GIFT CARDS TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“Gift Card Rules”)

The Gift Card Terms and Conditions (this “Gift Card Rules”) is an agreement between you and Smoothie Factory, and describes the terms and conditions that apply to your gift card [when available]. By buying, loading, or using a Gift Card, you agree to these terms. Please read the following provisions, as well as the complete Terms of Use and Privacy Policy that govern the Sites.

These Gift Card Rules include an Arbitration provision that governs any disputes between you and us. This provision will: 1) Eliminate your right to a trial by jury; and 2) Substantially affect your rights, including preventing you from bringing, joining, or participating in class or consolidated proceedings.

ABOUT YOUR GIFT CARD

Smoothie Factory gift cards are not subject to any service fees or expiration dates. Your use of a gift card constitutes your acceptance of the complete Gift Card Rules (including the Arbitration provisions). Gift cards are redeemable for food, drink and eligible merchandise at participating locations in the United States. Eligible merchandise or services are determined by Smoothie Factory in its sole discretion and may be changed without notice. Gift cards cannot be used to purchase other gift cards and you will not receive Rewards points for the purchase of any gift card. Gift cards cannot be redeemed for cash or applied as payment to any account, unless required by law. In California, all gift cards are redeemable for cash upon request if the balance on the card is less than $10.00. Gift cards may be redeemable for cash when their balance falls below a certain amount in other states within the United States as well.

 ELECTRONIC GIFT CARDS

The Electronic Gift Card program allows you to purchase and send a virtual Card via email. You may choose the design and dollar value (within certain limits) and complete your purchase using a credit card, or debit card. You will need the email address for the recipient of your Card eGift (also known as an “eGift” or “eGift Card”). You authorize us to charge your credit card or debit card at the time you purchase your eGift.

We will send the recipient of your eGift an email notifying them that they have received an eGift from you. He or she will then be able to print out the eGift and bring it into a location to make a purchase. An eGift is like a gift card and should be treated like cash by the recipient.

Each eGift has a unique gift card account number associated with it no matter how many times the email is printed out. We will only give refunds for unused eGifts with the original receipt.

ADDING VALUE TO YOUR GIFT CARD

In the United States, you can load a dollar value on a gift card by using a credit card, debit card or cash by visiting any participating location. You may not load more than $500 worth of value on each gift card. The minimum amount that must be loaded onto your gift card is $5. Smoothie Factory may change the maximum and minimum amounts at any time by notifying you at the point of sale, by phone when you call or on the Sites, and such change shall not constitute an amendment to these Gift Card Rules.

LOST, STOLEN OR DAMAGED GIFT CARD REPLACEMENT POLICY

Unless you have an original sales receipt for your gift card and your 16-digit gift card number, or unless it has been registered by you on smoothiefactory.com and you can provide us your email address or phone number that you used to register your gift card, the remaining gift card value will not be replaced if lost, stolen or damaged.

  • If you registered your gift card with us, you can contact us via the Contact Us section of the Site or via your account balance page (go to disable my gift card) and we can deactivate your lost, stolen or damaged gift card and load the balance remaining at the time of notification onto a new gift card or FACTORY REWARDS account.
  • You can also go into a participating location, with your original receipt for the gift card purchase and your 16-digit gift card number or, again, if you registered the gift card with us and you can provide your email address or phone number that you used to register the gift card. The restaurant personnel can deactivate your gift card and issue you a new gift card with the remaining balance.
  • If you cannot either go online or to a participating SMOOTHIE FACTORY restaurant and if your gift card has been lost, stolen or damaged, please mail: (1) the 16-digit gift card number (or if you registered your gift card with us, you can provide us with the email address or phone number used at the time of registration), (2) an original location receipt indicating the purchase of the gift card, (3) a copy of a valid government issued I.D. (Driver’s License, Military I.D., or Passport), and (4) your complete name and mailing address to: Smoothie Holdings, LLC, Attn: Gift Cards Replacement, 2811 McKinney Avenue, Suite 354, Dallas, TX 75204. Upon satisfactory receipt of these required information, Smoothie Factory will cancel your old gift card and issue a new gift card in the amount of any remaining balance on your old gift card on the date of Smoothie Factory’s receipt of the such information. The replacement gift card will be mailed to the address you provide, which must be a valid street address. P.O. Boxes will not be accepted. Please make a copy of all documents you submit to us for your records. All documents submitted become Smoothie Factory’s property and will not be returned. Please allow up to 8 weeks for delivery of the replacement gift card. Smoothie Factory shall not be responsible for any lost, late, illegible, damaged, misdirected, incomplete or postage due mail. Reproduction, purchase, trade or sales of Report Form, gift card numbers, and or cash register receipts are prohibited. Fraudulent submissions may result in prosecution under applicable federal mail fraud statutes.

