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 select Marriott properties.

$50 Back With Marriott Hotel Stay

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $50 back when you spend $250+ at select Marriott Bonvoy properties:

  • This is valid for stays in the US and US territories
  • This is valid for stays through April 15, 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.

Bottom Line

This is a great opportunity to save 20% 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. @Lucky: I wrote on the “Ask Lucky” if you have seen the new Amex offer for the Delta Reserve card. It looks fantastic in my opinion. “Earn 80,000 bonus miles and 20,000 MQMs after you spend $5,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. Plus, earn an additional 20,000 bonus miles after your first anniversary of Card Membership. “

  2. How would this work on the Amex Bonvoy Luxury card with $300 in annual Marriott credit? Would the $50 come off the $250 first before it affects the $300 credit?

  3. Mohammad – It double dips. Let’s say you spend exactly $300 on a Marriott stay with this offer activated and your full Brilliant credit available. You get $350 back ($300 Marriott credit, $50 Amex Offer credit).

  4. I want to clarify that you can make a qualifying booking through a STARS or Virtuoso travel advisor and additionally get STARS/Virtuoso amenities at Marriott’s luxury brands (breakfast for 2 daily and a $100 credit). “Booking directly with Marriott” disqualifies wholesaler bookings (expedia, etc.).

    A travel agent booking made either through Sabre or through the STARS website is a direct booking made in Marriott’s own reservation system.

  5. I wasn’t targeted on Marriott Bonvoy card or any my Delta Reserve or Gold cards.

    I had received the earlier offer of spend more than $25 get a $25 statement credit at the beginning of the year.

  6. My offer was 45 off 300 as well. And didn’t show up on my Marriott card but only on my Blue Business Plus card.

  7. I know the terms always say you have to book direct for these offers, but in practice, as long as it’s not a pre paid rate and you are charged directly by the hotel at checkout, it’ll trigger the credit. I’ve done this multiple times.

  8. Showed up for me on my Platinum, but not Gold, Green, or Delta Plat. Now the dilemma: staying at Marriott next week, do I use Plat to get $50 back, or Bonvoy Boundless for the points? Maybe I’ll split the ticket.

  9. Didn’t show up on my personal Platinum, business Platinum, Gold card, Everyday Preferred card or Bonvoy card. There are a bunch of Hilton related offers on there though.

  10. Nothing on any of my six (four personal and two business) Amex cards. None on my wife’s four Amex cards either.
    I am convinced that they don’t target those of us who have upcoming reservations.

  11. It will target you even if you have stays booked I have 2 stays booked during the target window. Offer only appeared on Plat card $300 for $45 off
