Lightbulb Tracking Amex promotions UK

Hi All

Happy New year.

I just added a supplementary card to my Gold Preferred and was very pleased to hear that there was a current promotion which will add 5000 points for this.

Hope it helps

Was this confirmed to you ?

My understanding was that the 5K for a gold supp was a targeted offer, whereas the 10K for a plat sup was via an open web link.

Am looking forward to the points posting from that - don't know if anyone has had them yet? IIRC they were due in March according to the T&Cs.

I have just phoned up regarding how long points from a supplementary Gold card take to post (up to 90 days but usually less) - guy on the phone confirmed that it wasn't a targeted offer and any supplementary Gold card would earn 5K.

Someone else told me this today too. However, it seems a bit odd given that Amex has not emailed everyone, only some, and that the application page does not show the offer.

That said, 90 per cent you would get them if you pushed even if they do not post.

Up to 40% off sale again

AMEX Travel are once again offering up to 40% off hotels when booking through them.

Link is here.

Not sure on what normal rates are, but there are some good advertised discounts in Mexico.

Otherwise, discounts seem closer 20% but not bad.

I just want them (and a recent referral) to post in time for the next (overdue?) MR > Avios conversion bonus!

Thanks for that.

It appears at the moment the optimum Amex application is:-

Get your partner to refer you for a Gold car (9K+22K). Apply for a supplemental card for your partner (5K). Once the bonuses have posted, apply to upgrade your gold card to a plat card (15K) - costs 450. Apply for a supplemental card for your partner (10K).

In total, not including any points for spend, that's 61K. If you have other household members, then you could push the boat out and do up to 4 more supp cards on the plat account, getting another 40K points. In theory, you could end up with over 100K points, for the 450 plat fee.

Just got an email for an AmEx Travel offer on my Cent. Spend 400 (on pre-paid hotel, flight, car or experience) and get a 200 statement credit! That's not too bad... Shame I just booked about 10k's worth of travel through them last week!

Perhaps there are similar offers for Plat/Gold.

Enrolment required via link in the email.

The following Merchant Offer Terms are specific to the Merchant Offer above:
When a Centurion member spends 400 or more in single transaction on flights, hotels, car hire or experiences on their Centurion Card online at American Express Travel by 26 February 2015 they will receive a one-off 200 statement credit. Offer excludes cruises and FINE HOTELS AND RESORTS. Offer limited to one 200 statement credit per account. The statement credit will be issued within 3-5 business days of the qualifying spend but may take up to 8 weeks. UK only.
