HOW THE CHERRY COMMUNITY PROGRAMME WORKS
Loyalty Discount Voucher
Members of the Cherry Community programme earn points for each purchase made in one of the Participating Stores or on www.letempsdescerises.com. These points are only earned if the member has clearly identified themselves at the time of purchase.
During each in-store or online purchase, the member gets one (1) point per euro spent on all items (excluding services: gift card, alterations, gift packaging). These points are credited immediately for a purchase in a physical store. They are credited at the time of dispatch of the order for an online purchase. Points are calculated based on the amount actually paid by the client (i.e. any discount deducted) for each receipt, rounded up to the nearest euro. In the event of a refund request, credit note or exchange of the products by the member, the points for the product in question will be deducted from the Client’s total points.
Validity of points
The points credited to the member’s account are valid for 12 months from their date of issue. Therefore, a member who has not used their points within 12 months will lose said points. The points lost cannot give rise to any refund, in any form whatsoever (cash, voucher, gift card, etc.).
The member may, at any time, take note of their points balance in their account:
- on their receipts;
- simply by requesting this information in one of the Participating Stores;
- by logging onto their Client Profile on the website www.letempsdescerises.com;
- By sending an email to customer services using the contact form:
Converting points into a Loyalty Discount Voucher
When the member reaches or exceeds 400 (four hundred) points, he/she is entitled to a Loyalty Discount Voucher worth 20 (twenty) euros.
The member will be informed on their receipt or by email/SMS.
The Loyalty Discount Voucher is valid for 3 (three) months from the date of issue. Its validity cannot be extended beyond that period. It can only be used once and for a minimum purchase of €50.
The Loyalty Discount Voucher cannot be refunded, in whole or in part, when used.
The Loyalty Discount Voucher cannot be used for a gift card purchase and cannot be combined with any other discount.
In the event of a return of the order for which a Loyalty Discount Voucher has been used, the Loyalty Discount Voucher used cannot be recredited to the Client Account. The refund is made for the amount paid after discount.
If the member has provided their date of birth when creating their account, they will receive a one-off discount of 10% on a receipt, in participating stores or on the website www.letempsdescerises.com, 31 days before and up to 31 days after the date of their birthday.
