Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas
Question: Is it allowed for us to receive incentives such as cash back (I.e 1%) and travel reward points from credit card companies?
These are permitted as leading scholars, such as Mufti Taqi Usmani, have stated. They are legally viewed as being gifts.
However, if they are being given by the bank as interest on your deposit or can only be redeemed by purchasing bank products that are impermissible, then it would not be permitted.
