By registering to become a member (a “Member” or “you” or “your”) of The North Face® VIPeak rewards program (“VIPeak” or the “Program”) and by participating in the Program, you (i) represent that you are 18 years of age or older or, if you are a resident of Canada, have reached the age of majority in your province or territory of residence, and (ii) agree to the following Program Terms and Conditions (these “Terms”). VIPeak Program is sponsored by The North Face, a division of VF Outdoor, LLC (“The North Face”).
1. VIPeak Overview
When you join VIPeak, it allows you to earn Peak Points on your
purchases made in the United States or Canada at The North Face full
price retail stores owned by The North Face (“The North Face Stores”),
The North Face Outlet stores, and The North Face website at
www.thenorthface.com. You may also earn Peak Points by participating
in certain special activities announced by The North Face from time to
time. Peak Points will be earned each Peak Points Year, which shall
be defined as February 16, 2017 through October 31, 2017, and then
November 1 through October 31, for each subsequent year beginning
November 1, 2017 (each a “Peak Points Year”). During, and at the end
of a Peak Points Year, Members earning sufficient Peak Points, as
described below, will earn a reward and may be granted access to a
special VIPeak Rewards Catalog (jointly, the “Peak Perks”).
A. Eligibility: You must be at least 18 years of age or, if you are a Canadian resident, of the age of majority or older in your province or territory of residence, to become a member. Employees of all VF Corporation brands and individuals receiving a discount or free product to represent a VF Corporation brand are not eligible.
B. How to Join: You may register to become a VIPeak Member three different ways:
i. Online at www.thenorthface.com by creating an account and indicating that you want to be a VIPeak Member or if you already have an account at www.thenorthface.com, by merely indicating that you want to be a VIPeak Member.
ii. On our Facebook page www.facebook.com/thenorthface you may be given an option to provide your name and email address and designate that you want to be a VIPeak Member. If you already have an account at www.thenorthface.com you will receive an email requesting that you confirm your request to become a Member. If you do not have an account at www.thenorthface.com you will receive an email requesting that you confirm your request and set up an account at www.thenorthface.com so you will have full access to all the Peak Perks.
iii. At any of The North Face Stores or The North Face Outlet
stores by providing your name and email address to sign up to be a
Member. Once you make this request, if you already have an account at
www.thenorthface.com you will receive an email requesting that you
confirm your request to become a Member. If you do not have an account
at www.thenorthface.com when you provide your name and email address
in store, you will receive an email requesting that you confirm your
request and set up an account at www.thenorthface.com so you will have
full access to all the Peak Perks.
Once you make the request on our Facebook page or at the store, you will be considered a Member and start earning Peak Points, but for complete access to all the Peak Perks (as described below), you must have, or create, an account online at www.thenorthface.com, which will also be your Program account. To create an account, go to www.thenorthface.com and click on "My Account" at the top of the home page and provide the information to create an account.
C. Accessing Peak Points Information and all the Peak Perks: You can be a Member without setting up an account at www.thenorthface.com and earn Peak Points and receive Rewards (described below in Peak Perks). However, in order to be able to access how many Peak Points you have earned or to use the VIPeak Rewards Catalog (described below in Peak Perks) if you are eligible in a Peak Points Year as described below, you must have an account at www.thenorthface.com. When setting up the account at www.thenorthface.com, you are responsible for creating a complex password to protect your account and for ensuring that you do not share your password with others.
D. Updating information: You are responsible for providing the correct email address to receive Peak Perks and to ensure proper accounting of Peak Points and receipt of Peak Perks. As a result, each Member is responsible for maintaining accurate and updated personal information, including your email address. You may update your personal information online at www.thenorthface.com/vipeak or by calling: 888-TNF-1968 / 888-863-1968.
3. Earning Peak Points
A. Peak Points can be earned during a Peak Points Year. Once a Peak Points Year has concluded, the Peak Points that you have earned will be automatically redeemed for any available Reward, as described below, and you will start at zero again for the new Peak Points Year.
B. When you shop at United States The North Face Stores or
www.thenorthface.com you will automatically receive ten (10) Peak
Points for every $1 (USD) spent on any eligible product that is
purchased (a "Qualifying Purchase," as further described
below). When you shop at United States The North Face Outlet stores
you will automatically receive five (5) Peak Points for every $1 (USD)
spent on any Qualifying Purchase. When you shop at Canadian The North
Face Stores or www.thenorthface.com/ca you will automatically receive
eight (8) Peak Points for every $1 (CAD) spent on any Qualifying
Purchase. When you shop at Canadian The North Face Outlet stores you
will automatically receive four (4) Peak Points for every $1 (CAD)
spent on any Qualifying Purchase. The Peak Points will be added into
your VIPeak account when you provide at the time of purchase your
email address or phone number used to become a Member. If you did not
provide your email address or phone number at the time of purchase,
you may call Customer Service at 888-TNF-1968 / 888-863-1968 and upon
verification by Customer Service of your purchase or activity and that
you did not previously receive Peak Points for the purchase or
activity, the Peak Points will be added into your Program account.
C. Qualifying Purchases include regular and sale priced merchandise in The North Face Stores, The North Face Outlet stores, and online at www.thenorthface.com with the exception of Sample Sale items sold at The North Face Outlet Stores. Sample Sale items are excluded from VIPeak Rewards and Peak Points are not earned for purchases of such items. No Peak Points are earned when purchasing Gift Cards or eGift Cards from The North Face, but you do earn Peak Points when redeeming a Gift Card or an eGift Card at The North Face Stores, The North Face Outlet stores, or online at www.thenorthface.com. In addition, no Peak Points are earned for payment of sales tax, gift boxes or wrapping, or for shipping and handling costs. No Peak Points are earned for purchase of The North Face branded items at wholesale dealers or third party owned The North Face stores. Please ask a store associate to determine which The North Face stores are owned by The North Face and not a third party.
