All Program benefits, offers, rewards, and services are subject to availability. Except as otherwise expressly prohibited or limited by applicable laws, we may at any time amend, modify, supplement, or terminate the Program, the Program Terms and Conditions, the structure for earning rewards, or reward levels even though such changes may affect the value of rewards or the ability to obtain certain rewards. If notice of such action is required by law, it will be provided in accordance with such laws. If the Program is terminated, all unredeemed benefits will be forfeited without any obligation or liability and will not be honored upon termination or after the conclusion of the notice period, if any notice is required by law. Under no circumstances will we be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other cases beyond our reasonable control. We reserve the right to cancel or suspend your participation in the Program, Points or Rewards in the event of fraud, abuse of Rewards privileges, violation of these Program Terms and Conditions or any applicable laws, or at our discretion.

ELIGIBILITY & ENROLLMENT
Corporations, groups and associations are not eligible to participate in the Program.
Eligibility in the Program is available to any United States resident who is at least eighteen (18) years old and provides valid and accurate personal information when enrolling. There is no fee to enroll in the Program. In order to enroll, you are required to verify or update your contact information and provide your email address. By providing your email address, you are opting in to receive promotional emails about Rewards Club and Appleseed's. We may decline membership in the Program to any enrollee at our discretion and without notice.
Additionally, your email address is your unique Rewards Club identifier. To view your Rewards Club status and information, you must create a My Account online with a password, if you don’t have one. We also use your email to notify you of Program benefits, so you must ensure it is accurate and current.
The Program benefits and rewards are nontransferable. Upon the death of a member the member’s account will be closed and any benefits, points or rewards in the account will be forfeited.
See below for the qualifying purchase amount required to qualify for each level of rewards and benefits.
Upon reaching the Qualifying Purchase tier defined below, you will unlock the benefits and rewards based on the tier achieved. Qualifying Purchases (QP) made at Appleseed’s, Blair or Draper’s & Damon’s will be included in determining points for Appleseed's. A Qualifying Purchase consists of the price of the item less exclusions. QP excludes amounts for taxes, shipping and handling, discounts, gift card purchases, and other services as offered. Each QP is rounded up to the next dollar.
- Bronze - no minimum QP
- Silver - minimum total QP of $100
- Gold - minimum total QP of $250
- Platinum - minimum total QP of $500
How Tier is Determined:
FIRST YEAR: Upon enrollment, your tier will be based on the accumulation of Qualifying Purchases (QP) starting from the date of enrollment until day 365 (one year). As accumulated Qualifying Purchases reach the tier minimum required, your tier level will be updated.
SUBSEQUENT YEARS: You will enter the upcoming year at the tier attained at the end of the current year. Your Qualifying Purchase total will revert back to zero at the start of every year. For example, if at the end of year one, your QP equals $101, you will enter your second year in the Rewards Club at the Silver level. You will remain at that tier through the end of the second year, or until your Qualifying Purchases in the second year qualify for next higher tier (Gold) which would be $250.
For the start of the third year and every year following, your tier will be determined by the total Qualifying Purchases made by the end of the previous year. Your level could be lower, stay the same or increase based on the QP value. Your points value will not be affected by the tier evaluation.
Communications regarding the Program, your Program account, benefits, rewards and promotions will be sent via email. Please ensure we have the most recent and accurate email address so you can receive notices and updates. We are not responsible for communications, offers, or rewards sent to out-of-date or incorrect email addresses.
To receive points, you must provide your Rewards Club email for your online purchase or phone orders. The email must be valid and active in the Program.

- RETURNS: Points received for an item(s) that is returned will be deducted from your points balance upon processing the return. See examples below.
Order item, then return later: Receive points for the value of the item purchased, then upon processing the return, your points balance will be reduced by the value of the item returned.
Order several items, return one item: Receive points for the total value of the items purchased. Once the return item is processed, your points would be reduced by the value of that single item.
- EXCHANGES: Your points are initially reduced for the value of the item returned. New points will be earned for the value of the exchange item once it has shipped.
If the exchange item is of a lower dollar value than the original returned item, you will receive fewer points in the exchange.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION
To the extent permitted under applicable Law, you and OBSA Operating Company LLC hereby irrevocably agree to the following provisions:
In the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to any transaction or the breach, enforcement, interpretation or validity of the Program (“Dispute"), you agree to contact our Service Center at 1-800-458-6057.
If we are unable to respond or settle the Dispute you might have related to the Program within 60 days, then you may begin an arbitration proceeding as provided below. You agree this dispute resolution procedure is a condition a precedent which must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration.
In the event that our customer service team is unable to resolve the Dispute, by participating in the Program, you unconditionally agree that, except as set forth below, all Disputes between you and us (including any claim, controversy, or dispute between you and a third-party agent of OBSA Operating Company, LLC) will be resolved entirely through binding individual arbitration, rather than in court, including, without limitation, such Disputes relating to your participation in this Program and access or use of our Site and any products or services purchased through our Site. The sole exception to the foregoing requirement to arbitrate is that either party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of the other party’s intellectual property rights.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Program Terms and Conditions.
BY AGREEING TO THESE PROGRAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO SETTLE ANY DISPUTES WITH OBSA OPERATING COMPANY, LLC IN A COURT OF LAW OR BEFORE A JURY. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, no class actions, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. An arbitrator, however, can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages, and must follow these Program Terms and Conditions as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you may send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent: CT Corporation System Inc., 1010 Dale St N, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55117. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, specifically the “Consumer Arbitration Rules,” which may be found at www.adr.org, by referencing the “Rules & Forms” tab at the top of the page, by clicking on this link, or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees (not attorney fees) for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, OBSA Operating Company, LLC will not seek attorneys' fees and costs, those available under applicable law, in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
