    Brew Bucks Program Terms and Conditions


    The ECS Coffee Brew Bucks Rewards program is our way of saying thanks to our loyal customer base. This rewards program is operated by ECS Coffee Inc. as well as Smile.io and is available only to legal residents of Canada. 

    By creating an account or accessing, participating in or using the Program, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and by all terms incorporated by reference. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions or other terms incorporated by reference, do not participate in this program.

    1. Membership Eligibility

    Membership in the program is free. No purchase necessary. To participate, you must be a legal Canadian resident, 18 years of age or older. There is a limit of one membership per individual. 

    There are two (2) ways to enroll in the program:

    a. In-store: Create your account in store. A store associate will enter your information into our system. Provide your email address, full name and phone number. Once an account has been created for you in our store, you will begin collecting points on all purchases. If you created an account in store but would also like to use and monitor your points on our website, you will have to create an online account at

    ecscoffee.com/account/register. Use the same email you provided in store to create your online account. They will link up and your points will be visible online.

    b. Online: Create your ECS Coffee account online at ecscoffee.com/account/register . You will need to provide an email address. Then opt in to the program via the "Rewards" popup on the bottom left hand corner of your browser. No cards are required for this program.

    Other technology for enrolling and participating in the program may be approved by ECS Coffee from time to time.

    The membership does not require a card, points earned under the program are stored on your account via your email. Provide your email, phone number or name to our store staff when shopping to access your points in store. 

    After enrolling, if you need to change the email address associated with your account you will have to contact ECS Coffee. Contact us with your old email associated with your points, and the new email you wish to use. We will change it and you will now be able to log in via the new email. You may contact us via our website chat, email (webdesk@ecscoffee.com) or phone.

    2. Earning Brew Bucks

    Under the program, you will receive points for every dollar spent online and in store. Online orders receive 1 brew buck for every $1 spent, in store purchases receive 2 brew bucks for every $1 spent. This is to balance out the program, as many extra ways to earn points are only eligible to online customers (such as bonus points for reviews, following us on social media, etc). To receive your points, you must checkout using the email address provided online or in store that is associated with your account. The number of points awarded will be calculated based on the rounded-up amount closest to the net amount paid for products, before tax and shipping. 

    With points earned through Product Reviews, the product review must follow proper review guidelines and must be a valid review. You can earn 30 points per review left on an item you have purchased, on a maximum of 3 reviews per month. Reviews that do not relate to the product, are spam or inappropriate, or incoherent will not be approved as real reviews, and will not award points. Our review system is in place to give customers real customer feedback on our products, and real, honest reviews help with this. You must be logged in to your points account to earn points on reviews you write.

    We may also offer bonus points for promotions or events from time to time. In such circumstance, the bonus points offer would apply instead of the above point formula. For example, if we have a 3x the points day, you would receive 3 points for every dollar spent instead of 1 or 2 points for 1 dollar. 

    Points have no cash value and can only be redeemed for Rewards. Points cannot be redeemed on shipping fees or on tax. Points are never redeemable for cash or for another product (unless set by ECS Coffee).

    3. Earn rewards with Brew Bucks

    You will be able to exchange your Brew Bucks for rewards. We do not automatically assign the rewards, you will need to select the reward that you want to redeem to convert your points into rewards. We will notify you when you have earned enough points for a reward, so you can choose to redeem them. Your earned reward will also appear in your program account, where you will be able to select and apply it to your shopping cart upon checkout. The converted points will at the same time be automatically deducted from your account and they will no longer be visible in your current points balance. Only 1 reward can be applied to an order at a time, rewards do not stack. 

    For example, if you have 1000 points in your account and you decide to redeem it for a $10 off reward, the 1000 points balance will be converted to the reward. If you have 1000 points and you do not want your $10 reward and wish to save your points, you can do so. Your points only get converted to rewards when you choose.

    4. Redeeming your rewards

    You can redeem your rewards in store and online. The rewards are provided to you in the form of a code which can be entered into the "Gift Card and Coupon Code" section of our checkout page to receive a discount to your order online. To redeem your points in store, let the store staff know that you would like one of your rewards upon checkout. They will apply the reward to your in store purchase.

    Rewards are redeemable at www.ecscoffee.com and at any ECS Coffee store location.

    You are unable to use your rewards on recurring subscription orders. If you have a subscription item in your shopping cart, the reward discount code will not work. Reward redemptions are valid on non-subscription orders in stores and online. You will however still earn Brew Bucks on your recurring subscription order.

    5. Your program account

    You may only have one program account. You can view online your current points balance, your earned rewards, as well as any point activity in your account. You may also obtain this information by asking one of our employees in store. To view your balance online, simply log in to your online account. Your Brew Bucks Rewards section on your browser is your destination for everything related to the program and your membership, including viewing your current points balance and available rewards earned, redeeming rewards and gifts, and learning about your program benefits. 

    If ECS Coffee accepts a product return and refunds you for any item you purchased for which you received Brew Bucks, then the corresponding points will be deducted accordingly in your program account.

    6. Point Expiration

    It is our goal through this program to reward active ECS Coffee members through their regular purchases. To maintain your points balance, we require you to engage in any point activity within 2 years to keep your points and membership account. If an account has remained dormant for more than 2 years with no point activity (no redemptions or earned points during this time), the account will be considered inactive and all points associated with the account removed. 

    Before you reach 2 years of inactivity (meaning that no points have been awarded or spent during that period), we will send an email to the address associated with your account advising you that if no points transaction is made before the date of expiration provided (Expiration Date), the points in your account will expire and will be cancelled at such time. This inactivity email notice will be sent to the email address associated with your account between thirty (30) and sixty (60) days before your points are cancelled at the expiration date.

    Even if your points expire, your account will remain open. You will be able to reactivate your program account and thereby recommence earning new points under the Program. Reactivating an account will not restore points cancelled due to inactivity.

    7. Communications from ECS Coffee

    By submitting an application for membership in the program, you agree to receive notifications about the rewards program pertaining to your rewards and points. You can choose to opt out of these emails by clicking the "unsubscribe" option on the bottom of these emails. 

    8. Changes to the program

    ECS Coffee reserves the right to unilaterally modify, limit, suspend and interrupt program terms and conditions without prior notice. The following terms and conditions can be modified: program eligibility terms, number of points awarded per dollar spent, necessary amount of points for rewards, reward offers, eligible purchases to earn points, the period of time for inactivity for point expiration, etc.

    In the event these Terms and conditions or any aspect of the program are restricted, suspended or changed, we will provide you advance notice by posting the amended Terms and Conditions online at www.ecscoffee.com and by sending a notice to the email address associated with your account. The notice will contain a comparison illustrating the changes. Your continued participation in the program following such a notice will constitute your consent to any amendments to these terms and conditions, or any other aspect of the program.

    In the event that the amendment entails an increase in your obligations or a reduction in our obligations and you do not agree to such amendment, you may close your account and cancel your participation in the program without cost or penalty. 

    The version of the program terms and conditions on the ECS Coffee website shall prevail over any other previous versions.

    9. Account Termination

    Members may leave the program at any time, at their sole discretion, by sending an email to this effect to customer service. The members information will be deleted upon their specific demand and the points accumulated and rewards earned made available in the account will be revoked and cancelled.

    We also reserve the right to terminate your participation in the program immediately on grounds of any abuse, manipulation, fraud, tampering with the program, failure to repeatedly follow any terms and conditions of the program, any conduct detrimental to the interests of ECS Coffee. In the event of such termination, we will send an email notice to the email address associated with your account. Upon such termination, any rewards that have not been redeemed and all points will be forfeited and your membership will end.
