Digital Ad Spend Cash Rewards Terms and Conditions

Important Information about the Digital Ad Spend Cash Rewards Program.

These Digital Ad Spend Cash Rewards Terms and Conditions ( “Terms”) govern Company’s (“Company” or “you” or “your”) participation in the Digital Ad Spend Cash Rewards Program (“Rewards Program”).  These Terms form a part of the dash.fi Platform Agreement ( “General Terms”). The Rewards Program is provided by dash.fi (“dash.fi” or “us” or "we") and is offered in our sole discretion.

Calculation of Cash Rewards

Generally.  Cash Rewards (as defined herein) are calculated on Qualifying Purchases (as defined herein) made using your Card less (i) any reductions in interchange payable by MasterCard®, (ii) any MasterCard or Bank fees applicable to any Qualifying Purchase, and (iii) any other costs or expenses associated with any Qualifying Purchase (“Network Fees”), and rounded to the nearest cent in accordance with these Terms.

As of the date of these Terms:

  • The “Sign-Up Bonus Cash Percentage” for the first twelve (12) months of the Term is:
    • Up to 3% of the Company’s Qualifying Purchases on the Standard Interchange Rate, less Network Fees, and
    • Up to 2.5% of the Company’s Qualifying Purchases on the Discounted Interchange Rate, less Network Fees.
  • The “Earned Cash Percentage”:
    • For a Company whose Account and Card are provided by Patriot Bank, N.A., the Earned Cash Percentage is 1.5% of the Company’s Qualifying Purchases on the Standard Interchange Rate (as defined herein), less Network Fees, and up to 1.25% on Qualifying Purchases on the Discounted Interchange Rate (as defined herein), less Network Fees.

Earned Cash Percentage and Sign-Up Bonus Cash Percentage (collectively, “Cash Percentages”).

Adjustments or Deductions to the Cash Percentages.

  1. We work with bank partners to optimize the interchange fee on digital advertising purchases. We reserve the right to change the Earned Cash Percentage and the Sign-Up Bonus Cash Percentage in our sole discretion in the event that the gross interchange rate settles lower than the Standard Interchange Rate with respect to any MCC code underlying any Qualifying Purchase. In such an event, we will provide the Company Cash Rewards at the Discounted Interchange Rate. The impact of which may cause the Earned Cash Percentage and the Sign-Up Bonus Cash Percentage to be less than those cited above and may thereby reduce the Cash Rewards earned on any Qualifying Purchase.

    In other words, your Cash Rewards may be pro-rated based on the spread between the rate at which your transaction settles and the assumed standard Data Rate 1 on which your Cash Rewards are based. For example:

    If your Cash Rewards rate is 1.5% and your transaction settles at 10bps below the Standard Data Rate 1, then your net Cash Rewards rate would be 1.4%
  2. The Pass-Through Fees referenced in the Fees section below.

Types of Cash Rewards

  • “Earned Cash Rewards”

    • The Bonus Cash Rewards are contingent upon meeting the applicable requirements for a particular Bonus Cash Award (e.g., the Secured Card Program).
  • “Restricted Rewards”
    • We may offer certain rewards from time to time that are only available to a subset of dash.fi customers or in limited quantities. For example, a Restricted Reward may provide certain Users satisfying specific requirements the option to earn Cash Rewards at a higher rate or redeem Sign-Up Bonus Cash Rewards or Bonus Cash Rewards early. Redemption of a Restricted Reward will depend on the conditions that must be satisfied prior to their exhaustion or expiration. You are not guaranteed access to Restricted Rewards that are limited in number or conditioned on satisfying specific requirements.
