By participating in the Scheme you agree to hold Asda harmless against any damage, loss, claim, cost or expense that you may suffer or incur arising from your participation in the Scheme, and any aspects related thereto and in connection therewith, including without limitation the use and/or enjoyment of any reward.
Who is Eligible?
All permanent Asda colleagues qualify to give and receive Star cards.

All Asda colleagues will be eligible to receive rewards made available by the Scheme.
How the Scheme works
- Colleagues can send and receive Star cards to recognise colleagues around the business
- Star Points can be awarded to colleagues for the hard work they do.
- 1 Star Point equates to £1 in value, to redeem against rewards listed on the website. Please see the Spend my points part of the website.
- In certain exceptional circumstances, to ensure fairness, Asda or the budget holder reserves the right to alter or amend the number of points awarded to an individual.
- All rewards are subject to availability and Asda reserves the right to withdraw any product or service. If a particular reward becomes unavailable, Asda reserves the right to offer a suitable alternative.
- All Points Values are correct at the time of publishing. Asda reserves the right to increase or decrease values without prior notice.
- Whilst every care has been taken in producing this collection, the products shown may not necessarily be the actual products supplied and all descriptions are given in good faith. However, no guarantee to the accuracy of the descriptions and product features or specifications can be given by Asda. Where errors are discovered Asda will endeavour to correct these errors.
- Warranties are as stated by the manufacturer.
- Asda reserves the right to alter or amend any reward featured at its absolute discretion.
- Rewards are not transferable. Only individuals who are nominated participants are eligible to receive a reward. Transferring of reward balances will not be allowed and may result in disqualification.
- There is no option for Asda colleagues to receive any form of alternative reward, in lieu of the actual reward on offer.
- No cash alternatives are available.
- As well as using their points to choose a reward from the online catalogue, points can be used to make a donation to one of Asda’s national charities - please refer to the ‘Spend my points’ section for further details on how to make such a donation.
- Points can also be transferred to a Star Points Code, sent via email. This code can be used on George.com.
- Points can also be used to credit a colleague’s Asda.com Grocery Home Shopping account, subject to having a Asda.com account already created.
