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 are four new targeted Amex Offers, each offering $40 back when you spend $200+ at select brands. Specifically, I see these offers for Fairfield by Marriott, Courtyard by Marriott, Four Points by Sheraton, and SpringHill Suites by Marriott. The offer is valid for stays at US properties through January 31, 2019.
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.
Again, each offer is only valid for stays at a specific brand, and only for hotels in the US. This isn’t valid for any Marriott or SPG family brands other than the ones listed above.
According to the terms you need to book directly with Marriott 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.
Also keep in mind that this promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted. For example, I see the bonus on The Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum® Card from American Express, and The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express.
Was your account targeted for any of these Amex Offers, and do you plan on taking advantage of them?
