I missed the Amazon Platinum card sign-up deal, offering a £40 gift card - but spotted this current, £25 Amazon gift card sign-up deal for the Amazon Classic Mastercard.

Explain?
If you actually need a credit card, there are probably better options.

If you don't, then it's up to you whether the effort, the effect on your credit score*, and the potential temptation to build debt is worth £25.

*Whilst I appreciate that this effect can be positive over time if used properly, it could equally be negative if not, and in any case generally makes a short-term dent in your score upon applying.

I have this card.

There are better options out there both in terms of point accrual Vs redemption rates ( poor) and customer service, which is mediocre

There are several other comments posted on this forum about this product. You may want to take a look before you sign up.
Anyone actually managed to register recently, Have tried both Chrome and IE but either get "validation error" message or screen with terms and conditions but no navigation buttons to continue. Tried both my Amazon account and wife, same problem. Both of us have good credit scores, web site seems faulty. Unreal for 2 big companies to run a web site a customer can't navigate.
As a single retired person, with a £24000 per year income, my friend (via google chrome) has just been told he wasn't eligible.

I think it's considered a positive to have a credit card, leastways it's a NEGATIVE not to have one, in the world of credit scores. I suspect you could big-up yer income to get the card (so the £25 gift card) if yer could be bothered?

I remember when I applied to this company (Newday) and hit the wrong key when I input my DOB, (a guaranteed fail you would have thought) but it went through...I only picked-up on it when I had to input my dob (after I had a card) to log-in, and input the CORRECT date, and Newday (when I called em?) shut me down

It has no effect on your score (so they said) to find out if you would be accepted, but if you are, and plan to make a purchase where you could use the £25 gift card (known to be an instant credit at times) £25 fer 5 minutes (tops) on a keyboard?, not the end of the world methinks.
If you get the gift card for just signing up & being accepted without the need to make a card transaction then the best thing is to cut it up as soon as it drops through the door if you're concerned about running up a debt.

A bit of a generalisation here I know, but the amazon credit cards are done by NewDay - and despite having cards with them for a number of years for other high street retailers like House Of Fraser and Debenhams - and the fact that my salary has almost doubled since taking those cards out and I have a very good credit rating - they denied me a card - telling I failed the credit check - without caring to explain why. I opened a case with their team and after 3+ months of so called diligence they said we can't do much as you didn't meet the criteria, then I asked the ombudsman to step in, and its still ongoing. This has been now going on for more than 4 months - leading to much frustration, possibly a mark on my credit file and what not.

Again I know a massive generalisation, but I am not going to touch them with a barge pole - since then I have also returned their other CC and decided not to do any business with them.
Would this work with a mastercard prepaid?
