New research from American Express reveals that more than half (53 per cent) of the UK adult population now takes more advantage of vouchers, discounts and special offers compared to a year ago with 86 per cent of people saving up to £200 a year.
On average, consumers spend 45 minutes a week - this equates to almost two days a year (39 hours) - seeking out money-off deals. Shopping behaviours and choices are becoming increasingly dictated by special offers with more than three quarters (78 per cent) of British adults saying they are more likely to use a particular retailer or restaurant if there's a special deal or discount available.
How it works:
From today, Cardmembers who securely sync their Cards can now check-in using foursquare to load exclusive offers from a host of popular high street brands and redeem the offers seamlessly. There is no need to present vouchers, remember codes or even show mobile devices to a cashier. Savings are automatically credited to the Cardmember's American Express account within three to five working days when they pay with their American Express Card, ensuring a completely smooth transaction for both buyers and sellers.
Julie Hay, Head of Credit Cards at American Express, said: "This partnership with foursquare is a first for our UK Cardmembers at a time when value-driven Brits are becoming increasingly tech savvy. It's a perfect way to get hassle-free discounts. Cardmembers can now save up to £80 by taking advantage of these voucher-free offers. This is on top of the regular American Express rewards such as Cashback, Avios and Membership Rewards they earn by spending on their Card."
American Express Cardmembers can now securely sync their Cards at sync.americanexpress.co.uk and then check-in using foursquare to start unlocking offers.
