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.

$75 back with Marriott hotel stays

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $75 back when you spend $250+ 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 September 24 and December 31, 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 $250+ 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.

There was also an Amex Offers deal for Marriott stays over the summer that recently expired, but this one is better — the previous offer was for $50 back when spending $200+ (equivalent of up to 25% back), while this offer is for $75 back when spending $250+ (the equivalent of up to 30% back).

Bottom Line

This is a great opportunity to save 30% 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. Are the hilton offers with the same terms? I am specifically wondering can the spend be over multiple stays to trigger the credit?

  2. “For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards”
    *Issued in the United States only

    As my Dutch Amex card definitely does not offer anything like this

  3. Finally an offer that works for stays in Canada and I will probably use it for my winter vacation. Meanwhile, all the offers for Hilton are only available for spend at US properties… I have been considering cancelling my US Amex Gold since COVID but I guess I will keep it for another year now. Normally I’d drive/fly down to the States 3-4 times a year and these Amex offers savings more or less breakeven the annual fee. This year, stuck in Canada and haven’t been able to use a single US Amex offer yet… I really wish Amex would make more non-US spend qualify for Amex offers.

    Yes, these offers apply to US cards. I have similar offers on both my Australian Amex cards, currently Marriott, Hilton and IHG are on offer.

  5. Hi Ben, did you confirm with AMEX that it is indeed cumulative spend over multiple stays? I’m seeing some conflicting verbiage.

  6. In France, with the Air France Amex Platinum, 50€ for 200€ spent. Received it on our main card and also our additionnal at Le Prince de Galles , Paris, this week-end

  7. @Jerry Z, @jason
    I agree – the Amex offers are terrible in Canada.

    They were good when doing the extra points early in COVID but I find now I’m having trouble justifying my annual renewal. Hopefully they bring in some sort of benefits for Canada given that the only travel benefit I’ve been able to use is the travel credit this year.

  8. It’s on my Delta card and I’ll be using this weekend. Thanks for pointing out that it can be multiple stays as we’ll be at airport 1 night and then moving to final destination. I wouldn’t have thought to use it

  9. Amex states on most of the offers if they have to be “single purchase” or “one or more purchases”. This one is poorly written. I have Amex Hilton Aspire that I would normally use for my Hilton stays but I have the offers on my Blue Cash.
    I have two trips coming up and for each, I will be driving around and only stay one or two nights at any town so it is important to know if the offer is a single stay or cumulative.

    I chatted with an Amex rep and he couldn’t confirm if these hotel offers (Hiltons, Marriott, etc.) can be on multiple stays or has to be on a single stay:
    “I’ve checked and can see that your card has enrolled for that offer however unable to see the offers details currently from our end.”

    He then asked me to call the “dedicated team”. I did call the number (800-528-4800 if you want to try) and asked the same question. After taking some time and talking to his manager, the rep confirmed that it can be cumulative. He then tried to make me accept a lower APR promo… Anyway, hope this helps others and the information I received was accurate.

  10. I chatted with a customer service rep today and they told me had to be single purchase. I guess we’ll need to wait for a data point since they don’t seem to know either.

  11. Just a heads up, I attempted to redeem the previous offer for $50 off after spending $200+. I spent a total of $205 in two separate stays. I did NOT receive $50 back. When I called Amex, I was told this was because it needs to be one charge not multiple. The offer terms and conditions are very vague.

  12. Thanks for sharing Elizabeth.

    I chatted again with Amex the other day and this is part of the conversation:

    Amex: “Also, I would like you to know that there is no such award cap for this offer which means you can use this offer in multiple purchases as well”

    Me: “So 2 stays in different months adding up to min purchase will result in getting the award?”

    Amex: “Yes, you are right! However, they must be posted within the offer period. i.e the purchases must post before the offer end date – 12/31/2020.”

    I took a screenshot of this conversation but I doubt that will get me anywhere if they decide not to pay. I will probably end up not trusting these reps and ignore the offer

  13. Following back up with some good news – I just received my $50 credit today. Apparently it’s on a delay compared to other offers. This also confirms that the reps are clueless.

  14. Head’s up- I stayed at a Marriott this last weekend, spent over $500 and got an email saying Congrats of getting a $75 credit (it hasn’t posted yet). However, going somewhere again tonight for a few days and that Bonvoy Marriott offer is no longer attached to my card and I’m not able to bring it back, so maybe it’s a one-time credit.

  15. I didn’t add this offer to any of my cards yet and it has now disappeared on amex site. Brought my available offers below 100 and still can’t see it. Anyone else experience this? Surprised it would be pulled so soon given it expires at end of year but maybe limit was reached of people adding it to account.
