    For the 1st time I think ever I have no new offers this week on either of my AMEX cards, has anyone else experienced similar, very strange

    I had 7 offers expire yesterday, 45 current with 14 due to expire in the next fortnight. The fresh batch didn’t arrive until the 3rd last month.

    (Things are also looking a bit slim on the Sports Loyalty based schemes).

    I have also noticed that the offers are declining by the number now.

    Amex offers are pants now.

    If you are in the business for some new sunglasses or fancy rewriting your Will for the umpteenth time however, you’re in luck.

    A Hilton/IHG offer feels due?

    I look forward to the return, hopefully, of Hyatt which can be added to using Emyr, IHG and Hilton

    A new Superdrug offer appeared on platinum card today, spend £20 get £5 back. Not too exciting but something I could actually use finally

    That’s useful at least. Especially with the NHS staff discount.

    I’ve nothing new today, and ERNIE wasn’t in any way generous today either.

    I’m finding Amex credits very unreliable recently. Still waiting after 3 weeks for my HN credit. My Amex travel 300/100 credit still hadn’t appeared 3 weeks after my booking, at which point I had to cancel the booking anyway so at least I don’t need to worry about that one anymore…!

    I’ve got a feeling it’s because of that dining offer where they listed 10% off at some restaurants. I Imagine if all of those are taking up the spots.

    Platinum offers are pants but BAPP offers are non existent.

    I just realised earlier that a) we are getting low on wine and b) there’s a 3000 bonus avios offer at the Wine Flyer. Best I’ve done for a while!

    Aside from the mandatory dining/HN offers on my Plat, I currently have one offer (Co-op wills, expiring in 10 days). I’ve had the card for ages, used to get loads of offers until recently.

    May be getting to the time to say farewell to Amex.

    I have had no more than 8-9 offers at a time for over 6 months on my BAPP. Not used even one so far. Very disappointing.

    I’m newish to AMEX but have my bonus points and built quite a few up too. I was hoping to convert some to Bonvoy, and when reading up I noticed there is usually a bonus offer in September for a number of transfers. Does anyone know if this is likely to go ahead this year and its worth holding out for?

    Thanks

    The main benefit to me accruing Amex points is the 30% uplift in Hilton Honors points that usually occurs in October. If that were to stop then there’s no benefit over using my Hilton Honors Barclaycard.

    Are you able to tell me why this is a better option for you than transferring to Avios?
    I’m tempted to do the same because unless Qatar stop blacking out school holiday dates, Avios isn’t ordinarily working out that useful for me (BA don’t fly from near me nor go to where I would like). Wondering if yours is a similar reason?

    It certainly does seem that Amex is phasing out offers, which is a shame.

    I would never transfer to Avios. I use my MR points to purchase Hilton Honors points when they run the 30% bonus promotion. I won’t be getting rid of my Amex as it’s a Charge card which I deem fairly valuable at times and if cancelled, will never return. I can just see myself using my Hilton Honors Barclaycard more regularly…especially if Amex stop the 30% bonus promotion with Hilton as well as the offers.

    KLM offer just popped up – fingers crossed the Amex offers person is back from summer holidays!

    Having cancelled my Gold card just a week ago, I was surprised to see today that basically all the Gold offers have appeared on my BA Amex which used to be almost empty of offers. Kicking myself for not cancelling Gold sooner. Of course this may not happen for you…

    There is a big hotel offer from one of the ‘big 3’ chains coming at the end of September – in fact it will be (for Gold/Plat cardholders) the most generous they’ve ever done (BAPP version will be less generous). Was told this yesterday by the company concerned. Amex is part-funding it, interestingly.
