Two very attractive new offers probably appeared on your American Express account yesterday, although you may not have noticed. These are a continuation of the special deals that have been running for the last few weeks.
The first is one which almost every Head for Points reader should be able to use – £5 off a £10 spend at any Tesco store (not online).
The second is also a good one if you travelling soon – £20 off a £60 spend at World Duty Free.
These offers are limited to a fixed number of sign-ups, so you should register as soon as possible. Both deals are valid until 28th February, so there is no rush to use them.
To sign up, visit americanexpress.co.uk (or open the Amex app) and log in. Go to the summary page for one of your cards. In the right hand margin of the website, you will see a box marked ‘Your Offers’.
Click this, and you will see all the offers available to you. These two above should be included. You need to click ‘Save to Card’ to activate the offer, otherwise it is not valid.
If you have multiple Amex-issued Amex cards (eg BA, Starwood, Gold, Platinum etc) then you should be able to sign up under each of them. I got the offer under all three of my cards, so that is an easy £15 I will save at Tesco.
The money is paid back to you as a statement credit, usually around 5 days after you make the transaction. Importantly, it will combine with ANY other promotion.
With World Duty Free, for example, it will combine with the ‘£5 off £75 spend’ vouchers which can be downloaded here. A £75 spend will then only cost you £50 if you use the coupon and register for the Amex offer.
This is essentially free money, especially the Tesco one, so do sign up on as many cards as you can. Only main cardholders can register, not supplementary cards.
