Where does the money come from to pay bux to me and the non profit?

When you shop through bux180 at one of our retail partners, we are paid a referral fee. We direct most of this referral fee to you and a percentage in the form of a donation to your selected cause.

If I return or cancel an order, what happens?

If you cancel or return an order that you earned bux on, we will be notified from that store and will reverse any bux you received from that purchase.

How does the tracking work?

Once you click a link on, we save a tracking number in our system, and send the same tracking number to the store that you visited. If you make a purchase, the tracking number is saved in the purchase details, and the dollar amount, date, and order number along with the tracking number are sent back to bux180. We then can match your tracking number to the purchase you made and award you the bux that you have earned.
