Travellers can earn AA Reward points when they take out one of two new prepaid Mastercards with the Automobile Association.
Launched in partnership with e-money solutions provider Tuxedo, the AA Spend and Earn Mastercard Prepaid Card, and the AA Travel Euro Currency Mastercard Prepaid Card both offer points in a similar way to the organisation’s existing AA Credit Card. Members earn one point per £1 spent on motoring products, one point per £2 spent on other goods, and double points for AA members.
The Euro card in particular may be of interest to travellers, as there is no charge for use at retail outlets or ATMs when you withdraw €50 or more. The card itself costs €9.95 to purchase, but this is refunded after the first £100 has been loaded on to the card. The currency is converted at the point of load – customers can check the daily exchange rate for the card by clicking here.
Note that there are charges for account services including additional and replacement cards, cash withdrawals under £50/€50, and credit card, Post Office and PayPoint transfers. For a full list of fees click here.
