This agreement (“Agreement”) is made between Trilegiant Corporation ("Trilegiant"), a Delaware corporation with offices at 6 High Ridge Park, Stamford, CT 06905, providing a membership program called Shoppers Advantage® (“Shoppers Advantage” or the “Program”), and the person specified on the accompanying Shoppers Advantage membership card (referred to herein as “you”). By enrolling in the Program, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
1. SERVICE –
(a) The service which Trilegiant shall provide to you during the term of your membership shall include: (i) computer access to product information and prices and to order merchandise through Shoppers Advantage's independent vendors; (ii) automatic extension of the manufacturer's U.S. warranty to two years from the original purchase date on eligible products purchased through the shopping service; (iii) Shoppers Advantage Cash on qualified merchandise purchased through Shoppers Advantage (details on awards, exclusions, redemption, and refunds of Shoppers Advantage Cash are included in the membership welcome kit and are incorporated herein by reference); and (iv) Low Price Guarantee (as described herein). (b) Low Price Guarantee: If you see a dated, printed advertisement from an authorized dealer showing a lower price for exactly the same item you purchased from Shoppers Advantage within sixty (60) days of your purchase (fifteen (15) days for computer products and digital cameras), you are entitled to a refund for the difference in price plus 100% of such difference. (Example: If you buy a product for $100 and find the product elsewhere for $90, Shoppers Advantage will give you a credit for $20.00). Also, if we lower our own prices within sixty (60) days of your purchase (fifteen (15) days for computer products and digital cameras), on exactly the same item that you purchased from Shoppers Advantage, we will refund the difference between the old and new prices. This Low Price Guarantee is not insurance and this description is not an insurance policy or contract for insurance. The following additional terms apply for members joining after August 1, 2003: Low Price Guarantee claims for camcorders and video games must be made within fifteen (15) days of purchase. Refunds are limited to a maximum of three (3) claims on any one type of item per member per twelve-month period and up to a maximum of $1,000 per member per twelve-month period. "Exactly the same" means an item with the same model number, manufacturer's U.S. warranty and accessories as the item you purchased from Shoppers Advantage. Pagers, cellular phones, motorized vehicles, demonstration models, items purchased at limited sales, one-of-a-kind items, food products and collectible items are excluded. A dated print ad from a retailer, URL, or printout must be submitted. Only these items will be considered as proof for the refund. Calculation of the amount of your credit will not take into account sales tax and shipping. Please allow two (2) weeks for a response to your claim. Further details on obtaining a refund are included in the membership welcome kit. (c) Member savings are determined by calculating the difference in price when shopping as a member versus a non-member. We compute member savings by subtracting member price from non-member price. The pricing difference is the savings you will receive by shopping as a member. (d) Cancellation and Return of Orders: (i) Upon request to cancel a merchandise order on your behalf, Shoppers Advantage will promptly refund any money deposited with Shoppers Advantage for that order, provided that the product ordered: has not yet been received by the vendor; has not yet been shipped to you by the vendor; or the service ordered has not yet been performed for you. In the event that the order has been processed, the shipment has been sent or performance has occurred, Shoppers Advantage will use its reasonable efforts to seek a refund from the vendor involved on a case-by-case basis. Products will be deemed acceptable by you unless Shoppers Advantage is notified of your dissatisfaction with the delivered product within sixty (60) working days of the time you receive it. Notebook and handheld computers, non-cellular telephones and digital cameras must be returned within fifteen (15) days of purchase. Members must call a Shoppers Advantage customer satisfaction representative at 1-800-562-8888 to receive return instructions. Unauthorized or late returns may be subject to a re-stocking charge up to but not to exceed 15% of the product cost. To avoid a re-stocking charge, please return your merchandise in the original box and packing, including all accessories and the owner's manual. Do not destroy or discard packaging for thirty (30) days. The value of missing accessories will be deducted from the credited amount of a return. Personalized items, opened personal care, household items, pierced earrings, computer software items, computer disks, printer cartridges, phone cards and special order merchandise are not returnable. Certain merchandise may require manufacturer’s service first before the return is allowed. (e) Trilegiant reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any membership policies at any time without notice. Trilegiant may cancel this Agreement upon written notice and refund of the current-term's membership fee unless the reason for such termination is your failure to pay or your misuse of Shoppers Advantage in which event no such refund will be made to you. (f) We reserve the right to limit sales and benefits (including Low Price Guarantee) to resellers.
2. WHO MAY USE – You agree that you will use Shoppers Advantage’s services only for your own behalf and for the members of your immediate family residing in your household.

6. ARBITRATION - You and Trilegiant agree that any claim or dispute ("Claim") between us shall, at the election of either of us, be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its rules for consumer arbitrations. It is the parties' intent that this arbitration provision be construed broadly, including that this arbitration agreement include any Claims against Trilegiant as well as its corporate affiliates. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Trilegiant are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. At your request, we will pay the first $125 of your arbitration fees. You will be solely responsible for your arbitration fees and costs in excess of $125. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual Claim. YOU AND TRILEGIANT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Trilegiant agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's Claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If the specific provision in the preceding sentence is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision in this Section 6 shall be null and void. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. ("FAA"). Judgment upon any arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall follow substantive law to the extent consistent with the FAA and shall honor any claims or privileges recognized by law. The terms of this section shall survive any termination, cancellation or expiration of this Agreement.
