You will move up in status during the calendar year based on your net purchases (total purchases less returns) in the calendar year.

How Long Will I Maintain My Tier Status?
As soon as you qualify for a new tier, you will receive an email welcoming you to that tier. You will maintain that status for the remainder of the current calendar year and the following year.

Please allow three business days for your purchase to be reflected in your total qualifying net spend.

Achieving and Maintaining Status
Currently there are four (4) levels of benefits in the WHBM Rewards program: Welcome, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Benefit level is determined by your qualifying net purchases made at White House | Black Market (boutiques, outlets, at whbm.com or phone orders) within each calendar year. Qualifying net purchases are the amount of your merchandise purchase, excluding purchases of gift cards, previously purchased merchandise, shipping, taxes and certain excluded merchandise, less returns.
- You will automatically be enrolled as a WHBM Rewards member at the Welcome level, unless the total qualifying net spending of your initial purchase meets or exceeds $500. Upon spending at least $500 in qualifying net spend on or within the calendar year, you will proceed to Silver status.
- To achieve Silver status, you must spend at least $500 in qualifying net spend in a single calendar year.
- To achieve and/or maintain Gold status, you must spend at least $1,000 in qualifying net spend during each calendar year. If your qualifying net spend does not meet or exceed $1,000, your status will revert to the Silver level.
- To achieve and/or maintain Platinum status, you must spend at least $2,000 in qualifying net spend during each calendar year. If your qualifying net spend does not meet or exceed $2,000, your status will revert to either the Gold or Silver level depending on your total net spend during the prior calendar year.
- For purchases made at whbm.com, qualifying net spend will be based on the shipping date, rather than the purchase date.
Once you reach a specific level in the Rewards program, you will become eligible to receive the benefits of that level for the remainder of the current calendar year. Calendar year is defined as January 1 - December 31. With each new calendar year, we will determine your benefit level based on your total qualifying net spend in the prior calendar year. If your net spend in the prior calendar year were not enough to maintain your benefit level, we will notify you of your new level. Regardless of your qualifying net spend for the calendar year, you will not drop below Silver status. Your qualifying net spend for the calendar year will start at zero ($0) every January 1.
For example, if your qualifying net spend in Year 1 is $1,500, you will enjoy the benefits of our Gold level for the balance of Year 1 and will start Year 2 at the Gold level. However, if in Year 1 you returned $1,400 of the $1,500, your qualifying net spend drops to $100. You will enjoy the benefits of our Gold level for the balance of Year 1, and will start Year 2 at the Silver level.
We will provide you with periodic updates throughout the year to inform you of your qualifying net spend and your current level.
When you achieve Silver status, we will notify you via email or by mail, so long as you have a valid email address and/or U.S. mailing address on file. You are eligible for full WHBM Rewards status benefits at the Silver level immediately after reaching the $500 threshold and do not need to wait to receive your notification. To receive your benefits in stores, please see a store associate. In order to receive full WHBM Rewards status benefits at whbm.com, you must sign in and register using your existing WHBM Rewards member number.
As a Silver level member or higher, you will receive 5% off every merchandise purchase at White House | Black Market boutiques and outlets in the United States, whbm.com or at 877.948.2525. The 5% discount is not valid when used in connection with the purchase of gift cards, previously purchased merchandise, taxes, shipping and certain excluded merchandise.
As a Silver level member or higher, you will automatically receive Standard Parcel Post shipping (estimated 7-10 days for delivery) free for all purchases made on whbm.com for delivery within the continental U.S. As a Silver, Gold or Platinum level member, you may upgrade to Express delivery for $7.95 and Two Day delivery for $14.95.
