Premier Terms and Conditions
1. Membership & Eligibility
The Premier Program ("Program") is a complimentary rewards scheme operated by Bar & Cocoa ("Company") for its customers residing in the United States and Canada. Membership in the Program ("Membership") is restricted to individuals and limited to one account per individual. Participants must be at least 16 years of age and legal residents of the United States or Canada. Minors must obtain consent from a parent or legal guardian to enroll.
By enrolling in the Program, you (or, in the case of minors, your parent or legal guardian) agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions ("Terms"). Enrollment in the Program does not require a purchase.
Membership in programs offered by affiliates of Bar & Cocoa does not confer any rights or benefits in this Program.
2. Membership Tiers; Earning and Redeeming Premier Points
The Program offers three tiers of membership: Premier, VIP, and Elite. Each tier is associated with specific benefits ("Benefits") provided at the discretion of the Company. The Company reserves the right to modify or terminate any tier at any time, subject to applicable law and as specified in these Terms.
All Members are automatically classified under the Premier tier upon enrollment. Members will maintain Premier status unless they meet the criteria for the VIP or Elite tiers.
VIP status is conferred upon Members who spend a minimum of $350 on eligible purchases during a calendar year (January 1st - December 31st). VIP status is valid for the calendar year in which the Member qualifies and the subsequent full calendar year. Thereafter, annual requalification is required. Failure to requalify will result in demotion to Premier status.
Elite status is granted to Members who spend a minimum of $900 on eligible purchases within a calendar year (January 1st - December 31st). Elite status is valid for the calendar year of qualification and the subsequent full calendar year, requiring annual requalification thereafter. Failure to requalify will result in demotion to Premier status.
Members earn one Premier point for each U.S. or Canadian dollar spent on eligible purchases. The Company may offer bonus points during promotional events, subject to separate terms and conditions. To earn points, Members must provide their registered email or phone number during the transaction. Points will be deducted if the associated order is cancelled.
Points are applicable to purchases made online. Points are not applicable to the purchase of Gift Cards, or taxes, or shipping costs.
Points may be redeemed for rewards ("Rewards") at the Company’s discretion. Points have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash, or any other form of benefit, unless explicitly authorized by the Company.
Points will expire if a Member has not engaged in point-earning or point-redeeming activity for a period of 12 months. Additionally, points will expire upon the termination or revocation of Membership for any reason. For inquiries regarding point activity, contact Customer Service at email@example.com.
