1. Membership Eligibility and Overview
1.1. The Aveda Plus Rewards℠ Canada Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of Aveda Corporation (“Aveda,” “we,” “our” or “us”). The Program is available to individuals for their personal use only and is limited to one account per individual. Corporations, associations or other groups may not participate in the Program. Individuals who are legal residents Canada (including its territories and possessions) and at least 18 years or older and who provide and maintain a valid e-mail address are eligible to become members. No purchase is necessary to join the Program, but a one-time, nonrefundable enrollment fee of ten Canadian dollars (CAD $10) is required in order to register for the Program. The Program cannot be used for any business or commercial purposes and we may refuse to create an account for any reason. Employees of Aveda and The Estée Lauder Companies and its affiliates, and such employees’ family members (i.e. immediate family members residing in the same household as the employee) are not eligible to participate in the Program. Individuals employed by salons, spas and retail locations that participate in the Program, and family members of such individuals, are not eligible to participate in the Program. Enrollment fees of refused accounts will be refunded.
2. Program Enrollment
2.1. Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program through one of the following options:
2.1.1. Visit www.aveda.ca (the “Site”) and follow the Program prompts to register for the Program;
2.1.2. Visit an Aveda-owned retail store (i.e. Aveda Experience Center) or institute and tell an associate you would like to register for the Program; or
2.1.3. Visit an Aveda partner retail location, salon, spa or institute that participates in the Program and tell an associate you would like to register for the Program.
2.2. You are required to provide your full name, mailing address and e-mail address, in order to enroll. If you enroll at the Site, you must create a password in order to enroll. You may also be given the opportunity to provide your birth date and phone number, but this information is optional. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information through your account on the Site or by contacting Aveda Customer Service at +1 (800) 644 4831.
2.3. Only one Program account may be associated with a single member and a single e-mail address. In the event of a dispute over the identity of the member enrolled in the Program, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the e-mail address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Program Terms, the "authorized account holder" is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted e-mail address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.
3. How the Program Works and Program Benefits
3.1. The Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing our products. You are able to earn points by making eligible purchases. Purchases made at (1) Aveda-owned retail stores (i.e. Aveda Experience Center) and institutes, (2) Program-participating partner salons, spas, retail locations and institutes and (3) the Site are eligible for the Program. For your purchase to qualify for the Program, you must be enrolled in the Program and (a) your Aveda Plus Rewards membership number must be linked to your online account at the time of purchase on the Site; or (b) you must provide your Program member identification card or membership number when making your purchase at an Aveda-owned retail store (i.e. Aveda Experience Center) or Program-participating salon, spa, retail location or institute and (c) the products must be eligible for points. For example, members do not earn points on purchases of Aveda Gift Cards and Aveda eGift Cards. Failure to present a membership identification card (digital of physical) or your membership identification number at time of purchase may delay point accumulation or prevent you from receiving points. Once you earn a certain number/level of points, you may be eligible for certain rewards applicable to that number of points, which rewards may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Eligible product purchases and other opportunities to earn points will be posted on the Site or may be published through other media (e.g., in-store, in marketing communications, social media, etc.). Visit our FAQs to learn more about earning points and using points to obtain rewards.
3.2. Program members earn 10 points for every CAD $1 spent on qualifying purchases at Program-participating locations in Canada and the Site. You may also earn bonus points for qualifying purchases made during exclusive promotions. Terms and conditions apply; see details of each promotion for more information. Qualifying purchases include regular-priced Aveda merchandise, and exclude sales tax, services, Aveda Gift Cards and eGift Cards, spa/salon/boutique gift cards, promotions (unless otherwise specified by us), government fees, shipping charges, delivery charges or other excluded purchases or charges specified by us from time-to-time. Program members also earn: 10 points for every £1 spent on qualifying purchases at Program-participating locations in the United Kingdom; 10 points for every US $1 spent on qualifying purchases at Program-participating locations in the United States; and 7 points for every €1 spent on qualifying purchases at Program-participating locations in the Republic of Ireland. Members do not earn points on purchases of Aveda Gift Cards and Aveda eGift Cards, but members will earn points when redeeming Aveda Gift Cards and Aveda eGift Cards for a qualifying Aveda purchase. Aveda reserves the right to change the manner in which members accumulate points in its sole discretion. You will receive a notice of any such change between 90 and 60 days before it comes into effect.
3.3. Purchases made in salons, spas, department stores and retail stores that do not participate in the Program do not qualify for the Program, and you will not earn points on such purchases.
3.4. Neither accounts nor rewards and/or points may be shared or combined by members. Only the member paying for the products may accumulate rewards and/or points. We reserve the right to monitor the number of accounts per household and refuse, merge, suspend or close additional or duplicate accounts at any time.
3.5. Points earned through the Program will expire if your account becomes inactive. To keep your account active, you must make a purchase or make a redemption under your Program account once every 12 months by doing any one of the following: (1) logging into your Program account on the Site and making a purchase; (2) presenting your Program member identification card when making a purchase at Aveda-owned retail stores (i.e. Aveda Experience Center) and institutes or at Program-participating salons, spas, retail locations and institutes; or (3) redeeming points/rewards on the Site, at Aveda-owned retail stores (i.e. Aveda Experience Center) and institutes or at Program-participating salons, spas, retail locations and institutes according to the Program Terms or using points to redeem an instant cash reward. Membership will expire if a member is inactive for a period of 12 months or more.
