My Rewards (“Solution”) is a Visa's new loyalty platform available to the holder of a Visa Card (“you” or the “Cardholder”) issued by a Visa member financial institution in the Latin America and Caribbean region, as defined by Visa International Service Association and its affiliates (“Visa”) and made available to the Cardholder by your Issuer (“Issuer”). Under the My Rewards, you will earn points every time you make a purchase according to the parameters established by your Issuer with an eligible Visa Card that has been enrolled in the My Rewards. You can use these points to obtain merchandise, hotel stays, car rentals, cruises and/or air travel tickets rewards (referred to generally as “Rewards”). By participating in the My Rewards, you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions. In addition to these terms and conditions, your card agreement (the “Card Agreement”) with your Issuer relating to your use of your Visa Card shall also continue to govern your use of your Visa Card and the My Rewards. In the event of a conflict between the Card Agreement and these terms and conditions, these Terms & Conditions shall govern in any matter relating to the My Rewards.Changes to the My Rewards
We (“Issuer” and “Visa”) may modify, restrict or change the My Rewards at any time. These changes may include (but are not limited to) changing the number of Reward Points you earn for a particular type of activity or the number of Reward Points you need to reach a particular Reward tier or to redeem a particular Reward; omitting or adding Reward levels or categories; changing the selection of Rewards; imposing, increasing or eliminating Reward Points caps or My Rewards fees; or changing the conditions under which Reward Points expire or are forfeited. We will notify you of material changes to the My Rewards Terms & Conditions and, unless you decide to terminate your My Rewards participation, you will be bound by the revised terms and conditions. Visa reserves the right to cancel the My Rewards at any time, and your Issuer reserves the right to cancel its participation in the My Rewards at any time. This may result in the cancellation of any existing Reward Point balance for which neither Visa or the Issuer shall be liable.
Visa reserves the right to modify or cancel any Reward, and to modify the My Rewards Terms & Conditions at any time. The participation of affiliated merchants in the My Rewards (for example: hotels, car rental companies, airlines and others) is subject to change at any time, with or without notice. Published Reward Point levels are also subject to change due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates, customs charges, taxes, charges and fees imposed by governments, and fuel surcharges.Eligibility
Visa Cards issued by Issuers licensed by Visa to operate in a territory in the Latin America and Caribbean region and in good standing may be eligible to participate in the My Rewards (a “Visa Card”). We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether a particular Visa Card or Cardholder is eligible to participate in the My Rewards.Enrollment and Fees
To participate in the My Rewards, your Issuer must first enroll you and establish a My Rewards account (“My Rewards Account”).
Once you have enrolled successfully, your Issuer will provide you a Personal ID that is required to access the My Rewards via http://visacardholderapp.allegrarewards.com/ (the “Website”) chat or video conference call. It is your responsibility to keep your user and password safe and known only to you and to restrict access to any mobile phone number and/or e-mail address registered with the My Rewards. You are solely responsible for all redemption activity in your My Rewards Account.
Visa will not charge you any fees to enroll or participate in the My Rewards. Any fees for participation in the My Rewards, if applicable, would be established by your Issuer. These terms could include how and when the fee is charged; whether the fee covers a different period; refund policy if participation is cancelled; notice of subsequent period billing; fee for negative point balance, etc.
Please be aware that if you elect to participate in any My Rewards services offered via a mobile device, your wireless provider’s message and data rates may apply and you are responsible to your wireless provider for any such charges.Qualifying Purchases
Only Qualifying Purchases with the Visa Card enrolled in the My Rewards can earn points. A “Qualifying Purchase” is any type of purchase transaction, whether it is performed at a physical merchant location, online or internet purchases, phone or mail order purchases, bill payments, contactless purchases, or any other type of purchase transaction. Payments of existing card balances, balance transfers, cash advances, cash withdrawals of any kind, card fees, currency conversion fees, transaction fees, insurance fees, returned items for which a credit was issued, purchases that for any reason are in violation of the law or the Card Agreement, unauthorized charges and other types of fees are not Qualifying Purchases. In addition to these, your Issuer may provide additional categories of “Qualifying Purchases”; please check the terms and conditions provided to you by your Issuer. Visa, at its exclusive discretion, may modify the list of Qualifying Purchases from time to time.Reward Points
The My Rewards is based on a points system that allows you to earn one point for each dollar or eligible equivalent amount in local currency charged to your Visa Card for Qualifying Purchases (each a “Reward Point”), provided your Visa Card account is current. The Issuer which issued the Visa Card will determine, at its exclusive discretion, whether or not your Visa Card account is current to earn Reward Points.
