American Express is adding a new statement credit to its Preferred Rewards Gold Card that will be perfect for cardholders who order takeaway. On Thursday, American Express announced that it’s partnered with online food delivery company Deliveroo to give cardholders £10 in statement credits every month.

With the new partnership, cardholders of the Amex Gold Card will be able to get up to £10 back every calendar month by ordering on Deliveroo and paying with their Gold Card. The savings breaks down as £5 back, twice every month, meaning you will have to order Deliveroo twice a month in order to maximise the £10 monthly statement credit on offer.

American Express is not automatically adding the offer to Gold Cards. If you’re interested in taking advantage of the £10 in statement credits every month, you will need to enrol and save the offer to your card like a standard Amex Offer. You can do so on the web version of American Express or via its app.

Do note, however, that you must save the Deliveroo offer to your card by 6 May 2023, which indicates that it will be a benefit of the card for at least two years. In total, that could mean up to £240 in total savings if you maximise this offer for the duration of the two-year period.

According to the terms of the offer, you must spend at least £5 each time and pay with your Gold Card in order to trigger the statement credit. Additionally, any credit not used during a calendar month will not be rolled over to the following month. In other words, if you don’t use the £10 each month, you will lose it.

Unfortunately, supplementary Amex Gold Cards are not eligible for this offer — only the primary cardholder will be able to take advantage. Once you take advantage, the credit should appear on your statement within five business days of qualifying spend, but may take up to 90 days from the transaction date.

Ultimately, this is a really nice addition from American Express in order to create more value for cardholders of its Gold Card. It would have been great if Amex had added this benefit to the Gold Card earlier on in the pandemic when the U.K. was under lockdown and many cardholders were ordering takeaway more frequently. However, it’s better late than never.

The Amex Gold Card is one of our favourites for beginners into the points and miles hobby, given its welcome bonus, earn rate, benefits and no fee for the first year. Currently, the card is offering a welcome bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points after spending £3,000 in the first three months. You’ll earn 1 Membership Rewards point for every pound spent, as well as 2 Membership Rewards points per pound on every airline purchase directly with an airline or in a foreign currency and 3 Membership Rewards points per pound spent with American Express Travel.

In addition to the new Deliveroo monthly credit, cardholders get an additional 10,000 Membership Rewards points every year when they spend at least £15,000 in the 12-month period of the card anniversary. The card comes with an annual fee of £140, though it’s waived for the first year. There’s a representative APR of 56.6% and a variable purchase rate of 22.2% with an assumed credit limit of £1,200.
