- Booths shall be entitled to withdraw or cancel an individual Booths Card without liability to the Cardholder if we have reason to believe that the Cardholder has breached these Terms and Conditions, is otherwise abusing the scheme (or any element of it), has (in relation to Booths), committed any theft, dishonest or fraudulent behaviour or behaved in such a way that is abusive or offensive. The Cardholder will immediately lose all rights to receive any benefits available to Cardholders or that may have accrued to that individual Cardholder, including any vouchers accrued under the 5% reward scheme (as detailed below).
- Each person is entitled to one Booths Card only, and if we become aware that a Cardholder is operating more than one account, we shall be entitled to merge them or deactivate an account at our discretion.
- Cardholders must be 16 years old.
- Cardholders under 18 years old cannot purchase any age restricted products or participate in any age restricted offers and events.
- Usage of the Booths Card is restricted to the owner of the Booths Card.
- Cardholders must update their personal details from time to time on their online Cardholder account and where this is not possible, shall keep Booths informed of any changes to their personal or membership details.
- To take advantage of any Booths Card offers, the Cardholder must scan their Booths Card in store or enter their card number on everyday click and collect orders online at the time of redemption (and, where applicable, purchase). Booths Card offers will not be applied retrospectively if the Cardholder does not present and scan the Booths Card at the time of redemption (and, where applicable, purchase).
- The Cardholder cannot redeem or begin to collect any Cardholder rewards until the physical Booths Card has been issued by Booths presented by the Cardholder at subsequent transactions. Rewards or benefits cannot be retrospectively applied.
- The Booths card is valid in Booths stores and excludes petrol stations.
- Booths reserves the right to:
- amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Any amendments to these Terms and Conditions will be made available to view via the Booths website www.booths.co.uk;
- remove or amend any benefits, rewards or offers made available to Booths Cardholders. Booths offers no warranty, representation or guarantee that any Booths Card scheme benefit or reward will be available for any minimum period and may withdraw such benefits or rewards from time to time in its sole discretion.
- The Cardholder must present and scan their Booths Card each time they purchase Qualifying Products in a Booths store in order to collect their 5% reward. Cardholders who forget their physical Booths Card can alternatively give the Booths checkout colleague their Booths Card number at the time of their transaction. This can be found in their online Booths Card account. Cardholders who order through our online everyday click and collect must input their card number at the time of order to collect their 5% reward.
- It is not possible to add rewards to the Cardholder’s account after a transaction is complete.
- A non-monetary amount equal to 5% of the total price paid (including VAT) for Qualifying Products in each transaction (following the deduction of all promotions and discounts) (the “Reward Amount“) will be allocated to the Cardholder’s account.
- Such Reward Amount has no value until the balance of the Reward Amount has reached £5 (or any increments of £5) and is converted into vouchers of £5 increments at the end of each collection period.
- The length of the collection period shall be determined by Booths but shall be no less frequently than 4 (four) times in each calendar year.
- Reward Amounts that have not been converted into vouchers because they are below the qualifying £5 threshold will be ‘carried forward’ as the starting balance for the next collection period. By way of example only, if a Cardholder has accrued a Reward Amount equal to £12 at the end of a collection period, Booths shall issue vouchers to the value of £10 and the £2 balance of the Reward Amount shall remain in the Cardholder’s account until such time as further Reward Amounts accrue and reach £5.
- The vouchers issued by Booths may only be redeemed against purchases that the Cardholder makes in a Booths store.
- “Qualifying Products” will be identified by way of a symbol or relevant wording in the shelf edge label (or otherwise on promotional materials located in store). The products constituting “Qualifying Products” may change from time to time without notice at Booths’ discretion. Reward Amounts will not be awarded to non-qualifying products.
- Full details of how the 5% reward works can be found www.booths.co.uk/about-booths-card/

- Rewards or vouchers already issued may be removed or cancelled if Booths determines that the points were collected in breach of these Terms and Conditions or were awarded in error.

- Vouchers are only valid for 8 (eight) weeks from issue. We cannot accept expired vouchers and will not replace them.
