LocalFound 30th Oct 2012
Got an email earlier today from Avios as part of Lloyds TSB Credit Card, but it works on all American Express Credit Cards.


This November small shops in your local area are welcoming American Express cardholders with a special deal. From cafés to chemists, haircuts to hardware.

Just opt in, and the first time you spend £5 or more on your card at each participating local shop, American Express will put £5 back in your account.

Lots of shops in my area

Oh and Avios points if you have the Avios card.



T&C: enroll.amexnetwork.com/GB/…12/


£10 off £10 spend at gap is coming up

£5 of £20 spend at Argos

How do you find out which shops are participating?



Go on www332.amexnetwork.com/Mer…ish

Zoom out of London, and Zoom into your location as close can you want, Wait for it to catch up, and the participating shops are shown in purple blobs and down the left hand side. (See picture)

Looks a good deal to me. My local pub is on the list... Result
Thanks for the link samirali786
Lots of local pubs / curry houses near me... Did someone say, free pub crawl followed by free curry?
Looks very good. Recently did the £25 thing via foursquare.

Regards harvey Nicols, they also have an offer for £25 at their cafe (London)

I also got the 25 offer there the other day.
Hi, thanks for that!!!!
Cheers for that. I was gutted when the last foursquare thing (£10 off at Primark, £10 off at nandos etc) stopped working!
If you have joint cards could you do it for both?
So if I go in each of these shops and spend £5 I get £5 back? You could get £100's of pounds of free stuff.

"Just opt in, and the first time you spend £5 or more on your card at each participating local shop, American Express will put £5 back in your account."

Seems like a one time offer
I was going to say scorching hot...but its only a one time offer...
Also, its one credit per statement so would include additional card holders. But if you have different cards, eg a charge and a credit card, then you could get one credit each.
Great find! Heat up! Thanks OP
Do you have to sync with Foursquare like the previous offer?
Oh wow the map is awful. Doesn't look like there's too much near me unfortunately.

I wonder what the Foursquare tie-in will look like (I suppose we'll find out tomorrow when the specials go live).
HANG ON. Its £5 per SHOP per statement!!! This is an incredible deal!

"Limit one statement credit per Card at each “Shop Small” participating merchant location. "

"Now that your Card is registered, when you spend £5 or more one time at each participating business location, you'll receive a £5 credit on your statement. Remember, there's no limit to how many times you can Shop Small at different locations and get rewarded each time."
To be eligible for the £5 statement credit, you must register your American Express Card here and use that Card to make purchases of £5 or more at participating "Shop Small" merchant locations between November 1 and November 30, 2012. Limit one statement credit per Card at each "Shop Small" participating merchant location.

This implies you can do this at more than one shop!?
Pity the shopkeepers - it can cost £1 more to process an Amex transaction compared with a Mastercard transaction for the same value. You might do better to ask for a discount for cash.

Yep, even the pic implies that:

I have sent this to american express as there are so many questions that need answering

Hi
I had an email from AVIOS regarding an new promotion from 1st - 30th November 2012 whereby if you use your LLoyds TSB American Express Card and spend £5 or more at participating shops your account will be credited back with £5 for each participating location you visit. A List of locations is provided on a map link. I have a few questions that neither Lloyds TSB nor Avios could answer and as the promotion is run overall by American Express I thought I would email you.
I have registered/synced my Lloyds TSB Amex card but also have other American express Cards, my online card with you plus a BMI American Express card. Can I register these cards also?
I see the terms state one £5 credit per participating location but there is a chemist in my local area that has numerous branches so are all these locations treated as individual participants or can I just visit one of the chain?
What is the area that I can use the card in, is it any shops participating or am I restricted to local postcode or town?
Thank you

definitely hot! .. i think amex is making it more affordable to retailers to use their cards. Loads of shops in my area too.

For those of you who have amex who hate retailers not accepting it online. Pair your AMEX card with Paypal and pay by paypal instead!
Hmm only place in Leeds centre is Silks Gentlemans Lounge
The London dungeons is apparently a small local shop lol

£5 probably won't get you far...
Thanks OP.

A problem is that many of these so called 'small shops' do not accept the card unless you shop for a minimum of £10. I have shopped at many of the businesses located in SW19 and SW17 and can say this from my personal experience. But even then, getting £5 back and that too as many times (from different shops) during 1 - 30 Nov, is an excellent deal!

A good point but what has this got to do with the deal?

Online payments with or without paypal, are not part of this deal.

whats the cheapest amex card to have?
AMEX Corporate Cards are NOT included in this offer!
Good spot. Thanks for posting. Shame the shop keepers won't do well if you only spend £5 or just over.
