There’s a new Amex Offer out that’s good for $150 back when you spend $800 or more on Fine Hotels & Resorts or The Hotel Collection. This could be a great deal when stacked with the $200 benefit on Amex Platinum cards for a total of $350 back on an $800 booking.
Update: As Chris notes in the comments, it is possible that you’ll have to spend $1,000 to trigger both offers (the $200 Platinum card benefit and the $150 Amex Offer). If you only spend $800, there is a chance that Amex will first credit the $200 Platinum card benefit and then you will not have spent enough to trigger the Amex Offer. Personally, I think they are likely to stack, but it is worth being aware that they may not.
- A new targeted Amex Offer is out on some Platinum cards good for $150 back when you spend $800 or more on Amex Fine Hotels and resorts
- Expires 12/17/21
- Only valid for prepaid bookings via Amex Travel for Fine Hotels & Resorts or The Hotel Collection
- Threshold can be reached in one or more transactions
As a maximizer, most of my Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts bookings are for a single night. I typically find a few situations per year where I can book a single night for less than $200 and get free breakfast for two and a $100 property credit (like our recent stay at the Four Seasons Abu Dhabi). This offer makes such a situation appealing even for a longer stay since you would get nearly half the money back on $800 spend and still get free daily breakfast for two, a local amenity worth $100 (typically a food & beverage credit, though this varies at some properties), and guaranteed 4pm late checkout. This might even appeal to me on a property that would ordinarily be a bit out of my price range thanks to the stack.
I’m not 100% sure that I’ll be able to put this offer to use before it expires, but it certainly might represent a good opportunity for excellent value with low effort, which is a combination I quite enjoy.
