We’ve already covered the excellent Amex offers for discounted Eurostar and accommodation that card holders can access this month, but there also some very good discounts for eating and drinking too – particularly in London!
If you have an American Express card actually issued by American Express (BA, SPG, Gold/Plat, Nectar etc), the easiest way to access most of the offers is simply to login to your account, click on Offers and then click “save to card”.
If your American Express card is issued by MBNA/Barclaycard/Lloyds, or for some reason the offer isn’t showing on your American Express account, you should be able to sign up using the links to the Amex Connect pages below:
“Valid until 31/07/2016. Save to Card to get a £25 statement credit on a transaction of £50 or more when purchasing food or beverages at Cartizze Bar by 31 July 2016. Valid once per Card. Terms and payment restrictions apply.”
The Cartizze Bar is a luxurious Italian influenced cocktail bar in Mayfair, just a few minutes walk from Bond Street or Oxford Circus Stations.
Prices are more or less what you would expect at a nice place in that part of London – in other words, not cheap. That said, most cocktails seem to be around the £12.00-13.00 mark so it could be (a lot) worse. Tasty sounding snacks like San Danielle ham wrapped figs with truffle honey, salt and pepper squid, and burrata flatbreads are between £5.00-8.00.
If you like oysters they have a £1.00 ‘Oyster Happy Hour’ between 5pm-6pm Tuesday to Sunday, which is a great deal.
Spend £50.00 (pretty easy to do…) and everything is basically half price after the Amex rebate, which makes the prices excellent. I’ll certainly be popping in myself at some point for a few drinks!
[ I had a few issues getting the offer loaded to my cards, because when I was signed into my Amex Connect account it no longer showed up under the ‘Entertainment’ section. If you have similar issues, the trick is to sign into your account and then paste the following link directly into your browser: https://network.americanexpress.com/connect/uk/en/doe_offer_detail.html?offer=GCOR_163294851 ]
“Valid until 30/06/2016. Save to Card to get a £25 statement credit on a transaction of £50+ in-restaurant at Mayfair Pizza Co by 30 June 2016. Valid once per Card. Terms & payment restrictions apply.”
If you fancy something a bit more substantial to soak up the cocktails from Cartizze, the Mayfair Pizza Company is just upstairs. The pizzas look decent, and the prices are actually quite good – take 50% off courtesy of Amex and you’re in for a cheap date.
Combine both offers, and a couple could have a lovely night out in Mayfair for ~ £50.00 – which is pretty tough to beat!
Important Note: The Cartizze offer is valid through to the end of July, while the Mayfair Pizza Company offer finishes at the end of June.
“Valid until 31/07/2016 Save to Card to get a £20 statement credit on a transaction of £100+ at participating UK D&D London locations when you book and dine by 31 July 2016. Valid once per Card for the first 10,000 Cardmembers to save. Terms apply.”
Clearly not as generous as the other two offers above, but worth pointing out because D&D have some good places in London like Coq D’Argent, 100 Wardour St, and Michelin starred Launceston Place.
If I was heading to a D&D restaurant anyway then £20.00 is a nice rebate, but it wouldn’t make me go out of my way to visit.
Anything outside of London?
If you aren’t going to be in London this summer (or if you are, but just want more deals!), Amex hasn’t forgotten you:
