There’s a new targeted Marriott Amex Offer out today which is twice as good as the normal kind as this latest offer is giving $200 back when spending $500 rather than only $100 back. It’s only valid at half a dozen of their brands, but there could be a workaround to use it at other Marriott brands.

Marriott Luxury Brands Amex Offer spend $500 get $200 12.15.23

Quick Thoughts

This Amex Offer is fairly restrictive seeing as it’s only valid at six of their brands – The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, EDITION, The Luxury Collection, W Hotels & JW Marriott – and only at their properties in the U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. However, the return on your spend is very good seeing as you get $200 back when spending only $500 which shouldn’t be hard at these brands.

This offer can even work on award stays at these brands if you end up charging $500 or more to your room via meals, spa treatments, etc.

There’s another workaround if you have any of these properties where you live or where you’ll be visiting by mid-December. Provided they have Marriott gift cards and know how to process them, you could buy a $500 Marriott gift card from the front desk at an eligible property to trigger the $200 statement credit. You can then save that to use at nearly all of Marriott’s brands – not just these six luxury brands. If you happen to have a physical Marriott gift card already, you can ask the front desk to reload that card instead which could be useful if they don’t have any cards in stock themselves. You might note that the terms exclude gift card purchases, but provided you buy them from a front desk that’s always worked in the past. That exclusion seems to refer to buying Marriott gift cards online as those don’t trigger the Amex Offer.

Did 500 at Ritz via a Marriott GC reload. Did not receive an email saying offer used. Will wait a few days and msg support.


Did you get credit yet?


Nope – I’ll message them tomorrow


I would like to stay at JW Marriott around the Christmas holidays (after the 12/15 expiration date). If I prepay for the stay now (therefore the charge appears before the expiration date), do I still get the $200 credit. I think I would but wanted your opinion.


Offer activated on Plat. Stayed @ RC Tysons Corner and final bill was $516 and did not get $200 credit ☹


did it ever come through?

Joel A.

if you live in Orange County California. in my stay in ritz laguna niguel, i separately purchase $500 GC at gift shop. i got back the $200 credit (worked for me). i should have save 85k free night stay, resort fee, valet parking if i have known that this will work.

Do I have to have a stay? Or just walk in and purchase a gift card?


My offer isn’t nearly as good, spend $1000 get $200 back.

Jeff Cook

How do I become eligible if I don’t receive the “targeted” offer, or can I? I have Amex Platinum as well as Amex Bonvoy and I don’t see this in either of the “Offer” sections for the cards.


I have an existing booking with a best flexible rate that happens to fall within the timeframe of the offer.
Would that still work since presumably I would be charged upon checkout (which will be within the timeframe), or do I need to re-book?
I’d like to avoid re-booking as the prices I booked under have increased substantially.


Thank you very much! I thought that might be the case but thought I should double check my thought process. 🙂


any idea if these brands in ny sell gc?


Will this stack with the $200 FHR credit ?


how do you plan to stack? certainly can’t use marriott gc on amextravel site


Does anyone have a good method on using these gift cards? I’ve probably stayed at half a dozen in the past couple years and only one knew how to use my gift card to pay for the room. They end up giving me a “we’ve already charged your card on file” spiel.

I used gift cards one time and had them applied when I checked in. I was told that since my gift card was less than the total that it could be applied before check out.

Michael Tarlow

There used to be 4 luxury hotels in Boston where you could buy gift cards. They all are now directing me to purchase online.

Chris Wright

I called the ritz today and they told me they have them

Michael Tarlow

They have them at the spa, not the front desk.

Chris Wright

Would that still count for the credit?

Michael Tarlow

I don’t know.

Wife had $200 version, I had a $150 version.


I had $150, but luckily I had it on my Bonvoy Brilliant card.


The good thing about AMEX US is that same offer shows up on both of my AMEX cards, and I can choose to assign which offer to which card. Marriott offers definitely go to my Bonvoy Brilliant but Green Card still very good for hotel stays 3X rewards.

Larry S

I got my offer today on my AmEx Bonvoy Brilliant, but it was for $150 off $500. Have a Ritz stay coming up in November, so will be perfect.


Anyone know how region locked these offers usually are? Would it work in Asia and Japan (yes, I read the terms, but not sure if anyone has experience with the amex offers still working)

Tom A

No regional specificity, so it will certainly work anywhere worldwide in one of the brands specified.

Tom A

Dang, hadn’t looked at the terms in detail. I think you are right and Singapore will not qualify…
