Targeted Amex Offer: Up to 20% off Hotel Stays


amex offers hotels

American Express has released a new offer giving up to 20% off hotel stays. This may also work to purchase gift cards directly at a hotel, although that isn’t guaranteed in the terms.

The Offer

Get a one-time $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $250 or more on all room charges, including room rate, when you pay for your reservation directly with an eligible merchant by 3/31/2016. See terms for exclusions.

Update: According to this Slickdeals thread, there may be alternate version of this offer giving a $25 credit with a hotel stay of $100 or more.

Key Terms

  • Reservations made and paid for with any eligible US American Express® Card accepting domestic and/or non-US merchants between 1/4/16 and 3/31/16 are valid for the offer.
  • Only purchases made directly with eligible merchants are eligible for the offer. Eligible merchants are hotels, motels, and bed & breakfasts that accept the American Express Card.
  • Timeshares, banquets, events, and vacation packages are not “eligible merchants”.
  • Reservations made or paid for with online accommodation services for short term or long term rentals for a room, apartment, home, or property are not valid for this offer.

Offer Availability

This offer is targeted but is available on quite a few of my cards. As of now there isn’t a working Twitter hashtag that I know of.

My card got 50 off 250 offer and my husband’s had the 25 off 100. Both Delta Amex.


So I tested out buying Hyatt gift checks for this offer. I DID NOT receive the normal email from Amex confirming the use of an Amex Offer so I would say this will not work for Hyatt Gift cards/checks.


Ya think? Why would a Hyatt gift “check” have anything whatsoever to do with this Amex promotion?

Deal is an over-priced non-starter for me and my family. (never, ever pay anywhere close to $250 for a stay — and even $100 is a rarity, but to the sheep out there, surrrrre, 20% off an over-priced bill sounds great…. )


None. 0/10+ for both me and the wife.


These are interesting terms. Not only do we have to pay for the stay on the CC but also make the reservation with it? How could they possibly know? Strange


If someone finds out that gift cards work, please let us know. Thank you.
