Any failure to follow Program Rules, any abuse of Program privileges, any conduct detrimental to the interests of Agoda, or any misrepresentation of any information furnished to Agoda or its affiliates by any member, or anyone else acting on the member's behalf, may result in the termination of his or her membership, the cancellation of accrued points, rewards or benefits, or both.

Agoda shall attempt to advise active members of various matters of interest through such means as may be appropriate, such as account summaries, newsletters and its website, but Agoda shall have no liability for any failure to do so.
5. The accumulation of Rewards Points and the redemption of those points are subject to specific Program Rules enacted by Agoda.

Agoda's failure to enforce any of these terms and conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that, or any other, provision.

Prohibition of Sale or Barter
14. The sale or barter of any such Rewards Points, awards or benefits other than by Agoda is expressly prohibited.

The use of hotel reservations that have been acquired by purchase, barter, or other conduct in violation of Program Rules may result in the cancellation of the reservations, denial of entry to the hotel with respect to the guest name the reservation is held under, and, at the discretion of Agoda, completion of the hotel stay only upon payment of an applicable rate.
15. Any member who fails at any time to engage in account activity for a period of twenty-four (24) consecutive months is subject to termination of his or her membership and forfeiture of all accrued Rewards Points.
16. "Account activity," for purposes of these Rules, shall be deemed to occur when a member accrues Rewards Points in his or her account in any manner set forth in these Rules, or as otherwise approved by Agoda, or when the member redeems any Agoda Rewards or partner award by the use of Rewards Points in the member's account.
Rewards Points Accrual
17. Only members of Agoda Rewards are eligible to accrue Rewards Points in the Program by availing themselves of the means of accrual recognized under the Program. A member may not accrue Rewards Points for the utilization of services, whether hotel reservations or otherwise, by any other person, animal, object, or entity.
18. Currently, Rewards Points can be accrued by making a hotel reservation through agoda.com or any other website belonging to the Agoda Travel Network, by using an authorized credit card to pay for the reservation or purchase goods or services for Rewards Points may be accrued. Agoda expressly reserves the right to establish additional means of accruing Rewards Points, to delete any or all of the means currently recognized, or to exclude specific types of transactions from the accumulation of Rewards Points.
19. Rewards Points can be accrued only for hotel stays actually taken or performed by the member after the member's official enrollment date, and can be applied only to the member's account. Rewards Points accrued for a completed hotel reservation will be credited to the member's account 30 days after the departure date from the hotel. Rewards Points will be credited only for hotel reservations actually made by the member. Rewards Points will not be awarded for hotel cancellations.
20. Rewards Points may be accrued only for paid and completed hotel reservations on participating hotel properties. The amount of Rewards Points accrued shall be determined by the cash value paid by the member. The cash value is the amount charged to the member's credit card, adjusted for any refunds, charge backs, adjustments or unverifiable activity.
Premier Members shall accrue Rewards Points at the rate of 20 points for every dollar charged to their credit card.
Elite75 Members shall accrue Rewards Points at the rate of 31.25 points for every dollar charged to their credit card.
21. If Agoda or any Agoda Rewards partner improperly denies a member an accrual or benefit, liability will be limited to the equivalent of that accrual or benefit.
22. Agoda Rewards Points will be credited only for qualifying published rates, and not for hotels where Agoda is contracted on a commission only basis, free accommodation, rentals or tickets, industry discounts, group rates or special promotional rates. Agoda Rewards Points will not be applied to any credit card charges made directly with the hotel.
23. Only the person contracting for hotel reservations receives Rewards Points credit for those services.
24. Agoda reserves the right to make bonus points and promotional offers selectively available to certain members at any time, based on reservation history and booking activity, geographic locations, program participation, or other factors determined at Agoda's sole discretion.
25 . Agoda will, in most cases, credit its members' accounts with accrued Rewards Points. However, each member shall have the responsibility to ensure that his or her Rewards Points are properly credited. Where a member contends that Rewards Points have been earned but not credited, or in cases where Agoda deems verification is required, Agoda reserves the right to require proof of accrual from the member, including but not limited to copies of receipts or similar documentation verifying any transaction claimed to have been performed. Any claims for Rewards Points by the member and proof of accrual must be received by Agoda within twelve months after the date such Rewards Points were claimed to be earned.
Rewards Points Accrual
26. Rewards points accrued in a member's account shall be maintained in the account until they are redeemed for an award or until they expire, whichever occurs first.
27. Rewards points earned in one calendar year remain valid until December 31 of the next calendar year thereafter. Expiring points in each calendar year must be redeemed for an award by December 31. Expiring points that are not redeemed by December 31 are void and deleted from accounts. Accounts in which Rewards Point accrual ceases for a full 2-year period are designated as dormant and Agoda reserves the right to close the account after the expiration of any remaining Rewards Points.
In cases where Rewards Points are, for any reason, removed from an account, as for the redemption of awards, and later returned, the return of the Rewards Points to the account shall not count as account activity
28. The awards available to be redeemed and the amount of Rewards Points necessary to redeem each award will be set by Agoda and published to the members. Agoda shall establish the process for award redemption, but redemption shall basically mean the exchange of Rewards Points in a member's account for a specified award.
29. Rewards Points earned in two or more different accounts may not be combined to redeem any award.
30. Agoda Rewards hotel reservations will be subject to the tariff, contract and accommodation policies of the property at which members are scheduled to stay.
31. The award structure is subject to modification, cancellation or limitation at Agoda's discretion, with or without notice. The amount of Rewards Points required to redeem any award may be substantially increased, any award may be withdrawn, and restrictions on any award or its redemption may be imposed at any time. The accumulation of Rewards Points does not entitle Program members to any vested rights with respect to any awards or the Program. Awards shall be valid only on properties participating in the Agoda Rewards Program as determined by Agoda. Participating properties will clearly display the Agoda Rewards logo and the booking process will clearly show if Rewards Points are able to be redeemed or accrued. Agoda shall not be held liable for any changes that result in the cancellation of a participating property from the program.
Agoda will not be liable or responsible in any manner for any tax consequences which may result from a Member's participation in the Program. Each Member is solely responsible for the payment of all taxes payable and benefits acquired as a result of such Member's participation in the Program and earning, conversion, holding and/or use of Rewards Points and for all applicable filing and reporting obligations. Members should consult with their tax advisors regarding the accumulation, conversion and use of Rewards Points.
Suppliers may be added to or removed from the Program at any time with or without notice. In the event that a Supplier is removed from the Program, the Member will still retain any Rewards Points remaining in the Member's Account that were earned through that Supplier.
