How your Incentive Award Card works

How to use your Incentive Award Card

Your Mastercard® Incentive Award Card is accepted at over 32 Million locations worldwide wherever the Mastercard® brand is accepted.  It's a great way of spending your incentive awards, whether you want to book a holiday, dine at your favourite restaurant, go on a shopping trip or stock up at the supermarket.

How your Incentive Award Card works

Your card is a prepaid Mastercard® card with chip and PIN.

This means you can spend up to the balance on your card, and all transactions are authorised online at the point of sale. 

Your card is personalised with your name. Your incentive provider will arrange for any awards that you’ve earned to be credited to your card. 

Activation and PIN

Your card must be activated before you can use it. Your card letter will indicate whether you’re able to do this via online activation and follow the on-screen prompts, or by our automated telephone service (in this case, you will receive a letter with an activation code by separate cover and you should simply call the activation phone number and select the ‘Card Activation’ option from the menu. You will then be asked to quote your 16 digit card number and the activation code detailed on your letter. You will be given a 4 digit PIN number. 

You are then free to use your card at any Mastercard® outlet (see below for spending restrictions). 

Please note that you should never reveal your PIN to anybody. We recommend that you record your PIN number separately from your card details. If you forget your PIN, you can obtain a reminder via My Account. If you want to change your PIN to something more memorable you can do this at any UK Bank ATM.

You can then use any other form of payment, i.e. cash/debit card/credit card to pay the remaining balance.
