II. Earning Points.
A. Program Overview. You may accrue points that are eligible for reward redemption (“SP Points”) when you spend money on Qualifying Purchases, defined in Section 3(A) below. SP Points are calculated based on the amount paid by you for Qualifying Purchases—excluding all discounts, but including gift certificate use—and does not include shipping, taxes, or other fees. In order to receive SP Points, you must be logged into your Account at the time of purchase. For in-person purchases, you must alert the cashier at check-out that you have an Account and provide your name and email address for verification. Failure to do so forfeits your ability to request points at a later time. Please allow at least two (2) weeks for your SP Points to post on your Account. If a Qualifying Purchase is returned, SP Points will be deducted from your account in accordance with Section III.B. below. You must have an active Account in good standing at the time of the Qualifying Purchase to accrue SP Points.
B. Participant Tier Status. Participants earn SP Points at various rates based on their tier status, as reflected in their Account details (“Tier Status”). There are seven (7) tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Black, Sapphire, and Diamond. Tier Status is calculated based on the total number of points a Participant has earned since creating an account with Snow Peak (“Life Value Points” or “LVPs”). Life Value Points do not expire and are not redeemable for rewards—they are used to determine a Participant’s Tier Status. Each tier provides certain benefits, as described in Section 3(B) below, and can be achieved by obtaining the number of Life Value Points set forth in the table below.
C. Earning LVPs. Regardless of Tier Status, Participants earn Life Value Points per dollar spent (rounded up at $0.50) on Qualified Purchases, defined in Section 3(A) below, at the following rates:
i. 100 LVPs awarded for every U.S. dollar ($1) spent on Snow Peak products, such as gear and apparel purchases.
ii. 200 LVPs awarded for every U.S. dollar ($1) spent on Snow Peak services, such as camping events.
D. LVPs for Preexisting Accounts. An account that pre-dates this Program (a “Preexisting Account”) will be credited LVPs for its prior connected purchases (as reflected in the Preexisting Account’s historical purchase record) in accordance with Section II.C. No LVPs will be awarded for purchases made that are not reflected in the Preexisting Account’s historical record.
E. Earning SP Points. Participants earn SP Points as of the date an order ships (for online purchases), the date of purchase (for brick-and-mortar purchases), or the date services are used (for service purchases). SP Points accumulate at the rate set forth in the table below that matches your current Tier Status, which is measured as of the date of the Qualifying Purchase pursuant to these Terms.
|Tier||Rate of SP Points Earned|
|Bronze||USD $1.00 = 2 SP Points|
|Silver||USD $1.00 = 3 SP Points|
|Gold||USD $1.00 = 5 SP Points|
|Platinum||USD $1.00 = 6 SP Points|
|Black||USD $1.00 = 7 SP Points|
|Sapphire||USD $1.00 = 8 SP Points|
F. Additional Benefit Opportunities. From time to time, at Snow Peak’s discretion, you may be able to earn additional LVPs and/or SP Points and/or Program benefits by completing specific actions. Please access https://www.snowpeak.com/account for these additional opportunities, which are subject to change at any time.
III. Qualifying Purchases; Returns; Other Limitations.
A. Qualifying Purchases. A “Qualifying Purchase” is a merchandise or services purchase made by you with your Account information at any of our authorized retailers’ brick-and-mortar or online stores (our “Authorized Retailers”). Qualifying Purchases exclude purchases of gift cards unless permitted under terms and conditions of a particular promotion. Qualifying Purchases exclude: purchases made using a discount code, including an employee discount; purchases made using a Prodeal discount; prior purchases, purchases made using a merchandise or return credit as tender; purchases made through third-party platforms (such as Instagram and eBay); and purchases of specific products, services, or promotional offers that Snow Peak may expressly exclude from the Program. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will accumulate LVPs (not SP Points) on purchases you make using a discount code (including employee and ProDeal discounts).
B. Returns. If a Qualifying Purchase is returned, Life Value Points and SP Points will be deducted from your Account in an amount equal to the corresponding LVPs and SP Points earned (whether or not they have yet posted to your Account) for the portion of the Qualifying Purchase that is returned. If your Account SP Points are insufficient to cover a deduction related to a return, your Account may become negative and subsequent SP Points earned will first be applied to reduce the negative balance. We may suspend or cancel Accounts with a negative balance. If your Account is suspended in this way, you may seek reinstatement by contacting our customer service team at email@example.com, which Snow Peak may or may not permit, at its own discretion. If your Account’s SP Points are insufficient to cover a deduction related to a return, this will impact the refund amount you receive back from Snow Peak. Your refund amount will be reduced by $0.01 per SP Point you cannot return. For example, if you make a purchase and have earned 200 SP Points, which you subsequently redeem for a $2.00 Discount Reward prior to returning the product, your refund for the original Qualifying Purchase will be reduced by $2.00. If you return products purchased with SP Points, the SP Points used will be returned and credited to your Account, to the extent we can identify that SP Points were used in the original purchase. Returns of gifts you received which you did not purchase or returns of items purchased without noting your Account will not be tied back to your Account for return credit or any other reward. In a return transaction where SP Points were used to reduce the total amount paid, you are entitled to a refund for any amount actually paid. This Section does not apply to final sale items or Product Rewards (defined in Section IV(A)(ii) below) as these items cannot be returned.
C. No Cash Value or Transferability. SP Points do not constitute property, do not entitle you to a vested right or interest, and do not have a cash value. As such, SP Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable, or assignable for any reason. The sale or transfer of SP Points is strictly prohibited.
IV. Redeeming SP Points.
A. Rewards Overview. SP Points can be redeemed to:
i. Deduct a dollar amount from a retail order total when you make a purchase at one of our Authorized Retailers (“Discount Rewards”). SP Points can be redeemed at 100 SP Points per $1.00 off. For example, a 300-point redemption results in a $3.00 Discount Reward.
B. Redemption Instructions. Discount Rewards are redeemable at check-out, where you may choose to use any discounts eligible with your SP Points. Product Rewards are redeemable by logging into your Account online, selecting a Product Reward, and following any redemption instructions provided therein. SP Points will be removed from your Account upon the finalization of any transaction in which they are used.
C. Limits on Reward Redemption. Discount Rewards cannot be redeemed for gift cards, gift certificates, store credit, sales tax, prior purchases, licenses, or services such as shipping, or on purchases of specific products or services that Snow Peak expressly excludes from Discount Reward redemption. All rewards must be redeemed prior to or on the expiration date (see Section 5 for details on expiration). Product Rewards are final sale and cannot be returned.
V. Expiration; Effect of Account Termination.
A. Inactive Accounts. If you make no Qualifying Purchases during any continuous (rolling) 12-month period, your SP Points will expire on the 366th day of inactivity. LVPs do not expire and will remain in your account until your account is cancelled, termination, or deleted for any reason. We reserve the right to cancel inactive Accounts.
B. Snow Peak’s Right to Terminate Accounts. If we determine, in our sole judgement and discretion, that you have abused the Program, including by failing to abide by these Terms or by transferring, selling, or bartering (including any attempts thereof) Life Value Points, SP Points, products purchased as part of a Qualifying Purchase, redeemed rewards, or promotional offers, and including any misrepresentation of fact relating thereto or other improper conduct, we may terminate your Account and disqualify you from future Program participation.
C. Effect of Termination or Cancellation. If your Account is cancelled or terminated for any reason, your Account will be closed. Any outstanding SP Points and Life Value Points in your account will be forfeited without notice or compensation to you.

