View Full Version : american express blue ?

The sticky mentions bringing the cost of the premium BA amex card down to ?30 by having an amex blue, is this still correct, I can only see red and platinum (and green chargecard) on the amex website. I got my fee to ?30 this year with a nectar one, but I think it was a fluke and want to get the right one as well. Am I missing something obvious ?? Thanks

Just doing this my self now, and no its not, you have to have the normal platnium then apply for the BA platnium you have to have it for six mths too.

I've already got the BA platinum, I somehow managed to convince them my nectar amex counted towards getting the cost to ?30, but I think I better get the right card before next years fee comes round and they charge me the whole ?120. So you think the normal platinum will do the trick ?

I applied for the Ba blue and they told me on two seperate occassions and two members of staff that to get the reduced rate, i needed to have the platnium for six mths, its such a hassle!

they told me that too, but as I only had 2 months left to get the 2-4-1 ticket and would not have managed 20K spend in that time, I decided to pay the ?120 and use the 2-4-1 on a buisiness class ticket as it was worth the extra money to me. The the credit card arrived and said ?30 - I'm not complaining, but hoping to get the right one before I have to pay next year.
