By using this webpage you represent that you have reviewed and understand the terms and conditions set out therein and that you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

The Frequent Steeper™ Program (“Program”) is a free rewards program offered by DAVIDsTEA Inc. (“DAVIDsTEA”, “we” and “our”) to its customers located in the US and Canada. The Program gives you the opportunity to earn and redeem Frequent Steeper™ points and rewards at DAVIDsTEA stores and online.
Please carefully read these terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”).
By creating an account or accessing, participating in or using the Program, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and by all terms incorporated by reference. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions or other terms incorporated by reference, do not participate in this Program.
Membership in the Program (“Membership”) is free. No purchase is necessary. To participate, you must be a US or Canadian legal resident, 13 years of age or older, and must obtain the consent of your parent or legal guardian if you are under the age of majority and such consent is a requirement in the jurisdiction of your residence. Program Membership is not available to corporations, businesses, charities, partnerships, enterprises or anyone other than an individual, unless written approval is received in advance from DAVIDsTEA in its sole discretion. There is a limit of one Membership per individual. Employees, officers, directors, agents and representatives of DAVIDsTEA and its affiliates are not eligible for Membership.
There are two (2) ways to enroll in the Program:
Other technology for enrolling and participating in the Program may be approved by DAVIDsTEA from time to time.
The Card is not a credit card, gift card or other prepaid or stored value card. It is a Membership card for the Program. Points earned under the Program are not stored on the Card and you do not need a Card to shop at DAVIDsTEA or to accumulate points. Lost or stolen Cards may be replaced at no charge at any of our stores.
After enrolling, you are responsible for updating the e-mail address associated with your account, which you can do by logging into your online account at www.davidstea.com. If you do not provide us your current e-mail address, or we are otherwise unable to contact you at the e-mail address you provide, we are not responsible for notifying you of any developments relevant to the Program.
Under the Program, for every dollar (see section 20 below for your applicable currency) spent on DAVIDsTEA merchandise online at www.davidstea.com or in DAVIDsTEA retail stores, you will receive 1 Frequent Steeper™ point when you provide or check out with the e-mail address that is associated with your Program account (see section 8 below for exclusions). The number of points awarded will be calculated based on the rounded-up amount closest to the net amount invoiced and paid.
We may also offer bonus points for promotions or events from time to time. In such circumstance, the bonus points offer would apply instead of the one-point-for-one-dollar formula. For example, if we have a 3x points offer on a particular product, a Member would get 3 points for every U.S. or Canadian dollar spent instead of the usual 1 point.
Before completing your purchase, you must provide your Frequent Steeper™ registered e-mail address or present your Frequent Steeper™ Card to have any points credited to your account. Provided that you are a member at the time of purchase, you may also register your points 24 hours after your purchase, by contacting DAVIDsTEA customer service as indicated below in section 24 (“Customer Service”) and including your receipt number in the body of your message.
Points have no cash value and can only be redeemed for Rewards (as defined in section 5). Points cannot be redeemed on shipping fees. Points are never redeemable for cash, for another product (unless expressly permitted by DAVIDsTEA), for gift cards or for e-gift certificates and cannot be used as payment for any in-store services.
You will earn one (1) Reward as described in section 5 below for every 100 points accumulated in your Program account. Every time you reach a 100-point level, DAVIDsTEA will within 24 hours automatically convert these 100 points into one (1) Reward. We will then send an e-mail to the e-mail address associated with your account to advise you when you earn a Reward. Your earned Reward will also appear in your Program account in the Rewards zone. The converted points will at the same time be automatically deducted from your account and they will no longer be visible in your current points balance. A Reward cannot be earned for less than 100 points.
For example, if you earn 290 points after one qualified purchase, you will receive within 24 hours two (2) Rewards in your Program account and your points balance will be at 90 points.
You will have 60 days after your Reward appears in your Program account to redeem your earned Reward. The reward expires on the 60th day at 11:59:59PM EST. Earned Rewards can be redeemed in two ways:
You are not obligated to redeem an earned Reward during an online purchase session during checkout or in-stores and you may do so at your convenience during the 60-day period.
Under this Program, a reward ("Reward") is your choice of one of the following items:
Other Rewards may be offered by DAVIDsTEA from time to time in its sole discretion. DAVIDsTEA makes no guarantee that your Reward choice will be available at the time you make your selection. If your Reward choice is not available, we will take reasonable efforts to provide an equivalent item.
Rewards are non-transferable, have no cash value (unless required by law) and cannot be sold, returned or exchanged for points, cash, another Reward, products, gift cards or e-gift certificates. DAVIDsTEA is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged Cards or Rewards. DAVIDsTEA is not responsible for any taxes incurred by customers or their guests. Some Rewards may only be available to residents of a particular country (e.g., US only or Canada only). Rewards are subject to change, alteration, substitution, or termination by DAVIDsTEA at its sole discretion at any time.
