- Earning Cash Back Through Mode Earn Club Max.
Requirements and Limitations. Cash Back is only available through a membership to Mode Earn Club Max. In order to earn Cash Back through Mode Earn Club Max, all of the following conditions must be met:
(i) MODE MUST HAVE FIRST RECEIVED CASH BACK FROM THE MERCHANT FOR YOUR QUALIFYING PURCHASE AND YOU AGREE YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE PAYMENT IF MODE DOES NOT FIRST RECEIVE PAYMENT FROM THE MERCHANT FOR YOUR QUALIFYING PURCHASE;
(ii) Cash Back is paid in United States currency, provided that if Mode determines you reside outside the United States, Cash Back may be paid in your local currency, at Mode’s sole discretion;
(iii) you must be at least eighteen (18) years old;
(iv) you must have an updated and active Mode Earn App Account with your current and truthful information;
(v) you must have earned Cash Back for a Qualifying Purchase using the link from a Merchant Ad as supplied by Mode on the Mode Earn App, and which is traced by Mode to you;
(vi) you must be logged in to your Mode Account at the time you make a Qualifying Purchase;
(vii) you must not have requested a chargeback from your credit card company and caused Mode or a Third-Party Merchant to incur any fees as a result of submitting a chargeback request.
You are limited to a maximum of one (1) Mode Account on the Mode Earn App. If Mode determines in its sole discretion that you have more than one account on the Mode Earn App, or otherwise have engaged in any fraudulent or suspicious behavior, Mode reserves the right to immediately terminate all of your Accounts without any liability to you, and you agree to forfeit all payment credits in your Mode Account. Cash Back is only offered as part of the services provided as part of your Mode Earn Club Max membership and on the Mode Earn App and is paid on the net purchase amount of a Qualifying Purchase, which excludes fees, discounts, coupon codes, rebates, taxes, shipping costs, return and cancellation costs. All Cash Back payments are further conditioned on verification methods to prove your identity as may reasonably be requested by Mode. Without limiting any of Mode’s other rights in this Agreement, Mode shall not be liable to pay for any untracked Cash Back caused by conditions beyond its control.
MODE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE CASH BACK PROGRAM AND CASH BACK AMOUNTS OFFERED THROUGH MERCHANT ADS AT ANY TIME. MODE WILL USE COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, FOR ANY CASH BACK AMOUNT CHANGES. ALL CASH BACK IS SUBJECT TO MERCHANT EXCLUSIONS. EXCLUSIONS VARY AND ARE DETERMINED BY THE MERCHANTS. MODE IS UNABLE TO DETERMINE THE EXACT AMOUNT OF CASH BACK YOU WILL EARN BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR QUALIFYING PURCHASE, OR IF ITEMS YOU PURCHASE ARE ELIGIBLE FOR ANY CASH BACK, UNTIL THE MERCHANT PAYS MODE FOR ANY EARNED CASH BACK AMOUNTS DIRECTLY TRACED BY MODE TO YOUR QUALIFYING PURCHASE(S), YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR CASH BACK. IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR CASH BACK AND THE MERCHANT HAS PAID MODE A COMMISSION FOR YOUR QUALIFYING PURCHASE, YOUR CASH BACK AMOUNT WILL BE THE AMOUNT DISPLAYED IN YOUR MODE ACCOUNT. NO CASH BACK WILL BE EARNED IF ITEM(S) PURCHASED ARE INELIGIBLE FOR CASH BACK OR IF MODE HAS NOT BEEN PAID A COMMISSION BY THE MERCHANT FOR YOUR PURCHASE.
How Cash Back Works. Mode works with third party networks and vendors to offer Cash Back for Qualifying Purchases from a Merchant's Third Party Store after clicking through a Merchant Ad on the Mode Earn App. The Mode Earn App displays Merchant Ads and offers, which may show you Cash Back opportunities and the amount of Cash Back being offered by a Merchant if you complete a Qualifying Purchase of a service or product as more fully described in the Merchant Ad.
