PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION IN THE BIG REWARDS LOYALTY PROGRAM CAREFULLY. BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE.

- Membership Eligibility and Overview
1.1 The BIG Rewards Loyalty Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of Big Brands Inc. (“Big Brands”, “we” “our” or “us”). The program is available to our retail partners who purchase at our regular wholesale pricing and have no other programs, allowances or discounts either direct with Big Brands or through a corporate head office. Rewards are limited to one account per user and cannot be sold, combined or transferred to another individual or company account. Corporate head offices, associations, buying groups, or other groups may not participate in the program. Upon approval of creating a wholesale account, you will automatically be enrolled into the BIG Rewards Program. BIG Rewards is intended for business use only and we reserve the right to refuse to create an account for any reason.
2. Program Enrollment
2.1 Eligible individuals may only enroll in the Program by visiting www.bigbrandsinc.com (collectively, the “Site”) and following the Program prompts to register for an account.
2.2 You are required to provide your full name, email address, mailing address and other mandatory criteria in order to create a wholesale account and enroll in the program. You are solely responsible for maintaining accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site.
2.3 Only one Program account may be associated with a single user and a single email address. In the event of a dispute over ownership of the Program membership account, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Program Terms, the “authorized account holder” is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. If an authorized account holder is no longer responsible for buying for or on behalf of the company, the points cannot be transferred to the new account holder.
3. How the program Works
3.1 The Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing our products and for participating in certain brand experiences on the Site. You are able to earn points and reach Partnership tiers by making eligible purchases or taking certain other Program actions. Once you reach a certain partnership tier and/or earn a certain number of points, you may be eligible for certain benefits and rewards applicable to that tier and/or number of points, which benefits may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Eligible purchases and other opportunities to earn points will be posted on the Site or may be published through other media (e.g, in marketing communications, social media, etc.).Visit our FAQs to learn more about earning points and reaching Partnership tiers.
3.2 The Program is a tier-based program determined by the number of points a member has earned within a single year (Jan-Dec) on eligible purchases and through qualifying activities on our Site, beginning on the date when you enroll. There are 3 tiers with associated benefits:
Tier 1, BIG Business: 0 – 4,999 points
Tier 2, BIG Spender: 5,000 – 9,999 points
Tier 3, BIG Kahuna: 10,000+ points
When you join, you’ll automatically be placed in Tier 1, BIG Business and be eligible for all the benefits Tier 1 members receive. Once you earn at least 5,000 points in your first year, you’ll be automatically moved up to Tier 2, BIG Spender when yearly point totals are calculated in January. If you earn over 10,000 points in your first year, you’ll qualify for Tier 3, BIG Kahuna.
Once you are moved into a new Tier, you will enjoy the benefits of your new tier for the entire year. After that, you’ll need to earn enough points to qualify for that tier each year. For example, if you qualify for Tier 2, BIG Spender, during your first year, you will move to Tier 2 in January and will maintain BIG Spender status for the entire calendar year, But, if you earn less than 5,000 points during your second year, you’ll drop back down to Tier 1, BIG Business.
3.3 Members receive points for every 1 Canadian Dollar (CAD $1) spent on eligible purchases at the Site. Eligible purchases include regular priced merchandise and exclude e-Gift Cards and other free offers, applicable taxes, discounts, shipping and/or other excluded charges specified by us from time-to-time. All points earned from purchases on the Site are pending until your order ships and is paid in full, at which point they are fully matured and capable of redemption.
3.4 In addition to these purchases, you may also earn points for the following actions on the Site.
