The GEMS REWARDS Programme is our way of saying ‘Thank You’ to our parents and staff. Designed to reduce the impact of school fees and further enhance the lifestyle of our families and staff, the programme comprises of three key elements:
a) The GEMS FAB Credit Card that offers up to 7% discount on school fees.
b) The GEMS Ambassador Programme – offering cashback benefits to parents who refer children into participating schools, upon successful enrolment.
c) Everyday Savings – through a network of partners across dining, retail, travel, and entertainment etc. GEMS has negotiated offers and discounts that significantly contribute to everyday savings.
d) GEMS Points - Earn GEMS Points through select partners or by making purchases on The Marketplace
We will continue to build this network and widen our offering, as we strive to deliver better offers every day.
The GEMS Rewards App is reserved exclusively for the GEMS Community, including GEMS families and staff.
Upon enrolment, you will receive an email from GEMS, which includes your Membership details, as well as your GEMS Rewards App login information.
These terms and condition govern the collection and use of points and set out the terms of the contract between GEMS MENASA Cayman Limited (GEMS, us or we) and each Member. A Member will be automatically registered with the GEMS Points collection programme (GEMS Points) by downloading the App and creating and account (an Account) and can then earn points through various Earning Channels. If you apply to register an Account or use the App you accept these terms and conditions. We may refuse an application to register an Account for any good reason.
- GEMS Points Earning
- GEMS Points can be earned across the following channels (each an Earning Channel) pursuant to:
- Select transactions with GEMS Exclusive Merchants displayed in the App
- Select transactions undertaken in The Marketplace
- the Ambassador Programme
An account to record the GEMS Points earned or redeemed by each Member will be established by us. The number of GEMS Points currently credited to a User's GEMS Points Account can be viewed on the App by swiping left on the home screen.
GEMS Points balances cannot be pooled with the GEMS Points balances of any other Member at any point of time
- GEMS Points balances cannot be transferred to any other Member at any point of time.
- GEMS Points may only be earned at the time a relevant transaction through an Earning Channel is completed and cannot be earned or claimed retrospectively.
- GEMS Rewards reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to adjust (including by deduction) the number of GEMS Points accrued or credited to an Account, if GEMS Points have been accrued or credited in error (including as a result of error arising from a misrepresentation, negligence, or technical malfunction) or for any other reason resulting in the GEMS Points being invalidly accrued.
- We will correct an Account if it is shown to our reasonable satisfaction to be incorrect however, any decision to do so will be subject to the Member producing clear records demonstrating an error. Our decision is final in relation to any correction.
- If a transaction on which GEMS Points are earned or issued or redeemed is cancelled, reversed or not completed, we will reverse the associated adjustment to the GEMS Points. Our decision is final in relation to any such reversal.
GEMS Points Redemption
- GEMS Points can only be redeemed against the school fees that a Member is liable to pay to GEMS or any of its affiliates (GEMS School Fees). All redemptions must take place through the designated Oasis Portal that is provided by GEMS.
- Each GEMS Point shall be deemed, for the purposes of redemption against GEMS Schools Fees only, to have a value of AED0.09. GEMS Points cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash.
- GEMS Points cannot be redeemed until credited to a GEMS Points Account. Depending on the Earning Channel it will take different periods to notify us of points to be credited. We are not responsible for a failure, delay or error by any third party failing to notifying us of GEMS Points to be credited.
- GEMS Points cannot be redeemed unless the Member has, at the time of the redemption, a minimum of 5,550 GEMS Points (the Minimum Points) credited to his/her Account. We reserve the right to vary the Minimum Points from time to time.
- A Members may choose to redeem the GEMS Points credited to their Account in full or in part only, however, conversion that would result in a Member holding a fraction of a GEMS Point will be rounded up to the nearest whole GEMS Point.
- If a Member does not redeem the entire value of his/her GEMS Points, the balance value will remain in their Account and may be used for future redemptions provided that he/she has the Minimum Points credited to his or her Account at the time of redemption.
- GEMS Points once redeemed cannot be used again.
- GEMS Points once redeemed cannot be reversed.
- GEMS Points cannot be transferred to or redeemed by another Member or any person other than the Member to whose Account those GEMS Points are credited.
- If the value of the invoice for GEMS School Fees is more than the value of the GEMS Points credited to that Member's Account then the balance amount must be paid by the member using a valid payment method (as determined by GEMS) simultaneously with the completion of the redemption.
- GEMS Points which are not redeemed by a Member will remain credited to his/her Account for a period as governed by the GEMS Rewards Expiry Policy. Expired GEMS Points will be deducted from a Member's Account and cannot be re-credited to the Member's Account.
- GEMS Rewards reserves the right (in its absolute discretion) to adjust the number of GEMS Points accrued or credited to a Member's Account if the GEMS Points it determines that were credited or accrued invalidly (including but not limited to as a result of error or misrepresentation, negligence, or technical malfunction).
Expiry and Termination Policy
- GEMS Points will have a minimum expiry of 11 months and 30 days and a maximum expiry of 23 months and 30 days from date of earn. All GEMS Points earned during an Academic Year (meaning a 12 month period commencing on 1st September and ending on 31st August) will expire on the 31st August of the following Academic Year (meaning, for example, that GEMS Points earned on 2 September 2018 will expiry on 31 August 2020).

We may also, on notifying the Member, immediately suspend or terminate the rights of any Member, and/or close any relevant Account, if they breach these Terms and Conditions, if we reasonably believe that a Member has dealt with GEMS Points in a manner not permitted by these Terms and Conditions or any Earning Channel Partner, if there is any theft from or misconduct in connection with us or any Earning Channel Partner, if a Member supplies any false or misleading information to us or if they are abusive or offensive to any member of our staff. A Member can close his/her Account at any time by notifying us. If an Account is closed all rights to redeem GEMS Points from that Account are lost.
- We may terminate or suspend the GEMS Points programme at any time but will give as much notice as we reasonably can before we do so. If this happens all Accounts will be suspended or terminated.
