my suspicion was correct.

Annoying, because I want to cancel the supp card, upgrade to platinum, get 5 supp cards (50K MR) and decide whether paying the fee is worth keeping the card long enough to spend 1k on it (15K MR), which I suspect it will be...all before the end of Feb

My platinum account is showing a promotion of 100 credit on a 300 online amex travel purchase on flights, hotel or car hire in the scrolling adverts towards the right of the screen. I have registered successfully it but when I tried other cards it says "Unfortunately this campaign is by invitation only" so it looks as though it is targeted at Plats. Looking at the URL it may be unique to accounts and contains "Platenroll" so I am not going to post the link. Book by 26th Feb.

I just tried registering on my wife's supplementary card and this has registered Ok. wmaciej will go against my initial concern to try and help. The offer is limited to 6600 registrations.

The link is:

Amex Plat 100 off 300

I'd very much like to take advantage of this 100 rebate. Anyone have a list of airlines that are bookable with amex travel?? Most of my LH travel is redemptions, so id be most interested in ryanair, easyjet, monarch, etc.

I'm fairly sure none of them as I was looking for Easyjet and Ryanair flights a while ago for a previous offer. The rebate is for online bookings so give it a go and see how you get on.

easyJet is now available through the GDS so should come up - they are on Expedia now for example. Whether the cheapest tickets are there is a different question.

I've successfully asked them to add an airline previously! The circumstances were a little different though: Air Transat (Canada-UK 'value' airline) flights were appearing on the US version of Amex Travel but not UK. I dropped them a message and within 24 hours Air Transat flights were searchable on UK Amex Travel.

Only one datapoint but when looking recently for cheap return tickets to London, shorthaul economy, AMEX was more expensive than BA.com even taking the 100 into account. Make sure you check the price elsewhere too.

Any idea how long it takes, the spend hit my Lloyds card end of December, even though purchase was at start of December?


Also, I did not receive the 10 cardmember offer for a Ryanair spend back in September on my Lloyds Amex. Anyone know if Lloyds are any good if chased on these offers? I am thinking given the timeframe and the fact I used my Lloyds card, it might be more effort than it is worth.. Must remember use Amex issued cards in future for these offers...

Well I phoned Lloyds and the agent was not very helpful. He claimed these offers would be for Amex issued cards only and could not see any promo on my account. Who do I contact to sort this out?

Update: I found this contact form which has an option to contact Amex for missing statement credits including on Lloyds, TSB and MBNA cards. Should do the trick for Amex Travel promo at least: https://sync.americanexpress.co.uk/T...ustomerService

Same here today, with Lufthansa flights. AMEX Travel was 120 GBP more expensive than booking onto the the LH website.

Well, I phoned up earlier today to cancel a supplementary Gold card in anticipation of upgrading to Platinum and made the comment that the 5K MR bonus for setting up that Gold hadn’t yet been issued. The agent looked through the T&Cs, said that I would receive the bonus, put a note on the account saying she’d told me they would be issued…now, having checked my MR account, the points have been issued in the past hour or so, along with a referral bonus I’d been waiting on! Not a bad day

As an aside, once I upgrade to Platinum, can I still refer people for a Gold card? Also, can people confirm that supplementary cards are sent to the main address? I've only ever had supplementary cards for someone at the same address.

I have a similar offer on my Cent account, except it's 200 credit on 400 purchase and above on flights, hotel or car hire.
