    This offer has been around for a few days, apparently restricted to recipients of a mailing. However Amex have now cast the net a little wider. The offer has appeared in my online Amex account today with new terms and conditions:



    It could be worth checking to see if the web banner now appears in your Amex account, even if you did not receive the mailing.

    Apparently all one does is click their heels together three times, 'cause the thread title I see says BAEC!

    I saw this on Friday and called Amex Customer Service to clarify that what I saw under my Amex Memebership Rewards logon was the "web banner" referred to in the Terms and Conditions. They conferred with a supervisor and called back to say that if I did not get a direct mail, I would not be eligible for the bonus.

    So, the questions is, Do I feel Lucky?

    And if so, how many MRs am I willing to risk at the 1:1 rate. Cannot do a test and see as the transfer must be by 25th Feb but the bonus, if any, will not be credited until 31st March.

    I'm not sure why you felt the need to call them. The terms and conditions are very clear.

    Clicking on the web banner took me to the page with the terms and conditions on, which really leaves no doubt. The call centre staff at Amex, on the other hand, seem to be very poorly informed about their own promotions.

    If you reached the terms and conditions by clicking on the web banner, I would feel comfortable that the bonus points will arrive, or that I would have good grounds to chase them up with Amex if they did not.

    If I were in that position, I would take a screen shot of the relevant banner. In light of the wholesale confusion round at AMEX towers, I am keeping the brochure they sent until the bonus has posted.

    I have taken screenshots. I would feel a lot more comfortable if I had a brochure as well.

    My reason for calling to clarify is precisely because the promotion has been unclear, and that the terms say the bonus miles will be awarded by BA, so our come back on Amex in the event of a dispute may be non existent.

    i would take a screen shot of the banner, just in case of any dispute.....
    I got it on my account, but OH's did not have it, neither of us received the flyer in the mail.

    Thank you ysb41. I had already checked that the banner did not appear on the MR site if I was not logged in. That it also didn't appear on your OH's infers that I am indeed eligible, although "targeted" is probably the wrong word - it was way too subtle for that!

    200,000 MRs just xferred to BAEC.

    Roll on the extra 80K![​IMG]

    thats a really nice 80K, i wish OH got the offer, coz she has over 200K MR in her account, I hv only just over 100k.

    I am collecting Virgin FC miles as well, so i would tak advantage of the double miles up to 5K offer, and I am am hoping this prom works with the Centurion's 25% bonus offer, that will gain me 125% extra, but only up to 5k though......[​IMG]
