Terms and Conditions

Availment of Cash Advances shall be subject to the Terms and Conditions governing Citibank Card, in addition to the following terms and conditions.

  1. DEFINITIONS

    BANK means Citibank, N.A - Philippine Branch, the institution offering Citibank MasterCard and/or Citibank VISA credit cards.

    CARD means the Citibank VISA/MasterCard, as the case may be, issued by the Bank to the Cardholder, and shall include the Principal Card and any and every Supplementary Card under the Card Account, unless the context otherwise requires.

    Card Account means the Citibank VISA/MasterCard account, as the case may be, opened by the Bank for the purpose of entering all credits and debits received or incurred by the Cardholder.

    Cardholder in relation to any Card means the person to whom the Card is issued by the Bank, whether the Principal cardholder or Supplementary Cardholder, if any, unless the context otherwise requires.

    Cash Advance means any cash amount in any currency lent to the Cardholder by the Bank and made available through Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) or counters of the Bank or any other participating bank or financial institution, at its branches in the Philippines or selected overseas branches; ATMs of BancNet, Megalink or Expressnet, VISA/PLUS and MasterCard/Maestro/Cirrus networks or associated networks of VISA or MasterCard, whether in the Philippines or abroad.

    PIN refers to the 4-digit personal identification number issued to the Cardholder or selected by the Cardholder from time to time if permitted by the Bank under these Terms and Conditions to enable the Card to be used at an ATM for a Cash Advance. PINs may be changed by the Cardholder at Citibank Philippines ATMs after validation by the Bank's systems. Additionally, Cardholders can request for regeneration of PINs through CitiPhone. PIN regeneration is systems-controlled and confidential; CitiPhone Representatives are not privy to the Cash Advance PINs.

    BANK means Citibank, N.A - Philippine Branch, the institution offering Citibank MasterCard and/or Citibank VISA credit cards.

  2. AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

    Any use of the Card together with the Cash Advance PIN to obtain cash in any of the authorized ATMs constitutes the Cardholder's agreement to these Cash Advance Terms and Conditions.

  3. PIN
    3.1

    Every Cardholder, whether Principal or Supplementary, is given a unique PIN. A Cardholder who has both a Principal Citibank MasterCard and a principal Citibank VISA will be issued only one PIN. However, a Supplementary Cardholder with a Supplementary Citibank MasterCard and Supplementary Citibank VISA will be given two different PINs, one for each card.

    3.2

    The Principal Cardholder is responsible to the Bank for all transactions of his Supplementary Cardholder/s on the Card account with respect to Cash Advances.

    3.3

    The Cash Advance PIN issued to the Cardholder by the Bank is not the same number as his Citibank ATM PIN or 24-Hour CitiPhone T-PIN. The Cardholder may change his Cash Advance PIN if he wishes. The Bank strongly advices the Cardholder to choose a number which is different from those he may already have. While having the same PIN is clearly a convenience which the Cardholder may avail of, the Cardholder recognizes the risk of doing so since any compromise on the PIN may result in unauthorized use of his account.

    3.4

    The Cardholder can change the Cash Advance PIN by using an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) at a local Citibank Branch. In case the Cardholder forgets his existing Cash Advance PIN, he can call the 24-Hour CitiPhone to have the same number regenerated and sent to him.

    3.5

    The Cardholder shall not, under any circumstances, disclose the PIN to any other party and shall take all steps to prevent its discovery by any other party.

    3.6

    The security of the Cash Advance PIN is very important. Failure to observe the security requirements shall result in Cardholder's liability for unauthorized transactions on the Card.

  4. RESPONSIBILITY IN CASH ADVANCE

    The Cardholder shall be fully liable to the Bank for all Cash Advances made with the PIN and all Charges imposed in relation thereto, regardless of whether such Cash Advance was made with or without the knowledge or authorization of the Cardholder.

    The Cardholder hereby authorizes Citibank to charge to the card account the amount of any Cash Advances in accordance with the Bank's records.

  5. CASH ADVANCE LIMIT

    The Cardholder may use his Card to obtain Cash Advances up to the limit determined by Citibank from time to time, whether or not such limit is made known to the Cardholder.

  6. TRANSACTION RECORDS

    Cash Advance transactions are recorded and substantiated either by a transaction record or receipt. The Cardholder accepts these documents as conclusive and binding evidence of the Cash Advance transactions.

  7. CHARGES

    Cash Advance transactions are subject to service fees and finance charges, the rates of which may be changed from the time by Citibank. Finance charges shall be computed from the day of the Cash Advance availment. Notice of change in service fees and finance charges may be done by way of posting in the Bank's premises, messages in monthly statements and/or billing inserts.

  8. INTERNATIONAL CASH ADVANCE ACCESS

    In connection with Cash Advance at ATMs located outside the Philippines, the Cardholder declares that while availing of the Cash Advance, he is a resident of the Philippines. Once he ceases to be a resident, he undertakes to inform the Bank of this fact.

    Citibank Philippines must make arrangements for transaction data to be collected, stored and communicated for processing. Such processing may include identifying account balance information and will, in whole or in part, be performed electronically. In addition, transaction processing may be performed by other entities either in the country where the ATM is used or elsewhere.

    The Cardholder is aware that the Cash Advance transaction necessitates (1) the collection, storage, communication and processing of identifying account balance information by any means necessary for Citibank Philippines to maintain appropriate transaction and account records; (2) the release and transmission to participant and processors in either the Mastercard or VISA network of details of cardholder's account and transaction information and other data necessary to enable his availment of Cash Advance outside of the country; (3) the retention of such information and data by the said participants and processors in both networks; and (4) compliance by the said participants and processors with laws and regulations governing disclosure of information to which such participants and processors are subject.

    The records evidencing availments of Cash Advances outside the Philippines constitute the application required under BSP Circular no. 645 Series of 2009, for the purchase of foreign exchange for non-trade purposes. Finally, the Cardholder warrants that the Cash Advances shall not be used for foreign investments or payments of foreign loans in violation of pertinent rules, regulations and circulars of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas applicable to foreign exchange.

  9. CHANGES IN TERMS AND CONDITIONS

    The Bank shall be entitled to change all or any of these Terms and Conditions with advance notice to Cardholders. Reference to these "Terms and Conditions" and to any particular condition, in these "Terms and Conditions" shall be interpreted to mean these Terms and Conditions or that particular condition respectively, as changed from time to time in accordance herewith.
