Amex Offers: Save $60 On A $300+ Kimpton Stay

Filed Under: American Express, IHG Rewards

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. They’ve just rolled out their latest such offer, which is one we’ve seen a couple of times in the past year.

There’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $60 back when you spend $300+ at Kimpton properties in the US. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through May 1, 2019.

You need to book directly with Kimpton to take advantage of this. While it’s not explicitly stated, I’d assume booking through IHG works as well, since that’s considered a direct booking (typically what matters is that you’re not making a third party booking). Other IHG brands, including Holiday Inn and InterContinental, don’t qualify.

Furthermore, what matters is that you’re billed during the promotion period (so in theory a prepaid stay for a future date could qualify, as long as it’s billed during the promotion period).

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 Kimpton you can still earn IHG Rewards Club points for your booking to get even more value. You can even combine it with the “Free Nights Faster” promotion that IHG is offering at the moment.

Lastly, if you do stay at a Kimpton through February 17, 2019, make sure you provide the secret social password, which is “chilled to perfection.” This will get you a special surprise at check-in.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Kimpton Amex Offer?

  1. I have some repenting to do to them. I messed up back in 2005 when I had my 1st American Express card, Ran it up and got a chargeoff. I always said someday, I’ll communicate with them that I was not in a right state of mind and ask for forgiveness and hope that the future side hustle millionaire status will hopefully have them see me in a different light and give me a 2nd chance, now that I’m frugal and financially responsible.

  2. Targeted and ready to pull the trigger, but would love a data point as to whether the IHG booking will work, as per Lucky’s mention above. If you start at Kimpton, it does move you to IHG on the booking page. I want to, however, use Ebates for 4% cash back at IHG (direct). If folks have tried this with positive results, please let me know. TIA!
