Members will receive rewards points (“Points”) on their Member account through Eligible Purchases (defined below) and participation in other special programs and promotional offers that may be announced by Company or its third-party partners from time to time. Additional terms, requirements and details for earning Points follow.
Eligible Purchases: Purchases of merchandise and/or services (after promotional offers have been applied, before taxes and shipping charges have been applied and minus returns, refunds or credit adjustments, rounded to the nearest dollar) made at any Store in the United States or online at a Website and shipping to the continental U.S. and U.S. P.O. Boxes (“Eligible Purchases”) count toward Member’s Point accrual and tier status. Eligible Purchases must be made while linked to Member’s J.Crew account.
As of the “Last Updated” date specified above, Members using their J.Crew Credit Card will receive two Points for each one dollar ($1 USD) of Eligible Purchases at Stores or Websites so long as their Credit Card account (“Account”) is in Good Standing. “Good Standing” means (1) your Account is open to new charges and not over your credit limit, (2) your Account is not more than 60 days past due or otherwise in default, (3) your Card is not flagged as lost, stolen, or fraudulent according to the Bank’s records, (4) your Account is not in a hardship or workout program, and (5) you are not subject to a credit counseling arrangement relating to your Account.

Members using any form of tender other than a J.Crew Credit Card will receive one Point for each one dollar ($1 USD) of Eligible Purchases at Stores or Websites (in all instances, number of points earned subject to change; check back here for details). Use of gift cards and Rewards will not result in Points.
Exclusions from Eligible Purchases: Points will not be awarded on unauthorized or fraudulent purchases. The amount of a purchase made with gift cards, Rewards, and/or free benefits under the Program as method of payment will not be applied to Member Point accrual or tier earnings. Points will not be awarded if, in Company’s reasonable opinion, the merchandise or services purchased will be used for resale or commercial use and any Points awarded on such purchases will be forfeited. Additional items may be excluded from Point, tier, and Rewards accumulation at the sole discretion of Company.

Point Balance: Members may view their Point balance at any time by visiting their Member account page.
Merchandise returns must be made in accordance with Company’s return policy available at J.Crew Returns & Exchanges or Factory Returns & Exchanges. Upon the return of an item accepted by Company, the spend amount and Points applied to Member account for the purchase will be deducted from that Member’s account as the Points are forfeited with the returned merchandise. For purchases made by redeeming Rewards, if the merchandise is returned, the Rewards will be forfeited.
Following initial tier placement, Program tier status is based on Member’s total spend on Eligible Purchases (which exclude gift card/Rewards) during the preceding calendar year, between January 1 and December 31. Following the conclusion of that qualifying calendar year, Member tier status will be valid for the next calendar benefit year after qualification. Annual tier assignments occur in January of each year. Members will be upgraded during the benefit year if their qualifying spend exceeds their tier threshold. Members should allow 30-45 days for purchases to process before Member is placed into a different loyalty tier. Any member with an open J.Crew Credit Card account will be automatically upgraded from the Green Access tier to Navy Access tier, regardless of the amount of total spend (no upgrades are given from Navy Access tier to Gold Access tiet; the J.Crew Credit Card must remain open during the applicable calendar year to keep the upgraded tier status), A summary of the tiers and benefits follows:

Points will accumulate toward rewards, the means by which will be described in these Terms and Conditions and/or related promotional offers. Earned Points are converted into promotional redemption rewards dollars (“Rewards”) as follows: 200 points = $5 in Rewards.

Member may redeem their Rewards when purchasing items and/or services either (1) at a Store by giving the Company associate your Member account email address and requesting redemption; (2) online at a Website by selecting the Rewards box at checkout; or (3) via the Contact Center for phone orders. If Member elects to redeem their Rewards, the value of the Rewards will be deducted from the total price of the Member’s purchase of items from a Store or a Website. The full value of the Rewards redeemed will be removed from your account even if the cart value is lower than the Rewards value. Points and Rewards will expire as set forth below.
Rewards are solely promotional and will not be paid out in cash or store credit. Company may, at any time and without notice, change the Points earning and redemptions procedures and offerings, including the conversion rate between Points and redemption dollars.
Rewards may only be redeemed once. In the event of a return of merchandise purchased using a reward, the reward will be forfeited.
Rewards may not be applied to the purchase of gift cards.
