If a particular reward had been featured in an earlier Rewards Guide but is not available in the current Guide, it is no longer available for redemption. Based on customer feedback, we continually review the list of rewards featured. Some of the rewards removed may also be items that are no longer offered by the retailer and we’ve hence replaced them with other rewards.
