  2. On becoming a member of the Program, You may be issued with a LifeClub Rewards Card. However, some Participating Pharmacies operate on a cardless account basis. The LifeClub Member is the person in whose name the account is held, irrespective of whether a card is held or who holds the card.

    2. you are not over 18 years old; or
    3. any information you have provided IPA or Your Participating Pharmacy is inaccurate, incorrect or misleading in any material way.
  4. Subject to clause 21, the benefits of the Program (including Reward Discounts, Vouchers, and other offers) may only be used at Your Participating Pharmacy (i.e. the Participating Pharmacy at which you first signed up for the Program).
  5. IPA reserves the right to withdraw the card or your membership as a LifeClub Member if

  7. Earning and Redeeming LifeClub Rewards
  8. You will earn 1 “LifeClub Rewards Point” (Point) for every $1 spent at Your Participating Pharmacy on Qualifying Purchases. Purchases will be rounded down to the nearest $1 spent, inclusive of GST.
  9. To earn LifeClub Rewards, You must present Your LifeClub Rewards Card at time of purchase (where you have one) or otherwise advise Your Participating Pharmacy you are a LifeClub Member. Points cannot be claimed retrospectively, unless authorised by Your Participating Pharmacy. Points will be recorded on Your account held by IPA, which (if applicable) is associated with your LifeClub Rewards Card. The number of LifeClub Rewards Points you have accumulated will be printed at the bottom of the receipt each time you scan your card or advise Your Participating Pharmacy that you wish the Qualifying Purchase to earn Points for the Program.
  10. Each LifeClub Rewards Point then translates to a Reward Discount at a rate determined by Your Participating Pharmacy. You should ask Your Participating Pharmacy what this is. The standard rate for many Participating Pharmacies is a Reward rate of 5% for every LifeClub Rewards Point earned.

  11. Your Participating Pharmacy may set a minimum number of LifeClub Rewards Points to be reached before allowing redemption.
  12. The rate of earning Reward Discounts for each LifeClub Rewards Point may be changed at the sole discretion of Your Participating Pharmacy by advising you by way of an e-mail and/or SMS notification and/or by Your Participating Pharmacy displaying a notice to that effect at the Point of Sale. Any change does not affect your Reward Discounts earned prior to the date of any such change and any LifeClub Rewards Points may be adjusted to ensure your Reward Discounts earned remain unaffected.
  13. A Qualifying Purchase is each purchase that is not for:
    1. a prescription item; or
    2. a health service (such as a vaccinations or opioid substitution program services); or
    3. certain low margin items nominated by Your Participating Pharmacy (which may include nappies or infant formula). For more details ask Your Participating Pharmacy.
