Card-linked reimbursement
A card-linked reimbursement (CLR) is money paid to an employee as repayment for a wellness benefit. Employees connect a bank account to link their debit card and Wallit deposits their funds there every month they are elegible for a reimbursement. 

Card-linked offers
A card-linked offer (CLO) is a reward or cash back amount given to a consumer in exchange for a purchase made with a debit card at participating merchants. A CLO is an offer that you as a member of Wallit initiate by registering a debit card with Wallit in connection with cash back offers, and then making a qualifying purchase from a participating merchant. Consumers no longer have to remember to clip a coupon, remember a promo or discount code, or show a gift or loyalty card. They simply use their existing card linked to the program to redeem the offer.

For Businesses, card-linked offers represent a powerful digital marketing tool designed to bridge the gap between online marketing and in-store sales to drive sales, increase customer loyalty, and reduce advertising costs. 

Cash back
In Wallit, cash back refers to a debit card benefit that refunds the cardholders a percentage of the sum spent on qualifying purchases. Cash back rewards are actual cash that are paid automatically from a monthly allowance funded by an employer or from merchant-funded offers.
