You may earn Grwo Points in a variety of ways as indicated through the Platform and Application. You are responsible for ensuring that Grwo Points are properly credited and you should check your account regularly. As of now, you may not purchase, combine or transfer Grwo Points with other members of the Program (“Members”) or any other person, and any attempt to do so may result in disqualification from the Program and forfeiture of all Grwo Points in your account. Grwo reserves the right to change, add or remove rewards, and the methods by which users can earn and redeem Grwo Points, or other awards, for any reason and without notice to you, in its sole discretion and at any time. If you believe that Grwo Points were not properly accrued to your account, please notify Grwo by using the “Contact Us” form on the website within 30 days of when you think the error occurred. Allow 30 days for any claims to be researched and corrected as needed. Grwo’s determination will be final.
You may redeem Grwo Points and other in-platform awards for various rewards (“Rewards”) listed in the Rewards section of the Grwo Platform/Application while supplies last and/or during the time periods specified. You can select any item still available for which you have accumulated sufficient Grwo Points for redemption. To redeem, click the selected item and follow instructions provided to claim the Reward. Initially the Grwo Platform offers three channels to redeem rewards: Encourage, Experiences & Everyday. For some Rewards, for example a “virtual store card“ you may see on your mobile or other device, or receive an email containing, a unique code that you will need to present to a store sales associate to redeem your Reward. Emails will be sent to the email address your employer provides. Other Rewards may require a mailing address to ship the Rewards. You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your contact information in your Account. Grwo has the intent to modify the list of Rewards periodically, and reserves the right to modify the Grwo Point values of the Rewards at any time for any reason. Grwo Points can be used as soon as they are reflected in your Account balance or may be accrued over time for later use prior to expiration or forfeiture, or termination of the Program. Some Rewards may require additional time before they can be fulfilled and other rewards may require certain base level of accrued point balance before being eligible to enter a competition. Grwo Points have no cash value and may only be redeemed for Rewards offered in this Program. Grwo Points earned are not your property and cannot be sold, transferred, or assigned. All redemptions of Grwo Points for Rewards are final. Refunds, exchanges and other issues regarding the redeemed item are governed by the Reward supplier’s terms and conditions applicable to the item, including any warranty, and are not the responsibility of Grwo. For some rewards, Grwo reserves the right to require interaction by the user and/or feedback. Restrictions may apply to certain Rewards. Terms and conditions of Rewards are disclosed on the Platform.
Rewards participating in Grwo are subject to change at any time. Rewards pictured on the Grwo may not necessarily reflect exact colors or models of actual Rewards due to model variations and/or manufacturer’s updates. Some rewards require a current street address for shipment. Grwo reserves the right to substitute merchandise of equal or greater value in place of unavailable merchandise, or to refund Grwo Points that were redeemed for unavailable merchandise.

Grwo may require verification of your achievements through multiple channels. Grwo reserves the right to change its verification process.
Each reward may have its own individual rules as well. In the event of a conflict between the official rules and the individual rules, the individual rules govern.
Rewards are open to active employees of our selected partners and/or customers. Employees of Grwo, the prize providers, and the Prize Benefactor(s) and members of their immediate families, regardless of where they reside, are not eligible to enter.
