Any cash back amount that is not redeemed by the Primary Cardholder by the last day of the period covered by your December statement will be automatically redeemed, resulting in your cash back balance being reset to 0, and applied as a credit on your next statement, or, in limited circumstances, at such other time as may be permitted by CIBC.
