1. Points can be used to order the awards described in the current brochure or the program website, which may be updated from time to time. Point requirements assigned to any award are subject to change from time to time without notice, and awards may be discontinued or substituted at any time. Award suppliers have agreed that, to the best of their ability, merchandise featured in this Program will be available in sufficient quantities to meet expected demand. However, there may be instances in which product demand exceeds supply, in which case the Program reserves the right to substitute a similar item of equal value or withdraw the offer for that product. If it is not replaced, points will be refunded, and the Participant will be advised to make an alternate selection.
2. Accounts must be active and in good standing (not canceled or terminated by either party; not delinquent, over limit, or otherwise not available to use for charges) at time of redemption. Awards are not available when a cardholder is in default under the Card Agreement. Carolina Trust reserves the right to suspend the cardholder’s participation in the program until the account is in good standing.
3. Awards will typically be shipped via a parcel delivery service or by the U.S. Postal Service and will generally ship within 2 to 4 weeks from time of order. On occasion, an item will be out of stock. You will be notified of this while placing your order. Once the item comes into stock, it will ship within 2 to 4 weeks from time of order. Some items may be drop shipped directly from the manufacturer/supplier and may take 4-6 weeks for delivery, but most often those items ship within 10 business days. Drop-shipped items will be noted as such under availability. There will be no charge for Standard Delivery within the 48 contiguous United States. Shipments to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico are subject to additional shipping and handling charges as well as applicable taxes. There may be items that are ineligible to ship to some locations. Shipments cannot be made to a post office box or outside the 48 contiguous United States and its territories, with the exception of APO/FPO addresses. If you enter an international non-APO/FPO address for shipments, you will be contacted for an alternative address. A valid street address and home or cell phone number are required to accept an order.
4. Award Item Return Policy: The Program extends a 100% guarantee return policy for any merchandise item received damaged or defective, provided it is returned with all original packaging. For items that are received damaged, recipient must notify Customer Service within 48-hours of delivery. For items that become defective within 30 days of receipt, customer service will provide a replacement. For items that become defective after 30 days of receipt, customer service will provide a ‘proof of purchase’ so the item can be serviced under the manufacturer warranty. Some manufacturers (e.g. Apple, Troy-Built, HP) will not allow returns but will provide exceptional warranty service. In these cases, the award recipient may receive instruction on how to obtain warranty service as opposed to a complete award replacement from the manufacturer. NOTE: Digital award items are not returnable. Because codes are “live” and e-mailed to recipients, the Program is unable to return or exchange such digital products.
In Summary: 1. Any item received damaged (reported within 48 hours of receipt) or defective (reported within 30 days of receipt) will be replaced. 2. The award program participant must call Customer Service to report the issue. 3. Customer Service will provide a Return Authorization number to the participant and return instructions. 4. The participant should repackage the item in its original packaging and write the Return Authorization number on the box. 5. Customer Service will authorize the delivery carrier to pick up the item. 6. Once received at Program Award Headquarters, the return is inspected and entered into the system. A replacement order is entered. There is no cost to the participant. 7. The replacement item will ship to the participant within 72 hours of the replacement order being processed (if in stock). An item that is not in stock will ship within 2-3 business days once it becomes available. Some items may be drop-shipped directly from the manufacturer/supplier and may take 4-6 weeks for delivery, but most often those items ship within 10 business days. NOTE: Replacement orders are manual orders and will not appear on the website. The status of the original order will remain as shipped. 8. If the original item is discontinued and there is no direct replacement, award points will be refunded to the participant.
5. Points in this Program may not be used with any other offer, promotion or discount or combined with cash to obtain merchandise awards.
6. Points will be deducted from the total points available for redemptions and for any returns or credits associated with the account. Points deducted for credits to an account will be at the same rate at which the original charges earned those points. The Participant’s credit card account may be charged for the actual cash difference between the cost of the award redeemed and the net value of the actual points available for redemption in the event the Participant redeems unearned Points.
7. Points may be forfeited due to Rules violations.

(PSCU) and any vendors associated with the Program, as well as any credit card association that their Credit Union is a member of, totally harmless if their Credit Union fails to meet its contractual and other obligations with PSCU which results in the Program being interrupted or terminated prior to giving the participant the opportunity to redeem the Points or receive the gift/travel awards. Also, the Participant agrees to hold PSCU harmless if a vendor files for bankruptcy or otherwise goes out of business, after points are redeemed for an award from the vendor but before the Participant was able to receive the award.
11. Certain restrictions may apply to travel certificates, tickets and documents. Travel certificates, tickets and documents are not exchangeable, refundable, transferable or redeemable for cash.

They are non-changeable unless permitted by the airline issuing the ticket. Fees that apply due to permitted changes by the airline are the responsibility of the traveler.
