American Express is back with yet another generous offer for cardmembers with The Platinum Card.

If you spend £400 on travel through the American Express Travel portal, you will receive £100 cashback (so a 25% discount).

You might think that Amex Travel is reserved for only certain travel purchases and you might struggle to use it for a normal weekend trip, to, say Spain. While Amex does have platforms for booking luxury hotels you can use Amex Travel to book hotels, experiences, even budget airfares.

To take advantage of this generous offer you’ll need to save it in your American Express online account. It’s limited to the first 20,000 cardmembers to save the offer so act quickly. The conditions once you’ve saved it are otherwise quite generous – you can reach the £400 spend over multiple transactions – it doesn’t have to all be in one purchase.

Also, you have a month to make the purchase(s) though your actual travel dates can be at anytime. Makes sure you pay in advance though if your travel is after 21 November 2021 to make sure you receive your cashback.

American Express have rolled out an impressive number of offers for Platinum and British Airways cardmembers this year, from a £200 fine dining credit to various cashback offers with major hotel groups.

All U.K. American Express cards come with Amex Offers — whether it’s a core card like The Platinum Card from American Express U.K., a small business card like The Business Platinum Card from American Express U.K. or a cobranded card like The British Airways American Express Premium Plus Credit Card from American Express U.K. Essentially, Amex Offers are a way for American Express to reward you with additional points, miles or even a statement credit in return for making a purchase with your Amex card.

It’s one of the reasons these are amongst our favourite points and miles cards here at TPG UK.
