Global Citizen Rewards Terms and Conditions
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN
VOID WHERE RESTRICTED OR PROHIBITED BY LAW.
The Global Citizen Rewards Program (the “Rewards Program”) offers Members the opportunity to earn points and use them to (i) claim instant rewards and (ii) enter Prize Draws (as defined below).
1. Earning Points for Instant Rewards and Prize Draws: Members can earn points by taking action at www.globalcitizen.org, and can achieve various member reward levels based on the number of points accrued (the “Member Reward Levels”). For information on member reward levels, visit the FAQ pages available on at www.globalcitizen.org (the “Website”). There is no purchase or fee required to register as a member or earn points in any circumstances. To participate in the Rewards Program, you must be a registered member at www.globalcitizen.org (a “Member”). If you are not a registered Member, go to www.globalcitizen.org and follow the instructions to register and create a User ID and password. Upon registration, a Member will receive an instant reward. Only one instant reward is issued per Member upon registration. Once you have registered, you will have the opportunity to earn points by participating in various activities at www.globalcitizen.org to take action. Examples of actions include, but are not limited to, signing up with Global Citizen, tweeting, sending an email or calling a decision maker, signing a petition, uploading a photo or video to Instagram or Twitter, taking a quiz on a Global Citizen issue, and checking in at a designated location to support a Global Citizen campaign. Point values can range from 1-50 or more and are subject to change, at Sponsor's sole discretion, at any time, with or without notice. Actions may vary and are constantly updated. All actions have no associated costs (“free” to complete), and will be featured on the home page, issue pages or reward pages. The points accrued for each action taken may vary per action. Points cannot be combined or transferred between Members. Points and Rewards cannot be redeemed for cash or credit.
2. General Terms – Instant Rewards: At various times between 12:00:00 AM GMT on 1 January 2023 and 11:59:59 PM GMT on 31 December 2023 (the “Rewards Program Period”), Members will be offered instant rewards that Members can redeem using their points. These instant rewards can include prizes or the opportunity to have a corporate partner take a charitable action such as making a donation to a cause that will be specified (such prizes or donations collectively, “Rewards”). Rewards may also include prizes such as tickets to a Global Citizen Reward event, select merchandise and gift cards to a retailer or restaurant, or access to exclusive content or a select event and will be provided by third-party sponsors. Members may only claim Rewards at the time they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no guarantee that a Reward a Member sees will still be available when the Member seeks to claim the Reward. To qualify, a Member must have acquired the number of points and achieved the Member Rewards level required for the applicable Reward. Available Rewards and the number of points required to claim each Reward will be made available on the Website. Not all Rewards will be made available to all Members, and some Rewards may be limited in quantity and availability. Rewards are nontransferable and may only be issued to the Member redeeming his or her points where applicable. Points that have been redeemed for Rewards cannot be returned to the Member. The instant rewards program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as Sponsor decides to terminate the program, at any time, with or without notice. Immediately upon termination of the instant rewards program, all points will be irredeemable and have no further value for purposes of the instant rewards program. The Global Citizen platform is the official timekeeper for the instant rewards program and will run on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
3. General Terms – Prize Draws (the “Promotion”):
