It’s not just the points-earning element to American Express cards that we love, it’s also the regular and often very generous deals they offer. I get hundreds of pounds back yearly on my travel spend via Amex, simply by keeping a close eye on the offers page of my online account and saving the deals to my card.
At the moment, you can combine two such deals to get a potentially great value hotel stay.
Offer number 1 – £50 off a hotel stay
First of all, check the online offers for your American Express card, and you should find a tasty £50 rebate on a £200+ spend at American Express Travel.
Save this offer to your card (with one click), then make your way over to Amex Travel, where you’ll find the next offer…
Offer number 2 – fourth night free with Amex Travel
Next up, and fully stackable with the £50 discount, is the “fourth night free” offer from American Express Travel.
Simply search for stays of 4 nights or more, and certain hotels will be labelled as offering a “complimentary night”. If you book this having saved the £50 offer above then, assuming the total cost is more than £200 (which is of course likely to be the case), you’ll not only get that fourth night free, you’ll also get a £50 rebate.
To benefit from the fourth night free offer, you need to book by 30 June, for stays up to 14 July.
The 5 star luxury (and very central) La Griffe Roma MGallery By Sofitel is included in the offer.
Booking directly for a (very) long weekend from 29 June to 3 July, it’s around the £850 mark on the non-refundable Advance Saver rate:
So that’s £213.50 a night, and note there’s no breakfast.
With the American Express offer, you will pay £636.75 in total plus you will get breakfast, plus you will get the further £50 off. Accordingly, the total cost will be £586.75.
So that’s £146.69 a night, including breakfast.
Clearly this is just one of many examples, but it’s a good indication of the value available here.
Don’t already have an American Express card?
If you’re a serious miles and points collector or “value travel” fiend, an Amex card is an essential part of your toolkit, with the American Express Gold Charge Card probably the standout option (in addition to being free for the first year). You’ll get 22,000 Membership Rewards points as the enhanced American Express UK sign up bonus, which is more than enough for a return flight in Europe.
Don’t just take my word for it – there are actually two Amex cards featured in the InsideFlyer UK “Top 10 Travel Tips”.
