1. Who may use JoeShopping Rewards
JoeShopping Rewards is open to registered members of JoeShopping.com who are physically located in and legal residents of the fifty (50) United States (including District of Columbia) and Canada (excluding Quebec), and who are eighteen (18) years or older at the time of reward redemption.
JoeShopping, Inc. reserves the right to block access to JoeShopping Rewards and JoeShopping.com from IP addresses not located in the United States or Canada.
JoeShopping, Inc's employees/independent contractors and their immediate families (spouse, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and step-children) who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year are not eligible.
All JoeShopping Rewards offers require that you redeem a specified number of your spendable JoePoints, which are points earned by using JoeShopping.com while logged in to your account. Details on how to earn JoePoints can be found on the How to Earn JoePoints page. Some reward offers may have restrictions on who can redeem them, including country, age, etc. Many reward offers will also have requirements in addition to points. For example, you could be required to: select the merchant offering the reward as a "Favorite"; be a registered user of JoeShopping.com for a minimum number of days; log in to JoeShopping.com on a minimum number of days; have a minimum number of friends or followers; subscribe to a newsletter from the merchant offering the reward. In addition, some reward offers could be available to specific, pre-selected members only.
Individuals may have only one JoeShopping account. You may also have one or more accounts for business purposes but these accounts may not redeem rewards.
2. Spendable JoePoints vs. Total JoePoints
Your total JoePoints increases every time you earn points and generally do not decrease. Spendable JoePoints are the portion of your JoePoints which you have not spent on offers. Every time you redeem an offer, your spendable JoePoints decrease. Only your Spendable JoePoints can be redeemed for JoeShopping Rewards.
3. Redemption Limits
Each JoeShopping Rewards offer may be redeemed only once per member unless otherwise stated. Additionally, some offers may be redeemed only once per household. In any one calendar year, members will not be able to redeem $600 or more of Rewards having a stated value (gift certificates and products; not coupons) until they have submitted an IRS W-9 form and JoeShopping, Inc. has accepted this form.
