What do Amazon credit cards offer? 

Amazon currently offers two credit cards issued by New Day Ltd: the Platinum Mastercard, which is a reward credit card, and the Classic Mastercard, which is a credit-builder card.

The Amazon Platinum Mastercard allows you to collect 1.5 Amazon Reward Points (or three if you're a Prime member) for every £2 spent at Amazon, and 0.5 Amazon Reward Points for every £2 spent elsewhere. For every 1,000 points you earn, you'll get a £10 Amazon gift card. The representative APR is 21.9% (variable), credit is subject to status and terms apply.

The Amazon Classic Mastercard is designed to help build your credit rating and comes with a representative APR of 29.9% (variable). If you make at least one transaction a month, make repayments on time and stay within your credit limit for 12 months, you'll be upgraded to the Amazon Platinum Mastercard. Credit is subject to status and terms apply.

How we calculate Amazon's customer score and ratings

We pick credit cards to feature in Which? brand reviews based on the most popular credit card brands searched for online. 

Customer scores are based on an online survey of the public conducted in May 2021, which received 4,011 responses. Participants could provide answers on up to two credit cards. 

This year’s customer score analysis is based on a sample size of 5,744 credit card experiences in total, and represents overall satisfaction as well as the likelihood to recommend the provider to a friend.

Star ratings for each category are calculated independently of the customer score.

We carry out these surveys annually and update our review pages accordingly. Providers must receive a minimum sample size of 50 respondents to be included in our customer satisfaction tables.