Reward Points are not your property. Reward Points are value only to redeem individual Rewards by the Cardholder. Reward Points have no cash or other value, except to redeem Rewards by the Cardholder on the My Rewards Account. You may not sell Reward Points, sell your My Rewards Account or transfer your My Rewards Account. If your Issuer allows it, you may transfer Reward Points and/or purchase Reward Points through charges to the Visa Card associated with the My Rewards Account. If the Visa Card associated with your My Rewards Account is a commercial or business product issued to you in your capacity as an employee or contractor, you, and not your company, will receive the Reward Points and be eligible to redeem them for Rewards.
Qualifying Purchase amounts, including tax, will be rounded to the nearest whole dollar amount to determine the number of Reward Points to be posted to your My Rewards Account. Reward Points for Qualifying Purchases posted during a calendar month shall be eligible for immediate redemption. Any returns, credits, or chargebacks earn “negative” Reward Points; such “negative” Reward Points will reduce the total Reward Points posted to the My Rewards Account. Occasionally, the Issuer may authorize an adjustment to your Rewards Point balance. These adjustments can be positive or negative.
If Visa or your Issuer improperly deny or fail to credit Reward Points duly earned by you for Qualifying Purchases or any other My Rewards Benefit, your exclusive remedy will be the issuance of the improperly denied Reward Points, Reward or benefit if available, or such other alternative comparable benefit as determined by Visa or the Issuer. In no event will Visa or the Issuer be liable to any My Rewards participant or anyone claiming through a My Rewards participant for any direct, indirect or consequential damages, or lost revenue or profits, arising out of Visa’s or the Issuer’s acts or omissions in connection with the My Rewards. If more than one card was issued in the card account (additional cards), your Issuer will determine the My Rewards Account or My Rewards Accounts in which the Reward Points will accumulate. If you have more than one Visa account, each account will earn Reward Points individually.Redemption
You, or a person you’ve duly authorized, may redeem Reward Points at any time. Only you or a person you’ve authorized may access My Rewards Account information.
You can view your My Rewards Account Reward Point balance and online redemption activity at any time online at the Website (http://visacardholderapp.allegrarewards.com/). You can inquire about your Reward Point balance, points earned and online and offline redemption activity by calling our support team through the My Rewards mobile application.
Reward Points are redeemed on a “first-in, first-out” basis such that the first Reward Points earned will be the first Reward Points redeemed over the life of your My Rewards Account. Once a redemption order is placed, your My Rewards Account will be reduced by the number of Reward Points used to acquire the Reward. If the Reward order is cancelled or the Reward item becomes unavailable (and there is no substitute Reward available), the Reward Points will be reinstated and you will be notified of the cancelled Reward order.Rewards
(this section is only applicable to Rewards managed by Visa; for Issuer Rewards, please see below)
All Rewards are subject to availability and have no cash value. For more availability, please provide at least 5 days advance notice for airline, hotel and car rental reservations and 15 days advance notice for cruise or travel package reservations. Rewards are void where prohibited by applicable law. Each Reward will be subject to terms and conditions specific to the Reward that will be provided to you in conjunction with the Reward. These terms and conditions may address such matters as the expiration date of the Reward; anticipated shipping time for the Reward; the purchase or other requirements to obtain or use the Reward; any warranties for the Reward; or any other limitations or restrictions on obtaining, retaining or using the Reward. Neither your Issuer nor Visa is liable to you if a Reward expires prior to your use of the Reward. An expired Reward will no longer be available for use or redemption. You are solely responsible for reviewing and understanding the terms and conditions applicable to the Reward.
Once a Reward is issued, redemption is considered final; no changes will be accepted and Reward Points are not reimbursable. Once redeemed, Rewards may not be replaced, reimbursed or exchanged for cash, credit or other Rewards under any circumstances. The Issuer, Visa, and participating merchants shall not be responsible for replacing lost, stolen or damaged Rewards.
