WHAT IS AKIRA REWARDS?
AKIRA Rewards is a loyalty program rewarding our customers with special discounts and other opportunities. (also known as AKIRA Exclusive)
Points are earned through qualifying purchases made on shopAKIRA.com or in our physical stores. Once a point threshold is reached, you will receive a reward to be applied to your next qualifying purchase.
HOW DOES AKIRA REWARDS WORK?
You earn one point for every qualifying dollar you spend. Points are not earned on tax, shipping, gift cards, and select special items.
Once your program balance reaches 500 points, AKIRA automatically converts 500 points into a $10 reward following a brief waiting period. The reward can be applied toward your next qualifying purchase in store or online.
Your $10 reward must be used in one single transaction. Your subtotal when redeeming your rewards must have a minimum of $10 in order to apply the reward.
Where can I earn/redeem AKIRA Rewards points?
You can earn and redeem points through our online store, www.shopAKIRA.com, or at any of our 30+ physical store locations. To find a store near you, visit www.shopakira.com/store-locator.
At what rate do I earn points on my purchases?
Rewards members earn 1 point per every $1 spent, excluding dollars spent on tax, shipping, gift cards, or select special items.
How much does it cost?
It’s absolutely free to enroll.
Can I retroactively add points from previous purchases when I was not enrolled in the current AKIRA REWARDS?

How do I opt out or cancel?

Do my points and/or rewards expire?

How many points do I need to earn my discount, and how do I redeem the rewards?

If I return any items that were purchased with an AKIRA reward, do I get my rewards and points back?
Rewards are returned to the customer. Points earned for a purchase are deducted when a return is processed.
Is there a limit to the amount of points/rewards I can earn?
No, the sky's the limit! We do encourage you to spend your rewards as you earn them as opposed to allowing them to accumulate, as reward terms may be subject to change.
Can I transfer my points to my friends and family?
No, points and rewards discounts are automatically linked to your customer account and are not transferable.
