An automatic renewal will extend membership for one additional year, beginning on the day after the previous term ends. Members can also purchase a renewal directly at each theatre or online at www.MyReelRewards.com. Members who do not elect to automatically renew their membership will have a 30-day grace period after the end of their current term to renew their membership. During this grace period, eligible Members will not be able to redeem rewards; however, they will not be able to redeem rewards. If after the 30-day grace period no renewal has occurred, the Member’s account will be reset to $0.00 and no balance will be carried forward. Rewards dollars may not be applied towards annual membership fees. VSS-Southern Theatres reserves the right to change the membership fee at any time, but changes will apply only to new and renewal memberships. Membership and renewal fees are nonrefundable. You will not lose any time on your membership by renewing early, and you will maintain the same card and account number when you renew.
