Hi all,

For those planning to move to, or who already live in the UK this is basically the BA equivalent of the fee free Australian Amex Discovery Card.

I had this card as an Australian on a Visa while working there and provided you have an Australian Amex, getting it before you depart Australia is quite achievable. PM me for details if interested.

Highlights:
  • Bonus 6000 BA Avios after spending £1000 in the first three months
  • No annual
  • Earn 1 Avios per £1 spent
  • Purchase Protection Insurance
  • Refund Protection Insurance
  • Travel Accident Insurance
I get 4000 Avios for each referral.

Apply here: The British Airways American Express® Credit Card

What kind of documentation do Amex UK ask for? e.g. do they need a UK mobile number and address?

yes i believe they need a UK mobile number and address and a current bank account. not sure if you can put Australian company down as employer if you are doing a global transfer for Uk but it worked for me for NZ. note once approved you can simply update mobile and address to your australian one when required.

it turns out i didnt have to supply a uk current account or proof of employment. I just noted down my closed Au membership number on the application. It took the global team about 10 working days , all they asked for was ID. They also gave me an extra offer of an extra 1000 points if i spend 500 pounds within 3 months . I opened a simple free plan Monese digital bank account to pay the Amex card off. They have a 15 pound referral offer ATM. Get a £15 welcome gift when you open a Monese account and do the first transaction with the Monese Card. Download the Monese app here:

i d like to throw my UK amex referral link into the hat too:

British Airways American Express® Credit Card

Avios if you spend £1,000 in the first three months of Card membership.
