Definitions
“You,” “Your,” and “Participant” refer to the participant who registers with Irving Rewards to create an Irving Rewards Account. A Participant must be eighteen (18) years old or older.

“Irving” refers to Irving Oil Marketing, Inc., the owner, sponsor and administrator of the Irving Rewards Program.

“Irving Energy” means Highlands Fuel Delivery, LLC, an affiliate of Irving and provider of home heating fuels.

“AE Robinson” means A. E. Robinson Oil Company, a Maine corporation, for so long as it is a third-party Earn Partner participant in the Irving Rewards Program.

“Earn and Redeem Partners” means Fuel Sellers, AE Robinson and Irving Energy through which Participants may make Qualifying Purchases to earn Irving Reward Discounts and/or redeem or expend Discounts subject to the terms of the Irving Rewards Program.

“Irving Rewards Account” is an electronic record maintained and administered by Irving for you upon your registration with Irving Rewards reflecting your participation in the Irving Rewards Program, the Discounts you have earned in the Irving Rewards Program, and the Discounts you have redeemed or expended through Fuel purchases. Your Irving Rewards Account balance will be shown in your Account Summary, found on the theirving.com/rewards Website (the “Account Summary”). Your Irving Rewards Account is not transferable and may not be sold, combined with, or shared with another person or account. Irving reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Irving Rewards Account if you violate these Participant Terms and Conditions, misrepresent or falsify material information, or take any other action that Irving in its discretion determines is detrimental to the Irving Rewards Program.

“Irving Rewards Card” is the card designated and issued by Irving for use in the Irving Rewards Program, linked to your Irving Rewards Account after registration in the Irving Rewards Program, and to be used by you in making certain Qualifying Purchases to earn Discounts under the Irving Rewards Program.

“Irving Rewards Program” is a motor fuel discount program that lets you obtain discounts (“Discounts”) off the price per gallon of Irving motor fuels (“Fuel”) purchased from participating Irving-branded retail motor fuel dealers (“Fuel Sellers”). The Irving Rewards Program is not a credit card, gift card, or stored value card program of any kind. Irving records the Discounts earned on your Qualifying Purchases and also records Discounts redeemed or expended through Fuel purchases based on data received from the Earn and Redeem Partners. Earn and Redeem Partners will be expected to submit such data to Irving or its designated agent promptly after the Qualifying Purchase and redemption of any Discounts, but Irving is not responsible for any failure to do so. Earned Rewards, “Earned Value” and Discount credits have no cash or other monetary value.  Discounts may not be redeemed until actually credited to and reflected in your Irving Rewards Account. Discounts are not transferable. You are solely responsible for checking your Irving Rewards Account regularly to ensure that all earned Discounts are properly credited. If you dispute the calculation of your Discounts or your Irving Rewards Account balance, you must notify Irving in writing at the address below within thirty (30) days of the date of posting of the disputed transaction to your Account Summary. Otherwise, the Account Summary will be deemed to be correct and binding on you. Irving’s decision in resolving any such dispute will be final and binding.

“Use Period” means the period in which Discounts may be redeemed and continues until such time as Irving modifies, amends, or terminates the redemption period for any Discount or discontinues the Irving Rewards Program.

Calculation and Use of Fuel Discounts

Participants may earn and redeem Irving Rewards Discounts as set forth below and as may otherwise be specified in specific offers or terms as described in the Irving Rewards Website or in other material provided in connection with a specific offer or promotion. Subject to these Participant Terms and Conditions, you may earn Discounts as follows:

  1. Irving Fuel Purchases:  Every time you purchase Fuel from a participating Fuel Seller after first swiping your Irving Rewards Card through the participating Fuel Seller’s POS system, your Irving Rewards Account will accrue value equal to the number of gallons of Fuel you purchase (up to a maximum of Thirty (30) gallons in any one purchase transaction) (“Irving Fuel Earned Value”).

    Every time your Irving Fuel Earned Value reaches Fifty (50) Gallons you will earn a .10 per gallon reward available on your next single purchase of Fuel (up to a maximum of Twenty (20) Gallons) from a participating Fuel Seller when using your Irving Rewards Card, (the “Irving Fuel Discount”). Rewards are generally available for use in approximately 30 minutes after the required Irving Fuel Earned Value threshold is reached. If your Irving Fuel Earned Value exceeds the 50 gallon threshold, the remained will be applied to your next fuel savings reward. Irving Fuel Discounts will be available for use for the remainder of the month in which the reward is earned, plus an additional 60 days thereafter, at which point they will expire.  All rewards expire at the end of the Use Period.

