It usually takes about 5 - 7 days for your cashback purchases to be processed so please don't worry if not all of your cashback appears if you top up quite soon after you have spent. Where possible, we will always credit your account as soon as we are advised of the cashback to be awarded. Earning cashback from online spending is subject to a few restrictions.
