On the day that a wave of American Express hotel cashback offers close, Amex has launched a new cashback deal with Preferred Hotels.
You will receive £100 cashback when you spend £400 by 30th November.

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 650 hotels represented from 80 countries. Almost all of the hotels trade under their historic names with the phrase ‘A member of Preferred Hotels’ tacked on the end.
The quality is generally high. Click here and you will see the hotels taking part in the offer, which are all in Europe. Almost 25 hotels are in the UK. In London, for example, they have The Beaumont, The Stafford, Royal Lancaster, Sea Containers Hotel and The Bentley amongst others. The Lowry in Manchester and The Grand in York are also included.
If you planning a Winter break, there are a lot of Spanish hotels listed including two in Palma and one on Menorca.
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 their hotels are on the Preferred Hotels site here.
