Tier points cannot be used to redeem rewards. Once a member earns a Tier point, the point remains in the member’s account indefinitely and does not reduce whenever the member redeems rewards vouchers through the program. Tier points have no expiry date.
- Redemption Points: Points used for the purpose of redemption of rewards only. Number of redemption points increase with every eligible spending and decreases with redemptions based on a set scale set in this terms and conditions of this agreement and each rewards voucher. Redemption points have no expiry date
4.2 Earning Points
- One tier point and one redemption point is credited for every Thai baht spent in eligible spending
- All points earned are credited between 2-7 business days after member checks out of an eligible stay.
- Points do not constitute a means of payment and have no monetary value. No money shall be provided for lost or unused Points.
- No Points will be awarded for "no show" situations when a Member has made a reservation guaranteed with a credit card but then does not check in to the hotel -- irrespective of whether or not the Member's credit card is charged for any portion of the reserved stay per the hotel's "no show" policy.
- Points are calculated on the basis of the total invoice for eligible spending, excluding tax and service charge. This invoice must be paid while the Member is at the hotel, that is, payment must be accepted and cleared. As a result, if a Member stops payment of a check, issues check with insufficient funds, or challenges a payment by bank card, he/she will not receive any Points for the stay in question.
- Invoices paid in local currency outside the Thailand are converted into Thai Baht and used to calculate number of points. The exchange rate applied by the hotel at the time of Check-out is taken from the Hotel’s own money exchange service.
- Points may only be credited as whole numbers. If the applied conversion produces a number with decimal figures: the number of Points credited is rounded down to the nearest whole number if the decimal is less than 0.5; the number of Points credited is rounded up to the nearest whole number if the decimal is greater than 0.5.
