A week after launching new Marriott Bonvoy ‘luxury’ offer, a similar offer for mid-market hotels has appeared on many American Express cards.

You will receive £50 cashback when you spend £200 in selected midmarket Marriott Bonvoy hotels across the UK and continental Europe.

It runs to 31st December. Cumulative spend DOES count.

New Marriott / American Express £50 hotel cashback offer launched

As with the £100 ‘luxury’ cashback deal, I don’t have this offer on my Marriott Bonvoy American Express card – I only have it on my Platinum card and my wife’s Preferred Rewards Gold. Neither of us have it on our British Airways cards.

The list of UK hotels is a lot shorter than usual, but there is a decent selection across Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Good UK options include the new Westin City in London (review), along with The Bankside Hotel (review) and Sheraton Grand (review). There is nothing at all in Scotland, oddly.

£200 won’t necessarily get you far at these places, given current hotel rates, but if you have the offer on multiple Amex cards you could split the bill at check-out and trigger multiple bonuses. There are a number of cheap Moxy hotels listed if you are considering a mattress run to lock in your Marriott Bonvoy status for next year.

Don’t forget to register for the new Marriott promotion

The new Bonvoy bonus points promotion runs from 21st September to 15th December.

Note that this is per stay and not per night. There is no limit to the number of times you can earn the bonus, although it is not generous enough to justify changing hotels each night on a longer stay.
