American Express has launched a handful of different Amex Offers that can help you save up to 20% on hotel stays this summer and fall at Hilton, Marriott, Intercontinental, and Kimpton properties.
The offers vary by hotel chain or property, but they’ll give you $45 to $60 back after spending $225, $250, or $500 on your American Express card. Almost any property within each chain will qualify for savings, from budget-level hotels to high-end luxury resorts. The one catch here is that, for most (but not all) of these offers, it’s only good for properties in the U.S. – a trip abroad won’t trigger the savings.
Just add the offer to your card, book direct with the hotel, hit the spending requirement and voila – you can save up to 20%. Critically, you don’t have to rack up $225 to $300 or more in charges in one fell swoop. As with all Amex offers, you can reach the spending requirement over multiple transactions. You can even do so through a combination of paying for your room and room charges once you’re at your hotel.
But these offers are targeted, so not every Amex cardholder will see them in their accounts. Fortunately, it seems like most Platinum Card® from American Express and American Express® Gold Cards are targeted – as well as some co-branded Hilton Honors American Express cards, too. Just log in to your Amex account and see what’s available!
Here’s a look at each of the hotel offers.
Hilton Hotels Amex Offer
You can earn $50 back when spending $250 at all Hilton, Curio Collection, or Canopy properties. Only properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories are eligible, but this offer is good for stays all the way through Oct. 31, 2021.
Like all Amex Offers, this is targeted – but it seems to be very widely available. Just log in to your American Express Account and see if you can add it to your American Express card.
You’ll need to book your Hilton stay directly with Hilton to trigger this offer – booking through a third-party site won’t qualify. And the offer warns that some of the cheapest rates – like Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and non-refundable rates – aren’t eligible, either.
Waldorf Astoria, Conrad & LXR Amex Offer
Yes, even Hilton’s highest-end properties are getting in on the action.
Spend $500 at Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, or LXR and you’ll get $100 straight back. Just as with above, only properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories like Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are eligible. But this one is good all the way through the end of 2021, so you’ve got plenty of time to use it.
DoubleTree & Hilton Tapestry Amex Offer
And even some of the cheaper hotel brands in Hilton’s portfolio qualify for these savings.
You can get $45 back when spending $225 or more at DoubleTree and Tapestry properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories. Once again, charges through Oct. 31, 2021 qualify – and you don’t have to rack up $225 in charges in one fell swoop to trigger this credit.
Once again, only direct bookings through Hilton will trigger the Amex Offer. And the cheapest advance purchase or non-refundable rates don’t make the cut, either.
Marriott Amex Offers
Whether you’re eyeing a basic Marriott or one of its luxury brands, there’s an Amex offer that can save you up to 20%.
For starters, you can get $50 back after spending $250 at most Marriott properties.
Or are you planning a stay at a high-end property like Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, EDITION, The Luxury Collection, W Hotels, or a JW Marriott? You can get $100 back after spending $500 or more.
And unlike most of the other Amex offers for hotels you’ll see here, these Marriott Amex offers go farther than the U.S. They’ll also work at Marriott properties in Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. In both cases, they’re good for hotel stays through Oct. 12, 2021.
Intercontinental & Kimpton Hotels Amex Offer
This offer will get you a $60 credit after spending $300 or more at Intercontinental or Kimpton hotels throughout the U.S. This one is valid only through Oct. 18, 2021, which still gives you plenty of time to use it.
Other IHG hotel chains like Holiday Inn, Hotel Indigo, and Crowne Plaza won’t qualify.
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. 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.
