New American Express statement credit deals launched

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

A batch of new ‘statement credit’ offers appeared on my American Express online account yesterday.

If you have a Gold, Platinum, BA, SPG, Nectar or other Amex-issued Amex card, you should have a look and register for any of those which interest you.  Most have a cap on the number of participants.

You will find the offers on the online statement summary pages down at the bottom.

Not targetted?  Don’t panic.  In time, I would expect these offers to appear on the site where any Amex-issued Amex card can be registered – some are already there.

Got a Lloyds, MBNA etc Amex? You can register at the Amex Connect site.  Most of these offers are already showing there.

  1. The house of fraser offer is getting watered down every time. It started out at £10 off £50. It used to be interesting but not any more

  2. Most of these credits are now watered down so much compared to what they were..

  3. OT but does anyone know when the next amex to Virgin bonus may be? I can’t find any posts on here to see when the last one was.

      The last one was over 12-18 months ago. There is no way of knowing when or even if there will be a next one.

  4. I’m pretty underwhelmed by this latest batch of offers. There is nothing that would make me go out of my way to spend money in any of these retailers. If I was planning to spend some money with one of them already I would happily take the discount. The £10 off £50 at HoF and others, was in my mind worth buying some gift vouchers for use in the future on as yet undecided purchases. As ever each to their own!!

  5. I have also River Island – 60 spend, 10 back

  6. BBMI Visa 1 point/ £1 lol
    Every Lidl newspaper (currently) has a £5 off £40 coupon.

    Do Lidl accept Amex? Aldi don’t (not long started taking credit cards at all!) but not sure about Lidl as don’t go there often.

    • No, your only option to get points is an Amex + partner Visa/ MC card, I meant to type BMI Amex, the old issue cards are generous on the Visa points (long may it last!)

      That’s no longer available but there are alternatives.

    • No Amex is not accepted, they only started with credit cards recently maybe a year or two ago.

      I don’t get a chance to go to Lidl much either, my valet goes incognito!! In all seriousness they are leaps and bounds over what they used to be it terms everything; I believe their products are massively denting the profits of the more affluent food distributor. I remember in Germany in the early 1990s I wasn’t sure when I was (sorry my valet) in Aldi/Lidl whether I was at a flee market or a food bank.

      • 2 years ago I used to rattle around all lonely in my local one when it was new, echoey & empty with tumbleweed blown along the aisles by the howling wind.

        Now it’s jam-packed & the carpark is overflowing.

  8. Not quite.
    If you take the simple example of a £100 top line purchase, you will get 20% off for he voucher so the amount subject to the 15% and 2% discounts will be £80 not 100.
    So total discount is 20% of £100 + 17% of £80 = £33.60 so 33.6% discount in total.

  9. River Island – anybody remember the pre-image-enhancement name? Mister Byrite. 🙂

    The Oxford Circus London branch, trying to appeal to visitors, plastered its windows with alternative branding ; Herr Kaufen Sie Richtig 😀 and M Acheter a Bon Prix (or similar). 😀

    Not sure they would have attracted me.

    [missing the opportunity of including proper smilies …]

  10. there was a great net-a-porter offer recently – what do you think the chances are of that coming back or appearing on the car member offers site?!

  11. there is £25 off £100 spend at Hugo Boss which is decent
