    I know this has been covered before, however I can't find it. Just regarding the MasterCard one click; it is a better rate than Paypal obviously and I want to use my points to pay for groceries. Does anybody know if the MC can be used to pay for say a Sainsburys online shop?
    Many thanks.

    I estimate this would make about 10p more then just checking out with paypal.....

    Paypay - 0.625 SB per 1p
    This - 0.72SB per 1p

    guess it adds up in the end.

    Sent them one card to test it out and then sent them another 3 codes on monday. Been paid for all of them so far.

    Apart from the time it takes, you have paid them 2.72 to turn 20 Amazon into 17.28 cash - just use the Amazon vouchers at Amazon - at some stage individual items are as cheap (or cheaper) as elsewhere and even if they were 15 % more expensive that still represent better value than turning the vouchers into cash.

    That's the least worst if you need the cash but you still pay nearly 13% more for 5 Mastercard than you do for Amazon or M&S (the 10 cards are even worse at over 16% more expensive but still much better than Paypal which cost 29% more).

    To get 5 PayPal is 800SB. Instead, to get a virtual Mastercard is 700SB. Paying it to yourself from another email account using PayPal means that you end up with 4.63. The difference between 5/800 vs 4.63/700 is negligible. So the conclusion for me is that it makes sense to do the latter as it obviously takes less effort to gather 700SB than 800SB and you'll end up with more transactions quicker.
