Capital on Tap Avios earning credit card

ENDS SUNDAY: Got a Limited Company? Get points worth 30,000 Avios!

If you have a limited company or LLP, we are running an exclusive special offer with Capital on Tap and its small business Visa credit card.

You MUST apply by Sunday night.

This is a hugely powerful card. You earn points worth 1 Avios or 1p of cashback for every £1 you spend and it comes with no FX fees and no ATM fees.

Until Sunday 12th May, you will receive 10,000 points (worth 10,000 Avios or £100) for making your first purchase, and a further 20,000 points (worth 20,000 Avios or £200) if you spend £20,000 within three months.

This means you will receive a total bonus of 30,000 points (worth 30,000 Avios or £300) if you hit the £20,000 spend target. You will also receive your standard ‘1 point per £1’ as well.

Even if you can’t spend £20,000 within three months, you still qualify for 10,000 bonus points for making just one purchase.

There is an annual fee of £99.

You can find out more in this article. You must apply via this exclusive HfP link to get the bonus.
