‘It’s On Us’ is a programme of free prize draws that will include eligible sterling debit and credit card transactions up to and including £500 made by our qualifying customers. It means that those customers whose transactions are randomly selected will be paid back the value of that transaction. It is our way of saying thank you for being a customer. Participating in ‘It’s On Us’ will not affect any of the conditions of your Lloyds Bank current account (including the personal banking terms and conditions) or credit card.
When a transaction is selected, we will pay an amount equal to that transaction into the relevant Lloyds Bank current account on or before the last working day of the following month. If a selected transaction is for an amount under £5, our payment will be rounded up to £5.
When you sign up for ‘It’s On Us’, your eligible debit and/or credit card transactions will automatically be entered into the relevant ‘It’s On Us’ pool of transactions from which the random selections will be made. If you make more than one eligible debit or credit card transaction on any day, each individual one will be entered separately.
Qualifying customers can sign up for ‘It’s On Us’.To be a qualifying customer you must:
To sign up for ‘It’s On Us’, simply log onto Internet Banking and activate the ‘It’s On Us’ offer in the Everyday Offers homepage. Print, save or take a screen shot of these rules for your records.
To participate in ‘It’s On Us’ you must be an individual, holding a Lloyds Bank personal current account which offers a debit card. You may also hold a Lloyds Bank personal credit card.
If you are a joint holder of a Lloyds Bank personal current account then, in order to be in with a chance of having one or more of your debit card transactions paid back, you must sign up for Everyday Offers and activate the ‘It’s On Us’ offer in your own name. Any other joint account holder will have to sign up in their own name for their own chance to be paid back.
If you have a Lloyds Bank credit card, it must be held in your name as primary cardholder. If you are an additional cardholder then your transactions may be eligible, and any payment back will be made into the primary cardholder's Lloyds Bank current account if they have activated the ‘It’s On Us’ offer.
If you leave Everyday Offers or ‘It’s On Us’, or we terminate your participation for any reason, your involvement in ‘It’s On Us’ will automatically be cancelled the same day and no further transactions by you will be included in future selections.
These are the transactions that will be included in the ‘It’s On Us’ random selections. They must:
Eligible transactions can be made in a variety of ways including in person, online, over the phone, by mobile payment or contactless technology. We will not supply you with a list of your eligible transactions that have been entered in any particular ‘It’s On Us’ selection.
From 28th November 2013, we will randomly select 1,001 eligible debit or credit card transactions of up to and including £500 to pay back each week.
We will randomly select 143 transactions each day from the eligible debit and credit card transactions processed on the three consecutive days prior to that selection. The table below shows when the processed transactions will be entered into a selection:
|Selection day||Includes transactions processed on three preceding days|
|Monday||Friday, Saturday, Sunday|
|Tuesday||Saturday, Sunday, Monday|
|Wednesday||Sunday, Monday, Tuesday|
|Thursday||Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday|
|Friday||Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday|
|Saturday||Wednesday, Thursday, Friday|
|Sunday||Thursday, Friday, Saturday|
Transactions are not always processed on the day you use your credit or debit card. The way our systems work means that there could be a one or two day delay between you using your debit or credit card and the transaction being processed. In addition, we only process debit and credit card transactions on working days. Where a transaction is made on a non-working day, it will usually be processed the next working day, although as explained above there could be a delay. This mostly affects weekend transactions, which will usually be processed the following Monday (as long as that is a working day).
This means that the number of transactions entered into the selections will vary from day to day, depending on how many transactions have been processed, and the day of the week. Because we don't process transactions on non-working days, there are likely to be fewer transactions in selections that take place on Mondays, whilst selections on Wednesdays and Sundays are likely to have more transactions included.
However, we strongly advise you not to change your spending behaviour based on these possible variations. This summary is only an indication of what usually happens, however this can vary on any day, depending on how many transactions each of our customers makes each day. Also, the delay between the day you use your card and the day the transaction is processed means that you cannot be sure when your transaction will be processed. ‘It’s On Us’ selections are always random.
When an individual transaction has been selected, it will be removed from the pool of transactions for selection and will not be carried forward for a subsequent selection. It will therefore not be possible for an individual transaction to be selected more than once.
If an ‘It’s On Us’ random selection cannot take place as scheduled, and is not cancelled under these rules, it will take place as soon as reasonably possible afterwards, following the mechanics explained above.
You will be able to see if one of your transactions has been selected through your Everyday Offers homepage. It will appear as an entry with the merchant name ‘It’s On Us’ within your earnings statement. We may also tell you in other ways, for example within Internet Banking or, if we have your permission to do so, by email, where we hold a valid email address. This will usually be within three to ten days of your transaction being made. We will make your payment into the relevant current account on or before the last working day of the following month. (Please bear in mind that if your transaction was carried out over a month end, weekend or bank holiday, this can affect when we make your payment as, due to our systems, there may be a day or two between your transaction being carried out and the ‘It’s On Us’ random selection.) We will never ask you directly for any account information for this purpose, for example if we email you.
If your qualifying transaction is for an amount under £5 and is selected, we will round the value up and pay £5 into the relevant current account.
If a qualifying customer has a transaction selected, but dies at any time before we are due to pay it, the transaction value will be paid into the relevant current account, as long as it is still open.
Details of all selected transactions, including customer name, county of residence and reimbursement amount will be available on request by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org address, and by signing up for ‘It’s On Us’ you agree that we may use this limited information about you in this way. We may ask customers whose transactions are selected to take part in further publicity.
If a qualifying customer participating in ‘It’s On Us’ is also an employee of one of the companies in Lloyds Banking Group, we will meet any tax liabilities that may result from the draw. There is therefore no requirement for such colleagues to take any action in relation to their tax position.
We try our best to make sure that our records are correct, and that all qualifying debit and credit card transactions have been included in the relevant ‘It’s On Us’ selection. However, it is possible that, in a small number of cases, a qualifying transaction may be included more than once, or not entered at all.
Where a qualifying transaction is included more than once, we will not be responsible in any way to other ‘It’s On Us’ participants. We’ll take reasonable steps to prevent an individual transaction from being selected more than once. If, for whatever reason, a qualifying transaction is left out of our records or out of an individual ‘It’s On Us’ selection, we will not be responsible to the qualifying customer for any potential payment back he or she could have had.
We will also not be responsible to any qualifying customer if a particular selection cannot go ahead, is delayed or cancelled because of a legal or regulatory issue, a systems failure, the failure by any third party to perform services or for any cause beyond our reasonable control.
