I wanted to flag the excellent Wheely deal again today. A lot of Head for Points readers have taken advantage of this since we first mentioned it, and feedback from those who have used the service has been very good.
Wheely is a London-based Uber competitor which is running its own American Express offer. It may or may not appear 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 Lux. Its cheapest option is a Mercedes E-Class.
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 although the app will calculate an estimated fare before you book.
