Even though we live in the country famous for its tea-time, most of us do appreciate a cup of freshly brewed coffee (or don’t function without it) and American Express has teamed up with Starbucks to help us justify our coffee intake.
Until 19th June American Express will give you a statement credit of £1 when you spend £3 or more at Starbucks and the best thing is, you can use this offer up to 5 times.
In order to enjoy this offer, you do need to have an American Express credit or charge card which is directly issued by Amex itself. Log in to your account and save the offer to your card by simply following the link on this website. Supplementary cards can be registered separately.
The offer is also available on Starbucks Card top ups, which is a great way of spending now and benefiting from this offer at a later point.
To be honest, it isn’t fully clear how the offer works. The maximum amount you can get back is £5. However, the picture above says you get £1 back when you spend £3 or more. This means it would take 5 visits, spending £3+ each time, to get the full £5 back.
If you look at the rules, on the other hand, it says you get “a £1 statement credit for each £3 of spend” which implies that a £15 spend in one visit would trigger £5 back.
I am stumped. I will try it out and report back in a few days!
If you are interested in this offer, you should save it to your card rather sooner than later, as it is only valid for the first 75.000 who save it to their card.
Unfortunately American Express cards issued by Barclaycard, Lloyds Bank, MBNA and TSB do not qualify. It must be a directly issued Amex card such as the American Express Nectar card.
