7. SWYCHING GIFT CARDS, REDEMPTION AND SWYCH POINTS
Swych offers consumers ability to send gift cards to recipients. Senders can select a card from a list displayed on the app. When a recipient receives the gift, he/she can choose to redeem the gift by accepting the brand sent by Sender, choose a different brand to redeem, cash out to a debit card or simply save the card for later. The gift amount available to recipient may vary based on option chosen and the associated cost of that option. Swych app will clearly display the options and the associated cost to recipient for each choice. Once a recipient selects a brand to redeem, Swych will deliver a digital card to recipient’s wallet of choice and the transaction will be complete. Recipient will no longer have the choice to select a different brand to redeem from that particular gift transaction. If the recipient chooses to save card and redeem later, the funds will be available in recipient’s account for redemption later. Once a user moves a gift card using Swych into the mobile wallet of their choice, they cannot Swych it back and use of that gift card will be subject to the terms and conditions of that mobile wallet. Similarly, any gift card for that is purchased through the App is treated as instantly redeemed and the user cannot “Swych” it into another card.

The purchase of each gift card will be governed by certain terms and conditions established by the issuing Vendor. Vendors may set restrictions and requirements on their gift cards and users should review and familiarize themselves with all applicable Vendor terms and conditions prior to purchasing any gift card. Users can earn a limited amount of Swych Points for referring friends and family. Users can choose to use their earned Swych Points towards the purchase of gift cards and can be used in combination with other payment methods.
