Still got £10 Amazon cashback from Amex to spend? It’s Amazon Prime Day

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

A few weeks ago, many of us received an email from American Express offering £10 cashback if £35 was spent on a specified Amex card at before the end of July.

If you got this offer, it is worth taking a look at Amazon today.  They are running a range of one-day specials exclusively for Amazon Prime members.  However …. nothing stops you signing up for a FREE 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime and then cancelling tomorrow.  Amazon is actually encouraging this, knowing that a good percentage of people will decide to keep it.

Bose earphones

Here is a list of some of the deals which are available:

Bose QuietComfort 20 noise cancelling headphones for Android, Windows and Blackberry phones, £129.95 (50% off)

Fire TV Stick, £19 (46% off)

Kindle, £39.99 (£20 off)

Lenovo FLEX 10 10.1-inch multimode touchscreen notebook, £129.99 (54% off)

Xbox One 1TB with Half: The Master Chief collection and extra wireless controller, £329 (18% off)

PS4 1TB, PlayStation TV and Destiny, £329 (14% off)

You can also buy an Amazon gift card (a plastic one, delivered in a box) for £50 and receive a £10 promotional code in addition.  This code must be used by the end of August to buy any items sold by Amazon itself – not third party sellers.

There will also be other special deals throughout the day.  Keep an eye on the Amazon home page for details.  Even if you don’t have a £10 cashback credit from American Express to use, there are still some good deals available.

    Got the notebook and used my remaining Amazon vouchers. Tried to pick up cards as well but they all failed at the till ;-(

    Promo code has ended apparently..

    “Sorry, this promotion has ended.”

    I had my card registered on the Amex Deal and have put in £50 worth of spend but no email from Amex that usually signifies I have triggered the deal. Has anyone else had the usually instantaneous email come through?

    • Rob says:

      They did not send out emails for this deal. They were also slow (well, slower than usual) in crediting the £10. However, I can confirm that I did get it successfully on my Starwood Amex without any chasing.

        How long did it take? Forgot to do it in June so bought my £35 gift card today

    Picked up the headphones (seems like a pretty good deal). I’d previously used the free trial so signed up to prime, ordered the headphones then changed my subscription to instant video only (5.99 a month rather than £79 fee). So far, it looks like they’ve taken the £79, refunded £72 (I assume the difference is the 1 day delivery fee if it’s not free) and charged £5.99 for prime instant video. Hopefully I can cancel this after a month and it’s only around £13 for half price bose headphones. Not bad!
