Kobo Super Points Terms and Conditions
Kobo may amend, alter, withdraw, or terminate these Kobo Super Points Terms and Conditions (“Terms”), in whole or in part, at any time without notice. Your continued use of the Kobo eReading Service will be deemed acceptance of the revised Terms.
The Kobo Super Points membership program is exclusively offered to registered users of the Kobo eReading Service (each a “Member”) located in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom or United States. Following registration for the Kobo eReading Service, and upon a Member’s first purchase of selected eContent, Kobo Super Points will start to accrue. Past purchases will not accrue any Kobo Super Points, and only purchases following the official launch date of the Kobo Super Points program will accrue Kobo Super Points.
Kobo Super Points Accrual:
Members may earn Kobo Super points by purchasing select eContent from Kobo (“eContent”). For every $10CAD in Canada ($10AUD in Australia; $10NZD in New Zealand; $10USD in United States; £5 GBP in United Kingdom) spent on eContent before taxes, Kobo Super Points members will earn 100 Kobo Super Points. On occasion, Kobo may run promotions that alter the schedule of points earned.
Redemption of Kobo Super Points:
Kobo Super Points may be redeemed in exchange for select eContent from the Kobo eReading Service. Kobo Super Points may not be redeemed for devices or device accessories. Kobo Super Points may only be redeemed if: (i) they exist in a Member’s account prior to the time of a redemption transaction, and (ii) they are being redeemed by the registered owner of the Kobo Super Points account. Only one redemption is available per transaction. Kobo Super Points may not be combined with any other payment method to purchase eContent. Kobo Super Points cannot be transferred, purchased, or given by gift. Kobo Super Points are not convertible to cash or transferrable between accounts, and will become void if they are sold for cash or other consideration. Kobo Super Points do not have a monetary value and cannot under any circumstances form the basis of a monetary claim against Kobo.
Any Member’s use of the Kobo Super Points in violation of these Terms will be void, and in such circumstances Kobo may, in its sole discretion, cancel the Member’s Kobo Super Points membership.
eContent acquired by Members in exchange for Kobo Super Points cannot be returned.
Members who cancel a magazine subscription will receive a prorated refund in accordance with Kobo’s Terms of Sale, and points awarded as a result of the original magazine sale will be removed from the Customer’s account on a prorated basis.
Expiry of Kobo Super Points:
Should any Member not accumulate Kobo Super Points for 12 consecutive calendar months; or if a Member does not redeem their Kobo Super Points in exchange for eContent within 12 months of earning their last point, their membership will be deemed to be inactive; and all accumulated Kobo Super Points will be forfeited and the Kobo Super Points balance will be reduced to zero.
