American Express is out with a stellar new Amex Offer for an upcoming Airbnb stay – one of the first such Amex Offers we've seen for Airbnb. And while this new offer won't save you money on your reservation, it will earn you a nice stash of points.
You can earn 5,000 bonus Amex Membership Rewards points after booking an Airbnb stay of $250 or more. So if you've got an Amex card like The Platinum Card® from American Express or the American Express® Gold Card and check to see if it's available in your offers. It's also worth checking for it if you've got a Delta co-branded credit card.
This offer is targeted, so not everyone will have it available on their accounts. If you do, simply add it to your card and then use that Amex card to pay for an Airbnb before Dec. 30, 2021. You could book a reservation for far out into 2022 and still get this offer so long as you pay by the end of the year.
This offer was first spotted by Frequent Miler.
The $250 Airbnb stay should make it fairly easy to cash in on this Amex Offer. Amex only requires that you book via the U.S. website before the deadline, but any Airbnb property should trigger the bonus points. It's unclear whether Airbnb Experiences or even Airbnb gift cards will make the cut.
While you've got until the end of the year to book your Airbnb, you may want to add and use this Amex Offer to your card as soon as you see it. These offers can disappear fast.
Where to Find Amex Offers
If you haven’t used Amex Offers before, simply log into your American Express account and scroll down near the bottom of the screen and there should be a box called Amex Offers & Benefits. It’s available through the Amex mobile app as well.
If you see an offer you like, simply add the offer to the card and make a qualifying purchase at that business with your card. In this case, you’ll need to book directly with Delta for the cashback credits to kick in.
You should receive a statement credit for the offer within a few days of making a purchase, though in some cases it can take several weeks. And keep in mind you don’t need to hit the spending threshold in one shot – you can spread it out over several transactions.
