      All deals are redeemed at the business checkout. Select a deal you wish to redeem, tap the REDEEM DEAL tab, and present your BAMit deal to the cashier. After the discount is applied, enter the new total amount being paid into the number pad, and present your device to the cashier. The cashier will verify the deal by entering their 4-digit business PIN. Press next, and BAM! You just redeemed a great deal and earned BAMbucks.

    • 4. How do I invite my friends to BAMit?

      To invite a friend to BAMit, tap the INVITE tab in the app. Tap the INVITE FRIENDS button and enter the email address, and tap EMAIL INVITE. BAM! You just invited a friend. Or, you can tap the COPY INVITE TO CLIPBOARD and text the invite to your friend. It's that easy! 

      Once they receive your email or text invitation, they can complete the registration to become a BAMer. You can see all your community members in your profile under the MORE>PROFILE tab.

    • 5. Can I report a business if I experience issues or problems with a deal?

      We take pride in having quality businesses on BAMit. While we don’t anticipate any problems, yes, during the redemption process you will have the option to tap the ANY ISSUES REDEEMING YOUR DEAL link and chose from a variety of concerns. Tap OTHER if you don't see your issue.

    • 6. How do I earn income with BAMit?

      Builders earn income by adding businesses to the BAMit network and earn 1% of every BAMit deal redeemed at that business, for as long as that business is on the BAMit network. After a brief tutorial and questionnaire, Builder certification is achieved.
      Builders can also earn income by signing up Associate  Builders, who then add businesses to the BAMit network. They will receive ½% of any redeemed BAMit deals at the new Associate Builder business.

    • 7. Is BAMit an MLM?

      No, BAMit is not an MLM. We do not generate a "downline" of active users that is the basis for your earnings, but we do have a generous referral program to earn additional income as a Builder. Builders do not make any money directly off BAMers or their purchases. Builders only earn 1% income on redeemed deals of businesses in their own active communities which they have personally added, and they earn ½% of redeemed deals from businesses added by Associate Builders in their active communities. But that is where the referral system ends.

    • 8. What is the difference between BAMbucks and MONEY EARNED?

      BAMbucks are a part of the loyalty rewards program that is used to reward BAMers for various actions while using the app. BAMbucks are not a currency and cannot be used to redeem deals or be used for general purchasing currency outside the BAMbucks Rewards Center. Money Earned is the US Dollars generated for qualified transactions that Builders are paid when a deal is redeemed at a business within their community.

    • 9. When do I get paid for my MONEY EARNED?

      Once you have reached $20 or more in verified earnings, a check will be automatically generated and sent to you at the address you have given in your profile. Be sure to enter in your legal name and physical mailing address correctly so we can get a check out to you. Checks are sent at the end of each month. Verification of a deal can take up to 10 business days, and once all the redeemed deals are verified within a time period, you will receive your check.

    • 10. What are BAMs?

      BAMs are notifications BAMers will receive. These nuggets of wisdom will help you save money and locate great deals along the way.

    • 11. How do I turn BAMs off?

      We can't imagine why anyone would want to turn off their BAMs, but if you do:
      iOS device: go to the settings and tap NOTIFICATIONS then scroll to the BAMit app and turn the ALLOW NOTIFICATIONS toggle on/off.
      Android device: Tap notifications in your SETTINGS, and go to the Apps button. Tap the BAMit app and tap the toggle on/off for notifications.

    • 12. How can I update the name on my profile?

      Within the BAMit app, go to the MORE tab section and tap the MY PROFILE button>MAKE CHANGES, and then edit your name. For legal purposes, you must use your legal name in the BAMit profile, so avoid nicknames and special handles. While we agree you are probably Super Mom, or Awesome Dude, we can't send you a check with that name when you earn money for deals redeemed in your active business community. Your display name in the help chats will display your legal name. All profile changes can be made in this section.

    • 13. How do I update the email address I use to log into my account?

      Within the BAMit app, go to the MORE section, tap the MY PROFILE button>MAKE CHANGES. Edit/replace your email address and then tap save changes.

    • 14. How can I update my user name in my profile?

