After dropping their bonus to a measly 2,000 Membership Rewards points a couple of weeks ago, American Express has reintroduced a decent bonus for taking out their American Express Platinum Charge card. The bonus is now 35,000 Membership Reward points. This is still some way off the previous best of 52,000 points, but is still a very good deal.
It looks like Amex is testing the market, to see what level of bonus they need to offer to entice people to take the card and its benefits, albeit for a fairly hefty £450 per year charge.
You can find out more details on the card here.
British Airways is offering a £20 discount, per person, when you spend at least £100 on an Economy Euro-Traveller flight. The promotion is in conjunction with Lloyds TSB, and is meant for Lloyds TSB credit card holders, but it is unlikely that BA will be able to cross reference those that use it with Lloyds TSB’s customer database.
To get the discount, enter promo code LTSBMARZH on the britishairways.com booking page by following the “Got a promotion code?” link. You must book by 12th April 2013 and travel between 1st April 2013 and 30th June 2013. Booking classes Y,B,H,K,M,L,S,V,N,Q and O are included in the offer, but Domestic and BA City Flyer flights are excluded, as are one-way bookings.
More details can be found here, and the full Terms and Conditions are here.

Tesco is offering 25 free Clubcard points (convertible into 60 Avios at the standard rate) for completing a short feedback form.

This offer is really only useful to those that already have some Club Carlson points, as the minimum redemption amount is 2000, which will give you 250 Avios. The page says that the points will post in 2 to 3 weeks.
The bonus for being referred for the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Card has been reduced to 19,000 Avios from today. This is still a good deal, but not quite as good as the 26,000 Avios being offered last week. I have updated the Credit Card Offers page to reflect the change.
