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.
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).
