Generous £75 Wheely offer with American Express

A good deal with Wheely, the London-based Uber competitor, has appeared on a lot of American Express cards.   You need to look under the ‘Offers’ section on the online statement page of each Amex card you have.

You will receive £25 cashback when you spend £25 with Wheely in one ride.  You can get the money up to three times until the offer expires on 17th May.  It is actually three x £25 credits per Amex card, so you may find that you can get it six or nine times depending on how many of your Amex cards it appears on.

Wheely is equivalent to Uber Exec and Uber Luxe,  Its cheapest option is a Mercedes E-Class.

Wheely

The biggest snag is the need to spend £25 in one ride.  It is NOT cumulative and you do not get any credit if you spend under £25.  Spend £24 and your net cost is £24.  Spend £26 and, with the credit, your ride will only cost £1.

This is not a problem if you are heading to an airport but on shorter trips you cannot be sure you will hit the target.  The complex way Wheely calculate fares (an E-Class is £6 + 50p per minute + £1.60 per mile) means that you can’t be certain what you’ll pay.  It is certainly worth a look, however.

  1. I’m STILL waiting to hear back from Curve after seeking to cancel three weeks ago. I got an initial (non-automated) response after about five days asking if I was sure, I confirmed I was – and still nothing despite having chased.

    I’m getting very close to credit card chargeback territory.

    • Same position, they will just send the same automated response, i think they sent me three emails like that already. Will be taking it up with CC

  2. 20% off your first Wheely ride with code: 59J6X Stackable with the Amex offer, good with airport runs where the 20% is obviously worth more and the ride is fixed price so no concerns about not going over the £25.

    • Is that just within the M25?

      • illuminatus says:

        I am completely lost why there are so many questions and guessing about pricing. If you download the app and enter ‘from-to’ addresses, it will give you a price estimate, same as Uber.

        Airport transfers on the other hand will have a fixed cost, which is good.

  3. OT: Good Lufthansa business class sale on, e.g. Seoul £1392, Hong Kong £1546

  4. OT – Tokyo flight advice

    I have a Lloyds upgrade voucher I’ve noticed is about to expire so I’m planning on redeeming today. Any particular advise on which flight / airport is better ? Both HND and NRT have business seats available on the dates I’m interested in.
    Thanks

  5. OT. Any bonus points for a supp card on SPG Amex?

  6. My SPG points from the SPG amex card have left my amex account but not turned up in my marriot bonvoy yet – thoughts?

  7. O/T I am due to visit client in Cornwall, (flying to Newquay) a friend of mine raves about the Pullman train service from Paddington, Anyone tried It?

  8. berneslai says:

    OT: Continuing the SPG Amex threads, I’ve just received my “30,000 points bonus” from my SPG card and they have transferred 1:1 to Bonvoy points (not the 3:2 that I assumed). I know this has been done to death on here before (I can’t find any of the old comments) but has anyone had any luck getting the correct conversion on the SPG points or shall I just leave it and carry on with my life?

    @james don’t forget that cancelling cards will also have an effect on your credit record.

    Alex W. That I wasn’t aware of, never even thought about it. So, if I cancel one of my cards that is ‘bad’ news ? If so, I’ll cut if up and just forget it.

    • I wouldn’t worry. Cancelling every so often isn’t going to do much damage.

      • TGLoyalty says:

        Depends if it’s one of your older accounts. The clarity card I’ve had for about 12 years is going no where for that exact reason.

        • Mr Dee says:

          The only reason would be to keep the benefits of the card, cancelling a card can only be seen as beneficial as it means less credit utilisation IMO

  10. where do I insert Wheely referral code – can anyone advise please?..

  11. OT: there is 700 avios now available for a first Tesco online grocery shop via BA eee store.

    • Shoestring says:

      = new email address

      • Wonder if we could push more than one through each avios account.

      • Purchase Conditions
        Collect 700 Avios when you spend £45 on your first online Tesco shop. Avios will only be awarded if the first purchase is made via a desktop computer. No Avios will be awarded if you spend £44.99 or less. Avios will not be available if you are a Tesco Delivery Saver customer. Customers who have made an online grocery purchase with Tesco before will not be eligible for any Avios.

        You will not receive Avios for any other purchases from Tesco.

        Queries can only be investigated after 30 days from the date the purchase was made.

        • The stand out point for me here is that if you are a regular Tesco delivery customer and pay the monthly Delivery Saver fee, you can’t use that so would have to pay for delivery (presumably on top of the £45 min spend on groceries)

    • The small print in the ‘About’ section underneath notes the following:

      “Remember your Clubcard points can be turned into Avios on every shop you make. £2.50 of Clubcard Vouchers can be changed into 700 Avios..”

      I thought it was £2.50 = 600 Avios. Is this an error on BAs website (which, lets face it, would not be unusual) or have they increased the rate? The link to the Tesco page suggests its a(nother) BA IT error – Tesco still quoting £2.50 = 600 Avios
