Marriott has extended an Amex Offer for Marriott Homes & Villas that could score you up to $200 back on a vacation rental stay of $1000+. The offer is $100 back on a purchase of $500+, but it can be used two times. Since Marriott Homes and Villas charges you 50% up front and then 50% once the cancellation window for the property closes, it should be fairly easy to double-dip the offer on the same property.
These rentals earn both elite nights and Marriott Bonvoy points and this Amex Offer will stack with another promotion that Homes & Villas is running that offers 10,000 Marriott points for 3+ night stays that are booked before 9/21.
- Earn 10,000 points on all Marriott Home and Villas bookings of 3+ nights. Book by 9/21/22 and travel by 12/31/22.
- Get a $100 statement credit by using your enrolled eligible Card to spend a minimum of $500 USD in one or more purchases on room rate and room charges for your stay at Homes & Villas by Marriott properties from 7/11/2022 to 12/31/2022. Book at homesandvillasbymarriott.com. Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $200). Must enroll card prior to making purchase.
Terms and Conditions
- Enrollment limited.
- Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible.

- Offer not valid for stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date (for example, if the final payment that occurs 30 days before your stay falls outside of the promotion dates, it will not count towards qualification).
- Limit of 2 statement credits (total of $200 back) per Card Member.
This is the most recent in a series of stackable Homes & Villas offers and it could have the potential to be fairly decent, given the combination of 5x base points, a 10,000 points bonus AND a stack with a widely-targeted Homes & Villas Amex offer that gives $100 back when spending $500 (but up to two times).
You normally pay 50% at the time of booking with Marriott Homes & Villas and 50% after the cancellation window closes, so it would be possible to double-dip the Amex Offer if you’re targeted and book a property with a cancellation window that closes before the offer expires on 12/31.
Let’s say you book a 4 night stay before the 10,000 promo ends on 9/21. Your stay costs a total of $1000 and the dates are sometime before the end of December. You’d be charged $500 at booking (which would trigger the first use of the Amex offer) and then you’d be charged the remaining $500 when the cancellation window closes (normally 14 days before the stay, but check the individual property rules). This would trigger the second use of the Amex credit for a total of $200 off.
Upon checking out you’d get 5x + 10,000 pts on the room charges, not counting any elite or credit card bonus you may have. If the charges on this stay were $800 before fees and taxes, you’d get 14,000 points + any additional points from elite status or credit cards.
That may not be anything that’s worth making a special booking for, it’s definitely worth comparing Homes & Villas rates if you already have plans to use a vacation rental sometime between now and the end of the year.
