Forums Payment cards American Express Minor Hotels cashback – online booking/payment triggered?

  • dahokolomoki 105 posts

    Looking to book one of the eligible hotels on the Minor Hotels £50 off £150 cashback that I have on my card.

    T&Cs state “checkout spend” only…

    And the cheapest rates on their direct website ( are online prepayment rates. Does anyone know if booking the prepaid rate on the site triggers the cashback?

    Sometimes the prepaid charge is routed to come from the actual hotel merchant ID… wondering if its the same with NH Hotels. Looking to see if anyone has successfully booked a prepaid rate online and got the cashback!

    As it happens I just booked an NH via the GHA Discovery website.

    Despite it being a pre-paid rate, no money has been taken after 48 hours so I suspect the hotel won’t actually bother and I will end up paying on arrival.

    Do NOT book the NH site because GHA Discovery has an ‘opt in’ offer of triple D$ for NH at the moment, plus a separate bonus of D$15 for an app booking.

    Thanks Rob for the tip! Didn’t realise there was a GHA offer, will do that and cross my fingers for the payment 🙂
