RBS credit card points
All you need to know about the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) MyRewards scheme, including how to earn points on your credit card, where to redeem and other benefits.
RBS runs a scheme called MyRewards through its rewards current accounts and rewards credit cards. You can collect points which can be redeemed for cash back, vouchers or gift cards for partner retailers or charitable donations. This scheme was formerly known as Cashback Plus.
Five rewards points are worth £5.
How do you earn RBS MyRewards?
You can earn 1% in reward points on your supermarket shopping and on shopping at RBS’s partner retailers (currently including Caffe Nero, Ernest Jones, ATG Tickets, H. Samuel or Jamie’s Italian). For example, if you spend £100 on your supermarket shopping, you would earn 1 reward point, worth £1.
You’ll earn 0.5% everywhere else you use your card, including at supermarket petrol stations. For example, if you spent £50 on petrol, you would earn 0.25 reward points, worth 25p.
How do you redeem RBS MyRewards?
You can choose to redeem your MyReward points as cash back in your bank account or gift cards to spend at an eligible partner retailer.
Your points can be worth even more with the “trade up” rewards feature, offered from time to time for specific partner retailers. For example, £10 worth of MyRewards could be exchanged for a £15 voucher for a particular partner retailer.
Alternatively, you may wish to donate your points to a chosen charity.
