Is using credit card perks like pc points allowable in Islam? Or is it a form of riba? We don’t pay or accrue interest but we do get points we use for groceries. Same with gas credit cards. I use a petro card to save 2 cents a litre and accrue points that is used for car washes or to buy money saving gas cards. Is this allowable?
We thank you for contacting Mathābah for your query, and commend the concern you show towards yearning to understand Islamicaly appropriate transactions.
