How does cashback work?

Cashback credit cards offer you the opportunity to earn cashback when you use your card on eligible purchases.

Depending on your card’s terms, you can earn a percentage of cashback on the amount you have spent. As long as you follow the golden rule and you do not go over your credit limit and you repay your debts in full each month, you should be able to earn the full cashback amount.
