You’ve earned plenty of Rewards points this year, haven’t you? If you’re a Red Line Club member, you earn those points when you take advantage of many of our HWC offers during the specified Priority Window. The points are redeemable for the very special edition Rewards Priority Car, which you can only get from us by being in the Red Line Club. Plus, there are even more products you can get with your points.
Our Rewards Priority Car edition for 2013 is the Beatnik Bandit — a very special tribute to car culture icon Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. His actual 1:1 car, a celebrated legend of car shows in the early 1960s, was built on a modified 1955 Olds chassis with futuristic bubble top and joystick steering. Our 1:64 casting was a member of the very first year of Hot Wheels releases.

How It Works
All year long, RLC members earn points every time they purchase an HWC Series Twelve car or an RLC sELECTIONs car during the Priority Window of availability (24 hours for the Series Twelve cars and one week for the sELECTIONs cars). These points are added to your “My Account” page in the Shop after your credit card has been charged and your purchases have shipped.
- Each HWC Series Twelve car you purchase is worth three points
- Each RLC sELECTIONs car you purchase is worth two points
- Occasionally, we may offer points for other sales; watch each sale for details.
Beginning November 07, 2013, you can use your points to place an order for the cars you want. You must have accumulated at least nine points, since each item will cost you nine points. This includes the Rewards Priority Car and the HWC Series cars or Multi-car packs. You can order as many cars, or as many of each car, as you have enough points for at the time you place your order — but you must have at least nine points to redeem for any one RLC 2013 Rewards Priority Car or HWC Series Six, Seven, Eight or Nine cars or Multi-car packs you order.
For example, if you have only ten points, you are eligible to order only one item, and the other point remains and can be combined with any more points you gain during further purchases this year. At the end of the year, any unused points are lost — Rewards points will not carry over into the following year. Again, make sure that you have enough points for the items you are ordering, and also note: order carefully, as orders are final and cannot be changed once placed.
NOTE: It is each member’s sole responsibility to check their Shop account to confirm how many points have been accumulated. Make sure you have enough points for the items you are ordering (number of items x 9). If you do not have enough points for the total amount of items ordered, or all required fields of the online order form are not accurately completed, your request will be deemed invalid. Make sure you read the RLC Member Agreement for all the rules.
Note also that there will be two separate order forms: one for the Rewards Priority Car, and one for the HWC Series Six, Seven, Eight and Nine cars and Multi-car packs. You will need to use the proper form for each.
Since the Rewards Priority Car will be made to order at the end of the year, you have until 10:00 PM PT on Friday, November 22, 2013 to place your order. (This will be after all of our sales of the year where Rewards points are offered, so you can use all the points you accumulate.) You can place orders before the final date (whenever you have enough points to do so), or you can wait and place one order for all the items you want at once. Either way, you should have plenty of time to place your order. However, the Rewards Priority Car will not be produced until after the November 22 cutoff date, once all the received orders have been processed.
Each time you place an order, you should receive an e-mail from us confirming which item or items you’ve just ordered. Please be patient – this will not be immediate. Then, once your order has been entered into the system, the points you have used for that order will be deducted from the total Rewards Points in your Shop account. It may take up to five business days for this deduction to display.
NOTE: All the HWC Six, Series Six, Seven, Eight and Nine cars and Multi-car packs you order from each membership will be shipped at once to the same address. The Rewards Priority car will likely ship in spring of 2014, and we will notify you by e-mail once shipping is under way. There is no shipping cost (though residents of Canada will still need to pay a $5.00 USD duty processing fee).
So check your Shop account regularly to see how many points you have and how many points you’re going to need. You can find the Rewards Priority Car in the HWC Offers department, on the RLC Rewards shelf. Don’t forget to reward yourself!
