Rewards for Racing (also known as Rewards4Racing) is a loyalty program that allows you to accumulate points when shopping and betting online. Then, you can cash in those points for racing rewards and upgrades.
It’s free stuff you already want, and we’re here to tell you how to get it.
Membership with Rewards for Racing allows you to get credit for the everyday purchases you make at shops like M&S and Halfords or online stores like eBay and Argos. You can also accumulate points with utility partners, entertainment venues, food delivery services, and more.
You collect points and horse racing rewards with visits to the racecourse as well. More importantly, that is also where you spend your points. Cash in those points for race day tickets, upgrades at the racecourse, and even a subscription to Racing TV, which broadcasts every race live from 61 different racecourses around the UK and Ireland.
Each time you spend money, you can earn points and use racing rewards.
A membership with Rewards for Racing is free. Just sign up with an email address on the website, and you’ll be ready to begin.
When you spend money on your O2 mobile phone, order from Dominos, or shop at places like House of Fraser and Fortnum & Mason, you accumulate membership points. The Rewards for Racing website will point you toward the 4,000+ retail partners that will help you earn points.
You can also collect points with horse racing rewards partners like Racing Post and Racing TV, as well as at 31 racecourse partners, including any of The Jockey Club’s racecourses, plus racecourse in places like Bath, York, and Newcastle.
That’s also where those points come back to benefit you. You can use your points to purchase venue tickets at each of the 31 partner racecourses. The more you spend, the greater your chance of winning Rewards for Racing giveaways, with prizes such as free tickets, team jerseys, a Cheltenham membership, and other horse racing rewards.
Along with earning rewards points when spending a day out of the races, you can also earn points when spending a day in and on your preferred horse racing betting sites.
Bet365 has been in business for more than 20 years. It’s one of the largest bookmakers in the world, and it boasts one of the most comprehensive race betting offerings in the business, including live streaming of horse racing events from across the globe.
For every £1 wagered, you receive one Rewards for Racing point, with a maximum of 2,000 points earned in any single four-week period. A minimum deposit of £5 is required for rewards points eligibility. Only one bet365 account can be linked to your Rewards for Racing account, and both must share the same email address.
Created by a pair of former bettors who wanted to put more control into the hands of the punters, Betfair has everything, including a live casino, arcade, sportsbook, and betting exchange. It also offers a full schedule of horse racing, including free live streaming for anyone who has placed a bet of at least 50p.
However, you need to wager at least £1 to receive racing rewards points. For every £1 you wager, you earn one point, and a minimum deposit of £10 is required at the time you begin collecting Rewards for Racing points. Points are not awarded for wagers placed in Betfair shops. You can earn a maximum of 2,000 points during 13 predetermined four-week periods.
Founded in 1967, Betfred is a world-renowned sportsbook and online casino that offers live horse race streaming to anyone who has a pending parimutuel wager. You can also use Betfred’s welcome betting offer on horse race betting from around the world, which isn’t something all sports betting sites offer.
To earn horse racing rewards, you must be a resident of the UK or Ireland, make a minimum deposit of £10 or €10, and place your wagers online or over your mobile device. You earn one Rewards for Racing point for every £1 you wager, with a maximum of 2,000 points in 13 predefined four-week periods in each calendar year.
Rewards for Racing does not come with its own mobile app. But you can earn horse racing rewards when your account is connected to one of the partner bookmakers. All wagers placed directly through the bet365, Betfair, and Betfred mobile betting apps earn rewards points.
The 31 racecourses in partnership with Rewards for Racing are:
(Tickets for The Jockey Club Live music events also earn you points)
If you are a racing fan and place frequent parimutuel wagers, a Rewards for Racing membership is an obvious must-have. You earn points on purchases you already make and receive discounts on events you already plan to attend. With no cost to join, everyone who goes to the races should be a member.
All three of the partner bookmakers (bet365, Betfair, and Betfred) award one point for every £1 wagered.
All earned points will stay in your account for 12 months.
There are no blackout dates. If you want to attend the Cheltenham Festival or the Grand National at Aintree, you can.
