As well as being one of Britain's best known high street brands, John Lewis offers a range of financial services products via different providers.
John Lewis is a partnership, which means it is owned by its employees, rather than private shareholders.
The store issues a branded credit card, which is backed by HSBC. The card provided is dubbed the ‘Partnership card’, and you can earn Partnership points when you spend.
You get one point for every pound spent in John Lewis or Waitrose (including online sales) and one point for every two pounds spent everywhere else. To get £5 in vouchers to spend at either of the above stores, you need to earn 500 Partnership points.
In the car insurance sector, John Lewis acts as a broker. Policies will be underwritten by one of a number of insurers, and are provided by Ageas.
There is an exclusive arrangement for John Lewis home insurance policies. These are underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance.
