7. What if I made a purchase and didn't receive a reward?

We understand how frustrating this can be, and we'll work with you to make sure we're doing whatever it takes to solve the issue. Please read the following information to see if it relates to your transaction:

  • Make sure the card registered is the same card you used to make the purchase.
  • The card must be registered before the purchase is made to be eligible for rewards.
  • You'll need to click on an offer to activate it before each purchase. Please look at the offer and activate it beforehand to ensure you receive your reward!
  • Not all credit cards are accepted at every participating business, so please review the business' pages before shopping.
  • Businesses on the program are always changing, so check the Local Offers frequently to be sure the business is still participating.
  • Purchases made through third-party ordering services such as Grubhub, Eat24, ChowNow, Groupon, Square, Toast etc. are not eligible for cash back or promotions.
  • You need to run all transactions as credit even when using a debit card. If you are entering your pin we will not be able to track the transaction.
  • In the event that your transaction does not fall under any of these circumstances, please note that some earnings can take 3-5 days from the date of purchase to show up.
  • If you don't see the rewards in your Wallet after 7 days, please email us about any purchases you made that didn't get credited to your account. It's important to have a receipt or processing information from the business to ensure a registered card was used. We'll follow up with you shortly!
8. Why do I need to link my card? Is my information secure?
We want you to rest-assured that Tophatter and Empyr use bank level encryption to secure that your payment credentials cannot be compromised. By securely registering your debit/credit cards, your transactions at participating businesses can be tracked in association with Visa, Master Card, and American Express. After the transaction occurs, the card provider notifies Empyr of the purchase amount, and we credit your account with the reward.

9. Can I add more cards, or remove a card?

Yes, you can add and remove linked cards from your Wallet.

10. Can I participate in multiple rewards programs to stack my rewards?

While some businesses participate in multiple rewards programs, customers are only eligible to earn rewards through one program per card. If you are enrolled in another program, you may have received a cash back notification, but the reward was blocked by another rewards program linked to the card you used.
