There is an interesting offer from the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph showing on a lot of American Express accounts at the moment.
To see if you are targeted, you need to look under the ‘Offers’ tab on the statement page for each Amex card that you hold. If you see the offer, click ‘Save To Card’.
This is the deal:
Spend £25+ on The Telegraph subscriptions and get a £20 statement credit
Offer valid until 4th April
The reason this is interesting is that The Telegraph has bonus offers running which would combine with the Amex statement credit. This makes the net cost very low.
What are the best value Telegraph subscription packages?
Have a look at The Telegraph subscription website here.
On the basis that you want to maximise the £20 statement credit, these are the ones I liked the look of:
Best deal – a one year digital Student Subscription for just £5 net!
Do you know anyone who is studying and has a .ac.uk or .edu email address? You can buy them (or buy yourself, if you’re a student) a full year online subscription to The Telegraph for £25 via this page.
The cost of a one-year digital Student Subscription is £25. With the £20 Amex cashback, your net cost is just £5. £5 for a full year of The Telegraph app is an excellent deal.
The sign-up page for a Student Subscription is here. There is an option to sign-up via Unidays – ignore that (in case you get charged by Unidays and not The Telegraph) and scroll further down where you can sign up directly.
Best deal for non-students – a one-year digital Standard Subscription for just £30 net!
For non-students, the digital Standard Subscription looks like the best option. This costs £100 for a year.
However, new subscribers receive a £50 Amazon gift card. Add in the £20 Amex cashback and you get £70 back. This means that your net spend for a one year digital subscription is just £30! 58p per week is not exactly a bad deal.
The sign-up page for a Standard Subscription is here (switch to the ‘Pay Annually’ tab).
Best deal for sport fans – a one-year digital Sport Subscription for just £20 net
If you only read the back pages of the newspapers, you might be interested in a one-year digital Sport Subscription instead. Full details are here.
The annual cost is £40 so, after the Amex cashback, you are only paying £20. That said, logically it makes more sense to get the Standard Subscription for an extra £10, after factoring in the £50 Amazon voucher.
With all of these offers, make sure that you pay upfront for the year. £25 needs to be charged to your American Express card by 4th April to generate the £20 cashback.
