Mizuno USA, Inc. Customer Loyalty Program Terms and Conditions
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM
The Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program is powered by Annex Cloud. Participation and benefits shall be considered void where prohibited by law. Taxes may apply where required by law. Mizuno USA, Inc. assumes no liability for any user's participation that contravenes the laws or regulations of his or her state. Your participation is subject to present and future program rules. Your participation is valid only at MizunoUSA.com and rewards may only be earned and redeemed on MizunoUSA.com.
The Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program is available to all MizunoUSA.com account holders. A user will accumulate loyalty rewards points for the following actions relating to his or her account as set forth below:
1 point = For every $1 spent on the purchase of a product, but not for any amount spent on taxes or shipping costs. For the avoidance of doubt, Loyalty rewards points are only earned for money actually spent on the product, not for the amounts of any discounts or payment by gift card. If an order is cancelled, any loyalty rewards points awarded for the purchase will be cancelled. If a product is returned, Mizuno USA, Inc. reserves the right to cancel the loyalty rewards points awarded for the purchase of such product.
10 points = For social connecting via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Points are only awarded when a user has a friend click on the social share. Points are not awarded just for sharing.
25 points = Review a product on the MizunoUSA.com website (see “Reviewing a Product” below). A maximum of 75 points (25 points 3x a month) may be earned per 30 day period for reviewing products on MizunoUSA.com. You can also earn 25 points the first time you make purchase or sign up for email updates on MizunoUSA.com.
50 points = Earn 50 points by creating a Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program account.
100 points = When each referral (who is not already a MizunoUSA.com customer) makes his/her first purchase on MizunoUSA.com. Points are only rewarded when your friend signs up for email updates and makes his/her first purchase, provided that the purchase is made within 6 months of signing up.
From time to time, Mizuno USA, Inc. may temporarily amend the equations used to award loyalty rewards points, without notice to the users. A user only earns loyalty rewards points based on activity on and via the MizunoUSA.com website. Users may opt to purchase products without using their loyalty rewards points. Users will be able to check the amount of loyalty rewards points accumulated in their account by logging into the “My Account” section and viewing the dashboard. Users may not redeem or exchange accumulated loyalty rewards points for cash. Users may not give/donate/transfer/share their loyalty Points to another User’s account. Mizuno USA, Inc. specifically reserves the right to terminate, cancel, suspend and/or modify the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program, or any specific User's participation in the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program, if any fraud, virus or other technical problem corrupts the administration, security, safety or proper function of the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program, as determined by Mizuno USA, Inc. in its sole discretion. In addition, Mizuno USA, Inc. reserves the right to terminate, cancel, suspend and/or permanently ban any specific User's participation in the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program if Mizuno USA, Inc. suspects that such User is conducting fraudulent activity to acquire, accumulate or spend loyalty rewards points including, but not limited to, a User creating multiple Rewards accounts, false referrals, etc.
Reviewing a Product
Reviews of a Mizuno USA product on the MizunoUSA.com website will be reviewed for legitimacy and for language. As a result, it may take several (up to 30) days before reviews are posted on the MizunoUSA.com website and loyalty rewards points are credited to a User’s account.
Reviews that are posted will not be edited or changed for content, but they may be edited to correct spelling mistakes, type-o’s, glaring grammatical errors, etc. and/or to shorten the length. Mizuno USA, Inc. reserves the right to reject reviews that it deems (in its sole discretion) to be of no value, or in violation of the Mizuno USA Inc. and PowerReviews Terms of Service, and therefore no loyalty rewards points will be rewarded for such reviews.
Redeeming Loyalty Rewards Points
Loyalty rewards points may only be redeemed on MizunoUSA.com. Loyalty rewards points may only be redeemed for a discount off the purchase price of an item. Loyalty rewards points may not be redeemed for payment of taxes or shipping costs. Unless otherwise indicated by Mizuno USA, Inc., Loyalty rewards points may be redeemed in conjunction with discounts or offers granted by Mizuno USA, Inc. Mizuno USA, Inc. may limit the number of loyalty rewards points which may be redeemed at one time. Users must accumulate 100 loyalty rewards points before being eligible to redeem loyalty rewards points. Users with less than 100 loyalty rewards points will not be able to redeem those loyalty rewards points until they have acquired at least 100 loyalty rewards points. Users wishing to redeem loyalty rewards points will receive $5 off the purchase price of their order in redemption of 100 loyalty rewards points, which will thereby be deducted from the User's count of loyalty rewards points. The system will update the User’s remaining loyalty rewards points immediately after loyalty rewards points are redeemed. Loyalty rewards points cannot be applied to prior purchases or for the purchase of MizunoUSA.com eGift Cards. Mizuno USA, Inc. may determine, in its sole discretion, to restrict the redemption of loyalty rewards points (Mizuno MVP Rewards) with respect to certain products. Other restrictions may apply.
Expiration of Loyalty Rewards Points
Each Loyalty Point will expire one (1) year after being earned, if not redeemed prior to the expiration date. Mizuno USA, Inc. reserves the right to extend the expiration date, in its own discretion, on an individual user basis. Any Loyalty Points earned before May 1, 2017 (which therefore should expire on May 1, 2018), will be given a three (3) month grace period, such that they will expire on August 1, 2018.
Participation in the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program is a privilege granted to MizunoUSA.com users and as such can be suspended, revoked or terminated at any time by Mizuno USA, Inc. for any reason or for no reason. In the event of termination of your participation, all benefits including all accrued loyalty rewards points and other program benefits will automatically and immediately be forfeited.
Mizuno USA Inc. reserves the right to vary any or all of the terms of the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program, to amend these Terms of Service, or to terminate the Mizuno MVP Loyalty Rewards Program, at any time without notice and without further obligations to users, including, but not limited to, modifications which: a) govern loyalty rewards points earned on and after the date of the change; or b) change the value of already accumulated loyalty rewards points. Notice of any such changes, amendments or termination will be provided to users via message or email, or by being posted on the MizunoUSA.com website and will be effective immediately, unless otherwise stated in such notification.
