    Three times I followed up on chat in the last few months and been told to wait the full 90 days, you have been luckier than me at finding someone who will help.

    Chat generally just read off the script, hence the 90 day default response.

    Will find time to give them a call later and report back.

    Can anyone comment on how frequent the various hotel brand Amex Offers crop up, and more importantly: how often non-UK hotels are included in the terms? (For clarity, today’s IHG offer on the main page is the general type of offer I’m referring to…)

    And are there ever offers for other prominent UK sites that tend to have free or reasonable international delivery fees (e.g. The Hut, Asos, Next, etc.)? For Selfridges, I am already aware that there are offers from time to time.

    If there is a site that tracks and lists these offers, I’d be happy to be directed to it!

    For context, I am a non-UK person, but travel to the UK/Europe relatively frequently, as well as order from a number of UK stores that deliver abroad. After discovering that the UK Amex Offers for hotels are valid at many properties outside the UK (unlike the U.S. Amex Offers that are nearly always for U.S. properties only), I’ve started to wonder if getting a UK card might make the most sense (already have an ICC and see that a GBP Platinum can also be issued through that service, which I assume would be a “full” Amex UK Platinum with Offers and all, unlike ICC cards?)

    Comes and goes. Would expect to see far fewer hotel offers now – the last 2 years has been a blip. Remember they are hugely expensive for IHG – they lose money on these deals given the modest fees paid by the hotels to use the brand.

    Thanks for the insight! And would you happen to know if indeed a Sterling Platinum issued via ICC is a “full service” card with the same suite of benefits and offers as one not issued via the ICC route (Amex Offers, self-service via Amextravel.com, support via chat/app and not just phone, etc.)?

    I’ve not done the 250 one yet, but the Platinum one credited within a few days. But I think others have also reported delays on that one.

    Is there a way to accelerate the receipt of those cash back?
    I’ve been waiting for a bunch of Morrisons and John Lewis cash backs, and it is annoying to keep track of all those and chase them.

    I’ve had about 10 Morrison shops so far an NONE have posted thus far.

    Seems to be a general slowdown – I’ve got a Gett missing after a week (normally two days) and nothing on a pile of LNER done last week.

    It’s a pain because occasionally I get offers on cards I don’t actually use, and if the cashback doesn’t post quickly I am forced to pay off the statement and then see the card go into a small credit.

    Best to use Virgin Atlantic card with LNER at the moment because not only will you get 8% in Virgin cashback but also a further 8% cashback from Airtime Rewards 😉

    +1. Good start to the week. Does Hilton charge pre-paid rates directly by the hotel or by a central booking system?

    By the hotel.
    I wonder if any of my future booked hotels will be up for refunding and recharging to an amex with this offer?

    Thanks! So weird it’s on all of our plat c@sh back cards but not on gold or BAPP cards. Well, had been thinking of cancelling those two, now decision made easy.

    It’s on my Gold, Green and all the related supps.

    Seems like a mix, it appears on my Cent but not BA but is on Cashback, but is on partners BA and not Cashback. Seems to appear on all Plat Business.

    I know I’m probably answering my own question but this offer is valid only the properties listed? I had presumed that would be all Hiltons, but I don’t see the Doubletree Queensferry Crossing in Fife, which is where I’m going, damn sod’s law!!

    Got it on my Plat and BAPP supp card.

    Can’t see us using it though, Hilton prices have shot up for the rest of the year, some 3x what I paid only last month!

    Have any hotels not raised their prices yet?

    I think more to do with supply and demand than some piddly AMEX promotion.

    Got the Hilton offer on BAPP.

    Also have 10% back (up to £50) at Harrods, when spending over £150 on the same card.

    Similar, but have to spend over £200 for the rebate.

    Also have a £10 rebate when you spend £100 on Regent Street or St James’s.

    I note the Hampton in Torquay is missing too. All other hotels that I use are in the list.
