American Express has launched another £100 giveaway this morning for holders of The Platinum Card.
You will receive £100 statement credit when you spend £100 at a combination of Waitrose, John Lewis, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Deliveroo.
Based on how the offer worked last time, you don’t need to spend the full £100 to get the credit. If you spend £25 in Waitrose tomorrow, you will immediately get a £25 credit. This continues until you hit the £100 cashback cap.
The offer is only available on primary cards, not supplementary cards.
Both online and in-store purchases count.
You have until 22nd December to spend your £100.
You MUST register, it seems
Looking at the American Express website, it seems that you need to save the offer to your Platinum card for it to be valid.
Go to the Amex website here, log in to your Platinum account, find this offer under your ‘Offers’ tab and save it. You’re sorted!
The small print
There are a few exceptions to what you can buy, but nothing major:
- Waitrose & Partners exclusions: Cellar, Florist, Garden, Pet, Cookery school, foreign currency, Gift Section
- Harvey Nichols exclusions: International delivery, gift cards, vouchers and dining within restaurant
- John Lewis & Partners exclusions: Finance and Insurance products, Parking and John Lewis Opticians
- Selfridges exclusions: International delivery
The most inconvenient of those is probably the inability to use the credit in the restaurants at Harvey Nichols. However, I assume that 95% of people will redeem the credit at John Lewis / Waitrose or Deliveroo anyway.
You can also get around the Harvey Nichols restriction by buying a gift card elsewhere in the store and then spending it in the restaurants! Gift cards are, in reality, only excluded when ordered online.
Don’t forget to register before you buy!