FRAUD ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR GIFT CARD OR CARD BALANCE

We will not accept any gift card, or will limit use of any gift card or gift card balance, if we reasonably believe that the use is unauthorized, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful, and we consider such action appropriate to limit our risk. Smoothie Factory does not control who may sell preloaded gift cards, nor can we control the price or preloaded denominations offered by independent sellers. Consequently, Smoothie Factory has no liability to you for any third party fraud or unlawful activity associated with any gift card balance. If Smoothie Factory discovers any gift card or gift card balance was sourced or derived from fraud or other unlawful means, in our sole discretion, we may cancel all impacted gift cards and retain all related gift card balances without notice to you. We may use retained gift card balances to help offset our liability to card companies, networks and issuers of lost or stolen credit and debit cards used to purchase or load gift cards.

REGISTRATION, LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTIONS

To register your gift card, please visit smoothiefactory.com. When registering a gift card, you agree that you will: (i) provide complete and accurate information about yourself; and (ii) update such information if it changes. If you do not provide or update such information, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that you have not provided or updated such information, we shall have the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to disable your gift card. If you believe your gift card has been disabled in error, please call (214) 302-5979. You are responsible for: (a) the accuracy of all information that you provide to us; and (b) maintaining the confidentiality and security of your gift card information.

Because your gift card is used like cash for purchases from participating locations, you are responsible for all transactions associated with your gift card, including unauthorized transactions. However, if your gift card is lost, stolen or destroyed, the card can be replaced with the balance remaining on it at the time of your call, but only if you have registered it with us. Please notify us immediately if you change any of your registration information. If your gift card becomes lost, stolen or damaged, you should contact us via the Contact Us section of the Site. Your gift card balance is only protected from the point in time you notify us that your gift card is missing. We will freeze the remaining balance on your gift card at the time you notify us and will load that remaining balance on a replacement gift card.

ARBITRATION

Please read this section carefully. It affects rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and discovery is more limited. Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. This arbitration clause shall survive termination of these Gift Card Rules.

This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to these Gift Card Rules, your gift card and your relationship with us. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Gift Card Rules or use of the gift card and your relationship with Smoothie Factory or any subsidiary, parent or affiliate company or companies (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration, except that either of us may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.

Notwithstanding the above, you may choose to pursue your claim in court and not by arbitration if you opt out of this arbitration provision within 30 days from the earliest of the date you purchased, loaded, reloaded or used any of your gift cards (the “Opt Out Deadline”) after these Gift Card Rules have gone into effect. You may opt out of these arbitration procedures by sending us a written notice that you opt out to the following address: Smoothie Holdings, LLC, Attn: Customer Service, 2811 McKinney Ave., Ste. 354, Dallas, TX 75204. Any opt-out received after the Opt Out Deadline (allowing three (3) additional days for mailing) will not be valid and you must pursue your claim in arbitration or small claims court.

For all disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first send a written description of your claim to our Customer Service department to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You and we each agree to negotiate your claim in good faith. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within sixty (60) days. The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement. The AAA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available online at www.adr.org. You and we agree that these Gift Card Rules evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law, and not governed by state law. Any arbitration will be held in a reasonably convenient location in the state in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim, and must follow and enforce these Gift Card Rules and this arbitration agreement as a court would. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.

Except for claims determined to be frivolous, upon filing of the arbitration demand, we will pay half of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees other than the initial $200 filing fee. Each party will bear the fees and expense of its own attorneys, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration.

You and we each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. If you opt out of the arbitration provision as specified above, this class action waiver provision will not apply to you. Neither you, nor any other customer, can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt out procedure set forth above. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.

These Gift Card Rules and this agreement to arbitrate shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas not withstanding any conflict-of-laws rules.

In the event of an inconsistency between these Terms and either the Smoothie Factory Loyalty Program Rules or the Gift Card Rules relating to your use of the Sites, these Terms shall prevail. In the event of an inconsistency between these Terms and the Smoothie Factory Loyalty Program Rules relating to your use of your FACTORY REWARDS loyalty card or FACTORY REWARDS points, the Smoothie Factory Loyalty Program Rules shall prevail. In the event of an inconsistency between these Terms and the Gift Card Rules relating to your use of your SMOOTHIE FACTORY gift card, the Gift Card Rules shall prevail. No failure by Smoothie Factory or you to exercise any rights, powers or remedies hereunder or its delay to do so shall constitute a waiver of these rights, powers or remedies. The single or partial exercise of a right, power or remedy shall not prevent its subsequent exercise or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. If any provision of these Terms or part thereof is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the illegality, invalidity or unenforceability of that provision will not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of the remainder of the provision or the remaining provisions of these Terms, as the case may be, or the legality, validity or enforceability of that provision or part thereof in any other jurisdiction. These Terms are effective until terminated by you or Smoothie Factory, which Smoothie Factory may do at any time, without notice, in its sole discretion. If you become dissatisfied with the Sites, your only recourse is to immediately discontinue use of the Sites. All provisions of the Terms regarding representations, warranties, indemnification, disclaimers, and limitations of liability shall survive the termination of the Terms.
