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

If you missed our article last week, American Express is now accepted at ALDI.

A ‘£5 cashback when you spend £10’ offer appeared on many Amex cards yesterday – I have it on my Platinum.  This is valid for one transaction before 30th April.

You need to save the offer to your card in order to register.  If you have it, it will be under the ‘Offers’ tab on your statement page on the website or app.

    OT: Applied for Hilton Diamond status match and they’ve come back saying if I do 8 stays my status will be extended to March 2019. I thought it would be valid till 2020 but they are only giving for a year. Is that right?

    • Rob says:

      The promo has been running to March 2019 for a year. I thought they would extend it (it is 9 months since I got mine, it was March 2019 then) but clearly not.

      • S879 says:

        Thanks Rob. Can anyone else confirm who are doing the challenge that they are only giving it till next March. I might give it a miss as don’t have much planned for the latter part of this year. If it’s till March 2020, then it’s worth doing.
