5 prizes of 200,000 Miles to celebrate our 20th anniversary in the UK

We're giving away 5 prizes of 200,000 Miles to celebrate our 20th anniversary in the UK

As part of our ongoing service to customers, we wanted to let you know that every transaction you make on your Diamond Club Credit Card Account between 1 November and 30 November 2013 will automatically enter you into a prize draw to win 200,000 Miles.

We have provided you with the prize draw rules below - please read them carefully.

As a reminder, you'll earn destinations miles every time you use your Diamond Club Credit Card Account. You'll earn 2 destinations miles for every £1 you spend with your Diamond Club American Express® Credit Card from MBNA and 1 destinations mile for every £1 you spend with your Diamond Club Visa Credit Card.

How desperate are they to get rid of points?!?!

Should I reduce my threshold for using the card even further? I already seem to be using it for some £2.50 transactions!

I also got the email for my AAdvantage MBNA cards, so it's not just a surplus of BMI miles they're trying to get rid of...

Not all Diamond Club credit cards qualify.

If I understand the T+Cs correctly, only AmEx and Visa cards qualify, so that would exclude my Diamond Club MasterCard.

Oh well, I'll just have to make some transactions with my AAdvantage AmEx ...

I'm guessing mine isn't one of the ones that qualify, cos I'm getting 2.5 per Amex £.
Shame

If you have a bmi Amex you qualify, because for some reason Amex is sponsoring this! You also get entered if you spend on your bmi Visa (as it accompanies the Amex), but not a bmi MasterCard (as they were issued standalone).

You are correct - I didn't get the email but Mrs Steve did, and she has the same cards as me (I applied for both of us at the same time) - it's probably in my spam folder somewhere.
