Amex 2 for 1 - reducing spend to 15K

I've just found out that from October, the spend needed on my BA Premium Amex card to trigger the 2 for 1 voucher is being reduced from 17.5K to 15K.

Great news you would think, but unfortunately I've been very carefully controlling my spend so not to trigger the voucher until January when I will have 100K + miles. This will now mean that I will get the voucher straightaway as my spend by this month will take me over 15K. We want to use the voucher for a trip in Nov or even as late as Jan 07. They have given me no notice of this - I just happened to spot it on the BA site yesterday.

Do you think they will extend the validity in view of the circumstances.

BA normally extend validity for 6 months anyway if you call and ask them...especially if you explain the situation and how it's great but it caught you out and you'd been working towards a Jan '06 voucher for a Jan '07 trip, I'm sure they will oblige.

No mention of any changes at:

I'm off to ba.com to see if the Prem+ benefits too...!

Edit: Can't find any mentions of this (even on http://www.americanexpress.com/uk/br...ITY_webmessage from the EC homepage in 'News'). Sue, where did you read about it?

Phil, hopefully the link below will work

http://www10.americanexpress.com/sif...5,12709,00.asp

If not go to American Express.com and look under card member offers (i did a search for Companion Tickets).

Thanks for the advice - I'll keep my fingers crossed that they will allow me to defer in view of the circumstances.
