New Seasons Market developed the Neighbor Rewards Program (the “Program”) to show appreciation for our customers who shop with us and support the shared values of good food, community, and sustainability. By registering to participate in the Program, you acknowledge that you have reviewed these Terms and Conditions and agree to the following rules governing the Program.
Neighbor Rewards Program Overview
The Program is a loyalty program sponsored by New Seasons Market LLC (“New Seasons Market”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) through which customers can earn and receive Points through qualifying purchases at our locations. Program participants (hereinafter, “you” or “your”), may earn and receive Points with the choice to redeem for Rewards or store them for later use. You can redeem your accumulated Rewards at a New Seasons Market location. We may also offer opportunities for you to give your Rewards to a featured business or nonprofit organization. You can track Points and Rewards by signing into your account at www.newseasonsmarket.com/rewards.
Participation Details and Information
- Participation in the Program is subject to these Terms and Conditions and any supplemental rules or policies (“Program Rules”) that we may adopt from time to time. The interpretation and application of the Program Rules are at our sole discretion.
- We have the right to change, limit, modify, amend, or cancel the Program, Program Rules, Points, Program Rewards, participation requirements, etc. at any time, with or without notice. Any such changes will be posted on our website.
- You are responsible for remaining knowledgeable as to any changes we may make to the Program, Program Rules, or to these Terms and Conditions, unless we are otherwise required to provide notice to you by law. The most current version of these Terms and Conditions will be available at www.newseasonsmarket.com/rewardsterms and will supersede all previous versions of these Terms and Conditions. By continuing to participate in the Program, you agree that you will be bound by these Terms and Conditions, unless some other action is required under applicable law.
Neighbor Rewards Program Registration
- Only individuals 18 years of age or older are eligible to participate in the Program. Each individual may maintain only one account. Households may share an account.
- To earn and redeem Points and Rewards, you must be a registered customer of the Program (“Enrolled Customer”) as described in these Terms and Conditions. If at any time your registration is terminated, you will not be allowed to earn or redeem Points and may be required to forfeit any unredeemed Points.
- To enroll in the Program:
When at one of our locations, type your mobile phone number into the pin pad at checkout and select “yes” when prompted to enroll. You may also enroll via SMS by texting “Join” to 54967. You will receive a text message on your phone with instructions to complete your text opt in. If you enroll by entering your mobile phone number into the pin pad at checkout, your Neighbor Rewards account will be automatically linked to the payment card you use to complete the purchase at that checkout (“Card Link”). Card Link enables all future eligible purchases to automatically accrue Points to your Neighbor Rewards account thereafter without needing to enter a phone number to begin future transactions. Card Link does not apply to purchases made with a contactless (i.e., Apple Pay or Google Pay) gift card or EBT forms of payment, or to payments made through Instacart.

General Terms and Conditions
- We and our respective related companies, parents, affiliates, and respective agents and their agencies, suppliers and other companies involved in the development and execution of the Program (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Releasees”) are not responsible for problems related to any of the equipment or programming associated with the Program or utilized by you or any Enrolled Customer, for any human error, for any interruption, deletion, omission, defect, or line failure of any telephone or internet network or electronic transmission, for problems relating to computer equipment, software, inability to access the website, or for any other technical or non-technical error or malfunction. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE, SHALL ANY OF THE RELEASEES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL PROGRAM DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE PROGRAM, NEIGHBOR REWARDS, OR MERCHANDISE OFFERED THROUGH THE PROGRAM, EVEN IF ANY OR ALL OF THE FOREGOING OR ANY OF THEIR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF RELEASEES FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE PROGRAM, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF $100 OR THE EQUIVALENT AMOUNT OF POINTS OR REWARDS AT ISSUE. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION DO NOT LIMIT OR EXCLUDE LIABILITY FOR GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT, OR FOR ANY OTHER MATTERS IN WHICH LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. ADDITIONALLY, SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
- New Seasons Market, its joint ventures, officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, affiliates, parent companies, successors, assigns, and service providers, are not responsible for any products or services offered by any current, future or past Neighbor Rewards partners. You agree to rely solely on the manufacturers’ warranties, if any, for any products redeemed through this Program. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWABLE BY LAW, NEW SEASONS MARKET SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES OFFERED BY ANY NEIGHBOR REWARDS SUPPLIER, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long any implied warranty lasts, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.
