1. VIPeak Overview
When you join VIPeak, it allows you to earn Peak Points on your purchases made in the United States at The North Face stores, participating 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 are earned on an annual basis from February 16th to February 15th of the subsequent year (“Peak Points Year”). At the end of a Peak Points Year, Members earning sufficient Peak Points, as described below, will earn reward certificates and/or access to a special VIPeak Reward Catalog where Peak Points can be redeemed for products and/or experiences (jointly, the “Peak Perks”).
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.
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 by providing your name and email address and designating 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 and participating 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 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 complete an e-commerce account online at www.thenorthface.com, which will also be your Program account. To create an e-commerce 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 Reward Certificates (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 earn 10,000 or more Peak Points in a Peak Points Year, you must have an e-commerce 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 e-commerce 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 determined for that Peak Points Year and you will start at zero again for the new Peak Points Year.
B. When you shop at United States The North Face Retail Stores or www.thenorthface.com and 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 participating United States the North Face Outlet Stores you will automatically receive five (5) Peak Points for every $1 (USD) spent on any Qualifying Purchase that is purchased. 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, participating The North Face Outlet Stores, and online at www.thenorthface.com with the exception of Sample Sale items sold as 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, participating 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.
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 Clothestheloop 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 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. Negative Peak Point balances never expire. Peak Points have no cash value. You cannot give or transfer your Peak Points to anyone else.
4. Peak Perks - Member Benefits
A. After the end of each Peak Points Year, on approximately March 1st, the following Peak Perks will be provided to Members based upon their Peak Point balance for the just closed Peak Points Year:
Peak Points Earned
Peak Perk(s) 0 - 2,499
No Peak Perk and Peak Points expire
Reward Certificate - valued at 0.2% of the Peak Point balance. For example, 5,000 Peak Points = $10.00 Reward Certificate.
10,000 and over
i. Access to the VIPeak Rewards Catalog from March 1 through March 31 and the right to redeem Peak Points for products and experiences in the Catalog.
ii. After the VIPeak Rewards Catalog closes, on approximately April 1, each Member will be sent a Reward Certificate (valued at 0.2% of any Peak Point not used with the Catalog).
B. VIPeak Reward Certificates are sent electronically to the email associated with your VIPeak Program account. All Reward Certificates expire on December 27th of the year the Reward Certificate was issued, when any unused value will be removed. Reward Certificates are promotional items for Members of the VIPeak Program and are not Gift Cards or eGift Cards of The North Face.
C. Each Reward Certificate will contain a unique code and pin that may be used at The North Face Stores, participating 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 Certificate expiring, if the entire value of the Reward Certificate is not used when making a purchase, the remaining value of the Reward Certificate will be available for use with purchases from The North Face until no value remains on the Reward Certificate or it expires, whichever occurs first. Reward Certificates may be redeemed at the same time as using The North Face coupons, certificates, discounts, or offers toward the purchase of products. Reward Certificates are not redeemable for cash and no change/currency will be given for Reward Certificate redemption.
D. The code and pin on your Reward Certificate 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 Certificate that is sent to you is used in a manner that was not authorized by you (even if the Reward Certificate is lost or stolen), The North Face will not replace Reward Certificate. However, if you delete or lose the email in which you received your Reward Certificate, 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 Certificate will be resent to you.
E. The products and experiences available in the VIPeak Reward Catalog will be selected solely in the discretion of The North Face. Items in the VIPeak Reward Catalog will be available while supplies last, so it is possible that an item selected by a Member from the VIPeak Reward Catalog will not be available.
F. The North Face, in its sole discretion, may elect to change the Peak Perks and/or the value of the Peak Points at the beginning of any Peaks Point Year. This could include no longer providing the VIPeak Catalog or changing the valuation of the Reward Certificate.
