Live Local Auckland: spend $20 on Amex, get $10 back up to 5 times until 11 June

This is the biggest American Express promotion we’ve seen this year in terms of cashback, giving you a $10 credit on your account each time you spend $20 or more at up to five different participating small businesses in Auckland until the 11 June.

This promotion is designed to encourage spending at local businesses on your American Express card and highlight the acceptance of American Express in the Auckland neighbourhoods of Newmarket, Parnell, Ponsonby and Takapuna.

The concept

If you spend $20 or more in one transaction at a participating business in Auckland, you will receive a $10 credit to your account.

This offer can be used one time each at five different participating businesses. The range of included retailers is reasonably broad, so you should be able to find somewhere close to you that would fit within your normal spend patterns.

The small print

Make sure your card is eligible.

This means that your card is not one of the following: Corporate Cards, American Express Business Travel Accounts, Government Cards, and Store Cards.

The offer is limited to the first 10,000 cards registered, so register now at

Registration is open until the end of the promotion on 11 June.

Amex says the credits usually appear on your account within five business days, with up to three months as a maximum.

Summing up

This offer is a no-brainer from American Express. You can shop at your usual retail or dining establishments without breaking your normal spending habits, or try out somewhere new.

Plus, you are really helping out small businesses, which is good for the local Auckland economy.
