If you’re planning to hit in-store sales on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, we’ve found a reward for the time and money you’ll spend.

Online marketplace Jet.com is offering site credit to those who shop at physical retailers between 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving and 11:59 p.m. on Black Friday.

Prove you spent at least $50 at a physical location of select retailers in that time period and you’ll get a $10 JetCash voucher.

Internet Retailer reports that Jet will give credit for purchases made in-store at:

  • Toys R Us
  • Sports Authority
  • Brookstone
  • hhgregg

To get the credit, snap a photo of your receipt and upload it to Jet’s Facebook page by midnight on Sunday, November 29.

Each shopper can claim up to $30 in vouchers. But you must register for a Jet account before Thanksgiving to participate.

What Is Jet?

Jet is an online shopping marketplace for just about everything you can buy. It’s made waves in the e-commerce world for its unique “real-time pricing algorithm”.

Items you buy through Jet are priced as you shop, based on their location in distribution centers.

Forbes breaks it down like this: Add two items to your cart from the same distribution center that can be shipped in a single box (“smart items”), and you’ll pay one low price.

Add a third item from a different distribution center and you’ll pay more.

As you add items to your cart, other items that can be bundled will also be flagged as “smart items,” so you know you’ll be getting the best price.
