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.

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $75 back when you spend $375+ at The Luxury Collection properties. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through January 31, 2019. You can find a listing of all The Luxury Collection hotels here.

It’s possible there’s also a version of the offer for 7,500 bonus Membership Rewards points rather than $75, though I don’t see such an offer on any of my cards.

The promotion is valid for stays at The Luxury Collection properties in the US and US territories. It isn’t valid at any Marriott or SPG family brands other than The Luxury Collection. According to the terms you need to book directly with Marriott/SPG to take advantage of this, and what matters is that you’re billed during the promotion period.

Ultimately eligibility for this should be based on whether you have a qualifying purchase during the promotion period, so as long as you’re charged for an eligible stay during a promotion period, you should be fine. Furthermore, any Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts or Virtuoso bookings should be eligible, since you’ll still be charged directly by the hotel.

Also keep in mind that this promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted. For example, I see the card on The Platinum Card® from American ExpressThe Business Platinum® Card from American Express, and The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express.

Oddly I don’t see this listed on the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card or the Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card.

  1. Just got an offer for 20,000 MR points for $1,000 spend on Air Canada….

    That’s especially generous considering I got the offer on the platinum (and qualify for 5pts/$ base spend with airlines). Nearly a 50% total return on spend at my MR valuation of ~$0.02

  2. I have an award stay coming up at Phoenician, where the resort fee is $40/day. Between resort fee and expected F&B at hotel, I expect to hit the $375. Any idea whether that would result in the credit? I know the terms say it must be a stay, but I don’t think AE has a means of parsing a bill that includes expenses related to a stay. Thoughts?
