    they turned me down.

    have to say im amazed they're withdrawing the card.

    if theyd altered the conditions & reduced / cancelled the cashback then that'd be fairly usual, but to gather customers and then get rid of them!?

    I was gutted about this. I've made £15 or £20 a month in cashback since this card was introduced. Going to have to scour for the best cashback replacement card come November.

    If you find a good one, let us all know.
    I'm gonna miss this card.

    I presume they will knock the cashback total off the last statement.

    £211 cashback so far, I will expect another £50 - £60 between now and November.

    Ah well all good things etc.

    The one I'm looking at as a replacement at the moment is the Barclaycard Platinum. Offers 2% cashback on supermarkets and petrol, 0.5% elsewhere. The 2% is capped at £15 per month (IE a £750 monthly spend on petrol/food) which should be plenty.

    There are 3% cards out there but only for an introductory period of 3 months or so, I'm not too interested in switching cards that regularly, I'd really just like a consistent cash back card for as long as is possible so the 2% Barclaycard rate looks good.

    Skycard pays 2% if you choose to use it's points as free bets on SkyBet. Been using it for about a year now.

    Don't forget the Abbey card now pays 5% cashback in supermarkets (but for a limited period only)!
