Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

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

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 just tried unsuccessfully to redeem the £10 credit against an order sold and delivered by amazon so it must be related only to this amazon moments whatever it is.

  • David Cooper says:

    I gave an order using this promotion page and didn’t receive the £10 credit.
    So I just requested Amazon call back. I explained about the offer and after quick check Amazon agreed to give me a £10 credit. Simples

  • HarryB. says:

    It took 40 minutes of my time and chatting with 2 different operators that insisted that I couldn’t get it without having received an email or notification about it even though that’s not part of their terms & conditions. Amazon loves being nonsensical.

    • PT_BLOKE says:

      Same here… they clearly got the wording wrong, and they went about how it would only for people who would get the email, but there is nothing there that restricts eligibility. Just a botched ad really, but hey, after 30min and 2 operators, I got the hardest £10 of my life lol

  • Michael says:

    Didn’t get the £10 credit after purchase. 40 Mins later on live chat basically got told to Foxtrot oscar by Amazon when asked and just got told you’re not eligible because you didnt receive an email with the credit. Annoyingly I think I had seen this offer on the Barclaycard site/Amazon previously but no luck lmao
