Quick Thoughts

This has the potential to be useful for cheap one night stays – or very cheap two night stays. The $100 includes taxes and fees in addition to the base room rate itself, so a $90 hotel room that has $10+ of taxes and fees will be sufficient to trigger the statement credit from the Amex Offer.

Seeing as you’ll be booking through Expedia, you’ll be forgoing the ability to receive status benefits, points earnings, elite night credit earnings, etc. This offer is therefore better when those factors aren’t important to you, perhaps because you’ll be staying at a chain that offers free breakfast for all guests or it’s not a chain you stay with regularly and so don’t care about points earnings. It can be particularly useful when booking independent properties that aren’t part of any kind of loyalty program.

The terms of the offer state that you have to book at expedia.com/amex. That link goes to a landing page specifically for Amex cardholders, so the use of that link might actually be required to trigger the statement credit, unlike some Amex Offers where it doesn’t matter.

That said, it’s worth trying to earn rewards through a shopping portal anyway. What’ll give you the best chance of doing that is to click through to Expedia from a portal, then copying and pasting the expedia.com/amex link into the address bar. There’s no guarantee that that’ll work, but that technique has worked for other types of offers in the past.
