Maximiles Credit Card review April 2019

Maximiles Mastercard
Maximiles Mastercard

Earn more Maximiles points and get your rewards faster with this credit card.

Maximiles is an online rewards programme which you earn loyalty points for by completing online surveys and shopping at a wide range of retailers. You can then redeem them for a selection of rewards, from electronics to beauty products.

If you’re a bit of a (digital) shopaholic, this credit card can offer you monthly credit and a big boost to your Maximiles point balance, without any annual fee.

The introductory 0% for 3 months reverting to 17.9% on purchases makes shopping even more appealing, but don’t forget to clear your balance before the 0% period is over, as it will then start to accrue interest at the card’s standard rate.

However, even at that point you’ll be able to enjoy some flexibility – up to 50 interest-free days for each billing cycle, provided you pay off your bill in full every month.

If you’re considering transferring the balance you have on another credit card to this one, be aware there’s a balance transfer fee of 5% (min. £5). You won’t be charged any interest on your balance for the first 9 months.

As this card is on the Mastercard network, it’s accepted in more than 40 million locations worldwide. You’ll also be able to enjoy access to Priceless Cities experiences.

Repayment options

When it comes to repayments, you can make manual repayments online or over the phone (0371 376 9214), or alternatively set up a direct debit. A direct debit is a great idea because it protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee or losing any promotional rates as a result. You can arrange a direct debit for repayments when you apply for the credit card. The table below shows the options available.

Choose from the following direct debit options for your monthly repayments:
Minimum amount Fixed amount Fixed percentage Full amount