  2. In-Store Purchases:  Every time you make a qualifying in-store purchase from a participating Fuel Seller after first swiping your Irving Rewards Card through the participating Fuel Seller’s POS system, your Irving Rewards Account will accrue value equal to the dollar amount of your purchase for qualifying items (certain items, such as alcohol, tobacco, lottery, postage, money orders, gift cards and pre-paid cards, licenses, propane, car wash, municipal trash/recycling bags, and other items as may be designated by Irving or restricted by state law do not qualify and are excluded) (the “In-Store Earned Value”).

    Every time your In-Store Earned Value reaches Fifty Dollars ($50) of In-Store Qualifying Purchases using your Irving Rewards Card you will earn a .05 per gallon reward  available on your next single purchase of Fuel (up to a maximum of Twenty (20) Gallons) from a participating Fuel Seller when using your Irving Rewards Card (the “In-Store Fuel Discount”). Rewards are generally available for use in approximately 30 minutes after the required In-Store Fuel Earned Value threshold is reached.  If your In-Store Earned Value exceeds the $50 threshold, the remained will be applied to your next fuel savings reward. In-Store Fuel Discounts will be available for use for the remainder of the month in which the reward is earned, plus an additional 60 days thereafter, at which point they will expire.  All rewards expire at the end of the Use Period.

  3. Irving Debit Pay:  You may link your registered Irving Rewards Card to your bank account. Once linked, your Irving Rewards Card may be used to pay for Fuel purchases as an ACH debit payment from your linked bank account. Every time you purchase Fuel from a participating Fuel Seller using your Irving Rewards Card as an Irving Debit Pay payment method, you will automatically receive a Discount of .06 on every gallon purchased in that single Fuel purchase transaction (the “Irving Debit Pay Discount”). There is no carry forward of an Irving Debit Pay Discount.

  4. Irving Debit Pay Introductory Offer:  For the first 90 days after you link your registered Irving Rewards Card to your bank account, you will be eligible for an additional .04 rebate on every gallon of Fuel purchased using your Irving Rewards Card as an Irving Debit Pay payment method.  The .04 per gallon Irving Debit Pay Introductory Offer rebate will be reflected as an adjustment to the charge for your qualifying Fuel purchase when your linked bank account is debited and will not be available as an automatic Discount at the pump.

    The Irving Debit Pay ACH debit payment feature is available only at participating Fuel Sellers with compatible POS systems.  Information regarding the Irving Debit Pay payment feature may be found at https://secure.paymentcard.com/faq1.php  Third party terms and conditions may apply.

  5. Irving Energy Home Heating Fuel Purchases:  Irving Energy home heat customers in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont may link their registered Irving Rewards Card to their Irving Energy home heat account.

(Residential accounts only. Only direct purchases of home heating fuel from Irving Energy are eligible. Product credits, transfers, or adjustments are not eligible or credited as Qualifying Purchases toward Irving Energy Earned Value. Credit toward Irving Energy Earned value is earned on delivery).

An Irving Energy Discount of .05 is earned for each fifty gallons of home heating fuel delivered. By way of example, a delivery of 100 gallons of home heating fuel from Irving Energy on a linked account will yield an Irving Energy Discount of .10 on your next single Fuel purchase using your Irving Rewards Card after the required Irving Energy Earned Value is reflected in your Irving Rewards Account, and a delivery of 150 gallons of home heating fuel from Irving Energy will yield an Irving Energy Discount of .15 on your next single Fuel purchase using your Irving Rewards Card after the required Irving Energy Earned Value is reflected in your Irving Rewards Account. There is no pro-rata reward for partial increments.  Irving Energy Discounts will be available for use for the remainder of the month in which the reward was earned and credited to your account, plus an additional 60 days thereafter, at which point they will expire.  All rewards expire at the end of the Use Period.

Discounts may be applied to Fuel purchases up to the Fuel Seller’s posted price per gallon of the applicable Fuel and up to the gallon limitation as may be imposed by Irving. Discounts are non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash or in-store merchandise. The Fuel Seller may impose restrictions on combining Discounts with other Fuel Seller promotional programs. Any Fuel Seller’s restrictions affecting the Discounts may be changed without prior notice from Irving. To the extent any such restrictions cause the modification or termination of a Discount, it may be reflected in your Account Summary, however, Irving will not be responsible for any failure to do so, and no compensation will be owed to you due to any such modification or termination. If a Fuel Seller ceases to participate in the Irving Rewards Program, Discounts will no longer be useable in connection with Fuel purchases from such Fuel Seller. The Irving Rewards Program may be modified or cancelled at any time, without prior notice, and all Discounts shall thereupon be null and void and no compensation shall be owed to you for unexpended Discounts.
