In addition to your Ongoing Obligations, we encourage you to visit a wide range of pizza restaurants that participate in the Slice program as often as you can, opt-in to monthly challenges, and share content on social media.

If your Membership is terminated, suspended, or revoked, you have no right to future Prizes. For instance, if your Membership is revoked on January 31, 2022, you are not entitled to future weekly twenty-five dollar ($25) credits to the Slice platform and future one-hundred twenty-five dollar ($125) Visa gift cards that would otherwise be distributed to Members from February 1, 2022 through the end of the Term.
