Prime member can now get £20 Amazon credit (not promo credit), instead of the usual £10, for creating a platium credit card. Easy to do, but be aware having various credit cards can affect your credit rating

I don't disagree, but useful as an f.y.i. I don't use credit cards myself so seeing it as a free £20 voucher within 5 mins.

Would you really sell a piece of your credit history for a measly £20? Feable offering - far better to sign up for a Virgin Black Amex with 30,000 bonus miles (enough for a free economy return flight to LA + tax).

Don't tell half the story.

The more generous fee-carrying card is the Virgin Atlantic Black Credit Card.

This card comes with an annual fee of £140, with a sign-up bonus of 25,000 Virgin Flying Club miles. The standard offer on this card is 18,500 miles so the additional bonus is 6,500.

You will receive 18,500 miles with your first purchase and a further 6,500 miles when you spend £3,000 in the first 90 days.

I got this when it was £10 free and my credit rating actually went up a few points

I haven't had a credit card yet so is this a good starting card or are there any better out there - free and rewarding ...? (don't need miles, so no Virgin)

Aside from the £20, the Amazon reward buildup is pretty poor, I think there are better options with cashback on a few cards like Amex. Or if you use Tesco a lot, theirs gives clubcard points etc.

I applied for this last week for the £10 Amazon credit. Tempted to complain for the extra £10 lol If you don't ask........

I would def ask, Amazon are quite good at appeasing customers. I did last year for an audible deal and they honoured it for me.

Tesco have a credit card that has an interest rate of 9% .. surely thats gonna make more difference to people on an ongoing basis (9% vs 29%)
