Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

American Express launches luxury shopping cashback offers

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

A raft of American Express cashback offers for high-end retailers have appeared on cards. 

Some, all or none of these offers will appear in the ‘Offers’ section of your online American Express statement.  Remember that you need to click ‘Save to Card’ to register – participation is not automatic.
