Rewards Terms and Conditions

Raise Marketplace Inc. (“Sponsor”) offers a variety of promotional and referral Reward (“Rewards”) Programs (“Programs”) in connection with Raise.com (“Raise”), the Sponsor mobile applications and associated sites (collectively, the “Site”). The following Rewards Terms & Conditions (these “Rewards Terms”) contain important information regarding the Program. Please read the Rewards Terms carefully. These Rewards Terms are a binding agreement between you and Sponsor and will govern your participation in any and all Programs. By participating in any of the Programs, including redeeming any rewards offered under any of the Programs (“Rewards”), you agree to the Rewards Terms, as well as the Site Terms & Conditions, which are incorporated herein and can be found on the Site. Sponsor reserves the right to modify these Rewards Terms at any time, without notice to you, so it is important that you check the Rewards Terms periodically. Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, cancel, change, suspend or modify any aspect of the Program and/or any Rewards offered under any Program at any time, including the availability of any Reward, without notice.

1. Program Period

The Programs will continue until terminated, suspended, modified, or converted to another Rewards Program by Sponsor (the “Program Period”). Raise may change the Program Period at any time and may determine to terminate any Program period in its sole discretion, in particular if it believes any Program is being abused or is otherwise not accomplishing the intended purpose of the Program.

2. Eligibility

To participate in any Program, you must first register for a Raise account at https://www.raise.com/user/sign_up, Raise mobile applications or such other locations as identified by any Rewards Program and become a member of Raise (a “Member”). To register as a Member, you must be at least 13 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States. If you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to become a Member of Raise, open an account on the Site or participate in any Program. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you may only become a Member, use the Site and participate in any Program under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian. By registering as a Member, using the Site and participating in any Program, you represent that you are at least 13 years of age or older. All Members are required to comply with the Terms & Conditions of the Site at all times.

Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Member from participating in the Program, and to invalidate any and all Rewards for abuse, fraud, or any violation of these Rewards Terms, any other terms & conditions of a Rewards Program, or the Site Terms & Conditions, at their sole discretion.

3. Raise Referral Program Terms & Limitations

One of the Programs offered by the Sponsor is the “Raise Referral Program”, whereby a Member is rewarded for referring friends to Raise. Once you have become a Member, you can begin racking up Raise Rewards under this Program (“Referral Rewards”). You can share savings with your friends through Sponsor’s referral program via email, text, Facebook, Twitter or word-of-mouth. If you refer a friend who then signs up for Raise, and within 30 days of signing up spends a minimum of $1 on a single order, Raise will give you $5 in Referral Rewards. Friends referred to Raise through this program have 30 days to enter their claim code to receive their $5 Reward and qualify the referring Member for their Referral Reward. For example, if a Member refers a friend to Raise through this Program and the referral enters their claim code for a purchase of a gift card on Raise within 30 days of the Member’s referral and the referral spends at least $1 or more of their own money on the gift card, then the referring Member will earn $5 in Referral Rewards. There is no limit to the number of friends you can refer; however, you cannot earn more than $100 in Rewards per calendar year through the Raise Referral Program. Raise reserves the right to change any of terms the Raise Referral Program, including the minimum amount that must be spent to use the Referral Rewards, limit how or when the Referral Rewards can be redeemed and whether there are limitations as to how any Referral Rewards can be used in combination with any Promotional Rewards or Promotional Rewards Programs.

You agree that any and all Referral Rewards claim codes in this Referral Program: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose of this Program; and (ii) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred. Furthermore, participants in this Rewards Referral Program may not offer additional consideration to referrals in this Program, including any offer of consideration to enter their claim codes for a purchase transaction on the Site. You further agree that you may only have ONE member account on Raise and that to the extent Raise determines you have established more than ONE member account on Raise, the Sponsor will be permitted to cancel this member account and any Referral Rewards and Promotional Rewards associated with that additional Raise member account(s).

You can check your Raise Rewards balance on your Account Page.

4. Promotional Reward Programs Terms & Limitations

Sponsor also offers a variety of promotional Reward Programs, whereby Sponsor will provide or offer certain persons Rewards in conjunction with various promotional events, programs and initiatives. These promotional Rewards Programs will often identify a time limitation for redeeming any Rewards redemption codes associated with a particular promotional Rewards Program, after which any such Rewards will no longer be redeemable or valid for redemption on the Site.

Raise may identify additional terms & conditions for any Promotional Rewards Program that may (i) limit who can use or redeem a particular promotional Reward, including if it is for new members only, (ii) limit when a particular promotional Reward can be used, (iii) limit what a promotional Reward can be used to purchase, (iv) limit how many promotional Rewards are available to be redeemed in a particular Rewards Program, (v) limit the combination of any particular Promotional Rewards with other Promotional Rewards or Referral Rewards and (vi) provide other particular terms and conditions specifically related to that Promotional Rewards Program. If any of these terms are not being complied with by any member of Raise, then Raise reserves the right to not honor the redemption of any such member’s Promotional Rewards.

Furthermore, Raise reserves the right to limit the number of promotional Rewards offered under any Rewards Program at any time, including the right to terminate any Rewards Program in its sole discretion. Raise, in it sole discretion, may at any time change minimum spend thresholds for taking advantage of any particular Promotional Rewards Program Promotional Rewards. This change will be reflected at the time of check-out for the member. Furthermore, Raise can refuse redemption of certain Rewards promotional codes, to the extent such codes have been promoted by a source not authorized by Raise or contemplated for that particular Reward Program or Promotional Reward code. Again, to the extent any Promotion Reward Program is limited to new members or single use, Raise may not honor any Promotional Rewards they believe to be in violation of this term or limitation, including if Raise determines you have more than one Member Account on Raise.

