New Amex cardholder offer: Spend £30 get £10 back at Gourmet Burger Kitchen - combinable with other discounts

23
Found 15th Jan 2014
I've just spotted a new Amex statement credit deal on my account: Spend £30 at Gourmet Burger Kitchen - receive a £10 statement credit. This is effectively £10 worth of free food/drinks but as with all Amex credit offers it can be used alongside existing store offers, so if played correctly you could get up to £60 worth of food for £20 by using these further discount methods:

1. If you have a Tastecard you could combine it with their 2 for 1 on a Sunday - Thursday at the 28 branches listed here: tastecard.co.uk/res…GBK - clickable links in the first post
2. Students with a valid NUS card can get 30% off their food bill: studentbeans.com/nat…tml or gbkapp.co.uk/uni
3. Everyone can get 2 burgers for £10 until 16th Feb using the printable voucher from here: absoluteradio.co.uk/ima…png

As with the previous Amex offers (some of which may still be available for some cardholders) detailed in this thread - hotukdeals.com/tag/dea…095 - this may only be available to select people, but it appears on all 3 of my cards and is available to the first 30,000 to load the offer, so there's a good chance it'll be available to everyone. To check:

> Log on to your account at americanexpress.com/uk/
> Look at the "Especially for you" column on the right of the 'My Account' page.
> Click "Your offers" to see which are available for you
> Click "Save to card"
> Do the same for any other Amex cards you have as different cards on the same account can still have different offers available

GBK offer terms and conditions:
> Offer only applies to spend on this Card. It does not apply to spend on supplementary cards or other cards you might hold.
> Offer available when dining in at a GBK restaurant.
> Only one £10 statement credit per Card.
> Offer limited to the first 30,000 Cards to load the Offer.
> Your Card must remain enrolled until the statement credit is applied.
> Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying transaction is refunded or cancelled.
> If you earn reward points, you will only earn reward points on the value of the qualifying spend minus the statement credit.
> Statement credits are issued within 3-5 business days of the qualifying spend, but may take up to 8 weeks to appear in your account.

Good find OP! Well explained for new American Express Card Holders!

Good deal. Tried to post the the other week and it was marked as spam http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/select-amex-card-holders-gbk-spend-30-get-10-credit-statement-1776266with no explanation. Heat for all the extra info.

I took some screen shots before....here's how you'll find this offer to apply to your card once logged into your account...

1. On the right handside of the page when you login at americanexpress.com/uk/ click on "Your Offers"....

Some threads are spammed for specific reasons (usually a duplicate post) and/or are spammed by staff (OP's will receive a PM) if a thread has incorrectly been spammed the OP can request it be returned by contacting a Mod or Admin or opening an "Ask" thread. I hope that helps for the future, it is annoying when your deal has been spammed for no reason

Does this work with Lloyds/TSB Duo Amex card?

well you have no way of logging into the amex website with that card so it would be impossible to apply the deal

Thanks, had ready loaded this but didn't know about the 2 4 1

GREAT deal

not listed as an offer for me. Do you know if it's because the nearest gbk is about fifty miles away. i used the tesco and duty free offers recently. shame cos I love gbk and would have definitely used this offer

Not necessarily. I live a similar distance. I've definitely used my card before in one - possibly that helps qualify(?)

Thanks, I'm not really sure why. The reasons you mention do make sense. I sent an email through via the contact page at the time but didn't hear back in this case.

Not in my account hot still ...

Fairfax Meadow supply the pattys for this company and Byrons.Each patty … Fairfax Meadow supply the pattys for this company and Byrons.Each patty costs around 50 p.Draw your own conclusions.



Shopping centre/cinema complex overheads, staff costs, rates, electricity, profit margin; any others I've missed?

So the overheads more than Maccys ?Just trying to explain the rip off … So the overheads more than Maccys ?Just trying to explain the rip off nature of the product,but if you're willing to pay their prices......Get well soon buddy,lol.



