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. For example, in February we saw an offer rolled out for $100 off a St. Regis stay of $500+. Well, now we’re seeing an even more widely useful one for Marriott stays.
At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $40 back when you spend $200+ at a Marriott Bonvoy property in the US (or US territories). The offer is valid for stays through June 3, 2019.
Do be aware of the following terms:
- You have to book directly with Marriott (either by phone, or through Marriott’s website or mobile app)
- Excludes gift card purchases
- Excludes Marriott Vacation Club, Design Hotels, Protea Hotels, and Marriott Executive Apartments
- You just have to spend $200+ cumulatively, so you could spend that across multiple stays
It’s possible there’s also a version of the offer for 4,000 bonus Membership Rewards points rather than $40, though I don’t see such an offer on any of my cards.
This is a great opportunity to save 20% off the cost of an upcoming Marriott stay in the US. I love this promotion since it’s valid at most Marriott brands in the US, rather than only being for one or two brands.
In theory it seems like it may even be possible to double dip this promotion with the St. Regis one, and score both $100 and $40 back on a $500+ St. Regis stay.
This offer is available on all of my Amex Membership Rewards cards, though I don’t see it on any of my Marriott Bonvoy credit cards. Personally I’d probably split my payment at check-out, and put $200 on the card that has this offer, and put the remaining on a card that offers bonus points for hotel spend.
