    I've only just joined this thread so plz excuse me if this has been discussed way down the line.
    Is there a card that will actually pay cash - except for the Amex ones which I know are not universally accepted - rather than vouchers?

    Martin's email today mentions how Jay Z and Beyonc! can get 6 months of 5% cashback with Amex Platinum cashback card. It might also be worth mentioning that if Beyonc! refers Jay Z to Amex on their 'refer a friend' scheme (just Google it), she would get another 10 back. The Amex refer a friend scheme is very generous, even more so with some of their other cards, such as BA, Amex Gold and Platinum, with the referrer getting huge numbers of points, which can be transferred to various hotel and airline rewards schemes. And they do not currently limit how many times you can re-cycle your card to get the sign up bonus each time. So long as you haven't held one for six months. So once Beyonc! has successfully referred Jay Z and got her bonus, she could cancel her card. Then in 6 months' time Jay Z refers her to Amex and she gets another, and he gets 10, while she gets the 5% cashback for another 3 months!
    With Platinum Cashback they'd both have to spend at least 3000 each a year to both get any cashback (a lot of spend). If your spend is more in blocks, consider other cards such as BA or Amex Gold which just need to hit a minimum spend in the first 3 months to get their sign up bonus - 1000 per account with BA and 2000 for Amex Gold. Get your card at the right time of year, like before buying a holiday, and you're laughing (but make sure your retailer takes Amex!)

    I know this is a late reply, but hope it might help. The reduction in the interchange fee seems to have done for cashback cards. The best rate seems to be no more than 0.5% with Santander, Nationwide, Nat West etc. The better return rates seem to be with those which earn points with hotels, airlines etc.

    Have a look at USwitch or at HeadforPoints.com for a summary.
