A new American Express cashback offer may be showing on some, all or none of your cards. You need to look under the ‘Offers’ tab on the online statement page for every card you hold.
You will receive £5 cashback when you spend £30 at Marks & Spencer by 26th April.
The biggest snag is that Simply Food stores are excluded.
You can use it at food halls inside standard Marks & Spencer stores which is what I’ll be doing.
EDIT: M&S changed the rules of this promotion overnight. It is now only valid on online orders (although I will give it a try anyway when I’m next in Simply Food).
There is no mention of whether cumulative spend is allowed, although it usually is with Amex cashback offers.
The offer appears widespread, with the number of registrations capped at 50,000, but we only have it on my wife’s American Express Preferred Rewards Gold card. There is no sign of it on my Platinum or either of our British Airways cards.
PS. If you missed it, take a look at our recent article on the top 10 reasons why you should get the American Express Platinum card.
