Reward Packages

Each reward package consists of one (1) iPad 32GB WiFi and one (1) free, one year basic GoodLife membership (“reward package”) valued at $848 + applicable taxes (iPad = $449.00 and one-year GoodLife membership = $399.00, excluding taxes. Taxes are applied by the Edvantage member’s residential province). The free membership to GoodLife can be:

  • Given to a spouse or dependent (“dependent” defined as being a son, daughter, step-son, step-daughter and/or a dependent person all who are between the ages of 12 and 25 and live at the same residential address as the Edvantage Member) to use at a GoodLife location of choice, or
  • Alternatively, added to the end of the selected Edvantage Member’s current membership at a GoodLife location of choice.

If the selected Edvantage Member gives away the GoodLife membership the recipient must add the membership to the end of their current GoodLife membership thereby extending their current membership for one (1) year. If the recipient does not have a current GoodLife membership, the recipient can use the membership as a new membership. If the Edvantage Member gives away the one year GoodLife membership, the membership will be administered at the GoodLife location of choice. If the Edvantage Member keeps the one year GoodLife membership for themself, the membership will be administered by Edvantage. Any upgrades, administration fees, extensions to the GoodLife membership rewarded are at the cost of the person using the membership. The iPad 32GB WiFi comes “as is”. Any upgrades, connection charges, service and provider costs are at the cost of the person receiving or using the iPad. Only one reward package per Edvantage Member, per family, per household or per address will be awarded.

If the selected Edvantage Member cannot be reached within two (2) weeks from the first attempt at notification, declines their reward or fails to return a release of liability with ten (10) days’ time to Edvantage, their opportunity to receive the reward will be declared ineligible, forfeited and another Edvantage Member’s name will be selected.
