If you are looking to stock up on champagne for Christmas, an interesting offer was flagged up in the comments section this week by babyg.

Many American Express cards currently feature an offer from wine merchant Laithwaites. Their home page is here.

You will receive £20 cashback when you spend £75 online by 17th November.

Champagne deals from Laithwaites

Opinion varies about the quality of the wine sold by Laithwaites, which is virtually all under ‘house’ labels. This makes it difficult to compare pricing.

However, it does stock a range of branded champagnes, beers and spirits. Many of these are already reduced before factoring in the Amex cashback.

Here is the champagne home page.

Of the current special offers, you have:

  • Champagne Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée (£29.99, was £39.99)
  • Champagne Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut (£32.98, was £42)
  • Champagne Louis Roederer Brut Premier (£32.98, was £43.99)
  • Champagne Deutz Brut Classic (£33.99, was £40)
  • Champagne Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut (£34.98, was £44.99 – note that this bottle only comes up if you seach ‘Bollinger’ or click here, it is not on the champagne page)
  • Champagne Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve (£39.99, was £45)
  • Champagne Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé (£41.96, was £46)
  • Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012 (£41.98, was £55)
  • Champagne Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut (£48.98, was £60)
  • Champagne Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle Iteration 24 (£105, was £125)
Bollinger special offer

Top up with beer if necessary

It is relatively easy to mix and match two bottles to hit £75 and trigger the cashback.

The person who flagged had bought two Bollingers for £69.96 and topped it up with £5 of bottled beer from this page.

Delivery is a flat £7.99 per order to UK addresses.

The Laithwaites home page here. Don’t forget to save the Amex cashback offer before ordering. The Amex cashback deal requires your card to be charged by 17th November.

    Why have you posted a picture of the Bollinger Grande Année 2007 on the HFP Instagram page for this article when Laithwaites don’t even sell that. They do sell the 2012, but at £95 a bottle I’m not sure it warrants the word “cheap” in the headline for the post!

    • TGLoyalty says:

      It’d be £75 with this deal so it’d be cheaper.

    • Mike says:

      Having drunk both I’d rather pay £95 for a bottle of 2007 than pay £75 for a bottle of 2012…

      • Harrier25 says:

        I’d rather not drink champagne at all. It”s nasty stuff. Give me a nice glass of red wine instead.

        • TGLoyalty says:

          While I’m not bothered by it much I find some taste like piss but others can be very moorish.

          • Harrier25 says:

            You find that it’s a status thing. Some are happy to drink sparkling piss as long as it costs at least £50 + a bottle. I’m just happy with a nice £10 bottle of French, Spanish or Italian red.

          • TGLoyalty says:

            Agreed!

  • Sam says:

    Quick thank as I did exactly the same.

  • YC says:

    Anyone got Blue Light discount to work with champagne?

    Virgin Money are giving a supposed luxury 12 case if you switch to their current account through their switch service.
