Honr.it - Honor a Charity

You may create an honr.it link to any one of 150+ charities. Edeems increases awareness and raises money for charities with your help. All you have to do is create a link in honor of a cause.

How do i earn Edeems Rewards?

It's money in your pocket or cash to be donated to a charity on your behalf. You earn Edeems Rewards two ways: (1)in the form of automatic rebates when qualified purchases are made at one of our participating Stores or (2)(optional) through display ads when your link is Out-of-Network.

We offer many scenarios for earning rewards. Learn how to earn by visiting How it Works.

In-Network Links vs. Out-Of-Network Links

An In-Network link is defined as any link to one of our 1,000's of Stores offering cash back. In-Network links earn rewards based on commission of a qualified sale.

An Out-Of-Network link is defined as anything not In-Network such as a link to a news article. When creating an Out-Of-Network link you have the option of accruing rewards through display ads.

Real-Time Analytics

Track all of your link history, personal shopping history, transaction & payment history in real time within My Account.

How long will I have to wait for Rewards to post to My Account?

While most participating merchants report in just a few days, others may take up to 30 days. Nothing will show in your account until the merchant reports the sale to us. If after 30 days you still do not see anything, please complete a Transaction Inquiry found in My Account. We're on the same side, so if we do not get paid you do not get paid.

How long will I have to wait for my Rewards to be available?

Depending on the participating merchant, 91 - 121 days. Merchants have 90 days to reverse a transaction in case an item within your order is returned. We cannot pay you until the merchant pays us.

May I write-off the funds I donated to charity?

Unfortunately not at this time. Edeems makes one lump sum deposit on behalf of its members to each charity quarterly. If you registered before creating your charitable link then your name will be included in the letter to the charity. If you become a Top Donor you will be recognized across our site as a Top Donor.
