It seems to be a virus or something of that kind - I received the same email, although I did not do any shops with Bare last month. When I tried to open the document, my Chrome browser turned red and I received a "Phishing alert" that the website is not safe.
You know, it's so easy to just delete the ones from "Chase", "Bank of America", "CVS", etc, when you know you have NEVER even been inside that business, moretheless deserve a reward or gift card or whatever. But it gets confusing and difficult when you get an e-mail from a business you DO business with!!!
I would be tempted to e-mail BARE direct and ask them if they sent such an e-mail, or check the BARE website and see if there is a warning there about the current spam. If not, I'd let BARE know about the e-mail.

I regularly get phishing emails that are supposed to look like they come from any one of the several banks where I have accounts. But, I never open those. I go to the bank site to check there for messages. Nada.

If the email is malicious, clicking on the link while on another computer will still give the sender access to your email. Contacts, content, etc. will be vulnerable. If you right-click on the link you should be able to see the sender's IP address. If it is different in any way, even one character, delete the whole thing. But, if you have opened the email, it is possible that you have already introduced a virus. Create a restore point on your computer before you do anything questionable, like installing a new program or making changes in your system. Hope all is well.