      Your user name is your email address. If you need to update your email address, you can do this in the profile section of the app under the MORE tab. Be sure to save your changes after each entry.

    • 15. How do I update the password for my account?

      Within the BAMit app, go to the MORE section tap MY PROFILE button>MAKE CHANGES. Backspace over your current password and enter your new one. Tap SAVE CHANGES. We highly recommend changing your password frequently.

    • 16. How can I see all the deals redeemed in my community?

      You can see all the deals and discounts that have been redeemed by going to the MY MONEY section. You can review all your redeemed deals, money earned, and your BAMbucks here. Click on MY BUSINESSES in this section to see earnings based on businesses.

    • 17. How do I sign up for the BAMit email subscriber list?

      The email address you registered with will automatically be subscribed to the BAMit email list. If you wish to no longer receive BAMit emails, you may unsubscribe at any time. But before you unsubscribe, be sure to check out a few of the newsletters sent out because there is a wealth of information that will be very beneficial. We don't send out boring material that isn’t valuable, and we don't send them out very often.

    • 18. Can I have multiple BAMit accounts?

      Yes, BAMers can have as many accounts as they like, however we suggest sticking with one account because you cannot transfer BAMbucks from one account to another.

    • 19. How do I get notified of local BAMit deals?

      You can receive notifications from BAMit by going to the settings of your device and turning notifications on/off. Without turning notifications on for BAMit, you will not receive any local BAM alerts that we send out. That would be a bummer as you may miss out on some great deals!

    • 20. How do I enable location services on my mobile device?

      iOS device: Go to the settings, tap on MAPS in settings, then tap LOCATION. Make sure to select WHILE USING or ALWAYS.

      Our hearts will be broken into a million pieces, but if you wish to deactivate your account you may contact our customer support team, they will assist you. Miss you already.

    • 24. Why isn’t the BAMit business I added appearing when I search for it?

      We get it can be really frustrating not to see the fruits of your labor when growing your list of active businesses. It may be that the business is not on the BAMit network because they have not completed the verification and registration process. If you signed up a business, make sure they have completed these vital steps. If you know they completed their registration, but you still don't see them in the community, please contact our customer support team.

    • 25. How can I add a business to BAMit?

      Anyone on the BAMit network can add a new business after they go through a brief tutorial to become a Builder (Builders must be of legal working age in their state or country to earn income). Tap on the INVITE tab at the bottom of your screen in the app.
      Tap the ADD A BUSINESS button (this will not show up until you have completed the brief tutorial), input the requested business information and tap ADD BUSINESS. The business will then receive a verification email. They must complete their registration to join the BAMit network including adding a password, Business PIN (to be used when redeeming deals), their first deal, and a payment method. Once they verify their business, it will be added to your active businesses and you will receive 1% from every deal redeemed at that location.

    • 4. How does BAMit get paid?

      When a business is requested to verify their account, they will provide a credit card during registration to become active on the BAMit network. This information goes directly to our processing service called Stripe. BAMit does not receive any credit card information, nor can BAMit ever access this information. Each week, the credit card will be charged with a low 4.9% fee for each BAMit transaction redeemed. Businesses will receive a statement each Sunday night, and will be charged on Wednesday. Remember, BAMit doesn’t collect any money if we don’t bring in business!

    • 5. How secure is my credit card information?

      Stripe is one of the most respected and secure processing companies in the world. If you trust your credit card to make charges at businesses like Amazon, Target, Lyft, Kickstarter, Blue Apron, Girl Scouts of America, and over 100,000 other businesses, then you can trust your credit card with BAMit, because we use the same processing company.

    • 6. What are the responsibilities of a BAMit business?

  • Deals on BAMit
    • 1. What is a deal on BAMit?

      A deal is a promotion/discount offered by a business on the BAMit network. These promotions save our BAMers lots of cash and earn rewards through our BAMbucks loyalty program. While we do refer to them as BAMit deals, please realize that these deals are directly added by a business and are controlled by the business. BAMit does not add these deals, we simply provide the platform for businesses to offer their own deals.

    • 2. How do I redeem a deal on BAMit?

