  6. If a Cardholder would like to set off the spending amount for the Eligible Transaction, the Bank will convert the DBS$ into HK$ amount at the rate of DBS$1 to HK$1.25 and credit the amount into the Applicable Credit Card account. Besides fully set off the spending amount, Cardholders can also choose to use DBS$ to set off part of it. Since DBS$ is in integral, after the adjustment of decimal places, Cardholders may not be able to fully set off the amount payable under certain circumstances. For avoidance of doubt, please refer to the calculation in the following examples:
    Spending amount (A) Number of DBS$ used (B) Converted at DBS$1 = HK$1.25 to set off the spending amount (C) (C = B ×1.25) Amount payable after set off (D) (D = A – C)
    Example 1 HK$180 DBS$144 HK$180 HK$0
    Example 2 HK$180 DBS$53 HK$66.25 HK$113.75
    Example 3 HK$83.90 DBS$67 HK$83.75 HK$0.15
  7. The Offer of this Promotion cannot be enjoyed in conjunction with the offer of other “InstaRedeem” promotion offers by the Bank and the merchants. If Cardholder's spending meets the requirements of other “InstaRedeem” promotion offer at the same time, the Bank has the right to determine which offer to be awarded in respect of that spending. When the spending has already been awarded under the Offer of this Promotion, the same spending cannot be awarded again under other “InstaRedeem” promotion and vice versa. In case of any disputes, the Bank reserves the right of final decision.
  8. The Bank has absolute discretion to determine the validity of a transaction and the eligibility of the Offer based on the details (including time and date) of the relevant transaction in the Bank’s record. If there is any discrepancy between the transaction record of a Cardholder and that of the Bank, the Bank’s record shall be conclusive.
