Center Parcs discount – RARE!

Have you ever tried to find a Center Parcs discount code? Good luck – they don’t exist. The brand is so successful they rarely (if ever) offer discounts.

In fact, the Center Parcs Black Friday ‘deal’ is particularly lame – free rental for 2 x adult bikes. But only for breaks taken between Monday 8 January 2024 and Monday 5 February 2024.

This Center Parcs discount is worth £84. To claim, you must book today (30th November 2023) and select ‘Free adult cycles x2’ during the checkout process This option only appears when making a booking for a break between the specified dates.

However, American Express Gold card holders can boost their savings using one of their Amex offers. Cardholders are being offered a £75 statement credit when they spend £1000 or more on a Center Parcs holiday.

Note that the Amex Center Parcs discount can be used for any dates next year including school holidays. However, you must make your booking before December 16th 2023. The offer is only available to the first 8,000 account holders to save it to their card*. Obviously you will also need to pay for the holiday using your Amex Gold card – but you will also earn one transferrable reward point for every £1 you spend.

These are not earth-shattering savings, but if you’re planning a new year trip to Center Parcs, the £159 saving may be welcome.

Want to take advantage of this Center Parcs discount but don’t yet hold an American Express Gold card? You can use my Amex referral link to earn a 30,000 rewards points sign-up bonus too.

Another Amex Center Parcs Discount Code

UPDATE 17/05/2024: An email newsletter landed in my inbox today with a genuine Center Parcs discount code: SAVE50

The code is valid for ‘all spring and early summer breaks when you book before midnight on 21st May‘.

Looking at the Amex T&Cs, it would appear you can “stack” the Amex rebate with the Center Parcs discount code to give a £125 total discount on your next forest lodge holiday…


The UK’s favourite middle class holiday camp is offering another Center Parcs discount code to American Express cardholders. This is highly unusual in the run-up to the summer holidays.

As always, the discount is not earth-shattering. Amex card holders will receive a £75 ‘statement credit’ when they spend over £1000 on a Center Parcs break. That’s the equivalent of a 7.5% discount.

The Center Parcs discount code is available to the first 10,000 American Express card holders who activate the deal from the online account portal. The holiday booking transaction should be detected automatically, no discount code is actually required. The £75 credit will appear on your next statement. If not, Amex customer support are generally very good at making things right.

And don’t forget, you’ll earn at least 925 American Express Reward Points for your booking (one per pound spent). Reward Points are extremely useful because they can be traded for other loyalty points, such as Avios or Virgin Red points.

This particular offer is probably only of interest if you are already planning a trip to one of the Center Parcs parks. But as the famous supermarket slogan says, ‘every little helps‘. Just make sure you complete and pay for your booking before the offer ends on July 13th.

If you don’t yet have an American Express card, you can use our custom referral link to receive a 22,000 Membership Rewards bonus (equivalent to 22,000 Avios).
