'Pending' earnings refer to purchases made through Giving Assistant that have not yet 'locked' on the retailer's end. Retailers use the 'pending' period to ensure there are no returns or fraudulent behavior associated with the order. 

Pending earnings 'lock' anywhere from 15-90 days depending on the retailer terms. To see when a purchase will lock with the retailer, head on over to your Cash Back History on your account page.
