I previously posted this hot deal for Quidco which has expired, but is now available via Topcashback with slightly more cashback.

Get an American Express gold card - £0 to new members for the first year (usually £120). Cancel anytime within a year and you won't pay a thing.
- Go via Topcashback and get £60.60 cashback or £63 if you are a premium member (money for nothing)
- Plus if you spend £2,000 in the first 3 months you can get 20,000 points bonus which translates to £100 of vouchers. Choices include Amazon, M&S, Boots and Currys PC World (various others)
- You also get 2 free Airport lounge passes
- Plus you also get access to the various Amex Statement credit deals e.g. £10 off £30 ASOS spend

Eligibility criteria for this charge card is £20k income and good credit history.

N.B This is a charge card so the balance needs to be repaid in full at the end of each month, it is not a rolling form of credit like a credit card. Also you must not have had an American Express charge card within 6 months of applying

Dullsville. And not the right card for everyone.

So can you get this, not use it, wait for the TCB to get paid, then cancel?

Yes CSkel, exactly, £60 for filling in an application form!

In theory yes. Ensure you cancel before the end of the first year as in the second year the £125 annual fee applies, £0 for first year.

So it's only a 'deal' because of (not guaranteed) cash back!

It's certainly a nice perk to the deal. I've rarely had an issue with cashback tracking, just clear all my browser history first. If you know you'll comfortably spend £2k in the next 3 months anyway the membership rewards are equivalent to another ~£100 as the OP mentions. There's also the 2 x free airport passes - it's all there in the OP.

Used last time and got the £60 cashback very quickly. Very good deal as got a further £125 in tesco gift card with points!

Thanks. Great way to make £60. Quidco always tracks for me.

How long does it take to get the free airport lounge passes from signing up ?

Sounds good to me... Thanks!

I had post office one when they had £50 didnt track and still disputing

my quidco tracked last week within hours if that helps. mind you haven't actually got money yet.

Has anyone gone via topcashback? Mine hasnt tracked, applied last night - wondering whats going on

Good deal :-)

When do you start to get vouchers? Do you have to wait until anniversary?

Did this last time the deal was on and so did two of my colleagues. All cash back paid out, cancelled cards, no problem!

£60 for filling out an application form people!!

HOT

Same ^^

i applied last week through quidco. hasnt tracked yet. is it normal to take this long?

Mine tracked in 24 hours from Quidco last week.

In the description it mentions this being a charge card.. aren't all credit cards charge cards if you don't repay in full within the standard 56 days, unless they specify otherwise?

Do you think I will get the TCB / bonus points if I already have an British Airways Amex? It says you don't get the bonus points if you have held a "Membership Rewards enrolled American Express Card " in the last 6 months. Not 100% sure what that means....

website traffic is jammed at the moment?

i got on ok just now

If you're planning on spending the 2k to get the vouchers you can get the platinum cashback card instead, gives 5% on the first 2500 (so 125), 1.25% ongoing, the first year is effectively free and there's 21 cashback. It would leave you slightly worse off if you cancelled after three months, but if you're planning to use the card I think it's a better option.

EDIT: Just want to make clear, it looks like with the platinum you get the rewards on the renewal date, so if you cancelled within the year you'd get nothing. It's only worth considering if you're going to keep it open. If not, the Gold is a much better option.

You have to pay in full, there's no option not to (unless you want bad credit). It's the same as a credit card with a minimum payment of 100% of the balance, they make their money off fees instead of interest.

I'm tempted, but I actually changed my credit card a couple of days ago and I don't want another credit check to hurt my credit score!

Applied for this :-)

thanks for this, very quick and easy to do.

Tracked within 15 minutes!

Just wondering what classes as spending £2000. Could I transfer £2000 to another account and then pay it back? Bit naughty I'm guessing. What's the terms etc to qualify for the vouchers? Thanks

Had mine since Sept last year and easy to get to 2k to get free £100 voucher credit. Only problem is that the Amazon vouchers are never available. Great if you like M&S, HOF or iTunes though. Heat for offer - plus £60 quid tracked within a week for me

Forgot to say remember to cancel or incur £125 yearly charge yipes.....

Mine tracked and was paid within a month

Another thing is the free airport lounge passes are sweet - VIP lounge including snacks etc a real treat

Can you elaborate on this? Are there limited numbers? How does it work?

My cashback through topcashback tracked just now - after almost 14 hours or so - at 60.60 GBP - yet to hear from Amex if my application has been accepted or not though - they didn't give me any confirmation online last night when I applied.

The tricky bit I suppose (if I get the card) is to spend 2k in 3 months
