This seems like easy free money, to be honest.
American Express is offering a £5 statement credit when you connect your Amex card to your TripAdvisor account and write one review on the site.
The promotion runs until 31st December. However, it is limited to 25,000 people so I wouldn’t leave it until the last minute. Remember that you can review restaurants and attractions, not just hotels.
The rules are straightforward:
Your Amex card must stay connected to TripAdvisor until the £5 credit has posted
The credit will appear within 90 days of the end of the offer period (so it could take until 31st March!)
Registering is easy. Simply go to this link here and connect one of your Amex cards to your Tripadvisor account. If you don’t have a Tripadvisor account, it is easy enough to open one and link it up.
It seems that only Amex-issued Amex cards qualify for this promotion – ie BA, Nectar, SPG, Gold, Green, Centurion, Platinum, Harrods, Costco. Lloyds and MBNA Amex cards do not qualify. Think of it as another reason to get yourself a card if you haven’t got around to it yet!
