Amazon launches UK credit card
Amazon.co.uk has launched a MasterCard credit card to be issued by MBNA Europe Bank.
The card allows customers to apply and then make purchases online immediately if their application has been approved.
It also offers a Loyalty Points scheme which can be redeemed against millions of products on the Amazon.co.uk website. If they spend on their card within 180 days of account opening, customers will receive a one-off £15 credit into their credit card account.
Whenever an Amazon.co.uk MasterCard customer spends on their card, Loyalty Points will automatically accumulate. The points are converted to gift certificates, emailed to customers and can be redeemed against products on the Amazon.co.uk website.
The card offers customers benefits including:
– For purchases on Amazon.co.uk, the cardholder will be rewarded with 1 Loyalty Point for every £1 they spend (£10 of card purchases will earn 10 points)
– For purchases outside Amazon.co.uk, the cardholder will be rewarded with 1 Loyalty Point for every £2 they spend (£10 of card purchases will earn 5 points)
