We have dropped this in as an extra Friday article because it is limited to just 2,000 people and, if we left it until the weekend, quite a few people may have gone out spending without registering for it.
American Express has launched a cashback deal with a large number of Bond Street stores.
The deal even has its own glossy website – click here.
It’s a simple offer. If you register your American Express card and spend £500 across participating Bond Street stores by Christmas Eve, you will receive £50 cashback.
If targetted, you will see the offer under the ‘Offers’ tab on the Amex app or on the statement page of the website. Remember to save the offer to your card and to check for all of the different Amex cards you own.
For once, the wording is very clear – cumulative spending £500 across multiple stores is perfectly fine.
The offer is restricted to 2,000 registrations. This is a tiny number, even if the offer was exclusive to HfP readers, which it isn’t.
Note that not all Bond Street stores are taking part so check out the list carefully. The Fenwick department store is included. Louis Vuitton is not (unsurprisingly, given their ‘no discounts’ policy) but Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Mulberry, Smythson, Ralph Lauren, Rimowa, Tod’s etc are all there.
This offer would double-up with the sales
Whilst the offer ends on Christmas Eve, you should remember that most designer brands start their sales a few days before Christmas.
This could give you an opportunity to pick up a sale bargain with an additional discount.
You can find full details of this offer on the Bond Street website here, but you must register via the American Express app or website.
