Promo Mechanics

What are the mechanics

Spend wiser overseas with your Metrobank World Mastercard!

  1. The lower Metrobank Foreign Currency (FX) Service Fee of 1.85% (“Promo”) is valid from January 29, 2024 to April 30, 2024 only (“Promo Period”).

  2. The Promo is open to all existing and newly-approved Metrobank World Mastercard principal and supplementary cardholders (the “Cardholder”) in good credit standing. Good credit standing refers to cardholders whose accounts are not delinquent, not under investigation due to suspected fraudulent activities, those whose Metrobank credit cards are not reported lost or stolen, and those who have not, otherwise, violated any of the Terms and Conditions Governing the Issuance and Use of Metrobank Credit Cards.

  3. To enjoy the Promo, Cardholders should use their Metrobank World Mastercard for their in-store and online foreign currency transactions and choose to have the transactions processed or billed in foreign currency other than Philippine Pesos within the Promo Period.

  4. Foreign currency transactions processed or billed in Philippine Peso at point of sale, whether executed in the Philippines, overseas, or online, shall not be eligible for the Promo.

  5. All eligible foreign currency transactions including the following fees, totalling 3.5%, will be reflected as one line item in the Statement of Account:

    • 1% Cross Border Service Fee, which represents the costs incurred to process the payment for the foreign currency transactions through the Card Network (i.e. Visa, Mastercard), acquiring bank and/or foreign merchant affiliates.

    • 2.5% Forex Processing Fee, which represents the costs needed by Metrobank to internally process the foreign currency transactions.

  6. Eligible customers can enjoy a reduction from the aforementioned 3.5% fee to 1.85% within the Promo Period, and will be reflected as a rebate. The rebate will be credited and shown as “FX Rebate Promo” on the next Statement of Account or not later than 60 calendar days from the posting date of eligible foreign currency transactions.
