One of the benefits of having the American Express Nectar credit card is being able to sign up for regular American Express cashback deals.
These run throughout the year. Each is usually worth £5 or £10 or £20 and you would be surprised how quickly they mount up.
The only rules are:
you must register for each offer online before making a purchase, and
you can only benefit from each offer once per credit card
You can also take part in most of these offers if you have a different American Express card instead of the Nectar one.
What is especially good about these deals is that they double up with any other promotion or coupon you have. The ASK Italian deal (£10 back on £45 spend) will pay out even if you used a discount coupon, for example, as long as you charge £45 to your American Express card.
How to access your cashback
Is your card issued directly by American Express?
If you have an American Express Nectar credit card or any other card issued directly by American Express, log on to their website at americanexpress.co.uk. On your statement page, click on the ‘Offers’ tab which appears towards the bottom of the page.
You will see a list of cashback deals. Click ‘Save to Card’ and you are automatically registered. Your cashback will appear on your statement within a few days of making a purchase.
These are the most popular offers that I can currently see on my card – you will see some but not all of these deals:
Holiday Extra – 15% cashback, expires 2nd October
Sunglass Hut – £20 off £100 spend, expires 9th October
David Clulow Opticans – £20 off £100 spend, expires 30th September
ASK Italian – £10 off £45 spend, expires 2nd September
House of Fraser – £10 off £50 spend, expires 31st July
Gett Taxi – £5 off £15 spend, expires 21st August
Eurostar – £20 off £60 spend, expires 24th July
Is your Amex card issued by MBNA, Lloyds or Barclays instead?
If so, you can still take part.
You need to visit the American Express Connect website here and register.
As you can see, these deals are very easy to earn. ANY purchase at a qualifying retailer counts, even purchases of gift cards! Gift cards are a good way of taking advantage of these discounts now even if you don’t plan to make a purchase immediately.
