For every 1 TL spent you will earn 1 point.

Purchases include purchases of regular and sale priced merchandise. Purchases at stores other than the Eligible Channels will not qualify for points (even if you purchase adidas products). If you return purchased items, the points earned by those items will be deducted from your point's total.

In addition to earning points for purchases, you can also earn points for certain interactions with us. The number of points available will be as set out at www.adidas.com.tr. These include but are not limited to:

Welcome bonus: When you first successfully register as a member of the Club, we will automatically credit your account with points to thank you for joining.

Product reviews: You can earn points by posting a review of adidas products on the Website or App. You hereby consent to your product reviews being publicly viewable. You may only be awarded points for a maximum of 10 reviews per calendar year.

Birthday bonus: You may be eligible for bonus points on your birthday based on your tier. This will be automatically credited to your membership account. Birthday bonus points will be awarded only once during a calendar year.

From time to time, we, in our sole discretion, may change, discontinue, or add interactions where you can earn points and change the number of points earned, with or without prior notification to you.

You must provide your adidas membership identification (email address or membership ID) in the stores or be logged into your adidas account on the Website or App to receive the eligible points for your purchases or interactions. In the event, you are unable to receive eligible points due to not being logged in or your identification not being accepted as proof, you may contact the adidas customer services team www.adidas.com.tr with the required proof to redeem the points for your purchases or interactions.

Existing adidas account holders can start earning points from the day they have been migrated to the Club, and no prior transactions or interactions will be eligible for points. New members will start earning points from the date they register for the Club, and no prior transactions or interactions will be eligible for Points save that when you have provided your email address (for the purpose of being contacted in relation to Club membership) in our Stores whilst making a purchase and you subsequently join the Club, we shall award you the points for that purchase to your Club membership. Membership start dates for the Club may vary for members depending on their account type.

4.     EXPIRATION OF POINTS

Club points will remain valid for 12 months. This period will always finish at the end of the month. If you earned points on June 9, 2019, they will expire on June 30, 2020, unless adidas explicitly states otherwise. Points cannot be transferred between members. Points have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for cash.

 5.     CLUB TIERS

Creators Club has four separate tiers. You can move up through the different tiers by earning points.

Challenger is the entry-level tier for members with 0–499 points. You just need to register for the Club to be part of this tier, and no purchase is required.

Playmaker is tier 2 for members with 500–1.499 points. Game-Changer is tier 3 for members with 1.500–4,999 points. Icon is tier 4 for members with 5,000 points or more.

You can climb to the higher tiers of Playmaker, Gamechanger, and Icon by accumulating the number of points mentioned above within 12 months of the end of the month of registration or current tier entry (the “Membership Year”). At higher tiers (e.g. Playmaker, Gamechanger, and Icon), you can access even greater benefits. If tier upgrades are achieved by acquiring points through purchases of our products, we reserve the right to delay this upgrade for a period that is equal to the applicable return period for the purchased product(s).

You must meet the requalification requirements at the end of your membership year in order to remain at your current tier. If not, you will be downgraded to the tier below. Returns can cause you to drop down multiple tiers. For example, if you return an order or product, the points earned will be deducted, which could cause you to drop by that number of points.

6.      TIER REQUALIFICATION

If you are in the Playmaker, Gamechanger, or Icon tier and you do not earn enough points during the current requalification period, you will be downgraded to the next tier down, regardless of the number of qualification points you have accumulated by this date.

The requalification period starts on the date you reached a new tier and ends 12 months later, always at the end of the month. The number of points you need in order to requalify for your current tier is equal to the minimum point balance needed to enter that tier.

Points earned after your last tier entry will count towards requalification points. The new requalification period will start on the exact date of that tier upgrade and end 12 months later at the end of the month. After a tier upgrade, your requalification points will be set to 0.

If you do not earn enough points for your tier during the requalification period, you will be downgraded. The downgrade will take place after the last day of the requalification period, which is always at the end of the month.

If you are downgraded, your new requalification period will start on the exact date of your downgrade and end 12 months later at the end of the month, unless you upgrade during this period. After a tier downgrade, your requalification points will be set to 0. If a member does not earn enough points for their tier within the requalification period, they will be downgraded. The downgrade will take place after the last day of the requalification period, which is always at the end of the month.

If a member is downgraded, their new requalification period will start on the exact date of their downgrade and end 12 months later at the end of the month, unless they upgrade during this period. After a tier downgrade, a member’s requalification points will be set to 0.

7.     REWARDS

Entry and progress through each of the above-mentioned tiers will unlock a set of new rewards for members as set out here www.adidas.com.tr

You will have access to the rewards in your current tier and the tiers below them. For example, a Game-Changer will have access to the rewards from the Game-Changer tier as well as Playmaker and Challenger tiers (except for the lower tiers’ entry discount vouchers).

Certain rewards will be conditional upon you agreeing to separate terms and conditions applicable to that reward which will be made available to you when redeeming that reward. In addition, the following terms and conditions apply to the following specific rewards:
