BDO has the sole discretion to determine whether a transaction is classified as airline, lodging and/or travel-related. BDO is dependent on the Merchant Category Classifications assigned by its Acquiring Bank on each merchant establishment to be able to identify qualified transactions.

4. A minimum of Php 250,000 total accumulated travel-related spend with a minimum spend requirement of Php 3,000 per transaction by the Basic or the Supplementary cardmember/s within the promotion period is required to qualify.

The Basic Credit card account is treated as separate from the Supplementary Credit Card account. Thus, the Basic and Supplementary Cardmember/s are not allowed to combine their purchases to qualify for the promotion.

For Cardmembers enrolled in Dual Currency Feature, PHP and USD transactions will be combined and the prevailing exchange rate upon the extract of qualified transactions will be used. Minimum spend and maximum Membership Rewards® Points or Asia Miles is based on total accumulated spend in both currencies.

6. To participate, both the Basic and Supplementary Cardmember/s must successfully register via bit.ly/AX5X-reg within May 31 to August 1, 2019 (The “Registration Period”). Invalid and incomplete registrations will not qualify.

The Basic Credit Card account is treated as separate from the Supplementary Credit Card account. Thus, both the Basic and Supplementary Cardmember/s are required to register to qualify for the promotion. As such, registration of the Basic Cardmember does not equate to the registration of the Supplementary Cardmember/s, and vice versa.
