HOWIE REWARDS™ RULES
Last updated 11/11/2016
Nothing is better than getting FREE stuff, but the guy in legal is a real stickler about making sure that everybody plays by the rules. So, we are posting this to describe what Howie Rewards™ is all about and to give you the rules that govern your participation in the Howie Rewards™ program. We think it is ridiculously long and boring, but he says it is well written, detailed and informative. We’ll let you decide.
Don’t forget that all benefits that Hungry Howie’s offers through Howie Rewards™ are conditioned upon your acceptance and compliance with these rules, along with the following:
- The Honeycomb Program terms and conditions posted at http://revention.com/hungerrush/terms-of-use;
We may also have other terms and conditions for a particular incentive or promotion that will be posted as appropriate. If you don’t think you can accept or comply with these rules, then please do not join Howie Rewards™. You can still enjoy our great Flavored Crust® pizza and take advantage of our many other coupons and promotions. Either way, thanks for being a Hungry Howie’s customer.
This does not impact alter or changes the rules or terms and conditions of any other agreements you may have with us, such as our gift cards.
To simplify the language in these Rules, “Hungry Howie’s, “we”, “us”, or “our” collectively refers to Hungry Howie’s Pizza & Subs, Inc., a Michigan corporation, and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including the Sponsor.

“You” or “your” means the person registering for or participating in Howie Rewards™.
“Howie Rewards™” means the loyalty program Sponsor voluntarily provides for you and our other awesome customers, whereby customers earn points by making Qualifying Purchases; once a certain number of points have accumulated, customers earn rewards, which can be redeemed online for menu items at participating Hungry Howie’s locations, in accordance with these Rules. These menu items and rewards are designated by the Sponsor from time to time and are subject to change.
“Howie Points™” means the points you can earn by making Qualifying Purchases or which may be awarded to you from time to time in Sponsor’s sole discretion.
“Qualifying Purchases” means Completed Orders placed online (through our website or mobile app) under an Account for menu items with a pre-tax subtotal of $10.00 or more after any coupons have been applied, and excluding delivery fees, taxes, tips, donations, bottle deposits, merchandise, promotional items (like Love, Hope & Pizza bracelets), gift cards, gift certificates, Dough Raiser certificates and similar programs. Menu items are limited to food and beverages and include catering menu items.

“Account” means your registered account with us through which you create a user profile by providing us with certain information, such as your email address, home address, and full name, and which allows you to place online orders (through our website or mobile app) at participating Hungry Howie’s restaurants, store credit card information, view information pertaining to Howie Rewards™ and more.
“Rewards” means a menu item, as determined by Sponsor, you earn when you’ve accumulated a specified number of Howie Points™, as determined by Sponsor, and which may be redeemed by using a Reward Code.

