Bounce Energy AAdvantage® Miles Reward Program Terms & Conditions
The Bounce Energy AAdvantage® Miles Reward Program (sometimes referred to herein as the "Program") is designed to offer AAdvantage® Miles under the American Airlines AAdvantage® Program as rewards to certain of our customers who are members of the AAdvantage® Program, are eligible for and specifically request to participate in the Program, and make on-time payments of their monthly Bounce Energy electricity bills. The AAdvantage® Program refers to the travel rewards program established and administered by American Airlines, Inc., as such program may be in effect from time to time. For complete details regarding the AAdvantage® Program, please see www.aa.com.
Bounce Energy is sometimes referred to herein as "we," "our" or "us" and a customer is sometimes referred to herein as "you" or "your".
Our AAdvantage® Miles Reward Program is separate and distinct from our Loyalty Rewards Program and other rewards programs that we may establish from time to time. You cannot participate in both the Program and our Loyalty Rewards Program. If you affirmatively request and are eligible for the Program, you are electing to participate in the Program in lieu of any other rewards that may be otherwise available to you and/or provided to customers under Bounce Energy's Loyalty Rewards Program. In addition to other eligibility requirements, to be eligible for participation in the Program, you must affirmatively request the AAdvantage® Miles Reward Program. By selecting the Program, you will only be eligible to receive AAdvantage® Miles and will not be eligible for any other rewards such as electricity bill credits, movie tickets, companion airfare promotions, and/or other products, services, or rewards that we may from time to time offer under our Loyalty Rewards Program. The Program is an independent feature separate from our electricity service plans and these Program terms and conditions do not in any way supersede, alter or conflict with the Terms of Service Agreement, Electricity Facts Label, or Your Rights as a Customer documents associated with our customers and their electricity service plans.
To be eligible to participate in the Program, you must be enrolled in and receiving service under an electricity service plan that specifically includes the Program, you must provide and maintain a valid email in your account profile, and you must be a member of the AAdvantage® Program and provide us with your account number under the AAdvantage® Program. Only certain of our selected electricity plans entitle you to participate in the Program ("Participating Plans"). Participating Plan may be further limited by geographic services areas, and may not be available at all in your service area. Further, only certain of our selected electricity plans may enable you to select to be eligible for the Program. Accordingly, the Program is not available to all of our customers, and AAdvantage® Miles rewards are not available to all of our customers. If you all eligibility requirement necessary to participate in the Program, you will be enrolled within 30 days following your providing us with your AAdvantage® Program account number (and the on-time payment of your immediately preceding Bounce Energy electricity bill will count toward your rewards, if applicable). You are not required to participate in the Program and may opt out of the Program at any time by notifying us of your desire not to participate.
If you are on a fixed rate Participating Plan and your fixed term expires, you will remain in the Program if you continue service under the default variable price product associated with that fixed rate plan. If you change service plans directly from one Participating Plan to another Participating Plan, then you will continue to remain in the Program (and on-time payments under your prior Participating Plan will be honored). If you have service under a Participating Plan and move to a new address, and you remain a Bounce Energy customer at your new address under a Participating Plan, then you will remain in the Program. If your service with us is terminated, cancelled or disconnected for any reason, or if you transfer from a Participating Plan to a non-participating plan, then your participation in the Program will immediately terminate, and your Program account will be closed. This will not, however, effect your membership in the AAdvantage® Program. Only one member of your household shall be eligible to participate as a customer in the Program at a particular address.
