How it works
Amex Offers are available to anyone that holds an American Express credit or charge card.
To take advantage you just need to log into your American Express online account or mobile app, select an offer and click 'Save to Card'.
Then when you make an eligible purchase in store or online, the statement credit will be added to your account.
It probably goes without saying, but you'll need to make the payment in full on your American Express card in order to qualify for the statement credit.
Each offer is valid once per card.
American Express credit cards
If you don't have an American Express credit card, you're missing out.
That's because on top of things like statement credits, priority tickets to the big events and other member benefits, they also offer rewards for your everyday spending.
Here are some of the top cards to consider, if you're thinking of making the move.
Amex cashback cards
American Express has two cashback credit cards, which pay you money each time you spend.
The fee-free American Express Platinum Cashback Everyday Card pays 5% cashback in the first three months (capped at £100) and up to 1.25% thereafter depending on how much you spend.
Alternatively there's the American Express Platinum Cashback Card. This also pays 5% in the first three months but is capped at £125 and you can get a flat rate of 1.25% thereafter, or double that in your anniversary month. However, the card attracts a £25 annual fee.

Amex reward cards
If you shop at Sainsbury's, then the American Express Nectar Credit Card is worth a look.
You earn four Nectar points for every £1 spent at Nectar partners or two for every £1 spent elsewhere. If you manage to spend £2,000 within your first three months you'll get 20,000 bonus Nectar points, which is worth £100 in rewards to spend with Nectar partners. The card attracts a £25 annual fee, but this is waived in the first year.
There's also the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card with which you can earn Membership Reward points. You'll earn one point for every £1 you spend. When you spend £2,000 in the first three months, you'll get 20,000 bonus points, which is worth £100 at a range of partners. However, as this is a charge card not a credit card you will have to be able to pay off your balance in full each month.
Amex Avios cards
If airmiles are more your thing, American Express offers two standalone cards which allow you to earn Avios.
First off there's the fee-free British Airways American Express Credit Card, which allows you to earn one Avios for every £1 you spend. You'll get 9,000 bonus Avios (enough for a return flight to Paris or Prague) if you spend £1,000 in your first three months and take out the card before 17th June. Plus each year you manage to spend £20,000 you will get a free companion voucher.
Alternatively there's the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Credit Card. It allows you to earn 1.5 Avios for every £1 you spend, which doubles when you spend direct with British Airways or BA Holidays. You'll get a massive £25,000 bonus Avios if you get the card before 17th June and spend £3,000 in the first three months. Plus you'll qualify for a free companion voucher when you spend £10,000 in a year. However, the card attracts a £150 annual fee.
