Good new Amex hotel cashback offers released – Marriott, Hyatt, Thistle and more

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

American Express has launched a new wave of hotel cashback deals. Whatever you are planning this Autumn, you are likely to find a deal for you.

As usual, these offers may or may not appear somewhere on your American Express account. You need to look under the ‘Offers’ tab for every Amex card you hold, and ‘Save’ those offers which you want to use.

Here are the new deals:

Get £100 back on £250 spend at Hyatt

  • This offer expires on 31st December
  • It is an excellent deal, obviously, and will be even better if Hyatt lanches a generous Autumn promotion. It covers selected European countries only. I am 100% certain to be taking advantage of this offer given the scale of the discount and the great properties included.
  • Remember that you can get an even better deal if you book via Hyatt Prive, which gets you free breakfast, a guaranteed upgrade and a hotel food and drink credit. Learn about Hyatt Prive here.

Get £50 back on £200 spend at Marriott

  • This offer expires on 28th February 2022
  • All of the hotels are in Europe.

Get £30 back on £100 spend at Thistle

  • This offer expires on 31st December

Get £60 back on £200 spend at Hard Rock Hotel London, The Clermont, Guoman

  • This offer expires on 31st December
  • It covers (all in London) the two The Clermont hotels (ex-Amba), Amba Marble Arch, The Tower at St Katherine Docks, Great Cumberland Place, The Royal Horseguards, Hard Rock Hotel London.

The following existing Amex hotel cashback deals are still running (I haven’t included the very long list of deals which are expiring this month):

  • £100 back on £350 spend at Leading Hotels of the World, ends 15th October
  • £70 back on £200 spend at Millennium & Copthorne, ends 31st October
  • £100 back on £400 spend with Preferred Hotels, ends 30th November
  • £75 back on £350 spend with The Doyle Collection, ends 30th November
  • £100 back on £400 spend at One Aldwych in London, ends 30th December

  • Gavin says:

    Got Thistle and Clermont in my Plat Supplementary.

  • Manya says:

    What are the most family friendly hotels from the Hyatt list?

    • ChrisWalk83 says:

      We recently stayed at the Andaz Liverpool Street in London who were super helpful with our 8 month old. They loved to see us everyday. We booked a suite for more room.

      • Crafty says:

        Great with us too. Still, I’m not sure I would describe it as especially family friendly.

  • Rosie says:

    Got all of the above minus hard rock on my BA classic Amex

  • J Wang says:

    I have three Amex (platinum, Marriott and ba premium) but can only see one Hyatt offer under platinum card. Do they roll out in batches? Or should I call CS?

    • Rob says:

      Unlikely you’ll get it on multiple cards of yours – and certainly not on Marriott! This is why your partner needs cards in their own name and not just living off your supps.

      • Shaw West says:

        I have it on my Bonvoy and the supps. 🙂 First time I see a Marriott offer on the Bonvoy card

      • Tracy says:

        I have it on Marriott and supp too 🙂

        • Tracy says:

          Ah just re-read this, I don’t have Hyatt offer on my Marriott, I have Marriott offer on my Marriott….

      • J Wang says:

        Very sad. Really want to have the Marriott one. Going to have 10nights in the next 2-3months. Is it worth calling Amex, rob? Thanks for the articles though. It’s my daily read now.

  • FlightDoctor says:

    Used the previous Hyatt offer in the summer for a great family weekend break at the Churchill in London. It was on both my Platinum and BAPP cards and by splitting the bill at checkout I got £200 off. It’s on both cards again!

    • Rick says:

      I’ve actually got the offer on my 2 supplementary Platinum and BAPP cards as well as my main cards – so up to £400 off! I see a Christmas shopping trip coming up!

  • FlightDoctor says:

    To add to my previous I also have the Hyatt offer on both my Plat and BAPP supplementary cards so that’s up to £400 off for a possible Xmas shopping trip!

    • Andrew says:

      Where your hotel bill is £1000?!

      • Ken says:

        Yeah by think of the money saved.

        Real shame that the Anduz London rates are now a fair bit higher than the summer.

        • TGLoyalty says:

          All the London hotel rates seem to have skyrocketed. They must know something we don’t because London was still very quiet.

  • Matthew says:

    Can’t believe still no Marriott offer on the Marriott card??!

  • Jordan D says:

    Always a slightly weird list of countries on the Marriott offer – any ideas why some European ones are in, but others (eg Portugal) are not?