Each Qualifying Purchase must be directly tracked by Mode to your click of the Merchant Ad, and the Qualifying Purchase must be completed in the same session while you are logged in to your Mode Account. Mode is paid directly by its affiliate networks and vendors for specific purchases you make from Third Party Merchants within Mode's network of Merchants. Once Mode receives full and complete payment for your Qualifying Purchase by the affiliate network and/or Merchant, Mode will display the Cash Back credit in your Mode Account. It may take up to ninety (90) days from the date Mode receives payment from the Merchant for your Qualifying Purchase for your Cash Back to display in your Mode Account. No Cash Back will display in your Mode Account if Mode does not receive any amounts from the Merchant for your Qualifying Purchase.
Cash Back Modifications and Withholdings. Mode, in its sole discretion, may modify or remove the amount of Cash Back credited to your Mode Account at any time in its sole discretion if Mode determines you are engaged in suspicious activity, fraud, and/or have violated any term in this Agreement. Mode may delay or withhold payment as a result of suspicion of fraud, violation of any term in this Agreement, or any change to the Third Party Store's policies. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY FORFEIT ALL CASH BACK IN THE EVENT YOU HAVE INITIATED A CHARGE BACK REQUEST WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND MODE INCURRED FEES AS A RESULT OF THE CHARGE BACK REQUEST. YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT ALL FEE DISPUTES TO MODE PRIOR TO CONTACTING YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY TO ATTEMPT TO RESOLVE ANY FEE DISPUTES.
Cash Back Expiration. All Cash Back credited to your Mode Account on the Mode Earn App, and which has not been withdrawn will expire if you have not completed a Qualifying Purchase within one (1) year after your last Qualifying Purchase. Mode deems your Mode Account on the Mode Earn App and/or on the Mode Earn App to be inactive and abandoned if you have not made a Qualifying Purchase in each one (1) year period after your last Qualifying Purchase. You agree that you will forfeit all Cash Back, if one (1) year has passed since you have made a Qualifying Purchase on the Mode Earn App.
Taxes. You are solely liable for any taxes, levies, duties, or fees owed to any applicable government authority as a result of the Cash Back, refunds, or rebates are paid to you by Mode.
Mode Links Only. To qualify to receive any Cash Back, you must use the links to Third Party Merchant products and services in Third Party Stores that are provided in the Mode Earn App. If you access a Third Party link prior to a purchase transaction, and/or use any Third Party discount code, you may not be paid any Cash Back, because your purchase might be associated with an outside service that was not provided by Mode.
Cash Back Exclusions. Cash Back is only available for Qualifying Purchases and only after Mode receives the Cash Back from the Merchant you made a Qualifying Purchase from after clicking a Merchant Ad on the Mode Earn App. ALL CASH BACK IS SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL TERMS AND EXCLUSIONS LISTED ON THE MODE EARN APP, IN EACH MERCHANT'S THIRD PARTY STORE, IN THE TERMS OF THE OFFER IN THE MERCHANT AD, AND/OR ON THE THIRD PARTY STORE'S CHECKOUT PAGE.

- Mode Is Not Responsible for Third Parties
Mode is not responsible for any products and offers from third parties provided to you as part of your Mode Earn Club membership, including emailed offers or displayed through the Mode Earn App. You agree that your purchase from a third-party merchant is subject to such merchant's own terms and conditions applicable to such purchase. You agree that Mode is in no way responsible or liable to you for any products you purchase through third parties, including for any product liability claim, improper charges, delivery failures, pricing errors, or inaccurate product descriptions. You further acknowledge and agree that Mode is not liable or otherwise responsible for any breaches of credit card or debit card security or privacy by any third-party merchants.
Mode does not endorse, warrant or guarantee the products or services that are displayed through offers and other advertised links to third-party websites. Mode is not an agent, distributor, re-seller, broker or otherwise responsible for third-party merchants or the activities or policies of those merchant websites, or the products or services available on them. Mode does not promise or guarantee that the product details, prices, coupon availability or other service terms, rates or rewards offered by any particular advertiser or other third party are the best prices, best terms or lowest rates available in the market.
