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. Neither are currently open to new customers, but existing customers can continue to use them.
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.
Changes to your card from January 2023
In March 2022, New Day announced the partnership with Amazon will end in January 2023.
All customers will be written to by New Day later in the year and will be able to close their account, or switch to New Day's Pulse Cashback credit card.
The Pulse card pays 1% cashback for the first three months and 0.25% after this point. The maximum amount you can earn a year is £150. There is no annual fee.
New Day told us that no changes are expected to your APR or credit limit and there will be no credit checks when you transfer over.

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 2022, which received 6,201 responses. Participants could provide answers on up to two credit cards.
This year’s customer score analysis is based on a sample size of 4,694 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.
