The weekly shop, filling up the car, paying your household bills. All those everyday purchases add up, and so will the cashback if you pay with your Platinum Cashback Credit Card1.

You don’t have to spend any more than you did before. Just use your Card for the things you buy already.

More Cards mean more Cashback

Add an extra Card for a family member or someone close to you. It’s simple, complimentary and you’ll get cashback for virtually everything they buy too. Remember, they must also be UK residents aged 18 or over.

This is one of the fastest ways to boost the amount of cashback you earn. So when it comes to treating yourself, you’ll really notice the difference.

Claim vouchers for bigger rewards

Why not make even more of your Platinum Cashback Credit Card? If you choose to redeem your cashback with retail vouchers, you’ll get an extra 10% on top of your entire cashback balance.

You can choose from a range of fabulous high street brands. Just look out for all the details in your welcome pack.

Discover a host of exclusive deals and discounts from some of the tops brands across fashion, dining, travel and more. What’s more, when you pay for a deal with your Card, you don’t just get the specially negotiated prices. You’ll also earn cashback on everything you buy. Visit for all the latest offers.

Come back with more cashback

As well as helping you unwind, your holiday can reward you in other ways too – with a lot of cashback. So if you’ve got a break planned, the next step is to pay for it using your Card.

The best place to start is American Express Travel. You’ll find all kinds of ideas on places to go and things to do, often at specially negotiated rates. Imagine how much cashback a two-week family holiday in the Maldives would get you.

Settle your account in full. Maximise your cashback.

Setting up a Direct Debit to pay your Card account in full every month isn’t just convenient. It’s also another way to make the most of your cashback.

Your minimum payment due at the end of each month may be up to 2% or £25 (whichever is higher) – check your statement to confirm your minimum due. But you could also choose to pay your balance in full. By paying your entire balance automatically every month (instead of just part of it) you’ll avoid paying interest – so you can hang on to more of your cashback.

Get an additional £25 cashback

Refer your friends to take out an American Express Card and earn a bonus £25 cashback if they are approved. You could earn up to £125 cashback every year just by referring your friends.3
