*Promotion begins at 12:00 a.m. EST on April 1, 2021, and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on August 31, 2021, or when the maximum US$5,000,000 donation goal is reached, whichever comes first (“Promotion Period”). Qualifying purchases can be made only at or from a qualifying U.S. Restaurant and U.S. Grocery Store. U.S. Restaurant and U.S. Grocery Store qualification will each be determined and defined by the applicable Mastercard Merchant Category Code. A Merchant Category Code is used to classify a business by the types of goods or services it provides. Debit PIN and international transactions are ineligible.

For each qualifying and reported U.S. Restaurant and U.S. Grocery Store (as defined by the applicable Mastercard Merchant Category Code) purchase made with a U.S.-issued Mastercard as either a contactless or an e-commerce (online – website/app) transaction, a one cent (US$0.01) donation will be made by Mastercard to Stand Up To Cancer, up to the maximum US$5,000,000 donation goal.

Contactless-enabled Mastercards are accepted at participating U.S. locations that have contactless enabled at checkout. Visit for more details. Mastercard relies on third parties to classify a transaction. In the event that a qualifying contactless transaction is not classified as a contactless transaction or under a qualifying Mastercard Merchant Category Code by a third party and reported to Mastercard but would otherwise have been a qualifying transaction, the transaction will not count as a qualifying transaction nor be eligible for the one cent (US$0.01) donation by Mastercard to Stand Up To Cancer.

Mastercard may suspend or terminate this promotion at any time in its sole discretion.
