We post a lot of Amex Offers because I still think they are one of the most overlooked benefits of carrying an Amex. Hotels have been something Amex has had some great offers on, but I can’t remember ever getting an Amex Offer that targets the American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts AND The Hotel Collection programs. We saw a FHR Amex Offer last year similar to this, but this one now includes The Hotel Collection.

While it does require quite a hefty $850 minimum spend, you’ll either get $200 back, or 20k Amex points depending on the offer you’re targeted for.

This is only valid on a prepaid stays, but don’t forget, when you prepay an Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts property you’ll earn 5x times when you pay with an Amex Plat or Business Plat.

Stack with Amex Platinum $200 FHR/THC credit

Also… Amex Platinum comes with a $200 annual hotel credit valid at both FHR and The Hotel Collection and this should stack.

A prepaid stay earn 5x points so at $850 you’d get:

  • 4250 Amex points
  • $200 Amex Offers credit
  • $200 Amex Platinum credit

Not too shabby!

Amex Offers In general

I find throughout the year the savings that can be had by adding Amex Offers to your targeted cards can outweigh your annual fee without taking any other benefits into consideration. Maybe not the entirety of the $1200+ that I pay in Amex Annual fees from my 6 cards, but every bit helps.

Here are the 9 American Express Cards that I keep and links to their current offers and why we have them in our wallet and recommend your consideration.

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex℠and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.
