American Express has launched a new wave of hotel cashback deals. Whatever you are planning this Spring, 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 which appeared yesterday:

Get £75 back on £200 spend at Marriott – Marriott Bonvoy American Express holders (it seems)

Get £50 back on £200 spend at Marriott – other Amex cards

  • This offer expires on 31st July
  • The offer is almost certainly cumulative although this is not mentioned in the small print
  • Remember that you get 1,000 bonus Marriott Bonvoy points and double elite night credits on Marriott stays until 4th May, although registration is now closed

Get £100 back on £400 spend at Marriott luxury hotels

  • This offer expires on 31st July
