A new wave of American Express cashback deals has been launched.
You can see what you are targeted for by visiting the Amex website and looking at the ‘Offers’ tab on your online statement page. You need to do this for each card you own. Offers must be saved to your card as registration is not automatic.
As soon as you make a qualifying transaction, you receive a statement credit for the promised amount.
The most relevant is another good Hilton offer.
There may be various versions of this, but I was offered – on The Platinum Card – 4,000 Membership Rewards points for spending £350 at selected European Hilton hotels by 31st August.
These offers are usually cumulative so the spend does not have to be in one transaction. Remember that there is a 3% foreign exchange fee on all American Express cards so it is best to spend the £350 in the UK if you can.
You can double dip with the current Hilton Honors promotion which offers double points for stays until 8th September, starting with your 2nd stay. You can register here.
Other travel-related offers on my family cards include:
£100 cashback on £1,000 spend with travel agent Destinology (expires 31st August)
£50 cashback on £200 spend with Hand Picked Hotels (expires 27th November)
£55 cashback on £200 spend at Guoman Hotels (home page here, expires 6th September)
£100 cashback on £400 spend at Hotel Cafe Royal on Regent Street (expires 24th October)
£30 cashback on £100 spend at Thistle Hotels (home page here, expires 6th September)
£10 cashback on £60 spent with Sixt Ride (a Blacklane-style business, expires 31st August)
£55 cashback on £200 spend at Amba Hotels (home page here, expires 6th September)
£55 cashback on £200 spend at London’s Hard Rock Hotel (expires 6th September)
