Learn how to get cash back with your everyday purchases with U by BB&T®.
Welcome to the demo for BB&T Deals—the feature that helps you earn cash back for everyday purchases you make with your BB&T Debit and Prepaid cards.
First of all, you don't need to sign up or enroll. BB&T Deals are automatically available to you as long as you have an eligible debit or prepaid card at BB&T.
You'll notice that the BB&T Deals tile will show up automatically on your U dashboard if you're logging in on a desktop. In the mobile app, it's easy to add the Deals tile to your dashboard, like this.
The Deals tile will give you relevant offers from BB&T that are based on your purchase activity. Like 10% cash back on your next trip to a favorite restaurant or store.
To take advantage of the offers, here's all you have to do:
Add the deal either by tapping on your mobile phone or clicking on your computer. The deal will show you the offer, how much cash back you'll get and the expiration date. After you add the deal, just shop at the store using your debit or prepaid card. And the cash back will be credited to your account the following month—for most purchases.
So, I'm going to add this offer for Chili's, who's offering 10% cash back. All I have to do now is use my debit or prepaid card to pay for a meal before the deal expires. And I get 10% cash back right into my account. It's that easy.
Click. Shop. Earn. Simple, Right?
And be assured, your personal information is never shared with the retailers who offer these cash back deals.
The more you use your card, the more deals you will get.
Remember, in order to earn cash back, you've got to add your deals before you shop.
And, there's no harm in adding every deal that comes your way. If you don't end up using it, there's no penalty.
By the way, we'll send you deal alerts, too. We'll notify you when a new one is available so you never miss out on any deals.
We hope this demo is helpful. And we hope the new BB&T Deals puts a lot of cash back in your pocket.
