Here is all you need to know about getting started with your new Preferred Rewards Gold Card. You'll find helpful advice about online Card activation, managing your Account online and shopping confidently with your Card.

With your Gold Credit Card, you automatically earn points on Card purchases, which we call Membership Rewards points1. This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ every time you spend on your Card. There are no limits to how many points you can earn and they never expire. The way we see it, you’ve earned them, so you should be able to use them however you want and get as much enjoyment out of these points as possible. Your rewards, your way. Enjoy!



Share your benefits
Share the benefits by applying for Supplementary Cards for your family or friends. You'll earn points on your Account as they spend, and they can enjoy many of the same great Card benefits and protections that you do. The first additional Supplementary Card comes at no extra cost. £45 thereafter.
