Membership Rewards® Points


Choose a Card with Membership Rewards and earn points on the things you buy every day, from your supermarket shop to your movie night in.  The points you've saved can then be used to treat yourself to almost anything you want, with a range of shopping, travel and lifestyle partners or use them to reduce your monthly statement.


You can even use your Membership Rewards points during checkout with Safekey, or Ticketmaster.


There's no limit on how many points you could earn and they never expire, so you could even save them up and make a once in a lifetime trip a reality.
