Q: How do I qualify for the $50 Bonus Reward?

Q: How has the Orvis Rewards Program (the “Program”) changed?

A: Beginning April 15, 2016, you will no longer earn Orvis Rewards Dollars that can be used at the point of sale. Instead, beginning April 15, 2016, you will receive a $25 Orvis Gift Card for every 2,500 points earned by using your Orvis Rewards Visa® card.

Any current cardmember with unused Orvis Reward Dollars earned under the Program prior to April 15, 2016 will be converted to points under the Program on April 15, 2016. Any unused, accumulated points earned under the current Program terms will remain on your Account.

Q: How will my current Orvis Rewards Dollars and points convert to the revised Orvis Reward Program?

A: All Orvis Reward Dollars available on your Account prior to April 15, 2016, as well as any accumulated points not yet converted to Orvis Reward Dollars, will remain on your Account at the same value on April 15, 2016 and thereafter. For example:

  • Orvis Rewards Dollars equaling $35.43 will be converted to 3,543 points.
  • Accumulated points totaling 1,576 will still total 1,576.
  • On April 15, 2016, your Account will have 5,119 points.
  • (3,543 points + 1,576 points = 5,119 points)

Q: How many points do I earn when I make a purchase somewhere other than with Orvis?

Once a customer reaches 2,500 points, points will be converted to a $25 Orvis Rewards Gift Card and automatically mailed directly to the cardmember’s address on the billing statement. Orvis Rewards Gift Cards can be redeemed at any Orvis retail store, online at Orvis.com, or via the Orvis Call Center.

Q: What is the difference between points and Orvis Rewards?

A: Cardmembers can earn “points” for every purchase: 3 points for each qualifying $1 spent at Orvis locations and 1 point for every $1 spent everywhere else.
