A new supermarket promotion has appeared on a lot of American Express cards.

If targetted, you will receive £10 statement credit when you spend £50 at a participating supermarket by 31st December.

BA Amex cardholders may have an alternative version offering 1,000 Avios.

‘Participating supermarket’ means Aldi, ASDA, Co-Op, Iceland, Lidl, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Tesco and Waitrose.

Look out for exclusions, which include supermarket petrol stations and in-store chemists.  Interestingly, the M&S offer works at all stores and is NOT restricted to food spending – I did a £50 M&S clothing spend yesterday and got an email confirming it had triggered the cashback.

There is no mention of whether cumulative spend counts.

Remember that you need to click ‘Save To Card’ under the ‘Offers’ tab of your online statement page, or in the app, to qualify for the offer.
