Can you use the BT reward card to make purchases online, specifically Amazon?
For instance, could I convert my reward card balance to Amazon credit by using it to buy an Amazon gift voucher, then applying that voucher to my own account? Or is that something you're not really supposed to do?
It would be nice to be able to put the balance toward a larger purchase.

'Unlike reward vouchers, the BT Reward Card is a chip and PIN MasterCard pre-loaded with money that you use just like a debit card. That means you can spend it anywhere MasterCard is accepted either online or, if you're a traditionalist, in highstreet shops both in the UK and abroad.'

I am having a huge issue with The reward card and Amazon. As I currently understand it when purchasing something from Amazon, they, Amazon. preauthorise the amount on the card to make sure it’s valid.......Purecard see this preauthorisation as a purchase and debit the amount to the card. When Amazon do actually charge the card on dispatch of the goods Purecard decline it as it take the balance above the loaded value - its a prefect storm for me at the moment.
Amazon state they have only asked for the amount to be set aside.
Purecard tell me only refunds can come from the retailer
I have £76.95 in cyberspace at the moment....and I don’t feel very rewarded !
The £1 added for a new card is visible, but they did the same with my first purchase, it’s blocked the card until it all clicks back into place. As I said I have £76.95 in cyber space with both purecard and Amazon blaming each other - Purecard are totally inept at recognising what is a preauthorisation and what is a sale.
I liked the idea of buying Amazon credit though, i have successfully bought credit with the card. Still fighting with purecard to get the £1 back though so not totally clear yet.
