Win a golden getaway

Hello friends! Today could be your lucky day: I have a pair of European flights up for grabs thanks to the American Express Preferred Rewards Gold Card.

I joined American Express at a special blogger meet-up to celebrate the golden travel rewards linked to their Preferred Rewards Gold Card.

Hosted at Saint Martins Lane hotel, it was quite a sparkling evening – there were stylish cocktails, including a lychee martini dusted with gold, the chance to pan through sand to find winning golden nuggets and lots of chats about the amazing travel perks of having a Card. And that’s not all – I won a pair of flights to Europe to give away on the blog.

So what is this Preferred Rewards Gold Card all about? Well, the great thing is, the points you earn by using the Card can be turned into really worthwhile rewards such as flights, hotel stays and much more. You’ll even receive two complimentary annual visits to airport lounges worldwide.

To help you build up points quickly, you’ll receive double the rewards on virtually all travel-related spend and practically all purchases while you’re abroad. What’s more, there is no limit on the points you can earn and they never expire, so this is one Card that’s worth its weight in gold, may I say.

Right now, American Express is giving away a welcome bonus of 20,000 points just by spending and charging £1,000 in the first three months of Cardmembership. With Christmas shopping, that is going to be pretty easy to achieve.  In fact, that’s enough points for a pair of return flights to some of Europe’s most exciting cities*. Want to find out more?

Now – to be in with the chance of winning a pair of flights to a European destination of your choice worth up to £400 you need to be based in the UK (sorry, fellow froggies!) and over 18. You also need to follow Tea Time in Wonderland on Facebook or/and Twitter. Ready? Simply answer the below question in the comments below – we promise it is a very easy one:
