Click the image corresponding to the item you wish to order and follow the instructions to complete the redemption process. As part of the redemption process, you will receive a confirmation email. Emails will be sent to the email address assigned to the participant’s account. Reward recipients should allow up to 4 – 6 weeks from the date of redemption for delivery of merchandise. All income taxes are the sole responsibility of each award recipient. Sponsor reserves the right to limit quantities and modify the list of merchandise and other items available for point redemption, as well as their corresponding point values, at any time for any reason during the Program Period. In the event a participant redeems points for rewards with a total approximate retail value of $600 or more in a calendar year, the participant will be contacted by Sponsor’s agency, Don Jagoda Associates, Inc., via email with instructions to securely provide their social security number and other information required to issue participant an IRS 1099 form; participant must comply with this process in order to receive such rewards. All point redemptions for products are final. Refunds, exchanges and other issues are governed by the vendors terms and conditions applicable to the purchase and are not the responsibility of Sponsor. Participants must redeem points by 11:59:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2023, unless extended or otherwise modified by Sponsor. Any points remaining in a participants’ account at the end of the Program Period will be forfeited without compensation. Points have no cash value and are only redeemable for rewards offered in the Rewards Program. Each participant is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of his/her account and is encouraged to check his/her account regularly. If a participant believes that points were not properly accrued to his/her account, the participant must notify Sponsor within 15 days of the day the code was entered, by calling 270-685-8777 or emailing email@example.com.
- GENERAL RULES: Participants may not combine or transfer points between accounts. Participants may not combine codes obtained by others for deposit into a single participant’s account, nor transfer, sell, auction or otherwise dispose of codes in any matter in violation or attempted subversion of these Terms and Conditions or the spirit of the Rewards Program. Any attempt to combine or transfer codes or points will result in the disqualification from the Rewards Program and forfeiture of all points in any participant’s account. Sponsor reserves the right to take any other or additional action it deems appropriate in its sole discretion in the event that Sponsor believes (in its sole discretion) that a participant has violated this provision. Once a participant inputs a code, the validation of the code and the potential points earned will be subject to verification by a judging organization whose decisions on its outcome are final and binding. Points will not be awarded until after the verification process is complete. Codes are void if a) not obtained in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and through legitimate channels or b) any part is counterfeit, altered, defective, tampered with or irregular in any way.
