After the Account Verification of seven (7) purchases, you will receive a virtual reward for a free small Italian ice, frozen custard, or gelati (“Reward(s)”) from Rita’s via the App, which are redeemable at participating Shops. Loyalty Rewards are automatically earned with purchases made through online ordering via the App. It may take up to 48 hours for your Reward to become eligible for redemption, your Reward cannot be redeemed on the same day it is earned, and only one (1) purchase every four hours counts towards Loyalty Rewards.

Redeemed Rewards are deducted automatically from the Member’s account. If a purchase is voided/refunded, that purchase does not count toward Reward accumulation. If you attempt to redeem a Reward and the purchase is voided and/or refunded, you can use that Reward for future use. In the event of a dispute regarding Reward(s), you must notify us within thirty (30) days of the transaction in question and we will make a final determination related to the dispute.
