FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT THE RECOGNITION REWARD CARD
How do I get a Recognition Reward Card?
Just pop into any House of Fraser store, ask a member of staff and they will be able to give you a Reward Card. If you buy something that day, you can start collecting Points straight away but remember, you'll need to register your card at www.houseoffraser.co.uk/rewardcard to be able to receive any Rewards to spend.
I have a Recognition MasterCard/Account Card, can I also have a Reward Card?The Reward Card can't be used in conjunction with a MasterCard or Account Card. If you have a MasterCard or Account Card you are already collecting a fantastic 3 Points for every £1 you spend plus all the other benefits, so there would be no additional benefit for you in having a Reward Card.
Can anyone have a Recognition Reward Card?
Yes, anyone can have a Reward Card as long as you are over 18 years old.
REGISTERING A RECOGNITION REWARD CARD
How do I register my Card?
Simply go to www.houseoffraser.co.uk/rewardcard and follow the instructions. You will need your Reward Card details to hand.
What if I don't have an email address?
As the Reward Card is managed solely online, an email address is necessary. If you have an email address but not regular access to the Internet, then we are happy for you to use one of our 'Order In Store' terminals to register your account.
What happens if I do not register my Reward Card?
If you do not register your card, not only will you never earn Rewards but you also won't get to hear about our exclusive Recognition Reward cardmember offers and events.
How many Points will I collect and how do they convert into Rewards?
You will collect 1 Point for every £1 (€1 in the Republic of Ireland) you spend with any method of payment. Once you have collected 500 Points, they will be converted into a £5 Reward (€5 in the Republic of Ireland) so the more Points you collect, the more Rewards you have to spend. We've made it really easy for you - every month we check your Points balance and if you have enough, Rewards are applied directly onto your card so there is no need for vouchers.
Can I collect Points online?
Yes, the Reward Card can be used to collect Points at www.houseoffraser.co.uk whenever you're signed into your account. Remember, you get Double Points for shopping online so that's twice the Rewards!
Can I collect Points when I buy a Gift Card?
No, Points cannot be collected when buying Gift Cards.
Can a Recognition Reward Card opened in Ireland be used in the UK?
Yes, any Reward Card can be used to collect Points in any House of Fraser store in the UK and Ireland, as well as online at www.houseoffraser.co.uk
How will my Points value be converted between Pounds Sterling (£) and Euro (€)?
If you are a Republic of Ireland cardmember, you will earn 1 Point for every €1 spent in store. If you shop online or in a UK store, whatever you spend will be converted from Pounds Sterling (£) to Euro (€) and Points will be collected and Rewards redeemed according to this € value. This works the opposite way for any UK cardmember shopping in the Republic of Ireland.
How long do my Points and Rewards last?
Recognition Points last for up to 12 months. After 12 months, if they have not been converted into Rewards, they will expire. Your Rewards will be valid for 3 months. We'll always try to let you know if you have Points or Rewards due to expire, either by email or on your online account.
How can I keep track of my Points?
We'll email you every month (with a statement) telling you how many Points you have collected and the value of any Rewards issued. You can also check your statement in 'My Account' at www.houseoffraser.co.uk at any time. Our till receipts will also show your Points balance as of the previous day, but Points for the latest transaction will not be included.
Will I be able to check my Points balance / Reward amount on my Reward Card at the till point?
No, unfortunately we can't check your Points balance at the till point. Please check in 'My Account' online or in your statement emails. However if you're spending a Reward in store, we can tell you what Reward value you have left on your card.
Will I be able to collect Points even if I don't have my Reward Card with me?
Not at the time, but you can have the Points added to your new Reward Card account up to 30 days afterwards. This can be done in any House of Fraser store as long as you bring the till receipt and your Reward Card with you.
Can my Points be transferred to another card?
Yes, you can set up a 'Points Transfer' to any other cardmember. That means that all Points you have on your card and any Points you collect in future will be transferred to them until you cancel the Points Transfer. It also means that any Rewards will be issued to that card rather than yours (so make sure you choose wisely!).
To set up a Points Transfer, log in to 'My Account' and select 'Set up a Points Transfer'. You'll need the number of the card you would like to transfer Points to. We'll send you an email to confirm that it has been set up but it may take up to 24 hours for the transfer to happen. Any Rewards already issued to you will remain on your card until their expiry date.
How do I cancel a Points Transfer?
To cancel your Points Transfer at any point, log in to 'My Account and select 'Cancel a Points Transfer'. The Reward Card number that you are currently transferring your Points to will automatically show on screen. Simply click 'Continue' and we will send you an email to confirm that you will now be collecting Points on your own account again within 24 hours .
How do I earn Rewards?
At the beginning of every month, we'll check how many Points you have collected. For every 500 Points, you will earn a £5 (€5 in the Republic of Ireland) Reward which we will apply directly onto your card.
How do I spend Rewards?
Rewards can be spent directly from your card at the till point or online checkout..
How can I keep track of my Rewards?
At the same time as we check whether you have enough Points to earn a Reward, we will send you an email (like a statement) letting you know how many Points you have collected and any Rewards you have earned. Alternatively, you can log in to your account and check your statement in 'My Recognition Summary' at any time.
If my card holds a £20 Reward balance, can it be used to pay for a purchase of just £10?
Yes, and there will be a balance of £10 left on the card until the Reward expiry date.
Can I use my Recognition Rewards to purchase anything at House of Fraser?
Recognition Rewards can be used to purchase any product from House of Fraser, in store or online, except Gift Cards, financial services and large kitchen appliances.
