    Opening a Amazon Classic Mastercard credit card for the 20 reward 8th May 18 at 10:48 AM
    I'm wondering whether it would be worth opening an Amazon Classic Mastercard credit card just for the 20 reward? I don't need the card so I wouldn't use it at all. Are there any drawbacks to this?

    Thats the banks own scoring system based on the data on ones files.

    Banks and lenders etc do not see the numbers generated by the CRAs that the public see (and should ignore).

    I have just applied for this card, not just for the 20 but also the 1.5% effective cash back on Amazon purchases (as a Prime member). Seems pretty good to me, certainly worth a search on my credit file.
    Sorry just realised that the thread is about the Classic credit builder card.

    Hard as it is to say now.. I look forward to a United States of Europe, in which the barriers between the nations will be greatly minimised and unrestricted travel will be possible.
