New Amex statement credit offers launched

A batch of new ‘statement credit’ offers appeared on my American Express online account yesterday.

If you have a Gold, Platinum, BA, SPG, Nectar or other Amex-issued Amex card, you should have a look and register for any of those which interest you.  Most have a cap on the number of participants.

You will find the offers on the online statement summary pages down at the bottom.

  1. While the T&Cs say that the Topshop deal isn’t valid at “outlet stores, concessions, Outfit or Topman stores”, Topshop gift cards can be used at other Arcadia stores – including Topman and the other ones listed here.

    My offers page (for a long-discontinued Blue credit card) lists the ones in the post, and also Skype, First Great Western, Gap, and a couple of hotel deals.

    • Thanks Martin. Saved me a load of hassle this afternoon.

    • Hi Martin,

      I’m a bit worried. I took it your post meant I can buy £50 voucher on Topshop website and get the £15 statement credit? Its just that the £50 voucher itemised is marked on my Amex account as being from VOUCHEREXPRESS.CO.UK. Is that a problem?

      Perhaps I needed to buy in store?

      Have you any idea if I got this wrong?

      • Gary: I’m afraid it sounds like you’re not going to get the statement credit for those ones. I hadn’t realised that Topshop used an external site to sell vouchers online. You’d need to go to an actual Topshop store to buy the vouchers to make sure that it shows up as Topshop on your statement.

        You might want to contact Voucherexpress to see if you can cancel the order before it’s dispatched. Worst case scenario is that you’ll be left with £50 of Topshop vouchers (which you’ll hopefully still be able to spend in Arcadia stores), but I guess that’s not the end of the world!

        • Hi Martin,

          Not without my 30% discount 😉

          I wouldn’t have thought it would be too much trouble to cancel. Sent them an email we’ll see.

          Cheers

  2. You can also register for non Amex-issued Amex cards (MBNA, Lloyds etc.) via this link:

  3. Rob: This page has the IHG title. Thought I was going crazy for a minute.,

    • Argh. Something went odd when writing this and the article suddenly gained the IHG headline. I corrected that, a weird WordPress bug, but missed the slug.

      Cannot change it now as the Twitter feed etc all link to it.

  4. Gap have a 30% off this weekend. Combine that with the Amex offer and you can get a very good deal.

    • Is this instore? website? all products or just some ranges?

      Can you provide more info please?

  5. Apologies I was running late for an appointment.

    I received an email this morning from Gap, this link should work
    http://view.email.gap.eu/?j=feb9127970670375&m=fe9c13707564037c71&ls=fe26157277620374761176&l=ff66107575&s=fe2a15727066077f731d77&jb=ff3616707066&ju=&tid=guem002062&EV=GUKUKMKTUK09042014&DI=128205574&CD=GNC_GPR

    Looks like if you buy 6 items you get 50% – combine it with the Amex offer and £100 of items will cost you £35!

    Offer is online and in store.

    • I think it’s 30% and then another 20% i.e. not 50%

    • Flippin’ frustrating on the Gap site that a stupid pop up keeps popping up every single time you load any page. Even when you sign up, it still comes up. It’s so annoying, I’m less likely to buy anything from there.

  6. I can’t seem to find the place to register for this (BA premium plus) – could someone give me an idiot’s guide to registering? (usually works ok, but can’t find “your offers” or equivalent anywhere….)

  7. Good afternoon all.
    I am a novice in this site and I am looking for some help and advice.
    At the beginning of the year I applied for the amex platinum and following raffles advice then apply for the cathway pacific gold card. I have not had the chance to do a full use of it as yet.
    We have booked BA flights for February 15 using companion ticket.
    My question is what do I need to do in order to be able to reserve seats using the Cathway card. I guess I need to register the card but so far I’ve been unsuccessful.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    • Go to the Qatar website (yes Qatar) and use Manage My Booking to bring up your BA reference. Add your Cathay number. Wait half an hour. Pull up booking on BA.com using booking reference. Seat selection should be possible.

      • sir crusticroc says:

        Tricks of the trade 😉

        • The Finnair website should also work for this – or at least it used to :)

          • Royal Jordian is very straight forward. If you have a BA number already attached the finnair adds rather than replaces the cathy number, preventing seat selection…

  8. Sorry forgot to click this to get your comments.

  9. Thank you all for your mails and help.
    I have tried both suggestions, and seem to work. I am not sure how to add the Cathway number to Finnair without replacing the BA number though. It does not seem to allow me both anyway.

  10. I bought Topman gift cards at a Topshop store on Saturday afternoon using 2 MBNA-issued Amex and the statement credits have already been showing on my account this evening!

  11. Guys what exactly does excluding concessions mean? I think I made a mistake ( again ). Bought sale items directly from website with my Amex card. No sign of £15 credit.

    Bought stuff 11/09 so I think I have made a mistake as one of her items was a kate moss design with 2 asterix on description. Is that a concession?

    Wife loves new stuff so I guess worst case I can go to store and buy £50 giftcard and get her some more goodies.

    None too bright I admit.

    Any advice?
