Here’s the thing. We have now had some credits from U.K. and overseas dining. Are they now subtracted from the 4K spend. We are trying to total up our near 4K spend, but it’s got meal credits/debits/a refund or two, timing accidental from the PRG. And no tracker at all….and nothing on the statement, but fee charged. Any thoughts pls?

Also would like to know…

If I exclude credits from AMEX offers then I’m over £4k spend . If I include credits as “refunds” then I’m under £4k.

I wouldn’t risk it. I’d personally wait for the Platinum card to arrive. Mine took 2 days from application to arrive.

Recent data point: Upgraded from Gold to Plat. No spend progress bar. 40k MR points arrived as soon as I hit £4k spend.

Already used my £150 foreign dining credit for a lovely meal in Barcelona. Now I need to plan some weekend trips into London to use the Harvey Nichols (eat at Burger & Lobster) & the UK Dining offer.

Ugh I hit the £4k spend but no points…. no tracker either

Have you waited a few days? Tracker is intermittent dont be alarmed

Still early days but I am getting a feeling it wont post automatically…
