Where is there a 5% card available these days?

I've filled up punchcards for my local gas station and the cafeteria at work. My punches haven't been approved for 3 days now, so I'm unable to redeem anything, and I can't seem to scan any new receipts for those places either.

anyone else having "invalid receipt" rejections? i've had a couple in the last few days. One was for a starbucks receipt, just like all of my previous Starbucks receipts

Put in my first check request. Brings back memories of Envaulted. Has anyone been paid?

Gas stations seem to be the best way to take advantage of this, especially if you do a couple of $20 top-ups a week instead of filling your tank.

I've got two in right now. One from about 3 weeks ago, and one from this past Monday. And yes, $20 at a time at the gas station will fill these cards quickly.

Update: their website now says that after Nov 22nd "you will earn restaurant vouchers as a reward for completing open or new cards".

Hope their turnaround time improves. Apps like Shopkick and Endorse manage to get your reward to you virtually immediately after you cash out.

hmm, I wonder if the restaurant vouchers are from restaurant.com? If so, that would make the value of the punchcard rewards nearly worthless.

Yeah, I hope the initial ones are cash at least. Mine are close to their max processing time.

I managed to get 4 in prior to the cutoff: 9/27, 10/26, 11/9 and 11/18; still have yet to receive any of them. Not overly concerned, as I'm not out anything if they do totally flake.

Oh well, fun while it lasted. I have zero interest in restaurant vouchers.

Woah, yeah, I have no interest in restaurant vouchers. Guess it's time to delete the app. That's a pretty shitty way to sneak it in there. I got a push message to my phone that made it sound like the restaurant.com vouchers were a bonus (something like everyone who completes a card by the end of the year gets a restaurant.com voucher). It wasn't until I read it here and confirmed in their online FAQ that the vouchers are in lieu of cash rewards, not a bonus.

Looks like its restaurant.com https://www.facebook.com/MyPunchCard/posts/295251560592833

Delete!

Great f-ing testimonial. Hurry up, sign me up.

Ugh. Envaulted all over again. Only far more annoying to do that receipt scanning crap.

App deleted.

Got a $50 restaurant gift card in the mail today. At least it didn't show up in my email, but still pretty crappy experience. Don't forget to leave a review after you delete this garbage:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gigway.punchca...

I was going to keep the app installed until I got payment for the cards I did complete, but a couple days ago my phone lost network connectivity, and I started getting errors from Punchcard about not being able to connect, despite the fact that I wasn't using punchcard. It even continued after I opened the app and specifically logged out. Being suspicious about what it was trying to transmit, and why, I uninstalled it. Probably won't get paid regardless.

Received my first $20 check on Tuesday (submission date of 9/27).

.

Hilarious - did not know it was restaurant.com vouchers. App will be deleted, thanks for the confirmation guys.

Make sure you leave a review in the App Store. They seem to leaving a bunch of suspicious 5 star reviews for themselves...

Off my phone the app goes!

Got a $50 restaurant.com voucher instead and I submitted before the announcement was made. Well, that was disappointing.

We made a bunch of submissions way before the announcement. So we lucked out and received TWO $50 restaurant.com certificates.... whamp whamp whamp.

Here's the letter I got in the mail. No cash, just restaurant.com voucher

Received same. No sign of any cash even though cards were submitted prior to the date they said they would begin the restaurant.com "voucher". Maybe their are still working on the check run they mentioned.

App long deleted...

Wow. Glad I never got around to the smart phone thing!

I've completed about 5 punchcards and haven't gotten anything yet, even the restaurant.com certificates.

There are a few restaurants near us that accept restaurant.com, so if I get certificates I'm sure we'll use them...I'm just not sure I'll keep snapping my receipts until all this is straightened out.

It's common for startups to offer better deals at the git-go and lower them later. I got in on the ground floor of some sites and did awesomely...then there was a big dip but I maintained my membership, and slowly but surely things started picking up again.

Just keep in mind that the value of a $25 restaurant.com coupon is about $2. Also, many restaurants don't accept them even if they are listed. They all come with restrictions such as "Valid Sunday-Thursday $50 minimum purchase"

Just got an email from them. Looks like it is getting worse:

That's funny. Based on "user feedback", people would rather have a chance to win something than actually get something? I notice that the link to their site for the "official rules" goes to a page that is not exactly loaded with details.

Ooh, use this to get Cash Back!
No wait, use it to get discount coupons.
No wait, use it to maybe get something, or not.

I have a question for u when do u get a check from this companies?? And how do u get it? So far I punched 11 times@ target and shouldn't it been on the 10th time that u get a 10 % Cash Back?

Those resturaunt.com vouchers are so cheap they are literally given away.
I saw a sale where you get a $50 (i think) one for $4.
