Returns

Merchandise returns must be made in accordance with Company's return policy available at https://www.madewell.com/help/returns_exchanges.jsp. Upon the return of an item, the spend amount applied to Program tier status for the original purchase will be deducted from the Member's account.

Eligible purchases

Purchases of merchandise and/or services, after promotional offers have been applied, before taxes and shipping charges have been applied, made at any Madewell store in the United States or online at madewell.com, count toward your Program tier status. The amount of a purchase made with gift cards, rewards cards and/or benefit dollars as method of payment will not be applied to tier or benefit earnings. Additional items may be excluded from tier and benefit accumulation at the sole discretion of Company.

Tier Status

Following initial tier placement, Program tier status is based solely on the total (non-gift card/rewards card/benefit earnings) spend during the preceding calendar year, between January 1 and December 31. Following the conclusion of that qualifying calendar year, Member tier status will be valid for the next benefit year after qualification. Annual tier assignments occur in January of each year. Members will be upgraded during the benefit year if their qualifying spend exceeds their tier threshold. Members should allow 30 days for purchases to process before Member is placed into a different loyalty tier. For more information on Program tiers, see www.madewell.com/myaccount.

Valid email address

A current, valid email address is required for a Member to be eligible for select benefits, offers and updates. Member must notify Company of change of email address by updating Member account information online.
