Please read and keep this Rewards Program Agreement (the “Rewards Agreement”). If you need a physical copy of this Rewards Agreement or if you have any questions, you can contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://www.onyxprivate.com (the “Website”).

Acceptance of Terms
By opening account and using your Card, you are eligible to participate in the Rewards Program. If you participate in the Rewards Program, you agree that the terms and conditions contained in this Rewards Agreement, as modified from time to time, will govern your participation in the Rewards Program. We reserve the right to update the Rewards Agreement at any time and may notify you of such changes via the Website or by email at the last known email address as provided by you, but we have no obligation to notify you of every update.
A. How Points Are Earned
1. Only authorized charges for the purchase of goods or services made with your Card, less any credits for charge reversals or other refunds (“Eligible Purchases”), will earn Points. “Points” are the rewards you earn under the program. You may also see, “ONYX Rewards” when referring to the Points you can use. Eligible Purchases do not include transfers from Onyx accounts to other Onyx accounts, yields received or investments made on Onyx platform, cash advances, balance transfers, any checks that access your account, items or services canceled or returned for credit, disputed or unauthorized purchases, fraudulent transactions, traveler’s checks, foreign currency purchases, money orders, ACH and wire transfers (and similar cash-like transactions), lottery tickets and gaming chips (and similar betting transactions), prepaid cards or cash equivalents, loads or reloads of balances on gift cards or person to person payments, account fees and charges (such as finance charges), fees for services you elect to receive through us, Rewards Program fees and charges, purchases made with points, interest, or purchases made when your Card is not in good standing. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION WHETHER A PARTICULAR TRANSACTION IS AN ELIGIBLE PURCHASE OR TO INCLUDE OR EXCLUDE OTHER CHARGES FROM THE DEFINITION OF ELIGIBLE PURCHASES. Your Points balance may be reduced by any returns, credits or other refunds, charge reversals, chargebacks or other disputes, and a negative balance may result if such reductions for a particular billing cycle exceed Points for purchases of goods and services. If your Points balance is negative, we will apply any Points that you subsequently earn to your balance, and no Points will be redeemed for rewards until your balance becomes positive. Points cannot be purchased or transferred.
2. For each dollar of Eligible Purchases charged to your Card, we will within a week of the settlement of your Card transaction to your account reflect in your Onyx Rewards balance:
a. 3 Points for each $1 spent on purchases in the Digital Subscriptions, such as Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Audible, Peacock, Disney+, Roku, Spotify, Apple Music, Apple+. You may see the “3X” in marketing materials to refer to the 3 Points you earn for each $1 spent in the Digital Subscriptions category.
b. 2 Points for each $1 spent on purchases in Delivery and Ride Sharing, such as Uber, Lyft, Uber Eats, Doordash, Instacart, Grubhub and Caviar. You may see the “2X” in marketing materials to refer to the 2 Points you earn for each $1 spent in the Delivery and Ride Sharing category.
c. 1 Point for all other purchases including rent, groceries, gas fueling, purchases made in the travel, events & experiences, and luxury categories inside or outside of ONYX Concierge and purchases in the subscriptions. You may see the “1X” in marketing materials to refer to the 1 Point you earn for each $1 spent on all other purchases.
We are providing a limited time offer of 5 Reward Points for digital subscriptions and 2 Reward Points for dining, which is anticipated to end on March 31st, 2023. Notwithstanding the forgoing, the offer may be withdrawn or extended by Onyx at any time.
3. Rewards Categories: Merchants who accept the Card Network cards (Debit or Credit) are assigned a merchant code, which is determined by the merchant or its processor in accordance with VISA® procedures based on the kinds of products and services they primarily sell. We group similar merchant codes into categories for purposes of making rewards offers to you. Please note:
a. We make every effort to include all relevant merchant codes in our rewards categories. However, even though a merchant or some of the items that it sells may appear to fit within a rewards category, the merchant may not have a merchant code in that category. When this occurs, purchases with that merchant won’t qualify for rewards offers on purchases in that category.
b. Purchases submitted by you, an authorized user, or the merchant through third-party payment accounts, mobile or wireless Card readers, online or mobile digital wallets, or similar technology will not qualify in a rewards category if the technology is not set up to process the purchase in that rewards category.
