How do I sign up?
Sign up now using our quick and easy registration form. It’s quick and you can start shopping and earning Cash Back as soon as you activate your account when you receive your activation email.
How do I make purchases?
Once you are signed-in, browse the SHOP section on 21st Century Rewards to find the store you want to shop. Then click to view details about that store. From there you can click “SHOP NOW” to open up the store site and start shopping.
How soon is my cash credited to my on-line account?
Because of the logistics with reporting back and forth with our Merchants, it usually takes 3-5 business days but can take as long as 3 months as some merchants wait until after the return period expires to report purchases.
When do I get my cash?
21st Century Rewards pays members cash on purchases once you have accrued $15.00 and the 60 day return window has passed. You have the option to receive payment via PayPal or check. When you become eligible for payment, you will receive an email from us to select your cash back method and request your payment.

What’s the catch? How does 21st Century Rewards make money?
There’s no catch! We are dedicated to the idea of giving our members maximum value in cash! We don’t mark-up prices, and we don’t mark-up shipping and handling charges. By going through 21st Century Rewards, you have access to the same products as when shopping directly at the store - at the regular store prices or, in some cases, at the special store deal. So how do we make money? We derive our income primarily from marketing partnerships with our merchants, as well as through the services we offer.
What do I get when I refer my friends and family to 21st Century Rewards?
You’ll earn 10% of the cash back rebates that your referrals earn. So if your friend earns $50.00 in cash back rebates, you’ll earn $5.00, just for being the one that introduced them to 21st Century Rewards.
