General Information; Definitions;
Style Points Rewards Program (the “Program”) allows you to earn points (“Points”)
on the dollars you spend as described in Section 3 below, using your metrostyle
Account (your “Account”). You can then redeem those Points for metrostyle certificates
valid at METROSTYLE.com, CHADWICKS.com,
or by placing an order with Metrostyle OR CHADWICKS catalogs using the toll-free
Telephone numbers listed on their catalogs the “Rewards
Certificates”), as described in Section 4 below.
These Program Terms are separate and
independent from your metrostyle credit card Account Agreement (your “Agreement”),
which governs the use of your metrostyle credit card (your “Card”). In the
event of any conflict between these Program Terms and your Agreement, these
Terms will control in any matter relating to the Program.
In these Program Terms, “you” and “your”
mean the Account holder. “We,” “our,” and “us” mean metrostyle. “Bank” means Comenity
Bank. Other capitalized words not specifically defined have the same meaning as
in your Agreement. The Program is not available to the extent it is prohibited
by federal, state, or local law. These Program Terms contain the entire
understanding between you and us regarding the Program. FROM TIME TO TIME WE
MAY CHANGE THE PROGRAM AND THESE PROGRAM TERMS IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE
LAW, INCLUDING ANY APPLICABLE NOTICE REQUIREMENTS.
Eligibility.You will be automatically enrolled in the
Program when the Bank opens your Account. To remain eligible to accumulate
Points under the Program, your Account must be in Good Standing. “Good
Standing” means your Account is (1) open to new charges, (2) not
more than 60 days past due under the Agreement, and (3) not flagged as lost,
stolen, or fraudulent according to Bank’s written or electronic records. Membership
will be renewed automatically each year as long as your Account is in Good
Standing and we continue to offer the Program, unless you notify us of
cancellation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Program Terms,
we reserve the right to approve, deny or revoke membership in the Program to
any individual at any time for any reason whatsoever.
Earning Points. You will earn Points for Net New
Purchases on your Account so long as your Account is in Good Standing. You will
Points for each $1.00 of Net New Purchases.
“Net New Purchases” means purchases of goods and/or services
made by you or any Authorized User on your Account minus any returns, refunds
or credit adjustments, rounded to the nearest dollar. Points awarded for
purchases that are returned or refunded or otherwise adjusted will be deducted
from your Point total. Such deductions may result in a negative Points balance,
in which case, any Points you earn will be applied to reduce that balance and
you will not be able to redeem Points until you again have a positive balance.
Points are not earned on: unauthorized or
fraudulent charges, purchases made by or for a business or for a business
purpose, or interest or fees.
We may from time to time make special
offers for you to earn additional Points on specific purchases. The terms and
conditions for such special offers (such as which purchases qualify and the
number of additional Points you may earn) will be disclosed at the time of
offer. Please check those terms and conditions carefully, as there may be
important conditions or limitations (such as blackout periods, point
limitations or exclusions). Availability of any special offer is subject to
change without notice.
Points will be posted to your Points
balance on your metrostyle credit card billing statement on the same day that
the purchase is posted to your Account and will be available when you receive
your Rewards Certificate in your billing statement. We reserve the right to
verify and adjust Points at any time prior to or following posting or
redemption. There is no maximum number of Points that may be earned per billing
cycle or year.
Redeeming Points for Rewards Certificates.Rewards Certificates are
automatically sent to you via your metrostyle credit card billing statement
when they are earned. Rewards Certificates earned at metrostyle can be redeemed
at either metrostyle or Chadwicks (and vice versa).
5 Points = $1
metrostyle Style Points in Rewards Certificates
Points will be redeemed on a “first in,
first out” basis, such that the first Points earned will be the first Points
redeemed. Once a redemption order is placed, your Points balance will be
reduced by the number of Points used to obtain the Rewards Certificate(s). In
the event a return, refund, or credit adjustment results in insufficient Points
for the Rewards Certificate(s) ordered, the order may not be fulfilled. If the
Rewards Certificate order is fulfilled and we later discover that you did not
have sufficient Points for the Rewards Certificate(s) in your Points balance, in
addition to any other actions we may take, future Points earnings will be
applied to the Rewards Certificate(s) until such time as sufficient Points are
earned to cover the redemption of the Rewards Certificate(s). You will not be
able to redeem Points until you again have a positive balance. Points you earn
may not be combined with Points earned by anyone else for purposes of receiving
Rewards Certificates. Points earned have no cash value, and cannot be purchased,
sold or redeemed for cash. Points may not be used as payment of any outstanding
obligations to the Bank or its affiliates.
You may only redeem Points if your
Account is Current. If your Account is not Current, you will not be eligible to
redeem them until the end of the billing period in which your Account is once
again Current. “Current” means your Account (1) is open to new charges,
(2) is not delinquent or in default under the Agreement, (3) does not have a
balance over the assigned credit limit, and (4) is not flagged as lost, stolen,
or fraudulent according to Bank’s written or electronic records.
Point Expiration and Forfeiture.Points not redeemed will be carried over
to the following statement period. However, Points will
expire 12 months after the date that they are earned. Once Points expire,
they may not be redeemed. You will also forfeit your unused and unexpired
Points if you attempt to violate the prohibitions on the transfer of Points, if
you file for bankruptcy, or if the Bank or you close your Account for any
reason. You will not be entitled to and will not receive any compensation from
us for your Points that expire or are forfeited.

rights that apply when you are dissatisfied with your credit card purchases,
which rights are set forth in your Agreement, do not apply to the Program. If you believe that a purchase made on
your Account should have resulted in the addition of Points to your accumulated
Points balance, and such Points are not reflected in the accumulated Points
balance within forty-five (45) days of the date on which the purchase posted to
your Account balance (“Points Dispute”), notify us immediately. We will use
reasonable efforts to investigate your Points Dispute so long as you notify us
of such dispute within ninety (90) days of the posting date of such purchase.

waived your right to make a Points Dispute with respect to that purchase. In
order for us to undertake an investigation of your Points Dispute, we may
