KloseBuy Rewards Overview: As a Member of KloseBuy, You earn points ("Rewards") by joining the Program, favoring merchants, 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.
How to Join: You may register to become a KloseBuy Member either through the KloseBuy Website or through the KloseBuy Mobile Apps. Once You have created Your account, You will earn points for becoming a Member, and continue to earn points through the Program. You will be able to access from Your My Points page Your point balance and view Your history of point rewards and redemptions.
Points Certificates contain a unique code and must be recorded to Your points balance before the expiration period or the value will expire. No change/currency will be given for any portion of a Points Certificate redemption. If lost or stolen, the code on Your Points Certificate may be used by anyone, and You are solely responsible for protecting it from unauthorized use. If the unique code for the Points Certificate is used in a manner that was not authorized by You, or is lost or stolen, KloseBuy and/or the KloseBuy merchants will not replace the Points Certificate.
Points have no cash value. Points are personal to You and are not transferrable. Points may only be redeemed in the Rewards Catalog located either at www.KloseBuy.com or within the mobile app.
KloseBuy 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.
