BlueVolt will send you an email notice 90 days prior to expiration of any of your $BlueBucks. Your right to Redeem the expiring $BlueBucks shall terminate 90 days after BlueVolt sends the expiration notice email. BlueVolt and BlueVolt Affiliates shall not be liable to you if you do not receive the expiration notice email or if you are unaware of or unable to Redeem your $BlueBucks prior to the expiration date. All $BlueBucks Redemptions will be applied against your oldest available $BlueBucks first.

    8. If for any reason BlueVolt cancels any $BlueBucks accrued in your User Account, any unredeemed, cancelled or expired $BlueBucks will be forfeited. If you cancel your BlueVolt account any and all $BlueBucks accrued but not yet Redeemed will be forfeited immediately without reinstatement.

    9. $BlueBucks earned and identified in your User Account do not constitute personal property, nor do they equate to dollars or any other unit of monetary measurement, until Redeemed and you receive your Gift Card. $BlueBucks are not transferable by operation of law or otherwise to any person or entity and cannot be transferred to any other account.
