    BA Amex Cards: Get 7,000/13,000 BA Miles Bonus! (Refer-a-friend)

    BA Amex Cards: Get 7,000/13,000 BA Miles Bonus! (Refer-a-friend) 12th Jan 08 at 4:08 PM
    Hello All!

    This is my first post to the MSE Forums, I'm a long time lurker, quite shy, haven't posted until now as I haven't had much to share, however that's just changed and thought I would share this with you all in the hope that others will benefit from this offer.

    American Express have a new "Member Get Member" refer-a-friend campaign running. For the British Airways Amex Cards it works like this:

    The person who is applying for the card gets:
    7,000 BA Miles if they're referred & accepted for the Premium Plus card. (Possibly 13,000; see below)
    2,000 BA Miles if they're referred & accepted for for the standard BA card. (Possibly 3,000; see below)


    The person doing the referring gets (for a successful referral):
    2,000 BA Miles if they hold an Amex British Airways card.
    4,000 BA Miles if they hold an Amex British Airways Premium Plus card.


    This compares to the standard 1,000/6,000 'first card use' miles advertised on Amex's site.

    HOWEVER, when my father in law applied for the BA card - he received his 2,000 referral bonus instantly - AND, when he spent on the card for the first time, the 1,000 standard/advertised bonus was also awarded! He is now showing 3,030 miles (the bonus points plus his £30 spend points.) Therefore, although I'm not promising, you could receive upto 13,000 BA Miles for the Premium Plus if referred by a friend! (7,000 refer-a-friend bonus + standard 6,000 first use bonus.).

    Another good reason to get the cards now is, once you have the card, you're more than welcome to refer your parents, inlaws, brothers, sisters, relatives, friends to get their own cards to boost your own BA Miles balance! Think of the possibilities! ;-)

    I'm of course more than happy to be a friend to anyone here and refer you for a BA or BAPP credit card so you can get the bonus miles. Please PM your name and e-mail address and I'll fire you off an email.

    I will be happy to make a donation to charity for each referral, as recommended by this site's rules. I'm thinking £5-10 per referral. This is much higher than the 10% recommended.

    Here is the link for existing cardholders (to refer a friend with):
    http://www.americanexpress.com/uk/mgm/default.cgi

    All the best,
    Speedy

    P.S. it also appears that if you place a Quidco cookie on the Amex site thru following the Quidco link, and THEN use the email link from your friend to signup, you'll be awarded both the bonus miles and the £25 Quidco cashback on top! 13,000 BA Miles is worth £91 based on MSE's loyalty points checker - twice that if you are redeeming a 2-4-1 voucher.

    Hi,

    I recently took out a AMEX card but didn't use the referral scheme. Hopfully someone will use the link below to apply.

    Referral blurb:
    you will receive 2,000 Membership Rewards points if you spend £1,000 in their first three months of Card membership.

    Dude you know very well you're bumping up your referral without actually "bumping" up your post. I suspect this will get deleted again (as it should)
    If you're so keen to thank "ReleaseTheStars", you could very well do so on PM without making a public spectacle of it

I have a referral link (£20 for me) that pays you £10 on top of the 5% cash back (max £100) in the first 3 months. amex.co.uk/refer/carlf6xjb?XLINK=MYCP. I've made £110 on money I was going to spend anyway.

    I'm looking to get the preferred rewards Gold Amex card, but when I do a "practice application", I see ""As an existing Card Member, you may not be eligible for a Welcome Bonus""

    I have a platinum cashback and an Nectar Amex card - can anyone please confirm that I would get the 22,000 Membership Rewards as presumably they're entirely different programmes?
    Thanks

    Hi all, quick question,
    I already have an Amex card, if i refer my wife, we both receive the bonus points. Then if I cancel my card, after 6 months if she then refers me, does this mean we both get the bonus points again?
    And does anyone know if my current points will still remain in my account?

    No mate, doesn't work like that. You could probably refer each other every 6 months but the points definitely won't be in your account as your account is closed and you lose what you don't use.

    Copy and paste the above link for the referral page.



    Use my referral code above for the American Express® Preferred Rewards Gold Credit Card and you will receive.

    An extra 2000 MR points on top of the 20,000 you will have after you spend £2000 on the card in 3 months, so in effect your new card will have generated you 24,000
    (2000 points with your own spending plus the bonus 22,000 points very nice)
    I will recieve 9000 MR points for referring you.



    You can choose any card on offer if the gold credit card is not what youre after.
