American Express has launched another batch of cashback offers available.
You need to activate these offers before using them.
If you have an Amex-issued Amex card:
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.
If you have an Amex card issued by Lloyds, MBNA or Barclays, you need to register via www.cardmemberoffers.co.uk instead.
Frankly, this batch of offers is not desperately exciting:
Debenhams (instore or online): £10 credit on £50 spend before 16 May (first 4,000 cards only)
Moss Bros / Moss / Savoy Tailors Guild: £50 credit on £200 spend before 16 May (first 4,000 cards only)
Heals (instore or online): £15 credit on £150 spend before 16 May
Armani Exchange: 20% statement credit before 16 May
Flying Flowers: £5 credit on £25 spend before 20 June
Britannia Hotels: £20 credit on £120 spend before 16 July
There is an older offer which is still showing as well:
PH Hotels: £30 credit on £250 spend before 31 May
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 Debenhams purchase or £30 on a £150 purchase, 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. This is particularly relevant at Debenhams, where you may want to pick up a gift card now and then use it when the sale comes round.
