Special ‘statement credit’ offers from Amex inc Argos, Dixons Travel, Harvey Nicks

American Express has launched a series of special offers for cardholders, offering cashback on purchases at selected retailers.

What is different this time is that the discounts ONLY seem to appear on the American Express website when you are logged in. This may (or may not) be an experiment by Amex to see if anyone actually reads the website when checking their statement!

Amex card

This is what I see across all 3 of my cards. You need to click ‘save’ on the offer on the website in order to activate the discount, it is not automatic:

£10 off £50 spend at Harvey Nichols

£10 off £50 spend at D&D Restaurants (ex Conran)

£15 off £100 spend at Blacks

£10 off £30 spend at Collar & Cuffs (who?)

If anyone has a BA Amex (free one) or Amex Gold and sees anything different, please post.

Meanwhile, some new general offers have appeared on the Amex website:

£10 off £50 spend at Argos (exp 16/12, first 1500 people only) (EDIT: 1,500 limit already reached it seems)

£15 off £60 spend at Carphone Warehouse (exp 16/12)

£25 off £80 spend at Ocado (first time customers, exp 16/12)

£10 off £75 spend at Dixons Travel (under the Travel tab, exp 16/12)

10% off at Heals

There are also bonus points available for shopping at other retailers, but nothing too exciting.

Note that you need to activate each offer before it is valid.

One interesting quirk you may want to exploit is to buy gift cards in Argos for other retailers ….

  1. I had a great time in Dixons T5 yesterday. I did, as it happens, want to get an iPad Air, so I got the Heathrow Rewards bonus, and I split the purchase between two Amex cards, getting £20 off in total. But then I discovered there was a promotion which allowed me to get a cover and some other accessories at 20% off – so I quickly registered a third Amex card and took advantage of that with another £10 off, and the further reduced prices. And then they said that for buying the iPad I could purchase Monster noise/cancelling headphones with £70 of the list price of £200, so registered a fourth (!) Amex and did so. They will either make a great Christmas present or hit eBay very soon (and I can see I’ll more than make my money back if I do that).

  2. Following deal just appeared on my BA Amex, so keep checking back as seems they are adding offers

    Pizza Express
    Spend £30 or more and get £10 back

    • Thanks, also shows for my Gold card.

      First 4,000 links only. Main cardholders only.

      • pazza2000 says:

        Main Cardholders only? I have not seen that before, hopefully this isn’t the case with the Small Shop promo next weekend.

    • I’m having that! Will sign up the wifes card as well and split the bill!

      • Pizza Express are serious discounters. It’s not difficult to get 2-4-1 (2nd main course ‘free’) or 2nd main course for £5, Orange Wednesdays, etc. I forgot to mention that such deals don’t appear to be excluded, so long as the minimum charge is £30.
