We are not liable if you lose any Mobil Smiles points because your Card is lost, damaged or defective.
Other Cards in the Mobil Smiles Driver Rewards programme family
We may from time to time issue Other Cards and may invite you to register for that Other Card.
These Terms and Conditions apply to all Other Cards, unless otherwise stated.
Subject to qualifying criteria as per Programme design as outlined on the Website, you may begin to earn Mobil Smiles points as soon as you use your Card. Once your Card has been registered you may also redeem your Mobil Smiles points for Mobil Smiles rewards at Mobil Sites.
The Rules as well as the Terms and Conditions are on the Website so you should always check these and make sure you are up to date. This is your responsibility. Please note that from time to time we will change these Rules as well as the Terms and Conditions and this will be updated on the Website. We will not advise you directly. The first time you use your Card and each time thereafter, you are deemed to agree that the Rules and Terms and Conditions are as shown on the Website at the time of use.
The Programme is available only at participating Mobil Sites in New Zealand.
Your Mobil Smiles points earned as part of our Programme in New Zealand can only be redeemed for Mobil Smiles rewards in New Zealand.
Mobil Smiles points
Mobil Smiles points shall be awarded to you when you present and swipe a valid Card to the cashier of the Mobil Site for the purchase of items as designated from time to time at our absolute discretion (each a "Qualifying Purchase"). Any purchase other than a Qualifying Purchase shall not be considered as a Qualifying Purchase and shall not be awarded any Mobil Smiles points, unless otherwise notified by us.
Mobil Smiles points will not be awarded to purchases made with Commercial Fleetcard, Ruralco card, RD1 Farmsource Card or Mobilcard.
In a case where a Qualifying Purchase was made but was not recorded as Mobil Smiles points on your Mobil Smiles account, you will need to provide proof of purchase, including receipts, for crediting Mobil Smiles points. We reserve the right to accept or reject such proof at our absolute discretion. Please contact Mobil Smiles Customer Service.
From time to time you may receive communications of our promotional offers. Our promotional offer communication will include the terms & conditions relating to these offers.
We reserve the right to determine, vary or change from time to time the type or quantum of Qualifying Purchases and the corresponding number of Mobil Smiles points awarded, without prior notice or assigning any reasons whatsoever. Changes to the Programme will be updated on the Website. Please also refer to clause 21 above.
Once your Mobil Smiles account is awarded Mobil Smiles points corresponding to the Qualifying Purchase, your Mobil Smiles points balance will be shown on your Mobil Smiles account, or please refer to your Mobil Site receipt.
The Mobil Smiles points awarded to your Mobil Smiles account can be transferred to other another registered Mobil Smiles programme member and can be transferred by calling Mobil Smiles Customer Service. Mobil Smiles points have no cash or monetary value.
Mobil Smiles points Expiry
Mobil Smiles points accumulated on your Card do not expire unless you do not make any Qualifying Purchase and earn any Mobil Smiles points within 12 months from the date the last Mobil Smiles points were awarded. If this happens, your Card will be blocked and accumulated Mobil Smiles points will be automatically forfeited without prior notice to you. Please remember that you should always track how many Mobil Smiles points you have available on your Card by checking your Mobil Smiles account.
Once you have registered your Card and accumulated sufficient Mobil Smiles points, subject to meeting the minimum Mobil Smiles points' requirement as outlined on the Website, you may redeem your Mobil Smiles points for Mobil Smiles rewards by swiping your Card prior to processing for payment. Mobil Smiles points cannot be used for or towards the purchase of tobacco products and are excluded from Mobil Smiles rewards redemption. The minimum Mobil Smiles points needed may change during promotional offers or from time to time. Mobil Smiles points cannot be exchanged for cash and no monetary change will be given on a redemption.
Upon redemption of Mobil Smiles rewards, the Mobil Smiles points recorded on your Mobil Smiles account will be debited by the corresponding number of Mobil Smiles points used.
In the event we introduce online shopping as part of the Programme, this service may be subject to additional online shopping terms and conditions provided by us.
We reserve the right to deduct accumulated Mobil Smiles points from your Mobil Smiles account or refuse the redemption of any Mobil Smiles rewards or to recall such redeemed Mobil Smiles rewards under the following circumstances:
Mobil Smiles points are suspected to be fraudulently recorded or obtained;
any Mobil Smiles points erroneously awarded due to system glitches or any other reasons;
any Mobil Smiles points derived from any transaction, which has been cancelled, voided, refunded or reversed.
On occasions, when you buy petrol and/or diesel at a Mobil Site, we may extend to you a discount for that petrol and/or diesel purchase when you present a valid Card to the cashier, or if using pay at pump, at a Mobil Site. The Card must be presented to either the cashier (in store) or pay at pump (outdoors) during the transaction and before payment is finalized, failing which, no discount will be awarded.
If we extend a discount to you for a petrol and/or diesel purchase when you present a valid Card to the cashier, or if using pay at pump, at a Mobil Site, then you cannot combine this with any other petrol and/or diesel discount voucher or arrangement. However, you will be awarded the larger of the discounts being either the discount available with your Card or the value of the other petrol and/or diesel discount voucher or arrangement.
If the Mobil Reward you choose when you redeem your Mobil Smiles points is a discount on petrol and/or diesel, you can combine this with one other petrol and/or diesel discount offer in the same transaction. So you could redeem your Mobil Smiles points together with a petrol and/or diesel discount available with your Card or you could redeem your Mobil Smiles points together with another petrol and/or diesel discount voucher or arrangement.
The conditions relating to the discount will be on the Website. We have the right to determine and change from time to time the discount and the terms and conditions relating to it. Please also refer to clause 21 above.
