What are Deal Genius IQ Points?
Deal Genius IQ Points is a loyalty program that makes cents!
IQ Points work like cash and can be redeemed for any merchandise on dealgenius.com. You earn 3% back on every purchase in IQ Points and bonus points for purchasing certain items. Each dollar spent (not including shipping and tax) earns you 100 IQ points!
How can I start earning Deal Genius IQ Points?
First, if you haven’t already, you must register with dealgenius.com. If you are not yet registered, register here. You must sign in before you check out to earn, accumulate and redeem points. Every purchase can earn IQ Points.
How do I redeem my points?
Points are NOT automatically applied to your purchase. Be sure to log in everytime you shop with Deal Genius to earn and redeem points. On your Shopping Cart page, be sure to use the "Checkout with Credit Card" button rather than the "Check out with PayPal" or "Pay with Amazon" buttons. You will still be able to select PayPal as your payment method later during checkout. When viewing your checkout page, under Payment Information, check the box next to Use My Rewards Points. We’ll need to confirm this flow with the new site.
Points cannot be applied toward shipping charges or sales tax.
How can I check my IQ Points balance?

How quickly after I earn my points can I spend them?
After your earning order ships, the points earned on that order will be available to spend.
If I return my order, what happens to my IQ Points?
For returned or otherwise refunded items, Deal Genius will reduce your points accordingly. If the points earned from your returned order have already been spent, Deal Genius may additionally adjust your refund accordingly.
Do my IQ Points expire?
Yes, points expire after 365 days. Unused expired points will be forfeited. We’ll send you a courtesy email when the expiration date is approaching. As long as you purchase from Deal Genius once per year, your points will never expire. Every time you purchase from Deal Genius, your entire point balance gets a fresh 365 days.
Are there any limits on how many points I can earn?
Generally no, but if the program is being abused, Deal Genius reserves the right to deny or deduct points.
What does not earn points?
Shipping, sales tax and free items earn no points. If you are not registered, you will not earn points. You will only earn points on the merchandise price after any discounts or redeemed points have been applied. Rewards cannot be redeemed for cash.
What if I don't want to be part of the IQ Points program?
