    1. Blocked Account for free (the “BFF Campaign”) is a special offer for all customers who apply for the Value Package as well as customers who upgrade into the Value Package between 30 June to 31 October 2023. To avail the cashback, eligible customers in the BFF Campaign have to successfully activate the health insurance coverage with DR-WALTER or Techniker Krankenkasse. The total cashback is limited to a maximum of €49 set-up fee + 12 times the monthly service fee (i.e. €49 setup fee + 12 months * €5 monthly service fee = €109 cashback). Special terms and conditions apply.
    2. TK-Flex is an elective tariff and only available for eligible TK health insurance customers. Once the TK membership is activated, TK-Flex can commence. Expatrio will provide the customer with detailed guidelines on how to do this. Within TK-Flex, users have the option to deselect/opt out of services they do not need. In return, there is a cashback bonus of up to €90 per year.
