Capital On Tap finally announced the improvements to its two cashback or Avios-earning payment cards yesterday.
New applicants have been receiving the new cards for a couple of weeks now, but the official announcement and website switch had been delayed. To avoid confusion, we didn’t mention it until now.
I will do a full article for Friday. However, to summarise:
the two existing cards will be merged into one, called Business Rewards, retaining the best of both products
this is good news for holders of the £99 card, previously called Capital Club, who will now earn 1p of cashback or 1 Avios per £1 spent (currently 0.5p or 0.5 Avios)
this is good news for holders of the £199 / £249 card, previously called On Tap Club, who will see the fee reduced to £99
The sign-up bonus will be £100 cashback or 10,000 Avios (10,500 if you use our code below) for spending £5,000 in three months.
This makes the card VERY attractive to anyone with a small business of any sort:
your £99 annual fee in Year 1 is fully covered by the 10,500 Avios earned
if you take Avios instead of cashback, you will have the market-leading Avios earning rate on a Visa or Mastercard of 1 Avios per £1 spent
You can continue to get an additional £5 cashback or 500 Avios as a sign-up bonus (taking your total bonus to £105 or 10,500 Avios) by using promo code headforpoints when you apply. The sign-up page is here.
The website was due to update overnight with details of the new card.
A full article will follow very soon. We will also look at how the Capital On Tap Business Rewards card, at £99, compares with the £210 British Airways American Express Accelerating Business (BA Business) card.
You can apply for the Capital On Tap card here – don’t forget the headforpoints promo code.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (January 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses.
There are special sign-up bonuses on both of the BA American Express cards until 28th February 2022. The bonus on the free card is doubled to 10,000 Avios and the bonus on the Premium Plus card is increased from 25,000 Avios to a huge 40,000 Avios.
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points, such as:
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 30,000 Avios.
30,000 Avios is a special offer which runs to 4th February 2022.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 45,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
45,000 Avios is a special offer which runs to 28th February 2022.
