Membership Eligibility and Overview
- The M·A·C Lover Loyalty Program (“Program”) is offered at the sole discretion of Estée Lauder Hellas S.A. (“M·A·C Cosmetics”, “Company”, “we,” “our” or “us”). The Program is available to individuals for their personal use only and is limited to one account per individual. Corporations, associations or other groups may not participate in the Program. Individuals who are legal residents of Greece and at least 18 years or older and who provide and maintain a valid email address are eligible to become members. If you are underage, you may only participate in the Program with the consent and supervision of your parents or legal guardian. This Program is not targeted at children or intended for use by anyone under the age of 13. Employees of M·A·C Cosmetics and Company's collaborators can create an account in the Program for personal use. M·A·C PRO members are not eligible to participate in the Program. No purchase is necessary to join the Program. The Program may not be used for any business or commercial purpose and we may refuse to create an account for any reason.
- The Program is only available in M·A·C Cosmetics owned and operated stores in Greece and on www.maccosmetics.gr within Greece.
- Eligible individuals may enroll in the Program through one of the following options:
- Visit www.maccosmetics.gr (collectively, the “Site”) and follow the Program prompts to register for the Program.
- Visit a M·A·C Cosmetics owned and operated retail store in Greece and tell a store associate you would like to register for the Program.
- You are required to provide your full name, email address, and zip code in order to enroll. If you enroll at the Site, you must also create a password in order to enroll. In order to access certain Program benefits and rewards, you will need to provide us with your birthday, but birthday is not mandatory for Program enrollment. You will also have the opportunity to provide us with your mobile phone number and mailing address, but this information is optional. If you later wish to combine your offline account with the online one you should also provide your mobile number so as to validate the account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the accuracy of your account information and for updating it as required. You may update your personal information on the Site or by informing a store associate.
- Only one Program account may be associated with a single member and a single email address. In the event of a dispute over the identity of the member enrolled in the Program, the member will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of enrollment. For purposes of these Terms, the "authorized account holder" is the natural person who is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
- The Program is a way in which we reward and thank our loyal customers for purchasing our products and/or taking other Program related actions. You are able to unlock Program loyalty tiers by making eligible purchases or taking certain other Program actions. Eligible purchases and other opportunities to unlock Program loyalty tiers will be posted on the Site or may be published through other media (e.g., in-store, in marketing communications, social media, etc.). Once you unlock a certain loyalty tier, you may be eligible for certain benefits and/or rewards applicable to that tier, which benefits may change from time to time and may be offered on a limited basis. Visit our FAQs for a current list of available benefits and rewards.
- The Program is a tier-based program determined by the amount a member has spent on qualifying purchases within a single calendar year. There are 4 tiers with associated benefits – Lover, Seduced, Devoted and Obsessed. Program tiers are based on your qualifying purchases at M·A·C Cosmetics owned and operated retail stores in Greece and the Site, during a calendar year. When you join, you’ll automatically be placed in Tier 1, Lover and be eligible for all the benefits Lovers receive. Purchases of €150 or more in a calendar year are required to advance to the Seduced tier and qualify for Seduced benefits. Purchases of €300 or more in a calendar year are required to advance to the Devoted tier and qualify for Devoted benefits. Purchases of €450 or more in a calendar year are required to advance to the Obsessed tier and qualify for Obsessed benefits. For the year in which you enroll in the Program, tiers are based on your calendar year spend on qualifying purchases, commencing on the first date after your enrollment when you make a qualifying purchase using your Program membership identification number, and ending on December 31 of that calendar year. For example, if you enrolled in the program on February 1, 2016 and made your first qualifying purchase using your Program membership identification number on February 15, 2016, your Tier for 2017 will be based on your spend on qualifying products and services between February 15, 2016 and December 31, 2016. After the first year, tiers are based on a calendar year (Jan. 1 to Dec. 31) spend on qualifying products and services. In January of each year, your membership level will update based on the dollar amount you spent on qualifying products and services during the previous calendar year and your spending eligibility will be reset to zero for the new calendar year. For the first year when an already existing consumer enroll to the program we will calculate her/his purchase 12 months before and we will assign him/her on the respective tier (without any redeemable points but he/she would be eligible for the other benefits of the tier by day 1).
Exclusively for the 1st cycle of calendar year 2019 and due to special circumstances, the loyalty program is being re-extended until 31/12/2020. This means that your points and privileges are still valid until the end of 2020.

To earn points, rewards and benefits, your purchase must be made on qualifying M·A·C products and services. Qualifying purchases include regular priced merchandise and services, and exclude gift cards, sales tax, state fees, shipping charges, delivery charges and other excluded charges and/or purchases as specified by us from time-to-time, including, but not limited to, certain charitable products where funds are donated to M·A·C Aids Fund or any other charitable organization, value sets, select premium products and services, and other specified products.
