Found 9th Oct 2013
Simply connect your personal Amex card to tripadvisor and get a £5 statement credit when your next review is posted.

Limited to the first 25,000 posted reviews. Offer valid through 31 December 2013.


The reason for this deal is that American Express members can now link their cards to their TripAdvisor profiles, and any review of a service they buy with their card will be designated as an “Amex Card Member Review.” This will give users of tripadvisor another way to verify that the descriptions they are reading are real.

Nice spot thanks.

Cheers for the free fiver !!

thanks

Never accept American Express. Their outrageous fees mean that only business with huge profit margins can accept them, meaning that that every time you use it, you the user, are being screwed (whether you realize it or not.)

Nothing against American Express personally- their travel insurance is quite good.

TripAdvisor on the other hand...Evil!

I know as a retailer Amex fees must hurt but not sure how I am being screwed as a user, I don't pay any interest and receive approx. £300-400 per year in cashback on my card with no fees at all?

I think he means by the high profit margins. Not really true though. I can buy a products in a supermarket where there is a mixture of profit margins. The price is the same whether I use Amex or visa, so your argument does not realy stack up. I am aware Amex charge retailers, and I think that is unfair, but it should be the retailers who push back to Amex. A few consumers not using their card will not stop Amex charging.

I love amex great deals excellent customer service. What's not to like!!

Why would a consumer be screwed. We get a good deal my friend, the business loses out and it's about time the consumer had something go its way. I always use amex when doing rail journeys for example why should they continue to gain profit and consumers lose money!

It says £5 for first published review. I guess the fiver only pays if they accept your entry.

got my fiver straight away and an email from Amex confirming already credited, many thanks to OP.

You sound like a disgruntled business owner/retailer. Maybe a B&B or privately run hotel, by your dislike or Trip Advisor also? IIRC Amex are around 4%?

But what about World Mastercard that charges 3% odd? The Santander 123 and Tesco are examples of these, and like Amex, by using high transaction fees they provide a reward system in the form of cash back or points to the consumer.

This coupled with spending targets bonuses with Amex with (like the Gold card currently for the 1st year) no annual fee make it a no brainer...

How else would I rack up my points to fly business class?

I recommend Amex to everyone I know, I earn hundreds of pounds in cashbook for buying the things I would buy anyway.
Nearly all the big high street shops take it, probably the only big chains I can think of that don't are Wilkinson and B&Q, even primark take it now days!
I have a backup visa credit card but I barely ever use it..

Great deal

Amex took their card charge down when they started to complete with visa for domestic customers instead of just businesses. The high charges doesn't apply as much anymore!

co-operate amex card not eligible

Ta to the OP, I've been writing up some reviews from my summer hols anyway, so it's a bonus to get paid for them!

"Unfortunately, the system is having trouble connecting your Card at this time. Please try again later." Tried twice now.

Yep signed up and wrote a review for a little hotel I stayed in Dec last year. 24hours later trip advisor posted my review and 10mins later amex sent me an email confirming my £5 credit. Its only for the first 25000 reviews and presumably to build up reviews from amex users for their section on trip advisor but as mentioned a fiver is a fiver.

Am assuming this will work with additional cardholders as well, due to the card numbers being different so maybe possible to get more than £5 if the additional cardholder submits a review. thanks op

I'm not in credit so would this work for me with my balance being zero? Could I sign up Get the five pounds and then get five pounds of petrol on my caed? Presumably American express can be used for tesco petrol?

What's wrong with TripAdvisor?



It is like taking advice off the toilet wall....anyone can write anything with absolutely no come-back. There should be a way to blot out all single reviews, or those without links to facebook/google+ or some other vague proof of ID.

And what about TripAdvisor pop-ups?? I thought most respectable businesses stopped using them in 1999. Such a waste of time.

I had similar concerns. You're being screwed either which way if you chose to spend.Especially NationalRail! And if you have to spend and it is a cahsback card, then it works out quite well. Besides you do get small perks like this. There was a £15 of £50 fuel fill up, £5 back at select places and so on.

Been using it for just under a year and it's accepted widely, just not KFC, TKMaxx, and the very local shops.

On the whole I would certainly recommend amex. Although I do keep a Visa just in case, and the spend is mostly 90/10.

got an email to say my review has been approved. Any idea how long it takes before the credit is applied to the account?

"Congratulations, your first review has been published. You will receive a £5.00 statement credit within two-five days (although it may take up to two billing periods)."

Thanks OP!

I signed up for the gold card to get £60 cashback through quidco, added to that another £5 here. Hopefully a few more freebies as well until I cancel the card before the £125 fee kicks in oO
