We recently published a list of 19 hotel chains which are currently offering generous cashback deals to selected American Express cardholders. It turns out I missed Melia so it was actually 20.
Radisson has now joined in. If targetted, you will receive £50 cashback when you spend £150 across selected Radisson Blu / RED / Edwardian, Park Inn and Park Plaza hotels by 31st December.
The list of participating hotels is here. It covers properties in the UK, Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.
Remember that you need to opt in to this offer. If targetted, you will see it under the ‘Offers’ tab on your online statement page. Most reports so far are from holders of The Platinum Card.
Radisson is running a VERY generous promotion at the moment. Until 31st December, you receive 5,000 bonus Radisson Rewards points per stay, which I value at £17 (0.33p per point). Factor in the cashback and you could do very nicely here.
Dorchester Collection has joined in too
An offer from Dorchester Collection has also popped up. This is worth £50 back on £250 of spending.
Dorchester Collection covers, in the UK, The Dorchester, 45 Park Lane and country retreat Coworth Park, pictured above. The full global list is here.
If you are booking a Dorchester Collection property, I strongly recommend booking via our luxury hotel booking partner Emyr Thomas at Bon Vivant. He can access extra benefits for his clients at no extra cost compared to standard rates.
You pay on departure as usual – so the cashback is triggered – and Emyr does not charge any fees. You can contact him via this page of HfP.
