As an American Express card member, you may know that your card entitles you to certain travel privileges. For example, you can book your travel through the American Express Travel service, where you will find a lot of offers and earn rewards for the travel purchases you make (with an eligible rewards card). What you may not know is that you can get immediate discounts and privileges just by using your Amex card to pay for your travel bookings.

Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a diverse global portfolio of independent hotels with 5 unique collections, lets you enjoy a complimentary third, fourth, or fifth night when you book two, three, or four consecutive nights. You will have to pay for the full booking using your American Express® Card, and bookings must be made through a Preferred Hotel Group brand website. The complimentary night offer varies by hotel. Use the promo code MKTAMX between now and March 31, 2016 to enjoy this extra night at no added cost.

Hyatt Hotels. Over 35 Hyatt properties around the world are American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts program members. When you use your Amex card to make a reservation at a participating Hyatt through the Platinum Travel Service (an American Express travel service), you can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast for (up to) 2 people every day for the duration of your stay. Other privileges include a complimentary room upgrade (this is subject to availability at the time that you check-in) and guaranteed late check-out at 4 PM.

LHW. The Leading Hotels of the World Ltd. Is one of the world's largest luxury hotel groups, with close to 430 hotels, resorts and spas in 80 countries. When you use your American Express® Card to book and pay for a two-night consecutive stay, you will receive a complimentary third night's stay. This offer is valid until the 30 June, 2015. Terms and conditions apply.
