Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

DEAL DEAD: Register for £10 American Express cashback on £30 Amazon spend

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

American Express has, literally, just launched a very generous new promotion in association with amazon.co.uk.

Only 8,000 Amex cards can be registered for this offer.

The regular readers of Head for Points have around 50,000 British Airways, Gold, Platinum, Starwood, bmi etc Amex cards between them, at a rough guess, so we could wipe out this offer ourselves if we so wanted.

You will receive £10 cashback on your Amex statement when you spend £30 at amazon.co.uk before June 9th.

Amazon 10 credit

The easiest thing to do, to be honest, is buy a £30 Amazon gift card and add it to your Amazon account.  The money will then sit there until you buy something, with no time pressure.  There is nothing to suggest that gift cards are excluded – all that matters is that ‘amazon.co.uk’ appears on your card statement.

You can register every Amex-issued Amex card that you hold.  Lloyds / MBNA / Barclays and Amex supplementary cards seem to register OK.

Whilst the offer is advertised in a way which promotes Amazon’s fashion pages, ANY £30 purchase from the UK site will qualify for the cashback.

This is what you must do IMMEDIATELY to ensure that your cards are in the first 8,000 to register:

Step 1:  You can see details of the offer and the rules here on the cardmemberoffers.co.uk website  If the page is slow to load due to demand then skip to Step 2.

Step 2:  Visit this page and register your American Express card details

There is no rush to do Step 3 – once registered, as long as your purchase is completed by June 9th, you will get the cashback:

Step 3:  Visit www.amazon.co.uk and spend £30 in one transaction.  If you want to buy a £30 e-gift card, go to the Amazon UK gift card store here and have one emailed to yourself.  There is a link in the e-gift card email which allows you to instantly add it to your Amazon balance.

That’s it.  Please get onto this ASAP if you want to take part, because all 8,000 will disappear very quickly once this offer reaches hotukdeals, moneysavingexpert etc.

The Amazon links in Step 3 include our affiliate details, and Head for Points will receive a small referral commission on anything you buy.  Thank you for your support.
