    Amex Foursquare promotion

    Amex Foursquare promotion 12th Nov 12 at 9:14 PM
    Amex seem to have brought out more deals for cardholders checking into stores with foursquare. Currently on are:

    10 off a 10 spend in GAP

    25 off a 25 spend in Harvey Nics

    5 off a 20 spend in Argos.


    My question is thus:

    I originally used this back in the early summer when they had offers in Primark, Nandos, Tescos etc. Back then I was using an MBNA Amex. I now have a platinum cashback Amex. Can you Sync more than one card to the same foursquare account? When I try to add the card details to foursquare it just says "good news, account already synced". I am presuming this means the account is already synced to the MBNA card. So is there a way of adding the other cards? (Mrs Miketaff also has a card and so could add that card as well.) Or would I have to create three more foursquare accounts!!!!

    (so that each of my 2 amex cards and the wife's will be synced.)

    Going to London in a few weeks time so 4 x 25 in Harvey Nic's - thank you VERY much Amex!!!!

    Never heard of it before, is it just another spying device for large companies.

    Could somebody help please?
    Is there anywhere I can check what card I have synched please or do I need to ring Amex?
    We have 2 BA cards(same account) different numbers. Are you saying as long as we have our own Foursqaure accounts we can both take advantage of the 10 back for 50 Tesco spend?
    Lastly is Tesco a one off or can I do this offer several times?
    Thank you

    Tesco offer is a one off offer per card. So if you have two different numbered cards, you will be able to do it twice.

    I think I did the tesco offer right (my first ever foursquare/amex) but didn't get an email confirming it worked - how can I tell?

    You don't get an email. For three lots of GAP x 10 and for a Tesco I got a message on the foursquare app thanking me. However, for two lots of 5 at Argos, there was no message on the app, but I still got the cashback a few days later

    Found a NEW foursquare promotion, handy for XMAS!!!!!

    Spend 50 in TESCO and get 10 credit.


    You could combine this with the current spend 20 get 5 voucher off your next shop that is running at Tesco's at the moment. However this offer does end today. (the 5 offer that is)

    Foursquare doesn't work very well, sometimes the Specials show up but often they don't. Usually if you search for Tesco it will find it and display the deal. Yes, you have to check in.

    How much time do you have after loading before you have to pay? E.g. Can you check in and load when you arrive, spend 1/2 hour shopping and then pay? Reason I ask is no mobile phone service at tills!

    And has anyone used Harvey Nichols to buy gift vouchers and got the 25 cashback? I assume they count.

    Apparently Harvey Nichols in London are doing a shopping event tomorrow with Amex which will give you from 10% to 50% off your shop - is a lottery (that's what SA told DH when he went to get his magnum of prosecco). So could potentially save/buy even more.

    Well as I have mentioned before, Mrs MikeTaff went to argos and split the cost of a steamer over two Amex cards but FORGOT to check in to foursquare!!!!

    I went on foursquare that evening (about five hours after the purchase) - checked in to argos and loaded the offer onto the card. (used two different foursquare accounts).

    Two days later - BOTH 5 credits have come through. So it is not the end of the world if you can't or don't check in at the till.
