    When does the rewards expire

    • Janice

      Mine expires on sept 15th

  2. Sandy

    In the app it says “sign in or create new account for $10 credit” wonder if I could just sign in and still get it?

    • Alli

      I just signed in with my excising account and added a new payment method. It said it would be in my wallet within 4 hours.

      • Alli


        • Ashlynn

          Same. Updated the card and it said give the app 4 hours

      • Susan K

        I am not able to get this method to work?

  3. SD

    Can I install the app from App Store without sending the text message and still get the reward? My service provider blocks all the text messages to such numbers

    • shasha

      Yes you can. I did the same

    • Amy

      Yeah I just followed the link in the post and download it. It’s pending now

  7. Amy

    I wonder if this will work with the $10 off $25 offer they do. That would make a steal of a deal

    • Indhu

      Yes it can be used together

      • Amy

        Awesome. Thank you!

  8. jenn

  14. sban

    I don’t have jcpenney store nearby. Do they provide free shipping? Is there any minimum purchase required? Thanks.

    • charlyt37

      Yes free shipping for orders up to a certain amount. Varies though, so you have to check their website

  15. Patty

    Says I have to add a payment method to the app? ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป

  16. Patty

    Says I have to add a payment method to the app. Anyone else have to do that?

    • Misti

      Yes I used a master card gift card and it worked for me

    • Patty

      Sorry! now I see in the post you must add a payment method. Na! Access to my credit is not worth $10.

      • Misti

        That is why I used a pre paid gift card and it worked just fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Jane D

        Not sure why you’re hesitant to put your credit card in.. wouldn’t you be giving them your credit card info when you make a purchase? You can always delete the saved card from the account later.

  17. hellfire gainz

    Can the reward be used in store?

    • Valerie

      Yes in store and online.

      • hellfire gainz

        Thank you

  18. Shilpa

    How much time it took for you to add reward $10 after adding payment method

    • Amy

      Mine was pending instantly. From pending to crediting in a few hours

  19. Megan

    I was an existing account holder, just had to add a new saved payment option on the app and I got the $10 credit! Yay, thanks!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Perfect! You’re welcome Megan!

  20. Bonnie

    I don’t think it’s working. ๐Ÿ™ it’s not doing anything for me. No notification that it would take 4 hours. I’m bummed.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Darn! Hoping it pops up for you soon!

    • Valerie

      Did not do anything for me as well. No notification no reward. Darn.

  21. anon

    Downloaded the app, no $10.
    Really nice ๐Ÿค”

    • Marie

      I had went on the live chat and asked the rep and she credit my account the 10.00.

      • Sus

        How did you find the live chat link? I’ve been struggling to find it and when I call the number they say the wait time is at least 15 minutes. Thanks!

        • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

          Hi there! You should be able to find it when clicking through the link above and scrolling down to click on “customer service”.

    • Susan S.

      honestly there are more steps than just downloading the app. You have to sign in or create an Account. Then you have to add a new payment method. then I actually had to close the app & reopen it to see my rewards pending. If you follow the steps posted it should work.

  22. Jessica {Six Clever Sisters}

    Yay! Got mine. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  23. Susan S.

    yea reward pending! Thanks so much! this will be helpful for back to school shopping!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

  24. Nancy

    I see 25% off introductory coupon for signing up but no $10 ??

  25. Valerie

    It did not work for me. Signed in and added another credit card last night, and nothing saying reward pending. Looked at it this afternoon and nothing. Hmmm. Damn.

  26. Cindy Martin

    I did this 24 hrs ago still says pending

  27. Ihearthip

    I did it over 24 hrs ago but no reward yet. Funny there’s still a message on my app saying you can get $10 if you add a payment.

  28. Ihearthip

    Ok yay! For some reason my pymt didn’t get saved the first time. I just did it again and got the pending msg immediately. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  29. Shivani Jain

    Is this still working?

  30. Lina

    I did all steps but got no $10.00 reward ๐Ÿ˜•
