How do I make sure that I am earning cash back?

Purchases you make at Gear Obsession stores are only credited if you start your shopping session at and have your cookies enabled.

If you click through Gear Obsession and make a purchase, then surf elsewhere on the Web and return to that store and make a second purchase, your second purchase will not earn a cash back reward. (You must click through a Gear Obsession link every time you shop at a store site.) If you use multiple windows on your browser, the window in which you shop at the store must have come from a Gear Obsession link.


Why did I not earn cash back on a certain order? 

Gear Obsession and the partnering retailer uses internet browsing cookies to track you click and purchase. The most common reason cash back is not earned is your web browser has cookies turned off. On your web browser, ensure you have cookies enabled before you click on the retailers’ links.

Also, if after you click on the retailer’s link on Gear Obsession, you leave the retailers page to browser the web, look for coupons, or reviews, etc.. you cookie will expire. If you do this, come back to and click on the retailer’s link before you make the purchase.

If you feel you should have received cash back but didn’t send us an email at with the retailer name, order number, order date, and the order amount before shipping and taxes and we can submit an inquiry with the retailer. The retailer then will either accept or deny the request. The timing of the decision varies by retailer.


What if I want to return or cancel an order?

Returns are subject to the return policy of the store from which you purchased your product. If you return or cancel an item, we have to reverse any cash back earned from that sale.

Exchanges also usually reverse cash back awards. In the process of an exchange, the store cancels the old order and replaces it with a new one. When the store creates the new order, it usually fails to capture the referral from Gear Obsession and credit us a commission.

To avoid losing cash back on an exchange, we recommend returning the merchandise and making a new transaction using Gear Obsession.


Can I use Gear Obsession if I live outside the U.S. and Canada?

Yes, as long as the store you are purchasing from will ship outside of the U.S. and Canada. All cash back payments are made in U.S. dollars and you must have a pay pal account to receive your cash back check.
