American Express has launched an ‘extra night’ offer with Preferred Hotels.

You get a third, fourth, or fifth night free when you book two, three, or four consecutive nights at selected properties, paying with an American Express card.

Preferred Hotels Group is not a hotel chain, which is why you may not know it.  It is basically a marketing consortium made up of a number of independent hotels from around the world.

There are over 700 hotels represented from 85 countries.  Almost all of the hotels trade under their historic names with the phrase ‘A member of Preferred Hotels’ tacked on the end.

Preferred Hotels American Express offer

The quality is generally high.  In London, for example, they have The Beaumont, The Stafford, Royal Lancaster, Draycott Hotel and The Bentley amongst others.

Bookings can be made until 30th November for stays until 31st December.

Don’t forget to sign up to the iPrefer loyalty programme before your stay – details here.  Whilst a low profile scheme the company claims to have 2.5 million members.

Full details of the Amex promotion are on the Preferred Hotels site hereclick on ‘Credit Cards’ on the menu bar.

    OT- AliPay

    Anyone used Alipay.
    I am in Singapore and looking at many places and websites they seem to accept Alipay, as opposed to PayPal.
    Would I be able to use Alipay with currency conversion to my advantage?
