If you registered for the ‘£10 cashback when you spend £30 on amazon.co.uk’ offer two weeks ago, you have until Tuesday evening to spend your £30.
Remember that you do not need to buy anything now. The easiest thing to do is to buy a £30 Amazon gift card and add the credit to your Amazon account for later in the year. That is what I did with the three Amex cards I registered.
The process is very simple and only takes a few minutes:
Step 1: Go to the Amazon UK gift card store here and order a £30 gift voucher, to be emailed to yourself
Step 2: Remember to pay with the American Express card which you registered for this offer
Step 3: When you e-gift card arrives, there is a link in it. Click on it and the £30 credit will be automatically deposited into your Amazon account.
Step 4: At roughly the same time as the e-gift card arrives, you will receive an email from American Express confirming that your £10 cashback has tracked.
The credit will sit indefinitely on your Amazon account and will be applied automatically towards future orders.
Please do ensure that you spend £30 on each of the Amex cards you registered. If people register for the offer but do not make the necessary spend then Amex is likely to introduce restrictions on the numbers of cards that can be registered per person in the future. Merchants such as Amazon are also less likely to want to participate again.
