    It’s been at least 6 months since I’ve had any decent offers on either my Gold or BAPP cards.
    When I say decent, I mean any of the ones mentioned on hfp. Is there any way to sign up or request the offer by calling?

    • MarkH says:

      You used to be able to call CS to add the offers manually but now they won’t do it .

  • Graham Walsh says:

    I can confirm that 3 separate flight bookings (for BA) have triggered the £200 back on Amex. Total transactions came to just under £700. Wonder why there is always a £0.78 charge with each booking separate on my card.

    • Graham Walsh says:

      So one of my flights that I booked was £168 but got an email from Amex travel saying when they went to process it on BA the fare had gone up to £200 so I’ll see that on my card. Amex travel will then credit my card back with £32. Good of them to do that. Sure they could have cancelled the ticket within the 24hr window.

    • Tom says:

      when did you book your travel for? I had an Amex rep on chat saying travel had to between 31st October-30th November, which I strongly doubt.

  • Paul says:

    Yep £600.50 for 3 separate BA flights triggered £200 cash back. Thanks amex that’s almost half the platinum fee back in month 1

  • Memesweeper says:

    Car hire through Amex travel can be good value.

  • Eugene says:

    OT. A churn question I didn’t find an answer to in the HFP library.
    Just reffed the other half for a new BAPP from my Plat.
    We just passed the 6 months since we downgraded the previous BAPP to the free card to get the pro rate refund.
    However the free card ran on for another couple of months before it got cancelled- so could use the 241- I know I know we could have just used my Plat to pay.
    Here’s the question- Does tha continued ownership of the free BA cardt invalidate the referral fees on either my Plat or her sign up 25k?

    Concerned of Sussex

    • Rob says:

      It will invalidate her referral (rules are here ) but I think you will get your points.

      • TGLoyalty says:

        I thought the referral t&c now imply you only get the points if the person is eligible for the sign up bonus.

        @Eugene you never know due to IT gremlins but generally it’s 6 month gap from holding a car that earns that rewards currently not just that actual car. Also your certificate is fine if you cancel the BAPP so no need to downgrade regardless of what the call centre tell you

      • Eugene says:

        Sigh what a dufus I am.Elementary error. In future it’s hit the 10k spend, receive voucher and relevant points then cancel immediately.
        Good job there’s a safari holiday to be paid for which will take it out in one go. Can you churn Gold in same six month interval once you receive the 10k renewal bonus? Assuming there’s no Plat or similar held?

        • TGLoyalty says:

          Yep exactly the same as long as you have no MR earning card for 6 months you get a joining bonus

  • Martin says:

    “Remember that you can get a further 3,000 bonus Heathrow Rewards points (worth 3,000 Avios) if you sign-up via this link and spend £150 in one day before the end of the year.”

    I have 3 weeks parking coming up which would be more that £150, would that trigger the £150 spend bonus if booked in advance or does it need to be in the airport?

  • Nigel Williams says:

    Would the spend count for car hire?

  • George says:

    Would anyone please be able to take a screenshot of the Amex Offer?
    Have called Amex to see if they will put it onto my card, but they want a screenshot from my “friend’s” account to see which offer I’m referring to. Thanks!

    • Robman says:

      Having just spent 30 minutes waiting and then speaking with an Amex Customer Service manager, there is no chance of being added to this offer. The normal ” it is a targeted offer, if you don’t have it, you may receive it at a later date, subject to take-up and availability, otherwise maybe you’ll get it next time”. That was with them already understanding exactly what offer I was talking about. Apparently checked with the marketing team and was told the above.
