I'm not seeing it today either. Was there last week when I cashed out for $15 PayPal but not today. Hope it's only temporary and not gone for good.

UGH! Just got this reply-Hello Panelist,

Thank you for your message! Unfortunately, at this time, the PayPal redemption option has been temporarily removed from the catalog. There are currently technical issues with our PayPal administration. At this time, we do not have an estimated timeline for reinstatement. If you are looking to redeem rewards, please take a look at the catalog and the other variety of options provided.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

I was able moments ago to redeem for $3 via PayPal on the Pinecone site. It was there as usual when I searched the rewards catalog for "cash" as I always do. So it's worth checking again now for anyone who was waiting for PayPal to be restored before redeeming any points.

Cash option may be available but if they haven't fix it yet you will probably get a check in the mail.
I cashed out June 11 and i haven't received a notification by Paypal, it leads me to believe i'm getting a check.



Please note, there are currently technical issues with our PayPal administration so we have temporarily removed that from our catalog.
As soon as we are able to, we will reinstate.
You can still receive a check by selecting our ''Cash Option''.

I had a similar experience. I cashed out June 10 and got the Online Rewards Order Confirmation email instantly after having completed the order, but it hasn't gone into my Paypal account yet.

I usually go between Paypal and Amazon. I had been doing Paypal for quite awhile though and didn't realized Amazon isn't being offered anymore either. I may get a digital gift card and use it to purchase an Amazon one if possible.

Regarding PayPal Redemption Options

Hi,
Our records show that you have received a redemption of Rewards Points through PayPal in the last 90 days.
We wanted to let you know that unfortunately PayPal redemptions are currently unavailable.
For alternative redemption options, please visit the Rewards Site to check out our gift card and physical merchandise offerings
that can be found under the "SHOP" tab. Additionally, PayPal will be added back to the Rewards Site as soon as the issues have been resolved.

We greatly appreciate your patience during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to Contact Us.
