credit will be applied in 7-10 business days from your qualifying transaction.
How long does it take to process a statement credit?
Once we submit the statement credit to your institution, it can take 1-2 business days for it to be deposited into your account.
I didn't receive my statement credit. What do I do now?
If you didn't receive your statement credit, please verify the following:
Did you use the card linked to your Real-Time Rewards program for the purchase?
Did you spend at least the amount of the reward and select "Credit" upon checkout?
Did you go to the right location? Many businesses will have multiple locations offered. A good rule when claiming a reward is to look at the location on the first checkout page before redeeming your points.
If you are confident that all three are true, contact Buzz Points cardholder support. We'll gladly investigate the issue for you.
Fill out the form and we'll contact you shortly.
