We want you to read more and spend less. The ThriftBooks ReadingRewards Program provides registered members of thriftbooks.com with special reward, discount and promotional offers. This program is for the benefit of individual readers for their own reading pleasure and it is not intended to benefit the large order buyer or reseller.
By accepting this agreement, you acknowledge and affirmatively consent to the following:
You may not accept this agreement if you are not 18 years old. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you may only participate in the Program if you are supervised by a parent or legal guardian who accepts this agreement. You may not participate in the Program if you are under the age of 13. If you do not agree with all of the provisions of this Agreement, do not access or participate in the Program.
Only individual customers who are age 13 or older and have registered for an account at thriftbooks.com or on the ThriftBooks mobile application are eligible to participate in the Program and receive its benefits. Customers who make purchases under a "Guest" account without creating a new registered account at the time of purchase are not eligible for Program benefits on such purchases. The Program is intended for individual personal use only and commercial use is prohibited. Companies, associations, and other groups are not eligible for the Program. Any use of the Program by ineligible parties or use of a single registered account for the purpose of accumulating Program benefits for combined use will be considered a fraudulent act.
If at any point after registering for the Program you wish to unenroll from Program benefits, you may do so by clicking "Opt Out" on the ReadingRewards page of your member account. By unenrolling, by deleting your member account, or by withdrawing your consent for us to use any personal information required to administer your account, you will forfeit any unredeemed benefits you have earned, including earned and outstanding rewards, Program Points, and Free Book Credits (as defined below). Subject to applicable law, we may retain any personal information you provided us during the time you were registered as a Program member.
The benefits available to you through the Program are based on the number of points that you earn ("Program Points").
As a Program Participant, you may earn Program Points by making qualifying purchases at thriftbooks.com, or through the ThriftBooks mobile app. You will earn Program Points per dollar spent on qualifying purchases according to the terms of your Benefit Level (as defined below) provided in Section 5. Program Points will be credited to your account at the time a qualifying purchase ships. You must contact us via the e-mail below within one-hundred and twenty (120) days after the date the purchase or other program activity took place to address any errors in crediting of points. We are not responsible for late notifications about purchases or other program activities not being credited to a Program account. Our good faith determination of the amount of Program Points earned under any purchase will be final and binding.
Purchases must be made at thriftbooks.com or through the ThriftBooks mobile app under a registered account at the time of purchase in order to qualify for Program Points. Purchases that are made under a guest account without creating a registered account during the purchase process do not qualify for Program Points. Qualifying purchases do not include bulk and wholesale purchases, purchases made with benefits received under the Program, sales tax, shipping costs, and any other purchases we designate as non-qualifying, as provided below. Qualifying purchases of discounted or sale items will earn Program Points according to the paid price of the purchased item, not the original list price. We reserve the right to designate any purchase as a non-qualifying purchase by noting its status as a non-qualifying purchase in the online promotion or benefit details at thriftbooks.com or in the ThriftBooks mobile app.
If we issue you a refund for a purchase which was previously a qualifying purchase, we reserve the right to remove, or not credit you, any Program Points related to the returned purchase. The decision to remove or withhold Program Points will be made in our sole discretion. Refunds are governed by our return and exchange policy, which is available at https://www.thriftbooks.com/help/#topic-30.
For every 500 Program Points you earn, you will receive a credit for a free book (a "Free Book Credit"). A Free Book Credit may be used to purchase any book available on thriftbooks.com or the ThriftBooks mobile app that has a value of $5.00 or less. Free Book Credits may not be used toward the purchase of a book with greater than a $5.00 value. We reserve the right to change the value of our books at any time, without notice, regardless of whether a book was previously Free Book Credit-eligible. You will not earn Program Points for books purchased using Free Book Credits.
Free Book Credits will be added to your account once you have earned the required number of Program Points and will expire 90 days from the date of issuance. Any Free Book Credits that you have available at the time you add a Free Book Credit-eligible book to your cart will be automatically applied at check out. You will be responsible for tax and shipping charges on any book purchased using Free Book Credits. The listed value of the free book will be applied toward calculating purchase minimums for any applicable free or discounted shipping offers.
