A Loyalty Programme of The Warehouse Limited (we, us or our)

Trial phase terms

Our giveit loyalty programme (giveit) is currently in beta trial phase so that we can try out different concepts to find out what works best. During this beta trial phase, in addition to the general giveit terms and conditions set out below, the following terms and conditions will apply (and the beta trial terms will prevail over the general terms if there is any inconsistency):

  • giveit is available through The Warehouse app and in the following stores: Lower Hutt, Lyall Bay, Paraparaumu, Petone, Porirua, Upper Hutt, Wellington, Ashburton, Barrington, Belfast, Eastgate, Hornby, Northlands, Rangiora, Riccarton, Rolleston, South City, Timaru, Alexandra, Balclutha, Mosgiel, Oamaru, Queenstown, South Dunedin, Gore and Invercargill. Rewards and offers cannot be redeemed in any other The Warehouse stores and purchases made in any other The Warehouse store will not earn benefits and no giveback donation will be made in respect of such purchases. giveit is not available through The Warehouse website.

  • Membership is open only to customers based in the areas local to the participating stores listed above.

  • There are different types of giveit membership, each offering different benefits. We will, at our discretion, allocate you a particular type of membership. Some parts of the general terms and conditions set out below will not apply to your membership. For example, one type of membership will not earn ‘coins’ on purchases (a ‘type A’ membership) and to the extent that any of the general terms and conditions apply to coins or rewards obtained through exchanging coins, that term will not apply to members who have ‘type A’ membership. We will not be liable for any loss (including loss of opportunity) that may be caused by the type of membership that you are allocated.

  • We reserve the right to:

    a. change any aspect of the programme;

    b. correct any errors that we may become aware of; and/or

    c. cancel the beta trial and/or the giveit programme,

at any time and without liability to you.
