CUReward Program Rules & Conditions
- Every dollar in qualifying purchases, net of returns, "Participant" charges to their credit card account eligible in this Rewards Program ("Program") earns Participant one Point ("Point") as provided for in these Rules. No points are earned for finance charges, fees, cash advances, convenience checks, foreign transaction currency charges, or insurance charges posted to their account. Charges or transactions may be added to, or removed from, the above lists of eligible charges and transactions from time to time at the sole discretion of the Program. Any questions as to what constitutes an eligible charge shall be resolved at the sole discretion of the Program. Points for this Program begin to accumulate with purchases Participant makes beginning on the first day of the billing cycle in which their Program begins and ending on the last day of the last billing cycle of the announced duration of their Program. Points earned from net purchases and point adjustments made between billing cycles will be deemed as earned after being posted to their next monthly card statement.
- Points will expire four years from the end of the calendar year in which they are earned, and will expire on a first-in, first-out basis annually. (e.g. points earned in calendar year one will expire on the last business day of calendar year five.)

- Points can be used to order the awards described in the current brochure or the program web site, which may be updated from time to time. Point requirements assigned to any award are subject to change from time to time without notice, and awards may be discontinued or substituted at any time. Award suppliers have agreed that, to the best of their ability, merchandise featured in this Program will be available in sufficient quantities to meet expected demand. However, there may be instances in which product demand exceeds supply, in which case the Program reserves the right to substitute a similar item of equal value or withdraw the offer for that product. If it is not replaced Participant will be advised to make an alternate selection.
- Accounts must be open and in good standing (not canceled or terminated by either party; not delinquent, over limit, or otherwise not available to use for charges) at time of redemption. Awards are not available when a cardholder is in default under the card agreement. The sponsoring credit union reserves the right to suspend the cardholder's participation in the program until the account is in good standing.
- Merchandise will be shipped via a parcel delivery service or by the U.S. Postal Service and should arrive 4-6 weeks after the order is received; otherwise, the Participant will receive an acknowledgement stating the anticipated alternate delivery date, except as noted on items shipped directly from the manufacturer. There will be no charge for standard delivery. Additional shipping cost may apply to deliveries to Puerto Rico, Alaska and Hawaii. The Participant will be notified of the additional cost. Shipments cannot be made to a post office box or outside the United States. For more details on merchandise shipment limitations, please refer to the merchandise section on the CURewards web site.
