By Mohamed Dabo

From today (25 May), eligible American Express cardmembers can receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £40 or more in store at B&Q, the UK’s home improvement and garden living retailer.

American Express cardmembers can access this offer by simply adding it to their card from the Amex mobile app or website.

Cardmembers will then be able to receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £40 or more at one of B&Q’s 300 locations around the UK (available once per card).

The offer comes just in time for the second May Bank Holiday, during which many will be looking to prepare their outdoor spaces for a summer of socialising with friends and family following the easing of lockdown restrictions.
