Terms and Conditions

The Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift Program is a loyalty reward program that is operated by Gordo’s Diner and our loyalty program provider, ACKROO Inc. The loyalty program operates only at Gordo’s Diner restaurant. In using the Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift card, you are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions of the Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift Program.

How to Register in the Program

You can get a Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift card at our location by requesting one from our staff. The Card may only be used once the server at our cash station activates it by electronically “reading” it into the Gordo’s point of sale computer, which will occur at the same time the card recipient makes their first purchase. Once activated, Gordo’s rewards will begin to accrue to that specific card. However, a cardholder will only be able to redeem Gordo’s rewards after the cardholder registers the card online at gordosdiner.com/loyalty

The Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift card is not a credit card or debit card but merely a rewards accumulation card. The Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift card is the property of Gordo’s Diner and it may be revoked at any time by Gordo’s Diner at its sole discretion. Gordo's reserves the right to cancel the card of any member (revoking all accumulated cash rewards) should a participant not follow/or abuses the Program and/or its Terms and Conditions.

It will be at the sole discretion of Gordo’s Diner if anyone other than an individual can obtain an account as a “registered entity” (i.e., a business, partnership or corporation). Participants are responsible for notifying Gordo’s Diner of any changes in their member profile information such as mailing address, telephone numbers and e-mail address. Any failure to notify Gordo’s Diner of any such changes shall be held at the responsibility of the Participant. Gordo’s shall not be held liable for misdirected communication such as mail, telephone or email communications, or any consequences resulting from a Participant not updating their contact information.

Collecting Gordo’s Rewards

Once a Card is activated, each time an eligible purchase at Gordo’s Diner is made, the Participant will earn Gordo’s rewards according to the Gordo’s rewards schedule contained in these Terms and Conditions and at the rate posted on the Gordo’s Diner website. Only one Gordo’s account number is issued per customer and only one Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift card is permitted per customer. Please note that anyone may use a Participant’s primary card, and in so doing all Gordo’s rewards accrued through any such usage will accrue in the name of the Participant associated with the card number being used.

Customers are required to present their Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift card before the final transaction payment is taken by the store clerk. If a participant does not present their card at the time of purchase, no retroactive accumulation of Gordo’s rewards will occur. Thus, the only opportunity to collect Gordo’s rewards is at the time of an actual purchase in coordination with Participant presenting their card.

Gordo’s rewards will be awarded in accordance with the Reward Schedule posted on the Gordo’s Diner website. (In the case of any difference between the set reward schedule posted on the Gordo’s Diner website (www.gordosdiner.com) and reward schedules published elsewhere, the reward schedule posted on the Gordo’s Diner website shall be taken as accurate. Gordo’s rewards will be awarded before any taxes. Gordo’s rewards will be awarded on the net pre-tax price of an item after any discounts. In the case of special offers that award additional Gordo’s rewards based on a multiplier of the base reward schedule, selected in-store merchandise and/or services already subject to earn additional Gordo’s rewards may or may not be excluded from any additional offers.

Gordo’s rewards will not be issued on the purchase of the following items/services: gift cards, alcoholic beverages, catering trays and platters, items excluded by law and other items specified as exclusions from time to time.

Gordo’s rewards issued on a transaction will be shown on a separate receipt issued at the time of purchase. In the event of communication loss with the server that records the accrual of Gordo’s rewards, a customer will be awarded automatically when the system regains communication with the server and the new balance will be printed on the customer’s receipt.

In the event of a discrepancy between the Gordo’s rewards issuance and/or balance on a receipt and/or those posted online and/or as contained in Ackroo Inc.’s internal database, the information appearing in Ackroo Inc.’s database will be taken as accurate. The information appearing online is initially generated from point of sale computer transactions as they occur at Gordo’s Diner, and for this reason the information appearing online may not accurately reflect data contained on Ackroo’s internal database.

If a Gordo’s Loyalty & Gift Program participant has an issue or feels there is a discrepancy with the value of Gordo’s rewards earned on a particular transaction, the participant has 30 days from the date of the transaction on their receipt to contact gordosdiner@gmail.com and report on the matter; after 30 days from the date of a respective transaction, any respective amount of Gordo’s rewards appearing in relation to that transaction in Ackroo Inc.’s database that has not been questioned by a program participant will be deemed not to be contested and no adjustments will be made. If it’s discovered that Gordo’s rewards were not properly issued or redeemed, Gordo’s Diner, in its sole discretion reserves the right to make any adjustments to the Gordo’s rewards to correct any discrepancies.

When a participant makes a return and/or exchange, the Gordo’s rewards will be deducted from the participant’s account. The amount of rewards deducted will equal the amount of Gordo’s rewards issued for the returned item or service. If the return and/or exchange relates to an item/service acquired through the redemption of Gordo’s rewards, all redeemed Gordo’s rewards will be returned in their format.

If there is no activity on a participants account for 12 consecutive calendar months, Gordo’s Diner reserves the right to terminate the account and no credit of any kind will be given to the participant. The accumulation of Gordo’s rewards does not entitle the participant to any financial stakehold as Gordo’s rewards remain the property of Gordo’s Diner in perpetuity.

Gordo’s Diner may from time to time offer extra Gordo’s rewards on selected in-store merchandise and/or services. In these cases, the amount of extra Gordo’s rewards advertised in-store will be awarded in addition to the base amount awarded pursuant to rewards schedule posted on the Gordo’s Diner website (in the case of any difference between the rewards schedule posted on the Gordo’s Diner website and reward schedules posted elsewhere, the Gordo’s Diner website shall be taken as accurate). Items which are made eligible for earning extra Gordo’s rewards pursuant to the rewards schedule are subject to a limited purchase of one item per visit/transaction unless otherwise stated.
