Thereafter, we will not accept any further requests for point redemptions.


We will not be liable for any delay or omission in the crediting of points to your account for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to technical faults, and inaccurate and/or incomplete information submitted by you.


Existing adidas account holders can start earning points from the day they have been migrated to the Club, and no prior transactions or interactions will be eligible for points. New members will start earning points from the date they register for the Club, and no prior transactions or interactions will be eligible for Points save that when you have provided your email address (for the purpose of being contacted in relation to Club membership) in our Stores whilst making a purchase and you subsequently join the Club, we shall award you the points for that purchase to your Club membership. Membership start dates for the Club may vary for members depending on their account type.


4.     EXPIRATION OF POINTS


The Club points will remain valid for 12 months. This period will always finish at the end of the month. For example, if you earned points on June 9, 2019, they will expire on June 30, 2020, unless adidas explicitly states otherwise. Points are not transferable between members. Points have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for cash.


5.     CLUB TIERS


Creators Club has four separate tiers. You can progress through the different tiers by earning points. 


Challenger is the entry-level tier for members with 0-999 points. You only need to register for the Club to be part of this tier and no purchase is required to be part of this tier.


Playmaker is tier 2 for members with 1,000 – 3,999 points. Game-Changer is tier 3 for members with 4,000 – 9,999 points. Icon is tier 4 for members with 10,000 points and above. 


You can climb to the higher tiers of Playmaker, Game-Changer and Icon by accumulating the required number of points mentioned above within 12 months of the end of the month of registration or current tier entry (the “Membership Year”).  Certain tier upgrades will take 30 days from the time you earn the qualifying points to take effect.


You may also be downgraded by one tier (or multiple tiers depending on the number of points) when you return an order/product and those points for such order/product are deducted from your account.


6.      TIER REQUALIFICATION


The requalification period starts on the date you reached a new tier and ends 12 months later, always at the end of the month. Points earned after your last tier entry will accumulate towards requalification points. The number of points required for you to requalify for your current tier is equal to the minimum point balance needed to enter that tier.  


After a tier upgrade your requalification points will be set to 0. 


If you do not earn enough points for your tier within the requalification period, you will be downgraded. This will take place after the last day of the requalification period, always at the end of the month. 


The corresponding tier to which you will be downgraded is the next lower tier, irrespective of the number of qualification points that you have accumulated by this date.


If you are downgraded, your new requalification period will start on the exact date of your downgrade and end 12 months later at the end of the month, unless you upgrade during this period. After a tier downgrade your requalification points will be set to 0. If you do not earn enough points for your tier within the requalification period, you will be downgraded. This will take place after the last day of the requalification period, always at the end of the month. 


7.     REWARDS


Entry and progress through each of the above-mentioned tiers will unlock a set of new rewards for members as set out here https://www.adidas.co.nz/creatorsclub.

 
You will have access to the rewards in your current tier and the tiers below them. For example, a Game-Changer will have access to the rewards from the Game-Changer tier as well as Playmaker and Challenger tiers (except for the lower tiers’ entry discount vouchers).
