Each Member can earn a maximum of 500,000 Points.

    Conditions of Use. Sponsor will attempt to credit Members' accounts with Points on a timely basis.

As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable, or assignable for any reason. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any accumulated Points, other than by Sponsor, is strictly prohibited. Any Points that Sponsor deems in its sole discretion to have been transferred, sold, bartered, or assigned in violation of these Terms may be confiscated and/or canceled.

    Participation in the Rewards Plus Program is subject to these Terms, as well as policies and procedures that Sponsor may adopt or modify from time to time. Any failure to abide by these Terms or any policies or procedures implemented by Sponsor, any conduct detrimental to Sponsor, or any misrepresentation or fraudulent activities in connection with this Rewards Plus Program, or failure to act in a manner consistent with federal, state, provincial, or local laws, regulations, institutional policies, or ordinances, may result, in addition to any rights or remedies available to Sponsor in law or equity, in the termination of membership in the Rewards Plus Program, as well as forfeiture of any Points accrued to date, and any other benefits earned in connection therewith, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.

Responsibility for providing this warranty is solely the responsibility of the Member. Each redeeming Member is solely responsible for ensuring that his/her email and shipping address is correct in the Rewards Plus Program records prior to redemption. Sponsor’s obligation regarding delivery of a Reward is satisfied upon sending the selected Reward to the email or shipping address for the Member contained in the Rewards Plus Program records as of the date of redemption.
