Sponsor may change Status level criteria at any time at the Sponsor’s discretion. See Website for full details including Status level benefits and Status level qualifications, including both how to earn and maintain Status.
To participate in Program Rewards, Members must verify their employment with an eligible Approved Retail Chain using one of the methods offered in the Verification area of the Website.
Verifications are valid for up to ninety (90) days. The most recent verification supersedes any prior verification. Final determination of employment and Program eligibility is at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Sponsor may offer Members the opportunity to verify employment using a third-party service with Member’s consent. See Approved Retail Chains list for eligibility.
If not verified using a third-party service, then employment verification for Member requires that Member provide acceptable proof of employment documents, dated within thirty (30) days of submission. For military exceptions, please see Military Duty below.

- The Member’s name must be on the required payment documentation, and it must match the name they provided at the time of Program registration. A shortened name (such as Joe for Joseph) or nickname is an acceptable variation.
- The name of the Accepted Retail Chain where the Member is employed must be the issuer of the payment.
- Date of issuance of the payment must be within the past thirty (30) days from submission.
All other information, including payment amount, bank account numbers and social security number should be blacked out.
Member is solely responsible for marking out this information and Sponsor will not be responsible in any manner for personal information that is not marked out.
Any change to Member’s employment status (including retailer change or store transfer) requires new employment verification.
If a Member has not successfully completed a Learning Activity in the previous 180 days, they are considered inactive and their Credit balance will be reset to zero. The Member’s Account will remain inactive until the Member completes a Learning Activity.
After two years (730 days), inactive accounts may be purged.
Reactivation and the restoring of Credits is done solely at the Sponsor’s discretion on a case-by-case basis.
Members who take a leave of absence from an Approved Retail Chain to fulfill active military duty may continue to enjoy program benefits, including ordering Online Store items, participating in Purchase Programs, entering Drawings and maintaining achieved status levels.
A Member’s ship-out/marching orders may substitute for employment verification provided that the Member satisfies all the eligibility criteria set forth in these Terms at the time of ship-out/marching order receipt. The Member’s ship-out/marching orders should be submitted to Sponsor’s employment verification team for review and approval per the instructions at the Website prior to the Member ordering items from the Online Store, Purchase Programs, or participating in Drawings or claiming a Drawing prize.
In the rare event that a Member’s ship-out/marching orders are not supplied as specified above, exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis, at the Sponsor’s discretion.
“Credits” are Program points awarded for participation in various Program Activities as specified in the Program Activity’s specific terms and conditions. Credits have no monetary value, are non-transferable and may not be sold, purchased, or bartered. Credits may only be used for Program benefits by the Member who earned them. Credits are void if transferred for cash or other consideration, except for valid Program redemptions/transactions. Redemption of Credits is based on availability at the time of redemption.
Credit-earning activities and Credits that may be earned from such activities are subject to change at Sponsor’s discretion without notice. In the event of any error (including but not limited to hardware, software, and/or human caused errors) in the award of Credits, Sponsor shall have the right to correct such error and make the necessary adjustments to the number of Credits reflected in the relevant Account.
Sponsor reserves the right to establish Credit redemption rules and to set the number of Credits required to obtain benefits, including Online Store transactions, Drawing entries, etc. Such criteria are subject to change at Sponsor’s sole discretion without notice. The number of Credits required to redeem an award shall be the number set by Sponsor when Credits are redeemed for the award, not when Credits are accrued. Notifications or changes concerning the procedures for accruing Credits, redeeming Credits and Program membership rules will be published by Sponsor and will be available at the Website. It is the responsibility of each Member to review the conditions of membership prior to redeeming Credits for Rewards.

Purchase Programs and Drawings
At various times throughout the year, the Program offers Purchase Programs and Drawings to Members. Complete details for these offers can be found on their respective pages, linked from the Rewards section of the Website during the time of the promotion. This includes eligibility restrictions, start and end dates, items offered, Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) and complete conditions and restrictions.
Auction and Bid Overview
Auction items will open with a starting bid to be set by the Intel® Retail Edge Program. A member must submit a bid equal to or greater than the applicable number of Credits specified to participate. For example, if an item is eligible to open with a starting bid of 1,000 Credits, the first bid must be 1,000 Credits or higher to submit. Subsequent bids must be higher than the current active bid. Bids must be submitted in pre-set increments determined by the Program. When a member submits a bid, the applicable amount of Credits will be temporarily removed from their account, and their bid becomes the new active bid.
Each Auction will close at a randomly selected time on a day that is specified in advance by the Program. In the event a member is the high bidder at the conclusion of bidding, the applicable amount of Credits will be permanently removed from their account and he/she will be notified. In the event a member is not the highest bidder for an item, any/all Credits submitted by such member for the applicable item will be returned to their account.
Members can only have one active bid during an Auction. If a member is outbid they may continue to place a new bid on the same item or choose to bid on a new item. Members will be notified by email and site notification that they are a winner or if they have opted in to receive updates that they have been outbid on an item.
Members must be verified to bid in an Auction. If a member has the highest bid and then their verification expires, they can still win since they were verified at the time of their bid.
Auction Items General Conditions
No transfer, substitution or cash redemption of any item received is permitted, except by Intel® Retail Edge Program, which reserves the right to substitute an item with one of comparable or greater value. All item details are at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. There is a limit of one (1) Auction win per member throughout the Auction Period. Noncompliance with these Official Rules by any potential award recipient will result in disqualification and, at Intel® Retail Edge Program’s sole discretion, the item may be placed back up for bid. All winning bids are final. Cancellations will not be honored. All prizes will be delivered to the winner’s address based on the Auction profile created at the time of the first bid.
Offers, Merchandise and Premiums
Offers, merchandise, and premium items are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and only while supplies last. Merchandise in the Online Store and Auctions is subject to availability. The following guidelines apply:
- All items are shipped via ground.
- A street address is required for shipping. PO Boxes are ineligible to receive merchandise.
- Items will be shipped within 6 weeks.
