PROGRAM YEAR

Upon the Effective Date of these Terms, a new “Program Year” will begin and it will end on December 31, 2017. Each subsequent Program Year will commence on January 1st and end on December 31st. Stage will issue a final $5 Payback Rewards coupon to all continuing Style Circle Members who have a positive balance in their account prior to the Effective Date. After the Effective Date, your Style Circle account balance will be zero. All future purchases will earn Payback Rewards according to the schedule provided below. If you are dissatisfied with the Program, you may cancel your Membership at any time.

 

MEMBERSHIP TIERS

  • Membership: New Members who are not Stage cardholders will be enrolled as Style Circle Rewards Members. Your membership will be upgraded if you later become a Stage cardholder.
  • Preferred Membership: New Stage cardholders will be enrolled as Style Circle Rewards Preferred Members.
  • Platinum Membership: Your Preferred membership will be upgraded to “Platinum” when your “Net Purchases” (as defined below) on your Stage credit card meet or exceed $750 in the current or immediately preceding Program Year. “Net Purchases” means the total amount of your purchases less and excluding: 1) the amount of any returns or refunds; 2) purchases from affiliates featured in Stage credit card statement insert offers; and 3) credit card fees, interest charges or fees for products that protect or insure the balances of your credit card.

    Once Platinum status has been obtained, it is valid for the balance of the Program Year in which it was obtained and the following Program Year. In order to retain Platinum status thereafter, your Net Purchases on the Stage credit card for the prior Program Year must meet or exceed $750. We may extend Platinum Membership to any segment of Program participants based on other criteria at any time in our sole discretion.

For example, Stage may award perks in connection with certain promotions or based upon a customers' engagement with Stage. Any such unexpected perks will be at our sole and absolute discretion.

 

EARNING PAYBACK REWARDS

Program members earn Payback Rewards for every dollar that they spend on Qualifying Purchases. “Qualifying Purchases” include all merchandise offered for sale in our stores and online (including cosmetics, Spot on Values items, items with prices ending in .8¢, sale, and clearance items). You will not earn Payback Rewards for “Non-Qualifying Transactions” which are purchases of: non-merchandise items such as gift cards, gift wrap, greeting cards, food, and bottled water; charitable donations; shipping fees; tuxedo rentals; magazine subscriptions; credit card payments; purchases from affiliates featured in Stage credit card statement insert offers; or sales tax. Payback Rewards are calculated according to the table below, based on the total dollar amount of Qualifying Purchases after all applicable discounts, offers, rewards, and coupons are applied, but before any applicable tax and/or shipping fees are added and will be rounded to the nearest dollar.

 

Payback Rewards will be valid starting the next day, for 30 days.

 

A single purchase transaction may qualify for up to $500 in Payback Rewards. When making a purchase that qualifies you for more than one Payback Reward, the reward will be issued in a single reward certificate up to $70, after which a separate reward certificate will be issued. The maximum total value of Payback Rewards that you can accumulate during a Program Year is $5,000.

 

Payback Rewards are earned at the following rates, depending on the form of payment used when making the Qualifying Purchase:

 
Program Form of Payment Accrual Reward Reward Expiration
Style Circle Rewards Cash, gift card, or third party credit card 1 point for every $1 spent $5 coupon for every 100 points earned 30 days
Stage credit card 2 points for every $1 spent
 

To earn Payback Rewards when making purchases at a participating Stage location, you must either (a) provide the phone number associated with your membership; or (b) swipe your Stage credit card at the register. Provision of this information is not required to complete the transaction, but it is necessary to earn Payback Rewards. To earn Payback Rewards for purchases made on www.stage.com and/or through our mobile app, you must be logged into your online account. When you earn Payback Rewards by making a purchase in store, the Payback Rewards that you earned for that transaction will be issued at the register immediately. If for any reason it is not possible to issue a Payback Reward at the register, we will send it to you via email. Payback Rewards earned by making online purchases or through our send from store program will post to your Program account approximately 24 hours following the shipment of your complete order. Purchases will be credited to only one Program account per transaction.

