Operators must also be active customers of the Sponsor. Void where prohibited by law.
Enrolling in the Program
Operators may enroll in the Program at www.brandpointsplus.ca (the “Website”). To join, an operator must click on the “Click Here” link on the Login page and follow the online instructions to create a Brand Points PLUS account (“Account”) OR, register with their Greenbridge Foodservice Member Distributor Sales Representative (DSR). Once Operators register, they will be enrolled in the program. The number of points collected by the Operator will be recorded and tracked in the Operator’s Account. An operator must have a unique valid email address to create an account. Limit one (1) Account per Operation. The person who is the authorized email account holder of the email address indicated when registering for an Account will be deemed the participant. By enrolling in the program, operator certifies that the membership and participation in the program does not violate any policies or guidelines of their employer. Any changes to the operator’s account information may be updated on the website in the operator’s profile. To cancel an account, the operator may contact BPPca Customer Service. By enrolling in the program, operators are consenting to receive occasional emails, electronic newsletters or communications regarding the program and the GFSM. Operators who purchase participating products and have special contracts or pricing, or are under bid with the participating Vendors may be ineligible to earn points on those products under contract.
Operators earn points by purchasing qualifying products from participating GFSM. Participating GFSM will automatically track purchases of qualifying products and submit monthly purchase reports to the Program for the purpose of awarding points to Operators. Operators must voluntarily enroll in the program at www.brandpointsplus.ca to validate points earned. It is the responsibility of the Operator to confirm enrollment in the program in order to view point balance and redeem points for merchandise or service rewards available at www.brandpointsplus.ca. Operators must be active customers of the Sponsor and will forfeit all points when they are no longer a customer of a distributor member in the program and/or have no qualifying purchase activity after 12 months.
Once purchase reports are submitted by the GFSM, the validation of the purchases and potential points earned will be subject to verification by BPPca Customer Service whose decisions on the outcome are in its sole discretion and are final and binding. Points will not be awarded until after the verification process is complete. The Sponsor and its Vendors reserve the right to determine which products will be included as a participating product and eligible to earn points. The Sponsor and its Vendors also reserve the right to change the number of points awarded for purchases at any time during the Program. Points are non-transferable and may not be sold or combined with other Operators Accounts. Any attempt to sell, combine or transfer points will result in disqualification from the Program and forfeiture of all points in any Operator’s Account. Each Operator is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of his/her account and is encouraged to check their Account regularly. If an Operator believes that points were not properly accrued, the Operator must notify BPPca Customer Service within 15 days of the day the deposit had been entered on the Website. The Sponsor and its Vendors may offer special offers throughout the Program that may include bonus points or other additional incentives.
