3. Participation in the Refuel Rewards™ Program and Expiration of Rewards
When you enroll in the Refuel Rewards Program as a member (“Member”) you are able to collect cents-per-gallon discounts on fuel as well as points that may be used to purchase qualified merchandise Retail Location(the fuel and merchandise discounts are collectively, the “Rewards”) at participating convenience stores and fuel stations (“Retail Locations”). Members may collect Rewards by, among other things, purchasing fuel and other qualified products at Retail Locations. To enroll, you must meet the terms for participation established by us to obtain a Refuel Rewards Member identification number and virtual program card (collectively, the “Member ID”). There is no membership fee to become a Member. The Refuel Rewards Program is only open to natural persons residing in the United States who are 16 years or older.
4. Your Account
Once your Member ID is activated using the Refuel Rewards Site and you have provided us with a valid e-mail address, we will establish an account in your name (“Account”). We may refuse to grant to you, and you may not use, a username (or e-mail address) that is already being used by someone else; that may be construed as impersonating another person; that belongs to another person; that violates the intellectual property or other rights of any person; that is offensive; or that we reject for any other reason in our sole discretion. You agree to provide us with, and keep up-to-date, accurate, truthful and complete account information (including, but not limited to your e-mail address). You may only collect Rewards in one Account. Your Account is non-transferable and may not be sold, combined or otherwise shared with another person, except as provided in this paragraph. If you violate these Terms and Conditions, commit fraud or falsify information in connection with your use of the Refuel Rewards Program or the Refuel Rewards Site, or take any other act which is, in our sole discretion, detrimental to Refuel or the Refuel Rewards Program, we may terminate your Account, and you will forfeit any pending, current, or future Rewards. You may elect to close your Account at any time by notifying Refuel. Upon closure of your Account, any rights to redeem Rewards from that Account are lost.
5. Earning Rewards; Expiration of Rewards
You can earn Rewards in the Refuel Rewards Program by purchasing fuel or qualified products at Retail Locations that participate in the Refuel Rewards Program. Our Refuel Rewards Program entitles you to earn Rewards only from Retail Locations in the United States. Specific offers, terms and conditions and expiration details for how to earn Rewards are described on the Refuel Rewards Site or in material provided in connection with a limited-time promotion or offer. In order to be eligible to earn Rewards, you must identify yourself as a Member by presenting your Member ID when dealing with Retail Locations.
Rewards that you accrue as a result of your transactions with Retail Locations will be posted to your Account, and a summary of activity in your Account will be displayed on the Refuel Rewards Site. Rewards will normally be posted to your Account within 24 hours from the date of your purchase from a Retail Location, but may be posted to your Account at a later time depending on the Retail Location or the applicable offer. We do not assume any liability for the failure of Rewards to post to your Account in a timely manner. Points earned as a result of transactions with Retail Locations never expire as long as the Account is in Active Standing. “Member” must make a purchase in any 365 day period to remain active. On the 366th consecutive date of no transaction, the “Member” account will move to Inactive Standing. Once points have been redeemed for Rewards via the Site, Rewards expire in 30 days.
You are solely responsible for checking your Account regularly to ensure that your Rewards are properly credited. If you believe that proper credit does not appear on your Account, you should contact us via the Refuel Rewards Site and then provide any requested documentation to verify your purchase. We reserve the right to determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, whether Rewards should have been posted to your Account and to adjust your Account accordingly. You acknowledge that any such determination by us will be final and binding. IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ANY SUCH DETERMINATION, OR OTHERWISE DISPUTE THAT REWARDS HAVE BEEN PROPERLY CREDITED TO YOUR ACCOUNT, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO WITHDRAW FROM THE REFUEL REWARDS PROGRAM.
We will credit your Account with only those Rewards you earn by dealing with Retail Locations in good standing with us and may require Retail Location authorization to do so. We are not responsible if a Retail Location delays or fails to make such an authorization or for any other delay in recording Rewards in your Account.
We are not responsible if a Retail Location delays or fails to make adjustments to your Account regarding a disputed Reward or for any other delay in recording Rewards in your Account. We may refuse to record or honor Rewards in your Account, or if already recorded, we may cancel them, if we cannot confirm that they were properly issued or obtained. We may also cancel recorded Rewards if the Retail Location does not pay the amounts owed to us or tells us to cancel the Rewards (for example, because you returned or did not pay for products or services for which the Rewards were issued). Retail Locations will determine the conditions under which they will permit you to earn Rewards and may change those conditions at any time and without notice. Neither we nor any Retail Location is responsible for any offer or Reward which is no longer in effect. Refuel is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any special offer, promotion, or Refuel Rewards Program Rewards code offered by a Retail Location. Refuel is not responsible for changes to, or discontinuance of, any Retail Location, or for any Retail Location withdrawing from the Refuel Rewards Program, or for any effect on accrual of Rewards, or ability to redeem Rewards, caused by such changes, discontinuance, or withdrawal.
