The promise of a cash reward is now the third most important feature that consumers look for in a credit card(2), as they attempt to get the most from their money in today’s economic climate.

What is a cash back credit card?

A cash back credit card is similar to other types of credit card that offer reward schemes but, instead of points or air miles, it gives the customer a reward that is based on the amount they spend on the card.

The cash back is usually accrued on a monthly basis and paid into the holder's account either monthly or annually. The Asda Money Credit Card accrues monthly cash back and offers 1% cashback on Asda shopping and Asda petrol, and 0.5% when the card is used elsewhere.

What should I be aware of when taking out a cashback credit card?

Some cash back credit cards have limits on the amount of cashback you can receive, such as putting a cap on the cash back you can generate on your monthly spending.

In some cases credit card providers may also offer a higher rate of cashback for a fixed amount of time, and then reduce this rate incrementally after this period.

Some reward schemes, including cash back, may be withdrawn if you are late or fail to make the minimum monthly payment.

Making the most of your cash back credit card

As well as offering a fixed rate of cashback on general spending, some credit card providers will also offer cashback on particular purchases such as food or travel.

As a result it is important to asses which cashback cards offer the best rewards for your needs.

It is also important to look at the additional features offered by your cash back credit card, such as balance transfer offers and a competitive annual percentage rate (APR).

The Asda Money Credit Card offers unlimited cashback on your spending, no matter where you use your card.
