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!
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 ….
