GE CAPITAL RETAIL BANK

EBAY MASTERCARD® REWARDS LOYALTY PROGRAM

These are the terms and conditions for the eBay MasterCard Loyalty Program. By participating in the eBay MasterCard Loyalty Program, you hereby agree to be bound by these terms.

  1. DEFINITIONS. As used herein, the following terms will have the following meanings:

    "Account" means the eBay MasterCard® account.
    "Card" means the eBay MasterCard.
    "Cardholder" means the person to whom the Card was issued.
    "Card Year" means the 12 month period after the Cardholder is enrolled in the Program and each 12 month period thereafter.
    "Reward Point" means the point you earn for each different purchase. The Reward Point accumulation will vary based on the Merchant category.
    "PayPal Cash" means the eBay MasterCard cash reward that is placed directly into your PayPal account.
    "Bank" means GE Capital Retail Bank.
    "Program" means the eBay MasterCard® Loyalty Program.
    "Purchase" means a purchase of merchandise or services for personal, family or household use using the Account. Purchase does not include any other type of Account transaction, including cash advances, convenience checks or balance transfers. Purchases made for other than personal, family or household use are not eligible to accrue Reward Points.

  2. ELIGIBILITY. In order to receive the benefits of the Program, you must do the following two things as set forth in these Program terms:
    (i) Make Purchases with your Card, accumulating the necessary level of Reward Points; and
    (ii) Redeem the Reward Points accumulated.

    Unless and until you complete the above steps, no right, title or interest in the Reward Points has been earned by you. The Program is provided by Bank and is restricted to individuals who maintain an eBay MasterCard® account. If your right to use the Account is suspended for any reason or your Account is terminated for any reason, your participation in the Program will be terminated. Bank will not compensate you for unredeemed Reward Points in the event your Program participation is suspended or terminated.

  3. REWARD POINTS ACCUMULATION. Cardholders will accumulate Reward Points based on net Purchases on the Cardholder's Account. Returns and other purchase credits and adjustments will result in a debit to your Reward Points balance. The maximum amount of Reward Points Cardholders can accumulate in a Card Year is 50,000. Reward Points will accumulate as follows:

    • You will accumulate 3 Rewards Points for every dollar in net Purchases at a merchant's location that have merchant category codes selected by Bank that are customarily used for gas stations or restaurants (a "Qualifying Merchant Category Code"). A merchant category code is a four digit classification code that is assigned to a merchant by the merchant's payment card network or merchant processor based on the predominant business activity of the merchant. A Purchase made within the department or section of a larger merchant that is not a stand–alone gas station or restaurant will not have a Qualifying Merchant Category Code. Bank does not assign, and does not have any responsibility for the assignment of, merchant category codes and does not evaluate whether or not a Qualifying Merchant Category Code should be assigned to a particular merchant. Bank reserves the right to determine which merchant category codes are Qualifying Merchant Category Codes. Purchases at eBay or any PayPal merchants made through your PayPal account do not qualify for 3 Rewards Points.

    • You will accumulate 2 Rewards Points for every dollar of net Purchases when making a Purchase at eBay or any PayPal merchant through your PayPal account. You must be signed into your PayPal account.

    • You will accumulate 1 Rewards Point for every other dollar of net Purchases.

    The amount of Reward Points accumulated is calculated each day. For the purpose of calculating accumulated Reward Points, the daily purchase total is rounded down to the previous whole dollar. A Cardholder is not eligible to accumulate Reward Points if any minimum payment on the Cardholder's Account is not paid when due. After any past due amounts on the Cardholder's Account are paid, the Cardholder will once again be eligible to accumulate Reward Points. Reward Points are not available for redemption and will not be credited to you until the next billing period for your Account after the Purchase is made. In some circumstances we may delay crediting Reward Points to your Program account and/or making Reward Points available for redemption.

  4. LOSS OF REWARD POINTS. A Cardholder will forfeit all accrued Reward Points in any of the following circumstances: (i) if two or more consecutive minimum payments on the Cardholder's Account are not paid when due; (ii) if the Cardholder's Account is closed for any reason (other than as a result of a lost or stolen card, in which case all accrued Reward Points will be applied to the replacement card); (iii) if the Cardholder's PayPal Account is closed; or (iv) if Cardholder does not make a Purchase for 12 consecutive months. In addition, accrued Reward Points that are not redeemed will be forfeited 24 months (2 years) after they were first accrued.

  5. REDEMPTION OF REWARD POINTS. Only the primary Cardholder may redeem Reward Points. Multiple participants may not combine Reward Points for redemption purposes. Reward Points do not constitute property of the Cardholder. Except as expressly permitted by Bank in writing, Reward Points and awards are not transferable or assignable under any circumstances, including (i) upon death, (ii) as part of a domestic relations matter, or (iii) otherwise by operation of law.
