Overview

Step 1 – SIGN UP

Qualifying Romance dealers can sign up for our Romance SPIF program by clicking on this link – www.kimint.com/spif/signup. Please note you must be logged-in to your KIM account before accessing the SPIF signup page.

Designate a SPIF administrator (owner or store manager recommended). Your SPIF administrator will be our main point of contact for program updates and other communications.

Register all your sales staff and their e-mail addresses. Please double check the spelling of their names and e-mail addresses. Select the gift choice from our list of national merchants for each sales staff.

Step 2 – REPORT A SALE

Each time a Romance product is sold at your store, please report the sale at www.kimint.com/spif/salesreport by entering pertinent sales information. To enter sales of a previously un-registered sales person at your store, please visit www.kimint.com/spif/myspif. Once we receive your sales report, an e-mail confirmation will be sent out to both your SPIF administrator and your selling sales personnel.

Sales report must be submitted within 30 days of sale date.

Step 3 – RECEIVE GIFT CARD VIA E-MAIL

Your selling sales person will receive a gift card via e-mail from the merchant of his/her choice within two (2) weeks of reporting the sale. For each Romance engagement ring sold, a $25 gift card will be sent. For each Romance band sold - a $15 gift card will be sent.

If the sold ring or band is returned to the dealer AFTER we have already sent the SPIF gift card, then the selling sales personnel’s SPIF account will be charged.

If you prefer to receive an actual gift card by mail, please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a KIM customer – but not a Romance dealer, can I sign up for the Romance SPIF Program?

The Romance SPIF Program is only available to qualifying Romance dealers and only the Romance Collection and custom/modified engagement rings & bands are eligible for SPIF reward(s). If you are interested in becoming a Romance dealer, please contact us.

Do all Romance dealers qualify for the SPIF Program?

The Romance SPIF Program is available to all qualifying Romance dealers.

What’s the cost to me, the Romance dealer?

Absolutely nothing. KIM is offering the Romance SPIF program to boost our brand loyalty and reward outstanding performance of thousands of hard-working sales personnel of our Romance dealers. We believe it will be a WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone.

What if my customer returns the ring after the SPIF benefit was already received by my sales personnel?

Please call us and let us know so that we can properly charge that sales personnel’s SPIF account. This will allow us to reward the next sales personnel that “re-sells” that ring. If the DEALER does not report the return – we will not be able to pay the SPIF benefit again on the same item.

We signed up for your previous Romance SPIF program, what’s the difference?

Previously, your sales personnel earned “KIM BUCKS” that accrued for future redemption of KIM products. We listened to many sales personnel who said they would rather receive instant rewards. Furthermore, many told us that they would rather earn rewards from well-known retailers like Target, Apple, etc.

We are already signed up for the previous Romance SPIF program. Do we still need to sign up again?

Yes. Even if you have previously signed up for the Romance SPIF program, we still need your store to go thru the sign up process by visiting www.kimint.com/spif/signup. This is so that we have the correct information of your store personnel and their e-mail addresses in our system.

So what happens to our staff’s previously earned KIM-BUCKS?

Your staff can redeem the accrued KIM-BUCKS for merchandise at KIM as before.

Alternatively, we will be glad to convert the existing KIM-BUCKS to a gift card of equivalent value. Each KIM BUCKS will be equivalent to $0.70 gift card value. We will convert a minimum of $10 equivalent gift card value in increments of $5. For example, let’s say Jane (one of your sales personnel) has earned $441 in KIM-BUCKS. Jane could choose to buy $441 worth of KIM merchandise – or convert it to $305 worth of gift cards from a national retailer.

Please contact us at 800-275-5555 Ext 212 when you wish to make the conversion. We will hold the KIM-BUCKS in your previous account until December 31, 2016. After that date, all previously earned KIM-BUCKS will expire.

Can my sales personnel choose a gift card from another merchant than the ones you have listed?

For security and simplicity, we are only offering rewards from listed merchants. We plan to add more merchants, based on your future request.
