The Rewards Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing Vape Merchant products and/or taking other Rewards Program -related actions. You may purchase Reward Program Vouchers (each a “Voucher”) by converting Vape Merchant Points online. You may earn Vape Merchant Points for dollars you spend on each qualifying transaction online at www.vapemerchant.nz and in a Vape Merchant store, excluding employee or other discounts, sales, subscription products and other items purchased with a gift card, or any other vouchers or coupons.

Only the Member paying for products in a qualifying purchase may accumulate Vape Merchant Points. If you return items from a qualifying purchase or obtain Vape Merchant Points through fraudulent or other activity that violates these Rewards Program Terms and Conditions, the appropriate number of Vape Merchant Points originally earned from such purchase or activity will be automatically deducted from your Member account balance. Vape Merchant Points and Vouchers do not constitute property of any Member or any other person and may not be gifted, sold, or otherwise transferred, other than by Vape Merchant or as otherwise expressly provided for in these Rewards Program Terms and Conditions, and any receipt or use of Vape Merchant Points or Vouchers in violation of these Rewards Program Terms and Conditions will render such Vape Merchant Points and Coupons void. Neither Accounts nor Vape Merchant Points or Vouchers may be shared or combined. Vape Merchant Points earned may not be eligible for redemption until twenty-four (24) hours after they are awarded.
Vape Merchant Points will expire six (6) months after they are earned. We reserve the right in our absolute and sole discretion to change the expiry date for Vape Merchant Points at any time without prior notice.

Your email must specify your name, address, phone number, and email address associated with your account, the date of the purchase or action, and the issue(s) you encountered. This email must be sent within thirty (30) days after the purchase or action took place. We are not responsible for late notifications regarding purchases or actions not being credited to a Member account.
You may purchase Vouchers by using Vape Merchant Points by signing into your account and converting your points into an online Voucher. Vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash. Vape Merchant Points used to purchase Coupons will be deducted from the total Vape Merchant Points available in your Member account. Vape Merchant Points from multiple accounts may not be aggregated unless authorised by Vape Merchant. Taxes on Vouchers may apply where required by law. You are solely responsible for any tax liability, including disclosure, related to your participation in the Rewards Program, including upon receipt of Vape Merchant Points or redemption of Vouchers.
We reserve the right, at any time in our sole discretion and without notice to you, to change the Coupons, how you earn Vape Merchant Points and purchase each Voucher, and how we evaluate and reward your eligible purchases and other Rewards Program actions.
