The minimum cash back redemption amount is $25. Cash back will be credited to the primary cardholder’s account within 5 days of the date the redemption request is made. Any cash back amount that is not redeemed by the primary cardholder by the last day of the period covered by your December statement will automatically be redeemed, resulting in your cash back balance being reset to zero, and applied as a credit on your next statement, or, in limited circumstances, at such other time as may be permitted by CIBC. CIBC is not required to credit your account with cash back earned during a monthly statement period if your credit card account is not open and in good standing at any time during a monthly statement period.
