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.
