3 H&M LOYALTY PROGRAM IN UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

3.1 The Program is limited to purchases made online at ae.hm.com or in the app and in physical H&M-, and H&M HOME-stores, as applicable in the United Arab Emirates. You can only earn points by shopping as a logged in member or by performing other point awarding activities in the United Arab Emirates as communicated from time to time by Us. Please note that you will not earn points neither when purchasing gift cards, nor where you opt to donate at checkout.
3.2  The points you have earned are personal and cannot be transferred to another person or member.

3.3 The points earned on a purchase of an item will be deducted from My Account if you return the item.

3.4 To receive points you must provide the Member ID associated with your membership to the sales associate at a H&M or H&M HOME store, as applicable, or sign into My Account before making your purchase. You may view your balance and Member ID at any time by visiting My Account.

3.5 Please note that if you decide to use your AURA Account when purchasing an item instead of using your Membership, you will not receive Hello Member points.

4 POINTS, TIERS AND VOUCHERS

There are two levels of membership in the Program depending on the number of points that you accumulate in your Account: 
•    First tier: 0 points to 1499 points
•    Second tier: 1500 points

4.1 The points you earn count toward the second tier membership as well as toward bonus vouchers. For every AED 1 you spend, you will get 1 point.

4.2 The date when you join the Program and become a member will constitute the “Start Date” of each Membership Year. The “Membership Year” is the 12 months period following the Start Date of each year. The tier level of your membership is based on the points earned during the current or previous Membership Year whichever is the highest. If you are a new member, or do not have sufficient points to qualify you to the second membership tier level, your membership tier level will start at the first tier. If you reach the second tier during a Membership Year you will stay at the second membership tier level during the rest of the Membership Year and the following Membership Year. If during the Membership Year you do not accumulate sufficient points to qualify you to the second membership tier level, you will return to the first tier the following Membership Year.

4.3  After the end of each Membership Year all points counting towards the next membership tier level will expire. The points will be reset and start over at 0 at the beginning of each Membership Year.

4.4 Points counting towards vouchers are valid until the next Start Date.

4.5 When you have earned 500 points, a voucher of AED 10 will be issued in your app or on your H&M account page. You can use the voucher both at H&M and H&M HOME, in store and online. 

4.6 The Bonus Voucher will be issued between 0 to 15 days after you reach the bonus voucher threshold of 500 points. If a member returns items that were a part of a transaction which moved them over the voucher threshold, then the Bonus Voucher will be taken back, until you have reached the voucher threshold again. If a used that Bonus Voucher already and then returned the items, then the Bonus Voucher will not be reissued for the next threshold.

4.7 Vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash or used for purchases with a total value that is lower than the value of the voucher. The sum total of the purchase, after the voucher is applied, must exceed AED 1. Products that are not for sale in store or online (non-commercial goods, such as shopping bags in store) do not count towards this sum.

4.8 Each bonus voucher is only redeemable once and is applied on all articles in the order. The discount is split between the articles so that the discount share per article remains the same for all articles in the order. The respective reduction of the individual articles of a purchase remains, even if some articles of the purchase are returned. The discount advantage of the bonus checks is not redistributed to the remaining articles of the order in case of a return.

4.9 In the case of a return, the discount advantage received through the bonus voucher (value of the bonus voucher) expires and the Member will lose such discount advantage. Only the amount paid for the article will be refunded, not the savings from the bonus voucher. If you  use the bonus voucher  in a physical H&M- or H&M HOME-store, as applicable, the bonus voucher must be redeemed at the checkout. Printouts or screenshots of the bonus voucher will not be accepted.

4.10 The bonus vouchers cannot be used to purchase Gift Cards, or be applied to past purchases.

4.11 For the avoidance of doubt, points and/or vouchers have no cash value, cannot be redeemed for cash and are void if sold, purchased, bartered, or exchanged for cash or other consideration, or if received or used in violation of these Terms. 

4.12 Bonus Voucher can be re-issued by calling Customer Service only in two cases: a) if member cancels their online order within an hour and they have used a bonus voucher b) the online order was cancelled automatically by Alshaya. A member is then requested to call customer service and request a re-issuing of the Bonus Voucher.
