News in brief:

New American Express hotel cashback deals

Some new Amex cashback offers have launched.  Some, all or none of these deals may be available for sign-up on the ‘Offers’ tab of your online statement page.  Remember that you need to check for each card you own, as the offers vary.  It is also worth noting that the app seems to show fewer offers than the website.

Across my cards I have:

£5 back on £50 spend at World Duty Free (expires 14th September, would stack with the RED app offers here)

£5 back on £20 spend with Addison Lee (can earn three times, expires 20th September, download app here)

£35 back on £200 spend at NH Hotels (very strong in Spain – earns Avios via Iberia, expires 31st August)

£100 back on £400 spend at Melia Hotels (home page, expires 28th September, short list of participating hotels)

£100 back on £500 spend at US Hilton properties (home page, expires 30th September, note USA only)

Existing offers still available include:

£35 back on £100 spend at Thistle Hotels (home page, expires 30th September)

£55 back on £200 spend at Guoman Hotels (home page, expires 30th September)

£55 back on £200 spend at Amba Hotels (home page, Marble Arch review, expires 30th September)

Francis Hotel Bath MGallery

500 bonus Accor points and two cocktails with MGallery

MGallery by Sofitel is one of the lesser known brands under the Accor portfolio.  According to the MGallery site:

MGallery by Sofitel is a collection of boutique hotels dedicated to lovers of life, literature and culture. Each MGallery hotel stands as a gateway into another world – be it a bygone era, a hidden haven or a spectacular natural landscape.

In the UK, there are four MGallery hotels:

Stay at any MGallery hotel globally before 9th September and you will receive 500 bonus Le Club AccorHotels points (worth 500 Avios or a €10 Accor voucher) and two signature cocktails at the bar.  You need to book via this special page.

IHG Rewards Club Hertz offer

3,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points on Hertz rentals

We are a bit late to the party on this deal annoyingly.  However, until 31st July you will earn 3,000 IHG Rewards Club bonus points when you credit a Hertz car rental to IHG.  This is on top of the standard earning rate of 500 points per rental day for Elite members and 125 points per rental day for base level members.

You MUST book via this IHG web page.  It is not clear if rentals must be completed by 31st July or just booked, so for safety should assume the former.

Hertz points usually count for status when credited to IHG Rewards Club, so there is a chance that the 3,000 bonus points will also be status-qualifying.

You may even be able to stack this offer with the Hertz / Amex deal mentioned at the top of this page.

    Something like founder’s privileges. We invented football – the most popular sport in the world, the rest of the world are even better at it than us these days ho ho – and football’s success inspired so much other sport, rugby, cricket, baseball, Yank football etc.

    Anyway, the Brits invented football so we can have 4 teams.

    And all that sport has headed off conflict and death.

    Nations put their all behind their national sports team and hence avoid real wars, which were often started for very stupid reasons.

    A way to get even with, beat or lose against your hated enemy – then everybody gets on with their lives the next day.

    I just received an email from BA offering 30,000 avios for taking out the BAPP card. Does it combine with the referral bonus? I.e. is it possible to double dip?
