The AmalgaMiles Program is amended January 1, 2010, for all new purchases charged to your Amalgamated Bank of Chicago personal BankCard as follows: One dollar charged for purchases equals one AmalgaMile. The program is based on net purchases and does not include cash advances, balance transfers, traveler's checks, late fees, annual fees or finance charges.
Your account must be open and in good standing and applicable membership fees paid. Accounts more than 60 days past due will not earn AmalgaMiles and will not receive awards earned while past due.
You agree to pay an annual program fee of $15 if you have a Union Card or $29 if you have any other type of card. The fee will be charged to your Amalgamated Bank of Chicago Credit Account "Account" on the monthly statement following the one year anniversary date that you enrolled in the program and each year thereafter until your enrollment in AmalgaMiles is terminated or cancelled. Beginning in January 2011 and each year thereafter, we will refund to your Account any annual program fee you paid in the previous year if you made at least four BONUS AmalgaMiles transactions on your account in the previous year. BONUS AmalgaMiles transactions are defined as transactions at qualifying BONUS AmalgaMiles merchants, a list of which can be found at
You shall pay a $10 redemption fee each time you redeem earned AmalgaMiles for a travel reward equal to or greater than 20,000 AmalgaMiles.
Each 5,000 accumulation of AmalgaMiles earns you a $25 discount toward the purchase of any airfare, on any airline from any available flight domestic or international. Awards can be redeemed only through the AmalgaMiles Redemption Center at least 72 hours before the scheduled departure. Redemptions are deducted from your AmalgaMiles balance as shown on your periodic statement.
You can choose to accumulate 25,000 in unredeemed, unexpired AmalgaMiles and redeem them for one round trip scheduled coach class ticket for travel within the 48 contiguous United States on any U.S. airline that is a member of the Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) and participates in the Amadeus Reservation System. Alternatively, you may receive $350 off any ticket to any destination worldwide.
Accumulate 50,000 in unredeemed, unexpired AmalgaMiles and redeem them for two round trip scheduled coach class tickets to any destination in the 48 contiguous United States. Alternately, you may receive $700 off any ticket to any destination worldwide.
All airfare tickets are nonrefundable, nontransferable, nonchangeable coach class fares, which require a 14 day advance purchase. Tickets are subject to availability. All airlines must be a member of the Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC), and participate in the Amadeus Reservation System. Only one airline may be used for any round trip ticket. The value of the underlying round trip ticket cannot exceed $500.
If you accumulate 50,000 in unredeemed, unexpired AmalgaMiles you may select a four day three night cruise for two. All cruises must be booked no later than 90 days in advance of departure.
In addition to reduced fares or airline travel and cruises, AmalgaMiles award levels can be redeemed for travel related items (e.g. shipboard credits, hotel specials, memberships in clubs, and more). See the chart below. These items are available only through the
AmalgaMiles Redemption and Reservation Center; redemption must be at least 14 days prior to travel and is subject to availability under corresponding rules and conditions.
Maximum point accumulations are 5,000 AmalgaMiles per monthly statement cycle with a maximum of 50,000 per year. AmalgaMiles expire three (3) years after issuance if not redeemed. AmalgaMiles are redeemed on a first in, first out basis.
If you have more than one Amalgamated personal BankCard account, you will earn AmalgaMiles separately under each account. You may not combine AmalgaMiles from different accounts to earn an award. AmalgaMiles redemptions may not be used in conjunction with any other coupon offer or discount.
All AmalgaMiles must be redeemed through the AmalgaMiles fully licensed redemption and reservation center. The toll-free number is 1-800-927-0100. You must have a valid Amalgamated Bank of Chicago BankCard and be a qualified participant of the program at the time of redemption. When redeeming AmalgaMiles the remaining balance of any airfare or qualifying travel must be charged to your personal Amalgamated Bank of Chicago BankCard.
AmalgaMiles are nontransferable and must be redeemed by the cardholder, but may be used for another person. The cardholder is responsible for any personal tax liability related to participation in the AmalgaMiles program. If additional fares are purchased without redeeming qualifying AmalgaMiles, those fares will incur a $30 booking fee. The cardholder is also responsible for payment of any excess baggage charges, departure taxes or other charges that may have been assessed by governmental entities as a result of travel under the AmalgaMiles program.
Amalgamated Bank of Chicago and the AmalgaMiles program are not responsible for the performance by the airlines of the ticketed transportation. All reservations are made subject to the conditions of carriage, supply or business of the party providing the service, which include exclusions and limitations of liability.
All travel redemption is processed within 24 hours and sent First Class U.S. Mail, unless departure is within 14 days of the reservation, then tickets are sent via Federal Express, next day standard service for a shipping charge paid by the cardholder. Neither Amalgamated Bank nor the AmalgaMiles program assume responsibility for tickets lost in the mail.
We will charge a Redemption Fee of $10 to your account each time you redeem earned AmalgaMiles for a travel reward equal to or greater than 20,000 AmalgaMiles.
The AmalgaMiles program is void where prohibited by Federal, state, or local law.
