Point calculations are based on dollars spent at checkout for Purchases. Points may also be earned for Social Media Sharing & Referrals. No points are earned for payment of sales tax, shipping, and handling costs, or other fees or services. When qualifying purchases are returned, points will be deducted from the Account Holder's Rewards Program point balance in an amount equal to the number of points earned for the portion of the purchase returned. Reward Program points have no cash value and do not constitute property of the Account Holder.

As a participant of the Rewards Program the Account Holder will earn Rewards points for purchases as follows:

  • 5 Rewards Program points for every dollar spent on eligible purchases - (5% of purchase price)

Rewards Program points during checkout may be used for any new purchase. Account Holder cannot redeem Rewards Program points for a discount amounting to more than the total amount of purchase. Points are not redeemable for cash.

Every Rewards Program point the Account Holder earns in accordance with this program is redeemable only as a discount towards Account Holder's next purchases of products, solely on the Site, and can be redeemed during the checkout process. When Rewards Program points account has depleted the balance of the order will be paid by the method of payment chosen by the Account Holder.

To redeem Rewards Program points the Account Holder must be logged into their OatesSpecialties.com account. After adding items to the shopping cart and continuing through the checkout process to the payment information section there will be an option for "Use my rewards points". When selected, Account Holder's Rewards Program points will be applied and a discount value deducted from the order total. A purchase discount of $1.00 is applied for every 100 Rewards Program points used from the Account Holder's Rewards point balance.

Rewards Program Points may be taxable, depending on the value of the item and the federal, state, and local tax laws applicable to the Account Holder. Account Holder is solely responsible for reporting such items on their tax returns and paying any associated tax liability.

Reward Program Points expire in 365 days if not used. Points will expire in the order they are earned.
