Just received this message:
In the coming months, we'll be introducing a new Bonus Points program. Here's what you need to know:
When the new program launches, your current balance will carry over.
You'll continue to earn Bonus Points on all eligible Club purchases, but you'll temporarily be unable to redeem your points after 7/1/2013.
This hiatus will only last for a short period of time until the new program is up and running.
Thanks for your patience and keep an eye out for updates about the new program. It will definitely be worth the wait! But in the meantime, redeem those Bonus Points you have already racked up!
Anyone else concerned on how it will be changed? I hope it doesn't revert back to the not allowing partial-payment. The two main things they need to fix are: Don't expire at end of calendar year--makes no sense for orders placed late in the year. If anything should be expire a year after you earn (but I'd rather have no expiration). Also, I hope they change it to apply to discounted prices and not retail.