5. Redemption of Rewards

Raise Rewards are redeemable toward purchases of gift card products solely on the Site, and you can redeem them during the checkout process. All redemptions are final.

To redeem your Rewards, simply add items to your shopping cart and click the “Checkout” button (if you’re not already signed in, the next screen will prompt you to sign in to your account). Continue through the checkout process. When you get to the Shopping Cart section, you’ll see your total number of Rewards available to redeem. Rewards will be applied toward your order and the dollar value will be deducted from your order total.

Rewards are applied in full. However for each order total that is equal to or less than the amount of available rewards, you will be charged a $1 fee. If your order total is more than the amount of available Rewards, no fee will be charged. You cannot redeem Rewards for more than the total amount of your purchase. Members may apply all or none of their Rewards to an order, provided that Member pays the remaining order balance with their chosen form of payment. There may be limitations as to whether certain Referral Rewards and Promotional Codes may be redeemed in combination with each other. If this is the case, you will be notified at checkout, giving you the option to choose between using Rewards or a Promo Code for that particular order. If you choose the latter, know that the Rewards will remain in your account for six months from the date they were originally earned.

6. About Gift Cards

Gift cards are subject to each individual retailers’ policies and program terms. For details, see the information on the back of the gift card or visit the relevant retailers’ websites for their particular terms & conditions governing a particular gift card.

Gift cards are subject to availability. If the requested gift card is unavailable, or unredeemable for any reason, Raise will replace the gift card with one of equal or similar value. If a suitable replacement is unavailable, Raise will reinstate any Rewards deducted from Member's account to be used on a future purchase.

7. Reward Value and Ownership

Rewards are for promotional purposes only, are not to be considered property in any way, and have no cash value or other value unless redeemed toward a purchase on the Site in accordance with these terms. Rewards are not transferable and cannot be bought, sold, gifted or used as payment for any outstanding balances owed on your account at Raise. Rewards are for the benefit only of the Member who has earned those Rewards in accordance with the relevant Program. A Member may not otherwise redeem these Rewards for cash. Rewards can only be redeemed toward the purchase of gift cards on the Site. Rewards are not a gift card.

8. Refunds & Returns

All Rewards redemptions are final. Rewards earned via credit card transaction purchases on the Site will be rescinded in the event that such purchase transaction is refunded or cancelled for any reason.

If you earn Rewards with a transaction that is later refunded or cancelled, and you redeem those Rewards for a purchase, Raise may cancel the transaction, interrupt shipment of merchandise, withhold subsequent Rewards, or collect in another way any amounts you owe Sponsor (this may include charging an equivalent dollar amount to your preferred payment method). You hereby authorize Sponsor to charge your preferred payment method in such circumstance.

Any items received as a result of Reward redemption may only be exchanged for a refund of the applicable Reward redeemed for such item (not cash).

9. Program Rewards Expiration

Rewards will expire six (6) months from the date they were either (i) first earned under a particular Program or (ii) activated by a Member in conjunction with a particular Rewards Program. If a Member does not redeem Rewards within this timeframe, a Member forfeits all such Rewards and the Rewards will cease to exist in the Member’s account. Your "My Rewards" page on the Site lists your Rewards history, which displays the dates your Rewards were earned or activated and when those particular Rewards will lapse and cease to be valid Rewards in your Raise account.

10. Rewards Taxability

Rewards may be taxable, depending on the value of the item and the federal, state, and local tax laws applicable to Member. Members are solely responsible for reporting such items on their tax returns and paying any associated tax liability. Sponsor makes no warranty in any respect as to any Rewards, merchandise, or service available within the Program.

11. Termination and Suspension of Participation in Program

Sponsor may (in its sole discretion) prohibit, terminate or suspend any Member’s participation in any aspect of the Program if Sponsor determines (or suspects) that such Member has engaged in or has attempted to engage in any: (i) act in violation of these Rewards Terms, the Site Terms & Conditions or any other terms & conditions applicable to that particular Rewards Program; (ii) action that could damage, tamper with or corrupt the operation of any Rewards Program or Site; (iii) act with the intent to annoy, harass or abuse any other person; (iv) inappropriate, uncooperative, disruptive, fraudulent, potentially fraudulent, or unusual behavior or activity; or (v) activity deemed, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, to be generally inconsistent with the intended operation or purpose of the particular Rewards Program. Any decision Sponsor makes relating to termination or suspension of any Member’s participation in the Program shall be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor shall be the sole determiner in cases of suspected abuse, fraud, or breach of these Rewards Terms or the Site Terms & Conditions.

If you (or Raise) close your Member account or terminate your participation in a particular Program, all Rewards will be forfeited, even if your Member account is later reopened or you re-enroll in the Program.

12. Release

By participating in the Program, a Member releases Sponsor, its parent company, subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, advertising, partners and promotions agencies and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, “Released Parties”) from any and all liabilities, claims, losses, damages, costs or expenses, arising from or related to, the Program, the Rewards and/or the use of any Rewards.

13. Indemnification

Members agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Released Parties harmless from and against any and all third party claims, demands, liabilities, costs or expenses, including attorney’s fees and costs, arising from, or related to any breach by Member of any of these Rewards Terms or any violation by Member of applicable law.

14. Governing Law, Venue & Arbitration

The laws of the State of Illinois shall govern these Rewards Terms. Member hereby expressly consents to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the courts located in the State of Illinois, Cook County, for all matters arising in connection with these Rewards Terms or Member’s participation in the Program.