Mode has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices or opinions expressed in any third-party websites or by any third-party. In addition, Mode will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third-party site or service.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, these Terms and Conditions and any notices or other communications (including, without limitation, by e-mail and/or SMS) regarding access to and/or use of the Mode Earn Club, may be provided to Member electronically, and Member hereby agrees to receive electronic communications from Mode in an electronic form. Electronic communications may, and will, be delivered to the email address that Member provided to Mode when he/she signed up for Mode Earn Club. All Communications in electronic format will be considered to be in “writing.” Member expressly agrees that any notice or other communications required under these Terms and Conditions may be given in email form. In addition, Member expressly agrees that it is Member's sole responsibility to keep Member’s email address accurate and up-to-date by providing Mode with written notice of any changes to the same, and that Mode may reasonably assume that any communications sent to an email address provided will be received by Member. Member’s consent to receive communications electronically is valid until Member revokes his/her consent.
- Limitation of Liability
EXCEPT FOR OBLIGATIONS TO MAKE PAYMENTS UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR LIABILITY FOR INDEMNIFICATION, IN NO EVENT SHALL MODE, OR ANY OF ITS REPRESENTATIVES, BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR ENHANCED DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO, AND/OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF (i) WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE, (ii) WHETHER OR NOT MODE WAS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND (iii) THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT LIMITS OR DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE LIMITED OR DISCLAIMED PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW.
- Dispute Resolution.
10.1 Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Mode in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Mode agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to these Terms and Conditions, your participation in the Mode Earn Club or your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to these Terms and Conditions, your participation in the Mode Earn Club or your use of the Services, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms and Conditions. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU AND MODE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE ACTION AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
10.2 Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 10.1 above, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of law; or (iv) file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
10.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Mode will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Mode. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
10.4 Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail or electronic mail within the applicable statute of limitations period (“Notice”). Mode’s address for Notice is: Mode Mobile, LLC, One East Erie, Suite 525, Chicago, IL, 60611, United States of America or email@example.com. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Mode may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Mode must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor with a monetary award that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by Mode prior to selection of an arbitrator, then Mode will pay you the highest of the following: (X) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (Y) the last written settlement amount offered by Mode in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (Z) $15,000.
10.5 Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, then Mode will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Chicago, Illinois, but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Mode for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. Each party agrees that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
10.6 No Class Actions. YOU AND MODE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (OTHER THAN CLAIMS WHICH ARE NOT COVERED BY THIS SECTION 10). Further, unless both you and Mode agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
10.7 Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions, if Mode makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Mode’s address for Notice, then you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Mode’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between you and Mode. If you do not send such written notice, then your continued use of the Service following any such change means that you have consented to such change.
10.8 Enforceability. If Section 10.6 above is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 10 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 10 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described directly below will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions, your participation in Mode Earn Club, or your use of the Service.
11. Governing Law; Choice of Forum.
The laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern these Terms and Conditions, your participation in Mode Earn Club and your use of the Service. Your use of the Service may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws; provided, however, that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to any provision of these Terms. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum.
Mode reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions from time to time. We will give notice of material changes to Members. Notice to the Member will be considered given in the first instance of when such notice is provided by email to the Member's email address on file with Mode (the email Member indicated when he/she signed up for Mode Earn Club). Members agree that all changes to the Terms and Conditions will be effective and binding on the effective date indicated in the notice.
Member may not assign or transfer the rights of their Mode Earn Club membership in whole or in part under any circumstances. Doing so without the consent of Mode will be void and of no force and effect.
The expiration or termination of Member’s Mode Earn Club membership, shall not relieve either party from the obligations contained herein which accrue prior to the expiration or termination of the same, all of which shall survive the Agreement.
Any waiver by any party hereto of a breach of any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any other provision hereof and shall not be effective at all unless in writing. A waiver of any of the terms hereof shall not be construed as a general waiver by either party and such waiving party shall be free to reinstate any such term or condition with or without notice to the other party.
