Hi all,

I think I have done £141 over the sign up bonus requirement but amex thinks I have another £28 to go. I excluded the membership fee, any refunds, £50 harvey nicks and £150 uk dining credit (but included excess above). Also excluded any amex credit from amex offers i.e only included net spend.

Is it a timing thing? I know it is a small difference and I can and have another £50 on pending payment but given amex messed up my account recently and I’m not expecting the SUB to post automatically I wanted to
start the 6-8 weeks chase as soon as possible.

any offers rebate should be excluded, cash is excluded but you can do paypal transfers to help you achieve the target if you are struggling or prepay bills on your credit card. if you call customer service or speak with them trhough chat they should help
