American Express has launched another couple of cashback offers available exclusively to holders of Amex-issued Amex cards. For the purposes of Head for Points, that means Gold, Platinum, SPG and BA Amex cards.
You need to activate these offers before using them.
On a desktop PC, log in to your American Express account. On the statement summary page for each card, you will see a box in the far right margin entitled ‘Your Offers’. Click on that.
On the iPhone or iPad app, you will an icon marked ‘Offers’ very clearly on the page for each card.
This is what I have got, which seems to be common to most people:
£10 cashback on a £50 instore or online spend at Harvey Nichols, expires 16 March
£10 cashback on a £50 instore or online spend at House of Fraser, expires 16 March
£10 cashback on a £30 online spend at asos.com, expires 16 March
Older offers for Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Anthropologie, World Duty Free and Selfridges may also still be showing. It is also possible that you will not have received some or all of these offers, depending on whether or not Amex is feeling the love for you at the moment ….
Remember that you can register for the offer across EVERY Amex-issued Amex card you have, excluding supplementary cards. This means that – as long as you split the payment across multiple cards – you could save £20 on a £100 purchase or £30 on a £150 purchases, depending on how many Amex cards you have.
It is also worth remembering that purchases of gift cards will trigger the bonus, if you don’t have a suitable purchase in mind at the moment but still want to lock in the discount.
