A couple of new hotel and airline cashback offers have appeared on American Express statements. You may find some, none or all of these under the ‘Offers’ tab on your online statement pages.
Remember that you must opt-in to each offer and that different offers appear under each card you hold.
To add to the existing deals for Thistle, Amba, Hilton, Melia and Guoman hotels, which we have discussed previously, I have:
£30 back on a £250 spend at MGallery (expires 15th November)
15% back (max £100) at TripAdvisor Rentals (expires 16th November)
£100 back on £800 Emirates spend (expires 31st October)
If you’ve never heard of MGallery by Sofitel, it 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 five MGallery hotels of which four are taking part in this deal:
- Francis Hotel, Bath (photo below)
- Queens Hotel, Cheltenham
- Victory House, Leicester Square, London (not participating in this offer)
- Castle Hotel, Windsor
- Woughton House, Milton Keynes
