How it works
How does Kerching work?
It’s actually really simple! You just need to sign in or create an account, find the retailer that you are looking to purchase from and proceed to make the transaction.
Once you’ve done this we’ll automatically apply 1 (or more) credits to your account with 12-24 hours depending on your transaction total (For eBay this can take up to 3-5 days. For all other retailers we can normally apply your credits within an hour.
Armed with your credits, simply enter one of ten competitions for your chance to win. We’ll email and let you know when you need to check the results.
How many credits will I earn?
Most of our retailers allow you to earn one credit per £5 spent, up to a maximum of 40 credits. However we run regular promotions on specific retailers where you can earn more than this. Our bonus retailers allow you to earn double or triple credits (e.g. 2 or 3 credits per £5 spent, up to a maximum of 40 credits). Have a look at our current featured retailers by clicking here.
For a small number of retailers we may limit the total credits you’re able to earn per transaction. These will be stated clearly on retailer pages.
What retailers are eligible?
We currently list over 300 retailers with plans to add more over time. To find out the retailers you can shop with and earn credits, simply click here.
Is there a minimum transaction requirement?
At present the minimum transaction amount to earn credits for most retailers is £4.99 excluding shipping across all retailers. For a small number of specific retailers the minimum transaction amount to qualify for earning credits may be higher (this will be stated in the terms and conditions on retailer pages)
Can’t I just tell you what I bought and you can put it through the system for me?
Unfortunately we are unable to do this. All transactions need to be made by clicking on a Kerching retailer link. This ensures that we can log and validate your transaction in order to add your credits.
What do you mean by a “qualified purchase”?
A qualified purchase is a sale that has been made through Kerching from one of our retail partners’ websites. We will be notified by the retailer about a qualified purchase as long it is complete and can no longer be refunded or cancelled – we have to protect ourselves and our partner retailers from products being returned.
So if the purchase has been refunded or cancelled, it’s disqualified and no longer eligible to win.
Do my credits expire?
Credits earned through Kerching are valid for 12 months. If an account becomes inactive for 12 months any credits within the account will expire.
My credits have not been added to my account
Credits can take up to 48 hours to be added to your account although with most retailers this happen instantly. For eBay transactions please allow 3-5 days.
What are "cookies" and how do I enable them?
Cookies are small pieces of information stored in your browser. We use them so that the store knows how much commission to pay us, and we know how much to pay you if you win! They’re probably enabled already but if they’re not, you can discover how to enable them on your browser at http://www.whatarecookies.com/enable.asp.
Make sure to clear all cookies before using Kerching. This way, once in our site, you can enable our cookies so your purchase can track without interference.
How do credits work with subscription items?
You will only get the stated amount of credits when you make your first payment, you will not get any credits on the following months.
Why haven’t my credits from my Tesco shop or ASDA shown up in my account?
If you are a new customer to Tesco’s or ASDA online, you’re credits should automatically be applied to your account (Usually instantly but this can take up to 24 hours). If you’re an existing Tesco’s or ASDA member, then please contact us with proof of purchase and we will manually credit your account with 1 credit.
Untracked Reserve & Collect
All products purchased via Reserve & Collect at any retailer must be purchased on line and paid for so it can be processed through Kerching properly. There may be a chance that items can be untracked and not processed through the Kerching system, therefore we cannot under any circumstances track an item that has been bought and then paid for at the collection site if untracked.
What prize draws can I enter?
We currently run over 10 prize draws at any one time, with most lasting 7 days. You can view all currently available prize draws by clicking here.
How long do I have to claim my prize?
If you are a prize draw winner we hold your prize for a total of 7 days – you will be automatically notified by email to check your account when prize draws end. If you do not claim your prize within this timeframe you will lose the right to receive it.
How do I enter prize draws?
To enter prize draws login to your kerching account and proceed to the Prize Draw page. Find your chosen prize draw and click “enter now”.
When do I found out whether I've won?
Most Prize Draws last 7 days so if you enter early you’ll need to wait until the draw expires. When this happens we’ll send you a notification by email. Remember at any time you can go to your account menu and view the status of your current prize draw entries.
How will I get my prize
If you are a winner you will be prompted in input your contact details and address. This will then allow us to forward on your prize
How long will it take to get my prize
On average prizes are sent out within 45 days but on occasions this may take longer
Why does it take so long for prizes to be dispatched?
This allows the retailer’s time to confirm your transaction. Once your transaction has been confirmed by the retailer we will send your prize straight out.
What if a retailer declines my transaction?
We would have a look at what the reason was for the transaction to have been declined. If it was declined through no fault of your own then we would still honour your prize and send it straight out to you.
If a transaction is declined due to you cancelling the item, returning the item, if you are declined (Only applicable on credit orders) or through any fault of your own, we then reserve the right to withdraw the offer of the prize.
Can I swap my prize for a different prize or money?
No. The prize that you win will be the prize that you receive*. This prize cannot be exchanged for Cash, Vouchers or anything else.
How will I know if I have won?
Once a prize draw closes we’ll send you an email to let you know. Simply log into your Kerching account and navigate to Prize Draws. From here click the button and see whether you’ve won!
How can I claim my prize?
Simply fill out your details on the form that appears on screen when you check whether you’ve won a prize draw
What do I do if my prize arrives damaged?
Always check your item before signing for it from the delivery driver, this way if it is damaged you can refuse delivery. If you have already signed for your item before checking the condition then please email email@example.com and include pictures and a description of the damage. PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY DAMAGE MUST BE REPORTED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF RECEIVING DELIVERY
Will my prize include a warranty?
