GROUPON REWARDS TERMS
As a Program member, when you shop with any of your favorite participating Groupon merchants and spend predetermined amounts at their businesses, you may have the opportunity to access exclusive Groupon deals offered by those merchants (any exclusive deal that you qualify to access, a "Rewards Deal").
It works like this: (1) use any valid payment card registered in your Groupon customer account to make eligible purchases from your favorite Groupon merchants participating in the Program during any period of time that may be established by that merchant (collectively, "Qualifying Purchases"); (2) Groupon will attribute all Qualifying Purchases to your Groupon Rewards account to be applied toward spending threshold established for the specific merchant's Rewards Deal (each dollar spent is a "Program credit"); (3) when you have enough qualifying Program credits to meet the merchant's spending threshold for a specific Rewards Deal, the Rewards Deal will be "unlocked" for you to access. You may be offered access to a Rewards Deal on a complimentary basis (e.g. the Rewards Deal will just be free for you to claim) or on a paid basis (the Rewards Deal may be available for you to purchase). The merchant offering the Rewards Deal will specify whether the Rewards Deal will be free or available for purchase when unlocked
Accumulating Program credit will only enable you to unlock Rewards Deals. Program credits are not redeemable for cash or any other item of value. Program credits may be forfeited if the merchant has established a period during which the spending threshold must be met, and sufficient Qualifying Purchases are not made to achieve the spending threshold in that time frame. You may view your progress toward unlocking specific Rewards Deals by visiting the "My Rewards" tab in your Groupon customer account. Unlocked Rewards Deals are available for you to access and redeem within the period of time specified in the terms of the specific Rewards Deal ("Offer Period"). Once the Offer Period for an unlocked Rewards Deal has passed, you will no longer be able to access that Rewards Deal. Once a Rewards Deal is claimed or purchased, you will be issued a "Groupon Rewards Voucher" which can be used in the same manner as a traditional Groupon voucher and as specified on the face of the Groupon Rewards Voucher itself. For complete terms pertaining to traditional Groupon vouchers, please read our Terms of Sale
Purchases made with Groupon Bucks, amounts added to purchases for sales tax, state fees, shipping charges, delivery charges, service charges, restocking fees, samples, other excluded charges, and certain items that are excluded in a particular merchant's Reward Deal terms, will be excluded and not credited as a Qualifying Purchase, or any portion of a Qualifying Purchase.
You are responsible for ensuring that Program credits are properly added to your Groupon customer account. Program credits may not appear in your account for up to seven (7) days while a Qualifying Purchase is being validated. Any claim that Program credits were not accurately added to your Groupon customer account must be received by Groupon within fourteen (14) days of the date of the claimed Program credit accrual or will be waived. Groupon shall have no liability for any printing, production, typographical, mechanical, or other errors in Program summaries made available by Groupon or for any delay or failure to add accrued Program credits to your Groupon customer account. The final calculation of all Program credit is in Groupon's absolute and sole discretion, and no audit rights are provided to you under the Program. Groupon reserves the right to delay the processing or redemption of Program credit without notice in order to validate Qualifying Purchases and to ensure compliance with this Agreement.
To become a Program member, you must: (a) be a U.S. resident at least 18 years of age as of the date of your enrollment in the Program, (b) have the capacity to enter into a legally binding contract, and (c) have, and maintain in good standing, a Groupon customer account registered with at least one valid credit card.
Participation in the Program is subject to this Agreement, as well as any policies and procedures that Groupon may have, adopt or modify from time to time. Any failure to abide by this Agreement or any policies or procedures implemented by Groupon, any conduct detrimental to Groupon, any misrepresentation or fraudulent activities in connection with this Program, or any failure to act in a manner consistent with federal, state, provincial, or local laws, regulations, or ordinances, may result, in addition to any rights or remedies available to Groupon in law or equity, in the termination of your membership in the Program, as well as forfeiture of any Program credit accrued to date, and any other benefits earned in connection therewith, in Groupon's sole discretion.
Your Program membership, and any Rewards Deal you are offered pursuant to your Program membership is offered exclusively to you and may not be shared, transferred or assigned to any other person or entity
You may cancel your Program membership at any time by visiting the "My Rewards" tab in your Groupon customer account and selecting the "Opt-out" option. Cancellation of your Program membership will not affect the validity of, or your ability to redeem, any Groupon Rewards Voucher you previously purchased through the Program. Cancellation of your Program membership does not entitle you to any form of compensation of any kind, whether for accumulated Program credits that did not unlock a Rewards Deal or for any previously issued Groupon Rewards vouchers.
Groupon may, in its sole discretion, cancel your Program membership and terminate this Agreement if you breach any provision of any component of this Agreement. If Groupon terminates this Agreement due to your breach, Groupon will have no further liability or responsibility to you. If Groupon terminates this Agreement because the Program has been discontinued, our cancellation will not affect the validity of, or your ability to redeem, any issued Groupon Rewards Voucher. Cancellation of your Program membership does not entitle you to any form of compensation of any kind, whether for accumulated Program credits that did not unlock a Rewards Deal or for any previously issued Groupon Rewards vouchers.
