II. EARNING POINTS
Members can earn EMPIRE® Rewards points on the purchase of qualifying products only Online. For all Online purchases, you must be a registered user of the Website and logged in to your Online account to get credit for Online purchases. In store purchases do not accumulate EMPIRE® Reward points.
Members earn one (1) point for every one dollar ($1) spent when they purchase qualifying products Online if the Member is logged into the Website and has linked his or her Account number with his or her Online account. Points are rounded up. For example, if you spend $19.99, you will receive 20 points. Calculation is as follows: $19.99 x 1 point per dollar = 19.99 points, which is rounded up to 20 points.
In addition to earning points on their qualifying product purchases made Online, all Members receive 25 bonus points on their birthday each year. Members with a valid email and their birthday entered in their Account profile will automatically receive the bonus points to their account; No coupon code is required. Members can redeem once they have accumulated 50 total points.
Addition of Points to Accounts.
Points will be added to your Account immediately at the time of online purchase of qualifying products. For all online purchases, the amount of points in your Account, including points earned on your recent purchase, will be reflected on your personal profile after a transaction, unless there is a system unavailability or other technical difficulty that limits the ability to reflect points on your profile. The timing for issuing points is subject to change.
Members earn EMPIRE® Rewards points only on the purchase price of qualifying products Online if they are logged onto the Website and have linked their Account number with their Online account. Calculation of EMPIRE® Rewards points excludes payment by the Member for in-store purchases, shipping charges and all taxes, including without limitation, federal, state, and local taxes or use taxes. EMPIRE® Rewards points will not be earned on any discounts or other credits offered in connection with a product. For example, if a product that is normally $100 is on sale for $75, a Member will only earn points on the purchase price of $75. Redemption of merchandise vouchers, and any type of price adjustments, including merchandise returns, are not eligible for points. All purchases made: (i) by a Member prior to such member joining the Program, (ii) In-store, or (iii) Online without a Member being logged onto the Website with the Member's Account number linked to the Member's Online account, are not eligible for Program credit.
Points earned for a purchase that is then the subject of a return, refund, returned check due to non-sufficient funds, or other credit will be deducted from the Member's account in an amount equal to the points earned for the original transaction, including bonus points.
Bonus Point Promotions.
From time to time, EMPIRE® may run certain bonus point promotions. Under bonus point promotions, Members can earn additional or "bonus points" in connection with the purchase of certain products or in connection with shopping days where a Member earns a set amount of bonus points for shopping Online that day. When these products are purchased by a Member, the Member will earn bonus points on each product, as specified in the offer. Bonus point promotions are subject to the terms and conditions of the offer and may be offered at any time in EMPIRE®'S sole discretion. Bonus point offers cannot be combined with any other offer. If a Member purchases a product during a bonus point promotion and the product comes with an additional, free product, bonus points will not be issued on the retail value of the free product. If a Member redeems points towards the purchase of a bonus point product in an amount equal to the full price of the bonus point product, the Member will not earn any bonus points. You may also earn additional points on non-purchase activities in accordance with the terms published by EMPIRE®. You may also earn additional points on certain purchases from eligible third parties in accordance with the terms published by EMPIRE®.
