Gett (ex Get Taxi) – £5 Amex statement credit

A new American Express statement credit offer has appeared for Gett, the UK taxi app formerly known as Get Taxi.

You need to take a look at the online statements for each of your Amex cards to see if the offer appears and then click ‘Save to Card’.  You will receive a £5 statement credit when you make a single transaction of £15 before 21st August.

The terms and conditions make it clear that the £15 must be incurred in one transaction (this is not always the case with these Amex deals).  If you are not already a Gett customer, you can get an additional £5 off your first ride using my refer a friend code here.

She also called you the ‘posh’ Martin Lewis so I think that is a compliment :)”
