Membership in the Program (“Membership”) is limited to individuals only and limited to one account per individual. No purchase is necessary to become a member of MINISO Rewards. The membership program is intended for personal, non-commercial use only. You must be age 15 years or older to be eligible for membership.

Corporations, groups, and other business entities are not eligible to participate nor are technological beings or entities, regardless of their definition under common law.
You may not use the Program for any purpose that intentionally or unintentionally violates these Terms and Conditions, be it in letter or spirit.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold MINISO, its vendors and service providers, and each of their respective affiliates and employees harmless from and against any actual or threatened demands of any kind or nature arising out of or in connection with your violation of these Terms and Conditions.
Joining the Program
You may join the Program by creating an account with MINISO retail store staff and online through our website here. Personal information such as your name, phone number, E-mail address and birthday are required upon registration. Your member account pertains uniquely to you; it may not be sold, transferred, shared with or assigned to any other party, nor can it be used by you for commercial purposes of any nature. You may not maintain more than one member account; in other words, every person is limited to one member account.
The benefits offered through the Program are based on “MiniPoints” you earn and a number of special promotions (which can come with their own separate and/or additional terms and conditions). All stores will be able to collect and redeem points except for our locations in Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Yellowknife.
We may offer bonus points events from time to time, and in such circumstances, the bonus points offer would apply. Separate terms and conditions may apply to each bonus point offered.
At the time of checkout, you must provide our staff with your MiniFriend registered phone number, email address, or digital MiniFriend membership number to have any MiniPoints credited to your account.
You will earn MiniPoints based on the value of your purchase at the rate of 1 MiniPoint for each whole dollar ($1.00) of your transaction before tax at participating MINISO locations. For example, a purchase of $5.50 before tax will earn you 5 points. Fractional amounts are not stored in the system nor are they added to subsequent purchase. A qualifying transaction will only earn points for the member account associated with the registered phone number or email address presented at the time of purchase. Points cannot be combined or shared among other member accounts.
When a transaction that accumulated points to your account is returned or voided, MINISO will deduct the applicable MiniPoints from your account balance. Purchases that received discounts from MiniPoints redemption must be returned in full, partial returns will not be accepted. In the event that the number of MiniPoints deducted is equal to or greater than the number of points in your account, the point balance will return to zero.
MiniPoints themselves have no cash value and can only be redeemed for Rewards, as defined below. MINISO may, in its sole discretion, allow members to be redeemed for benefits or items of merchandise from time to time. However, unless expressly permitted by MINISO, MiniPoints are never redeemed for cash, for another product, or vouchers.
From time to time, MINISO or others acting with our permission may offer special promotions that allow Program members to earn points faster. Examples of such special promotions may include, but are not limited to, “Double-Points Days”, “Double Point Items”, and “Triple - Point Items.” MINISO, in its sole and absolute discretion, may also offer opportunities to earn points without first requiring purchase of MINISO items. Examples of such opportunities include, but are not limited to, points earned from the sign-up bonus, MiniPoint giveaways. MiniPoints will be awarded according to the description and/or terms and conditions set forth in the respective promotional offer.
As part of the benefits of being a member, your MiniPoints may be redeemed for rewards (“Rewards”). Reward availability is determined by MINISO at its sole and absolute discretion. Every 100 points equals to $1 in discount, applicable towards your purchase total after tax. You are eligible to redeem MiniPoints for a Reward only if you have 100 or more MiniPoints in your account. When redeeming MiniPoints for discounts (in terms of dollars off) on purchases, the redeemed amount is applied after tax. For example, on a purchase total of $5.95, 200 MiniPoints (valued at $2) may be redeemed towards the purchase. Rewards can only be redeemed in store at participating MINISO locations. Reward redemption is also subject to availability of supplies. Substitutions may be made by MINISO in its sole and absolute discretion. The value of points is also subject to change, at Miniso’s sole and absolute discretion. MiniPoints can be redeemed starting from the next day such points were earned, which means that you cannot redeem the points on the day that you earned them.
To redeem a Reward, members must provide in-store staff with the necessary account information (phone number) and inform them of the desired Reward. You cannot redeem more than $50 within one transaction. Each time you redeem a Reward, MINISO will remove the corresponding amount of MiniPoints from your account.
Points have no actual cash value and cannot be transferred or sold, and can only be exchanged for rewards. If a particular Reward is not fully used when redeemed, the remaining balance of the Reward will not be refunded, nor will any remaining balance be applied toward future purchases. MiniPoints are deducted at time of reward exchange and will not be refunded once the exchange has occurred. Purchases made with MiniPoints discounts will adhere to the no return policy in store. No returns will be accepted on all purchases.
These Terms and Conditions apply to any and all Rewards given through MINISO Rewards. Each Reward may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the particular promotion.
Every MiniPoint will be expired in 12 months from the date you earn it. To clarify, if you earn 10 points on January 1, 2022, and you don’t redeem them before January 1, 2023, they will be expired and cannot be redeemed with other points later. The oldest accrued MiniPoints will be used first for redemptions. If you feel your MiniPoints have expired in error, please email us at email@example.com for assistance.
MINISO may, at its own discretion, launch special promotional offers and activities via MINISO Rewards. Such special promotions will be subjected to these Terms and Conditions as well as additional terms and conditions. Special promotions may or may not be distributed to the entire membership program base. MINISO reserves the right to target specific members for eligibility to receive any special promotional offers.

The available MiniPoints balance and outstanding Rewards in the member account will expire immediately, not to be reinstituted should the account be reopened.
