We’ve reviewed the Partnership Card recently and believe it’s the right time to update the way we reward your shopping. You’ll now enjoy new earn rates for shopping in John Lewis, Waitrose and everywhere that accepts Mastercard.

We’ll still treat you to £5 in gift vouchers for every 500 points you earn, and we’ll continue to send you your rewards three times a year.


The points you earn for shopping at John Lewis and Waitrose have increased by 25%. This means a £4 purchase will earn you 5 points, instead of 4 points. This applies to all Partnership Card purchases that currently earn you 1 point for every £1 spent.

Whether you’re doing your weekly food shop at Waitrose, updating your home and wardrobe with John Lewis or buying our travel money, every purchase will earn you even more points.


We’ve also updated the points rates for all other purchases using your Partnership Card. So when you’re shopping anywhere else that accepts Mastercard, a £4 purchase will earn you 1 point (this would currently earn you 2 points).

See our updated Reward Programme Rules and further details about earning points at John Lewis and Waitrose.
