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, in particular with Hilton and Marriott, given that Amex issues co-brand credit cards for both of those companies.

We’re now seeing an awesome new offer for stays at Marriott properties.

$50 back with Marriott hotel stays

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $50 back when you spend $200+ at select Marriott Bonvoy properties:

  • This is valid for stays in the US and US territories, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean
  • This is valid for stays between July 31 and September 21, 2020
  • The following Marriott brands are excluded: Marriott Vacation Club, Design Hotels, Protea Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments, Homes & Villas by Marriott International, and Vistana Signature Experiences

Do be aware of the following terms:

  • You have to book directly with Marriott (by phone, through Marriott’s website, or mobile app)
  • Excludes gift card purchases
  • You just have to spend $200+ cumulatively, so you could spend that across multiple stays; taxes and fees should even count towards that total

As you’d expect, you can earn Marriott Bonvoy points for these bookings as well, and take advantage of virtually any other promotions in conjunction with this.

Bottom Line

This is a great opportunity to save 25% off the cost of an upcoming stay at a Marriott property. It’s especially awesome how many Marriott brands are included in this promotion, from limited service to luxury.

Ideally you’ll see this offer on one of the following, so you can maximize your points earning while taking advantage of this offer:

  1. The most annoying thing about these offers is when they are not on the “correct” card. My Marriott offer is on my Delta card, not my Marriott card. Any way to “switch” which card the offer is on?

  2. The offer was on my Vanilla Platinum and Delta Platinum cards, but not on my Gold or Bonvoy Brilliant (bummer). Wasn’t on my Surpass either, but no surprise there…

  3. @anthony – use your Marriott card for everything, and at checkout – pay $200 with your Delta card. Best of both worlds. That $50 savings is much greater than the extra few points.

  4. It stands to reason that this offer wouldn’t be available on a Marriott branded card. Amex [and, presumably, Marriott pay for this] is already throwing benefits at you to stay at Marriott hotels, and you’ve already demonstrated an intention to stay there, so why would they add another incentive?

    I read these offers with interest but with a certain level of indifference because they are US-focused and Amex rarely has the same offers to Australian card members. There are also fewer offers here, it seems, although I have benefited from some good ones ($400 of free groceries at the moment).

  5. Given most people may not be traveling in the near future, it’s worth noting that in the past, these offers have typically also worked if you book a prepaid hotel stay during the offer period and the prepaid charge posts on your card before the end date of the offer, even if the stay itself is farther into the future.

  6. Be thankful it’s not on the Brilliant. Amex would claw back if you double dipped with $300 Marriott annual credit.

  7. I used this succesfully with a stay booked via the AMEX travel portal rather than directly with Marriott.

    Got a great room at the Palace hotel (FHR) on a Sat night in SF in March for what ended costing maybe $ 220 less the $ 50.

    In addition we got the upgrade, (nothing special), $ 100 F&B credit. 2 x breakfast buffets ($ 40 ea.). Late checkout – which we used.

  8. I have Everyday Preferred Rewards/Gold/Platinum/Bonvoy Brilliant/Corp and only saw this offer on the platinum. I don’t know if I’ll go out of my way to use this but if I do, I do.

  9. I only have Bonvoy and Hilton Amex – no offers on those cards. But Chase Sapphire has 10% up to $35.

  10. I see the offer in one of my Amex cards. As always, it’s a bummer for exist aboard like me cos’ properties only in US or US territories are eligible.

  11. Of course I have this offer, and of course it’s after I spent 6 nights with Marriott in the past month… and have no plans to do it again.

  12. I didn’t get the offer. I just get the usual crappy worthless offers from Omaha Steaks and the like.

  13. offer on both primary & authorized cards, will there be 2 rebates (both back on primary account)? of just 1?

  14. I asked AMEX and their internal documents say it has to be a single transaction, which is also my understanding based on the Offer Terms underneath as it does say it has to be a Purchase, rather than purchases.

  15. I used my Delta card which had this promotion at a Marriott property over the weekend, I did not earn at $50 Statement Credit. I earned 5,000 Bonus Skymiles. The terms do not state anything about miles. Did this happen to anyone else?
