There is a limit of one membership per person. When possible, duplicate accounts will typically be merged. Membership is non-transferable.
Employees of CBK and its related entities and their immediate family members will not earn Friendship Rewards points for any purchase for which they used the Company employee discount, with one exception—purchases made by employees and/or their family members using the CBK PLCC are eligible to earn points.
3. Earning Points
Purchases that earn Points (also referred to herein as “Qualifying Purchases”) include apparel and accessories, and exclude sales tax, state fees, state or provincial fees, duty or value added taxes, gift cards, gift wrapping, shipping, handling, other services and, in some cases in the Company’s sole discretion, select merchandise. Points are not earned on, and the term “Qualifying Purchases” does not include: returns, refunds, credit adjustments, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, charges that violate the terms of your Credit Card Agreement, purchases made by or for a business or for a business purpose, balance transfers, interest, fees or other Account activity.
Returns of merchandise will result in a reduction in Points equal to the number of Points credited to the Member's account at the time of purchase of the item(s) that are returned. Points you earn may not be combined with Points earned on any other account. Points earned have no cash value and may not be used as payment of any outstanding obligation to the Bank or its affiliates or to Christopher & Banks.
Points for Qualifying Purchases. You will earn Points for Qualifying Purchases, stated above in Section 3, at our stores or online at www.christopherandbanks.com.
Program Members will earn 10 Points for each $1.00 of Qualifying Purchases
CBK PLCC Members will earn 15 Points for each $1.00 of Qualifying Purchases*
*CBK PLCC Members must be in Good Standing in order to earn the 15 points for each $1.00 of Qualifying Purchases. “Good Standing” means (1) your Account is open to new charges and not over your credit limit, (2) your Account is not more than 60 days past due or otherwise in default, (3) your Card is not flagged as lost, stolen, or fraudulent according to the Bank’s records, (4) your Account is not in a hardship or workout program, and (5) you are not subject to a credit counseling arrangement relating to your Account.
Program members (“Members”) will receive 250 points upon enrollment. Members may earn an additional 250 points for applying and being approved for a CBK PLCC. If a customer who is not a member of the Program applies and is approved for a CBK PLCC they will receive 500 points in total.
From time to time, Members may also earn points by engaging with the Company in a variety of ways, including by visiting stores, attending special events, and more, in accordance with promotions in effect at the time. Members may be required to take additional steps in order to be eligible for and/or receive points for such engagements or promotions. These additional points are called “Bonus Points.” The way to earn Bonus Points, and the Bonus Points that can be earned, may vary. Read each offer carefully, as there may be important conditions or limitations, such as blackout periods, Bonus Point limits, or exclusions. You may have to register to qualify for the offer. We may change or withdraw an offer at any time without notice. Any such change or withdrawal will not affect Bonus Points already earned. Your Qualifying Purchase must be completed and the transaction charged to your Account during the special offer period in order for you to earn the applicable Bonus Points. For mail order, special order, online, and other purchases, please be aware that we may not charge your Account until items purchased have shipped which may impact whether you qualify for and earn Bonus Points.
Points will generally be posted to a Member's account within 15 business days following a transaction or engagement. You can check your current Points balance at any time by logging in to your Friendship Rewards account at www.christopherandbanks.com.
Points will expire 24 months after the date that they are posted to your Points balance. Except as otherwise provided by applicable law, you will forfeit all unused Points if you file for bankruptcy, or your participation in the Program is terminated for any reason. You will not receive any compensation or new Points for your Points that expire or are forfeited.
In order to ensure that your Reward Points are issued in connection with a transaction with us, always identify yourself as a Friendship Rewards Member prior to completion of an in-store transaction or by logging in as a Friendship Rewards Member when making an online purchase at www.christopherandbanks.com. In the event you fail to identify yourself as a Member or fail to log in when making a purchase, you may contact the Company at email@example.com and provide a copy of your receipt within 60 days of your purchase to have your Points balance adjusted. Generally, points are automatically applied when the CBK PLCC is used.
Points in and of themselves have no cash value and may not be redeemed for money. The accumulation of Points is subject to the Program Rules. The number of Points required to achieve a Reward Certificate may be increased or decreased and restrictions or conditions on any Reward Certificate or other reward or their redemption may be imposed at any time.
4. Membership Tiers
Net Spend: amount spent excluding tax, state fees, state or provincial fees, duty or value added taxes, gift cards, gift wrapping, shipping, handling, other services and, in some cases in the Company’s sole discretion, select merchandise, less returns of qualifying purchases.
Points for both Program Members and CBK PLCC Members follow the point structure outlined in Section 3, regardless of Tier level.
There are four tiers of Members in the Program. The Tiers are:
- Silver Tier, available to all Members;
- Gold Tier, for Members whose Net Spend on qualifying purchases at a Christopher & Banks store and/or at christopherandbanks.com during a calendar year is $100.00 to $249.99;
- Platinum Tier, for Members whose Net Spend on qualifying purchases at a Christopher & Banks store and/or at christopherandbanks.com during a calendar year is $250.00 to $599.99; and
- Diamond Tier, for Members whose Net Spend on qualifying purchases at a Christopher & Banks store and/or at christopherandbanks.com during a calendar year is $600.00 or greater.
Qualifying purchases for purposes of Tier assignment shall have the definition provided in Section 3 of these Terms & Conditions.
Returns of merchandise will result in a reduction in net spend equal to the value of the merchandise returned, based upon the original purchase price.
