The first offer is double earning of valuable Membership Rewards points at certain popular U.K. retailers. Gold card holders will now earn 2 points (instead of 1) per £1 spent at popular outlets including Deliveroo, Esso, Aldi, Superdrug and Currys PC World. As is usually the case with all Amex offers, the offer must first be saved to the card either via the app or online.

This offer is available until 21 November 2020.

The second offer is a bonus of 50% of the value of Membership Rewards points when using “Use Points towards Purchases”. While 50% is indeed a great bonus, we rarely advocate spending Membership Rewards points on anything other than flight or hotel redemptions as that’s where you find the most value.

However, if you have no plans to travel anytime soon and have a lots of points but are short on cash, it might be worth considering taking up this offer. Cardmembers can benefit from this offer until 1 October 2020.
