Accor has launched a new cashback deal with American Express.

This will appear on some, all or none of your Amex cards. You need to look under the ‘Offers’ tab in the app or on your online statement page for each card you have, and save the offer if it is there.

You will receive £50 cashback when you spend £250 at selected Mercure and Novotel hotels by 31st January.

The list of hotels is eclectic. It only covers the UK, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands. You can see the participating list here.

It only includes selected hotels in those countries. In Sheffield, to pick a random example, Mercure St Paul’s is not included but Mercure Kenwood Hall is there.

It will stack with the Accor sale

This offer will stack with new Accor sale – details are here.

As well as offering up to 25% off the standard flexible rate, you will receive bonus Accor Live Limitless points too but only on your first sale booking:

  • double base points on stays of two nights
  • triple base points on stays of three nights or more

The core Accor brands earn 2.5 base points per €1 spent, with 1 point worth 2 Eurocents off a future stay. This means that stays of 3+ nights will earn you points worth 15% of what you spend excluding taxes, plus any elite status bonus.

You must book by 23rd November and stay between 3rd December and 7th March. The cashback deal only runs to 31st January, however.

You can find out more about the sale, and book, on this special page of the Accor website.
