Rewards1 Terms of Service

1. Description

Rewards1.com ("R1") is a free rewards service ("Service") which awards points ("Points") or cash ("Cash") to members for the successful completion of earning opportunties, or incentives ("Incentives").  Incentives are provided by 3rd party sponsors ("Sponsors") and include promotional offers, paid surveys, completing tasks, web searches, shopping online, clicking ads, watching videos and listening to radio.

2. Credits

Points or Cash is credited to members' accounts only after R1 receives confirmation via postback from Sponsors that all Incentive requirements have been met. Confirmation is typically received within minutes, but may take days due to infrastructure variations between Sponsors.

R1 reserves the right to hold funds and/or reward requests for up to NET75 (75 days past the end of current month), ie. the period which Sponsors will typically issue reversals ("Reversals", "Reversal") by. Holds typically apply to high paying Incentives and to accounts which exhibit unusual or suspicious behaviour.

3. Reversals

A Reversal is a reverse credit, issued from Sponsors indicating a Terms of Service breach, typical reasons include: duplicate user, early cancellation, misrepresentation, bad or unusable user data, or fraud. Funds credited from the reversed Incentive will be debited from your account, and excessive or fraudulent Reversals will result in membership ban.

Using a pre-paid credit card as payment for most Incentives will cause it to reverse, and will usually be stated by the Sponsor and the Incentive.

4. Rewards

Members may exchange Points for any reward found under the Redeem menu, and cash may be redeemed via PayPal or cheque minus Paypal transfer or postage fees respectively. Reward requests require a minimum of 500 Points, or $5 Cash, and usually take 0-3 days to process.

Members may also shop from most popular online vendors and use Points to pay for a custom reward, at the rate of 1 Point to $0.01 USD. Members may shop in any currency and are responsible for all applicable costs including shipping, taxes, tariffs and currency exchange fees. Age restricted reward requests will not be honoured unless member explicitly states they're of age to legally purchase, own and use the item requested, and requests for illegal or dangerous items will be rejected. Custom rewards may take up to 5 days to process.

R1 is not responsible for game codes, gift cards, game currency or custom rewards which are lost, damaged, provided bad or otherwise mishandled by vendors. All fulfilled rewards are final and non-refundable.

Points and Cash have no intrinsic or monetary value and are redeemable under R1's sole and absolute discretion.

5. Affiliate Program

Members who refer new users to R1 (with their referral link) are considered affiliates and earn revernue-share commission based off their referral's earnings. Referral commissions are paid as Cash and remain in effect for the lifetime of the referred member.

Reversals from referred members will also reverse the corresponding commission earned from the reversed lead.

Encouraging, poaching, incentivizing or otherwise getting existing members not referred by you to re-signup as your referral is not tolerated and will result in Affiliate Program or membership ban.

Affiliates are expected to operate with integrity and adhere to general marketing best practices, standards and guidelines.  Affiliates must also observe any rules and regulations set forth by our Sponsors governing the marketing, methodology, dessimination or acquisition techniques of sub-affiliates.

6. Services

A. Points Transfer

Members may transfer Points to another member, provided both are at least rank 2 (Junior) or higher.  A fee of 3% will be applied to the recipient, and all Points transfers are final.

B. Trade Center

Members may create trades in Trade Center, which is a system designed to secure the exchange of Points with goods or services between members. Trading takes place with a lock-step confirmation system between buyer and seller, and funds are held in escrow pending buyer satisfaction.

Once a trade is agreed to, seller has until the trade deadline to deliver the item(s) of trade to the buyer. Buyers may conclude the trade at anytime, thus releasing funds to seller, and after deadline have the option to enter the trade into dispute. Five (5) days after deadline, in the event of a non-responsive buyer (ie. failure to either conclude or dispute the trade), Points will default to the seller.

In the event of a dispute staff will ask both parties for evidence, so document and submit any and all related and relevant information or detail supporting your claim. Any and all decisions rendered by staff are final. Disputes are subject to a 10% service charge, the Points balance of which will be awarded in favour of the winning party.

All trades are subject to 3%, the standard Points transfer rate, and only members of rank 2 or higher may create or receive trades.

C. Cash to Points

Cash may be converted to Points at the rate of $0.01 Cash to 1 Point.  All conversions are final.

Due to Sponsor restrictions, Points cannot be converted to Cash.
