All rewards are subject to availability and any voucher for a reward or offer does not constitute a contract, agreement or commitment to provide a particular good or service.
We may require that you provide additional information in order to earn or redeem a reward (for example: your mobile phone number). Your earning or redeeming of such a reward is contingent upon you providing us with the information requested.
Individual rewards or vouchers may be subject to specific terms and conditions which will be disclosed on printed reward vouchers but may not fit into the space available in vouchers sent via text message (SMS). Those terms and conditions still apply even where they are absent from the SMS.
We are not liable if a reward expires prior to you redeeming it.
We will track transactions and allocate points for each transaction your make by credit card or EFTPOS card where you provide the details of that card when completing or updating your member's profile. You must be the person named on any card you add to your profile.
Usually one point per one dollar spent will be allocated to your account, however we reserve the right to change the number of points allocated for each dollar at any time and may change the number of points allocated based on products purchased, date or time of purchase or other criteria as we see fit.
We are reliant on third parties to provide transaction information in a particular format. Transmission or other errors or problems may mean we are unable to process transactions. We do not guarantee to process all transaction or to allocate points for any particular transaction.
We may decide, at any time, to add or remove limits to the transactions that are eligible to earn points. Transactions may be limited by a minimum spend, a maximum spend or other criteria at our discretion.
