Default Asda Card Points

Hello

I'm looking at getting a new reward credit card and have been trying to do some research myself.

I do most of my supermarket shopping in Asda and therefore have been looking at their Reward Card.

The problem is I know you can earn points towards vouchers in November each year but I can't seem to find how many points you earn per you spend or how much in vouchers these equate too.

Can anyone help out?

Thanks

Marcus

Hi,
I have got the ASDA everday credit card which i no longer use due to them cutting the discount on petrol from 2p to 1p but anyway im sure the rewards system is the same on this card as the new reward card that they offer, for every 4 you spend you get 1 point and 1 point = 1p. The vouchers that they give in november are in multiples of 50p so if you have 49 points for instance you get nothing and they don't carry the points forward.

So in order to get 50p you need to spend 200.

I'm pretty sure that the system is still the same, but you are probably best double checking.

Hope this helps
Rob

EDIT: Just looked into this for you, the new reward card is slightly different from the one that i have got for purchases in ASDA you earn 2 points for every 4 and outside of ASDA you get 1 point for every 4 so spend 200 in ASDA get 1 in vouchers and 200 outside get 0.50p.

Rob

Default Asda Reward Card...just checked

Thanks Rob i have done a bit of research myself and just got off the phone from ASDA (well the indian call centre that is owned by ASDA)

The new reward card that they offer, Normaly for every 4 you spend you get 1 point and 1 point = 1p. =0.25%

Quadruple points are earned for the first 3 months and every December when you shop at ASDA so 4 = 4p = 1%

Double points are earned everywhere else you use your card for the first 3 months and each and every time you shop at ASDA. so 4 = 2p = 0.5%And youll earn single points every time you use your card outside of Asda.

So in order to get 50p you need to spend 200.

Dont forget this isnt a normal "reward" card like Tesco club points or Nectar it is a credit card and In my view using a normal 1% cashback credit card for all your purchases will be financially more beneficial.

1 point for every 4 spent is ridiculous. Not carrying balances forward to next statement doesn't seem fair. Although, ASDA is much cheaper than other supermarkets so there would be no point in visiting, say, Sainsbury's or Tesco to collect their generous looking point scheme.

Collect cashback instead, you can spend it anywhere - full list of cards on the stoozing site. Egg Money card has been relaunched but with a £1 per month fee, so you need to spend more than £1,200 a year to cover the cost. With a maximum of £200 per year, a profit of £188 can still be had for new customers.

I agree. Try and apply for a cashback CC and put all your spending on it (expect purchases that incur a charge). I didn't realise Egg started charging. Thanks for the information.
Good luck.

Who knows! maybe it was true 18 months ago when the post you were commenting on was originally posted.

In terms of shopping if I shop via Mysupermarket (which I presume you do as you say so conclusively that your shopping is cheaper) with store specific offers at Tesco it always works out cheaper than the comparison with Asda/Sainsbury, similarly the same when I shop at Asda/Sainaburys (it works out cheaper).

But on average my weekly spend is lower on the 'trolley' from Asda.

In terms of their own brands making you feel ill, had a friend who bought a chicken from Sainsburys, when they cut it open it was green, you can get dodgy food that has been incorrectly stored from any supermarket.
