IHG has launched a new hotel cashback deal with American Express.

If you targetted, you will see this deal under the ‘Offers’ tab for one or more of your Amex cards on the statement page. You need to opt-in. Only 25,000 registrations will be accepted.

I had it on my British Airways American Express Premium Plus card but not my Platinum card. My wife had it on her Preferred Rewards Gold card but not her BA card. Check whatever cards you have …. except Marriott Bonvoy ones, of course!

Holiday Inn Express Wandsworth cashback offer

Here is the deal:

  • receive £75 back when you spend £300 (cumulative)
  • spend must be made by 9th June
  • only valid at selected European hotels

The list of participating hotels is here (PDF).

It is important to note that the list is actually two lists lumped together. My guess is that the original plan was to run separate mid-market and luxury offers and then a decision was taken to merge them.

What I mean is this: pages 1-12 contain mid-market hotels, listed alphabetically by country. On page 12, the list suddenly restarts again (with ‘A’ for ‘Austria’) with around 30 luxury hotels. The German hotels, for example, are on pages 2-4 and also, for luxury hotels, on page 12. Weird.

Participating brands include Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, voco, Staybridge Suites, InterContinental, Regent and Kimpton.

voco St David’s Cardiff is pictured below. The slightly less enticing Holiday Inn Express London Wandsworth is pictured above and is included – whoever took that photograph deserves an award for making it look good ….

Don’t forget to register for IHG’s Spring bonus points offer too

If you stay before 14th April, you can also take part in IHG’s Spring bonus points promotion.

IHG One Rewards is offering 2,000 bonus points for every two nights you stay between 9th February and 14th April.

Registration is required which you can do here. Existing bookings DO count. The nights do not need to be consecutive.

Let’s assume that an IHG One Rewards point is worth 0.4p (which we usually say it is). This means that you’d be averaging a £4 bonus per night – not worth getting too excited about, but throw in £75 of American Express cashback on top and you have a decent deal.

Our full article on the Spring IHG One Rewards offer is here. You can register here – remember that the bonus points offer ends on 14th April. The IHG home page for bookings is here.

The American Express cashback offer runs until 9th June and is valid for the first 25,000 people to register via the American Express website, if you are targetted.

    Don’t see why HI M1 J9 is listed, it’s been a Ukrainian hotel since the war began… the leisure facilities are also in dire need of a refurb.

  • Swifty says:

    New emails being sent out to all my cards say up to 60000 people now. Probs didn’t get many take it up
