When do points expire?

Points will expire and be forfeited if an account has not earned or redeemed any points for 18 consecutive months. But don’t worry — we will notify you well in advance of any points expiration or forfeiture. See the official Buddies Rewards Program Terms & Conditions.

Where can I locate the QR insert card in eligible Blue Buffalo products?

The QR insert card is typically located inside, toward the bottom of the bag of eligible products. This is different from the SKU barcode located on the outside of the package.

As we continue to roll out the QR insert cards, please note there is a chance not every bag will contain a card. We are actively working to ensure every eligible bag includes a QR code and we appreciate your patience as we enhance this new feature.
