Not many options for 0% spending are there?
John Lewis Mastercard pays out 3 times a year We had about 250 quid in these saved up from around a year's worth of use till very recently but the JL Mastercard works on a more generous reward in store basis than this Amazon one does All other purchases: 0.5p per £1 spent JL/Waitrose purchases: 1p per £1 spent (2p per £1 spent on promotional weekends)
Cool, thanks for the info (y) As you say, I can see it being a decent card as a primary. But I'm looking for a secondary to my Amex Gold so this wouldn't see enough of a spend to be viable for me I don't think. In fact, I'm starting to think that there might not really be a good rewards card out there that can be used as a good secondary. However having said that, the nice thing about the Amazon card is that it pays out as soon as you have £10 worth of points. Unlike other rewards cards which only pay out after a year. Not to mention they're currently offering a £20/25 sign up gift card.
Well, yes, 0.5% of £2000 is indeed £10. But if you spend £1K or even £2K a month it adds up.
Thanks for your reply. Just been reading this on MSE and worst case scenario (non Amazon spending only - 0.5% cashback) you'd need to spend £2000 before you see a £10 gift card... 0.5 points per £1 spent = 1 point per £2 spent = 1000 points per £2000 spent 1000 points = £10 gift card Unless I'm missing something?
