Amex Platinum $200 hotel credit
AND $200 Travel Credit
Nope, you didn’t read that incorrectly. I was able to make use of 2, $200 credits on a single hotel stay. First off, Amex Platinum cardholders get a $200 statement credit when they book a pre-paid Fine Hotel and Resorts or Hotel Collection stay (enrollment required). Second, and I must sheepishly admit, I had completely forgotten about the Amex Platinum $200 travel credit floating around. These were targeted and served as a sort of pre-emptive retention bonus that many Amex Platinum cardholders received in 2020. These can be combined and I was reminded of it prior to booking a hotel stay this upcoming week. Let’s dig in a bit.
Miles…I had no idea about the Amex Platinum $200 Travel Credit. Do I qualify? Check here
That link up above should tell you if your account is eligible, but here’s the skinny:
- If you renewed between 4/20 and 7/20 the credit was available starting 8/20
- For those who renewed 8/20 to 3/21, it was available starting on the first day of your renewal
- Must book via Amex Travel
- flight + hotel
- car rental
- see details for restrictions
Can the Amex Platinum Hotel and Travel credits be combined?
Yep…and I just saved $400 off a hotel booking.
