Points

What are Points used for?
Points are earned to unlock exclusive rewards and experiences and cannot be redeemed or used for cash or items.

How do I earn Points?
You'll earn Points by making purchases online at Roark.com and Roark Expedition Union Retail Stores or engaging with us online. The more Points you earn, the more exclusive benefits you will unlock. It's that easy.

Here’s how you’ll earn Points:
·       Make A Purchase: You'll earn 1 Point for every $1 spent.
·       Complete Your Profile: Earn 10 Points for completing your member profile.
·       Write a Review: Earn 5 Points when you write a product review on our site or 10 Points if you leave a review with an image or video.
·       Connect on Social: Earn bonus Points when you connect your social media account and participate in our contests.
·       Celebrate Giveback Days: Earn bonus Points when you participate in Giveback Days. Keep an eye out for details.

Where can I find my Points balance?
Log in to your account (through “Sign In” in upper right-hand corner of the website) and click the “Points History” button under your name. You’ll see how many Points you’ve earned within your qualifying 12-month period.

Where can I find my pending Points balance?
Log in to your account (through “Sign In” in upper right-hand corner of the website) and click the “Points History" button under your name. You’ll see how many pending Points you have. Because members enjoy a 30-day return policy, your Points will be confirmed 30 days after purchase.

What are “Pending Points”?
Points earned from purchases start as pending. Because members enjoy a 30-day return policy, your Points will be confirmed 30 days after purchase.
If the purchase is returned during the 30-day return period, the Points will be withdrawn.

How can I know how many entries I have for the Curated Monthly Contest?
Log in to your account (through “Sign In” in the upper right-hand corner of the website) and visit the “Rewards Center”. You’ll see how many entries you have collected for the Curated Monthly Contest. Contest giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Do Points expire?
Your Points balance resets every year. Your Points earned in your qualifying period qualifies you into Scout, Seeker or Guide tier status.

What can I do with my Points?
The more Points you earn qualifies you to unlock exclusive rewards and experiences. All members start as Scouts and can earn more Points to elevate to Seeker or Guide.

Members unlock Scouts automatically. Achieving Seeker or Guide tier status requires a minimum number of Points earned per qualifying period:

·       Scout: 0-499 Points
·       Seeker: 499-999 Points
·       Guide: 999+ Points

What happens to my Points if/when I make a return?
Within 30-day return period: The Points associated with the items you return will be removed from your Pending Points balance.

After 30-day return period: The accumulated points associated with the items you return will be removed from your Confirmed Points balance. Therefore, you might be adjusted to a lower tier status, if you no longer reach the minimum number of Points to maintain your tier status.

What happens to my Points if/when I cancel items?
The Points associated with the items you have canceled will be removed from your pending Points balance.

Can I earn Points at Roark Retail Stores?
Yes, you can earn Points on Roark.com and at Roark Expedition Union Retail Stores.

Can I earn Points at purchases from other retail stores/wholesale partners?
No, purchases not made online or at a Roark Retail Store will not earn Points.

Qualifying Period

What is my qualifying 12-month period?
Your qualifying 12-month period starts when you enroll in the program.

For example, if you enroll in the program on November 10, 2022, your qualifying 12-month reference period will start on November 10 of each year and end on November 9, of each year. Your tier anniversary date will be November 10 of each year. Your Points balance will also reset to 0 on this date each year.

How long do I get my Expedition Union benefits for?
During a qualifying 12-month period following enrollment in Expedition Union, you may reach a higher tier if you earn the minimum required number of points to reach that tier. On your anniversary date, i.e., when a new qualifying period begins, you will either keep your tier status or adjusted to a lower tier status, based on the number of points earned during the qualifying period.

Benefits / Tier Changes

What rewards and unique experiences do members enjoy?
As an Expedition Union member, you enjoy exclusive rewards such as:
·       Free Shipping
(priority varies by Tier)~~~~
·       Curated Monthly Contest (US residents only)
·       Member Gifts and Invitation Only Experiences (certain members only)
·       Early Access to Launches
More benefits can be unlocked the more Points you earn.

How can I know in which tier status I am?
Log in to your account (through “Sign In” in the upper right-hand corner of the website) and visit the “Rewards Center”. You’ll see if you have reached Scout, Seeker or Guide tier status.

Benefits are based on how many Points are earned during the qualifying period (See “Qualifying Period” section) and can change. Here are some cases a member should expect:
·       Tier upgrade can happen any time if you have collected the required number of Points to reach that tier (See Points section).
·        Tier downgrade can happen either at the end of the qualifying 12-month period(if you haven’t collected enough Points to keep your tier for the next period) or in the case of return (See Points section).

In case of a return happening right after a qualifying 12-month period begins:
- Your tier qualifying Points will remain at 0, if you have not started collecting any Points yet.
- You won’t lose your tier qualifying Points that you collected after a new qualifying 12-month period begins, but tier downgrade can happen if this return means that you would never have reached a higher level before the qualifying 12-month period begins.
