Terms and Conditions
CARRS/SAFEWAY & ALASKA AIRLINES MILEAGE PLAN™ PROGRAM
The Carrs/Safeway & Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ Program (the "Program") is offered to CarrsPlus/Safeway Club Card members ("Members"). Generally, the Program runs annually (typically from February 1st through January 31st of the applicable year) (each year, a "Program Year") and must be renewed annually by all participating Members during a renewal period in the applicable Program Year, as announced by Safeway. The dates of the Program Year and the renewal period each Program Year may vary and are determined by Safeway in its sole discretion.
The Program Terms.
The terms and conditions below reflect the current Program terms, which may be modified from time to time with or without notification (the "Program Terms"). Therefore, you are advised to periodically review the Program Terms to keep current with the Program. The date of the last change to the Program Terms is listed below. Your participation in the Program indicates that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by the Program Terms and any modifications made to them. If you do not agree to any or all of the Program Terms, do not enroll in the Program. If you disagree with any changes to the Program Terms, please cancel your Program membership. The Program cannot be used or exchanged for and cannot be combined with any other program, promotion or offer.
You must be 18 years old or older to enroll in the Program. You must be enrolled in the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ program and be a Member to be eligible to participate in the Program. While the Program is open to legal residents of the United States you can only earn Alaska Airlines miles by shopping at participating Carrs/Safeway stores located in Alaska. By enrolling and participating in the Program, you represent that you meet these eligibility requirements.
Enrolling in the Program and Changing Account Information.
To register for the Program, visit www.carrsqc.com/alaskaair and enter all required information, including your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ number, your CarrsPlus/Safeway Club Card information and your email address. You must enter all required information in order to register and to be able to earn miles. To make changes to your Program account, visit www.carrsqc.com/alaskaair. If you have difficulty enrolling or want to cancel your enrollment, call 1-877-723-3929.
Earn 100 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ Miles at Carrs/Safeway for every $300 you spend on qualified purchases with your CarrsPlus/Safeway Club Card (calculated after deduction of club card savings, all other discounts and savings and excluded items) to the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account designated at Program registration (the "Account"). Your CarrsPlus/Safeway Club Card or account information must be provided at the time of purchase for the purchase to qualify. For each Household (defined below), dollars from qualified purchases will be accrued from the date of registration in the Program. Every time your CarrsPlus/Safeway Club Card is used on qualified purchases at a participating Carrs/Safeway stores during the applicable Program Year, the Account will accumulate dollars toward earning Mileage Plan™ miles. All dollar amounts are rounded down.
Accumulated dollar amounts for qualified purchases will print on Member's receipt tape. When the accumulated total amount reaches $300, the award message will indicate that 100 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ miles are eligible to be posted on the Account. Store register receipt tapes may not fully reflect a Member’s accumulated eligible miles if a member of the Household shops in multiple participating Carrs/Safeway stores. Any amounts shown on store register tapes are subject to change.
In no event will qualified purchases made before Program registration be counted toward earning Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ miles. All earned Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ miles will be transferred to Alaska Airlines by Safeway on a regular basis. All miles awarded will be reported to Members by Alaska Airlines. Please allow up to ninety (90) days for miles to be posted to the Account by Alaska Airlines. If a Member’s eligible purchases do not reach $300, no miles will be earned, awarded or posted.
The following items are not included in qualified purchases for the calculation of miles earned: Beer, Wine, Spirits, Tobacco Products, Fuel, All Fluid Dairy items in the Refrigerated Dairy Section (Including Fluid Dairy and Dairy Substitutes), Prescription Items and Co-Payments, Bus/Commuter Passes, Fishing/Hunting Licenses and Tags, Postage Stamps, Money Orders, Money Transfers, Ski Tickets, Amusement Park Tickets, Event Tickets, Lottery Tickets, Phone Cards, Gift Cards, Gift Certificates, Bottle Deposits and Sales Tax.
Miles can only be earned for qualified purchases made at participating Carrs/Safeway stores in the state of Alaska. Void where prohibited by law. Only one (1) Account can be registered to any CarrsPlus/Safeway Club Card. A set of one or more club cards with the same address and either (i) the same telephone number or (ii) the same last name will constitute one "Household". Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ miles are accumulated on a per Household basis (maximum of 12 people to a household). Limit one (1) program enrollment per Household. As a result, all Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ miles earned through the Program will be credited to a single Account number designated by the Member who originally signed up for the Program or renewed thereafter, even if the members of the household maintain different Account numbers. Miles and any other benefits have no cash value. Any unspecified expenses and taxes related to acceptance/use of Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ miles under the Program are solely the Member's responsibility.

Venue and Choice of Law.
ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THE PROGRAM TERMS OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF YOU OR SAFEWAY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAM SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OR CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS. FOR THE PURPOSES OF ANY DISPUTES HEREUNDER, BY ENROLLING OR PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM, YOU AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THE PROGRAM SHALL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION AND CONSENT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE APPROPRIATE STATE OR FEDERAL COURT SITUATED IN SAN FRANCISCO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA.
By enrolling and participating in the Program, you agree: (i) that any and all disputes you may have with, or claims you may have against, Safeway relating to, arising out of or connected in any way with (a) the Program and/or (b) the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (ii) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (iii) the arbitration shall be held in San Francisco County, California; (iv) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the Program Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that you may have entered into in connection with the Program; (v) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (vi) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only your and/or Safeway individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (vii) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or Safeway; (viii) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against Safeway exceed $125 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Safeway agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator; (ix) if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Safeway will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (x) with the exception of subpart (vi) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (vi) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Safeway shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at www.jamsadr.com.
In all matters relating to the administration of the Program, the decisions of Safeway shall be final. Safeway is not responsible for communication problems of any kind relating to the Program. Under no circumstances will Safeway be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond its reasonable control. If any provision of the Program Terms is found to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from the Program Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions. The failure of Safeway to enforce any right or provision of the Program Terms will not prevent Safeway from enforcing such right or provision in the future. The Program Terms cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of Safeway. Safeway may assign its rights and obligations under the Program Terms, including in connection with a merger, acquisition, sale of assets or equity or by operation of law.
