Reward Point Program Explanation & FAQ
What is the Reward Point Program?
To thank you all for your support and to offer future incentives to you we would like to give something back, this is why we have launched this great Reward Point Program.
Our Reward Point Program is as simple as it sounds. While shopping at Village Bears™ you will earn Shopping Points for the money you spend.
Once earned, you will be able to use those points to pay for future purchases at Village Bears™.
The Reward Point Program began on Monday 14 April, 2008. All purchases made after that date will earn points.
How does the Program work?
When an order is placed, the total amount of the order will be used to calculate the amount of points earned. These points are added to your Shopping Points account as pending points. All pending points are listed in your Side Cart and will stay there until approved/confirmed by Village Bears™. Once any pending points have been approved, they will be released and your account will be credited with the value of those points. Ready for you to spend on whatever you want.
Reward points will expire after two (2) years but can be accumulated during that time until you decide to use them.
You must login to your account in order to view the status of your points. During the checkout process you'll be able to reduce what you pay for your order with your points balance.
Points and Values
Currently, for every $1.00 spent at Village Bears™ you will earn 1.00 point. For example:
With Accumulated Points Earned = 150 Points
Product Cost: $250.00
Value of Points Earned: $3.00 and available to apply to your purchase.
YOU choose when to have Reward Points deducted from your total.
Redeeming Shopping Points
If you have a balance in your Shopping Points Account, you can use those points to pay for purchases made at Village Bears™. During the checkout process, on the same page that you select a payment method, there will be a box to select if you wish to use your points, as well as information on the total amount of points available.
