Today, I will introduce a technique that uses JCB’s “smartphone payment with JCB! 20% cashback campaign for everyone!”.
This campaign will be rewarded 20% when using JCB Card with Google Pay or Apple Pay.

What is “JCB smartphone payment! 20% cashback campaign for everyone!”

The following is a quote from the official website (https://www.jcb.co.jp/campaign/cashb20_1908.html).

  • Regardless of the time of registration, the usage amount during the period is counted.

Campaign prizes and benefits

  • The maximum amount of cash back per card is 10,000 yen. Even if one card is set for multiple devices, the maximum cash back is 10,000 yen.
  • Cash back to JCB credit card members will be displayed in minus in the “Card usage fee details” for payment made in March 2020. If there is no payment in the current month, it will be transferred to the set account.

Advantage

I will explain the advantages of this technique.

20% reduction

A high reduction rate of 20% is attractive.
The maximum amount of cash back per card is 10,000 yen, so you can use up to 50,000 yen.

Cash back limit per card is 10,000 yen

The point is “per card”.
If you have multiple credit cards issued by JCB, you can receive multiple returns.

Long period of 3 months

It is easy to use up to the upper limit for a long time.
You can also issue a new credit card from now on.

Disadvantage

Campaign participation is required

Registration is required from the following site. Please register the card from the application on the Internet.

Some cards are not eligible for JCB brand cards

This campaign is only for credit cards issued by JCB.
If you have a card on hand, you can tell if it can be registered on the campaign site.
When issuing a new one, be careful whether the JCB is the issuer.
By the way, SoraChika card is eligible.

Only for use with Apple Pay or Google Pay

Apple Pay or Google Pay can be used in many places.
However, it should be noted that regular credit card accounting is not covered.

Summary

This time, we introduced the technique of receiving a 20% reduction with the JCB card.
From October, there seems to be an additional return from the Japanese government’s cashless policy.
