News in brief:

Get £5 Amex cashback on £40 Tesco spend

American Express has launched a 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.

This article explains how to earn Avios at NH Hotels.

Get a 90 day free trial of Amazon Music HD

Whilst off-topic, this is a good deal. Amazon commission is also a decent income stream for us whilst advertising revenue is down.

Amazon Music HD is a ‘not very well known’ premium streaming service. It lets you stream 60 million songs in high definition with an unspecified number in ultra high definition.

Ultra high definition offers up to 10x the bitrate of standard streaming! Standard high definition is advertised as at least double the standard bitrate.

If you sign up via this link by 19th October you receive a 90 day free trial. After 90 days, if you don’t cancel, it renews at £12.99 for Prime members, £14.99 for Amazon customers or £5 per month for existing Amazon Music subscribers.

Check first your streaming device can handle HD and UHD streams before you sign up.

    Tesco not on mine 😢

  • Premgenius says:

    Tesco offers not on the Gold Card but have it on Cashback Card.

    With the Amazon Music HD no 90-day trial offer, even though have never used it before but instead they are offering £9.99 per month for 90 days instead

  • BJ says:

    Somebody now routinely posts amex offers on the heat and cold site soon after they are released. The better ones also appear on the Lewis site. Thus, more important than ever to register as soon as you see or hear about them on HfP as I think people still post them here quicker.

    Although not sure if mentioned here already, I’ve also received Spend £350 or more, get £100 back @ Leading Hotels of the World

  • Ian says:

    not any of my 6 cards 🙁

  • Andrew says:

    No Tesco on my platinum card. Amex really need to stop offering all the good offers to gold and give platinum members something decent for our £600.

    • QwertyKnowsBest says:

      Platinum and have this offer and get most offers l read about.

    • BSI1978 says:

      Isn’t just as likely/possible that if you typically favour Tesco then you won’t get the offer?

      Usually find this happens with the grocery retailers

  • Mike says:

    Tesco not on my BAPP

    • MikeL says:

      Not on our 3 cards – gold, blue (Just downgraded) and premium . We shop regularly at Tesco so clearly we’re not being targeted for that very reason. Typical Amex 🙄. My premium card has been going for about 10 years and we now have 4 companion vouchers expiring from next March through to 2023.. Time for a CC rethink. I just don’t see us travelling anytime soon, especially westbound.

  • Andy S says:

    Tesco on my plat. To qualify does the card have to be used directly at the till, or will it still trigger via Pay+
