About the App
Alcon Laboratories (South Africa) (Pty) Ltd (“Alcon”) has developed the following application (“App”), which is a loyalty program whereby a customer can earn points when purchasing a 30 or 90 pack of Dailies Total1 spherical contact lenses (“Product”). (This excludes the Dailies Total 1 Multifocal contact lenses)
The App may be used by any person (16 years of age or older, if a person is under the age of 18, parental consent is required) who, after having received a prescription, purchases the Product (collectively the “Authorised Users”). Once the Product has been purchased, the Authorised User may download the App and then scan the Product’s QR code provided by the optometrist and upload an image of their receipt/invoice (“Upload”).
One point will be earned for every new Upload. The Authorised User will be eligible to redeem a voucher instantly once six points have been collected. The voucher will be from Take Alot, worth R200, and may be redeemed at www.takealot.com.
