How you can earn points

• You’ll earn points on your gross processing volume, minus returns, refunds, or chargebacks (collectively, the
“purchases”), made with a card in your business(s).
• You’ll earn:
A percentage of your gross processing determined by your processing provider in the form of rewards for each $1 spent. Tuzo Rewards does not set or control the rate at which points are earned and only facilitates to collection and redemption process. Any issues or questions related to the rate at which points are earned should be directed to your merchant services provider.
Rewards Categories: Tuzo works to provide a wide array of Reward redemption categories and options which are viewable and redeemable upon login to your account at tuzo.app.

• Tuzo or your processor may offer you ways to earn bonus points through the program, such as Refer-a-Friend, or special promotions. You’ll find out more about the number of bonus points you can earn, the duration of the offer and expiration date, if any, and any other terms at the time of the offer. The additional terms will be part of this agreement. The natural expiration of a limited time bonus point offer is not a modification to the program that requires notification.

Other information about the earning and availability of points

• Points are earned at the close of each monthly billing cycle, based on the processing completed during that billing cycle, plus any bonus points posted during that billing cycle, but minus any returns, refunds, or chargebacks. If you have more returns or refunds than points earned from processing or bonuses, then points will be deducted from your total point balance and may result in a negative point balance.
• You’ll see points you’ve earned on Tuzo.app.
• We may, from time to time, provide additional ways for you to see points you’ve earned, such as through Tuzo or third-party mobile application(s).
• Points earned in a monthly billing cycle are generally available to be used at the beginning of the next billing cycle; however, points earned on gross sales made near the end of a billing cycle may take up to one additional billing cycle to become available.

How you can use your points

You can use your points to redeem for any available reward options. Options may include: travel, electronics, luxury goods, gift cards, experiences and more. You may also contact Tuzo to take advantage of our Rewards Concierge Services to use your points for items and services not available through the application.

• To use your points, minimum and maximum amounts may apply. We’ll let you know about any minimum or maximum amounts, as well as any additional terms and conditions, before you use your points.
