Kichler LightPro™ Rewards Program Account Terms and Conditions
Effective April 1, 2020
These Kichler LightPro Rewards Program Account Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) set forth the terms and conditions of Kichler Lighting LLC’s (“Kichler”) LightPro Rewards Program for participating professional landscape lighting contractor companies (the “Program”). The Kichler LightPro Rewards Program is an OnDemand program. OnDemand is a registered trademark of HMI, Inc located at 57 Providence Highway, Norwood, MA 02062 ("HMI").
Your participation in the Program is voluntary. By enrolling in the Program, you, the professional landscape lighting contractor company (“Member”), agree to these Terms as amended by Kichler, in its sole discretion, from time to time and any additional terms provided to you. You should check these Terms periodically for changes, as your continued use of the LightPro Rewards Portal (“ Rewards Site”) after changes to these Terms are posted means you are agreeing to accept those changes, whether you have reviewed them or not. These Terms may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions. Additional terms, conditions and other program guidelines will be provided on the Rewards Site and/or kichler.com, and are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms.
Professional landscape lighting contractor companies in the United States and Canada who purchase Kichler landscape lighting from participating distributors are eligible to participate in the Program. Member and its affiliates and subsidiaries will be considered a single Member for the Program.
Program membership is assigned to a company, not an individual. Consequently, employees of participating companies are not eligible to participate as a Member. However, all purchases of eligible Kichler products by Member’s employees are eligible for Reward Points, as defined below.
Members must satisfy all Program eligibility requirements as set forth in these Terms during the entirety of the applicable promotion period. Kichler reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine Program participation eligibility.

Each Member must assign a custodian, who is eighteen (18) years or older, to its Program account. The custodian must be the owner, principal, or CEO of the company, or someone assigned by the owner, principal, or CEO to serve as the custodian. If the custodian role is assigned, the owner, principal or CEO must inform Kichler by email at email@example.com of the name of the assigned custodian. The custodian is the main contact person and manager of the Program account. The custodian is the exclusive recipient of the Reward Points and any Reward Items redeemed as part of this program and, therefore, may use or disperse the Reward Items, as defined below, at his or her sole discretion.

Your access to this Site is at the sole descretion of Kichler.
Eligible Kichler Landscape Lighting Product
“Qualified Purchases” shall include landscape lighting and accessory SKU numbers found in the Kichler catalog with SKU numbers 15000 through 18000 only.“Qualified Purchases” shall not include outdoor lighting, non-landscape lighting or accessory SKUs such as outdoor ceiling fans or decorative lighting. Qualified Purchases also shall not include wire and/or cable SKUs even if those SKU numbers are 15000 through 18000.
Member Qualified Purchases must be reported to Kichler by participating distributors as Reported Dollars, as defined below. Members are eligible to receive Reward Points that can be redeemed for Rewards Items using the online program catalog provided on the Rewards Site.
Reward Point Issuance:
Reward Points will be issued on a monthly basis as authorized distributors submit Member’s Reported Dollars. Prior month purchases are to be provided on or before the 15th of the following month. Rewards Points are awarded once the files have been received and fully processed. Kichler reserves the right to request additional information and invoices to validate Qualified Purchases before awarding Reward Points.
All Reward Point values displayed on the Rewards Site are for Program administration purposes only. Points have no cash or monetary value. Points cannot be used as payment for or credits against any obligations to Kichler. Member’s right to Reward Points accrue only upon redemption, and not at any time prior thereto. Unredeemed Reward Points are not obligations owing to you or property belonging to you and shall not in any circumstances be considered to have been abandoned or otherwise reportable or escheatable within the meaning of the abandoned property laws of any state or jurisdiction. If you are disqualified from further participation in the Program, all unredeemed Reward Points shall be unredeemable, and no additional points shall be available.
“Reported Dollars” are the amounts a Member is invoiced for Qualified Purchases as reported to Kichler by participating distributors. All Qualified Purchases made at participating distributors by all employees of Member company are combined and recorded as Reported Dollars under a single membership account. Reported dollars are combined from all participating distributors and accumulated throughout the applicable promotional period. A running total of Reported Dollars for the applicable promotional period will be recorded in each Member’s account. “Reported Dollars” shall not include sales tax, freight charges, ineligible Kichler landscape lighting products and non-landscape lighting products.
Distributors are required to report all transactions that result in negative Reported Dollar values (i.e. returns), as Member’s account will be adjusted as necessary. All Reported Dollar values will be rounded to the nearest dollar.
Each calendar year, one January 1st, the Reported Dollar value on Member’s Account will reset to zero.
By participating in the Program, each Member authorizes its participating distributors to submit records of Member’s Qualified Purchases to Kichler on its behalf. Member is responsible for reporting any inaccuracies in its Reported Dollars to Kichler.
Reported Points Calculations:
Points are awarded each month to members as they purchase qualified products from an authorized distributor throughout the year (“Reward Points”). As an incentive for Members to increase their annual purchases, a purchase goal will be established each year and loaded on their dashboard. Reaching this purchase goal will allow members the potential to earn additional Reward Points on purchases above that goal. Reward Points will be issued as follows:
- Earn 1-point per $1 on all qualified landscape lighting purchases
- Earn 3-points per $1 on all qualified landscape lighting purchases over the predetermined goal. New Members will not have a purchase goal established for the first year but opportunities to earn additional Reward Points may be available throughout the year.
- Reward Points are eligible to roll-over year to year in order to save up for aspirational high-ticket Reward Items
Tracking Your Points:
Member’s Reward Point balance is reflected on the "Account Summary" page of the Rewards Site and can be viewed at any time by logging in using your Member User ID and Password. Member must activate an account in order to see their point balance and history. Electronic Reward Point balance statements will also be emailed each month.
Provided the Member account is activated and in good standing, Member can redeem available Reward Points for their choice of items from the online rewards catalog (“Reward Items”) at any time. Reward Items may include electronics, merchandise, digital downloads, adventures and local experiences, and/or the Kichler Fun in the Sun Trip (“Trip”).
You may redeem Reward Points for Reward Items currently featured on the Rewards Site at the time of redemption. Shipment times vary and are noted on the Rewards Site upon redemption. There may be specific terms that are applicable to a Reward Item, so review those additional terms that are presented to you at the point of redemption prior to completing your redemption request. When redeeming Reward Points, Member will not be able to redeem for any awards that exceed their current Reward Point balance.
Reward Points are available for redemption throughout the promotional period and have no cash equivalent. To redeem Reward Points, log in using your User ID and Password and browse the online rewards catalog. Add your chosen Reward Items to the shopping cart and check out when ready. Member will receive an acknowledgement of the Reward Points redemption and be prompted to complete or confirm shipping information. The Reward Points redemption confirmation number will be provided after Member completes the shipping confirmation. Be sure to print and retain a copy of this for future reference.
