Membership Terms & Conditions
Members of Cost-U-Less St. Thomas +Earn More Program (the “+Earn More Program”) may earn points by purchasing qualifying products at the Cost-U-Less store in St. Thomas, participating in certain special events, purchasing specified products or making purchases during special dates and times. Under the +Earn More Program, “qualifying product purchases” means purchases of products such as groceries and household goods.
St. Thomas 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 +Earn More Program.
Points can be redeemed on the purchase of certain products or items at the St. Thomas Cost-U-Less store (some exclusions may apply). Program terms, benefits and conditions are subject to change without notice.
Terms & Conditions
All currency values listed in this Terms & Conditions are in United States (USD) dollars.
Customers may enroll by obtaining a membership card at the St. Thomas Cost-U-Less store and completing their registration on the Cost-U-Less St. Thomas website or at the in-store kiosk.
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 +Earn More Program. By enrolling, you accept and agree to these Terms and Conditions. The +Earn More 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 St. Thomas Cost-U-Less and its affiliates are eligible for membership. Membership becomes effective and these Terms and Conditions are deemed accepted when an individual completes their enrollment via the Cost-U-Less St. Thomas Rewards website or at the kiosk in store.
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. While Cost-U-Less strives towards complete security and privacy, we are 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 +Earn More Program and to Cost-U-Less St. Thomas. You may withdraw from membership at any time by providing written notice to the Cost-U-Less St. Thomas store. You may also opt-out or modify your subscription to receiving our emails by clicking the Unsubscribe button.
Enrollment in the +Earn More Program is free.
Members earn points per every $1 spent on eligible qualifying items at the St. Thomas Cost-U-Less store when the member identifies themselves as a Cost-U-Less +Earn More Program member at checkout by showing and scanning their Card. 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 at the St. Thomas location. Point calculations are based upon dollars spent at checkout on eligible product purchases and embedded taxes. 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, Tobacco 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 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 St. Thomas 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 St. Thomas 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 St. Thomas may add other items to this list without notice.
+Earn More Program members receive:
- $30 off reward (coupon) every time you reach 1500 points
- Opportunities to earn bonus points when advertised to Members
- Samples of your favorites and new product tastings
- Free member events
- Alerts on new merchandise – including exclusive and limited availability items

Points will be immediately posted to a Member’s account. If connectivity is disrupted, the points will be posted when the systems are back on line. Points are converted into Rewards based on increments of 1500 points. If a member has a points balance greater than 1500, they are awarded a $30 Reward for each 1500 point increment achieved. Any remaining balance is rolled forward. Rewards cannot be redeemed on the same transaction where they were earned.
Rewards earned are applied to the Member's account and are valid on their next eligible purchase. Multiple Rewards may be used in a single transaction. Purchases must exceed $30 on qualifying merchandise net of any discounts, promotions or rebates in order to use a Reward. Rewards may only be redeemed at the St. Thomas store. Rewards are valid for 60 days 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, Tobacco or other ineligible products and services. Lost, stolen, or expired Rewards will not be replaced. Cost-U-Less St. Thomas 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 updating their contact information in their member profile via the Cost-U-Less St. Thomas website or in-store kiosk.
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 60 days from the end of each quarter, which is included in the Rewards certificate. 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 1000 points are considered dormant after no activity for five years and will be cancelled.
Members may cancel their Cost-U-Less St. Thomas +Earn More Program membership at any time by providing written notice at the Customer Service counter. Upon account cancellation or closure, any unused points accrued in your account or Rewards earned will be forfeited and cancelled and cannot be redeemed.
Cost-U-Less St. Thomas 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.
