Update – Wednesday 26th March 2014 – Sadly it seems that Amex and/or BestSecret have spotted the flaw in the way this promotion was configured, and have withdrawn the link from the Amex site. However, any voucher registrations already completed appear to still be present in the accounts created and thus should be honoured. From personal experience I can confirm that orders placed are being shipped, so all those that took advantage of the offer should get their goods.
Via the always excellent Raffles at HeadForPoints, we have news of a great deal to be exploited with Amex and BestSecret.com:
Members-only website BestSecret is one of the fashion industry’s best-kept secrets. Ordinarily, membership to the shopping website is by invitation only, however as a Platinum Cardmember we have arranged for you to obtain a permanent membership at BestSecret. What’s more, when you join, you will receive a £50 voucher to spend.
A subsidiary of one of Europe‘s oldest textile wholesalers, Schustermann & Borenstein, the website pulls together an extensive network of luxury suppliers and offers discounts of up to 80% on over 1,000 designer labels, such as Missoni, Valentino and Bottega Veneta. Current collections are reduced up to 20% with over 500 new offers daily.
Your additional exclusive benefits as a Platinum Cardmember include:
• Permanent access to the shopping community;
• A welcome voucher for £50 upon registration automatically applied at checkout when purchases are made with your American Express Platinum Card;
• No minimum order value;
• Complementary shipping.
So £50 voucher offer an order with no minimum spend and no delivery. Sounds good, yes? The products seem good quality continental brands, and at decent prices too.
Even better, it seems as though as long you pay with your American Express Platinum card, one can create as many accounts using this voucher as you wish (using a different email address each time). This seems a bit of an oversight by the two organisations involved and maybe a loophole that is closed shortly, but for now it is definitely worth embracing. I’ve placed two orders so far and both have shipped with no issues.
So how do you access the link? Head to the Amex Platinum site, then ‘Platinum Lifestyle’ and then it is listed under ‘Offers and Events’. Great deal!