D. One Year to Assert Claims.

E. Right to Opt-Out. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted these Terms by providing us with notice of your decision to opt-out by certified mail addressed to Snow Peak at 404 NW 23rd Ave, Portland, OR 97210. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name, mailing address, and email address. The notice must also clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration.

F. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Snow Peak and our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due or relating to or arising out of your use of the Program in violation of these Terms and/or arising from a breach of these Terms or the documents they incorporate by reference, and/or any breach of your representations and warranties set forth in these Terms of Service, and/or arising out of or relating to rewards redemption or third-party transactions that you enter or attempt to enter in connection with your Account, and/or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.
G. Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL SNOW PEAK, ITS DIRECTORS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST OR STOLEN LIFE VALUE POINTS AND/OR SP POINTS, ANY ERRORS OR OMISSION IN THE PROGRAM OR IN COMMUNICATIONS REGARDING THE PROGRAM, OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES WAS FORESEEABLE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. HOWEVER, THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISIONS SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY CLAIMS, DAMAGES, COSTS OR EXPENSES ARE THE RESULT OF SNOW PEAK’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, WILLFUL INJURY OR WILLFUL VIOLATION OF LAW.
H. Waiver; Severability; Interpretation. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with these Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights. We reserve the right to interpret and apply the policies and procedures communicated in these Terms in our sole and absolute discretion. You agree to fully and unconditionally accept our decision, which is final and binding in all matters related to the Program, your purchases, and these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. If any portion of this Section 6 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, including but not limited to because it is found to be unconscionable, (i) the unenforceable or unlawful provision will be severed from these Terms; (ii) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision will have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 6 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 6; and (iii) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The litigation of those claims will be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 6 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 6 will be enforceable. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms shall not be construed against the drafting party.
