We recently covered a new American Express cashback offer with NH Hotels and nhow hotels.
It is a generous deal. You will earn £50 cashback on £150 spend before 25th August.
It is valid at participating hotels (click here, PDF) across Europe, including the nhow hotel in London. A few European Anantara and Tivoli hotels are also included, since NH now controls these.
NH Hotels is an Avios partner but ONLY with Iberia Plus, not British Airways Executive Club.
The standard Avios earning rate with NH Hotels and nhow is shown here at iberia.com. You earn between 200 and 450 Avios per night depending on the quality of the hotel. To earn Avios at NH Hotels, you need to open an Iberia Plus account at iberia.com and give that number to the hotel. British Airways Executive Club numbers are not accepted.
Once the Avios arrive in your Iberia Plus account, you can transfer them to British Airways using the ‘Combine My Avios’ feature online. This HfP article explains in detail how ‘Combine My Avios’ works.
The Amex cashback deal is now even more attractive. Until 31st August, you will earn triple Avios on NH Hotels stays – on top of your £50 cashback.
The offer doesn’t show on the Iberia website but is outlined on this page of the NH Hotels site.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