Tier upgrades will generally be processed once per month. You can check your current Tier status at any time at www.christopherandbanks.com.
Once you reach a specific Tier, you will remain in that Tier for the remainder of the current calendar year unless your Net Spend qualifies you for the next highest tier. With each new calendar year, we will determine your Tier based on your total Net Spend in the prior calendar year. If your Net Spend in the prior calendar year were not enough to maintain your current Tier, your Tier will be adjusted accordingly.
Gold, Platinum and Diamond Tier Members may each receive benefits not offered to Members in the other Tiers.
CBK may add, remove, or otherwise alter the Membership Tiers and the benefits associated with each Tier at any time on a prospective basis.
5. Rewards and Benefits
Members are issued a $10 Reward Certificate after their point balance reaches 2,500 Reward Points. Reward Certificates will be automatically sent to your email address or, if none is provided, the mailing address we have on file. Upon issuance of the Reward Certificate, a Member's account will be debited in increments of 2,500 Points for each $10 Reward Certificate issued. There is no limit on the amount of Reward Points you can earn in a calendar year; however, no more than $50.00 in Reward Certificates will be issued in any one processing period. Reward Certificates will be processed one time per month, prior to the 15th of the month, and will expire on the last day of next calendar month following issuance. A Reward Certificate may only be used once and will expire if not used by its expiration date, which appears on the Certificate. If there is no valid email or mailing address on file for a Member, Reward Certificates that would otherwise be issued may be forfeited by that Member. To change or add an email address or mailing address, please contact us 763-551-5000 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members are entitled to free standard shipping on all online orders placed through www.christopherandbanks.com within the 48 contiguous United States with no minimum purchase required, so long as you are a Member and log in with your name and password prior to placing your order. Members will be charged applicable rates for expedited shipping and for shipping to any authorized locations outside the 48 contiguous United States.
Members will receive during their birthday month a gift, discount or other benefit as long as their account reflects at least one purchase during the prior 12 months. Must be a member one month prior to birthday month in order to receive the birthday gift. The gift, discount or other benefit provided may vary based upon the Membership Tier achieved.
Members should receive during the anniversary month of their enrollment in the Program a gift, discount or other benefit, as long as their account reflects at least one purchase during the prior 12 months. The gift, discount or other benefit provided may vary based upon the Membership Tier achieved.
Other benefits periodically provided to Members may include special discount days and invitations to special in-store events.
In addition to Reward Points, some or all Members may be eligible for other benefits or promotions that may be offered or made available by CBK from time-to-time at CBK's sole discretion. Such benefits or promotions shall be subject to whatever conditions or restrictions as are determined by CBK in its sole discretion and may be revoked at any time.
6. Using Reward Certificates
Reward Certificates cannot be redeemed for cash; they are not "gift cards" and have no cash value. No Reward Points are awarded for the portion of the purchase covered by a Reward Certificate.
Where several items are purchased in the same transaction and a Reward Certificate is used, the value of any Reward Certificate or Certificates used will be applied among the items purchased based upon the relative prices of the items. Refunds for purchases made using Reward Certificates will be made for the net price paid after the value of the Reward Certificate or Certificates is applied to that item. Once a Reward Certificate is used, it is forfeited even if an item purchased using the Reward Certificate is returned.
Reward Certificates may only be redeemed toward purchases of eligible CBK merchandise that equals or exceeds the total amount of the Reward Certificates being applied to the purchase of merchandise, exclusive of taxes, state fees, and shipping and handling. Reward Certificates are not valid on prior purchases, credit card payments, the purchase of gift cards and certain products or services including gift wrapping, taxes, state fees, and shipping and handling fees. Reward Certificates are not redeemable for cash or credit and will be surrendered or voided upon redemption. Reward Certificates may, in some cases, combined with other coupons, discounts and promotions. Unless expressly prohibited by the terms of the coupon, discount or promotion. Any unused Reward Certificate value will be forfeited.
Reward Certificates may be gifted to or redeemed by non-members but may only be used once.
7. Additional Terms
These Terms supersede all previously published Program terms (whether in hard copy or electronic) in their entirety.
CBK reserves the right to terminate an individual’s Membership, forfeit all Reward Points and take other appropriate administrative and/or legal action if it suspects fraud, violation of law, misrepresentation, abuse and/or violation of the Program Rules.

Reward Points accrued by a Member are for the Member's benefit only and may not be transferred to anyone, except as may be permitted from time to time by the Company in connection with special promotions or charitable campaigns and subject to conditions set by the Company.

Points Disputes. If Points you believe were earned have not timely posted to your Points balance, you may dispute your Points balance (“Points Dispute”) by calling 763-551-5000 or writing to Christopher & Banks, Inc. 2400 Xenium Lane North, Plymouth, MN 55441. We will use reasonable efforts to investigate your Points Dispute if you notify us within 15 days of the posting date. If you do not notify us within that period, you waive your right to make a Points Dispute with respect to that purchase. We may require you to provide written confirmation of the dispute and the applicable purchase receipt and may decline to investigate further if you do not provide the requested confirmation or a valid receipt. Upon completion of the investigation, we will have no further responsibilities if you later reassert the same Points Dispute. Please note that the dispute rights with respect to your Account under the Account Agreement do not apply to these Terms or to your rights and remedies under these Terms, which are solely as set forth in these Terms. Your sole and exclusive remedy, and our maximum liability to you, in the event you prevail in a Points Dispute, is for us to credit the disputed Points to your Points balance.
