The Program offer different levels determined by the number of points a member has accumulated on their customer account with each purchase.

Points can only be converted into a coupon starting from 50 points obtained, and a single customer account cannot accumulate more than 200 points before they are converted into a coupon. NCDSM reserves all the rights to cancel a coupon of more than 200 euros and to split it into several coupons, the amount of which is equivalent to the initial coupon.
