    You're right. It used to get referenced in the credit card cashback / reward section, but it's since been rmoved. I *don't think* their offering has changed. It continues to offer bonus vouchers upon signup and an equivalent 0.5% cashback in the form of JL / Waitrose vouchers.
    Whilst my posts do not constitute financial advice, I am always, without fail, 100% right!

    1% on spending in John Lewis/Waitrose, 0.5% on spending elsewhere. Well, that's what I get on mine, anyway.

    The rating on their card app on google play is 1.9 - might be a factor in your decision

    The app was useless but has been updated and is now pretty good, well worth checking out.

    Hope the rest of the HSBC stable get a similar update.

    We have a Partnership Card and by and large I've been quite pleased with it.

    Their app and online banking was clunky, to say the least, but they have updated the app and apart from a few initial teething troubles, it seems to work fairly seamlessly (you can even log in on a finger print now! )

    However, we do shop in Waitrose and John Lewis a fair bit, so have benefited from the 1% reward on the card. I only use it for that.
    It's a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known........Sydney Carton.

    JL is our 'non-AMEX UK card' now. Said I wasn't going to have 3 of them but the 0.5% equivalent cashback is better than our Nationwide one we use for overseas, and as we have a JL and Waitrose a few mins walk away, interested to see what other perks may pop up.

    That said, the wife was less than impressed that she couldn't get her card immediately in store, as they wanted her to prove her income (too many zeros on it or some such nonsense )

    We use our local waitrose a fair bit and I use my JL partnership card for that. Gives me a nice lot of vouchers every now and again. I don't use the app though as I wasn't aware they had one. I will locate that now.

    It's not bad, but I can get 1.25% from Amex, so apart from getting foreign currency, I never use the partnership card in JL or Waitrose. Which might be seen as a little ironic...
