Lidl now accepts American Express

Written by:
American Express cardholders can now make payments at supermarket Lidl.

And to mark the launch, American Express members can receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £20 or more at Lidl stores by adding the offer to their card from the Amex mobile app or website. The offer runs from 8 April to 17 May 2019.

“The number of places where American Express is accepted continues to grow, and we’re delighted that cardmembers can now use their card to pay at Lidl stores across England, Scotland and Wales,” said Thelma De la Peña, vice president, American Express Merchant Services UK.

“Welcoming Lidl onto the American Express network means that American Express cards are now accepted at all major supermarkets in Great Britain and it represents another important step in ensuring our cardmembers have the option to use their card at the places they want to shop.”

A Lidl GB spokesperson commented: “At Lidl we’re committed to improving our customer experience. We’re therefore pleased to announce that we are now accepting American Express payments in our stores across Great Britain, giving our customers another quick and efficient way to pay for their shopping.”