      All deals are redeemed at the business. Select a deal you wish to redeem, tap the REDEEM THIS DEAL button, and present your BAMit deal on your phone to the cashier. After the discount is applied, enter the new total amount being paid into the number pad, and present your device to the cashier. The cashier will enter their 4-digit business PIN, press next, and BAM! You just redeemed a deal and earned BAMbucks.

    • 3. What are some tips for redeeming a deal on BAMit?

      DO: Make sure the total amount is correct before presenting your device to the business. Your total affects your BAMbucks disbursement amounts. The business should proceed to enter their merchant code and tap NEXT to finalize the transaction. If you enter the wrong amount and it doesn’t match with the totals verified, you might not get your BAMbucks, so be sure to enter the correct amount being paid for the total transaction. 

      DON'T: If a business attempts to give you the deal “under the table” please select the ANY ISSUES REDEEMING YOUR DEAL button, and select the appropriate issue and give a brief description. We are unable to disburse your BAMbucks if the business does not process your transaction by entering their 4-digit PIN. We would hate for you to miss out on building your rewards because we have some pretty awesome stuff in our BAMbucks Reward Center.

    • 4. How are deal search results determined?

      BAMit search results are determined by your current location. Any deals within a category will appear on the map with a drop-pin within proximity of your location. If you expand the view of the map, you can see more drop-pins pop up.

    • 5. If I split the check to pay for a deal, will the BAMbucks be split?

      BAMers can split the purchase price with the business for any deal purchase. However, only one BAMer can redeem the deal and earn BAMbucks. If your meal partner isn't a BAMit member, ask them to join – it's a perfect opportunity to see if they want to save money as well, and next time you dine together, they can get the BAMbucks!

    • 6. How do I find additional information about a deal or business?

      For information about a deal or business, tap the drop-pin on the map to pull up additional information. Missing information about the business? Let us know what you want to see, and we'll look at adding it to the business profile.

    • 7. Can I use my BAMbucks to redeem a deal on BAMit?

      BAMbucks are not a currency and cannot be used to redeem deals or be used for purchasing power outside our Rewards Center. And we can promise that we have some pretty awesome stuff in there!

    • 8. How many deals can I redeem per day?

      As many as your bank account will allow! You may redeem as many deals as you like per day – there is no cap on redeeming deals. Remember, the more deals you redeem, the more BAMbucks you earn.

    • 9. How often can a business post a deal?

      As often as they like to fit their daily business objectives. The more deals posted, the more options BAMers have!

    • 10. Can I redeem a deal more than once?

      A deal can be redeemed as many times or as long as it is on the BAMit network. Parameters of redeeming a deal are set by the business.

    • 11. When do I stop earning ½ % of Businesses added by an Associate Builder I invited to my BAMit community?

      You don't stop earning a percentage of deals redeemed at a business added from an Associate Builder in your community. As long as that business remains on the BAMit network, and is offering deals, you will earn a percentage of redeemed deals.

    • 12. I had a bad experience redeeming a deal.

      First off, that’s a bummer, and we are so sorry you had this experience. We take pride in having quality businesses on the BAMit network and hate to see anyone leave with a bad taste in their mouth. If you had a bad experience redeeming a deal please tap the ISSUES REDEEMING THIS DEAL BUTTON. We will address the issue immediately.

    • 13. I don’t want to redeem a deal because the business is charging extra fees.

      We hate to see businesses not following the rules of the platform for deals. If you notice a business is trying to charge extra fees when redeeming your deal or promotion, please report it immediately by tapping the ISSUE REDEEMING THIS DEAL tab before redeeming your deal.

    • 14. What if a business on BAMit won’t accept my deal on the app?

      We never anticipate this happening as businesses use the BAMit platform to keep customers coming back again, and again. However, if you found a deal on the BAMit network for a specific business, and they do not allow you to redeem your deal, on the REDEEM A DEAL page, simply tap the ISSUES REDEEMING THIS DEAL button and select from the options to let us know you had a problem. We will do our best to resolve it immediately.

    • 15. What is your refund policy?

      If you would like a refund, please contact the business directly for more information on their refund policies. Remember, the deals you redeem are controlled by the business, not BAMit.
