American Express has launched a new cashback deal with Tesco.
You need to check the ‘offers’ section of all of your online statement pages to see if you are targetted. If you are, I recommend clicking ‘save to card’ immediately as this will hit its registration cap of 20,000 cards very quickly. I had it on my Platinum card.
Once registered, you will receive £5 cashback when you spend £40 at Tesco before 30th October.
Even if you normally shop elsewhere, you could quickly pop in and grab a giftcard for use at another retailer you do use.
Remember that Tesco Clubcard points convert to Avios at the rate of 1 Clubcard point (= £1 spent) to 2.4 Avios or 2.5 Virgin Flying Club miles. Find out more at ba.com here and virginatlantic.com here.
Get £50 cashback at nhow and NH Hotels
Amex has also launched some additional hotel cashback deals. Most are quite niche, such as 10% back at Apex Hotels.
In terms of value, the best one is £50 cashback on £180 spend at NH Hotels.
It is valid at participating hotels (click here) across Europe, including the NH and nhow hotels in London.
