These Rules govern your participation in the Ralphs® rewards plus Program (also referred to as the “Program”). Your participation in this Program enables you to earn points that may be redeemed for various rewards.
“Cardholder” means an individual who has requested and/or received an enrolled debit or credit card (also referred to as a “Card”). By using or accepting a Card, you (as a Cardholder) agree to these Rules and any changes, additions, or deletions to them. Your Financial Institution issues and administers all Cards. The Ralphs® rewards plus toll-free number is 1-888-853-9523 (also referred to as the “Ralphs® rewards plus Service Center”).
RewardsNOW, Inc. manages and administers the Program through FIS Corporation. RewardsNOW, FIS, and your Financial Institution are not affiliates. These Rules and Card transactions are also subject to other agreements you may have with your Financial Institution (for example, Cardholder agreements).
- The Ralphs® rewards plus Program is offered at the sole discretion of FIS and your Financial Institution. They reserve the right to change these rules at any time, for any reason, and without notice, and this includes the right to suspend or end the program, cancel outstanding points, or change redemption of outstanding rewards. Neither FIS nor your Financial Institution assume any liability whatsoever for these changes.
- Cards and related accounts may be subject to fees and charges in accordance with the applicable Cardholder agreements and fee schedules.
- In the event of Cardholder fraud, abuse of the Program privileges, or violation of the Rules (for example, any attempt to sell, exchange, or transfer points or any instrument exchangeable for points), FIS and/or your Financial Institution, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to cancel your participation in the Program.
- You are responsible for any personal tax liability related to participation in the Program or as a result of points earned or redeemed.
- The Program is void where prohibited by law.
- Neither FIS nor your Financial Institution is responsible for managing or administering the Program or providing services under the Program. Neither FIS nor your Financial Institution will be responsible for errors or omissions in any Program document. Neither FIS nor your Financial Institution will have any liability to you or any other Cardholder arising from, or related to, the services or rewards.
- You (and any other beneficiary of the program) agree that neither FIS nor your Financial Institution nor RewardsNOW will be liable for, and you release, discharge, and hold harmless FIS, your Financial Institution, and RewardsNOW or anyone who acted on behalf of FIS, the Financial Institution, or RewardsNOW, from any and all claims of any sort, type, kind, or nature that you may have against FIS, your Financial Institution, or RewardsNOW, arising out of or in any way relating to your participation in the program or its rewards – including (but not limited to) claims for or due to personal injury, property damage, accident, sickness, delay, cancellation, postponement, inconvenience, penalty, refund, or other irregularities that may occur or that may be caused by any provider of services or rewards or any person not under the direct supervision and control of FIS or your Financial Institution.
- FIS and/or your Financial Institution reserve the right to interpret Program Rules and policies and will be the final authority on point credits and reward qualifications.
- Cardholders will earn one point for every one U.S. dollar ($1) in eligible net purchases made on their enrolled credit card rounded to the nearest whole dollar. Cardholders will earn one point for every two U.S. dollars ($2) in eligible net purchases made on their enrolled debit card (non-PIN or signature-based only) rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
- “Net purchases” are defined as the dollar value of goods and services purchased with a Card beginning with the first day of the billing cycle that includes Cardholder’s Enrollment Date, minus any credits, returns, or other adjustments as reflected on monthly billing statements.
- Transactions excluded from point calculation include the following: (a) cash advances, ATM withdrawals, convenience checks, balance transfers, and any point of sale PIN (Personal Identification Number) transactions, except as otherwise permitted in special promotional offers; (b) any fees and card-related charges posted to a Rewards Card account, including late fees, over-limit fees, annual fees, and finance charges as outlined in the applicable Cardholder agreement; or (c) tax payments or any unauthorized charges or transactions.
- Negative points will post on a statement if returns or credits exceed purchases. Points may not be purchased.
- Points may be earned only if the applicable account is in good standing. A Card account is not in good standing if closed or suspended, if any payment has not been paid by its due date, or if the credit limit has been exceeded. If the account is closed by you, FIS, or your Financial Institution for any reason, all points that were accumulated but unused will be forfeited immediately.
- Point accrual will begin upon the first day of the calendar month that includes the Cardholder’s Enrollment Date. No other retroactive points will be awarded.
- The number of points a Cardholder can earn in a calendar year is unlimited.
- Points earned will be credited on a monthly basis. You will be sent a monthly e-statement notification by email. The email will also contain a link to the web site where you can view your current point balance. Email addresses can be updated by visiting the web site. In addition, a quarterly paper statement will be mailed.
- Points will expire if they are not redeemed within a three-year period.
