Q: How long do I wait for points to appear on my account?
A: Depending on the number of eligible reviews published within a month, TripAdvisor will credit the appropriate number of PAYBACK points to the particular PAYBACK account within the subsequent month. For example, if you have registered to participate in the campaign and have written reviews in August, the PAYBACK points will appear in your account no later than September 30.
