I did this yesterday and after getting a successful application, it told me that it could not link the £25 credit to my Amazon account and that it would do in up to 7 days! So I've just complained to them, using their online complaints form, because that's a deliberate con, knowing that the Amazon Prime deals are ending tonight. It's also damaged my credit rating as I can now no longer get credit! Bastards! Don't know if the financial ombudsman can help me but I will complaint to him if they don't give me a good answer!


I actually can't tell if that's serious or not..

This isn't related to the prime day offer so i don't get why you think it would be a con that they can't add the £25 discount instantly.
It's not 'damaged' your credit rating, it'll take a hit because you applied for credit, which you knowingly did.. If your credit rating was such a concern would £25 really make the difference here?

If you complain to an ombudsman be prepared for them to laugh you out the room just because you didn't get your £25 credit instantly.

You applied for the same card twice on the same day? Christ.. In future maybe avoid credit cards..

Well, that's your opinion and it is certainly not a dumb thing to do. I have stacks of cards I use for offers, churn Amex every six months for the intro bonus among many others. Personally, I have a mortgage and other than that I owe no money so I use credit card applications and churning as well as bank switches to earn more, what exactly is dumb about that? Sure, it shows on your record that you applied for a card but if you don't need credit right now or are not up for remortgage within 6 months, what exactly is the issue? I flew Upper Class with Virgin Atlantic to Orlando and then back again from Los Angeles a couple of years ago and all it cost me was around £500 in taxes for me and the other half, less than the cost of an economy return and we were treated like royalty. That was only possible through applying for offers on cards and being clever with them. I've had countless hotel stays for nothing, I hold a Silver status at Hilton giving me upgrades and other perks when I stay too. Nearly every £1 I currently spend is earning me more Flying Club points, which is getting me closer to taking my daughter to Orlando Upper Class, again something I just couldn't do comfortably on my salary! Granted, £25 is not a great deal, but currently I have a bottle of Elijah Craig Small Batch heading my way which was on a Lightning Deal and it didn't cost me a penny. Great deal, and if you're savvy with credit cards, it certainly isn't dumb!

Well not entirely true...it can if the wife is using YOUR bank card for payment.

Its usually £10 but this is running with the prime day or whatever it is called on at the moment.

Same company which do a lot of the store cards, like M&S and so on I believe. Similar mould. Its basic card though, you sign up.. get the reward and thats it as far as perks go other then having the credit card to use.

Pretty sure I have the same card and you also receive effectively 1% return on what you pay when purchasing on Amazon, so if you spend £1000 you receive a £10 gift card to your account. I spend a lot on amazon each year and use this card for every purchase only there. If you spend a lot on amazon then this is a good card. Good find op.
Just signed up, heat from me.

Actually yeah that is correct, no idea why I overlooked that. The rewards per purchase are also relatively good / inline with industry standard for reward cards.
Steve_goben17/07/2018 14:04

No promotional purchase or transfer offer... so no it’s not a good card. If you do get one make sure you pay off in full each month

Earn 3 Amazon Reward Points per £2 spent at Amazon.co.uk

1,000 points = £10 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card

Does that not equal a 1.5% return which is as good as I get with Amex, so yes a very good deal IMHO

£10 on £1000 hardly seems worthwhile.

Hi folks, though this might be a good place to ask - my wife is trying to build her credit rating. Will merely owning a credit card do that or would she actually need to use it?


TIA!
Great deal. Many thanks.
You can also get £20 for applying to the Amazon CLASSIC Mastercard - though I'm not sure if you can still get it if you have the Platinum already. Worth a try!

Use it to pay for groceries or petrol and clear it off at the end of the month.
Anyone know if you can get a second card with this linked to the same account so me and the Mrs can use the same card/account?

It actually also says in the T's & C's that £25 would only be credited instantly if he/she qualified for instant credit. If not, it states it can take 7 days. Nothing to see here!

I have a number of cashback credi cards including Amex = 1.5% on any spend that accepts amex but requires a 10K annual spend (I think). The amazon card works out at 1% which is better than you'll receive at just about anywhere in addition to the £25 bonus for taking out the card (if accepted). If you pay your card off in full each month, which I assume people applying for such are card will and hence don't accrue any interest fees, it's money in the pocket which is better than zip.

@FrostbiteXIII I don't think this card would be suitable. I'm not 100% sure if you can set up direct debit to clear it each month.. but I know for a fact most banks would have entry level credit cards which do have that feature. Simply pay 1st day bill is in, automatically like any direct debit so you don't need to proactively do anything (other then have the money available)

Use your debit card or non rewards card instead and get £0.

No one is advocating spending money to earn rewards but use a rewards card instead of your debit card for a year and see what a difference it makes.
If it is 3 points per £2 spend at Amazon and 1 point per £2 elsewhere...

This is 1.5% cashback at Amazon and 0.5% elsewhere?

Guess not bad for when somewhere doesn’t take Amex

You can, on their website it's extremely easy, it says it may not be in place for the first month's bill, but it will definitely be in place for the second.

When I set up mine months ago it was in place before the first bill