If you believe that any Account summary showing the number of Rewards in your Account is in error or have a dispute regarding Rewards, you must notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 60 days of the date the purchase was made or it will be deemed correct. You may be required to submit documentation to support your claim.
Member IDs and all rights relating to them are and will remain the property of Refuel or the applicable Retail Location. You may not offer for sale, sell, exchange, give, charge or otherwise dispose of any Reward. You are responsible for all taxes payable due to your participation in the Refuel Rewards Program.
In the case of any failure by you to follow these Terms and Conditions or any other terms or conditions applicable to programs or offers in which you may elect to participate as part the Refuel Rewards Program, or any other fraud, misrepresentation, or abuse related to the Refuel Rewards Program, including but not limited to your engaging in a pattern of returning or canceling products or services after the corresponding Rewards have been credited, as determined by us in our sole discretion, we and the Retail Locations reserve the right to make any adjustments to your Account at any time and to take appropriate administrative or legal action. In such a case, some or all of your Rewards earned through the Refuel Rewards Program may be forfeited and your Account closed, and we reserve the right to seek reimbursement from you for the cost of any Reward you receive upon redemption of Rewards that are subsequently deducted from your Account. You give Refuel permission to review your Account with Retail Locations in cases where Refuel suspects fraudulent activity.
7. Redemption of Rewards
To redeem Rewards, you must present your Member ID when purchasing fuel at Retail Locations. Your Reward will automatically be applied to the transaction either by reducing the per-gallon price of the fuel by the amount of the Rewards you have earned prior to dispensing fuel or by applying the appropriate Reward amount to the total transaction (where this feature is available) after dispensing fuel once your Reward balance is transmitted to the Retail Location. For fuel purchases, fuel savings are limited to twenty-five (25) gallons of fuel per purchase per vehicle or fraud limits placed by the Retail Location and/or limits placed on your payment card by your financial institution, whichever may be lower. Due to the technical capabilities at the pump, there may be a minimum charge per gallon of fuel purchased ranging regardless of redeemable Refuel Rewards savings available. For purchases over 25 gallons or $75, whichever applies first, you may be required to go inside to pay.
Once you begin to dispense fuel using a Reward, you must dispense to the gallon limit or you forfeit any remaining Reward balance, except in the case of a carry-over transaction as described below. For example, if you only pump fifteen (15) gallons of fuel, when the gallon limit was twenty (25) gallons, you would abandon the remaining ten (10) gallons worth of Reward balance.
If you have a Reward balance greater than the current per-gallon price of fuel, the price will roll down to the maximum capability of the fuel equipment, and your remaining Reward balance will be forfeited. For example, if you have a $3.00 per gallon Reward, the price of fuel is $2.50 and the fuel equipment has a minimum required price per gallon of 10¢, you could redeem $2.50 and forfeit a 50¢ per gallon Reward (the $3.00 per gallon Reward minus the $2.50 actually redeemed). You would be responsible for paying the minimum required price per gallon of 10¢.
If paying using multiple forms of tender (i.e., gift card and credit card or cash, multiple credit cards), please go inside to pay in order to redeem the full value of the Refuel Rewards savings. Not all Participating Sites accept multiple forms of tender for one transaction of fuel.
Rewards earned through the Refuel Rewards Program can only be redeemed at gas stations that are participating in the Refuel Rewards Program. Rewards earned through the Refuel Rewards Program cannot be combined with rewards earned through separate loyalty programs.
Specific offers, terms and conditions and expiration details relating to how to redeem Rewards for a particular offer or promotion are described at the Refuel Rewards Site or in material provided in connection with a promotion or offer.
Any information provided about fuel prices through the Refuel Rewards Site is made available to you on an “AS-IS” basis, without any guarantee or representation by Refuel as to the accuracy of such prices. Refuel disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the accuracy of the posted fuel prices and such posted prices shall not be deemed an offer to you. The fuel prices charged to you will always be determined at the time and location of the sale.
THE REFUEL REWARDS PROGRAM IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. NO REWARD MAY BE REDEEMED UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CREDITED TO THE MEMBER’S ACCOUNT. REWARDS HAVE NO CASH, MONETARY OR OTHER VALUE, CANNOT BE CONVERTED INTO ANY CURRENCY OR SOLD, CANNOT BE APPLIED AS CREDIT TO ANY PAYMENT CARD STATEMENT, AND MAY BE CANCELED AT ANY TIME. SPECIFIC REWARDS MAY EXPIRE UNDER THE TERMS OF THE PROMOTIONAL PROGRAMS OR OFFERS ESTABLISHED BY US.
