Amex Offers Marriott Hotels :
American Express regularly runs Marriott “Amex Offers” and their latest is back and it’s double banger. There are two, updated Amex Offers that range from spend $200 get $50 aimed at the non-lux properties, and then spend $800 get $200 at Home and Villas. There are some exclusions, which I’ve included below, but it’s pretty broad. Another thing worth noting: if you were to book a Marriott Hotel property via Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts, you’d not only get all of the FHR benefits, but if you spend more than $200 on property, you’d get a credit as well. Pretty awesome stack if you ask me. ( We used Amex FHR to stay at Bacara, feature image, and got $100 resort credit, breakfast, and an upgrade ). One thing to also note – the exclusions explicitly mention gift cards, but in the past, if those were purchased at a property ( which isn’t always easy to do ) they have triggered the credit.
Amex Offers helps me justify why I keep 9 Amex cards
Here are the 7 American Express Cards that I keep and links to their current offers + why we have them in our wallet. We not only get targeted for more Amex Offers, but also receive referral bonuses ( and so can you ) on each and every card. It’s how we earn over 500k points a year without spending a dime.
