Cost-U-Less Rewards ("Program"): Points are earned on the price paid for an item before tax and after deducting all discounts, rebates, gift certificate purchases, delivery fees and the value of any rewards applied to the purchase. Program rewards are paid out on the receipt when a minimum of 500 points across one or more transactions are earned. Program rewards expire within 30 days. Rewards are redeemable for future purchases.
Frequently Asked Questions

Membership Terms & Conditions
Members of Cost-U-Less Barbados Member Rewards Program (the “Member Rewards Program”) may earn points by purchasing qualifying products at the Cost-U-Less store in Barbados, participating in certain special events, purchasing specified products or making purchases during special dates and times. Under the Member Rewards Program, “qualifying product purchases” means purchases of products such as groceries and household goods.
Barbados Cost-U-Less has the right to make the final decision on whether a purchase qualifies for points (or an action qualifies for bonus points) under the Member Rewards Program.
Points can be redeemed on the purchase of certain products or items at the Barbados Cost-U-Less store (some exclusions may apply). Program terms, benefits and conditions are subject to change without notice.
Terms & Conditions
Customers may enroll by completing an enrollment form at the Barbados Cost-U-Less store.
Membership is open to any customer who is at least 16 years of age. No purchase is necessary to enroll in the Cost-U-Less Member Rewards Program. By enrolling, you accept and agree to these Terms and Conditions. The Member Rewards Program is not available in all areas and is void where prohibited by law. Membership is nontransferable and subject to present and future program rules. Employees of Barbados Cost-U-Less and its affiliates are eligible for membership, but may not participate in all benefits (see sweepstakes below). Membership becomes effective and these Terms and Conditions are deemed accepted when an individual enrols in the Cost-U-Less Barbados Member Rewards Program and your enrollment application has been accepted and your Member Rewards Program number has been issued.
At the time of enrollment, each Cost-U-Less Rewards member needs to provide at a minimum: Email Address, First Name, Last Name, Address, Phone Number and Birth Date. Cost-U-Less is not responsible for unauthorized use of a member’s identifier or redemption of a member’s reward/points in the event the member’s account has been compromised. By enrolling and providing your email address, you agree to our contacting you for the purposes of providing you with information and updates related to the Member Rewards Program and to Cost-U-Less Barbados. You may withdraw from membership at any time by providing written notice to the Cost-U-Less Barbados store.
Enrollment in the Member Rewards Program is free.
Members earn 1 point per every $1 spent on eligible qualifying items at the Barbados Cost-U-Less store when the member identifies themselves as a Cost-U-Less Member Rewards Program member at checkout by showing and scanning their Card or by providing their phone number to the cashier. Points are not earned on any portion less than $1, such as 0.50. Purchases made at other Cost-U-Less locations are not eligible to earn points. Point calculations are based upon dollars spent at checkout on eligible product purchases and embedded taxes (such as VAT). Points are not earned on any dollars spent on additional sales tax, delivery charges, bottle deposits, rebates applied at the time of purchase, coupons, the dollar amount of available mail-in rebates at the time of purchase of any product or service, the dollar amount of a purchase of gift cards/certificates, the dollar amount of any gift card/certificate offer with purchase, or other excluded charges. Members do not earn points for the amount of any Reward redeemed or discounts applied to an eligible or qualifying product purchase.
Purchases made without a member providing a Membership Number or phone number associated with their Membership account will not be eligible to earn points. The number of points earned is based on the final purchase amount of all eligible items and any embedded taxes included in price of those items in a single transaction, and not on individual items. If a member redeems a Cost-U-Less Reward coupon toward a purchase, and pays a portion of the retail price after the Reward redemption, the member will receive points on the remaining retail amount paid by the member, but not on the amount of the Reward redemption. Purchases made prior to enrollment in the program are not eligible to earn points.
At certain times, Cost-U-Less Barbados may offer promotions in which members may earn additional or “bonus points” in connection with the purchase of certain products, reaching certain spending amounts in one purchase, participating in specified events or taking other certain actions. During these promotions, a member will earn the bonus points as specified in the specific offer. Bonus point promotions are subject to the terms and conditions of the offer and may be offered at any time at the Cost-U-Less Barbados store at the company’s sole discretion. Bonus point promotions are valid for a limited time only and may be ended without notice.
No points are earned on taxes that are not embedded in the price of an item, Reward redemptions, or coupons or discounts taken at check out. Cost-U-Less Barbados may add other items to this list without notice.
Member Rewards Program members receive:
- $5 off reward (coupon) every time you reach 500 points
- Double rewards ($10 off) for every 500 points after you spend $3,500 each calendar year on your Rewards card
- Opportunities to earn bonus points when advertised to Members
- Automatically entered into a weekly drawing with every purchase for a $25 gift certificate

*Email address is required to receive a $25 gift certificate.
Points will be immediately posted to a Member’s account. If connectivity is disrupted, the points will be posted when the systems are back online. Points are automatically converted to a $5 Reward when the minimum threshold for the reward (500 points) is reached (see redeeming points below for details). Rewards cannot be redeemed on the same transaction where they were earned.
When members accumulate 500 points across one or more transactions, they will receive a $5 reward delivered on the receipt (“Reward”). Once a member totals $3,500 or more in purchases on their Member Rewards Program account, the next Reward is doubled to $10 for every 500 points accumulated until the end of that calendar year (December 31st). To redeem a Reward, a member must present the Reward Coupon with the accompanying barcode that is printed on the member’s Receipt during the transaction that triggered the Reward(s). Multiple Rewards may be used in a single transaction. There is no minimum purchase required to redeem the Reward, but no “change back” or credit is given for a partially used Reward (i.e., if the purchase total is less than the Reward value). Rewards are valid for 30 days after the time they are issued unless noted otherwise on the Reward. There is no limit to how many Rewards a member can earn in one year.
Rewards may not be used to purchase gift certificates or other ineligible products and services. Lost, stolen, or expired Rewards will not be replaced. Cost-U-Less Barbados is not responsible for program communications, including Rewards, which are lost, delayed or misdirected during transit, and assumes no responsibility for errors caused by incorrect member name or contact information. Members are responsible for notifying Cost-U-Less Barbados of any changes in member name or contact information.
Value & Transferability
Points and Rewards have no cash value, are issued for promotional purposes only, are non-transferable, cannot be bartered, exchanged or redeemed for cash, do not constitute property of the member, may not be combined among members and may not be transferred or assigned to any other person, entity, trust or estate.
Rewards expire 30 days from the issue date, which is included in the Rewards message. Unused points do not expire, but once they are converted to a Reward they are removed from a member’s point balance and do not count toward future Rewards. Member accounts with balances below 500 points are considered dormant after no activity for five years and will be cancelled.
Cost-U-Less Barbados reserves the right to deduct points from a member’s account if a member earned points from a purchase and that purchase is subject to a returned check fee for non-sufficient funds or the merchandise is later subject to a return, refund, or other credit. If a member uses a Reward to purchase an item and then returns the item or the member’s check is returned NSF, the Reward shall not be reissued for use again.
