Bank of China allows you to earn rewards as you spend on its credit cards. You can redeem your rewards for movie tickets, shopping or dining vouchers, etc. Let’s take a look at how the bank’s reward programme works and how they benefit you.
You will be rewarded with 1 BOC Bonus Point for every S$1 spent on your BOC principal card or supplementary card. This is the base earnings. Each card may have different earning rates for the points, depending on spending categories. You can view your Bonus Points in the account statement which is issued every month.
If you have more than one card, the points accumulated on all such card accounts will be combined and aggregated by BOC. You can use the combined points to redeem for gifts and vouchers under the Rewards Programme.
BOC Bonus Points will always have expiry date associated with it, and you are supposed to utilise the points within the validity period. Otherwise, the points will automatically get forfeited/cancelled. BOC can deduct/revoke/recompute your BOC Bonus Points if you do not pay your card bill before the specified due date or if your card was terminated by BOC for any reason.
You can use the BOC Bonus Points for the following purposes:
