1. Acceptance of terms

By participating in the promotion, you are deemed to accept these Terms.

2. Eligibility

2.1 Except as set out at clauses 2.2 and 2.3 below, the promotion is open to New Zealand residents, who are at least 18 years old and are a member of a KiwiSaver scheme.

2.2 The following persons cannot participate in the promotion:

(a) our employees, contractors, directors, or shareholders; or

(b) immediate family members of any of the above.

2.3 Acting reasonably, we may exclude any person from participating in the promotion.

3. How to participate

To participate in the promotion, you must switch to our recommended KiwiSaver fund using the platform at app.bettersaver.co.nz (if you have not already done so), and request a unique URL address from us by providing details of a friend, who is not a current or former BetterSaver client, and who is interested in our services, through the request form.

4. Reward

4.1 We will make a $50 contribution to your KiwiSaver scheme and a $50 contribution to your friend’s KiwiSaver scheme (the ‘reward’) if:

(a) your friend joins BetterSaver using the unique URL address we give you and switches to the KiwiSaver fund we recommend for them;

(b) your friend is still a BetterSaver client and invested in their recommended KiwiSaver fund 30 days after your friend joins BetterSaver and switches to their recommended KiwiSaver fund;

(c) you are still a BetterSaver client and invested in your recommended KiwiSaver fund 30 days after your friend joins BetterSaver and switches to their recommended KiwiSaver fund; and

(d) all other requirements of these Terms are met.

4.2 We won’t pay a reward if your friend is already a BetterSaver client, or if they join without using the unique URL address we give you (this includes where they join using a different unique URL).

4.3 Regardless of how many friends you refer, the maximum amount we will contribute to your KiwiSaver scheme is [$1000].

4.4 All participants must be eligible for a reward under clause 4.1 by 11:59pm on Sunday 31 October 2021 or such later date as we may determine in order to receive a reward.

(c) has breached these Terms, or any of our other terms and conditions; or

(d) has gained an unfair advantage in participating in the promotion.

5.3 Our determination of whether a reward is to be paid is final and binding, and no correspondence or other communication will be entered into.

5.4 We may refuse to pay a reward to a person if they do not provide us with proof of their identity (such as by providing a copy of their driver’s licence, passport or birth certificate), their residential address, their IRD number, proof of a participant sharing the unique URL address with the friend (if applicable) and any other information required for us to make a contribution to their KiwiSaver account or comply with other legal requirements.
