Amex Offers for Prepaid Hotel Stay

Amex Offers for Prepaid Hotel Stay

  1. AJP

    I’m hoping to use an Amex offer (spend $250 or more, get $50 back at Omni hotels) for a trip later this fall. The offer expires before the stay, though, so my strategy is to book a prepaid rate. The offer seems to support this (“…when you pay for your stay with Omni Hotels & Resorts from 5/16/2019 to 9/9/2019” and “Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date.”), that is, it seems it’s about when the room is paid for, not when the stay happens.

    Has anyone done this before (successfully or not)? Any advice? Thanks.
