Get £10 American Express cashback on Heathrow Express train tickets

American Express has launched a new cashback deal with Heathrow Express.

It is showing on my Platinum charge card and my British Airways Premium Plus card but not my Starwood Amex.

You get £10 back on a £35+ Heathrow Express purchase.  The deadline to use the deal is 19th May.  There is no guarantee that this works with cumulative purchases but it is worth a try if you are buying Heathrow Express tickets anyway.

Amex Heathrow Express cashback

A handful of people are reporting a less generous offer of 10% back, but £10 appears to be the most common version.

Remember that you can also earn 10 Avios per £1 spent on Heathrow Express tickets if you use the landing page.  This is more attractive than the standard rewards offer of 1 Heathrow Rewards point per £1 spent.

  1. OT but a heads up in case useful: possibly just my bad luck, or maybe something peculiar to Malaysia where I am now, but it appears that the new debit-rather-than-credit Curve cards (and also Revolut, so perhaps any of the “virtual debit” style cards) are not accepted by those card readers that are designed to be plugged into an iPad/iPhone/laptop/PC etc. They work fine with the usual standalone / self-dialling readers but not with the dumb-terminal ones used by a lot of smaller shops, market stalls, taxis etc…

    Hi, You mentioned cash back cards, what is your thought on the AMEX true-earnings cards. I am considering partnering it up with the AMEX Platinum Charge card.

    What do you think?
