Last night, many of us received emails from American Express advertising another cashback deal with Amazon.
You will receive £10 back if you spend £35 on amazon.co.uk before the end of July.
American Express has gone to great lengths to ensure that, this time, Head for Points readers do not take all of the 15,000 registration spots!
You can only register if you received the email. Even then, you can only register the American Express card which is mentioned in the email. In my case, it was my very rarely used SPG Amex.
If you did receive the email, register ASAP by clicking the button in the message. Those 15,000 registration spots will not last long.
Remember that you do not need to buy anything now. The easiest thing to do is to buy a £35 Amazon gift card and add the credit to your Amazon account for later in the year. That is what I did last time 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 £35 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 £35 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.
The Amazon links above include our affiliate details, and Head for Points will receive a small referral commission on anything you buy. If you intend to buy some ‘real stuff’ instead of a gift card, our link to the Amazon UK home page is here. Thank you for your support.
