In April 2021 I signed up for 2 AT&T postpaid plans, and according to Befrugal I should be getting $100. However since then they the amount has been showing as pending, and when contacting Befrugal, they are just saying "we have sent a request to At&t in June, but we can't do more, and it's no guarantee that you will get paid." I have asked them if I can either get in touch with a supervisor at Befrugal, or an email to the department in charge of At&t's affiliate marketing, but according to "Todd" none can be provided. I just have to wait. How can this business practice be legal? They are promising people that if you fullfil certain obligations, like click on their link, and then not cancel the purchase, you will get paid. And when you don't they take zero responsibility. How can I know that they are not pocketing my $100 since that would be so easy for them - especially when they won't even let me contact At&t directly. Another thing that this Todd told me that I found strange, was that Befrugal don't get a cent from my purchase with At&t. If that's true how are they making their money? I've used Rakuten, and Swagbucks and never had this problem when signing up for a phone plan. They usually pay out within 60 days.

Tip for consumers:
Don't use it if you want a cash back
