There are 3 tiers in the Program: ‘Silver’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Platinum’ (each, a Tier). New Members are allocated Silver Tier status on the date that they register with the Program. Members are eligible to move up, and required to move down, Tiers based on their Eligible Purchases. Points will be awarded to Members based on their Tier as set out in the table immediately below:

MetricSilver Tier

        4.1.1.       a Silver Tier Member will earn 10 Points per dollar spent up to $549 in a year;

        4.1.2.      a Gold Tier Member will earn 12 Points per dollar spent from $550 to $1,099 in a year; and

In this scenario, the Loyalty Dollars voucher will not need to be activated by a Member in accordance with clause 5, and will be ready to use by the Member on the date of receipt. The Loyalty Dollars voucher expires 4 weeks from the date of receipt.
