The banking giant has today launched Santander Boosts – its latest ‘personalised’ retail scheme offering cashback, vouchers and discounts to card holders.

Santander Boosts is the bank’s latest scheme for debit and credit card holders who can earn discounts, special offers, and cashback tailored to their spending habits.

It also gives vouchers and rewards on products and services, as well as free gifts and entry into prize draws.

Customers can join the scheme online or via mobile banking. As part of the launch, it’s holding a prize draw for customers who sign up in November, giving customers the chance to win:

  • 1 x £2,500 towards everyday spend
  • 5 x £500 eGift cards to spend towards groceries
  • 2,000 x free Greggs breakfasts
  • 2,000 x free Costa coffee

It comes after Santander confirmed to YourMoney.com that it was axing Retailer Offers, allowing customers to earn up to 15% cashback when spending at a host of brands.

Customers who sign up will need to set up a Santander Boosts account by submitting name and address details, email address and you’ll need to set up a password. Then select your interests from areas like tech & electronics, baby & kids, food & dining, health & beauty, travel and more so you get the most relevant offers for you. You’ll then need to register the Santander card you’d like to receive cashback.

There’s no limit to how many offers customers can redeem or activate. However, some individual offers e.g., instant wins/giveaways, may have a limit on the number of redemptions but this will be stated in the offer terms & conditions.

‘Boosts provides a range of offers, cashback and vouchers’

A Santander spokesperson, said: “We are delighted to launch Santander Boosts, which provides customers with a wide range of offers, cashback and vouchers from hundreds of online and high street retailers, tailored to customers’ individual interests and hobbies.

“We know cashback and rewards are a top priority for consumers to help with their day-to-day finances, so we’re pleased to be able to give customers a little boost when they bank with us. Santander Boosts is free and is available to all personal debit and credit card customers aged 18 and over..”

Santander Boosts is not available if you only have a Cahoot, business banking, corporate banking card or a cash card.