All Reward reservations are subject to availability and must be booked through the Mobile application or via the Website’s online redemption system (http://visacardholderapp.allegrarewards.com/). No other reservations will be accepted. You must accept or reject any quotation provided by the My Rewards administrator by the response date and time indicated on the quotation or the Website’s online redemption tool, otherwise the quotation, along with any reservation already made, will be cancelled, and the related Reward forfeited. If you choose to make arrangements additional to those provided by the Reward, you are exclusively responsible for those arrangements, including but not limited to any costs associated with the additional arrangements or impact those arrangements have on the Reward and/or your ability to exercise the Reward. If a merchant imposes a charge for cancellation or changes, you will pay said charges and may not do so using Reward Points.
You are solely responsible for obtaining the proper documentation, visas, immigration documents, or any type of service to fill out and submit forms required by the authorities in each country. You are solely responsible for obtaining and maintaining in your possession valid proof of citizenship or naturalization, immunization certificates and/or visas required to travel or enter another country.
Travel-related Rewards will be treated as if purchased with the Visa Card associated with your My Rewards Account so that benefits (including but not limited to travel accident or loss of vehicle insurance, if applicable) available to you for purchases with your Visa Card will apply to Rewards as long as all taxes, charges and/or fees charged to you in connection with your redemption and/or utilization of the Reward are paid for in full with your Visa Card. You are solely responsible for reading and understanding the terms and conditions applicable to those benefits to maintain your eligibility in connection with the Reward. For any questions regarding the benefits available to you, please call the customer service telephone number indicated on the reverse of your Visa Card.
IMPORTANT: REWARDS UNAVAILABLE FOR TRAVEL OR ANY OTHER SERVICE OR BENEFIT RELATED TO CUBA, IRAN, SYRIA OR SUDAN. Please be advised that Rewards are not available under any circumstances for travel, hotel, car rental or any other type of benefit or service related to Cuba, Iran, Syria and Sudan. U.S. laws prohibit Visa from providing or facilitating any benefits or services related to Cuba, Iran, Syria or Sudan, including but not limited to the redemption of Rewards for benefits or services related to those countries. Please be aware of these limitations prior to making travel arrangements or using your Visa Card, and any benefits restrictions, that may apply in those countries. Exceptions to this prohibition are not permitted.Issuer Rewards
Visa provides your Issuer the alternative to make offers managed by the Issuer available for redemption through the Website with your Reward Points (the “Issuer Rewards”). Issuer Rewards will be clearly marked on the Website and are subject to the terms and conditions established by your Issuer. Your Issuer is solely responsible for all aspects of the Issuer Rewards, including but not limited to the content of the Issuer Rewards displayed on the Website, the Issuer Rewards terms and conditions, redeeming the Issuer Rewards, and any customer service associated with the Issuer Rewards. Visa bears no liability for the offer, redemption or usage of Issuer Rewards. Please contact your Issuer for further information regarding redeeming Issuer Rewards.Forfeiture of Reward Points
Your positive Reward Point balance will be forfeited if your Visa Card account is closed by you or by your Issuer, if your My Rewards Account is terminated by your Issuer (we will determine in our sole discretion what is a closed card account or a terminated My Rewards Account for this purpose) or upon death. You may not be provided with notice of expiration or forfeiture of Reward Points. Any fraud or abuse relating to the accumulation of Reward Points or redemption of Rewards will result in the annulment of all Reward Points earned under the My Rewards, as well as in the immediate cancellation of the My Rewards Account.Expiration of Reward Points
When the Issuer elects to allow Reward Points to expire in your My Rewards Account, the Reward Points will expire on December 31 of the expiration year calculated after the date the Reward Points were obtained through a Qualifying Purchase. The Issuer will decide the expiration years for the Reward Points.
You are not entitled to compensation from the Issuer, from Visa or from any other entity when your Reward Points expire or if they are forfeited for any reason.Rewards Delivery
There may be shipping or handling fee for delivery of the Rewards. Rewards generally will be sent within two to six weeks of placing your Rewards order. Shipping times may vary. Check the terms and conditions of the particular Reward for details. You are solely responsible for reviewing and understanding the terms and conditions applicable to the delivery of the Reward.
Upon requesting delivery of Rewards to an e-mail or physical address, the Cardholder accepts full responsibility for delivery of said Rewards. Once the delivery request is made by the Cardholder to an e-mail address this e-mail address cannot be changed until after the redemption process is complete. If the e- mail address is changed then the Cardholder needs to notify the Redemption Center within 24 hours.Communication with My Rewards Participants

Through the handy application, SELLERS offer goods and services. Such offerings may be accepted by electronic means, using the tools the application provides for this purpose. Any acceptance of an offer is subject to the suspensive condition that the MERCHANT validates the transaction.
