Earning Program Points
Members will receive points (“Program Points”) on their Member account through Qualifying Purchases (defined below) and participation in special programs and promotional offers that may be announced by Brighca in its sole discretion from time to time. The amount of Program Points in a Member’s account is used to determine the Program tier status of the Member. Additional information regarding Program Points is set forth below:
Qualifying Purchases: Purchases of merchandise (after promotional discount offers have been applied, before taxes and shipping charges have been applied and reduced by returns, refunds or credit adjustments, rounded to the nearest dollar) made online at un.elemis.com (“Qualifying Purchases”) count toward Members’ Program Points accrual. Generally, a Program Point will accrue for each $1.00 spent for a Qualifying Purchase, rounding up to account for cents in a purchase, through certain promotions or offers may provide for different Program Points accrual.
Exclusions from Qualifying Purchases: Program Points will not be awarded on unauthorized or fraudulent purchases, the purchase of gift cards or purchases made with gift cards. Program Points will also not be awarded if, in Brighca’s determination, the merchandise purchased will be used for resale or commercial use and any Program Points previously awarded on such purchases will be forfeited.
Email Address: A current, valid email address is required for a Member to be able to participate in the program and receive Program Points. Members must notify Brighca of any change of email address by updating Member account information online at brighca.com.
Member Identification: Members must identify themselves with their applicable Member account email address to receive credit for Qualifying Purchases made through brighca.com. Members must sign into their online accounts before checkout in order to receive Program Points.
Processing of Program Points: Program Points earned from purchases on brighca.com are not credited until 30 days after the date of a Qualifying Purchase. Once Program Points are credited to a Member’s account, the Program Points are deemed to be accrued as of the date of the Qualifying Purchase.
Promotional Offers: Special programs and promotional offers for earning Program Points may be made from time to time in Brighca Discretion. Such offers will be subject to the terms and conditions specified in the applicable program or offer.
Program Points Balance: Members may view Program Points balance at any time by visiting their Member account page at Brighca.com.
Program Tiers and Benefits
The Program consists of three tiers, each with an increasing number of benefits available to Members. Eligibility for each tier is determined by the number of Program Points a Member has earned within each 12-month period, the first of which begins on the date when a Member enrolls in the Program. The benefits applicable to each tier are described at brighca.com/prestige-club, but free shipping on all orders on brighca.com to the 50 U.S. states to all tiers. Members must be signed into their Program account at the time of purchase for free shipping to apply. This free shipping benefit cannot be applied to previous purchases and cannot be redeemed for cash. Free shipping will be automatically applied at checkout. See brighca.com/delivery for shipping details. The three tiers and the number of Program Points required for a Member to be eligible for that tier are as follows:
Tier 1, Insider 0-349 Program Points
Tier 2, VIP 350-899 Program Points
Tier 3, Prestige Gold 900+ Program Points
Expiration of Program Points & Tier Status
Program Points are valid for one year from a Member’s Program “anniversary date.” This is the anniversary of the date the Member enrolled in the Program and occurs on a 12-month cycle. On a Member’s anniversary date each year, the Member’s Program Points reset to zero until the Member Start accumulating new Program Points. A new Member will automatically be placed in Tier 1, Insider and be eligible for the benefits of that tier. Members will be automatically moved up to the next tier (up to Tier 3, Prestige Gold) when they earn Program Points during each 12-month period sufficient to make them eligible for such upward move. After a Member’s initial 12-month period, each subsequent 12-month membership period shall commence with the Member having the tier status as in effect on the last day of the immediately preceding 12-month period. Such tier status shall continue through the end of that succeeding 12-month period and the next 12-month period shall be based on that prior year’s tier status. For example, if a Member joins the Program on January 1, 2020 and achieves Tier 2, VIP status within the first 12-month period of Membership, when the second 12-month period begins on January 1, 2021, the Member’s Program points reset to zero, but the Tier2, VIP status continues through December 31, 2021. But if during that second year the Member hasn’t accumulated enough new points to maintain that Tier 2, VIP status, the Member’s status will reset to Tier 1, Insider on January, 2022.
Returns of merchandise must be made in accordance with Brighca’s return policy available at brighca.com/returns. Upon the return of an item accepted by Brighca, the amount spent on that item and the Program Points applied to Member’s account for the original purchase will be deducted from the Member’s account.
Membership Revocation or Cancellation
Brighca reserves the right to revoke the membership of any Member and/or revote any or all benefits that the Member may have earned at any time in Brighca’s sole discretion. In addition, membership will be revoked if, in the sole determination of Brighca, the Member abuses any aspect of the Program, including, but not limited to, fraudulently using the Program, failing to comply with these Program Terms or otherwise earning Program benefits through deception, forgery and/or fraud. In the event that Brighca revokes a membership or terminates the Program for any reason, all Program Points and benefits accrued in the Member account will be forfeited. If a Member decides to no longer by a part of the Program, the Member may cancel their membership by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. If a membership is cancelled, all accumulated Program Points, benefits and tier status will automatically expire.
If a Member’s account is inactive for a period of thirty-six (36) consecutive months without any Account Activity, that account will automatically be terminated. “Account Activity” means a Qualifying Purchase linked to a Member’s account. Neither logging into a program account by itself nor use of Program Points is considered “Account Activity.”
Membership Transfers Not Permitted
Program memberships, Program Points and benefits may not be merged, transferred, purchased, offered for sale, sold, assigned or traded, including as a result of the death of a Member or as part of a domestic relations agreement. Doing so will void the Member’s account.
