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.

This week we’ve seen some great new offers for hotel stays, including for stays at several Hilton and Marriott brands. Now there’s a new Amex Offer for a Marriott brand that was excluded from the last promo.

With this new, targeted Amex Offer, you can earn $100 back when you spend $500+ at a Ritz-Carlton in select locations by December 24, 2018.

This promotion is valid for stays in the US, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Canada, Mexico, Aruba, and Cayman Islands.

All eligible room rates and room charges should qualify towards this offer, including taxes and other fees. It would appear as if you could use this even for a stay after the deadline, as long as your room is charged prior to the deadline (so if that’s the case you’d want to book a pre-paid rate — just make sure the hotel actually charges you at the time you book, because sometimes hotels don’t charge you right away for pre-paid rates). You don’t have to spend the entire $500 in one transaction, but rather multiple transactions should qualify.

This promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted. In my case, all of my American Express cards (with the exception of my Hilton Card, understandably) are targeted for the offer, including The Platinum Card® from American ExpressThe Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card, and Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card.

The ideal would be to have this offer on a Starwood Card, since you’d earn 6x Marriott points for your purchase while also saving money.

Getting 20% back on Ritz-Carlton stays in certain increments is a solid value. Amex Offers is such a great program, and for many more than justifies the annual fees on many cards (and in some cases even allows you to “make money” on cards, since these are even on no annual fee cards).

If you book a stay costing significantly more than $500, you can always ask them to charge multiple credit cards at check-out, so that you can maximize your rewards and savings.

Was your account targeted for this Ritz-Carlton offer, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?

  1. Hmmm aa tough decision now. I have 2 nights upcoming in the Caymans. Was debating the Westin because of Free Platinum Breakfast since Ritz doesn’t have free breakfasts for Platinums. Now with $100 rebate this that helps offsets it a lil bit.

  2. Got this offer on the Starwood Business card.

    Still need to hit the $5k spending for the Starwood Luxury card upgrade and 100K points bonus for the personal card, but then have a booking for RC SF in Nov where I can use this Amex offer, too. Not too shabby.

  3. Multiple browser method not working.

    “Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.”

  4. I should prob know this but can this be used with personal and AU cards, as in twice, when its on both logins considering this “Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.”

  5. Hey Lucky,

    Do you have any idea about whether I could use $300 credit on luxury card towards Ritz Carlton properties or not? This would be a great offer for me if I could!!!