I'm in my twenties, I'm earning a reasonable wage, if I'm going out to the cinema with friends I'd sooner pay a few quid extra and go somewhere nicer than McDonalds with better quality food. I'll also feel fuller for longer than I would do with a McDonalds,

Where do you draw the line? Or do you just not eat out full stop?

To answer your question, yes I'd imagine their overheads are more expensive than McDonalds, given the comparative buying power of a multinational corporation with hundreds of outlets in each country they operate in. Though I do believe your original point was with regards to the cost of buying from the supplier, hence my answer...

rip off? it's pub food prices, food is delivered to your table, they use fresh ingredients, they buy their patties by the thousand instead of by the billion - yes, I'd say they have higher overheads - and a much better product. your girlfriend/wife must be a lucky lady on valentines day.

You're going about it in a very patronising manner...

GunnerGraham



Perhaps you genuinely are completely oblivious to the sanctimonious tone of your own posts, but whatever floats your boat; on a side note I'm not your son or buddy, and I doubt the other chap is either. You've also mixed up your reply between two quotes so I honestly don't know who you're trying to address. Either way, whatever point it is you're trying to make, you're making a mess of it.

Did it really take you a week to come up with that drivel? While you're looking up big words in the dictionary you might want to check your spelling of insistence.

I can see you're still trying to save us from paying a restaurant's prices but it goes back to what I asked before this long boring chain of you missing the point, because no restaurant I'm aware of sells their food at wholesale cost price. For example, do you think that a £7 pasta dish in an Italian restaurant costs anything more than pennies to make?

I'm usually too busy working to look into this site as often as you do.I … I'm usually too busy working to look into this site as often as you do.I do however, understand the rules of profit and loss,much to your chagrin.Carry on.I have some swampland for sale if you're interested ?



Shame as I checked for another one of your enlightening replies a couple of days back and you were online but you keep plugging away, you've clearly got a slim grip on reality, if not a tight grip on your finances.

That said, I'm fully experienced with double entry bookkeeping so I'd be more concerned with your balance sheet if you've got a tendency to buy worthless assets...

Anyway, less posting, I must go and redeem this offer and regale the other diners with stories of fifty pence patties, profit and loss overheads and 'letting them know the score'.

Why don't you two just flame each other via PM instead of all this puerile nonsense being aired publicly?

Because I would imagine that's against the forum TOS and flaming won't get you anywhere (well, it might cook a burger).

Whilst I appreciate a constructive debate, resorting to trying to claim the intellectual high ground by brandishing 'buddys', 'sons' and 'letting us know the score', as if we're all completely oblivious to restaurants making a high mark up on raw ingredients, doesn't constitute one and hence I've continued to reply on here. If nothing else good comes of it, hopefully the high view count will bump it up the page and a few more AMEX holders will benefit from the offer.

Plus it's plainly obvious he can't resist coming back to try and give his misspelled and misguided air of superiority (I did particularly enjoy his attempt to use pedantic and sanctimonious in the same sentence). Looks like he's finally flipped like a burger patty and lost his condiments...

On a side note, I find it quite amusing to be branded a troll, given I doubt he's even got an American Express card and from the subject of his posts do you think he's actually going to go to GBK? Bit like all the posters on the current Merc thread who've no intention of buying anything other than a 15 year old Peugeot but still want to tell the world why they shouldn't choose to spend their own money how they please.

Anyway, unless he reneges on his agreement not to come back on the thread, that's the end of that.

Please re-read the thread from where you first gave out your sage advice of wholesale food being cheaper than the final finished restaurant product, and while you're reading your increasingly animated and aggressive replies, consider the idiom of the pot calling the kettle black.

I know full well you're coming back to read this, whether you choose to post or not. If you're not going to reply, perhaps you could also consider putting your account to better use and actually posting a deal.

EDIT: Oh well all of his replies are gone. Perhaps he'll heed some useful advice and go and post a deal.
