A new targeted Amex Offer came out today for The Leading Hotels of the World: Spend $300 or more, get $60 back (enrollment required). I think this may work out as a nice (unofficial) stack for many people since I expect that a number of properties are included in the Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts program.

I’ve not stayed at a Leading Hotels of the World property. One Mile at a Time explains LHW as sort of a marketing group that loosely ties together a bunch of independent properties like Small Luxury Hotels of the World (a partner of World of Hyatt).
However, in One Mile at a Time’s post about how LHW’s loyalty program (Leaders Club) became free to join this year (and it comes with some maybe decent perks like free continental breakfast and the potential to earn a pre-arrival upgrade after your first stay), Ben noted that many Leading Hotels of the World properties are available on Virtuoso. By extension, I assume that likely means that many of them are also available via Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts.
If you do find a Leading hotel in the FHR program, this could potentially make for a good stack for rates paid at the hotel. I bolded that part because I do not expect this offer would stack with the new Amex Platinum card benefit of $200 back on a prepaid Fine Hotels & Resorts booking since those prepaid rates are charged differently through Amex Travel. However, if you are booking a rate paid at the hotel, despite offer terms that make it sound like the offer won’t trigger, I have always had success with Amex Offers like this one working in that type of situation.
I’d therefore expect this deal to be particularly useful on a multi-night stay. Use your Amex credit for one prepaid night and then make another booking for a subsequent night or nights. Keep in mind that you may not get a fresh $100 credit for the second reservation, but you should get free breakfast for two daily, free Wi-Fi and late checkout.
If you having a Leading Hotels of the World booking in mind, getting sixty bucks back certainly isn’t a bad deal, though I probably won’t seek one out just to use the offer.
