    We decided to Opt-in to the new Pulse card. Not heard anything since though.
    Amazon NewDay card ends on the 11th.
    Has anyone else who opted in, already received their new Pulse card?
    I haven't done anything not sure if they opt me in automatically or not. 

    I keep getting emails and text messages warning me the NewDay card is changing. 
    Read the letter they’ve sent you in your app inbox. Some people are auto signed up, some have to request the new card, and some are told they are no longer wanted as a customer. The instructions on what to do are contained in the letter.

    I opted in last week, but not expecting card yet as they said it would arrive by mid December. 
    Current card still works in the meantime and until the new card arrives and is activated. 
    Thanks.
    It was the following sentence in the letter that confuses a little.

    ”You are still able to use your Amazon Platinum Mastercard as you do today until the earlier of:
    • the date you activate your Pulse card if you chose to opt in; or • 11th November 2022.
    ” 

    I was thinking that as 11th November comes earlier, then won’t be able to use the card after that, as not getting new card till December...
    Opted in back in September btw.

    I have a weird one, I've received an email to say my latest statement is ready. I assume my final one as I've cancelled the card but I can't log in. My details don't work. I'm fairly certain that I don't owe anything on the card so I'm not overly concerned but seems odd to notify me of a statement but  not allowing me to log in to view it.

    So I've had to download the Pulse app and it's no longer letting me log in on the new day site. 

    Anyone had there points transferred?

    That's as expected as today is the 11th, the day given to use the Pulse App/OAM.

    The points question was answered earlier in this thread, they will be credited no later than end December. A bit longer to wait 🙂

    Yes the Amazon app is now dead - it directs you to download the Pulse app and log in with the same details - painless enough. No mention of the points (as expected) in the new app. Same credit limit - transactions all there. I can also access my previous Amazon statements as well.

    Well I opted-in, was forced to start using the Pulse app from yesterday. My spouse is an additional cardholder. Haven't received and no sign of the physical cards. Today - Amazon Platinum cards have stopped working. What an utter mess. No chance of getting through on Chat or phone.

    We put all our spending through this card and pay it off as soon as the statement comes out. There doesn't seem to be any other reward cards out there that a) aren't Amex or b) only reward you if you shop at a specific supermarket like M&S, Sainsbury's or Asda - we don't, we use Amazon Grocery plus most of our spend is non-supermarket stuff. Any alternatives?

    Natwest/RBS Reward Credit Card - 1% cashback at supermarkets, 0.25% elsewhere (annual fee which is waived if you hold a Reward current account, which itself will earn you an easy £3/month).
    Halifax/Lloyds Cashback Credit Card - 0.25% cashback up to £4000 pa, 0.5% above
    Barclaycard Rewards - 0.25% cashback + no FX charges
    Co-operative Members Credit Card - 1p cashback per £2 at Co-op food, 1p per £3.33 elsewhere (requires a Co-op Bank account)

    You won't get more than a few points of a % on a straight cashback product. If you spend mostly at Amazon you should look in to advantageous ways of buying Amazon gift cards.

    I’ve no card yet but I’ve linked it, through the pulse app, with Apple Pay and am just using my phone to pay with.
