Your Loyalty Program and/or the PointsPay Merchant may have restrictions on whether this Points redemption feature is enabled, the minimum number of Points that may be redeemed in a transaction, if cash may be used and/or the permitted cash proportion of a transaction.
3.2. Payment with Points
Provided that you have sufficient Points available in your Loyalty Program account at the time of Transaction, you can make Transactions for such amount of Points as indicated to you within PointsPay once you have chosen your product on the PointsPay Merchant’s website and then selected PointsPay as your payment option.

Should you not have sufficient Points available in your Loyalty Program account at the time of the Transaction, or should you prefer to pay only part in Points, provided that the relevant PointsPay Merchant and your Loyalty Program permit you to, you may pay the difference in cash (by debit card or credit card) in accordance with the PointsPay terms by choosing your preferred points and cash portion. Points are deducted from your Loyalty Program account as soon as an item is purchased. Card payments are executed as described in Clause 3.3 hereinafter.
3.3. Payment by Debit or Credit Card
When redeeming Points towards a Transaction, if permitted by your Loyalty Program and the relevant PointsPay Merchant you may pay part of the price by debit card or credit card.
