3. Earning SC Rewards Points
There are several ways to earn SC Rewards points, as set out below.
4. Redeeming SC Rewards points
To “redeem” means to use your SC Rewards points to pay, or partially pay, for eligible purchases by using your SC Rewards Card at the point of sale. You must first convert points on your SC Rewards Card using the online portal or mobile App. You can redeem the SC Rewards points you earn for eligible purchases (see section 6 below for exclusions), or for any other purposes of which we may advise you from time to time.
You must redeem a minimum of 10,000 SC Rewards points at a time, which are worth $10 in rewards. If you want to redeem more than 10,000 points at one time, you must redeem them in increments of 10,000 SC Rewards points, each increment being worth $10 in rewards.
On occasion, we may offer you redemption promotions in certain stores, or for products or services, such as an increase in the value of SC Rewards points or a lower minimum redemption amount. There may be additional applicable terms and conditions that accompany such promotions.
The maximum value of SC Rewards points that you can redeem in one transaction is $500.00, or such higher amount as may be set by us from time to time.
SC Rewards points do not expire. However, we reserve the right to close your Account without notice if you do not earn or redeem any points at least once every 1 year, if you do not maintain an active SC Rewards account, or for any reason set out in these Terms and Conditions. You can contact us to request the reinstatement of the value of your SC Rewards points at the time your Account was closed, to be issued in a new Account that belongs to you.
