    Also FT £25 back on £30 spend

  • Crafty says:

    OT: Sorry for repeating, this was lost in the late evening shuffle.

    If I no show for a (Ryanair) flight, will there be any issues for my 2 year old daughter travelling? There are 3 other adults on the booking, who would all be travelling, including my partner (who is my daughter’s mother). I am just worried that they might have “tagged” her ticket to mine in some way.

    I dont want to ask the airline this directly for obvious reasons.

    • Anna says:

      I can’t see a problem in theory if all the other pax including mum are on the same PNR, however some countries have rules about young children traveling with one parent needing the consent of the second one, and if the surnames are different there could be an issue.

      • Michael C says:

        Yes, as Anna says, only possible problem would be with only one parent travelling – I’d take a copy of the daughter’s birth certificate just in case.

        • Crafty says:

          Thanks. We haven’t had it mentioned to us so far, though the couple directly after us coming into E Midlands received a lengthy explanation about “next time”. The child’s surname is a double barrelled combination of both of ours; is that considered “different”?

        • J says:

          We’re told to take: copy of birth certificate, photocopy of non travelling partner’s passport, and a signed letter of consent (there are templates online) – including name, dob, passport numbers for the three of you (two parents and child), departure airport and date, and if applicable, return flight airport and date. Then sign and date. As you said, chances are if you don’t have these, they will just wave through and request them next time – especially, I understand, if the child is travelling with their mother. I’ve heard (and this may just be travel gossip, but I suspect not), that they are much more vigilent if they are travelling alone with their father.

  • Robman says:

    No Amex travel offerings any of mine or my wife’s cards including Platinum and Gold.
    Very disappointing as we used these offers last time around which was great.
    Did anyone receive this offer again if you redeemed it last time it was offered?

    • Amit says:

      I did redeem before and still got the offer (£200 off £600) on my plat

      • Robman says:

        Lucky you.

        • Kinkell says:

          Indeed! We have totally useless offers. Not had anything decent for ages, Getting a bit cheesed off hearing about some great offers that don’t appear on any of our 6 cards. I’d love to know how Amex decide who does /doesn’t get them .

    • Mike L says:

      Same here, 4 cards, 2 gold and 2 BAPP -nothing and I could easily use it for hotels in Barcelona later this month – disappointing

      • MDA says:

        Try calling amex customer service and asking. Believe it works then

        • Robman says:

          I called Amex customer service and they were adamant that the offers are targeted and they no longer have the option to manually add individual offers to your card. So I’m flat out of luck.

        • Mike L says:

          Thanks but my experience of this is the same as Robman below. They can’t / won’t add manually

    • Will says:

      I redeemed last time, no sign of it this time.

      Keep checking though as the TripAdvisor offer appeared on mine about a week after others reported it live.

    • Tom Cook says:

      I used the offer for a hotel booking in Florence in June the last time it came round, not in my Plat now annoyingly.

  • Andrew says:

    Has Louis Vuitton now started accepting Heathrow Rewards?

    • MH says:

      Yes- I used it in T3 LV last week

    • Rob says:

      I wondered that, because when they opened they were very strict about not accepting it. But they are on the list. I will email the HR head on Monday.

      • Andrew says:

        Thanks Rob, be good to know for sure. Connected: Harrods have started to get tight on refusing to add Harrods points retrospectively if you use Heathrow points card in store – so the advice is to used Harrods card in store and then do a retroapective cliam with Heathrow.

  • X says:

    OT: I have recently applied for the Amex Rewards credit card (the ones with the blue square), and I have been trying to add it to my online account, however, I wasn’t successful – I’ve received the message saying it cannot be added and to create a new Amex ID. Is this due to the fact that I already have a Gold card? Or should I just give them a call?

    • Peter K says:

      Somebody on here says that leaving it a couple of days usually works and then it can be added to your main online amex account.
      Phoning should work. Creating a new account, adding it, then ringing later to combine accounts also apparently works.

      • X says:

        Hi, yeah I’ve spoken to them. They’ve told me to either create a new acc and then phone up so they can combine them, or wait 5-7 days and then try to add it again/phone up

        • Alan says:

          Yep, I has this with my recent BAPP – as Peter says, give it a few days then try again. There seems to be some manual internal process that can take a while.

  • Ryan Thomas says:

    Can’t see the offer on my offers. Was told that this was rolled on the 4th September? Can anyone confirm that?

    • Darren says:

      I have it on my Platinum and have added it to my card. Just need a reason to use it now!

  • fbrj says:

    I got the £200 offer on my Plat. My daughter is the supplementary card holder (for the travel insurance and PP lounge access). She also has the same offer on her card. Most of the other offers appear on both cards but not all.

    Do we get the £200 twice or just the once?

    • Crafty says:

      If you spend the target on each card.

    • Roger says:

      One per card.
      If the offer is on two separate card ( even if supplementary card) it will work fine.

    • Alan says:

      Ooh good point, forgot to check supp card! Have got it on both, now need to work out what to spend £1,200 on!

    • fbrj says:

      Thank you all for your replies. Looks promising……

  • Maxime says:

    I’ve contacted Amex customer service and I quote “In order to be eligible for the credit of £200, you need to spend £600 or more in one single transaction on pre-paid hotels, flights, car hire or experiences through American Express Travel”

    Spend doesn’t appear to be cumulative… did anybody hear otherwise?

    • PF says:

      Amex also telling me it must be a single transaction, but posts elsewhere suggesting it works with multiple. Did you get confirmation either way?
