'Jingle' All The Way With My Travel Cash
Britons could collectively pocket just under £9m this Christmas in cashback rewards
Britons who travel abroad or visit overseas websites for their Christmas shopping needs could pocket an accumulative £8.6m as my Travel Cash – the prepaid MasterCard® currency card – gives its customers the gift of cashback.
my Travel Cash recently added a fantastic reward for all customers – 1% unlimited cashback on everything purchased, paid directly to the prepaid card account the following month after it has been used.
Research from Santander shows that the average Briton will spend £359 on Christmas presents, with 4.2 million spending 23% of their budget abroad and a further 4.2 million spending 35% of their Christmas budget on overseas websites[i] – collectively amounting to £8.6m in cashback rewards should they all use a my Travel Cash currency card.[ii]
As purchases made in cards' currency are also free[iii], shopaholics can feel confident when playing Santa for their loved ones this Christmas. The cashback earned is only limited by how much the cardholder spends – no hidden tricks or complicated rules just great value, commission-free rewards, back on the card in time for mid-term break in the sun.
Myles Stephenson, CEO my Travel Cash, comments:
"More and more people are heading abroad to European Christmas markets or further afield to New York or L.A. There is also a large percentage of the population who purchase from overseas websites.
"For both types of customers, my Travel Cash not only offers a competitive exchange rate but we go that bit further to ensure our customers are rewarded. We introduced the 1% cashback this summer and it is now a permanent feature on our cards. Additionally, we have also scrapped ATM withdrawal fees on all three of our cards[iv], and to top it off, our customers aren't charged any commission either."
my Travel Cash (www.mytravelcash.com) offers three prepaid MasterCard cards in Multi-Currency (Sterling), Euros and US Dollars.