The value of a book purchased using a Free Book Credit will not be applied as a benefit to earn Program Points and may not be used in conjunction with any special reward, discount, or promotional offers unless explicitly noted in the special reward, discount, or promotional offer details. Your purchase of a book using a Free Book Credit will not qualify as a purchasing event for any special reward, discount, or promotional offer unless explicitly noted in the special reward, discount, or promotional offer details.
We may provide additional benefits or offers to all or select Program Participants by notifying Program Participants via email, push notification for mobile app users, or by posting the details of such benefits or promotions online at thriftbooks.com or in the ThriftBooks mobile app. We reserve the right to base such benefits or offers on Reward Points earned, Benefit Level reached, personal behaviour and preferences, or any other criteria in our sole discretion.
The Program is a modification of and replacement for the ThriftBooks Book Bonus Program ("BBP"). As of the effective date of this Agreement, you will no longer be able to earn coupons through accruing cumulative dollar spend under the BBP. On the Effective Date, previously accrued dollar spend that has not been converted into a coupon will convert to Program Points according to the benefit level the Program Participant qualifies for under section 6 below. Previously earned and unredeemed BBP coupons (including, but not limited to $5 off coupons, Tell-A-Friend coupons, and birthday coupons) may be redeemed for ThriftBooks purchases prior to the expiration date of the coupon, but no later than one year after the Effective Date.
Program Participants will qualify for one of the following levels of benefits based on the amount of qualifying purchases made. Program Participants who previously participated in the BBP will qualify for a benefit level based on their historic ThriftBooks purchases. Your benefit level will be automatically updated on your account within 30 days of any event that gives rise to a change in benefit level. We reserve the right to modify the benefits offered at each level at any time, without notice to you.
All active Program Participants will qualify for Reader level. Program Participants at the Reader level will earn Program Points at a rate of one point per $0.125 spent on qualifying purchases. A Program Participant must make at least $10 in qualifying purchases during the preceding 12 months to retain all points earned at the Reader level.
A Program Participant who has made at least $100 in qualifying purchases during the preceding 12 months will qualify for Literati level. Program Participants at the Literati level will earn Program Points at a rate of one point per $0.10 spent on qualifying purchases. In addition, Program Participants at the Literati level may receive early access to certain promotions.
Cumulative qualifying purchases will be calculated on a rolling basis from each date of purchase to determine the Program Participant's right to benefits under this section. We may offer additional promotions or bonus Program Points for specific types of purchases as we determine in our sole discretion.
We reserve the right to modify this Agreement or its policies relating to the Program at any time, with or without notice, effective upon posting of an updated version of this Agreement at www.thriftbooks.com. We reserve the right to terminate the Program at any time, for any reason, even though termination may adversely affect your ability to receive and/or use Program benefits. You will have the lesser of the then-remaining term of any Program benefit or 30 days from the date Program termination is announced to use any unexpired Program benefit. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Agreement, and your continued participation in the Program after any changes have been made will constitute your consent to such changes.
There are no membership fees associated with the Program or Program Points. Program Points accumulated under the program are promotional and have no cash value. Program Points have no purpose or use except in exchange for benefits or privileges offered by us under the Program.
Your Program Points, Free Book Credits, any other benefits you receive under the Program, and your account under the Program are personal to you and may not be sold, transferred or assigned to, or shared with, family, friends or others, or used by you for any commercial purpose. You may have only one Program account that is personal to you.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account and/or your participation in the Program without notice to you if we determine in our sole discretion that you have violated this Agreement or that the use of your account is unauthorized, deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful. We may, in our sole discretion, suspend, cancel or combine accounts that appear to be duplicative. By suspending or deleting your account with ReadingRewards or ThriftBooks, you will forfeit any unredeemed benefits you have earned, including earned and outstanding rewards, Program Points, and Free Book Credits.
If we terminate your account in accordance with this section, we will not be obligated to provide you with Program benefits after the termination date. If you re-registered an account or create a separate account, you may not transfer your old Program participation or benefits to your new registered account. If we terminate your account or participation in the Program for any reason, all accumulated Program Points in your account are void.
