There are two new Amex Offers out today that can help you save a nice chunk on upcoming Marriott stays. Both are only valid at properties in the US and US territories, Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico but can nonetheless be worthwhile. Unfortunately, due to the exclusions, I don’t think they will stack naturally.
- Two new Amex Offers came out today that are good for various Marriott properties:
- Save $50 on $250 or more on room and room charges at participating Marriott properties in the US and US territories, Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico from 8/12/21 to 10/12/21 (enrollment required). Note that this offer works at the limited-service properties and some of the mid-tier brands (see more info below and in the offer terms).
- Save $100 on $500 or more or more on room and room charges at participating Marriott properties in the US and US territories, Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico from 8/12/21 to 10/12/21 (enrollment required). Note that this offer works only at the luxury brands (see more info below and in the offer terms).
- The $50 back on $250 offer excludes Ritz, St. Regis, EDITION, Luxury Collection, W Hotels, JW Marriott, Marriott Vacation Club, Design Hotels, Protea Hotels (which would be geographically excluded anyway), Marriott Executive Apartments, Homes & Villas by Marriott, and Vistana. My first instinct was that it would have been much easier to say where this one is valid, but then I realized that “valid at Courtyard, Delta Hotels, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, Renaissance, AC Hotels, Fairfield Inn, TownePlace Suites, Marriott, Aloft, Four Points, Sheraton, Le Meridien, Element Hotels, Autograph Collection and Westin” isn’t much shorter. Marriott needs a brand intervention.The $100 back on $500 offer is valid at Ritz, St. Regis, EDITION, Luxury Collection, W Hotels, and JW Marriott and excludes everything else.
Saving 20% on either $250 or $500 in spend is a nice deal, particularly when you consider that you’ll earn Marriott points on the full spend if you’re paying for room charges. I found both of these offers on an Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business card, so there is additionally the bonus points to be had on that card for Marriott property spend.
I rolled my eyes at the fact that the $100 offer is labeled as “Marriott International Luxury Brands” even though it doesn’t work at international locations outside of Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico. Still, I bet it will be useful for many people. The $50 back on $250 should be very easy to use.
Both offers say that they exclude gift card purchases. However, historically, gift cards purchased at the front desk of a qualifying property have triggered Amex Offers. YMMV as you never know when that might change. Call around before you waste your time driving to places as lots of properties either don’t sell gift cards or are stocked with employees who don’t know how to sell them. Rather than waste a trip, make sure they have them before you go.
I suspect that many people will find a way to put one of these to use at a Marriott property before 10/12/21 and these will likely be popular offers. Keep in mind that you can’t use gift cards to book advance purchase rates. However, I like to stack savings by going through a shopping portal when I book my room. I may with the gift cards at checkout and then get portal rewards and save some money.
