Amex in the UK has published it’s discount/bonus point promotions for the next few months. For those interested in travel, two stuck out.
1. Bonus Points on Eurostar Travel
One Extra Bonus Membership Rewards point for each £1 spent, after you register your card. Valid 11 Nov to 16 December. You need to book at eurostar.com
2. Half Price stays at Intercontinental Hotel Group properties
These include the Intercontinental’s themselves, plus the Holiday Inn’s and variants, Crowne Plaza. Only those located in the UK, Andorra, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Russia and Spain participate.
Health Warning – in the past people have been denied stay credit and points for this type of promo as the average room rate becomes too low to credit.
2 nights for the price of 1 discount is mainly available on Friday, Saturday and Sundays (some hotels might offer midweek availability). Book before the 31st December 2013 for stays until 28th February 2014. I found availability at the more business designed locations between Christmas and New Year, for example at Docklands.
This is the booking link.
The full range of offers is here. There are shopping and dining offers in addition to the travel offers mentioned.
