There are strong rumours tonight that American Express is about to launch a £200 dining credit for The Platinum Card holders.
You will receive 100% back when you spend at participating restaurants, up to a cumulative £200. Centurion cardholders will receive a £400 credit.
The offer will run from tomorrow until the end of 2021.
EDIT Wed AM: This offer is now live and you can add it via the ‘Offers’ section of your card.
If you’re in London, you’re laughing. The list of restaurants is simply outstanding, from 3-star Michelin restaurants through to more casual groups such as The Ivy.
The Ivy Harrogate is pictured above – there are a fair number of non-London restaurants included although there do seem to be big geographic gaps.
There are over 1,000 participating restaurants across 15 countries. Here is a random London selection for the letter ‘B’:
- Bar des Pres
- Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill
- Bob Bob Ricard
- Brasserie Zedel
- Bread Street Kitchen
- Butlers Wharf Chophouse
…. and that is just ‘B’.
Full details should be released on Wednesday, but you can look at the restaurant list here.
