UPDATE – OCTOBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly directory of the top UK travel credit card offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Credit Card Offers’ menu above. Thank you.
I’m delighted to launch an exclusive Head for Points sign-up bonus on the Capital on Tap Business Rewards Visa Credit Card.
This is the biggest exclusive credit card deal we have ever offered.
Here’s the one sentence summary:
Apply now and you will receive a sign-up bonus of 29,900 Capital on Tap points (worth 29,900 Avios or £299) as a HfP reader, for an annual fee of just £99.
You receive 9,900 points after your first transaction – offsetting the annual fee – and a further 20,000 points when you spend £5,000 within three months of sign-up.
You can apply here (and only here – don’t use the standard Capital on Tap home page).
Do you qualify for this offer?
This offer is limited to readers who have a business which is run through a limited company or LLP.
At present, sole traders and regular partnerships cannot apply unfortunately.
How to apply for the Capital On Tap Business Rewards Visa
This special offer is exclusive to Head for Points readers.
You MUST apply via this special link. Applications made via the standard Capital on Tap home page will not receive the extra bonus.
The closing date is 20th May 2021.
What is special about the Capital on Tap Business Rewards Visa card?
Apart from the huge sign-up bonus of 29,900 points (= 29,900 Avios or £299 cashback), there are four things about this card which make it stand out:
it is the ONLY Visa or Mastercard which allows a business to earn Avios
it is the only Avios-earning credit card, personal or business, which does not charge foreign exchange fees when used abroad
it is the only UK Avios partner which has virtually instantaneous transfers of points. They reach your British Airways Executive Club account as soon as you instigate a transfer from your Capital on Tap account.
if you decide you don’t want any more Avios at any time, Capital on Tap will let you cash in your non-transferred points for 1p per point of real money
As you can see, it is an impressive package.
The annual fee for the card is just £99, which is tax deductible.
Interest rate information: Your interest rate is based on your business profile and can be as low as 9.9% APR. The standard interest rate for marketing purposes is 39.9% APR.
What is the exclusive Head for Points sign-up offer?
Between 20th April and 20th May, you will receive 29,900 Capital on Tap points (transferable into £299 of cashback or 29,900 Avios) when you sign up.
The bonus will arrive in two parts:
9,900 points will arrive soon after you have made your first transaction, which effectively covers your tax deductible £99 annual fee straight away
20,000 points will arrive when you spend £5,000 within three months of receiving the card
For clarity, you will keep the initial 9,900 points even if you fail to spend £5,000 to earn the additional 20,000 points bonus. It is still worth applying even if you think that £5,000 of spending within three months won’t be possible.
What do I earn on my day to day spending?
Going forward, you earn 1 Capital on Tap point per £1 you spend.
These are redeemable for 1p cashback or 1 Avios per point.
As an added benefit, this is the ONLY Avios-earning credit card which does not charge foreign exchange fees when used abroad. It is a great card to use if your business spends money outside the UK.
There is an annual fee of £99.
Who is Capital on Tap?
Whilst you may not have heard of Capital On Tap, it has provided over £2 billion of funding for over 120,000 UK businesses. The company has recently expanded into Spain and the US.
They launched their Avios-earning Business Rewards Credit Cards in 2018 and they have been very popular with SME-owning Head for Points readers ever since.
Feedback on the company has been positive. Head for Points has a dedicated point man who is able to help with any issues which readers may come across.
What other benefits do you get as a cardholder?
As well as a strong 1 point per £1 earning rate and the huge 29,900 points sign-up bonus, there are some other good benefits too:
20 free supplementary cards for your staff
a credit limit of up to £100,000
up to 56 days to pay before interest is incurred on card purchases when you repay in full
No FX fees and no UK ATM fees
account integrations with Sage, QuickBooks, Xero and more
Who can apply?
To apply, you must have a UK limited company or LLP with turnover of £24,000+.
Sole traders and partnerships are not, unfortunately, able to apply at the present time.
Applicants must not have a CCJ against themselves or their business in the past 12 months.
If you have a limited company or LLP, you should have a serious look at Capital on Tap:
for the first year, it is a no-brainer – until 20th May, you are getting 29,900 Capital On Tap points, redeemable for £299 or 29,900 Avios, as a sign-up bonus in return for an annual fee of £99
you receive 9,900 points shortly after your first transaction, which instantly covers your annual fee for the first year
you have three months to spend the £5,000 required to receive the remaining 20,000 points
the £99 annual fee is a tax deductible expense so the net cost to you will be lower
even if you have a British Airways Accelerating Business American Express, American Express Business Platinum or American Express Business Gold, it is worth getting this card to use outside the UK and at places where Amex is not accepted
You MUST apply via this special link to qualify for the 29,900 points bonus.
The closing date is 20th May 2021.
