These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) set forth the terms pursuant to which Pomelo International, Inc. (“Pomelo”), a Delaware corporation with registered offices at 720 York St, Ste 116, San Francisco, CA 94110, will offer the Promotion (as defined below) to certain users of Pomelo’s cards and related services (“Services”). These Terms are in addition to any other agreement entered into between you and Pomelo (or Coastal Community Bank, member FDIC, or MasterCard) for use of the Services. If there is a conflict between these Terms and any other agreement entered into between you and Pomelo (or Coastal Community Bank, member FDIC, or Mastercard) for the Services, these Terms will govern with respect to the Promotion.
The Promotion begins at 12:00 am Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) on November 17, 2022 and ends when terminated by Pomelo (“Promotion Period”) in its sole discretion. Pomelo may suspend, modify, or terminate the Promotion at any time in its sole discretion; if it does suspend, modify or terminate the Promotion, Pomelo will let you know by posting a notice on the Services web/mobile interface and/or other forms of communication.
In order to be eligible to participate in the Promotion, you must:
be at least 18 years old (if located in the US) or at least 13 years old (if located in the Philippines)
be a legal resident of 1 of the 50 United States, including Washington, DC, or a legal resident of the Philippines
be a new Pomelo customer that becomes a registered and approved Pomelo member with only a single Pomelo account, on or after the start date of the Promotion, having successfully passed all the identification requirements required by Pomelo;
request the issuance of one or more Pomelo cards for a Philippines-based user(s) during the Promotion Period (each such card, a “New Pomelo Card”, the Pomelo cards are issued by Coastal Community Bank, member FDIC, pursuant to license by Mastercard International); and
agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not want to be bound by these Terms, do not participate in the Promotion.
not have been a participant or be a part of an Account Group (as defined below) that has been a participant in this or any other promotion by Pomelo.
If you meet all of the conditions above, you are a “Participant.” Each Participant is part of a single “Account Group” collectively comprised of an “Account Holder” and associated Non-responsible Authorized Users, as defined in the Cardholder Agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Promotion does not apply to Pomelo cards issued before the Promotion Period.
During the Promotion Period, Pomelo will offer 3% (“Cashback Rate”) of the settled transaction amount as a credit for Eligible Transactions (as defined below) (the “Promotion”).
“Eligible Transactions” must be all of the following:
Settled Philippine Peso-denominated transactions using a New Pomelo Card at Philippines-based businesses. The business can be a retail storefront located in the Philippines or an e-commerce storefront with operations based in the Philippines; and
The Promotion applies only to the first $500 spent per Account Group per month using your New Pomelo Card(s) within the first 12 months of account opening, after acceptance of these Terms.
Each Eligible Transaction will appear on Participant’s card statement based on the prevailing Mastercard conversion rates, and Pomelo will automatically apply a credit to the card statement in the US dollar amount equal to the Cashback Rate multiplied by the Eligible Transaction amount. In the event that an Eligible Transaction is reversed, related Promotion credits will also be reversed.
If Pomelo modifies the Promotional Rate at any time during the Promotion Period pursuant to the section entitled “Promotion Period” above, Pomelo will honor the Promotional Rate set forth herein for Eligible Transactions made up until the modification date.

Pomelo may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and any permitted assigns.
