American Express is offering cardholders of its Preferred Rewards Gold Credit Card the opportunity to earn bonus points. In effect, with this Amex Offer, Gold cardholders can earn an additional Membership Rewards point for each pound spent.

Do note that this Offer is only available to the first 55,000 cardholders who save it to their account — so you’ll want to act quickly if you’ve got a Gold Card and want to earn an easy amount of bonus points.

The Offer is valid for pretty much all purchases made with your Gold Card — both in-store and online. According to the terms and conditions of the Offer, the bonus points will appear on your billing statement within five days of qualifying spend, but may take up to 90 days from 6 September 2021.

Ultimately, this is a nice Amex Offer, but not one that is going to be a complete gamechanger. The maximum 1,000 bonus points that you can earn are worth £14 according to TPG’s most recent valuations. However, given that you’ve not got to do anything extra to earn them, this Offer is a no-brainer to enrol in.

Amex Offers are one of the best ways to save cash or earn bonus points on your purchases at select retailers. American Express rolls out new Offers every so often. Before making a purchase online or in-store, it’s best to check your Amex Offers to see if you have one that may be worth enrolling in.

To check if you’re eligible for this Offer, log in to your American Express account and scroll to the Amex Offers section of the page. Locate this offer and then hit “Save to Card.” Ensure that you use your enrolled card in order to trigger the Offer.
