Surprisingly, this is a charge card, not a credit card. But accepted new Amex Preferred Rewards Gold charge card holders get 20,000 Rewards points, worth £100 in vouchers, when they spend £2,000 in the first three months.

Need-to-knows
  • Because it's a charge card, you HAVE to pay it off each month, there's no credit facility.
  • If you don't pay it off, you'll get a £12 late fee, and a mark on your credit file.
  • This card usually has a £140 annual fee, but for now is fee-free in the first year. To avoid paying £140, diarise to cancel before year two starts.
  • You earn 1 point per £1 spent on your card. This is boosted to 2 points per £1 when spending on travel (plane fares, rail fares etc) and when spending abroad. You also earn 2 points per £1 on petrol and supermarket spending for the first year.
  • You can convert the 20,000 Membership Rewards points into £100 in gift cards for Amazon, M&S, Homebase, Boots, PC World and more (though cards available vary).
  • You can also convert points to frequent flyer or hotel scheme points and add them to your current stash. They can be converted into 10 frequent flyer programmes (including Avios and Virgin Atlantic), or five hotel reward schemes, among other things.
  • You can also use your points to pay off purchases, effectively working as cashback. However, you receive slightly less than you'd get exchanging for vouchers; 1,000 points gives £4.50 'cashback' vs £5 in vouchers.
  • Cashback: Up to 1% (plus 20,000 bonus points)
  • Paid out: Monthly
  • Max 'cashback'/year: Unlimited
  • Min spend: £2,000 for bonus | Card issuer: Amex
  • Annual fee: No fee in year 1. £140 from year 2 onwards
  • Min income: N/A

Good news! Unlike applying, which usually leaves a hard search on your credit file and can hurt your future credit worthiness, our eligibility calculator uses a soft search. We use this to find out how likely you are to be accepted. You see the soft search on your credit file, but lenders don't, so it has no credit impact. Use this calculator to home in on the card you're most likely to get.

As well as eligibility you'll get...

How this site works

We think it's important you understand the strengths and limitations of the site. We're a journalistic website and aim to provide the best MoneySaving guides, tips, tools and techniques, but can't guarantee to be perfect, so do note you use the information at your own risk and we can't accept liability if things go wrong.

  • This info does not constitute financial advice, always do your own research on top to ensure it's right for your specific circumstances and remember we focus on rates not service.
  • We don't as a general policy investigate the solvency of companies mentioned (how likely they are to go bust), but there is a risk any company can struggle and it's rarely made public until it's too late (see the Section 75 guide for protection tips).
  • We often link to other websites, but we can't be responsible for their content.
  • Always remember anyone can post on the MSE forums, so it can be very different from our opinion.
