U.S. Elite Rewards Loyalty Program: Terms and Conditions of Participation
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION IN THE U.S. ELITE REWARDS LOYALTY PROGRAM CAREFULLY. BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM.
SECTION 6 BELOW CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM.
Part of our company ethos is the ouroboros cycle of growth and evolution. We are constantly looking for ways to better serve you and provide you with the best shopping experience. We are working on developing a loyalty program to better serve you. We can't wait to share the details with you! Unfortunately that means our current program will be phased out beginning July 15, 2022. The last Day to redeem points for the current program will be 1 year after acquiring them or March 1, 2023, whichever comes first.
- Membership in the rewards program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of U.S. Elite (the “Company”) and we may introduce, continue or terminate benefits and privileges in connection with the Rewards Account as we choose. The Program is open to all current customers in good-standing, 18 years of age or older. Each Customer must enroll manually for the points program online at www.us-elitegear.com – it will not be done automatically with the opening of an account. Points are earned post enrollment (not retroactively). Rewards points are earned based on payments received and are redeemable by current Customers within 6 months of being earned; points not used or redeemed prior to termination are forfeited upon the closing of the account. U.S. Elite reserves the right to adjust credit or debit any points. We may introduce, continue or terminate benefits and privileges in connection with the Rewards Account at our discretion and without notice.
- By participating in the Program, You (i) represent that You are 18 years of age or older and a resident of the United States, and (ii) agree to the following Program Terms and Conditions (these "Terms"), as well as the other rules, policies, and procedures of the Program posted or otherwise provided by us.
- Rewards Overview: As a Member, You earn points (“Rewards”) by joining the Program, referring other Members and Businesses, and from merchant promotions. You must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of the United States to become a Member. No change/currency will be given for any portion of a Program points redemption. You are solely responsible for protecting your Rewards account from unauthorized use. If the Rewards account is used in a manner that was not authorized by You, or is lost or stolen, the Company will not replace the Points. Points have no cash value. Points are personal to You and are not transferable. Points may only be redeemed in conjunction with a qualifying purchase at www.us-elitegear.com. The Company reserves the right to offer additional Program benefits or decline to offer certain benefits at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice to You. This may include making bonus points and other promotional offers available to select Members based on purchase activity, geographic location, Program participation, or other information supplied by the Member. However, once Points are issued, they will remain available for redemption for a period of 6 months or the Program expiration.
- Eligible individuals may only enroll in the Program by visiting www.us-elitegear.com (collectively, the “Site”) and following the Program prompts to register for the Program.
- You are required to provide your first name, last name, email address, mailing address, and to create a password in order to enroll. You may also have the opportunity to provide us with your birth date and mobile 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 on the Site.
- Only one Program account may be associated with a single email address and/or mailing address. In the event of a dispute over ownership of the Program membership account, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Terms, the "authorized account holder" is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
- Points are accrued at 1 point per dollar spent up to the earning cap of 1500 points per year on qualifying full price purchases and exclude eGift Cards, sales tax, state fees, discounts, shipping and delivery charges and/or other excluded charges specified by us from time-to-time. All points earned from purchases on the Site are pending until your order ships, at which point they are fully matured and capable of redemption. Purchases made outside of the United States are also not eligible for Rewards.
For every 100 points, you get a $10 coupon (min order amount to use the coupon is $59)
For every 200 points for a $20 coupon (min order amount to use the coupon is $100)
For every 300 points for a $30 coupon (min order amount to use the coupon is $125)
For every 400 points for a $40 coupon (min order amount to use the coupon is $150)
$40 is the maximum amount of rewards that may be redeemed in a single order.
- Points may be earned without making a purchase in the following ways:
Create account: 50 points
On your birthday: 100 points
Refer a friend that purchases a product: 250 points
Leave a review: 25 points

Please note that the maximum amount you can earn before making a purchase is 100 points.

Members will not receive rewards, benefits and/or points on purchases which are reimbursed by corporations or other organizations ineligible to participate in the Program.
- Rewards, benefits 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. Points credited to your Program account will be decreased or reversed, as applicable, if part or all of the purchase is returned or canceled or if the credit is obtained through fraudulent or other activity that violates these Terms. The sale, barter, transfer, or assignment of any rewards or benefits offered through the Program, other than by us, is expressly prohibited.
- Rewards cannot be exchanged or returned for points, another product or a monetary refund.
- We are not responsible for rewards, benefits and/or points lost or redeemed due to fraudulent activity.
