Update: This offer can be combined with Marriott’s global promotion on hotel stays, as well as some valuable targeted promotions they’re offering.

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 the return of a really awesome deal for stays at most Marriott brands.

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 September 3, 2019.

Amex offered an identical promotion this spring, which was valid for stays through June 3, 2019. It’s awesome to see a return of this promotion so quickly.

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

Bottom line

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.

Ideally you’ll see this offer on a co-branded Marriott card, so that you can earn 6x points on your stay while also getting $40 back on $200+ of hotel spending.

  1. good question on the 750 spend at Four Seasons… would this exclude an Amex FHR booking at four seasons if paying at property? Or would that code as Amex?

  2. Woohoo! Just came close to cancelling my AX Bonvoy Biz after the $125 AF posted but convinced myself to keep it another year. Finding this offer on that card is great!

  3. @ david — If you’re paying at the hotel then it should code as Four Seasons. If you’re paying in advance to earn 5x points, I suspect it wouldn’t code correctly.

  4. If I have a points stay coming up, will meals and incidentals count toward the room charges?

  5. It doesn’t specifically state cumulative just wondering

    @ken yes. But it does exclude Vacation Club, Design Hotels, Protea and executive apts.

  6. Hmmm interesting and definitely more interesting than the Hilton Garden Inn offer on my Hilton Amex. But what’s up with all the wine offers? 7 out of 100 offers are for online wine merchants. Maybe if I can get wine shipped to my 20% off Marriott property for a real Bonvoy™ experience

  7. Does anyone know if taxes count toward the $200 minimum? ex. room rate of $190 plus $20 in taxes

  8. I received an e-mail from Amex saying that I had an Amex Offer from Bonvoy, however when I logged in, the offer was not there.
