In rare instances, your period to spend $1,000 may be shorter than 30 days if there is a delay in receiving your Card. Also, purchases may fall outside of the 30-day period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped).

Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits.
