|Cap on KrisFlyer miles earning
- Transactions not eligible for KrisFlyer miles earning include, but are not limited to, domestic cash advance, quasi-cash, gaming, gambling, online trading and other related transactions, InstaCash, Balance Transfer and Convert-to-Installment transactions, refunded, disputed, unauthorized or fraudulent transactions, annual membership fees and other fees and charges. The Bank reserves the right to exclude the eligibility of transactions for KrisFlyer miles earning.
- KrisFlyer miles are earned once eligible transactions are posted to the Card Account, not on the transaction dates. Transactions made by the Supplementary Cardholder shall form part of the Principal Cardholderâ€™s transactions and shall qualify for KrisFlyer miles earning under the Programme.
- KrisFlyer miles shall be computed on a per eligible transaction basis, rounded down to the nearest mile, excluding decimal values. For purposes of this computation, each transaction must have a minimum value of Php45 for Platinum Cards and Php36 for World Cards. The computation of miles will be based on increments of Php45 and Php36 for Platinum and World Cards, respectively. Please see below for a representative table on how KrisFlyer miles are computed using a Platinum Card:
|Transaction 1: Local spend
||= Php700/Php45 = 15 miles
|Transaction 2: Hotel booking
||= Php12,000/Php45 = 266 miles
|Transaction 3: Local cash advance
||= 0 miles
|Transaction 4: Merchant installment
||Php9,000, payable in 3 months
||= Php9,000/3 mos. = Php3,000/ Php45 = 67 miles each month that the monthly amortization is posted
|Total miles earned for the month
- KrisFlyer miles earned for the current month shall be accrued to the Cardholderâ€™s account on the next cycle and shall be reflected on the next cycleâ€™s Statement of Account (SOA). Unless the Bank hears from the Cardholder within thirty (30) days upon delivery of his/her monthly SOA to his/her billing address and/or e-mail address, the KrisFlyer miles earned indicated in the SOA shall be considered correct and final.
- KrisFlyer miles earned per statement shall be automatically redeemed ("auto-redeemed") and posted to Cardholderâ€™s KrisFlyer Account after two (2) weeks. If the Cardholder opts to cancel his/her Card Account prior to the scheduled auto-redemption of earned miles, the unredeemed miles will be forfeited in favour of the Bank.
- Once credited to the Cardholder's KrisFlyer Account, the KrisFlyer miles will have a three-year validity from the time of crediting. Cardholders may refer to their KrisFlyer statement of account for details on their KrisFlyer miles validity.
- A KrisFlyer Account which has not recorded any activity for a consecutive period of thirty-nine (39) months from the date of the last recorded activity will be closed without prior notice. A KrisFlyer Account that has been inactive for a consecutive period of eighteen (18) months from the date of commencement of membership will also be closed. In cases where the KrisFlyer Account is closed, the Bank shall assign a new KrisFlyer Account number where earned KrisFlyer miles shall be credited. Cardholders may refer to the KrisFlyer Membership Terms and Conditions to know more about activities in their KrisFlyer Account.
- Should Cardholder have two (2) existing KrisFlyer Accounts, s/he should call KrisFlyer Customer Service to request for consolidation of his/her KrisFlyer Accounts. Cardholder should advise the Bank of the surviving KrisFlyer Account number where his/her earned KrisFlyer miles should be credited to.
- Earned KrisFlyer miles shall not be auto-redeemed if:
- The Card is blocked or for replacement
- The Cardholder's KrisFlyer Account has expired or has been cancelled
- The Cardholder's Account is not in good standing
- The Bank shall reverse auto-redeemed KrisFlyer miles related to any disputed/charged back transaction resolved in favor of the Cardholder. The Bank shall be entitled to reverse the corresponding KrisFlyer miles auto-redeemed even if such reversal causes the Card Account to have a negative number of outstanding KrisFlyer miles.
- Manual redemption of earned KrisFlyer miles shall not be allowed.
- KrisFlyer miles are not transferable to any other EastWest Credit Card Account even if the other account is under the same name.
- Once a Cardholderâ€™s account becomes thirty (30) days past due, Cardholderâ€™s earned KrisFlyer miles shall not be auto-redeemed. These miles will be redeemed by the Bank on the next Cycle Month after the Cardholder updates payment on his/her Card Account, provided that said account has not reached sixty (60) days past due.
- The Bank reserves the right to temporarily or permanently disqualify any Cardholder from the Programme and forfeit any KrisFlyer miles earned in favor of the Bank, if:
- The Cardholder's account or other EastWest Credit Card Account is sixty (60) days past due.
- The Card is cancelled.
- The Card is converted to another non-EastWest Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Mastercard. Earned KrisFlyer miles shall not be converted to points, cash rebates or other forms of compensation.
- The Card account is declared fraudulent or counterfeit.
- The Cardholder has violated any of the Terms and/or any of the Terms and Conditions Governing the Issuance and Use of EastWest Credit Cards.
- In cases where a Cardholder upgrades from an EastWest Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Platinum Mastercard to an EastWest Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer World Mastercard, all outstanding KrisFlyer miles at the time of upgrade will be redeemed. Earned KrisFlyer miles shall not be transferred from the Platinum to the World Card.

- The Bank shall, at its sole discretion, have the right to vary, modify or amend the conditions of the KrisFlyer Programme such as, but not limited to, the manner of calculation of the earned KrisFlyer miles, the spend-to-miles conversion, the inclusion and exclusion of merchant categories for miles earning and the eligibility of transactions for the KrisFlyer Programme as stipulated in the Cardâ€™s communication materials. Further, such modifications or amendments shall be effective on such date or dates as determined by the Bank.
