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.
Amex frequently has promotions for hotel stays, which can save you money or earn you bonus points for stays you’d make anyway. The company has just rolled out its latest such promotion, which is one we’ve seen a few times before.
There’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $60 back when you spend $300+ at InterContinental properties in the US. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through December 31, 2020.
Ideally you would see this offer on the Amex Green Card, since it offers 3x Membership Rewards points on travel purchases, including hotel spending. That way you could earn bonus points while taking advantage of this offer.
You need to book directly with IHG to take advantage of this. There’s no requirement that the entire $300 be spent on one stay, so you should be able to earn the bonus based on cumulative spending over multiple stays.
Let me once again emphasize that this promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted for the cards that I have.
Since you’re booking direct with InterContinental you can still earn IHG Rewards Club points for your booking to get even more value. You can even combine it with IHG’s current global promotion offering up to 4x points, or IHG’s current new member bonus.
