Perfect thread title for an email I just received, that I first thought was a spammy hoax!

But turns out that it's true!

I did wonder why my First Direct card went from VISA to Mastercard, this might explain it.

I got £20 for changing my card. I did think it was spam at first.

Why does anyone use anything other than an Amazon card?

You actually get money back if you use one of those.

Get more back with Amex I think... (If not, very happy to learn more...)

Because I really don't want to give Amazon more than I need to.
