NEW: Get £100 per year of Harvey Nichols credit with Amex Platinum

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you have an American Express Platinum card, an interesting new deal has launched today.

You will receive £100 per year to spend at Harvey Nichols stores.

This offer is valid instore and online (click here) and includes selected store restaurants.

Amex has signed a three year deal with Harvey Nichols, meaning that you are guaranteed to receive the credit in 2022, 2023 and 2024 if you retain your Platinum card.

Your credit arrives in two £50 chunks. You will receive £50 back on your Harvey Nichols purchases between January and June, and £50 back between July and December.

The credit is cumulative (within each six monthly period) so you don’t need to spend £50 in one transaction. You can’t carry unspent credit over from one half year to the next.

The credit is only available on primary cards and not supplementary cards. Spending by a supplementary cardholder will not trigger the cashback on the primary card, according to the small print.

You must opt in to this benefit

This is NOT an automatic offer.

You must visit the American Express website or app, go to your Platinum account page, find the offer and click ‘Save to Card’.

Where can I use my £100 Harvey Nichols credit?

Harvey Nichols currently has UK stores in London, Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester and Liverpool.

The Oxo Tower restaurant in London is also included in the deal as is Zelman Meats, Burger & Lobster and Madhu’s 2 Go in the Knightsbridge store. All Harvey Nichols-branded restaurants are included.

Note that “HN@HOME (OXO at home, Leeds at home and Edinburgh at home)” is excluded, as are purchases from the Oxo Tower restaurant’s website.

If you don’t live near a store, your best bet is probably a purchase of cosmetics or wine from the website. The cosmetics section is here and the ‘food and wine’ section is here.

There is also a ‘gifts’ section here which may be more relevant for a one-off purchase at around the £50 mark.

Don’t forget to register for the offer before making a purchase.

    I’m starting to wonder what’s the point of the Business Platinum really – no Harvey Nicks offer, no £200 restaurant offer.
    I’ve got a discounted laptop bag from Dell and there’s the Free Times/Sunday Times thing, but can’t face reading dismal Rod Liddle and Jeremy Clarkson columns.
    Tempted to bin it and get the Missus to apply for a personal Plat.
