American Express launched a new batch of ‘conditional spend’ offers recently. You will see these either by logging in to your online account and clicking the ‘Offers’ button on the statement page (different cards may show different offers) or by visiting this website.
Here are a sample:
£5 off £60 spend at World Duty Free (to 31 August) – what is good about this is that it will double up with one of the various £5 off coupons for World Duty Free that tend to float around the internet
£5 off £40 spend at Argos (to 31 August) – a trick here is to buy third party gift cards at Argos, effectively getting a £5 discount at a totally different retailer!
£10 off £70 spent at Fenwick or Bentalls (to 31 August)
An interesting one is this:
£10 off £50 spend at the First Great Western website (to 19 November)
The key here is that you can buy tickets for ANY train company via the First Great Western site. You are not restricted to travelling on FGW. This means that it is easily the best choice for buying a train ticket at the moment as long as you will be spending over £50 – the only exception would be if the train company you will be using has exclusive rates which are only on its own site (eg East Coast).
Remember that all of the above offers require pre-registration.
Don’t forget that the ‘£50 back for spending £250 at a UK Hilton’ offer is also still available, details on the same site via the ‘Travel’ tab.
£5 back with Tripadvisor
American Express has also brought back its Tripadvisor promotion.
If you link your American Express card with the Tripadvisor website and write one review (not necessarily a hotel review, a restaurant or attraction review would do), Amex will give you a one-off £5 statement credit.
Full details on how to register can be found here. I am pretty sure that if you took part in this last year you CANNOT get it again ….. although you could always register a different Amex card.
