Earn up to $30 cashback with American Express Shop Small offer

American Express has announced its next Shop Small offer is scheduled for 16-18 September 2016. Over this weekend, American Express credit card holders can earn up to $10 cash back on in-store purchases of at least $20 at participating retailers. All you need to do is register your American Express credit card, make the purchase and you can take advantage of the cash back offer up to three times (meaning you could save up to $30). This offer is only available to the first 60,000 cards to register, so jump on it fast! You can find Shop Small participants near you using the Shop Small map.

While American Express and Vogue's Fashion's Night Out has wrapped up in Sydney and Melbourne over the last week, American Express credit cardholders can still earn $20 cash back when they spend $50 with partnered retailers until 8 September. You can take advantage of the offer up to three times, meaning you could earn $60 cash back if you spend $150 at participating retailers on your Amex card.

Free breakfast and Wi-Fi for Le Club Members using a MasterCard at Accor Hotels

If you’re a member of the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program, you could receive free Wi-Fi and breakfast for up to two people for each day of your stay if you book with your Mastercard. The offer is available at more than 400 participating hotels across 17 countries in the Asia Pacific for stays up until 31 October 2016. Given that Wi-Fiis already free for Le Club members, this deal is only worth it if you were planning a hotel stay during these dates and haven’t already booked accommodation with breakfast included.

Enjoy $1025 flights to Europe, Middle East and Africa and earn triple bonus miles.

Qatar Airways has started the Early Bird Sale season with cheap flights in Economy Class to Europe, the Middle East and Africa. To add an extra layer of allure, this offer is coupled with a triple miles offer and a 10% discount on award redemptions up until 5 September 2016. Flights must be booked for a travel period between 15 September 2016 to 23 June 2017 (though there's a blackout period between 15 December 2016 and 10 January 2017).

If you credit the above flights to your Qatar Airways' Privilege Club program, you'll earn triple the miles. If you're already a member, go to your "My Dashboard" in your online account and register for the triple miles offer before 31 October to receive the extra points.

Then, once you've taken your trip and the miles are credited to your Privilege Club account, you can take advantage of a 10% redemption discount on one award redemption on Qatar Airways flights across all cabins between 5 November and 5 December 2016. All you need to do is quote the code QRTF2016.
