3. Earning Points
There are several ways to earn Points, as set out below.

Points will be calculated with reference to the purchase price of eligible products, less applicable discounts and taxes as shown on each purchase receipt.
- Product Reviews. Points will be awarded at the rate of 20,000 Points for each approved review of a verified purchased product. Limited 1 review per product.
- Sign Up. Points will be awarded at the rate of 0 Points for signing up. Limited 1 per person.
You are required to be logged in your Account prior to payment in order to receive Points. Points will not be granted on previously-completed purchases.
Points, offers, promotions, and other services and programs are offered by us, or other Program Participants, and may be offered to all Program members or any group of the Program members, as decided by us. Any offer or promotion is time limited, and may contain additional terms and conditions, which will apply in addition to these Terms and Conditions. Each offer is only valid once, unless expressly stated otherwise in the terms of the offer. We may limit quantities of products on which a single Program member may earn Points. For example, we may make an offer of additional Points on the purchase of a particular product, and state that a Program member may only earn Points for a single purchase of that product, or for a purchase of any other number we specify. If you earn Points in a manner not permitted by these Terms and Conditions or any offer, we may deem, in our sole discretion, any such Points to be invalid and cancel them, which will result in the removal of such Points from your Account.
4. Redeeming Points
To “redeem” means to use your Points to pay, or partially pay, for eligible purchases by using your Account points at the time of checkout. You can redeem the Points you earn for eligible purchases, or for any other purposes of which we may advise you from time to time.
You must redeem a minimum of 10,000 Points at a time, which are worth $10 in rewards. If you want to redeem more than 10,000 Points at one time, you must redeem them in increments of 10,000 Points, each increment being worth $10 in rewards.
For example, if the amount of your purchase eligible for redemption is $37, you can redeem 30,000 Points, and then pay the remaining $7 with an acceptable payment method. The number of points eligible for redemption is limited to the next closest 10,000 point threshold above the eligible purchase amount. For example, you would not be allowed to redeem 50,000 Points for a purchase of $37. We may change the minimum redemption amount or redemption increments at any time, in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
On occasion, we may offer you redemption promotions for particular products or services, such as an increase in the value of Points or a lower minimum redemption amount. There may be additional applicable terms and conditions that accompany such promotions.
The maximum value of Points that you can redeem in one transaction is $500.00, or such higher amount as may be set by us from time to time.
Points do not expire. However, we reserve the right to close your Account without notice if you do not earn or redeem any Points at least once every 2 years, or for any reason set out in these Terms and Conditions. You can contact us to request the reinstatement of the value of your Points at the time your Account was closed, to be issued in a new Account that belongs to you.
