What are rebate points?

You can exchange for a $10 gift certificate for every 10 active rebate points collected.

To use gift certificates, simply enter them during checkout, under payment options. Gift certificates are non-refundable but are otherwise good as cash.

Collecting Points

Rebate points representing 1% of your PayPal/Credit Card payments or 3% of Bitcoin payments, are automatically added to your account after orders are placed on FastTech.com. Extra points can be gained by participating in promotional events and FastTech forum discussions.

Note: wholesale or customized orders created through customer advocates (i.e. orders not placed directly via FastTech.com) are not eligible for points.

Refunds

When refunds are made to PayPal or credit card accounts, rebate points are cancelled accordingly. Note that refunding to store credits or gift certificates does not cause points to be cancelled.

Validity

As payments can be refunded within 60 days, your rebate points remains "pending" for the first 60 days they are issued. Pending points cannot be transferred or redeemed for gift certificates. 

All rebate points expire 1-year after their date of collection.

Note: FastTech implemented a new rolling expiry points system in late 2014 and got rid of an old static expiry date for all points. During the transition, as a special one-time offer for the year of 2014, all expired active points were converted into a gift card on 11/10/2014.

Rounding

The minimum value for rebate points issued is 0.01. If your purchase is less than $0.50, rebate point rewarded becomes 0 after rounding.

Disclaimers

Rebate points is simply a points system. These points do not carry any monetary value themselves.
