BeFrugal Account FAQ

  • How do I request my Cash Back?

    Visit the Payments page of your account to select your preferred payment method and request a payment.

    You need to accumulate the minimum amount, specified on the Payments page, to be able to request your Cash Back payment.

    You will receive your payment via check, Direct Deposit to U.S. Bank Account, PayPal or eGift Card.

  • What is a Shopping Trip?

    Anywhere on the BeFrugal website or in a BeFrugal email, phone app or browser add-on, all of your clicks on any Coupon, Deal or Shop Now button are recorded in the Shopping Trips table.

    A cash-back-eligible click will always have a click number. If you ever need to inquire about missing Cash Back, this number comes in handy when contacting BeFrugal support.

    If the cash-back-eligible click results in a purchase, the store will notify BeFrugal about your order within 7 days or less and a green money bag icon will appear next to your Shopping Trip, indicating that you have received Cash Back for your purchase.

  • How do I edit my email/password?

    On the Profile page, you can update your password and email address, as well as any other information about yourself.

    If you have not previously done so, you will need to confirm your email address to access your BeFrugal account.

    Changing Password
    If you cannot login to your account, on the Login pop-up, click on Forgot Password? You will then receive an email with a link that will allow you to create a new password.

    If you have already logged in, find 'My Account' at the top of the BeFrugal site and, on the Profile page, click on 'Change Password.'

    Changing Email
    To change your current BeFrugal email, log into your member account. On the Profile page, click on 'Change Email.'

  • How do I change my payment preferences?

    In your BeFrugal account, on the Payments page you can switch between payment via check, via Direct Deposit to U.S. Bank Account, via PayPal, and via eGift Card.

  • How do I change my email subscription preferences?

    On the Email Subscriptions page, you can control all of the emails sent to you from BeFrugal. Subscribe or unsubscribe from newsletters, store updates, personalized offers, and more. Toggle the On/Off button to your preferred setting for each email type to change your settings.

  • How can I participate in the BeFrugal Refer-A-Friend program?

    You will receive a bonus when you refer a friend by using Refer-a-Friend invites on BeFrugal. This bonus will become available when the member has met the requirements of the Refer-a-Friend program terms. Members may earn multiple Refer-a-Friend Bonuses by referring multiple new members.
