How it Works

What is Get My PERKS? Get My PERKS works with local, national and regional businesses to provide you fun and unique experiences and products.  We want everyone in the area to be able to experience new things, so many PERKS are available at a steep discount.  New PERKS go online all the time. The offer is only available for a limited amount of time, so make sure to check back frequently so you don't miss out!

How do I buy a PERK? Click on the "Buy Now" button while the deal is active. Send the deal to your friends and tweet it, Facebook it or text it to everyone you think might be interested.

What happens after I buy a PERK? You will receive an email with details of your purchase and additional instructions.  In many cases, you will also get a voucher that you can print and take to a local business.  You can access any information about any of your purchases by logging into your account at

What if I want to use just part of the PERK and save the rest for later? In most cases, you may only use a PERK once at the merchant location and any remaining balance is forfeit. However, check the description of the PERK and the fine print for any specific information on redeeming your PERK.

If my name is on the Get My PERKS voucher, can the merchant charge my account? No. The merchant does not have access to any credit card information; this information is secure and not shared. They do have access to a list of purchasers and the voucher numbers to validate and redeem the deal.  

Is the transaction safe for me to use? Yes. The transaction uses SSL and other industry standard security features to ensure that no one else has access to your credit card information.

When I gift a PERK to a friend, will they have access to my account information? No.  There is a record of the transaction, the purchaser's name and the gifted consumer's name, along with a unique code. The payment information is secure inside your online account that no one has access to.

Can I combine my PERK with other offers the merchant might have presented previously? Probably not, but check the terms and description of the deal to make sure. If it doesn't say, you might check with the merchant before you redeem your PERK.

What if the merchant does not honor the offer? We go out of our way to vet each advertiser and make sure they live up to our high standards. On the rare occurrence that something happens and you're not satisfied, we will refund the offer.  Sometimes we offer PERKS from selected partners (like Travelzoo or Deem).  There is always a line on the offer that says "Presented by Travelzoo" or similar.  In cases when you buy those items, we are required to honor the return policy of the presenting partner.  Those terms should be clearly spelled out in the fine print.  If you don't see them or have questions, just contact us before purcahseing and we'll get you the information you need.

What if I miss the expiration date? If you miss the expiration date on your offer, take heart, all is not lost! While the additional discounts are no longer available, you are still entitled to goods and services equal to the paid value of the voucher. To the extent required by applicable law, after the Deal Expiration Date, Merchant shall permit the purchaser to redeem the Certificate for the goods and services of the Merchant in the amount of the cash paid by purchaser, until that cash amount is redeemed in full. The Certificates will not be subject to any fees (including without limitation any usage, dormancy, inactivity or service fees).  That's a whole bunch of legal talk that means our clients are supposed to accept your voucher for the amount you paid if it's after the expiration date.

For example, if you spend $25 to buy a $50 voucher for your new favorite restaurant, but are unable to get there before the expiration date, you will still be entitled to $25 of food, drink and good times. The merchant is responsible by law to honor the certificate as noted above.

When can I use my credits and promo codes? Yeah!  You have free money to spend!!  We love issuing promo codes and credits so you can try PERKS with even DEEPER savings.  There are always restrictions with these types of promotions and we want to make sure you understand that not every offer can be purchased with credits or can be discounted further with a promo code.  While the majority of our offers are not restricted, we do have some offers that are already discounted so much that we can't allow additional discounts.  Offers from our presenting partners (Like Travelzoo or Deem) cannot be purchased with promo codes or credits.

**NOTE** There are some exclusions to this, especially for event-based PERKS.  If you buy vouchers that you redeem for tickets to an event, and the event is over, there is no way for us to honor that voucher sine the event is in the past.  Please make sure you read the fine print for each offer carefully since with some offers, we will not issue refunds if the event has already happened.

Why can't I add this PERK to my shopping cart? Our shopping cart feature is getting better and better, but there are still some restrictions.  Our partner offers (Like those that say 'Presented by Travelzoo) cannot be added to a shopping cart that already has non-partner offers.  So, if you find a partner offer you love, you might have to purchase it separately after you've purchased the other items in your Shopping Cart.
