Forums Payment cards American Express HMRC tax – Amex

  • Howard0181 32 posts

    I need to spend about £3000 on my BA Amex card to trigger the 241 voucher. I have until 20th July.

    I have some ta to pay but my Billhop account (as we know) is now closed.

    Can it be done with a CURVE card? Any other ideas please.

    Amex hasn’t worked with Curve for many years. If you’re only using the card to trigger the voucher and care not for what happens afterwards, buy something worth £3000 and return for a refund once voucher secured and sorted?

    However if you do a refund next year it will be an additional £3,000 as you will start on -£3,000

    For bonuses yes it will go minus, but for 241, no. Plus he is saying he will do the 3k then refund a day/week or so later. VRBO is where I’ve seen this can be done.

    How about booking a BA Holiday and paying up front – or a couple of holidays?

    Could get some nice double tier points, too!

    And 3 x avios on the spend.
