The Reward Discount will be reflected on your first Periodic Statement issued after the Reward Discount is earned and will apply for all Billing Cycles going forward.
I achieved a tier but do not see the discount in My Account or on My Rewards tab?
You may have pending points. If you log in to the My Account page and determine based on your transaction history that you should be in a different tier or are missing points, you may reach out to customer support at (877) 836-1518.
I received an email on my Mobiloans Reward information. What does it mean?
Receiving emails about Mobiloans Rewards just means you are enrolled in the program and will receive emails about your Point balance and accrual history and the Reward Level you have achieved. You may opt out of these emails any time by clicking the ‘Email Opt-out’ link within the email or managing your contact preferences by logging in to My Account or calling our customer support at (877) 836-1518.
Where can I locate my current Reward Level and see how many Points I need to get to the next Reward Level?
It’s easy... you can log in to My Account and access the ‘My Rewards’ tab. You will see your Point balance and accrual history and the Reward Level you have achieved, along the number of Points required before you achieve the next Reward Level.
How often are my Points updated? I see ‘Pending’ – what does that mean?
Your Point balance is updated based on your Points-earning activity (see chart above). For example, if you recently paid your minimum due payment in full and on time, you may notice on your most recent payment that the Points show as pending. Those Points will be fully posted to your Points balance seven days after the date you made your payment.
I missed a payment – does my discount go away? When can I begin earning points again?
No, we will never negatively change your Reward Level. After missing a payment, you will need to make three successful payments so that you can regain your eligibility to resume earning points.
