How the Vitality healthy cashback booster works
You can earn Vitality cashback booster on the first £1,000 of purchases per month. Vitality cashback booster will be paid once a year, in the thirteenth month after the Vitality American Express Credit Card anniversary date. This will be paid direct to the Card Account.
Each month's cashback booster rate is based on the activity points earned two months prior. So you won't earn Vitality cashback booster until the start of the third calendar month after you activate the benefit with Vitality. You can earn Vitality cashback booster on the first £1000 of purchases each month. You'll earn no cashback booster on purchases under £4, when your rate is 0.25%.
Get American Express® cashback on purchases, too
