For the first time ever, as far as I know, the ultra-luxurious Four Seasons hotel chain has launched a cashback offer with American Express.
The offer appeared on Wednesday evening but apparently suffered an IT issue and couldn’t be saved. American Express then seems to have withdrawn it. I am hoping it is back by the time you read this – if not, hopefully it will re-emerge in a day or so.
You need to look under the ‘Offers’ tab on the statement page of the Amex website, or in the Amex app, for each American Express card you hold. If the offer is there, you need to click ‘Save to Card’ to activate it.
You will receive £200 cashback when you spend £1,000 at selected Four Seasons hotels.
The participating hotels are:
- Four Seasons Hotel London At Park Lane
- Four Seasons Hotel London At Ten Trinity Square
- Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire
- Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris
- Grand-Hôtel Du Cap-Ferrat
- Four Seasons Hotel Megeve
- Four Seasons Hotel Madrid
- Four Seasons Hotel Des Bergues Geneva
I don’t have the closing date unfortunately.
If you are based in or around London, you probably know that Four Seasons Hampshire is – by a large margin – the best upmarket weekend break option for a family.
We have been visiting since before we had children, so for 15 years now, and have probably done around 75 nights over the years. The recent addition of a kids pool made it even better for young children and has relieved some of the pressure on the main pool.
If you are booking a Four Seasons hotel to take advantage of this deal, you should book via our luxury hotel booking partner Emyr Thomas at Bon Vivant.
As a Four Seasons Preferred Partner, your booking will usually come with:
- free breakfast (this is a big saving at Four Seasons)
- room upgrade if available at check-in
- a hotel credit (usually $100 or equivalent, may be restricted to certain services)
….. and some other bits and pieces depending on property.
Importantly, Emyr can usually get these benefits on ANY rate showing on the Four Seasons website, so you are virtually certain to get a better deal by using him. The small print of the Amex offer is likely to require you to book a ‘pay at check-out’ rate.
You can contact Emyr via the form on this page of HfP.
