"...brought to my attention “The Waterstones Card”, _‘ooh,’_ I thought, _‘another card for my collection…’_ So, I signed up. I got my card immediately after signing up, it’s not personalised with your name in anyway, just a plain card, designed to fit perfectly in your wallet/purse along with other cards, and is recognisable by the green stripes down the left hand side, and the little Waterstones “W” in the right hand corner.

Waterstones Card: Totally Worth Getting

AdvantagesQuick to accumulate points & freedom for part point payment

DisadvantagesLike any reward card, you need to spend ALOT of money to get ALOT of points!

"...all of them is the Waterstones Points Card. It's not that they are particularly generous at 3 points per £1 spent, but that each point is worth 1p. I have quite quickly accumulated a significant amount of money on my card to redeem which will come in handy for birthdays and christmas. You can use your card on the Waterstones website to earn or spend, and you have the option of part point payment, part card payment [I've yet to try this in store]. ..." Read review
