When will you pay cashback to my account?

  • Your cashback will be awarded monthly to your credit card account - the day after your statement date. 
  • The cashback awarded will be for transactions on your last statement. Your cashback will lower your credit card balance but doesn’t count as your minimum payment - so you still need to make this payment as normal. 
  • If you close your account, any cashback you’ve earned before it’s closed will be paid to your credit card account. 
     

When was my cashback balance last updated?

  • We normally update the cashback awarded on the day after your statement date. We show the total amount of cashback awarded since your last anniversary date.
How we treat refunds and credits 
  • If you have any purchase amount refunded or credited to your account, we’ll take off the cashback it originally earned. We’ll do that using the current cashback rate you would be earning it at. This will reduce your total card purchase spend amount. That could mean you earn cashback at the lower rate. It could also create a negative cashback amount. That means you could still accrue cashback but wouldn’t start receiving it again until the negative amount is earned back and reaches zero. 

What is an anniversary date?

  • Your ‘anniversary date’ is the same date each year – it’s linked to the date your account was first opened. 
  • Each year on your anniversary date, your yearly spend and total cashback awarded will reset to zero. The cashback rate will also reset – you can see the rate on the Cashback and Benefits page online or in our mobile banking app.


How do I earn cashback?

  • You’ll earn cashback on card purchases when you use your credit card. This includes purchases made by any additional cardholder. You won’t earn it on anything else added to your account.
     

How will you keep me updated on my cashback awarded?

  • You’ll be able to view your cashback balance through your Haliax credit card statement, Online Banking and our mobile banking app. You’ll also receive your regular cashback balance update using push notifications, if you’ve set them up.
