    american express "small shops" 5 cashback offer 6th Dec 18 at 5:22 PM
    Others having problems with stores accepting ?

    I remember this time year contacting Amex in frustration as various shops were refusing ....

    First attempt this year ... local cafe that i know stopped accepting amex back in july


    Second attempt a local hairdressers that closed down 5 months ago .

    Been on to amex live chat and got the normal ridiculous waffle about how sorry they are , how hard they try etc.

    Seeing as how they know every minute of every day which retailers they are plugged in to there is absolutely no excuse for their "partcipating retailers list" not to be bang up to date .

    Not going to bother trying any other shops . Waste of time & very embarrassing

    I did see an advert on the tube for this the other day - it was for a hipster coffee place in Shoreditch - but in reflection decided I had better things to spend 10 5 on.

    Did you mean no excuse NOT to be upto date?

    I agree. Have tried several places which have either stopped accepting American Express or are clueless about the promotion even though they are showing on the map as participating. Definitely need to confirm they are doing the promotion. Really puts you off the whole thing.

    Any chance of compo for this failure?


    Because of the promotion I decided to have lunch in a local 'pub that is listed on the Amex website as participating in it. Inevitably, it turns out they no longer accept Amex. So will Amex give me the five pounds I lost?
