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:

  • Tom H says:

    I ve also got 100 off 500 with BA, anyone have experience on of this would work with BAH (I appreciate the T&C so just looking for actual experience)

  • Jim says:

    I also have a £100 off £300 offer for SLH on my card

  • Manya says:

    Is the list of participating Marriott hotels different across the two offers? I ask because the wording describing the lists is different.

  • Matt says:

    Good to see the Amex Bonvoy deal back – used it last year for a weekend trip to the Langley. I also tried to split the bill across two Amex cards on the off-chance that it would trigger both offers, but only the £100 off £400 was activated (they must have the list of hotels locked down on their system!)

    • meta says:

      I split the bill across several cards and have no problem receiving credits for all, even at Langley. You should have chased it.

      • Rob says:

        Definitely triggers on both. Was it the same £400 offer on both cards? The Langley wasn’t on the £200 list.

        • TGLoyalty says:

          “two Amex cards on the off-chance that it would trigger both offers, but only the £100 off £400 was activated”

          sounds like it wasn’t the same offer on both cards.

          Yes the list is locked down correctly so it won’t trigger my accident.

          • Matt says:

            Correct, I had £100 off £400 on my BAPP and £50 off £200 on the Nectar Amex. This time I have both offers on the BAPP (and have closed the Nectar card).

  • NorthernLass says:

    Amex continues to be erratic – I got the £50 cash back from a Hilton stay within 48 hours but there’s no sign of an Indigo one over a week later.

  • Andrew Beaumont says:

    No sign of Hilton in my app and that’s the one Im after.

  • cercwc76 says:

    Nothing on my BAPP card excepting IHG

  • Hotelier says:

    Slightly off topic but maybe someone can help. I had a spend £500 get £100 for BA ( Business card) I just booked a redemption ticket with total taxes of £720 paid at once but BA has run the transaction as 2x£360 ( each ticket separately) … AMEX said tough luck and contact BA, question is:
    1-Any chance of cash back posting? They said no commutative
    2-Who would be appropriate in BA to contact, don’t really know which area could help.

    Thanks in advance!

    • James says:

      BA tend to preauth as 2 transactions but once they settle the transaction you should see it as 720.

      • Nick says:

        It’s the other way round. They authorise as one but bill as two.

        This is actually standard practice for Amex and is driven entirely by Amex’s rules – they insist on processing it at individual ticket level. Given this, there’s nothing at all BA can do.

        • Hotelier says:

          Thank you! If this is directed by Amex, shouldn’t they honour the offer – I have a receipt from BA for £720 ( not my fault they split the transaction, based on that this could happen with any other offer and will never be able to get any of them)

          • aso40 says:

            The usually do honour deals in these cases, it often triggers automatically. It was the same for the Amex Travel offers.
