Does Shopping Through Big Crumbs Cost More?

You do not pay more when you shop through Big Crumbs.   Prices are exactly the same as they would be if you shopped directly at the retailer.

How Do I Know How Much I Have Earned?

All Big Crumbs members have an account manager found in their back office which contains the following information:

  • The number of referrals that have signed up using your link and the number of people they referred.
  • The amount of cash back you’ve generated from your own shopping.
  • The amount of revenue you’ve earned from the shopping done by your referrals.
  • A monthly statement which outline earnings and rebate amounts from the previous month.
  • Your payment history.

It usually takes 1 to 2 weeks for credits to appear in your account but for some retailers it can take up to a month.

If you happen to make two purchases from the same retailer on any given visit you need to click through again to the retailer before you make your second purchase in order to re-activate your credit.

You also have the option of using your QuickCrumb Bookmark to re-activate your credit.  A purchase is defined as a single checkout transaction which contains one or more items.

How Do I Get Paid By Big Crumbs?

Members are paid once per month provided their Big Crumbs account has a minimum balance of $5 to cash out.  Payments are processed on the 15th of every month unless the 15th is a holiday or weekend.

If that’s the case payments will be processed the next business day.

Payments are made one month in arrears so rebates and commissions earned in January are sent out in March.  This allows time for returns.

Big Crumbs offers two payment methods, Paypal or Big Crumbs Prepaid MasterCard.  Members who apply for the Big Crumbs Prepaid MasterCard will automatically have their card loaded on payday each month.

Paypal payments are sent to the email address that you use to register.

Is Big Crumbs Legitimate?

I only came across two complaints about Big Crumbs.  Each one was from a eBay customers who made a large number of purchases totaling amounts in the thousands.

It appeared that the transactions on the products that were not credited were either never completed for whatever reason or the product was returned.

How Much Can You Expect To Earn With Big Crumbs?

The amount you earn from Big Crumbs depends on the number of people you refer and the amount of shopping they do.  You may not make a lot, but one thing is for sure…if you shop online you can definitely save money by purchasing through Big Crumbs!

Big Crumbs mission is to help people enjoy better lives with less financial stress.

If you would like to get discounts of up to 80% and free shipping on the products you already purchase online, then give Big Crumbs a try.
