Any M&S points that are not converted to M&S discount coupons will be converted to these coupons on the next M&S discount voucher date and will be included in your statement of points in the reward statement sent by post and in the mobile app if the customer earns enough points to receive the reward. For every 3,000 points you earn, you will receive a cash coupon worth CZK 30 for your next purchase in the reward statement for the new season.

15. In the event that the number of points does not change from the previous statement, or if sufficient points are not earned for the allocation of M&S discount coupons, we reserve the right not to send cardholders notice of the allocation of M&S discount or bonus coupons. The minimum amount of the customer account to receive the reward is CZK 3000, or 3,000 points, and the minimum reward value sent for each point collection period will be determined at our discretion.

If you change your mind about the items you purchased and if you used your M&S card to make a purchase, you should present your M&S card with the returned goods so that any M&S points earned on the original purchase can be deducted from your account. Any return of goods will be reflected in your M&S point account. The current number of points is displayed on each M&S receipt and in the mobile app. If the purchase entitles you to earn bonus points and the return of the goods will violate the original promotion criteria, then the bonus points earned during the original purchase will be deducted from your customer account. If you are refunded money for a purchase after the issue of M&S discount vouchers, the points earned as part of the original transaction will be deducted and your account balance in the mobile app may be negative.

23. When a product purchased using an M&S card is returned, the points earned on its account will be deducted. In the event that discount vouchers that the customer receives in the rewards statement for the new season were used during a purchase, the points will be converted and returned to the M & S card. In the following statement the customer will receive the returned discount vouchers according to the total balance of their point account.

24. For each M&S cardholder, an online account is automatically created in the mobile app, where they can update their contact information, review all purchases (for which they have presented an M&S card), the status of points and unused discount and cash coupons.
