Samsung also reserves the right to suspend or modify the Program, at its discretion, at any time with or without notice. Termination, modification or suspension may affect a Participant's ability to redeem accumulated Points. Participants will be able to redeem Points as set forth in Section E below.

 

2.    A Participant's continued participation in the Program constitutes his or her acceptance of any changes to these Rules.

 

D)     Earning Points

1.     Earning Points through Samsung Pay (Only applicable for limited number of countries and qualifying devices).
    a. Please check Qualifying device referring to https://www.samsung.com/my/samsung-pay/supported-devices/
    b. Samsung Pay is available in South Korea, United States, China, Spain, Australia, Singapore, Brazil, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Chinese Taiwan, Hong Kong and Vietnam. Samsung is working to expand Samsung Pay to additional regions.
    c. The following are additional requirements for the use of Samsung Pay:
    Download and install Samsung Pay application on a Qualifying Device subject to understanding and accepting its terms of use; and Register a qualifying Credit, Debit and/ or Prepaid Card with Samsung Pay ("Qualifying Card"). Not all cards are compatible.
d. Please check the Samsung Pay support page for list of supported cards referring to https://www.samsung.com/my/samsung-pay/banking-merchant-partners/ .

e. You will earn Points for each purchase using the Samsung Pay made with a Qualifying Device, using a Qualifying Card, herein a "Qualifying Transaction".  A Qualifying Transaction is complete once you authorize a payment and it is successfully completed and you receive a confirmation push notification. Please keep in mind the limitation that Participants may only earn Points for up to 50 Qualified Transactions through Samsung Pay each month.
f. Points Earned and Tier Status for each Qualified Transaction. The number of Points that You will earn for each Qualified Transaction will depend on Your current "Tier" status. Your Tier status is based on the cumulative number of Qualified Transactions You have made in the current calendar month as set forth in the table below.

Tier Number of Qualified Transactions
made during the calendar month
Points earned per Qualified Transaction
Bronze
1 - 5
10 Points
Silver
6 - 20
20 Points
Gold
21 - 50
40 Points

Participant can earn a Tier status at any time in the month by making the required number of cumulative Qualified Transactions. That Tier status will remain in effect as the minimum Tier Status for the following full calendar month only (through the last day of the month at 11:59 p.m. MYT). Participant must re-qualify for future calendar months.

 

For example: If You make ten (10) Qualified Transactions in Month 1, You will earn Points based on Your "Silver" status for the remaining days of Month 1 and will maintain “Silver” status for all of Month 2. If You only make three (3) Qualified Transactions in Month 2, Your status as of the beginning of Month 3 will now be Bronze.

 

2.     Earning Points through Other Samsung Applications/Programs: Samsung may, from time to time, offer Points through the use of other Samsung applications and/or programs on the Devices. Each application or program will provide details and terms regarding how to earn Points.

E)     Point Value, Forfeiture of Points, & Viewing Points

1.     No Cash Value or Transferability. Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a member to a vested right or interest and have no cash value. As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable or assignable for any reason, and are not transferable upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise by operation of law. The sale or transfer of Points is strictly prohibited. Points may not be sold on any secondary market, and any transfer of Points to a secondary market shall be deemed void.
