Here that's known generically as a loyalty scheme but most people only know
the name of
the specific card they use with a specific shop (with Tesco it's a "Club
Card") although there
is a less specific card called "Nectar" supported by several smaller chains.

I have to agree with you.  One of the cases where using British English
terminology would
be too confusing.  A quick search didn't reward me with a suitable generic
term but added
to the problems because it seems that Australia and New Zealand call it
"cash out.."  The
closest I can get to a generic term is "debit card cashback" which I don't
think clarifies
matters enough to keep the German mappers happy.
