and almost all of them have non-competitive interest rates.
Introducing cash back deals could be useful if you know that you are going to buy something costly. However, if you pay a single account debit, the resulting interest burden could cancel out any repayment saving you make. If you want to take full benefit of credit cards that provide cash back, you have to do two things:
- Use them for all your expenses (but be careful when you shop with credit cards). Failure to warrant doing so would make you better off buying a much lower interest bearing calling plan such as the Sainsbury's Bank Nectar Low Rates Credit Cards. There is only 7. 9% APR and, while there is no cash back, you get twice the nectar points on your Sainsbury's purchase, and one nectar point for every 5 pounds you spend elsewhere on your map.
However, if you have the disciplines to make cash-back cards work for you, here are the best cards at the moment: The American Express has two cards - the Platinum Cash-back and the Platinum Cash-back Everyday Cards. For the first three month both are offering 5% (max £100 cashback). Platinum cash-back cards charge 25 per year and give 1.25% cash-back at the end of the initial phase.
However if you spent more than 10,001 in one year you will receive a 2.5% instalment for one months. Platinum Everyday Cashflow Back cards offer graduated rates: The Aspire Elite Mastercard from Capital One also provides 5% back for 99 business day purchases. As soon as the launch price runs out, the ticket will offer staggered cashback: 1% on issues of up to £14,999 per annum; 2. 00% between £15,000 and £49,999; and 1. 35% over £50,000.
The 123 MasterCard from Santander has no introduction phase. Instead, it provides different cash-back quotes according to what you buy. In addition, you are fortunate enough to find cards with more than 0.5% cash back. National Building Society Select Credit Cards 0. 5 percent cash back and 0 percent interest on buys for 15 mths.
The Asda Money Credit Cards offers 1% on Asda buys and 0.5% elsewhere. The credit cards of the members of the cooperative bank provide 1% for expenses in the grocery stores of the cooperative and 0.5% elsewhere. The Bank of Ireland UK Moneyback MasterCard and the Moneyback Gold MasterCard each provide 0.5% cashback for expenses up to £15,000 per annum.
