Cashblack was established after years of research and development found that there was a direct correlation between the socioeconomic impacts of racism and the lack of support for Black-owned businesses. We found that the most effective way to combat this issue was to create a way to incentivize patronage in these businesses and have the retailers invest back into the patrons. As such, the retailers on Cashblack are all businesses who identify as “Black-owned” but we welcome everyone to join Cashblack to support our support of Black-owned businesses.
Cashblack’s definition of Black-owned allows its retail partners to identify as such.
Cashblack is open to everyone over 18 years of age.
The time it takes to receive your cashback may vary depending on the retailer and their terms and conditions. Some retailers may provide cashback within a few days of purchase, while others may take several weeks or even months.

In general, cashback will be credited to your Cashblack account once it has been approved by the retailer.
You can withdraw your cashback through a bank transfer, PayPal, gift cards or by donating to one of our affiliated goodwill causes.
