SHOPPING:  iGive is essentially a store rebate program where iGive members have the opportunity to donate their rebate to their chosen cause. iGive receives compensation beyond the posted donation amounts, and many stores pay to advertise on our site. We manage with a streamlined overhead, and use of the best in automated systems to provide our members and causes with this free service. When iGive members shop via our special links, an "iGive Cookie" is assigned to your browser. This tells the store, "Here is an iGive Member" using a meaningless member ID number. The store reports back with this number and the purchase amounts so we can calculate the donation to your cause. iGive.com never has access to any payment information.

 

Ways to Use iGive:

If you are more visual - you may be interested in viewing our 5 minute Shopping Video

By using an iGive link to the store's website, you shop as you normally would. There are no extra steps, no iGive notifications when making payments.  The donations happen behind the scenes, and often the store's support teams are unaware of the iGive Program.    

NOTE: Use only iGive.com Deals & Coupons. The use of a non-iGive coupon will void the donation. We have direct feeds from the stores providing you with all the latest offers and savings.  All other known exceptions are posted on the stores' detail page.
