Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Spend £10 at Amazon on your Barclaycard and get £10 back

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Amazon has launched a special promotion for Barclaycard holders – which presumably now includes holders of the new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards.

It’s a simple deal. Spend £10 on your Barclaycard credit card at Amazon between yesterday and 30th September and you will receive a £10 Amazon promotional credit.

Full details are on this page of the Amazon website. The rules imply that you must start your shopping via the ‘Shop Now’ button on that page.

Amazon £10 Barclaycard offer

The rules appear simple enough. You have until 30th September to make your qualifying purchase on amazon.co.uk and until 30th October to use your £10 Amazon promotional credit.

There is no minimum spend required to use the £10 credit but it can only be used for products sold directly by Amazon and not third party sellers. Gift vouchers etc are also excluded.

The rules for qualifying Barclaycards are:

“An eligible Barclaycard is a personal Barclaycard with a billing address in the United Kingdom (excluding the Channel Islands and Isle of Man). Barclaycard Business card and Corporate Barclaycard are not eligible Barclaycard for this promotion.”

The only slightly confusing line is:

“Customers must land on the Barclaycard promotional landing page prior to making a qualifying purchase.”

There could be some hidden small print in this offer, of course. However, it costs you nothing to ensure that you use your Barclaycard Avios Mastercard on your next Amazon purchase of £10+.

I have no idea what happens if you use one of the old Hilton Honors credit cards ….. (EDIT: the comments say that it is working OK).

The offer landing page is here.

    “I have no idea what happens if you use one of the old Hilton Honors credit cards …..” well, since they’re so keen to include them as part of their existing credit card holder definition for the purposes of applying for the Avios cards, this is the least they could do…(of course the least they could do is nothing, but anyway).

  • Daniel says:

    You’re most welcome Rob, keep up the ace blog!

  • JMS says:

    Why “ I have no idea what happens if you use one of the old Hilton Honors credit cards …..”?

    Surely, any Barclaycard issued card used will satisfy conditions of this offer – there are more than just the two mentioned. It doesn’t specify it has to be the Avios one.

  • Jake Jones says:

    Maybe you could check with BC if it does include us, before posting? Following on, the BC Rewards program will only accept a Visa number.??

    • Andrew J says:

      Indeed – Barclaycard rewards is not open to Avios Barclaycard members. My rewards access was cancelled when I converted my old platinum card.

    • patrick says:

      I found out for myself with little difficulty.

  • Ready2go says:

    Hilton works, I have an email to say Ive got the credit after a purchase last night, I believe the credit is applied at the item is dispatched… however reading comments elsewhere and mention of a ‘moments’ page makes it sound like spending it could be challenging!

  • Chris says:

    This doesn’t work for most people unfortunately. Seems you need to be able to see the banner for the offer on your app. Tried it yesterday, I did manage to get CS to add it though.

    • Andrew J says:

      So it won’t work if we just click on the link before shopping as Rob suggested?

      • Chris says:

        Check the app first, see if you have the banner in-app. Seems CS are saying you need to have received an email even though that isn’t in the Terms and Cons. I’d suggest checking the HUKD post on it, fair bit of feedback on there.

    • Andrew. says:

      Yesterday I logged into Amazon on my office desktop. Carefully checked the link on the forums and clicked through. It took me to the Barclaycard/Amazon landing page, I bought the items I needed.

      Later in the afternoon I got the confirmation of the offer being triggered.

  • Richmond_Surrey says:

    I used Hilton card for purchase, will see if it works. Used landing page, not application.

  • Ian says:

    I know there’s a cost of living crisis but I really can’t see myself taking the time and trouble of contacting Barclaycard’s customer service to save myself £10.

    • Rui N. says:

      Why on Earth would you need to contact Barclays for this? Even if it doesn’t work, at most you’d contact Amazon.