3.6. Rewards and/or points earned through the Program have no cash value, are non-transferable, and you have no property rights in or to rewards or other Program benefits. Purchase balances and/or points credited to your Program account will be decreased or reversed, as applicable, if part or all of the purchase is returned or cancelled or if the credit is obtained through fraudulent or other activity that violates these Program Terms as determined by us in our sole discretion. The sale, barter, transfer, donation, auction or assignment of any rewards offered through the Program, other than by us, is expressly prohibited. Any applicable tax liabilities resulting from rewards earned or points awarded under the Program are the responsibility of the member.
3.7. Rewards cannot be exchanged or returned for points, another product, a discount on purchases or a monetary refund except when expressly permitted by us in our sole discretion. Rewards may be subject to limited availability. Not all rewards will be available in all locations.
3.8. The products and services available through the Program and any samples that we may provide to you are for personal use only. You may not sell or resell any of the products, services, or samples you purchase or otherwise receive from us. We reserve the right, without notice, to cancel or reduce the quantity of any order to be filled and/or any products or services to be provided to you that we believe, in our sole discretion, may result in the violation of our Program Terms.
3.9. We are not responsible for rewards and/or points lost or redeemed due to fraudulent activity by you or any third party. We are not responsible for rewards that are lost, stolen or otherwise destroyed. We are not responsible for a third-party merchant’s failure to honour rewards.
3.10. We reserve the right to change Program rewards/benefits, how you earn points and how we evaluate and reward your eligible purchases and/or other Program activity. We reserve the right to place limits on the number of purchases or activities that are eligible for the Program and/or for any point level, the number or types of rewards you may receive or earn at any given point level, in a given time period or for the duration of the Program, and/or any combination thereof. You will receive a notice of any such change between 90 and 60 days before it comes into effect.
3.11. It may take up to 30 days for eligible purchases to post to your account. If you make a qualifying purchase at the Site, points will be added to your online account when your qualifying purchase ships. We are not responsible for failure, delay or error by a Program-participating store, salon or spa location in notifying us of points to be credited. If you have concerns that a purchase or other activity was not properly applied to your account, you should contact Aveda Customer Service at +1 (800) 230-8051 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You must specify your Program membership number, the date of the Program activity, and the issue(s) you encountered. You may be required to validate your account by providing your name, phone number, address, e-mail address and/or birth date associated with the account. You must contact Aveda Customer Service via email or telephone within one-hundred and twenty (120) days after the date the purchase or other Program activity took place or no points will be credited. We are not responsible for late notifications about purchases or other Program activities not being credited to an account.
3.12. Rewards can only be redeemed in Aveda-owned freestanding retail stores (i.e. Aveda Experience Centers) in Canada; Program-participating salons, spas, retail locations and institutes in Canada; on the Site; and by calling Aveda Customer Service at +1 (800) 230-8051 from within Canada. Specific rewards vary based on location and are subject to store/Site availability. Not all rewards can be redeemed in all locations.
3.14. Program members are eligible to receive one (1) birthday gift per member per year. If you have provided your birth date, your birthday gift certificate (w/offer code) will be emailed in the calendar month before your birth month to the email address associated with your membership (provided you have provided your birth date to us at least 45 days prior to the start of your birth month and you have opted-in to receive marketing communications). During the month of your birthday and prior to the expiration date on your birthday gift certificate, you can redeem your Program birthday gift by either: (1) logging into your Program account on the Site, making a purchase (excluding travel-sized products) and providing your offer code; or (2) presenting your Program member identification card or membership number and birthday gift certificate at an Aveda-owned retail store (i.e. Aveda Experience Center) or institute or at a Program-participating salon, spa, retail location or institute. Birthday gifts cannot be transferred, delayed, exchanged or returned. Specific birthday gift rewards may vary based on location and are subject to store/Site availability. You are eligible to receive one (1) birthday gift per member per year. If you have provided your birth date, your birthday gift certificate (w/offer code) will be mailed to you within 28 days of your birth date at the mailing address registered to your account.
3.15. As one of our rewards, you can immediately reduce the purchase price of eligible merchandise in exchange for the redemption of a specified number of points. Minimum purchase requirements may apply; not all Program-participating locations will accept immediate discount rewards. The number of points to be redeemed to achieve a particular discount may change and there are limits on the maximum immediate discount available. Please review the terms of the immediate discount reward prior to redemption; other terms and conditions may apply. If you return a product purchased with an immediate discount reward, your points will be re-credited to your account and the purchase price will be refunded to your original method of purchase.
We may discontinue or change the terms of the immediate discount reward at any time. You will receive a notice of any such change between 90 and 60 days before it comes into effect.
The immediate discount reward may be used for the purchase of merchandise only. It may not be used to pay for services (including salon services), sales tax or shipping charges, if any. The immediate discount reward is not cash, has no cash value without a purchase and may not be altered, sold, bartered or transferred. The immediate discount reward is applied last after all other discounts. No points will be earned on the value of the immediate discount reward, but you will earn points on any incremental dollars spent on products over the amount of the immediate discount reward.
