A Cardmember can avail of only one (1) complimentary item throughout the duration of the Promotion, regardless of whether the spend is over and beyond the minimum spend requirement or if the Cardmember has more than one (1) approved qualified Card.

In case the Cardmember is found by BDO to have made more than one (1) redemption, submitted incomplete or invalid requirements, redeemed using fraudulent schemes, redeemed using charge slips used to redeem in other BDO promos, or cancels any or all of the qualifying purchases, BDO reserves the right to charge the cost of the Complimentary Item redeemed, at its full price to the qualified Card or directly collect the price of the Complimentary Item redeemed from the Basic or Supplementary Cardmembers.

10. Purchases must come from one (1) qualified Card. A Basic Credit Card account is treated as separate from the Supplementary Credit Card account.
