For the avoidance of doubt, for an Eligible Cardholder to be eligible for this Promotion, his/her Card account must be valid (i.e. must not be suspended, cancelled and/or terminated, in good standing, and conducted in a proper and satisfactory manner, as determined by Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) Limited (“Bank” or “we”) in its sole and absolute discretion (and the Bank shall not be obliged to disclose its reason)) from 1 November 2020 to 31 March 2021 (both dates inclusive).

Participation

  1. To participate in the Promotion, an Eligible Cardholder must have successfully registered for the Promotion. To register for the Promotion, an Eligible Cardholder must send a SMS which fulfils the criteria set out in Clause 6 below during the period of 1 November 2020 to 29 December 2020 (both dates inclusive) (“Registration Period”). An Eligible Cardholder will only be considered as having successfully registered for the Promotion, 2 calendar days from the time the Bank receives a SMS fulfilling clause 6 below.
  2. The Bank will not accept any registration for the Promotion that:
    1. is before and/or after the Registration Period; and/or
    2. is not in the prescribed format (as set out at Clause 6 below).

All such registrations will be considered by the Bank to be invalid and/or void, and the Bank’s determination shall be final and conclusive.

  1. For the purposes of registering for the Promotion, all SMSes must be composed in the following format:

“XMAS20”
(Example: XMAS20)

The composed SMS must be sent to 77222 (if the Eligible Cardholder is sending the SMS when he/she is in Singapore) or +65 8318 4584 (if the Eligible Cardholder is sending the SMS when he/she is not in Singapore) from the Eligible Cardholder’s mobile number that has been registered with the Bank (“Bank Registered Mobile Number”). All SMSes which are not in this prescribed format, sent to an incorrect number, or sent from a non-Bank Registered Mobile Number will not be accepted and will be considered by the Bank to be invalid and/or void, and the Bank’s determination shall be final and conclusive.

  1. An acknowledgement of successful registration for the Promotion will be sent to the Eligible Cardholder’s Bank Registered Mobile Number. Upon successful registration for the Promotion, all of the Eligible Cardholder’s validly existing Cards (i.e. not suspended, cancelled and/or terminated) which are in good standing, and conducted in a proper and satisfactory manner, as determined by the Bank, will be registered for the Promotion (such successfully registered card(s) hereinafter referred to as a “Registered Card” and the cardholder of such Registered Card, a “Registered Cardholder”).
  2. Registered Cardholders who have changed or updated their Bank Registered Mobile Number will have to re-register for the Promotion using their new Bank Registered Mobile Number. Failure to re-register will mean that the Eligible Cardholder will not be eligible for the Promotion.
  3. The speed and reliability of service of the Eligible Cardholder’s internet and/or mobile connection is dependent solely on his/her respective internet and/or mobile service providers. The Bank is not and will not be responsible or liable in any manner whatsoever for any delay or failure in the transmission or receipt of any SMS, or any failure to successfully register resulting from the same. Eligible Cardholders shall be solely responsible for all fees and charges imposed by their service providers in relation to the registration for the Promotion.
  4. By registering for and participating in the Promotion, the Eligible Cardholder consents to the use of his/her personal data for marketing purposes, including but not limited to the use of his/her telephone number and email address to contact him/her about products and promotions offered by the Bank from time to time via telephone, SMS or Electronic Direct Mail. Such consent will supersede any prior choices made by the Selected Cardholder. Such consent will also prevail even if the Selected Cardholder is registered or subsequently registers his/her contact information with the national Do Not Call Registry.

Promotion Mechanics

  1. To qualify, Registered Cardholders must charge a single retail transaction to a Registered Card that:
    1. is of an amount S$100 and above;
    2. has a transaction date falling within the Promotion Period;
    3. has been successfully posted to a Registered Card account during the Promotion Period; and
    4. is not an excluded transaction (as set out in Clause 24 below);

(each single retail transaction charged by a Registered Cardholder to a Registered Card that fulfils Clauses 11(a) to (d) above shall hereinafter referred to as a “Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transaction”).

  1. The first 150,000 Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions charged which are each of an amount between S$100 and S$499.99 (inclusive of both amounts) (a “Tier A Winning Transaction”) and the first 30,000 Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions which are each at least S$500 (a “Tier B Winning Transaction”) will each be randomly assigned a unique URL by an automated computerised system. Subject to Clause 14 below, a SMS containing this unique URL (“Christmas Carnival SMS”) will be sent to the Registered Cardholder’s Bank Registered Mobile Number when such Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transaction is either a Tier A Winning Transaction or Tier B Winning Transaction. For the avoidance of doubt, the Promotion is limited to the first 180,000 Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions, consisting specifically of the first 150,000 Tier A Winning Transactions and the first 30,000 Tier B Winning Transactions, and subject to Clause 14 below, Christmas Carnival SMSes will only be sent to the Registered Cardholders of the first 180,000 Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions.
  2. For the purposes of the Promotion, amounts charged to a Card before registration for the Promotion is successfully completed will not be considered as Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions. The table below illustrates when an Eligible Cardholder’s registration for the Promotion will be successfully completed depending on the respective date that his/her SMS (which fulfils clause 6 above) is received by the Bank, and whether retail transactions charged to his/her Card will be considered as Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions:
Date of SMS (which fulfils clause 6 above) is received by the Bank Date of successful registration for the Promotion Whether retail transactions will be considered as Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions
The Bank receives such a SMS before the start of the Registration Period i.e. before 1 November 2020 Not applicable. The SMS was received outside of the Registration Period Eligible Cardholder’s retail transactions charged to his/her Card(s) will not be considered as Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions
Eligible Cardholder sends such a SMS on 3 November 2020 (Tuesday) and the Bank receives this SMS on 3 November 2020. Registration will only take effect from 5 November 2020 (Thursday) (inclusive of this date).

For SMSes (which fulfil clause 6 above) the Bank receives between 1 November 2020 12:00am and 29 December 2020 11:59pm, there will be a 2 calendar day period for processing of the registration for the Promotion.

Registered Cardholder’s retail transactions charged to his/her Registered Card from 5 November 2020 12:00am onwards and which fulfil Clause 11 above will be considered as Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions.
The Bank receives such a SMS on or after 30 December 2020. Not applicable. There is a 2 calendar day period for processing of the registration for the Promotion. Eligible Cardholder’s retail transactions charged to his/her Card(s) will not be considered as Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions

 

  1. Each Registered Cardholder is eligible for 1 unique URL sent via 1 SMS for every Tier A Winning Transaction or Tier B Winning Transaction made except that a Registered Cardholder can only receive a maximum of 3 unique URLs per day. If the Registered Cardholder makes more than 3 Tier A Winning Transactions or Tier B Winning Transactions in a day, the Registered Cardholder will only receive the unique URLs for the first 3 of the Tier A Winning Transactions or Tier B Winning Transactions which occurred on the same day. For the avoidance of doubt, once the Bank has sent a Registered Cardholder 3 Christmas Carnival SMSes in a day, the Registered Cardholder will no longer be eligible to participate in the Promotion for any additional Christmas Carnival Qualifying Transactions occurring on the same day.
