    Amex Credit Card Blagged Deal 30th Nov 16 at 2:58 PM
    Hi guys, we're featuring a new exclusive offer on the site that whilst perhaps not being suitable for everyone, we feel might be a good deal for some of you;

    Spend £1,000 on the Amex Rewards* credit card in the first three months and you'll get a bonus 10,000 points, worth £50 in vouchers at retailers such as Amazon and M&S.

    Points can take up to a month to hit your Amex account (though we've seen 'em applied on the day you hit the trigger spend). This offer is only available through our link or at MoneySupermarket (we're part of the same group). As soon as your points are in your account, you can convert them into retail vouchers, frequent flyer points, hotel schemes and more.

    If you're having issues with this card you can contact Amex by phone on 0800 169 6767.

    If you're still struggling, you can post on this thread, below, or reach us via direct email on:

    £50 in vouchers would be an absolutely terrible way to use 10,000 MR points. For comparison, I used mine for Delta SkyMiles.

    A return ticket is about 60k SkyMiles to most US destinations. I can easily use this on a flight I'd pay £800 for (and often more, I'm taking a low estimate there). 800/60000 = 1.33 pence per point. Compared to the 0.5 pence per point in your example.

    Seriously, never, ever use MR for cash, cash equivalent or goods redemptions. The value is awful compared to transfer partners!
