Such Reward Offers will be communicated online through our website www.MyNR.ca. Addendums to these Terms and Conditions may be issued from time to time, specific to applicable rules for such Rewards Offers.
MyNR is being conducted at approximately forty two (42) participating Buy-Low Foods or Nesters Markets food stores (“participating locations”), and the list of participating locations is subject to change at any time. For a full list of current participating locations you can visit http://www.MyNR.ca.

Participation in MyNR constitutes the participant's ("you" or "your") full and unconditional agreement and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
TO PARTICIPATE: You must be of age of majority in the province of your residence and have registered via a downloaded and installed mobile app to participate in MyNR or any subsequent Reward Offers. Alternatively, you must have a valid My Neighbourhood Rewards Card (“MyNR Card”) issued from a Participating Store. You can obtain a free MyNR Card at any Participating Location by visiting the Customer Service Desk.
YOUR MyNR ACCOUNT: Your MyNR.ca mobile app account can only be accessed by use of your login name and password or biometric log-in as supported by your phone. You are solely responsible and liable for any use and misuse of your login name and password and for all activities that occur under your login name and password. For security reasons, you must keep your login name and password confidential and not disclose them to any person or permit any other person to use them, except an authorized MyNR representative. All login names and passwords remain the property of MyNR, and may be cancelled or suspended at any time by MyNR without any notice or liability to you or any other person. MyNR is not under any obligation to verify the actual identity or authority of the user of any login name or password. You must immediately notify MyNR of any unauthorized use of your login name or password, or if you know or suspect that your login name or password has been lost or stolen, has become known to any other person, or has been otherwise compromised. You can only have one MyNR account at a time.
Members residing in the same household may link their app based membership accounts together utilizing our smart phone app linking capabilities or card based membership accounts by visiting the customer service desk at participating locations. Any linked accounts can redeem points earned by each member linked together. Accounts can be unlinked by having all members visit the customer service desk at any participating location. Points will be divided equally or as mutually agreed upon and signed by all parties.
Members should update all personal changes immediately using the My Profile area of the mobile app, or advise MyNR immediately of any changes of personal information by mail to: "MyNR”, 19580 Telegraph Trail, Surrey, BC V4N 4H1. Inactive or extra accounts may be deleted or merged with a member’s active account, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. The MyNR card is not a credit card and has no inherent value.
EARNING MyNR POINTS: Once you have registered for MyNR (see HOW TO PARTICIPATE, above), you will receive one (1) MyNR Point for every one (1) dollar that you spend on qualifying purchases at any participating location, when present the MyNR app on your smartphone at checkout, or MyNR Membership Card, before the qualifying purchases transaction is completed. The number of Points awarded will be calculated based on the net pre-tax total (purchase price less discounts) of each qualifying purchase (excluding Lottery, Store Gift Cards, Third-Party Gift Cards, Tobacco, Alcohol, Prescriptions, Canada Post, Deposits, Ecology Fees, Transit Passes and charge account payments) rounded to the nearest dollar spent. If the Card (or smartphone with app) is not available at the time of transaction, you may present the cash register receipt at the customer service at the store of original purchase within seven (7) days of the qualifying purchase to receive the applicable Points.
You may also qualify for Shop & Earn bonus point offers where you will be awarded a set amount of points if your total qualifying purchase exceeds a base threshold amount. Each transaction can only qualify for one threshold offer, and will be applied based on the total amount of the qualifying purchase exceeding the base amount required for that level.
REDEMPTION OF MyNR POINTS: Reward Offers will be available from Sponsor (see GENERAL MyNR INFORMATION above) that will require redemption of Points for participation in such offer(s). Sponsor reserves the right to add or delete Reward Offers at any time or change the number of Points required to redeem a specific reward. A reduction in the number of Points required to redeem a specific Reward Offer does not entitle a Member who previously redeemed Points for the reward to a refund of any Points. From time to time, special promotions may be run during which one or more redemption level(s) may temporarily be altered and/or suspended, new redemption levels added or Points may be redeemed directly towards the purchase of specific Reward Offers. Sponsor may, from time to time, offer supplementary programs or promotions related to the MyNR Rewards program. Such related programs may be governed by additional or distinct terms and conditions applicable therein, such terms to be made available on the Website.
In accordance with Federal and Provincial tax legislation, GST, PST, HST and any other applicable taxes are calculated and payable by the Member on the purchase price of Rewards after any reduction for redeemed Points. Other fees, such as environmental handling fees, may be added to the purchase price where required by law.
Your MyNR Points balance will be reduced by the number of Points redeemed during a transaction. Unredeemed Points plus any Points earned in the current transaction will remain in your MyNR Points account and can be applied to a subsequent transaction. Points can only be redeemed for a Reward if the required Point redemption level is acquired prior to the Rewards transaction. Points may be redeemed in store by any person presenting the mobile phone app, or a membership Card. MyNR members are required to provide proof of identity when redeeming points for a reward with a retail value over ten dollars.
OPT-IN / OPT-OUT: When you set up your MyNR mobile app or membership card account you will be asked to opt-in to receive information and offers from MyNR. You can also opt-out of receiving such information and offers at any time by updating your settings in the Notification Settings area of the My Profile section on the mobile app. Alternatively, by contacting "MyNR”, 19580 Telegraph Trail, Surrey, BC V4N 4H1, or simply by using the unsubscribe feature in any e-mail you receive.
