American Express offers some cardholders special promotions where you can earn bonus points or cash back on your purchases, simply known as Amex Offers. When you register the offer to your card and meet the spending requirement, you’ll be on your way to bonus points or extra cash. With this Amex Offer, you can earn bonus points on purchases made at several popular retailers.

More specifically, you will earn 2 additional Avios for every £1 spent at Tesco, Waitrose & Partners, Marks & Spencer, Deliveroo and Apple. The bonus earning applies to purchases both made in store and online for Tesco, Waitrose and M&S, while only for online purchases with Apple and Deliveroo.

It appears as though the 2 Avios you’ll earn as part of this Amex Offer are in addition to the 1.5 Avios you earn on every pound spent with The British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card. So, on eligible purchases made with the participating retailers, you earn 3.5 Avios per pound spent with this Offer.

For example, if you made a £450 purchase at Apple, you’d earn 1,575 Avios by using this Amex Offer on your BA cobranded card. Based on TPG U.K.’s most recent valuations, those Avios are worth £17.

Where this Amex Offer comes even more lucrative is when pairing it with the potential earning from BA’s shopping portal. If you made the same £450 purchase in the example above through BA’s eStore portal, you would earn an additional 5 Avios per pound with Apple. So, in total, you would get 3,825 Avios for the purchase. Based on TPG U.K.’s most recent valuations, those Avios are worth £42. That’s a great return for purchases you were already planning on making — especially those at the supermarket.

You’ll earn the bonus Avios for each time you spend with the participating retailers, and there is no cap on the number of bonus Avios you could potentially earn as part of this offer.

The offer is valid through 12 September 2020. The terms and conditions state that some purchases are excluded from the Amex Offer, such as florist purchases at Waitrose. So, you’ll want to read the fine print before making a purchase.

While we spotted this offer on The British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card, it’s worth noting that not all offers are available to all members at the same time, and some offers may have different savings or cash-back amounts. The terms and conditions state that this offer only applies to those cardmembers who were targeted.

To add this Amex Offer to your card, log in to your Amex account and scroll to the bottom of the page and click ‘View All’ in the Amex offers section. Once you’ve found the offer you want, click ‘Save to Card’ and be sure to use that card on your eligible purchases.
