Both the Card and loyalty number are issued for the sole and personal use of the customer and may under no circumstances be sold, lent or transferred, nor used for any other purposes than those defined by AL-FUTTAIM SONS CO LLC in the present Terms & conditions.

ARTICLE 3 – POINT MONITORING
The Customer may consult his/her points balance upon simple request in store in United Arab Emirates, by getting with Customer Service or by viewing their customer profile on the KIABI website.
Points are generated and visible the day after making a purchase in store.
For any claim concerning the points balance and relating to purchases made in store, the Customer should visit the store where he/she made his/her purchases, along with his/her Card and proof of purchases, or contact Customer Service by any means of contact indicated on the KIABI website.
Happy Points accumulated on the Card are valid for 18 months unless the customer reaches the level of 1200 points.
ARTICLE 4 – USE OF THE LOYALTY DISCOUNT
Where the Customer has accumulated at least 1200 points on his/her loyalty card, he/she receives a loyalty discount of 15% for a single purchase to be made in any KIABI store in United Arab Emirates or on the KIABI website within 3 months from the date when 1200 points have been reached.
The Customer will be informed of his/her eligibility for the discount by email/SMS or when making a purchase in store.
After the loyalty discount is used, the points balance of the Customer will be debited by 1200 points. The Customer will keep points accumulated beyond 1200. The new points balance will be available in store or in the customer’s account on the KIABI website 48 hours after using the discount.
The loyalty discount does not apply to articles with prices that have been reduced during discounts or sales. The 3-month term of validity of the 15% loyalty discount will not be extended if sales or discounts happen within it.
During sales, the Customer will be entitled to request, and only in store, to receive a discount on non-sale articles. In this instance, if the Customer wishes to buy products in a promotion, the sales advisor may make two separate transactions; one for the purchase of articles in a promotion, and the other for non-discounted articles. The cashier will be entitled to request that the Customer make two separate payments.
In such instance as a Customer should have the equivalent of several loyalty discounts, namely a points balance equal to or in excess of 2400 points, he/she may not accumulate these discounts and benefit from, for instance, a 30% discount. Each 15% discount should be applied over two separate purchases. Should the Customer request reimbursement of the article over which he/she has a loyalty discount, the 1200 points having given right to the discount will not be credited. However, in the event of an exchange, the Customer will once more benefit from a discount of 15% over the new article. If the Customer has received the 15% discount over several articles, returning one of the articles will not remove the entitlement to a discount over other articles, but the points balance will be debited by the number of points corresponding to the value of the returned article.
The Customer can use the loyalty discount of 15% over the purchase of his/her choice in any store in the United Arab Emirates, 48 hours after the date when he/she has accumulated 1200 points over his/her Card or loyalty number. For this, it is sufficient to notify the sales assistant and present the Card at the same time.
Purchases made with a loyalty discount will also lead to the conventional accumulation of points as per the same terms and conditions.
ARTICLE 6 – CHANGE OF CONTACT DETAILS
Any change in the email or mobile number or name of the Customer should be notified by the Customer to the KIABI store of his/her choice in the United Arab Emirates, by visiting any KIABI store in the UAE or by contacting the Customer Service through all the means indicated for such purpose on the KIABI website.
ARTICLE 7 – WITHDRAWAL, THEFT AND LOSS OF THE CARD

Subject to having received information necessary for identification of the Card (surname, forename and/or email address and/or number of the lost or stolen card), the Customer may also request that the accumulated points on the lost, stolen or damaged card be transferred to the new card. Once the points have been transferred to a new card, the previous card will be definitively deactivated.
