We offer a service enabling you to enroll a credit card to earn cash back or other rewards or benefits (“Program Rewards”) when you make qualifying transactions at participating merchants within the Program (“Service”).
The following applies if you choose to add a Linked Card to the Program:
7.1 Card Eligibility
The Service is limited to credit cards only (Canada Only). Payment cards that are not eligible for use with the Program include, without limitation, debit cards, corporate and purchasing cards, prepaid and/or gift cards.
7.2 Transaction Eligibility
Not all participating merchant locations or transactions at participating merchants with your Linked Card may be eligible to earn Program Rewards. This may include payments made through third-party digital wallets or payment apps and other transactions not processed through the payment card network’s own system. Please review applicable offer terms within the Program.
7.3 Linked Card Information
You authorize our Service Provider (Fidel) to collect and store your Linked Card information and share it with the Payment Card Network so it knows you’ve linked the eligible card. Upon choosing to add a Linked Card, you also authorize the Payment Card Network to monitor transactions on your Linked Card(s) to identify Qualifying Transactions, and for the Payment Card Network to share details (including the last 4 digits of your Linked Card, the time, date and amount of the Qualifying Transaction, and merchant information) about the Qualifying Transactions with our Service Provider who will then share details with us so that we can provide the Service.
In order to add a Linked Card, you must accept any terms and conditions presented by our Service Provider.
7.4 Payment Card Networks
You agree that the Payment Card Network will not be liable to you or to any third party for any loss whatsoever resulting in connection with (directly or indirectly) the Terms and your participation in the Program.
To unregister or de-link a Linked Card, please edit your Linked Card(s) within your Account settings within the Program.
The Service available through the Program is set out below:
8.1 Linking Credit Cards:
You may elect to link one or more credit cards issued to you for a participating Payment Card Network (“Linked Card”). You are responsible for entering the correct information when setting up your Linked Card. Each Linked Card may only be linked to your Account once and may not be added to more than one Account. We are not responsible for any error on your part nor are we responsible if, for any technical or other reason, you are unable to link a specific card to your Account. For each Linked Card, you authorize us on an ongoing basis to retrieve, organize and present to you information about Qualifying Transactions.
Please review the “Linked Card Information” section of these Terms for additional terms and conditions applicable to Linked Cards.
8.2 Earning Cash
You will earn Program Rewards (i.e. Cashback, Points, Rewards) on the final price (including tax and any other applicable fees) of personal purchases of products or services from Participating Merchants paid for with a Linked Card. For clarity, you will not earn Program Rewards if you purchase products or services from a third party Service rather than directly from the Participating Merchant. For clarity, a third-party food delivery service that delivers products or services from a Participating Merchant is not considered a Participating Merchant.
Specific terms for earning Program Rewards applicable to an offer provided by a third-party merchant in the Program (“Participating Merchants) are set out in the Program. The maximum amount of Program Rewards that you can earn on any single Qualifying Transaction is $250.00.
Program Rewards are earned on the Canadian dollar equivalent of Qualified Transactions made in a currency other than Canadian dollars.
You can view your balance of earned Program Rewards in the Program. If there's any error in your balance of Program Rewards you must notify us within 60 days of any Qualifying Transaction. We will follow our internal operational procedures to track and account for all Program Rewards earned. In the event of any dispute or discrepancy regarding your balance of earned Program Rewards, we at our sole discretion will make the final decision on Program Rewards earned.
Earned Program Rewards for a Qualifying Transaction will be reflected in your Account within the Program but will initially be marked as “pending” amounts. It may take up to 7 business days from the date a Qualifying Transaction is made for the related earned Program Rewards to be reflected in your Account. If, in accordance with the Participating Merchant’s return policy, you cancel or return the products or services associated with the Qualifying Transaction your earned Program Rewards will be reduced as applicable.
8.3 Cashing Out
You can elect to do any of the following with balance of your Program Rewards in your Account. Options for cashing out your balance may change over time and will be set out in the Program. Terms applicable to cashing out balances are set out in the Program. The minimum amount of balance that you can cash out at any time is $25 CAD. The maximum amount of Program Rewards balance that you can cash out is $250 CAD.
8.4 Account Activity
To maintain your Program Rewards you must have performed in one of the following activities within the past twelve (12) months:
If you have not performed in one of the activities in subsections (i)-(v) for more than twelve (12) consecutive months, we reserve the right to debit your Account balance two dollars ($2.00) per month (“Maintenance Fee”) until you reactivate your Account, except where prohibited by applicable law. To reactivate your Account perform one of the activities noted above in subsections (i)-(v) or until your account balance is zero. Maintenance Fees are non-refundable, will not cause you to owe money to us and will not cause your account balance to become negative.
