Refer-a-Friend Program Terms and Conditions
A Qualified Referral is defined as a purchase made at www.readers.com by a person (a "Referred Customer") who arrives to our website by clicking your Refer-a-Friend program link. Referrals will not be accepted over the phone or in person. You are limited to one Qualified Referral for each Referred Customer; in other words, additional/repeat purchases made by a Referred Customer are not counted as additional Qualified Referrals.
The Referred Customer and the Referrer cannot be the same person. The Referred Customer must have a different email address, along with different shipping and billing information from the Referrer.
Rewards are payable in increments of 30% off coupons unless explicitly noted. Referral payments are issued 2 days after the date of the Referred Customer's first order.The maximum Qualified Referrals earned per calendar year may be no more than 30 Qualified Referrals. As a Referrer, you are responsible for any and all tax liability resulting from Referral Rewards. All coupons are non-transferrable, are not redeemable for cash, and expire one year after issuance.
Eligibility is limited to individuals only. Readers.com's Refer-a-Friend Program cannot be used by businesses or corporations for affiliate lead generation as determined in Readers.com's sole discretion.
You must comply with all up-to-date "SPAM" laws. For example, emails must be created and distributed in a personal manner and bulk email distribution is strongly discouraged. Any distribution of your referral link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or "spam" under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination of your account and exclusion from Readers.com's Refer-a-Friend program.
Right to Close Accounts
Readers.com reserves the right to close the account(s) of any Referrer and/or Referred Customer for any reason or no reason at all. Readers.com also reserves the right to void coupon codes or reward balances and request full non-discounted payment of orders if the Referrer and/or Referred Customer attempts to use the Readers.com Refer-a-Friend program in a questionable manner or breaches any of these Terms and Conditions or is in violation of any law, statute or governmental regulation.
Right to Cancel Program or Change Terms
Readers.com reserves the right to cancel the Refer-a-Friend Program or to change these Terms and Conditions at any time in its sole discretion. Any unclaimed referral rewards will be forfeited at that time.
