    Anyone know of any Halal places in London?

    Ate at veeraswamy which was really nice and recently ate at Amaya. Both halal but let them know and they will tell you what particular dish is halal or not.

    Downgraded yesterday after completing the 10k spend via the app after it was showing and then not showing during the statement period and appeared yesterday again.
    Selected the blue Barclaycard Avios but haven’t received any confirmation but I read that the necessary confirmation will take place prior to the beginning of the next statement period. let’s hope that is the case.

    Called today to cancel as coming to my yearly renewal and gave 35k and moved to monthly fee too.

    I believe you are too late – you should have changed to the premium card before hitting the £10k spend let alone £12k

    I had to return something I brought, how long does it take amex to crawl back the offer? And how is it labelled as a transaction pls?

    Had a refund, had hoped that Amex wouldn’t claw it back but did so after a week.

    I am £500 away from the 10k spend in the Free BA card. If I upgrade would I be able to obtain the premium BA card 241 voucher instead of the economy 241 voucher on the Free BA card before my renewal date in Nov?

    Anybody made a payment and received the cashback but then had to do a refund, did Amex take the PayPal cashback once the refund posted?

    I was thinking of purchasing a GC from Harvey Nics in June and then in July and then hoping it tracks and pays out. Still waiting for my Morrisons to be paid out since March 29 on my platinum.

    I pay all my bills at coop using paypoint, council tax, utilities, water and rent if you have a social housing landlord that takes payment via PP.

    read the T & Cs thoroughly as they sometimes may offer a bonus period of X number of points per £ but when buying selected products you will get the normal X points per £.

    I mostly shop via John Lewis and have received most of my points being tracked barring a few chase ups, one change that I have observed is that estore calculates the amount they give out minus the VAT of the total price.

    Looking to make a trip down to the Ivy Tower Bridge to purchase a GC in the restaurant – I have £70 of unused credit left and will put to towards a trip to any of the Ivy restaurants later in the new year.

    That will keep me having the Platinum card for the next 2 months looking to close it as I have hit my £6k spend bonus.

    Is it just the selfridges GC they sell or other branded cards?
