Radisson and Dorchester join the American Express hotel cashback party

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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.

£50 cashback at Radisson RED Heathrow

The list of participating hotels is here. It covers properties in the UK, Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.

The new Radisson RED at Heathrow, pictured above, is included. Here is our recent review of Radisson RED Heathrow.

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.

You MUST opt in for the 5,000 points offer which you can do here. Our full article on the Radisson 5,000 points deal is here.

Coworth Park £50 cashback

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.

    Any chance Amex will add EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION deal also?

  • Andy S says:

    Slightly OT but still Amex – how long does it take for Waitrose offer credit to appear, you know the up to £100 back on platinum?

    • Rob says:

      3-4 days after you spend. You do NOT need to hit £100. It comes back in chunks until you hit the cap, eg spend £30 and you get £30 back, spend £80 the next week and you get £70 back.

      • Andy S says:

        great, thanks. if you go over 100 do you get a partial credit or nothing, for example if I’ve had 90 quid back so far, then spend 15, do I get 10 of that back or nothing?

        • TGLoyalty says:

          You’ll get 100% of the spend back up to £100

          So if you spend £90 + 15 you’ll get 90 and 10 credit.
