Amex are doing more offers for their Cardholders.

Instead of foursquare, its now with the xbox and its much better in my opinion.

To get access to the offers, you need an Xbox 360, and you just need to go to the dashboard on the Xbox and it is one of the advertisements. Click on it and it should lead you to a app/page with instructions on how to set you card/account up. You may need to be a Xbox Live Gold member.

You may find it difficult to find it but if you go in the games section of the dashboard and click a few options, it is hidden somewhere in there if its not on the main screen.

The offers available to Amex holders:

1)You can get £10 absolutely free straight away by loading the offer.
2) £25 for completing Halo 4 on Normal or greater difficulty
3) Complete a mission on Halo 4 and get £25, when you spend £50 at PC World
4) Spend £10, get £10 at Cineworld
5) Spend £50, get £25 at Top Man
6) Spend £50, get £25 at Dixons Travel
7) Spend £50, get £25 at Carphone Warehouse

Promotion ends on the 31st December

Note:
Works for those with Lloyds and Virgin AMEXs.
I had a problem getting my Lloyds AMEX to work but I contacted the AMEX UK twitter support and they got it working!

Corporate cards and Prepaid cards don't work.

Some people seem confused but 'sillw' comment/explanation seems good, so here it is:

'You go to the Amex website that the OP has linked above. You fill in the online form with your name, email address and AMEX long card number. Once you have done that you will receive your unique code via email (about 4 or 5 characters)

You then enter this code into xbox live via dashboard by following the instuctions in the email.

Took me less than 5 minutes from start to end'

You load the offer via your xbox. then go and spend a tenner at cineworld with your linked Amex. A few days later, you will get a £10 credit on your statement. Not sure if you took part in the Foursquare/Amex offers earlier this year but it works the same way!

To link your console/card, visit amexbox.co.uk.

Regarding how it knows, I don't know personally know but assume it crosschecks it with saved data or your achievements.

Sorry, missed that out. Its at PC World if I remember correctly

Thanks

just a heads up that you might also want to register for the small shop promotion also this month with amex enroll.amexnetwork.com/GB/…12/ works like the foursquare app offers but once the card is linked it requires no checking in.

hopefully a link to particapting retailers.. HERE

Sweet, will give this a try.

Where's the cheapest place for Halo 4, or can I complete both achievements within a rental?

cheers just registered will look at rental, what achievements do i need to get

This is hot! OK so how it works is you get £10 statement credit when you 1st sync to your gamertag, and you will get £25 credit if you complete a specific Halo mission within 8 weeks.
However the cineworld, topshop, carphonewarehouse offers you just opt into, you don't need to play Halo 4 to get those offers. But you do to get the £25 credit and also £25 off PCWorld Currys offer.

The offers expire end of the year

There's nothing worth getting at CPW sadly, no itunes vouchers/xbox live points etc. with a decent resale. Shame the PC World/Currys one needs the game achievement otherwise you could get two copies, get the £25 off, complete the game, trade both in and make a mint.

Banned

If anyone wants a Halo 4 achievement send me a message and make a new account.. I'll do it for you.. Have been playing it all day.

Doesn't accept corporate cards

I have the avios duo cards and it will not accept my card details. Says I must ring them, do you know if they are going to sort it out? I tried one of these offers through 4square. Spent a fortune on different things (Nandos, Pizza Express, Tesco) and never got a penny back in return...

Registered for free £10 (_;)

I used my avios amex through the foursquare app and got money back..... not sure why you didn't

I called them and all they told me just to wait as its a new promotion and I should wait till next week. If I still had problems, then call back.

Wait, so can any Lloyds customer get this offer? I'm really confused haha

how the hell do you find the specials link in foursquare to check in and use your card? I already synced my Amex Card, but can't find the Specials link in foursquare

what can one do if they have amex but no xbox? use a friend's or go to a store and log in using that?

how does it actually work. how do i register my card at xbox?

without an xbox, you can't get access to the offers.

Yes, I know but it's driving me crazy
! I used platinum cash back card for the xbox offer and it works.

I synced my Platimum cashback AMEX card and was able to load all the offers onto it. Only crap thing is the chip and pin on my AMEX card has packed up so I have ordered a new one and now I'm being told i'm going to have to sync all the offers back on from scratch including the foursquare ones they also have.

Thanks for the info..... hope my Lloyds AMEX starting working soon!

I'm not impressed with this offer, it's a case of a company not knowing its customers; how many of us who qualify for their 'no limit' charge cards actually play Xbox?

Many no doubt, the average age of a gamer is not the stereotype 15 year old kids, it's actually 28.

I fully agree I'm 40 and it's my best entertainment after a long day at work!

I think you only need a joint income of 30k for the Platinum Cashback. I don't play online as much as I used to but at 25 I still put hours into FIFA and COD so to get my money back (+ more) for playing Halo means i'll give it a go.

Can you use your friend's xbox? I have an amex card but no xbox..

That was easier than I expected. Thanks!

Excellent Thanks OP. My Virgin Atlantic AMEX card seems to have been accepted!

Wasn't planning on getting Halo 4 but might be worthwhile for a £25 achievement...

Great Thanks

Tempted to order/sign up for that Virgin card if Lloyds don't sort this out soon!

Done, great deal! Hope to spend some money at those retailers.

Does anyone know if this works with Cineworld tickets bought online and then collected?
