If you read this post from a few days ago, I am pleased to say that the promotion is working exactly as planned.
The deal is that Amex Platinum cardholders can get 5,000 bonus Membership Rewards points for making ANY booking on the Amex Travel website. A similar offer to Amex Preferred Rewards Gold cardholders is offering 2,500 points.
Well, I booked my £8.25 dorm room in Thailand a couple of days ago (as pictured above!) and my statement now show:
Amex Travel Brighton £8.25
Base points: 8
Bonus points: 5,016
Total points: 5,024
Unlike the Mr Porter, travel insurance and FX promotions, these points are posting immediately – so one less thing to remember to chase up!
The cheapest verified room I’ve heard of is £5.21 …. there was a £4 claim on the blog but I haven’t been sent a link to that one!
