Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New Amex statement credit travel offers launched inc Eurostar, Hyatt and Selfridges

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

American Express has launched a new round of statement credit deals, with a particularly strong travel focus.

There are two ways to sign up to these deals.  The easiest is to visit the Amex website or app and go the statement page for each card you hold.  At the bottom is a list of current offers targetted to you.  Click ‘Save To Card’ and you’re good to go.

A selection of deals are also available via the Amex Connect website here.  If you hold an American Express issued by Lloyds, MBNA, TSB or Barclays then you can register for these deals via Amex Connect.

These are the travel related offers available:

Eurostar – £20 cashback when you spend £60

Expires 24th July.  If you have two Amex cards you could book a trip as 2 x one-way tickets and get the cashback twice as long as each leg was £60 or more.

Hyatt Hotels – £50 cashback when you spend £250

Expires 30th September.  Valid at most European Hyatt properties including the four in the UK.  Remember that, if used in Europe, the cashback will be offset by Amex’s 3% FX fee.  This offer is NOT on Amex Connect.

Ashford Castle Red Carnation

Red Carnation Hotels – £50 cashback when you spend £250

Expires 29th July.   They run Ashford Castle in Ireland (photo above) amongst other properties although only the UK hotels are included in this offer.  Earlier this week I wrote about their generous ‘2000 Virgin miles per night’ promotion which you could combine with this.

The Halkin / Metropolitan – £50 cashback when you spend £250

Expires 17th July.  This offer is valid twice per card so you can earn up to £100 back at each hotel.

Landmark Hotel Group – £75 cashback when you spend £200

Expires 11th September. Valid at The Landmark London, Lancaster London or K West Hotel & Spa.  This is obviously very generous and worth considering if planning a London hotel stay.

OneFineStay – £100 cashback when you spend £300

Expires 11th September for stays by 31st December.  Generous deal from the ‘upmarket Airbnb’ company.

Of the non-travel deals, there is a ‘£30 back on £100 spend at Selfridges’ which I thought was pretty decent plus quite a few others.

    Frustratingly no Hyatt on any any of my cards (I could happily use it on all of them).

  • BigDave says:

    Selfridges not popped up yet for me but when the Pizza Express offer runs out tthere’s an ASK Italian offer until Sept.

  • Matthew says:

    Any recommendations for nice hotel in London for about £150 max? It’s for a Sat night in July for anniversary. Got a stash of Club carlson points too but a lot want the upgraded room at 105,000 points which seems a waste, so was thinking cash for room. Anyone managed to get IHG Mastercard rate through there app as my accelerate bonus is all via the app. If so then the IC O2 could be a goer! Thanks 🙂

    • Wayne Phillips says:

      Make a refundable booking and then check accor happy mondays in the lead up.

    • Rob says:

      If the one of the Landmark hotels was £200 you would be down to £125 after the £75 Amex credit.

    • Matthew says:

      OK, thanks for the tips 🙂 Will keep an eye out for the Landmark hotel price.

      Any particular Accor hotel highly rated in London?


      • Brian says:

        The Novotel Blackfriars (reviewed on this site) is good – if you’re Platinum, they should treat you well. Novotels are generally good for Platinum recognition – I’ve always been upgraded to an Executive Room. I rather like the Mercure Bloomsbury and the Ibis St Pancras – both regularly appear on Happy Mondays, as does the Pullman St Pancras (albeit at £90, so dearer than the others).

  • Diksa says:

    Thanks for highlighting those. I wonder if the Landmark offer is only for hotel stay.
    Do you think the offer could work to pay for a nice meal (with wine) at their restaurant? Sometimes, the restaurant charges guest under the hotel name on their credit cards… If anyone has even tried, please share. Thank you!

  • rams1981 says:

    no selfridges or H of F for me. Only one card had the Eurostar offer

  • Lumma says:

    I’ve got 3 amex cards and not a single one has any of these offers. 🙁

  • Jordan D says:

    Eurostar on one, but not both cards. Very frustrating.

  • Edward says:

    Is there any way to add an Amex Connect offer to a Amex-issued card when it is not appearing in the Personalized Offers section? I was able to add the Eurostar offer to my Lloyds-issued card very easily, but not to my BA Amex-issued card…

    P.S. Thanks again for those advising on the waiting time for my Amex application. Raffles was right: I found out the next day when the card arrived in the mail. (And only one day later I received the email saying “your application was successful”. Snail mail is faster than email…)
