Total of spend will be determined based on transactions posted from the first day of the billing cycle to the end of day of one day prior to the next billing cycle. First Cash Back earnings will be separately calculated for domestic spend and International spend on the amount of eligible retail purchases and rounded down to the nearest Dirham. Only incremental spend in the respective tier will earn Cashback as per the rate mentioned in the specific tier. Cashback earnings will be capped at AED 1,000 per cycle.
Total Spend of AED 10,000 (AED 5000 Domestic + AED 5000 International)
Cash Back Earned for Domestic Spend= (2,999 X 0.50%) + (2001 X 1%) = AED 35.00
Cash Back Earned for International Spend= (2,999 X 1%) + (2001 X 1.5%) = AED 60.00
