Hype LIMIT’D Loyalty Program Terms and Conditions
1. Membership –
2. Earning Points & Tiers –
2.1. Members will earn Points on all purchases they make at any of Hype DC Australia stores or online, where they identify themselves in making that purchase by providing their full name & email address in-store, or by logging into their Hype LIMIT’D Member account online or providing the email address at checkout associated with their account.
2.2. A Member will receive 1 Point for every $1 spent, rounded down to the nearest dollar ($). Points can only be added to the Hype LIMIT’D account used at the time the purchase was made.
2.3. All Points earnt will be valid for 15 months from the date of issue.
2.4. Points are converted to Rewards as outlined in Section 3, whilst your Hype LIMIT’D Spend determines the Tier Level you sit within as outlined below.
2.5. You attain status in the Hype LIMIT’D Tier Levels by purchasing from Hype DC retail stores in Australia and online at the Hype DC Australia website (www.hypedc.com/au).
2.6. This table sets out how much you need to spend at our Hype DC Australia retail stores and/or the Hype DC Australia website over a 365-day period (known as your Hype LIMIT’D Spend) to reach each Hype LIMIT’D Tier Level:
Required Hype LIMIT’D Spend over previous 365 days
$300 - $599.99
$600 or more
2.7. Reward redemption does not accumulate towards your Hype LIMIT’D Spend and therefore does not accumulate Points. For example, if you purchase an item valued at $100 and use $20 Hype LIMIT’D Reward value when making payment for that purchase, your Hype LIMIT’D Spend for that purchase is $80 and you will be assigned 80 Points to your Hype LIMIT’D Member account.
2.8. Our system will calculate your Hype DC LIMIT’D Spend daily. This means that, on any day, your Hype LIMIT’D Spend will include purchases made in-store for the last 365 days until the end of the previous day. For any online purchases placed with Hype DC Australia, your Hype LIMIT’D Spend is calculated on the date following when your purchase is shipped, not the date you place the order.
2.9. This means that if, for example, your parcel is not shipped until 2 days after you place your order, your purchase will not be included in your Hype LIMIT’D Spend until 3 days after you placed that order.
2.10. We will upgrade your Hype LIMIT’D Level as soon as our system shows that your Hype LIMIT’D Spend has reached the required level.
2.11. We will downgrade your Hype LIMIT’D Tier Level at the times set out in the paragraph below.
2.12. Your Hype LIMIT’D spend is calculated daily based on a rolling 365-day period, regardless of when you entered the specific tier, therefore you are required to maintain the spend level of the current tier within a rolling 365-day period in order to remain in that tier.
2.13. The date in which your Hype LIMIT’D Spend will drop below your tier level is called your Hype LIMIT’D Anniversary Date. If you have not maintained the amount of Hype LIMIT’D Spend required for your Hype LIMIT’D Level by your Hype LIMIT’D Anniversary Date, we will adjust your tier level accordingly. It is important that you keep track of your Hype LIMIT’D Anniversary Date if you want to maintain your Hype LIMIT’D Level.
2.14. Any cancellations, reversals or returns made on purchases are considered in the calculation of your Hype LIMIT’D Spend, which might result in you dropping below your tier level.
For example, if you have spent $350 in the last 365 days, you would sit in the Silver Level. If $100 of that purchase is cancelled, reversed or returned, your Hype LIMIT’D Spend will reflect that and recalculate to $250, thus meaning you will no longer qualify for the Silver Level and instead will be placed on the Bronze Level.
3. Rewards –
3.1. The Rewards you receive depend on whether you sit within the Bronze, Silver or Gold Tier Level and the number of Points you have earned. This table sets out the Reward value you will be issued, dependent on the Tier Level you sit within & your current Points Balance:
Points Balance to Reward Issued
Every 200 points earned = $20 Reward
Every 200 points earned = $30 Reward
Every 200 points earned = $40 Reward
3.2. On accumulating 200 Points, Hype LIMIT’D Members are automatically assigned a Reward to the value as detailed above for the Tier Level they sit within.
3.3. If you complete a single transaction that results in your Points balance reaching or exceeding multiples of the 200-point denomination, you will receive a single Reward of a higher value. For example, if you are on the Gold tier, and spend $400 in one transaction therefore earning 400 points, you will be issued 1 x $80 Reward, in place of 2 x $40 Rewards. If your transaction is placed online and the delivery of the order is split, this may not be the case & you may instead be issued your Reward(s) in $20 denominations.
3.4. You will receive a notification that a Reward has been applied to your Hype LIMIT’D account via email to the email address you provided us with when you joined the Program. All rewards issued from accumulating 200 points, will have a 5-month expiry valid from the date of issue.
3.5. To redeem a Reward, you must spend $100 or more in a single transaction either in-store or online, excluding shipping costs. Rewards cannot be used for payment of laybys or applied to prior purchases.
3.6. You may not use more than $100 of Rewards points per transaction.
3.7. Your Reward is not transferable, cannot be redeemed for cash, cannot used against prior purchases or used for the purchase of gift cards (physical or electronic).
