Following on from their recent promotion (which Head for Points readers exhausted within a few hours), American Express and London taxi app Hailo have launched another collaboration.
This one could be even more lucrative!
American Express is offering a £15 statement credit when you spend £20 with Hailo before May 14th.
Importantly, this does NOT have to be in one transaction. It can be cumulative. It is open to both new and existing customers.
You can change the payment card in your Hailo account as often as you want. Nothing stops you from registering every Amex-issued American Express card you have (via this website here) and receiving £15 back on all of them.
This promotion was sent to me as a British Airways Amex promotion. However, when you go to the registration page, it is clear that all Amex-issued American Express cards are accepted.
We have four qualifying cards in our household, so that is £60 of statement credit we can generate. It shouldn’t be much trouble running up £80 of Hailo charges.
With this promo, it is even worth using Hailo for short trips – despite the £8 or £10 minimum fare, depending on time of day – because the cashback will still massively outweigh the premium you pay over the standard meter fare.
To take part, this is what you need to do:
Download the Hailo app on your iOS or Android device, if you don’t have it already
Add your American Express card as your chosen payment card
Register the same American Express card at this website – you MUST register your card to receive the cashback
Hail a cab via the app
You will receive £15 statement credit when you cumulatively spend £20 before 14th May
The promotion is limited to the first 2,000 cards to be registered, so I would act today if you want to take part.