- Dispute Resolution / Binding Arbitration. Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with us concerning the Program and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
- Opt-Out. You may opt-out of the arbitration procedures and waiver of class and representative proceedings by sending a written letter to NeighborRewards@newseasonsmarket.com. Within 30 calendar days of your original agreement to these Terms and Conditions (including the first time you sign up for the Program). Such letter must include, at a minimum: (i) your name; (ii) your mailing address; and (iii) your request to be excluded from the arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Section. In the event that you opt-out consistent with these procedures, all other sections of these Terms and Conditions apply.
- Dispute Notice. In the event of a dispute between you and New Seasons Market, you or New Seasons Market must first send to the other party a notice of the dispute that includes a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to us should be sent to NeighborRewards@newseasonsmarket.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by certified mail to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you, or via email if we do not have any such address on file. Within 60 calendar days upon either party receiving the Dispute Notice, the parties shall engage in a good faith informal dispute resolution conference, whether by phone, email, or other channel as agreed between the parties. You and New Seasons Market will work in good faith to schedule the informal conference at a mutually convenient time. If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the informal dispute resolution conference, but you shall also fully participate in such discussions. The arbitrator may dismiss any arbitration brought without first proceeding through the informal dispute resolution conference. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the informal dispute resolution process required by this paragraph.
- Arbitration Procedure. In the event the parties cannot resolve the dispute via the informal dispute resolution procedures above, and except for small claims disputes in which you or New Seasons Market seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county where you reside or disputes in which you or New Seasons Market seek injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and New Seasons Market each waive the right to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to the Program resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to the Program will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Multnomah County Oregon in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules”) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason. You and New Seasons Market agree that the Program affects interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (“FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and Conditions, and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms and Conditions. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and New Seasons Market agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee, unless otherwise required by law, and New Seasons Market will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by New Seasons Market, New Seasons Market will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and New Seasons Market agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Oregon and the United States sitting in Multnomah County Oregon have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. Any and all claims and judgments awarded during arbitration must be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, and in no event shall attorneys’ fees be recoverable. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Terms and Conditions, or the rights and obligations in connection with the Program, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Oregon, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions.
- These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or other arrangements, understandings, and negotiations and discussions, whether oral or written. No waiver of any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed or shall constitute a waiver of any other provisions hereof the Program, nor shall waiver constitute a continuing waiver unless otherwise expressly provided.
- These Terms and Conditions and your use of the Program will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Oregon, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction to apply. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or is otherwise subject to the disclaimers above will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Oregon in Multnomah County.
- If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be severed from the remainder of these Terms and Conditions, which will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
- Our designation of featured businesses and nonprofit organizations to which you can give Rewards does not constitute our endorsement of such businesses or organizations. We reserve the right to change or discontinue the option to give Rewards to featured businesses or nonprofit organizations at any time.
- The Program will continue until terminated by New Seasons Market.
- You may terminate your participation in the Program at any time by contacting us at NeighborRewards@newseasonsmarket.com.
- The Program and benefits are offered at our sole discretion. We are the final authority for membership, Reward issuance, and Reward adjustment determinations.
- Noncompliance with Neighbor Rewards limitations set forth in these Terms and Conditions and Program Rules is a violation and may result in your removal from the Program and potential forfeiture of unredeemed points.
- If you have any questions about the Program or otherwise need to provide notice to us, please contact us at NeighborRewards@newseasonsmarket.com.
- These Terms and Conditions are dated September 5, 2023.
