Thank you from Coutts
An extremely rewarding relationship
THANK YOU FROM COUTTS is our exclusive reward programme that offers a range of luxurious gifts and experiences to clients who have a Silk Charge Card or Silk Credit Card.
You earn ‘Coutts Crowns’ – which you can redeem for luxury items and experiences – when you buy things using your Silk Charge Card, Silk Credit Card or Coutts Debit Card. So whether you’re buying a car or a coffee, it all goes towards your tally. And the more business you do with us, the faster you can earn Crowns.
You gain Crowns when you buy goods and services. You don’t gain Crowns for certain financial transactions such as withdrawing cash, buying foreign currency or travellers cheques, investment deposits, tax payments or repayment of debt. See full terms and conditions for details.
You can keep up to date with the number of Crowns you have and what you can get with them quickly and easily through Coutts Online, Coutts Mobile or by calling Coutts 24. And you can redeem them any time over the course of the year, spending as many as you like. So you could use a few at a time for specific treats or exchange them all at once for something really special if you have enough of them.
All Coutts personal clients aged 18 and over are automatically enrolled in the scheme – no form filling required. All you need to do is get either a Silk Charge Card or Silk Credit Card – you won’t be able to earn Crowns without one. To get either a Silk Charge Card or Silk Credit Card, speak to your private banker or call Coutts 24.
Flexible and Secure
Created to simplify the complexities of modern life, Silk offers the features you would expect to ensure that it is as secure as it is connected.
Silk clients may request additional cards for their account with added flexibility of determining the level of privileges and benefits for each Silk cardholder. Clients can allocate an individual spending limit for each cardholder within their account, with spend itemised for each cardholder on a single, monthly statement which is sent to the primary cardholder.
Over 18s only.
For added security and peace of mind, Coutts Online Verification ensures that only the cardholder is permitted to transact online.
We have also introduced additional layers of security for your Coutts cards that will make online shopping less obtrusive but no less safe. Our new service is easier to use as there is no need to register your card or remember a password.
