Terms and Conditions of Talbots Classic Awards

The Talbots Classic Awards program is offered entirely at the discretion of Talbots. Talbots may, at its sole discretion, cancel, alter, limit, or modify program rules, regulations, Credit earning structure, Rewards, Reward levels, or any other feature of the program at any time, without notice. In accumulating points, members may not rely on the continued availability of any reward or reward level and they have no vested right with respect to points, rewards, or program benefits. Program members who do not agree with the terms and conditions of the Program set forth herein should cancel their membership.

Accrued points do not constitute property of the member. Points are for the member's benefit only and may not be transferred to anyone. The rewards structure is subject to modification, cancellation, or limitation at Talbots' discretion, with or without notice. The number of points required to redeem any reward may be increased, any reward may be withdrawn, and restrictions on any reward or its redemption may be imposed at any time.

Additionally, Talbots has the right to end this program by providing written notice to its members 3 months in advance of program termination. In that event, the right to earn points and redeem points for rewards may end 3 months after notification, no matter the extent of member participation in the program.

Participation in Talbots Classic Awards program is subject to these Terms and Conditions and any other terms and conditions, rules, regulations, policies, and procedures adopted by Talbots at any time.

Talbots reserves the right to void Classic Awards member accounts and Appreciation Dividends of any person(s) who have wrongfully earned points via deception, forgery, and/or fraud.

No purchase is necessary to receive a Classic Awards Red membership card. Classic Awards Red membership is available to Talbots customers in the United States and Canada. The Classic Awards Red membership card or membership number must be presented at the time of sale to receive points for the purchase. Purchase is required to earn points. Only the individual program member who makes the purchase may earn points.

Classic Awards Platinum and Classic Awards Black levels are available only to Talbots Credit Card account customers in the United States. The Talbots Credit Card must be presented as method of payment at the time of sale to receive Classic Awards Platinum and Classic Awards Black level points for the purchase. Purchase is required to earn points. Only the individual program member who makes the purchase may earn points.

Talbots Credit Cardholders must spend $1,000 on their Talbots Credit Card in a calendar year to achieve Classic Awards Black status. Once achieved, Classic Awards Black status will continue through the end of the following calendar year. In order to maintain Classic Awards Black status, however, holders must continue to spend $1,000 annually on the card. If a Talbots Credit Cardholder does not spend $1,000 on the card in any calendar year, the card will be designated as a Classic Awards Platinum card as of the commencement of the following calendar year. Thereafter, a Talbots Credit Cardholder can again achieve Classic Awards Black status when the holder again spends $1,000 on the card in a calendar year.

Appreciation Dividends, points, and/or Classic Awards Red membership cards cannot be transferred, purchased, sold, or traded. Points earned cannot be shared across more than one account.

Points may be earned on purchases when Appreciation Dividends are redeemed.

Appreciation Dividends are awarded on the basis of net purchases. Net purchases are all Talbots Credit Card purchases, gift card and e-gift certificate purchases minus returned merchandise, refunds and other adjustments; net purchases also exclude taxes and shipping and handling charges.

Classic Awards Red members earn 0.5 points for every $1 spent. Classic Awards Platinum members earn 1 point for every $1 spent on their Talbots Credit Card. Classic Awards Black members earn 1.25 points for every $1 spent on their Talbots Credit Card. Customers across all tiers are issued a $25 Appreciation Dividend when their point balance reaches 500.

Appreciation Dividends will be calculated and fulfilled regularly. Appreciation Dividends can be redeemed only on a Talbots merchandise purchase that equals or exceeds the total amount of the Appreciation Dividends being applied to the purchase. Appreciation Dividends may not be used toward payment of outstanding Talbots Credit Card account balances, cannot be used to purchase gift cards and e-gift certificates, have no cash value, are not transferable and are for promotional purposes only, without any money or other thing of value being given in exchange. Appreciation Dividends can be redeemed for six months from their issuance date. Appreciation Dividends are good for one-time use only and must be surrendered at the time of redemption.

Points accumulated by Classic Awards Red and Classic Awards Platinum members that do not qualify for an Appreciation Dividend will be retained for the balance of the calendar year and will expire on December 31. Points accumulated by Classic Awards Black members that do not qualify for an Appreciation Dividend will be retained and carry over to the following year. They will expire December 31 of the following year if the customer does not spend $1,000 on her Talbots Credit Card during that calendar year.

Talbots is not responsible for Appreciation Dividends lost in the mail or e-mail, or not received due to failure to update the member address information on the account. Talbots must be notified of changes of address via the website or by calling the toll-free customer service number 1-800-825-2687.

Talbots Credit Cardholders can also enjoy an additional 5% off markdowns during our Semi-annual Red Hanger Clearance sales.
