Participation in the West Advantage Silver Rewards Program™ is Free. Participation in the West Advantage Gold Rewards Program™ featuring the Boat Owners Association of The United States requires payment of membership dues at the time of enrollment and annually to renew membership. Participation in either West Advantage (Silver or Gold) Rewards Program (collectively, "Program") is limited to individuals making purchases through West Marine retail stores, catalog or online at westmarine.com. West Marine wholesale customers (e.g., Port Supply customers), businesses and other entities do not qualify for Program membership. Membership Cards for either Program ("Membership Card") are accepted for purchases made at any West Marine store, or through the catalog division or online at westmarine.com. In either Program, a qualified merchandise purchase ("Qualified Purchase") is required to earn West Advantage Points ("Points") toward Program Reward Certificates ("Reward Certificates"). Boating product purchases are considered Qualified Purchases. Towing and trailer services, boat financing, boating insurance, and other services that are purchased are considered non-merchandise. Members enrolled in the West Advantage Silver Rewards Program with no Qualified Purchase activity within a twelve (12)-month period of enrollment date forfeit accrued Points. Members enrolled in the West Advantage Gold Rewards Program will retain their Points regardless of Qualified Purchase activity, provided BoatUS membership dues are paid when due and there is no interruption in membership. BoatUS memberships, which are not renewed within thirty (30) days past expiration, will automatically be enrolled in the FREE West Advantage Silver Rewards Program and rules applicable to that Program will apply. West Marine Associates may join either Program, and are subject to special terms and conditions in each Program found on Store Net and training materials. Program Members ("Members") earn one (1) Point for every one dollar ($1.00) of Qualified Purchases by presenting their Membership number or card or by providing their phone number at the time of making a Qualified Purchase. Points earned and Reward Certificates awarded pursuant to either Program have no cash redemption or currency value. Points in either Program cannot be awarded for Qualified Purchases made prior to enrollment. Points can only be applied to the Program account belonging to the individual making the Qualified Purchase. Identification may be required. Points earned will be adjusted for all Qualified Purchases that are returned for refund or credit or are substituted or replaced with non-merchandise or merchandise that is not a Qualified Purchase. Shipping, taxes, Port Supply transactions, towing and trailer services, boat financing, boating insurance, and other non-merchandise items and services are excluded from earning Points in either Program. Coupons, other reward certificates and gift certificate redemptions are also excluded.
Member Reward Certificates
Reward Certificates will be issued automatically once a Member has accumulated 500 points for West Advantage Silver Rewards Program and 250 points for West Advantage Gold Rewards program. Reward Certificates issued are in $5.00 increments to Members enrolled in the West Advantage Silver Rewards Program and in $10.00 increments to Members enrolled in the West Advantage Gold Rewards Program. Reward Certificates may be used only towards future Qualified Purchases. Reward Certificates expire six (6) months from the date of issue and are reflected on the certificate. Reward Certificates have no cash or other currency value. Therefore, when a Reward Certificate is used toward the purchase of a Qualified Purchase and the retail price of the Qualified Purchase(s) is less than the Reward Certificate's stated value or amount, no cash change, credit or difference in face value, or otherwise, will be given or redeemable. Rewards Certificates may be redeemed for Qualified Purchases made in West Marine stores, catalog or online at westmarine.com. Points and Rewards Certificates cannot be applied to Qualified Purchases made prior to enrollment in a Program; non-merchandise purchases; clearance-priced merchandise; gift card purchases; purchases made by Associates at Associate pricing; Port Supply purchases; taxes, shipping and handling charges; or as payments towards credit card, insurance, financing or other non-merchandise services. Rewards Certificates may not be valid on select items, including, but not exclusive or limited to, Bose, Penn, Shimano, and selected Garmin products. West Marine reserves the right to change this list of excluded product at any time, for any reason, without prior notification.
