Rebel Sport - Use amex card to get $30 voucher

Posted By: ninkasi, posted 2011/02/03 14:24
Register for the promotion and then spend $60 or more at Rebel Sport (physical store or online), and you will get a $30 voucher to spend later (valid until Feb 2012).

Enough fine print to sink a ship, but basically you need to register and buy something by 28 Feb. Make sure you use the same card as you registered. I'd also suggest buying the $60 worth of stuff on the website to get the buckscoop $$. ;-)
Expiry date:2011/02/28

    Am trying to work out exactly WHY they want you to register the card. I'm always suspicious of Amex.

    Terms and conditions (some of them)

    Participation is limited to the first 5,000 Cardmembers who register. Once registered, you must complete one (1) single transaction of $60 or more at a Rebel Sport Store and Rebel Sport online stores no later than 23:59 AEDT on 28 February 2011. Eligible Cardmembers may only register once for this offer. Only transactions made on the Card registered for the offer are eligible. Transactions made on another Card account or a supplementary Card with a different Card account number are not eligible. The $30 Rebel Sport Gift Card will be mailed approximately 6 to 8 weeks from the date of the qualifying transaction to the address provided on this registration form. The Gift Card is not redeemable or exchangeable for cash or credit unless otherwise stated. Redemption of the Gift Card is subject to the terms and conditions of Rebel Sport and will expire in February 2012. Please visit rebelsport.com.au for more information. Limit of one $30 Rebel Sports Gift Card per Cardmember.

    Certain American Express Cards, including but not limited to, Corporate Cards, are not considered Eligible Cards.

    This one is interesting.......in respect of the "external organisations that provide services part"

    The Eligible Cardmember agrees that subject to the Privacy Act, American Express or their agents may do the following:

    - Transfer or disclose personal information confidentially to American Express, its related companies or external organisations that provide services in relation to the Merchant Offer. This includes transferring personal information to the USA or other countries for data processing and servicing;

    Pointless circular references like this annoy the hell out of me.

    In reference to the terms and conditions associated with the voucher they write ... "Please visit rebelsport.com.au for more information". That just dumps you at the home page of rebel sport and searching the site returns nothing that provides information about conditions on using the voucher.

    They then go on to say "Please visit amexnetwork.com.au/rebel for full terms and conditions." ie full terms and conditions of the promo. Click that link and you just cycle back to the exact same page you were on..... leaving you confused as to just what all these additional terms and conditions might be and even whether any exist.

    Not criticising your post ninkasi - just taking amex apart for poor marketing.

    heh +1 for that, Donkey. I did say the fine print was impressive... :D

    I do understand why they need the amex number in that the promotion is being limited to the first 5,000 cardmembers so they have to record that somehow. The disclosure to third party bit is because Rebelsports is the third party who will need to know the name & address to send the voucher to down the track. Being a US company (and I've worked for some big ones) Amex would have an impressive number of lawyers who love nothing better than whacking random sentences together. Seen the iTunes agreement? Anyone who uses iTunes has in theory read and agreed to every one of the +14,000 words in that.

    Of course what they could have done is just limit it to the first 5,000 amex holders to buy something from Rebelsports and then Amex could send the vouchers on..... easier from a privacy perspective but more work for them.
