American Express has two cashback credit cards – the Amex Cashback Credit Card and the Amex Cashback Everyday Credit Card. (These cards were renamed last week and used to be called ‘Platinum Cashback’ cards. This was presumably causing some confusion with The Platinum Card and its £650 fee.) For the first time ever, I think, American Express is running a special sign-up offer on the free Amex Cashback Everyday Credit Card. Of course, Head for Points is primarily about earning airline miles or hotel loyalty points, and earning points via your credit card spend is an important part of that. &nb ..read more

This is what happens on 29th February with American Express pro-rata fee refunds
Head For Points

American Express has traditionally offered one feature which other UK credit card companies did not. If you took out a card with an upfront annual fee, you would receive a pro-rata fee refund if you cancelled your card part-way through the year. Amex decided to stop pro-rata fee refunds on 2nd October 2023. At the last minute it had a change of heart, and announced that refunds would still be available until at least 29th February 2024. So …. what happens next? I have been speaking to American Express this week and it has issued this statement: Pro-rata refunds on credit cards will be remove ..read more

Etihad Guest changes – tough expiry rules, no free award cancellation, restricted lounge access
Head For Points
by Rob Burgess
2d ago
Etihad Guest has announced an overhaul of the program as the airline continues on its post-pandemic rebuilding, including the move to the brand new terminal at Zayed International Airport. The good news is that the cost of Economy flight redemptions will drop on the majority of routes. Some Business Class redemptions will also become cheaper (and some will go up) although flights from the UK won’t change. There are some – frankly unique – pieces of bad news: there is a very negative change to mileage expiry rules you can no longer cancel redemption tickets for free, with a minimum penalty ..read more
