Amex / PayPal cashback offer

    Sorry if this question has already been answered – does this work on supplementary cards? I’ve used my offer, but my wife has a £15 off £70. I have a supplementary card on her account – would that also work to trigger the £15?

    You need to save and use it on the specific card.

    So if she has saved it on her card, she can use it.

    You need to log in to your supp account and save it on your card if you want to use it.

    Thanks – really appreciate the helpful response!

    Yes, did wonder how on earth we need to have six pages on how to spend £100 via PayPal.

    But for some of us it is 11 (or more) X 3 X £70, but still not difficult as long as Wishcard comes through!

    Did you have any issues redeeming wishcard gift cards? I tried and all said card not activated. Bought mine 2 weeks ago.

    I have bought Wishcard using three different amex. Bought Morrisons, Waitrose and Amazon.
    All used with no problem.

    I had this issue – contacted their customer services and they were activated within 2-3 days.

    On player 2’s nectar card I had the spend £70 get back 15 offer (up to 3 times). I have used it 3 times, the first time paid out just fine. The second time it has been more than a week, and the third time was only a few days ago so I could give Amex time. When I went to check my offers, it disappeared, it is not in the saved section (which is where I expected it to be) or the unsaved list (checked just in case). In the used list it has the name of the retailer for where the first transaction was made i.e. not Paypal.

    Does anyone else have a similar experience? Feels like a call to Amex is in my future.

    I made a purchase for £100 on eBay using PayPal 2 weeks ago, offer already saved however no credit . I called Amex and was told eBay transactions do not count , is this true ? If not how can I get the credit from Amex ?

    I bought from eBay and my £100 offer tracked and paid out.

    All of mine have been on ebay. You definitely went via paypal, right? If your amex number is saved it’s very easy to accidentally forget to click on paypal and just click pay directly on ebay. I did it myself (and obviously that time it didn’t qualify).

    I’m late to this party, and seem to have missed this offer. Does it apply to all Amex cards, or do I have to register? I can’t see it listed in my current offers, so perhaps I’ve missed it or it was never offered to me.

    It is the type of offer that you need to register for. If you can’t see it in your list of current offers and you have not already saved it (look in your saved offers) then you have certainly missed it or was never offered it .

    update: I didn’t get around to calling but both credit has turned up. They were being slower than usual it seems.

    Does anyone know if refunds cancel out the £20 for the £100 PayPal offer?

    I’ve ordered a few things to hit past £100 spent (cumulatively) and will be returning some items. Once I return the items, it should still keep me above £100 spent cumulatively. Getting a voucher refund isn’t possible.

    I got a refund a week ago and they have not crawl back the cashback yet. Others said that will happen but you can re do the spend.

    That’s nice, thanks.

    Be aware that it is unlikely you could re-do the spending. Offers do not pop up back in if they are clawed back due to refunds.

    Did my final BT spend today, unlike my others I’ve not had an email from Amex, but really it’s the cashback we want not the email. Let’s see what happens over the next few days, it’s usually taken a few days to show the cashback on the app.

    LNER accepts PayPal. I know I still have some 5% offers on cards, but I wasn’t going to be able to use up the PayPal offer across all my cards in time.

    Also John Lewis accepts them too. Got a nest protect and they gave me a free nest hub too. Not bad for £80 net spend.

    They have popped back on two cards for me and since reused.

    How do you buy the Amazon GCs? Do you need to go to a physical store or can be done online?
