Hmmm I’ve learned something new. I’m coming up to my renewal and was offered 10k Avios for £3k spend in 3 months which I accepted. How ever they said they can’t apply the retention offer as I accepted one 10 months ago.

Didn’t know you can only accept a retention offer once in a 12 month period. A little annoying as why tell me their system is offering me 10k Avios for 3k spend if it won’t let them apply it 🙁

I think what the agent means is that 10k Avios for £3k spend is the standard offer, but you aren’t eligible. It seems rather over optimistic to expect a retention for this card more than annually or indeed at all. It doesn’t seem a great hardship to wait another couple of months unless you are wanting to cancel.
