AWARDS BANK SYSTEM ACCOUNT HOLDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
IMPORTANT NOTICE: VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. THIS PROGRAM IS VALID
ONLY WHEN ALLOWED BY STATE LAW. CHECK WITH YOUR STATE BEFORE
REGISTERING FOR ANY REWARDS PROGRAM.
This is your Awards Bank System Account Holder Agreement. Please note: Although this is not a
cash reward, any form of remuneration or inducement may not be permitted by state law. Some
States do not allow any form compensation for premium finance business. Always check with your
state regulations before entering into any form of agreement. Please read this agreement carefully
and keep it for your records. All transactions made with your Account are subject to the terms of this
Agreement and are also subject to the terms that govern the rewards program(s) associated with
your Account. By accepting and retaining the benefits of your Account, you agree to all terms and
conditions in this Agreement, as well as future terms and conditions and program/service changes.
Points earned are a maximum of one cent per hundred dollars financed and are subject to be
rescinded at any time at our discretion. Due to the retail valuation of particular prizes actual
point value will be considerably less than one cent. Notwithstanding, any “points” program
could be construed as a form of inducement under state law.
Certain states do not permit
any form of remuneration. Check with your state regulators before applying.
All earnings in your Account are shown in points. All transactions made through your
Account and the number of points available to you will appear online and/or via a periodic
Transaction Summary. Any dispute about point amounts posted to your account must be
raised within 60 days following receipt of your Transaction Summary. Procedures relating to
and the format of Transaction Summaries may be modified at any time, without notice. We
reserve the right to make corrections or adjustments to the number of points posted to your
Account. Your points provide you with the opportunity to obtain specific rewards. Points are
deducted from your Account when you order a reward, not at the time of shipment or
delivery. Points have no cash surrender value. Points may be used by the designated
account holder only and are non-transferable.
You may return a reward for a point refund to your Account, subject to compliance with all
applicable requirements for returns, but you may not return any goods or services obtained
with points for a cash refund.
We reserve the right to change elements or terms and conditions of any rewards program,
including, but not limited to, reward offerings, point expiration, and transaction summaries at
any time without notice. If a reward offering is discontinued, reasonable efforts will be made
to offer a substitute of equivalent quality. All reward offerings are subject to availability. We
may make model substitutions of equivalent value without advance notice when necessary.
Reward offers are void where prohibited by law. Every effort has been made to ensure
that information regarding products and services offered by participating reward suppliers is
accurate, but we are not responsible for any errors or omissions in such information.
If the point value of a reward you wish to acquire is greater than the point amount available in
your Account, the difference may be paid for with money order, a personal credit card or
check, subject to any limitations that may be specified on the program rules for the program
in which your points have been earned.

you; however, we reserve the right to charge a service fee for each additional replacement
number requested. Your account will be deactivated within 48 hours following receipt of
notification of loss or theft. If you believe someone has used, or may use, your Account
Number without your permission notify us at once. If someone obtains access to your
Account Number and uses your points without your permission, we are not responsible for
replacing those points. If you report a lost or stolen Account Number, you may be required to
provide additional information regarding the circumstances of the loss or theft. Do not
attempt to use an Account Number after you have notified us that it is lost or may have been
misappropriated, even if you find it, since the transaction will be considered unauthorized
