Purchasing which vouchers qualify towards Amex minimum spend ?

  • DreamingOfFirstClass

    Is there a list somewhere detailing which high Street (or otherwise) vouchers count towards minimum spend targets on Amex cards ?

    If not, could you wonderful people start one by posting in here ?!
    Along with any stipulations such as “only if bought in store” etc….

    On a related note, would buying Hilton or IHG points for example count as qualifying spend when trying to hit minimum spend targets ?



    Not sure any high street vouchers are excluded from points earnt on Amex. If you’re unsure just add a little bit of shopping on to the same transaction as vouchers / gift cards.
    Purchasing Ihg or Hilton points usually goes through Rpoints site which I think do not allow Amex. I even find curve gives me issues so I tend to go visa /mc direct.


    Why would any high street vouchers be excluded from Amex points earning? It’s just classed as regular spend. There’s nothing dodgy about purchasing a high street voucher with an Amex card.
