TERMS & CONDITIONS
Loyalty Dot Bagels Terms and Conditions
Becoming a Member, what it means and managing your Membership
If you have not participated in the Previous Membership Scheme, you can become a member only by purchasing a product at a participate site or on click and collect (orderdotbagels.com). Only once you have purchased an item or placed an order will your membership become active. By purchasing in a participating site you will need to only provide your full name, email address and mobile number. By purchasing on the orderdotbagels.com, this information is required. You are required to be over the age of 16 at the time of registration to become a New Member. New Members are not entitled to a Card and can only use the App for the purposes of their Membership.
If you were a member of the Previous Membership Scheme (“Existing Member”), then your existing membership shall continue in full force and effect but in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
What Membership means
Both New Members and Existing Members who transfer to the Membership shall be “Members” for the purposes of these Terms and Conditions. New Members become Members when they have completed the registration process to join the Membership and been accepted as Members by us. The Existing Members’ membership shall transfer to the Membership and the introduction of the Membership shall be a continuation of the Existing Membership as amended by these Terms and Conditions.
Your Membership can only be registered in the name of an individual and an individual may only register one Membership.
Your Membership enables you to earn virtual points (“Points”) on the WebApp. Once you have earned enough Points (the “Threshold”), you will be able to redeem a voucher (“Voucher”) which can be redeemed in accordance with the ‘Redeeming Vouchers’ section below in participating Dot Bagels outlets in Great Britain.
You can also earn Points on purchases made from but you will not be able to redeem a Voucher from non-participating sites.
Managing your Membership
You shall be able to manage their Membership only at participating stores or filling out this form. Managing your Membership includes being able to update your personal information (including adding or amending your date of birth) and changing your communication preferences.
Existing points, earning Points and redeeming Vouchers
Under the Previous Membership Scheme, if you were an Existing Member you accumulated points (“Points”) from valid purchases which could be redeemed to make free purchases at participating Dot Bagels Sites. When an Existing Member is transferred to the Membership:
(i) All points will be transferred.
Points can only be earned in-store at the time of purchase and only if you show your WebApp at the point of purchase or (if applicable) you are located as a customer on our EPOS. Points can also be earned automatically when placing an order on orderdotbagels.com using the same email address and mobile number.
Points cannot be collected in relation to purchases made from our delivery partners.
You will earn one (1) Point for each:
(i) £1.00 purchase made in any transaction in store or on orderdotbagels.com;
For the avoidance of doubt, if a Member purchases multiple items in one transaction, the Member will receive the number of Points which corresponds with the total number of Eligible Items purchased. Earning of Points is not limited to one Point per transaction.
Points cannot be earned:
(i) on purchases of any items other than Eligible Items;
(ii) on using a Voucher; and
(iii) when purchasing gift cards.
If you have not used the App and/or (if applicable) your Card to earn Points and/or redeem Vouchers in the past twelve (12) months, all your Points which have not been converted to Vouchers will expire.
Once you have earned the number of Points equal to the Threshold, those Points will be automatically converted into a Voucher on the WebApp. Vouchers are valid for six months from the date on which they are issued. This code has to be shown at the point of sale to redeemed. Vouchers can be redeemed in store at the point of you redeeming. Voucher Codes will be available within 24 hours for purchases made on orderdotbagels.com
You can check the number of Points you have earned and the number of Vouchers you have at any participating Dot Bagels Site or by checking the WebApp.
Points and Vouchers have no cash value. Points and Vouchers can only be earned, held and redeemed as set out in these Terms and Conditions. Any Points or Vouchers obtained or used otherwise than in accordance with these Terms and Conditions will be invalid and cannot be redeemed.
Points are personal to you and cannot be pooled with Points earned by another Member and redeemed together.
In order to redeem a Voucher in-store, you will need to select “Click to Redeem” on your WebApp and show the code at the point of purchase using the WebApp and/or (if applicable) provide your WebApp and state that you would like to redeem your Voucher. When using orderdotbagels.com, you can redeem a Voucher by selecting it as a payment option. Multiple Vouchers (provided they are personal to you) cannot be redeemed in the same transaction (whether in-store or when using Orderdotbagles.com).
You may only redeem Vouchers against purchases of that corresponding voucher at participating Dot Bagels Sites in Great Britain or ordered using orderdotbagels.com. Vouchers cannot be redeemed in conjunction with other vouchers, discounts or promotions, unless the terms of the offer or promotion state otherwise and save as set out below.
Vouchers cannot be:
(i) used more than once;
(ii) redeemed against purchases of items other than its intending name and can only be used in participating Dot Bagels Sites;
(iii) redeemed against purchases of bundle deals;
(iv) redeemed against purchases made from non participating Dot Bagel Sites;
(v) used in a manner which would entitle a Member to a promotional offer. For example, if we had a buy one get one free offer, the use of the Voucher to purchase such a item would not entitle you to a second free item; or
(vi) used in conjunction with any discount or privilege card whether issued by us or by any third party.
Expiry and Cancellation
Your Membership does not have an expiry date. However, as stated above, your:
(i) Points will expire if you have not used the WebApp to earn Points and/or redeem Vouchers in the past twelve (12) months; and
(ii) Vouchers will expire six (6) months after they have been issued.
Where possible, we will try and notify you in advance that your Points and/or your Vouchers are about to expire but, in any case, it is your responsibility to make sure you use your Points and/or your Vouchers before they expire. Expired Points and Vouchers cannot be redeemed or reinstated to the App and/or your card (if applicable).
Your WebApp does not need a password. When signing in you will receive a code automatically to your registered email address. When you reach to 0 points, you will not be able to sign in.
If you cancel your Membership, you may choose to re-join the Membership. When restarting your Membership, your previously-earned Points and Vouchers will not continue to your new Membership.
