    M&S reward plus offer - 2000 bonus points 17th Jul 18 at 9:20 AM
    I've just received the M&S credit card. Does anyone know how the 2000 bonus point offer works? Maybe you've received it already.

    Read through the terms. It seems quite straightforward. it say's you must be opted in to M&S loyalty Scheme. Pretty sure I opted in when I applied for credit card.

    Should I call them and ask before making first purchase?

    How quickly/slowly were your points credited after the first purchase? Does it make a difference to how quickly/slowly the points are credited if the first purchase is made online or in store?

    Also, when does the 90 day period for the first purchase start from?. I applied on 28 April 2018. Account approved on 04 May 2018.

    Take it it starts from 04 May 2018?

    I didn't have to specifically opt in. I spent on the card and the 2000 bonus points appeared relatively quickly.

    Getting the actual 20 in vouchers, however, is glacially slow. They only convert the points into vouchers something like every three months, and if you join at the wrong time in their cycle (as I did) you could be waiting something like six months for them.

    I wasn't best pleased with this to say the least and it rather puts me off using them for actual credit (as does their shoddy online servicing).

    I received the M&S gift card beginning of September. Checked the balance and it said 100.00. All good.

    Up until last week or so I had about 2500 points showing on online banking (2000 points for credit card sign-up + around 500 points I had accumulated). Yesterday, received text message from M&S saying 'just to let you know that we've topped up your M&S gift card. Happy Shopping!'.

    Today, when I check the card balance it say's 110. Surely it should be around 125 (100 + 25). What's going on?

    Isn't the 110 for opening a current account? (100 on opening and 5 a month for 12 months)

    The 2000 bonus points is for opening a credit card and a voucher will be sent separately.

    This makes sense. M&S will probably send a voucher after converting the points total (in my case it was nearly 2700) in to pounds. So, nearly 27.

    The points total is shown on my credit card statement and also through online banking (easy to keep track).

    I believe the offer (for existing M&S Credit card customers) that was ongoing when I opened the current account was the 100 for opening account, then 10 top-up each month when you satisfy the current account conditions ( 1000 pay-in and 2x direct debits each month) offer. It was called the '220 gift card when you switch and stay' offer. This offer may have changed now.
