By the end of the month Bik Bok Life will switch to a new and simpler bonus program, which means that we say farewell to the Bik Bok Life app. This means that we will no longer have bonus levels, only bonus points on everything you purchase. For each SEK you shop for, you earn 1 point, and for every 400 points you earn you will receive a 20 SEK bonus check that will be valid for 12 months. We hope you’re as excited as we are! We’re pretty sure you’ll love it.
When switching to a new bonus program, there will also be some changes in the member terms and Conditions.
- We have included information about the new bonus program you will be able to use.
- As we say good bye to the app, the information regarding the app will no longer be part of the Terms and Conditions.
- Bik Bok AB is one of the chains in the Varner Group, and we want to inform you that the processing responsibility for your membership data is transferred from Bik Bok AB to Varner AS. This change will not affect your membership benefits in the Bik Bok Life and you have the same rights as before. The transfer is made for group administrative purposes and the legal basis is legitimate interest.
The new membership Terms and Conditions, that will be valid from March 31st, you will find below.
