  4. PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR DISCOUNT. Preferred Customers who are professional educators employed by an accredited primary or secondary school, public or private university or college, school district or art organization will receive a 10% discount on purchases at Blick Art Materials or Utrecht Art Supplies retail stores. Discount is valid only on non-sale, in-stock items, and cannot be applied toward catalog, Internet, or special orders. Discount does not apply to the purchase of gift cards. To qualify for this discount, educators must present both a valid Preferred Card and a current school ID card that includes their name and the name of the educational entity, which employs them at the time of purchase.
  5. WEB MATCH REBATES. Preferred Customers are eligible for Web Match Rebates, valid at both Blick Art Materials and Utrecht Art Supplies retail stores. A valid Preferred Card must be presented at the time of purchase in order to qualify for Web Match Rebates.
    1. AUTOMATIC WEB MATCH REBATE. The Web Match Rebate is equal to the difference between the net retail store purchase price and the total cost of the same purchases from the Blick on-line store, including all delivery and handling charges. Web Match Rebates will be calculated based on the total purchase amount, and not based on the price of individual items. Where the total purchase amount for identical items, including freight and other charges, is less through the Blick on-line store than the retail store total, Preferred Customers will be entitled to a Web Match Rebate. Rebate calculation is subject to the availability of technology to perform the match (i.e., communication lines, software).
    2. WEB MATCH REBATE ELIGIBILITY. Web Match Rebates apply to net retail in-store purchases, after all available product sale discounts, coupons or other discounts (including the Teacher discount) have been applied. All purchased merchandise items are eligible towards Web Match Rebate, with the exception of gift cards. Items that are not available through the Blick online store (e.g. certain products sold exclusively in retail and design center purchases) will be based on the net retail in-store price.
    3. INSTANT REBATE APPLIED. The Web Match Rebate will be calculated at the time of completing the total transaction at register and will be immediately applied. No further action is required of the customer. The calculation is based on a comparison of the total net retail price (after application of all discounts) to the dickblick.com website total net shopping cart price (after all applicable offers and discounts are applied). In the event the product is a retail-only product (i.e. not sold on dickblick.com site), the system will automatically use the net retail price shown on receipt. The result of the comparison will be shown below the subtotal net sales transaction line on the receipt as an instant rebate OR the receipt message will indicate retail store total pricing was the lower price. The Web Match Rebate is an instant rebate and, as such, is available only at the time of original purchase. Price adjustments at a later date are not applicable as Internet prices change frequently and comparison is only eligible at the moment of time when the transaction is completed at register.
    4. RETURNED MERCHANDISE WITH WEB MATCH REBATE. If returned merchandise is purchased with an applied Web Match Rebate at a retail store, and otherwise qualifies for a refund under the Blick Art Materials or Utrecht Art Supplies Return Policy, the Preferred Customer will be given a refund equal to the retail in-store price of the returned item indicated on the receipt minus a pro-rated portion of the Web Match Rebate that was applied. The pro-rated portion shall be calculated by multiplying the total Web Match Rebate applied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the net sale price of the returned item(s), and the denominator of which is the net subtotal of the original transaction as shown on the receipt. Refunds will be given in the same form of payment as the original purchase, in accordance with the Blick Art Materials or Utrecht Art Supplies Return Policy. Alternatively, the Preferred Customer may choose to receive an in-store credit for the full retail price of the return after the pro-rated portion of the Web Match Rebate has been applied. All returns of merchandise purchased pursuant to a Web Match Rebate remain otherwise subject to the Blick Art Materials or Utrecht Art Supplies general Return Policy, including, but not limited to, designation of non-returnable items and restrictions on the time frame for returns.
