UK-based Halifax and ipoints have teamed up to launch a credit card that is the
first internet credit card that allows cardholders to earn points towards free
rewards, and puts ipoints
head-to-head with the likes of NatWest/Airmiles and Barclaycard credit cards.
Cardholders will earn ipoints whenever they shop, both online and offline at 19
million establishments worldwide. The ability to earn ipoints
with all credit card spend, combined with earning ipoints with more than 50
participating companies, makes the ipoints rewards programme
the fastest way to earn free rewards.
The VISA card offers – competitive rates – with a low introductory rate of 3.9%
APR fixed for the first 5 months, a competitive 17.9% APR on
purchases, internet shopping guarantee, online applications and statements.
Customers who apply online will also benefit from the 100
ipoints being issued on application & activation of the card as well as all
It is the ability to earn free rewards & the breadth of the ipoints rewards
catalogue that sets it apart it covers over 200,000 different free
rewards from CDs, DVDs, TVs to flights to 27 countries around the world. With
this powerful combination, ipoints expect the ipoints credit
card to be one of the top three Internet credit cards within the year.
Speaking about the card Geraldine Tosh, Marketing Director of ipoints said “We
are pleased to be able to offer our customers the chance to
add to their reward points every time they use the new card. They won’t have to
be using on-line services exclusively to earn more points,
they can earn ipoints wherever they are shopping. This is the start of a new
trend – from Clicks to Bricks as we offer customers the chance to
use a credit card to build up ipoints from anywhere on the High Street or
anywhere in the world. It’s the perfect match of on-line convenience
coupled with an easy way to build up your ipoints when shopping on and offline.
This means that you can make fullest use of the Internet to
exactly fit with your lifestyle and purchasing pattern.”
