A decent offer recently appeared on the Amex Gold card – spend £200 by 12 April and you’ll get 1,000 bonus Amex Membership Rewards points. This is, amongst many other things, convertible to 1,000 Avios (and then on to 1600 Nectar points, should you wish).
It first seemed that the offer was targeted, but Amex are now widely promoting it. It does now appear that if you have the Amex Gold and check your Cardmember Offers, it should be there for pretty much everyone. If you haven’t got it as an Amex Gold customer, let us know in the comments.
The spend is cumulative, so you can just gently spend on your card for the next month or so, and you’ll get the reward – there’s no need for the £200 to be in a single transaction.
In my case the Amex bonus points posted seriously quickly, just three days after my purchase:
Not yet got the Amex Gold?
Free for the first year and with a 22,000 point sign-up bonus and 2 free lounge entries, the Amex Gold is often seen as an excellent starting point for any miles and points collector. With the above offer running until 12 April, you should also be able to benefit from it if you sign up soon-ish.
If you REALLY want to rack up a serious amount of points though, read this article first. By applying for Amex cards in the right order, you could earn 233,000+ points (worth at least £1,865!) in a year…