In the event a Reward arrives damaged, you received the wrong Reward, or a Reward you ordered is missing from your shipment, you have 7 days following your receipt of the shipment to contact DAVIDsTEA Customer Service. Otherwise, Rewards will be deemed accepted as is and may not be returned or exchanged.
If DAVIDsTEA authorizes you to return a Reward after you have taken possession of it, then your Reward will be re-credited in your account.
You may have only one Program account. You can view online your current point balance, your earned Rewards, as well as any point activity in your Membership account. You may also obtain this information by asking one of our employees in-store. To view your balance online, simply log in to your online account. Your Frequent Steeper™ page is your destination for everything related to the Program and your Membership, including viewing your current points balance and available Rewards earned, redeeming Rewards and gifts, and learning about your Program benefits. This page can be accessed by logging into your online account at www.davidstea.com.
If DAVIDsTEA accepts a product return and refunds you for any item you purchased for which you received Frequent Steeper™ points, then:
Special offers may be made to members from time to time, and bonus points may be awarded during a limited time when purchasing certain products and services, at the conditions stipulated at that time. As well, special offers could be made to members based on their profile, their needs, their geographical location, or their past participation in the Program.
Frequent Steeper™ points cannot be earned or redeemed for any of the following: (i) the purchase of e-gift cards, gift cards, or prepaid cards, (ii) a deposit (e.g., a water bottle deposit, as it is not a purchase), (iii) cash back, (iv) gifts with purchases, (v) applicable taxes, (vi) delivery and shipping charges, (vii) purchases made through third parties in their locations or online (e.g. Loblaws, Provigo, Amazon or eBay), (viii) points earned in a manner not permitted by these Terms and Conditions or any offer as determined in our sole discretion, (ix) any other product or service that may not legally be offered in your jurisdiction in connection with the Program, or (x) any other products or service that we may specify from time to time or where prohibited by law.
As a member, you are eligible to obtain Super Steeper status. Super Steeper status is unrelated to your number of accumulated points and is conferred every time you spend $400 in eligible dollars (see paragraph 8) during a Program Year. You must register your eligible spending in your Program account, so we can track your eligibility for Super Steeper status. See section 20 below for your applicable currency. “Program Year” means a 12-month period starting on the date of your first purchase under the Program as a registered Frequent Steeper™ member. Your Super Steeper status will be valid for the Program Year in which you qualified as such and for the following full Program Year. After that, your Super Steeper status will expire, although you may qualify again as a Super Steeper as provided above.
For example, suppose you enroll in the Program on September 14th, 2018 and make your first purchase under the Program on October 22nd, 2018. The first applicable Program Year will be from October 22nd, 2018 to October 21st, 2019. If you attain Super Steeper status on August 1st, 2019, your VIP status will be applicable until October 21st, 2020, i.e. for (a) the remaining period of time of your first Program Year from August 1st, 2019 to October 21st, 2019, plus (b) the following Program Year starting on October 22nd, 2019 and ending on October 21st, 2020.
As a Super Steeper, you will have access to exclusive VIP perks as they may be offered from time to time through e-mail notification to the e-mail address associated with your account. These perks may include:
“Swag” is non-sellable DAVIDsTEA branded merchandise specific to VIPs under the Program and are subject to the following conditions:
It's our hope that you accumulate points on a regular basis. All unredeemed points will automatically expire if you do not engage in point activity associated with your Membership account (through purchase or redemption) for 12 months or more. (As provided in section 4 above; unredeemed Rewards will already have expired by that time.) If you have questions regarding the date of your last point activity or your last purchase, you may check your Membership account balance online or ask us by contacting DAVIDsTEA Customer Service.
Before you reach twelve (12) months of inactivity (meaning that no points have been awarded or converted into Rewards during that period), we will send an e-mail to the address associated with your account advising you that if no transaction is made before the date of expiration provided (“Expiration Date”), the points in your account will expire and will be cancelled at such time. This inactivity e-mail notice will be sent to the e-mail address associated with your account between thirty (30) to sixty (60) days before your points are cancelled at the Expiration Date. If there is no activity at the Expiration Date, your points in your member account will be automatically cancelled.
Even if your points expire, your account will remain open and you will continue to receive communications by e-mail related to the Program and DAVIDsTEA (subject to section 14). You will be able to reactivate your Program account and Card (if you have one) and thereby recommence earning new points under the Program. Reactivating an account or a Card will not restore cancelled points.
In addition, points and Rewards will automatically be cancelled if your Membership is suspended, revoked or otherwise terminated for reasons further detailed in section16.
