Bicester Village, the designer outlet centre in Oxfordshire, is offering triple Avios (15 Avios per £4 spent) during October as part of its ‘private sale’ promotion.
On top of this, boutiques are offering special discounts if you register in advance. Participating stores are offering one of the following:
- 10% off when spending up to £99 and 20% when spending £100+, or
- 20% off when spending up to £199 and 30% off when spending £200+, or
- 20% off when spending up to £499 and 30% off when spending £500+, or
- 20% off when spending £900+, or
- 20% off with no spending limit, or
- 30% off with no spending limit
To find out which boutiques are offering what discount, check the T&Cs on the Bicester Village website here.
If this wasn’t enough to get you down there, American Express has now added a cashback deal.
If targetted, you will receive £40 cashback when you spend £300 in Bicester Village by 1st November. The participating boutiques are here. I assume that cumulative spend counts although it is not stated directly.
(It is worth noting that the document states that Bicester Village gift cards are included in the offer. This means, presumably, that if a boutique is not participating, you could pop out to buy a gift card and then go back to redeem it!)
For clarity, this WILL stack with triple Avios and the ‘private sale’ discounts, which is a very attractive combination.
You need to look under the ‘Offers’ tab on the app or online statement page for EACH of your American Express cards. If you have this offer, you must click ‘Save to Card’ to activate it.
Full details of how to register for the private sale, and how to claim Avios, are in this HfP article about Bicester Village. You can also register by clicking the ad above.
