10% Reward: GB Business Members enjoy an annual 10% Reward (the “Reward”) on certain Grand Bazaar purchases as described below

The 10% Reward is based on the annual Grand Bazaar purchases (see “Calculation of Reward”) made by the primary and spouse cardholders on the membership account. The Reward coupon is mailed to the primary member with the annual membership renewal notice and may only be used by the primary member toward Grand Bazaar purchases.

The Reward Program is subject to the following restrictions. Grand Bazaar reserves the right at its discretion to discontinue the Reward Program at any time and to make changes to the program that will apply upon renewal of your membership. Failure to comply with these conditions and regulations or abuse of your membership privileges may result in the cancellation of your membership or curtailment of certain privileges. A member must be an active, paid Business Member at the time the Reward is earned and issued in order to receive the annual 10% Reward. Only purchases made by the primary and spouse cardholders are used to calculate the Reward.

The Reward is approximately 10% of pre-tax purchases of most merchandise, including Grand Bazaar Travel**, and will be calculated on purchases by Canadian residents of merchandise through the front-end registers at Grand Bazaar department stores in Canada and the United States and online at grandbazaaralaturk.com. Rewards will not be calculated: (i) on purchases that are not recorded through Grand Bazaar department store’s front-end registers, such as services, purchases at Grand Bazaar food courts, optical centres, beauty saloons; (ii) on membership fees; (iii) on miscellaneous fees, deposits and taxes, including applicable sales tax and goods and services tax; on purchases where prohibited by legal or regulatory restrictions; (iv) on certain other categories as determined from time to time at Grand Bazaar’s sole discretion; or (v) on purchases made by anyone other than the Business Membership account’s primary and spouse cardholders. The period of calculation will run approximately from the date of the member’s paid enrollment or upgrade to Business Membership through the date approximately three months prior to the member’s renewal date. Purchases from the last three months will be added to the following year’s Reward calculation. Calculation of a Reward is capped at, and will not exceed, $1,000 for any 12-month period.

Reward coupons will be mailed with membership renewal notices. Reward coupons may be redeemed by the primary member toward purchases of most merchandise through the front-end registers at Grand Bazaar department stores throughout Canada only. Reward coupons may be used toward purchases of merchandise only; they have no independent cash value. Reward coupons may not be used: (i) toward purchases that are not recorded through Grand Bazaar department stores’ front-end registers, such as purchases at Grand Bazaar food courts, optical centres, beauty saloons and online at Grand bazaaralaturk.com; (ii) toward purchases of services, including travel, auto and other services; (iii) toward purchases where prohibited by legal or regulatory restrictions; or (iv) toward certain other purchases as determined from time to time at Grand Bazaar department stores’ discretion.
