Pending cash back refers to cash back earned that is subject to a holding period based on the merchant's return policy and when the merchant funds the offer. If you return your purchase, for example, you won’t receive the cash back. Once the holding period ends, your cash back will be deposited into your RBC chequing or savings account during the next monthly cash back cycle.
