The Christmas shopping season is starting to get into gear and the special offers are starting to appear. You have probably received a letter or email about the main American Express deals, although I have recapped them at the bottom of this list.
What you may not have seen, though, are these new deals which are only valid for airport shopping.
American Express at Airports
Via the shopping tab at the Amex cardmember offers site, you can register for:
Café Nero – £5 cashback when you spend £10 at Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted
Ted Baker – £10 cashback when you spend £65 at Heathrow and Gatwick
Sunglass Hut – £10 cashback when you spend £30 at Heathrow and Gatwick
Dixons – £10 cashback when you spend £30 at Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted and Edinburgh
Harrods – £10 cashback when you spend £65 at Heathrow and Gatwick
Fortnum & Mason – £10 cashback when you spend £65 at Heathrow T5
WH Smith – £5 cashback when you spend £10 at Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted and Edinburgh
There is also a World Duty Free offer in the main Christmas promotion as you will see below.
Most of these deals run until the end of January. The WH Smith and Dixons one are particularly interesting. Café Nero is a tricky place to spend £10 in one transaction unless you stock up on snacks!
General Amex Christmas offers
Amex launched a huge range of High Street discount deals this week. You will find a selection of these on your online statement pages on the Amex website and you can also register via the cardmember offers website.
This is a selection of what is available. Most expire on December 14th. Remember that you MUST register individually for each offer.
House of Fraser – £20 cashback on £100
Fenwick / Bentalls – £10 cashback on £70
Debenhams – £10 cashback on £50
Laura Ashley – £20 cashback on £100
The White Company – £20 cashback on £100
Dell – £100 cashback on £699
Milli Millu – 10% cashback
Rigby & Peller – 10% cashback
Argos – £10 cashback on £100
Heal’s – £15 cashback on £150
World Duty Free – £10 cashback on £65 (runs to January)
All of these deals should be available across MBNA, Barclays and Lloyds Amex cards as well as directly issued ones.
Finally, Virgin Flying Club is offering double miles on specific merchants at its Shops Away shopping portal. Participating shops are House of Fraser (so you could double up with the Amex deal above), Selfridges, John Lewis, Apple, Net A Porter, M&S, Currys and asos. You can visit the Shops Away site here.
