American Express has launched a batch of new ‘100% cashback’ offers this morning.

Unscientifically, the offers appear to be targetted at free cards and the cheaper paid cards, such as the Nectar American Express and Platinum Cashback.

I don’t have any of them across the many cards in my family, but we only have the pricier fee-based cards.

Rhys has them on his American Express Rewards credit card. The person who sent me the screenshot below has them on his Amazon Business American Express and the no-longer-available Platinum companion credit card.

This is what you should see:

Most of these will involve visiting a major railway station in order to use them. Millie’s Cookies has an online option (although, erm, the website doesn’t appear to accept Amex!) and can also be found in many shopping centres.

All of these brands are owned by the same company, SSP Group, which dominates airport and railway food operations. Don’t think that the food outlets at Heathrow or St Pancras compete with each other, because they don’t …..

The offers run to mid February, but you should register now. Millie’s Cookies, for example, is restricted to the first 10,000 people to register although Upper Crust will accept 30,000. I am guessing that American Express is underwriting this offer to a significant degree.

    Nothing on my free BA or Plantinum Amex cards.

  • Colin says:

    Saved all of them on my rare AMEX Blue card

  • Lilly says:

    So this is on my MR credit card but not my charge card or my BA card. I understand not, but I will take it!

  • Nick says:

    Can find lots of different pasty shops on Google Search but no website for “The Pasty Shop”. Where are they? (no locations on Amex cards saved offers either)

  • Euston says:

    Be careful — Pasty Shop in Euston Station bills as ‘Burger King’. Seriously!
