As soon as your available Rewards balance is the equivalent of £5 or more, you can convert your Rewards to money, which you can either transfer into your Royal Bank of Scotland current account or use towards reducing your Reward credit card balance. Rewards can also be exchanged for gift cards at selected retailers or converted to money and donated to participating charities.

Payments to billing organisations but which are for other services such as maintenance, repairs or insurance will not earn Rewards.
