American Express has improved its "money back" offer on the Blue credit card. Customers will get back 5 per cent of what they spend on the Blue card - but only in November. Normally they get 1p back for every pounds 1 spent. The card has a low interest rate - currently 9.9 per cent - but that will rise to 19.5 per cent after six months. There is also a pounds 12 annual fee, so you have to spend more than pounds 1,200 a year to make money on the card. Call 0800 700 111.