D. Peak Points may also be earned for participation in certain activities designated and announced by The North Face during the Peak Points Year. Example activities could include: connecting with The North Face on social media, participating in the Endurance Challenge, initial sign up for email from The North Face or making a Clothes the Loop donation. Members may also be able to earn bonus Peak Points for making purchases of designated products or during a designated time as determined and announced by The North Face. The North Face reserves the right to make bonus Peak Points and other promotional offers available to select Members based on purchase activity, geographic location, Program participation, and/or information supplied by the Member. The North Face reserves the right to add, withdraw, amend, or otherwise change bonus opportunities at any time at its sole discretion, with or without notice to Members.
E. The Peak Points you have earned through a Qualifying Purchase (including bonus Peak Points for designated products, if applicable) by providing your phone or email address at the time of purchase, will be netted from your overall Peak Points total if the item is returned. Returns of merchandise purchased in the prior Peak Points Year will be deducted from the Member's Peak Points balance in the current Peak Points Year. Peak Points have no cash value. You cannot give or transfer your Peak Points to anyone else.
4. Peak Perks - Member Benefits
A. The Rewards described in the table below will be provided to Members two times per Peak Points Year, based on the Member’s Peak Point balance at the time the Rewards are issued. The two dates per Peak Points Year on which Rewards will be issued will be dates determined by The North Face, however, we expect them to issue once in the summer, and once following the conclusion of the Peak Points Year. “Rewards” means coupons issued for discounts off purchases from The North Face Stores, The North Face Outlet stores, and online at www.thenorthface.com and redeemable subject to these Program terms; Rewards are promotional items for Members of the VIPeak Program and are not Gift Cards or eGift Cards of The North Face.
Peak Points Earned
Program Level Achieved
Peak Perk(s) Reward
0 to 1,999
2,000 to 3,499
3,500 to 4,999
5,000 and over
B. Rewards are sent electronically to the email address associated with your VIPeak Program account. All Rewards expire six weeks from the date the Reward was issued.
Peak Points accumulate throughout the Peak Points Year and do not re-set to zero until the Peak Points Year ends, even if a summer Reward is issued. However, at the end of a Peak Points Year, all Peak Points are automatically redeemed for any available Reward. For example, a Member with 2,600 Peak Points at the time the summer Reward is issued would have achieved the Basecamp level described above and would receive the Reward of a $20 coupon off a The North Face purchase. However, the Member would continue to accumulate points for the rest of the Peak Points Year. If that Member accumulated an additional 2,000 Peak Points during that Peak Points Year, for a total accumulation of 4,600 Peak Points during that Peak Points Year, then at the end of the Peak Points Year the Member would have achieved the Half Dome level described above and all the Member’s Peak Points would be automatically redeemed for a Reward of a $25 coupon off a The North Face purchase.
C. Each Reward will contain a unique code and pin that may be used at The North Face Stores or the North Face Outlet stores, by providing the associate the code and pin or at www.thenorthface.com by entering the code and pin during checkout. Prior to a Reward expiring, if the entire value of the Reward is not used when making a purchase, the remaining value of the Reward will be available for use with purchases from The North Face until no value remains on the Reward or it expires, whichever occurs first. Rewards may be redeemed at the same time as using The North Face coupons, certificates, discounts, or offers toward the purchase of products. Rewards are not redeemable for cash and no change/currency will be given for Reward redemption. Rewards may only be redeemed in the Member’s country of residence, or via the thenorthface.com website for the Member’s country of residence. Rewards are redeemable for the applicable discount in Canadian currency for Canadian residents and in United States dollars for United States residents. A Member’s country of residence is determined by the Member’s home address or, if address is not available, by the location(s) of the Member’s primary point(s) of purchase.
D. The code and pin on your Reward may be used by anyone, and you are solely responsible for protecting it from unauthorized use. If the unique code and pin for the Reward that is sent to you is used in a manner that was not authorized by you (even if the Reward is lost or stolen), The North Face will not replace Rewards. However, if you delete or lose the email in which you received your Reward, contact Customer Service at 888-TNF-1968 / 888-863-1968 and upon verification by Customer Service of your membership, an email with the same unique code and pin Reward will be resent to you.
E. As an additional benefit, Members achieving the Basecamp, Half Dome, or Summit Program Levels by the end of the Peak Points Year will receive access to the VIPeak Rewards Catalog for a limited time in November after each Peak Points Year. Such Members will have the right to select one product or experience in the Catalog that is listed at or below the number of Peak Points that the Member has. The products and experiences available in the VIPeak Rewards Catalog will be selected solely in the discretion of The North Face and only one item may be selected by each Member. Items in the VIPeak Rewards Catalog will be available while supplies last. If a Member does not select an item from the Catalog during the access period, or if a Member selects an item listed at a lower number of Peak Points than the number of Peak Points the Member accumulated during the applicable Peak Points Year, no additional benefits will be provided. The selection of a Catalog item is a bonus benefit of the Program and selection of an item is not considered a redemption of Peak Points as Peak Points are fully redeemed by issuance of a Reward earned according to these Terms.
F. The North Face, in its sole discretion, may offer additional opportunities for Members to use Peak Points during a Peaks Point Year.
G. VIPeak Members may also have early access to special events and be invited to participate in exclusive experiences for VIPeak Members.
