For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings and bonus offers. In many cases the offers can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.
To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. These offers come in different forms, including discounts and even in some cases bonus points.
We somewhat frequently see Amex Offers for discounts on hotel stays, and Amex has just rolled out the latest such offer, for St. Regis stays. I don’t think we’ve ever seen an offer for St. Regis stays before, so I’m quite happy about this.
With this new, targeted Amex Offer, you can earn $100 back when you spend $500+ at a St. Regis location by May 31, 2019.
This promotion is valid for stays in the US, US territories, Canada, and Mexico. This isn’t valid for St. Regis properties in any other region, or for stays at any other Marriott brands. You need to book directly with Marriott/St. Regis to be eligible for this offer.

All eligible room rates and room charges should qualify towards this offer, including taxes and other fees. It would appear as if you could use this even for a stay after the deadline, as long as your room is charged prior to the deadline (so if that’s the case you’d want to book a pre-paid rate — just make sure the hotel actually charges you at the time you book, because sometimes hotels don’t charge you right away for pre-paid rates). You don’t have to spend the entire $500 in one transaction, but rather multiple transactions should qualify.
This promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted. I see this offer on all my cards earning Membership Rewards points, including The Business Platinum® Card from American Express , The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express, etc.
Interestingly, however, I don’t see the offer on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express.
Getting 20% back on St. Regis stays in certain increments is a solid value. Amex Offers is such a great program, and for many more than justifies the annual fees on many cards (and in some cases even allows you to “make money” on cards, since these are even on no annual fee cards).
If you book a stay costing significantly more than $500, you can always ask them to charge multiple credit cards at check-out, so that you can maximize your rewards and savings.
