Amex offer at London Westfield’s – £20 off £100 spend

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

American Express is running a promotion with both of the mega Westfield shopping malls in London.

Until 31st August, which does not give you long, you will receive a £20 statement credit when you spend £100.

Unlike most Amex promotions, the £100 spend does NOT need to be at one single store.  You can shop at a mixture of stores, on different days if necessary.

Westfield

Frankly, the easiest thing to do is to buy £100 of gift vouchers at a participating outlet.  Waitrose is participating, for example, so buying £100 of John Lewis / Waitrose gift cards (yes, they have finally started doing plastic gift cards and got rid of the paper vouchers) is an easy one.

I won’t be back in the UK before the 31st, unfortunately.  If I was I would be tempted to register every Amex card I can find and buy £100 of Waitrose vouchers on every card, given we shop there every week.

The site to register, and which also has the list of participating stores, is here.

  • Barry says:

    Seems as if the maximum number you can register for is 3 guys. That is,with exactly same name and email. Hint hint!

    • Trevor says:

      I don’t think that is the case as I registered 7 cards with exactly matching details and received confirmation pages and emails for all. Perhaps the registration limit has been reached – what error if any do you get?

      • Barry says:

        Trevor
        It wasn’t an error message-just said ‘you have lares ad registered’ or words to that effect

        • Barry says:

          Sorry
          Non autocorrected version
          was ‘You have already registered’

  • emad says:

    People registering 7 & 9 cards, are these on separate accounts?! or with additional cards on same account?! Additional cards are usually excluded from these sorts of deals aren’t they?

  • emad says:

    Your Eligible Transaction(s) must be charged in full to the Registered Card. Transactions made on another unregistered card account or a supplementary card with a different card or account number are not eligible.

    • TimS says:

      You CAN register supplimentary cards.

      The T&Cs you quote just mean that you couldn’t spend £50 on the main card & a further £50 on a supplimentary one and pool them to get the £20 statement credit for £100 spend.

      If however you registered both & spent £100 on each you would get 2x statement credits.

  • AliD says:

    Do you reckon Apple vouchers bought in store would count?
    Could be worth getting a few £100 of these before September 9th!

    • emad says:

      T&C states that: Westfield gift card purchases are excluded from this offe
      Not sure if this applies to stores vouchers/Gift cards

  • Richard says:

    The currency exchange shops in Westfield are part of the scheme. I wonder if I could buy £100 of euros on my amex and then get £20 back? Doesn’t seem to be excluded in the T&Cs.

    • Andrew (@andrewseftel) says:

      Usually you get very quick email confirmation that you’ve earned the discount. Try it and let us know how you get on!

    • Leo says:

      How did you get on with this?

      Did it work?

      I’m heading to Westfield London today and have a holiday next week so might make sense.

  • Tim says:

    Just bought a £100 gift card from the Waitrose in Westfield and the cashier mentioned I was the fourth person to do that today! I duly explained the Amex promo, not sure it she understood.

    • Lee says:

      … I must have been the third then 🙂 Though I didn’t get an email from Amex yet…

      • Mark says:

        Yes same with me at Waitrose at Shepherds Bush Westfield

        I picked up two gift cards and was instantly asked “£50 on each card using Amex I assume”

        She said she had been busy this afternoon and knew there was something happening as they are selling loads more cards than usual

        Thanks Raffles

    • RIccati says:

      Flyertalk has a commandment “Do not call the airline.” I’d say do not discuss promotions with merchants, receive them and be happy. You never know how it can feed back.

  • Dean says:

    If it says congratulations, does that mean you’ve been registered? as its not showing up on my offers page of my AMEX

    • Trevor says:

      You didn’t register for it through the offers page so it won’t show up there. Those offers on the amex site are only for Amex customers with an amex issued card, and then not even all customers will get the same offers. This offer is different and to any Amex card holder.

    • Rob says:

      It won’t, only stuff you register via your online account shows there

      • Dean says:

        but how do i know if i’m one of the first 4000 people?

        • Trevor says:

          Your card registers and you get a congrats/successful/whatever screen and email.

          • Dean says:

            Ahh simple enough thanks Trevor.

          • Jo says:

            Should you get an email for every card? I just registered my Amex Amex card and got the “Congratulation – you are now enrolled” screen and an email (completely surprised that the cap hasn’t been reached by today – the 30th – btw), a minute later registered my Lloyds Amex card and got the “Congratulations” screen but no email.

            Should I consider that card successfully enrolled?

          • Jo says:

            Ignore my question above…the email eventually arrived!

  • Michael says:

    Can someone confirm that I need to make the purchase by 31/08 only and that it doesn’t matter for the transaction to show up on the statement a couple of days later?

    • RIccati says:

      There is date of original transaction on the statement, by which they are sorted. So, yes up to and including 31st.

    • Jo says:

      In my experience yes you’ll get the credit without a problem. I’ve done a few promos on the last day in-store and it’s always gone through. Even the last summer spend stimulus offer which was online worked for me on the last day. I agree with Riccati the transactions appear on the statement with the original date they were made – even if they don’t appear on the statement on that day. They’ll appear first in pending transactions and in a day or so they’ll show on the statement and it doesn’t matter that they’re not on the statement before the end of the promo, only that the purchase was made before the offer expired.