Using your Reward in-store:
When shopping in-store, you must provide the email address you used when joining the Program in order for your Reward to be applied to your transaction by a Hype DC team member. Your reward can only be used on purchases valued at $100 or more.
Using your Reward online:
When shopping online, you must create an account using the email address supplied when joining the Program and be logged in to your account when checking out, in order for your Reward to be applied to your online transaction. Please note, after you have created your online account, you will be sent a verification email which you need to validate before the account gets created. If you do not validate your email, you will not be able to log into your online account or use your rewards.
Once you are logged in, at the checkout page, your Reward will appear with a prompt to ‘Apply your Reward’ which you must select in order for the Reward to be used as part of payment towards your transaction. Your reward will only apply to orders valued at $100 or more. If you do not select to apply your Reward to the transaction, it will remain unused on your Member account until it expires or is otherwise used.
3.8. Other than any Rewards issued to you, the Hype LIMIT’D Program may give you access to Member competitions and events or may include the allocation of surprise gifts and rewards to your account from time to time. At its sole discretion, we may provide access to these items to some or all Members of the Program. You will be notified via email should any of these apply to your account.
3.9. If you do not adhere to these Terms and Conditions, we reserve the right to cancel your Hype LIMIT’D account and any associated Rewards at any time.
3.10. We reserve the right to withdraw, cancel or vary the Rewards offered to you within the Program at its discretion, including Rewards awarded in error or earned fraudulently. We will make all reasonable efforts to communicate these changes to you via email or the Hype DC Australia website.
3.11. If you redeem a Reward for the purchase of multiple items, the application of that Reward’s value will be split proportionally over the products in the order based on the value of each item. For example, if you purchase a pair of shoes and a pack of socks, you might see the bulk of your $20 reward being applied to your shoes, based on the value of this item being higher.
3.12. If your order is cancelled or you choose to return or exchange a product, we will adjust your Member account so that the correct Reward amount is returned to you. The amount returned will be based on the portion of the reward that was applied to the specific product you are returning, as stated above.
3.13. To access your My Account and see your points balance and rewards you have been issued, use the same email address and create an account via https://www.hypedc.com/au/. We encourage all customers to log in when they visit us online. When shopping online, you must log in using the email address you used when signing up, either by logging in or adding it at the checkout in order to access and use any valid Rewards and see any information relating to your Hype LIMIT’D account.
3.14. You can only earn and redeem Rewards at Hype DC retail stores in Australia and on the Hype DC Australia website (www.hypedc.com/au/).
3.15. You can only redeem rewards from one (1) Hype LIMIT’D account per transaction.
3.16. Certain products and promotions may be excluded from the Program and this will be notified to you where it is applicable via the Terms and Conditions of the specific promotion.
4. Returns / Refunds –
4.1. If you moved tier levels when making a Purchase, because of your Hype LIMIT’D spend reaching or exceeding the spend level required for the next tier & subsequently that purchase is cancelled, reversed or a refund is given, the following paragraph explains how this will be handled:
- If your purchase is cancelled, reversed or returned, this will also be calculated against your Hype LIMIT’D spend, and could result in you dropping below your tier level.
- For example, if you have spent $400, which moves you from Bronze to Silver Level, but $200 of that purchase is cancelled, reversed or returned, your Hype LIMIT’D Spend will reflect that and recalculate to $200, thus meaning you will no longer qualify for the Silver Level and instead will be placed back onto the Bronze Level.
4.2. If you used a Reward when you made your purchase, the total amount you paid will have been reduced. Any refund owing will be processed based on the amount paid for the transaction after any Rewards were applied & the Reward will be returned to your Hype LIMIT’D account.
4.3. If you earnt Points when making your purchase, these Points will be taken off your Points balance when an eligible transaction has been cancelled, reversed or relates to a refund given.
4.4. If your purchase (either in part or in full) is cancelled, reversed or returned & Points were earnt, but the number of those Points did not reach the 200-point threshold, your Points balance will be deducted to the value of the item(s) being returned rounded down to the nearest whole number. For example, if you purchase a $150 item, you will earn 150 points. If your purchase is cancelled, reversed or returned, 150 points will be deducted from your Hype LIMIT’D account.
4.5. If you earnt Points when making a Purchase, and those points reached the 200-point threshold which results in a $20 Reward being granted & subsequently that purchase is cancelled, reversed or a refund is given, the following paragraph explains how this will be handled:
- If your purchase is cancelled, reversed or returned & for which 200 Points or more were earned, your Points balance will be deducted to the value of the item(s) being cancelled, reversed or returned (rounded down to the nearest whole number) but the Reward will remain on your Hype LIMIT’D account.
- For example, if you purchase two items, one for $100 and the other for $120, you will earn 220 points in total. As you have reached the 200-point threshold, you will receive a $20 Reward for that transaction, and 20 points will remain on your Hype LIMIT’D account. When cancelling, reversing or returning this purchase, you will retain the Reward issued, however, 220 points will be deducted from your Hype LIMIT’D account.
