Updated. Effective February 28, 2020
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, 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 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 Points by participating in certain special activities announced by The North Face from time to time. Points will be earned during Point earning windows (as defined in Section 4) each Program Year. A Program Year shall be defined as November 1 through October 31, beginning November 1, 2017. Members earning sufficient Points by the end of a Points earning window or Program Year, as described below, will earn Rewards (described below in 4. Member Benefits).
A. Eligibility: You must be at least 18 years of age 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, with the exception of store associates of all The North Face Stores and The North Face Outlet stores in the United States and Canada, who, while employees of these stores, can take advantage of certain VIPeak member benefits unless such benefits explicitly exclude their participation.
B. How to Join: You may register to become a VIPeak Member two 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. 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 Member Benefits.
Once you make the request online, or at the store, you will be considered a Member and start earning Points, but for complete access to all the Member Benefots (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 Point Information and other Member Benefits: You can become a Member without setting up an account at www.thenorthface.com and earn Points and receive Rewards (described below in Member Benefits). However, in order to be able to access how many Points you have earned, 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 ensure proper accounting of Points and receipt of Rewards. 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 Points
A. Points can be earned during three “Point earning windows” as further described in Section 4. Once a Point earning window has concluded, the applicable Reward, if any, will be automatically issued based on the Point balance you have earned at that time, as described below.
B. When you shop at United States The North Face Stores or www.thenorthface.com you will automatically receive ten (10) 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) Points for every $1 (USD) spent on any Qualifying Purchase.
The Points earned from Qualifying Purchases will be added into your VIPeak account when you provide your email address or phone number used to become a Member, at the time of purchase. It can take 1-5 days for your Points to appear in your account.
If you did not provide your email address or phone number at the time of purchase, or do not see Points from a previous purchase in your account after five (5) days, 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 Points for the purchase or activity, the Points will be added into your Program account.
0 to 1,999 Points
2,000 to 3,499 Points
$20 USD Reward
3,500 to 4,999 Points
$25 USD Reward
$30 USD Reward
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 and www.thenorthface.ca with the exception of Sample Sale items sold at The North Face Outlet Stores. Sample Sale items are excluded from VIPeak Rewards and Points are not earned for purchases of such items. No Points are earned when purchasing Gift Cards or eGift Cards from The North Face, but you do earn 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 and www.thenorthface.ca. In addition, no Points are earned for payment of sales tax, gift boxes or wrapping, or for shipping and handling costs. No 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. Points may also be earned for participation in certain activities designated and announced by The North Face during a Point earning window. Example activities could include: referring a friend, downloading the The North Face mobile application, checking in at The North Face stores owned by The North Face and not a third party and/or bringing your own reusable shopping bag for purchased items when shopping at The North Face stores owned by The North Face and not a third party. Members may also be able to earn bonus 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 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 Points you have earned through a Qualifying Purchase (including bonus Points for designated products, if applicable) by providing your phone or email address at the time of purchase, will be netted from your overall Points total if the item is returned. Returns of merchandise purchased in the prior Point earning window will be deducted from the Member's Points balance in the current Point earning window. Points have no cash value. You cannot give or transfer your Points to anyone else.
4. Member Benefits
A. The Rewards described in the table below are available to qualifying Members up to three times each Program Year, based on the Member’s Point balance at the end of each Point earning window, as outlined in the chart below. The period from the start of a Program year (November 1) through Feb 15 is the “1st Point earning window.” The period from February 16 through June 30 is the “2nd Point earning window.” The period from July 1 through the end of the Program Year (October 31) is the “3rd Point earning window” (the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Point earning windows are each a “Point earning window”). The three dates per Program Year on which Rewards will be issued will be dates determined by The North Face, however, we expect Rewards to be issued within approximately one month following the conclusion of each Point earning window.
Earn Points During These Dates
Get a Reward
Program year starts:
1st Point Earning Window
November 1 – February 15
2nd Point Earning Window
February 16 – June 30
3rd Point Earning Window
July 1 – October 31
Program year ends:
“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 www.thenorthface.ca 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.
B. Rewards are sent electronically to the email address associated with your VIPeak Program account. Once issued, members can also access their Reward by logging in to their member dashboard on thenorthface.com. All Rewards expire approximately six weeks from the date the Reward was issued. The exact expiration date of the Rewards will be identified when the Rewards are issued.
Points accumulate throughout the 1st Point earning window. At the end of the 1st Point earning window, Rewards are issued based on the number of Points a Member has on February 15. For example, a Member with 2,600 Points on February 15 (the end of the 1st Point earning window) would have achieved Level 1 membership status and the Member would be issued a Reward of a $20 USD coupon off an eligible The North Face purchase.
If a Member uses any of the Reward issued after the 1st Point earning window, all of the Points the Member had accumulated by February 15 are automatically redeemed for that Reward. If a Member does not use any of the Reward issued based on Points accumulated in the 1st Point earning window, or if the Member did not qualify for a Reward based on Points accumulated in the 1st Point earning window, no Points are redeemed and the Member continues to accumulate Points during the 2nd Point earning window.
At the end of the 2nd Point earning window, June 30, Rewards are issued based on the number of Points a Member has on that date, June 30. If a Member uses any of the Reward issued after the 2nd Point earning window, all of the Points the member has accumulated by June 30 are automatically redeemed for that Reward. If a Member does not use any of the Reward issued based on Points accumulated in the 2nd Point earning window (including unredeemed Points accumulated during the 1st Point earning window) or if the Member did not qualify for a Reward based on Points accumulated in the 2nd Point earning window, no Points are redeemed and the Member continues to accumulate Point for the remainder of the Program Year.
At the end of the 3rd Point earning window, October 31, which is also the end of the Program Year, all Points are automatically redeemed for any available Reward. No Points will carry over to the next Program Year. For example, a Member with 3,600 Points on Oct 31 (the end of the 3rd Points earning window) would have achieved the Level 2 membership status and at the end of the 3rd Point earning window all of the Member’s Points would be automatically redeemed for a Reward of a $25 USD coupon off an eligible The North Face purchase.
C. Each Reward will contain a unique Card number 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 and www.thenorthface.ca by entering the Card number 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 do not give rise to any property or other interest whatsoever.
Rewards may only be redeemed in the Member’s country of residence, or via the thenorthface.com or www.thenorthface.ca website for the Member’s country of residence. Rewards are redeemable for the applicable discount in United States dollars for United States residents. A Member’s country of residence shall be determined by the Member’s home address or, if that address is not available, by the country where the Member last made a purchase. Return of items purchased with a Reward will not result in a return of the Points redeemed by use of that Reward.
D. The Card number and pin on your Reward may be used by anyone, and you are solely responsible for protecting it from unauthorized use. If the unique Card number 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. The North Face, in its sole discretion, may offer additional opportunities for Members to use Points during a Program Year.
F. VIPeak Members may also have first access to new products, special offers and gift, and be invited to participate in exclusive experiences for VIPeak Members.
