Why is my Honey Gold pending?
Honey Gold transactions normally appear as pending in your Account Overview within 2-4 days of your purchase.
Transactions usually remain pending for 45-60 days while the merchant confirms your purchase and verifies that items from your order haven’t been returned or refunded.
If you do return part of your purchase, the amount of Honey Gold you earn will adjust accordingly.
Travel reservations (e.g. purchases made at hotels, car rentals, or other travel sites) earn Honey Gold on a different timeline. The merchant requires you to complete the reservation before Honey Gold is credited or even listed as pending in your account. Even though you have already paid, there's still the possibility that you may cancel or modify your trip.
These pending periods are determined by the merchant. Once we receive confirmation that you’ll earn Honey Gold for the purchase (after the return window has ended or in the case of a travel reservation, when the stay is completed) our system automatically posts Gold to your account.
