If you have a British Airways American Express card (or, looking at the comments, some other cards as well) you may have received an email from American Express yesterday offering you £10 cashback when you spend £20 at amazon.com.
If you did not receive the offer, there does not appear to be any way of opting in. It is not appearing on online accounts and it is not on the Amex Network or cardmemberoffers.co.uk websites.
The Amazon promotion has very few rules:
You MUST register using the link in the email
You must be in the first 30,000 people to register
You must spend before 3rd December
I expect this offer to be hugely popular and there is a risk that the 30,000 person cap will be reached. My recommendation is that you register immediately and then buy a £20 Amazon gift certificate and add it to your Amazon account.
This is how you do it:
Step 1: Click here to visit the gift cards page on amazon.co.uk
Step 2: Select ‘Send a gift card now: e-mail’
Step 3: Select a random gift card design, select £20 as the value of the voucher and enter your own email address as recipient. It does not matter if this is the same email address as you use for your Amazon account.
Step 4: Pay using the American Express card which you registered
Step 5: Wait a few minutes for the gift certificate to appear in your inbox
Step 6: Visit this page on the Amazon website and redeem the gift certificate
The £20 credit now sits in your Amazon account. It will be used automatically next time you place an order. It doesn’t matter whether a product comes from Amazon directly or a Marketplace merchant – the credit is still accepted. The certificate is valid for 10 years so there is little risk of you not using it.
If you have two Amex cardholders in your household who both received the email, there is no problem with ordering two £20 gift certificates using both cards and adding both certificates to the same Amazon account. The gift vouchers are fully transferable.
