surprize rewards programme

With the surprize rewards programme you earn valuable points with every transaction you make worldwide using your eligible payment card.  
You can view the points you have earned at any time in your personal account and redeem them for attractive rewards at one-digitalservice.ch and in the “one” app. You will also receive personalised offers that let you benefit from special campaigns or order rewards on attractive terms.

All individuals who hold an eligible payment card are automatically included in the rewards programme. surprize points earned by the holder of an additional card are processed through and credited to the surprize account of the primary cardholder.
All surprize partners offer just vouchers or donation opportunities in the rewards shop. surprize supplements the partner offering with non-cash rewards in its own name. These non-cash rewards are managed operationally by “Boost Loyalty”.
The surprize rewards programme does not cost you anything extra.

Discover the benefits of surprize:

  • Additional points can be earned in special campaigns and contests.

surprize points

You earn surprize points on every purchase you make with your eligible payment card anywhere in the world. surprize points are not credited for cash withdrawals or fees charged by the card issuer.
It is easy to earn points. Here is how:
  • 1 point per Swiss franc for all purchases made with your card
  • Additional points for special campaigns, contests and other offers
The points earned are credited to your surprize account. Please note that there may be a lag between the time your transaction is made and the time the points are credited to your surprize account.

 

The surprize points you earn are credited to your surprize account two days after your purchase, at the earliest.

The amount of your purchase is rounded down to the next whole franc 
Example: Purchase for CHF 11.60 = 11 surprize points

All individuals who hold an eligible payment card are automatically included in the rewards programme. 
surprize points earned by the holder of an additional card are processed through and credited to the surprize account of the primary cardholder.

You can view your current points balance at any time at one-digitalservice.ch or in the “one” app.
Please note that surprize points earned with an additional card are also processed through and credited to the surprize account of the primarily cardholder.
You can exchange your points for vouchers or non-cash rewards at any time at one-digitalservice.ch and in the “one” app. You also have the option of donating your surprize points to a selected organisation. You can support a good cause once you have 100 points or more.
No. Only the primary cardholder is entitled to exchange surprize points for rewards.

surprize points are valid for a nominal period of three years and always expire on 31 December of the year in which they are due to lapse. You can check whether your surprize points are about to expire at any time at one-digitalservice.ch

surprize rewards

The fundamental difference is between paper vouchers, digital voucher codes and gift cards. Paper vouchers can be redeemed in the branches or stores of the partner concerned and are sent to you by post. Some paper vouchers can also be redeemed online. Digital voucher codes are intended for use in online shops and are sent to you by e-mail.
Gift cards – depending on the partner – can be redeemed both online and in partner branches or stores and are sent to you by post.
The detailed descriptions of the individual rewards tell you exactly what type of voucher is on offer and how it will be delivered to you.

The supplier of the reward is either a surprize partner or “Boost Loyalty”. You will find the contact information of the supplier of the reward in the order confirmation, which you will receive by e-mail after you place your order.
Non-cash rewards and paper vouchers are sent to you by post to your stored billing address. This is done within two weeks of the order date.

Banking package rewards

The “Banking package rewards” category is only available to surprize participants who have an active package solution with a participating bank. These customers can exchange the surprize points they have earned for a credit paid into the personal account associated with the respective package solution.
The rewards are only visible if the following criteria are met:
  • You are a surprize participant and have an active package solution with a participating bank
  • You have not yet reached the limit on reward redemptions for the current calendar year
  • In your surprize account, you have selected the eligible card associated with your package solution (this applies to holders of multiple cards attached to the same account)
If you are a surprize participant who has an active package solution with a participating bank, you can exchange the surprize points you have earned for a credit paid into your personal account. You can choose to exchange 9 000 surprize points for CHF 20 or 18 000 surprize points for CHF 40. Please note that only one of these rewards can be purchased at a time.
To benefit from a package reward, visit one-digitalservice.ch or open the “one” app and log in. In the rewards shop, go to the surprize tab where you can view the details of the package reward directly and provide binding confirmation of the purchase of your chosen reward by clicking on the “Order” button. To see the rewards and be able to purchase them, you must have an active package solution with a participating bank, have a sufficient number of points and have not yet reached the limit on the number of account credits for the current calendar year. After you have concluded the purchase, you will receive confirmation by e-mail.
You can choose between the following two rewards: CHF 20 for 9 000 points and CHF 40 for 18 000 points. In any given calendar year, both rewards may be redeemed a maximum of twice each, but only one reward may be purchased at a time. This means that in a given calendar year you can exchange a maximum of 54 000 points for CHF 120. Once you have purchased one of the rewards twice, it will no longer be displayed in the rewards shop.
Immediately after your purchase, the surprize points are deducted and your points total is updated.
The reward is paid into the personal account associated with your bank’s package solution at the beginning of the next month. In your account statement, the credit is designated as “Credit surprize reward – bank name packages”.
In this case, please contact our Customer Service on +41 58 958 84 00 or at info-surprize@one-digitalservice.ch.