So, here we go!
Tell Me About Hungry Howie’s.
As you may know, Hungry Howie’s has been around for over 40 years and has hundreds of restaurants across the United States. We franchise to great, hardworking folks (“Franchise Owners”) who want to share in the dream of selling our great food. All our restaurants are independently owned and operated by Franchise Owners.
What is Howie Rewards™?
Howie Rewards™ is a loyalty rewards program that allows us to thank our great Hungry Howie’s customers for their repeat business. It is sponsored by Hungry Howie’s National Advertising Fund, Inc., a Michigan not-for-profit corporation that is solely responsible for administering, operating, and sponsoring Howie Rewards™. When you make Qualifying Purchases using an Account, you accumulate Howie Points™ that can be redeemed for Rewards, such as menus items, at participating Hungry Howie’s locations.
Do All Hungry Howie’s Restaurants Participate in Howie Rewards™?
For a variety of reasons, some of our Franchise Owners may not always participate in every program that we set up for the Hungry Howie’s system, so you may not be able to earn or redeem Howie Points™ or Rewards at every independently owned and operated Hungry Howie’s restaurant. Hungry Howie’s restaurants in the State of Florida do not participate in Howie Rewards™. Sorry for any inconvenience.
What Do I Currently Get with Howie Rewards™?
Currently, after you accumulate 60 Howie Points™ in your Account, you will receive a Reward. Our current Reward is a FREE Medium 2-Topping Pizza. Please allow up to 24 hours for the Reward Code to activate. You will receive an email notifying you that you’ve received your Reward and your Reward Code will appear on the status page of your Account. Please add email@example.com to your Contacts or Address Book to ensure that emails we send you aren’t flagged as spam.
Use your Reward on your next order from Hungry Howie’s, or save it for later. No purchase is necessary to redeem a Reward. You may redeem multiple Rewards per order.
Please note that there are no substitutions allowed on your Reward. However, you do have the option of choosing our traditional round or thin crust. And don’t forget to add your favorite Flavored Crust®.
In the future, there may be additional or other Rewards available for a limited time and/or limited to select restaurant locations. Sponsor will provide the specific rules, terms and conditions of any other Rewards or offers at such time.
Rewards expire if you do not earn Howie Points™ or redeem Rewards for 6 consecutive calendar months.
How do I Get Howie Points™?
When you join Howie Rewards™, we will give you 10 Howie Points™ as our way of saying thank you.
You then get 10 Howie Points™ for every Qualifying Purchase.
Your Account is limited to earning 10 Howie Points™ per 24 hours, regardless of how many Qualifying Purchases you make. You can only earn Howie Points™ from and after the date that you create an Account and agree to these Rules. At this time, you cannot receive Howie Points™ on past orders.
In the future, there may be additional or other ways for you to get Howie Points™ through special promos and offers. These offers may only be available for a limited time and may be limited to select restaurant locations. Sponsor will provide the specific rules, terms and conditions of any offers at such time.
How Do I Redeem my Reward?
You’ll receive an email letting you know when you’ve earned a Reward, along with a Reward Code. Additionally, your Reward Code will appear on the status page of your Account.
Simply log in to your Account and add the designated Reward (currently a Medium 2-Topping Pizza) to your cart, no additional purchase required. Then, enter your Reward Code in the promo code text box. Your cart will reflect that the Reward Code has been properly applied. When you place an order redeeming a Reward, additional menu items, taxes, delivery fees, additional toppings and tips are extra and your responsibility. Other coupons, offers and promotions may also have restrictions.
Since Reward Codes are unique and account-specific, please refrain from sharing them, as they will only work with your Account.

- Corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and/or other entities cannot be enrolled as members in Howie Rewards™

Can Howie Rewards™ Be Changed or Altered?
Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and unfettered discretion to change, modify, alter, amend, delete or otherwise update Accounts, Howie Rewards™, these Rules, Reward Codes, Rewards, Howie Points™, or other benefits or offers of Howie Rewards™ at any time, which may be effective immediately. If a change is made, Sponsor will endeavor to provide you notice of such change through your Account by requiring you check a box to accept such change. If you do not agree with such change or check the box, you will no longer be a participant in Howie Rewards™. Unless otherwise stated, the Rules in effect at the time of your Qualifying Purchase will apply. Such changes may include: (i) the number of Howie Points™, Rewards, or other benefits earned on or after the date of change; (ii) the value of already accumulated Howie Points™, Rewards or other benefits; or (iii) the rules, terms and conditions that govern Howie Points™, Rewards or other benefits earned on or after the date of change and change the value of already accumulated Howie Points™ or Rewards.
If you decide to stay in Howie Rewards™ after a change is made, that will constitute your agreement and acceptance of any changes of these Rules.
Also, please note that “unfettered” is a word. According to Merriam-Webster, it means “not controlled or restricted”. I guess we could have said that in the first place, but it would not have sounded so cool.

All questions or disputes regarding eligibility for Howie Rewards™, accumulation of and redemption of Howie Points™ or Rewards, or your compliance with these Rules will be resolved by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
If you decide to join Howie Rewards™, then you also are agreeing that any dispute, claim, or cause of action you may have will be governed by the laws of the State of Michigan and will be under the jurisdiction of the appropriate venue in the State of Michigan, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules, terms and conditions (whether of the State of Michigan or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than State of Michigan. Except where prohibited by law, if you have a dispute, claim, or cause of action arising directly or indirectly from Howie Rewards™, then you agree that your claim cannot be part of a class action lawsuit.
If any provision of these Rules is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision will be severed from the remainder of these Rules, which will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
Sponsor’s failure to enforce any portion of these Rules does not affect or waive Sponsor’s right to enforce such Rules at any time. Additionally, Sponsor’s failure to enforce any portion of these Rules does not constitute a waiver to enforce any other portion of these Rules, at any time.
