You may redeem Tokens for a reward, providing that your member account is active and in good standing. Redeemed Token rewards are distributed in the form of digital VISA cards (“cards”) and will be emailed to the member requesting redemption. The card value is redeemable for goods and services purchased online and/or printed for use at VISA debit acceptance locations. Cash access of any kind is not included. The value of a reward cannot exceed your available Token account balance; however you may redeem an award of lesser value with the difference in Token amounts remaining in your account. Combining Token amounts from separate accounts to redeem awards is prohibited. Redeemed awards and Tokens are not transferrable for cash. Tokens have no cash value. Tokens are not considered to be property, and therefore cannot be sold, transferred, or assigned to another member or person without the permission of Campos. Token redemption requests will be administered at Campos’s earliest convenience. This may take up to 4 weeks after redemption request is submitted and received. Campos makes an effort to ensure that Tokens are distributed properly per activity, but you are responsible to ensure that you receive the proper amount of Tokens after each activity. Tokens remain in a member’s account until they are redeemed or forfeited. Questions should be emailed to [email protected].
