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 $800 minimum spend, you’ll either get $150 back, or 15k 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.
Also… Amex Platinum comes with a $200 annual hotel credit valid at both FHR and The Hotel Collection and this should stack.
So, you’d be receiving an extra 4k points, and then receive $150 credit/15k bonus and another $200 credit.
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.
