Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Lots and lots of free Hailo taxi credit for Amex cardholders

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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.

Amex Hailo

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.

    Already gone 🙁

  • Dan says:

    Just tried to register now (10:00 BST) and was informed the maximum number of registered cards had been reached! Snooze you loose!

  • Henry says:

    Bagged 6 at the crack of dawn

  • andy21 says:

    I got a confirmation email on one of my 3 cards I registered. Is there any way of checking if one has registered?

  • M says:

    Missed another one 🙁

  • pazza2000 says:

    Missed! Was this mentioned anywhere else? A sign of HFP readership that these types of things are now gone so quick 🙂

    • Rob says:

      It was emailed yesterday to some BA Amex cardholders. But we will have taken at least 500 this morning.

  • Haroon says:

    If I already have the 10 pound credit on Hailo – from an earlier promotion i saw on here – how does that impact this deal?

  • idrive says:

    it should have no impact. The credit will be deducted from Amex on your statement, as i see it