If a Qualifying Purchase item is returned, the points earned will be deducted from your Program account. This may result in a negative balance in your Program account, but any Payback Rewards that you received prior to the return will remain valid. This means that you may need to accrue more than 100 points before you receive your next Payback Reward, but you can still redeem any Payback Rewards that you have already received.

REDEMPTION OF PAYBACK REWARDS

Payback Rewards are stackable with all other discounts and coupons, including Club 40 and Fabulous and Military Discount. However, some other coupons and discounts may not be stackable with one another. Please check terms and conditions for other offers for the details specific to how those offers can be combined. When stacking with other offers, Payback Rewards will be applied prior to percent-off total purchase discounts.

 

Each Payback Rewards certificate will indicate its expiration date, and expired certificates will not be accepted. Payback Rewards cannot be redeemed to: (1) make a charitable donation; (2) as payment on any store credit card; (3) adjust the price on prior purchases; or (4) purchase gift cards. Payback Rewards are not transferable. Payback Rewards have no cash value and are not legal tender; no cash back will be provided. Other restrictions and exclusions may apply, check certificate for details.

Rewards from separate enrolled accounts cannot be combined onto one account. Your removal from the Program will result in a forfeiture of your existing points balance.

You may enroll in both the Style Circle Rewards and gRewards programs, however, your accounts for each program and points balances in each remain separate, and governed by the applicable program terms. To the extent allowed by applicable law, we may cancel any earned or outstanding Reward Certificates if we become insolvent, unable to pay our debts when due, file an action under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or have such an action filed against us.

ARBITRATION

YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES, ACTIONS, AND CLAIMS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO OR ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS AND/OR YOUR MEMBERSHIP IN THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION STAGE ADVERTISEMENTS AND DISCLOSURES, VOICE CALLS, TEXT MESSAGES AND EMAILS THAT STAGE SENDS TO YOU, OR RELATING TO THE COLLECTION OR USE OF ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU IN CONNECTION WITH ALERTS OR THIS WEBSITE) (COLLECTIVELY “CLAIMS”) WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW, AND LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT REGARD TO CHOICE OF LAW PRINCIPLES. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT CONSOLIDATE THE CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE MEMBER OR USER, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR CLASS PROCEEDING. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE ALL CLAIMS IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.

 

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT ACT AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS AGAINST STAGE IN ANY COURT, OR IN ARBITRATION, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIMS. YOUR CLAIMS SHALL NOT BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR DISPUTE INVOLVING ANY OTHER PARTY SUBJECT TO THESE TERMS, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED.

 

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's supplementary procedures for consumer-related disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. You agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence or in Harris County, Texas. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submission, or in person by following the AAA rules. In a dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in- person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could.

 

Stage will pay all administrative, hearing, and arbitrator’s fees and costs for the arbitration that are in excess of any filing fee that you would have been required to pay to file your Claims as a lawsuit in a state or federal court (whichever is greater). Unless the arbitrator awards otherwise, you will be responsible for paying the fees for your lawyers, witnesses (including experts), and all other expenses you incur. An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it apply only to that specific case. The arbitration award may be entered as a judgment only to enforce the award itself and cannot be used as evidence in any other case. To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by all parties.
Either party shall have the right to seek an injunction or other equitable relief related to infringement, violation, or a threat to infringe or violate the other party's patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret rights. The parties may seek such injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in Harris County, Texas. You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Harris County, Texas.

 

SURVIVAL; SEVERABILITY

The arbitration provision of these Terms will survive the termination of the relationship between you and Stage. To the maximum extent possible, if any provision of these Terms shall be interpreted is deemed by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful or unenforceable, it will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Additionally, any unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified so as to be rendered valid and enforceable while implementing, to the greatest extent possible, the original intent of such provision.
