I can't speak to THOSE exact jeans but by and large, a rinse isn't going to fade nearly as much as a true raw/one wash, but unwashed and worn hard most dark denim is going to develop fade lines. It can't hurt to try. Starch will help.
And yeah, the card doesn't specify equal or lesser value. If a store gave you a hard time, which they really shouldn't (not being an ass to them always helps) you can always buy the cheap pair, get your 3rd stamp, walk over and pick up a selvedge pair and present your card for one free pair of jeans.
Also a flash sale started today, buy one shirt/sweater get one free. That includes sale and regular price. any shirt, any sweater in the store. That sale IS of course equal or lesser value.
