On a particular day, 10 of his friends each top up their respective Shariot wallets with $100.

12.1 To continuously improve Sharioteers’ experience on our platform, Shariot may offer occasional new promotions (“Adhoc Promotions”) in collaboration with its partners or on its own.
b) Top Up Bonus Credits (How It Works)
Shariot may from time to time generate top up bonus promotions that eligible Sharioteers will enjoy additional credits when they meet the top up requirements, for a limited number of top ups, and unused credits will be forfeited at the end of the promotion period, respective to that promotion criteria.
On a particular month, Shariot may publish on any of its social media channels, website or in-app popup notification, to inform Sharioteers of an upcoming Top Up Bonus Credits promotion.
Taking an example of a top up bonus credits promotion with the following critera: $150 for $150 bonus promotion, whose validity period starts from 1st of the month and ends 15th of the month, limited to the first 500 top ups.
This means that a Sharioteer will need to top up $150 into their wallet, to receive an additional $150 bonus credits. The system calculation will deduct funds for each booking from the promotion top up wallet balance first until it is depleted, then deduct funds for each bookings from the credits wallet balance until it is depleted, before deducting funds for each bookings from the original balance existent in the Sharioteer’s wallet. In the event that there is balance credits inside the credit wallet balance, such balance will be deducted automatically and the system will deduct funds for any subsequent bookings from the main wallet balance.
John’s wallet balances before being eligible for a “$150 for $150” bonus credits promotion is as such:
Main wallet: $200
Promotion wallet: $0
Credits wallet: $0
John’s wallet balances after being eligible for a “$150 for $150” bonus credits promotion as such:
Main wallet: $200
Promotion wallet: $150
Credits wallet: $150
John’s wallet balances after making a first booking of $100 is as such:
Main wallet: $200
Promotion wallet: $50
Credits wallet: $150
John’s wallet balances after making a second booking of $100 is as such:
Main wallet: $200
Promotion wallet: $0
Credits wallet: $100
If on the last day of the promotion (example scenario whereby promotion duration is 15 days) there is still credits in the credits wallet, basing on the example above of $100 balance credits, this $100 credits will be forfeited and deducted from the credits wallet, with applicable balances as such:
Main wallet: $200
Promotion wallet: $0
Credits wallet: $0
If John makes a third booking of $120 before the promotion end date (example scenario whereby promotion duration is 15 days), his wallet balances is as such:
Main wallet: $180
Promotion wallet: $0
Credits wallet: $0
c) Adhoc Promotions
$100 for $100 Ad Hoc Promotion
Sharioteers are entitled to an automatic $100 bonus credit when they top-up $100 into their Shariot app wallet. This offer is limited to one top-up per Sharioteer per calendar month, limited to the first 1000 top-ups. If your top-up did not entitle you to the $100 bonus credit, this means that your top-up has crossed the 1000th top-up limit. As such, we encourage frequent Shariot users to top-up as early as possible at the start of each month to stand a higher chance to enjoy this promotion.
Such similar promotions may be announced on short notice on Shariot’s social media accounts, website or affiliated partners’ social media accounts or website.
As most adhoc promotions are planned to last for specific duration only, they may not be explained in this Terms & Conditions page and will be mostly self
explanatory/easily understood. Sharioteers can also contact our Customer Service Officers anytime via our live chat for more information.
The company shall have the sole discretion to create, remove and re-instate any promotions at any time.
