Member Rewards programme.
a. All stars and subsequent rewards can only be dispensed to the introducer if the membership product value has been received by Victoria Leisure, so ideally as the best value deals are ‘single payment’ memberships, we can credit these almost immediately. Direct Debit monthly payments can only be claimed when 12 months have been collected, but will be attributed to you at time of sign up.
b. A membership claimed for a Stars Rewards level, cannot be claimed on again. E.G. if any membership is repeated or converted into a larger membership. Therefore if 1 month, 3 months or 6 months is claimed, and the new members go on to buy a further term or longer term, this cannot be counted.
c. It is the responsibility of the introducer to ensure that reception has logged the ‘new membership names and product value’ against their name and membership number, and must be done no later than 4 weeks after they have commenced their membership. NB Victoria Leisure under Data protection will not divulge any new members specific spend value, but can confirm at any time what Star level bracket you are within, and what spend value will take you into the next bracket.

h. The programme can be changed, altered or withdrawn by the promoter, with no obligation to reimburse part of full value of the previous scheme.
