There are a couple of useful new Amex Offers out today for JetBlue and HotelStorm.

Jet Blue

Hotel Storm

HotelStorm Amex Offer New

The Deal

  • Spend $200 or more, get $50 back
  • Terms state “each time”, which indicates that this discount is repeatable
  • #AmexHotelStorm to sync via Twitter

Key Terms

  • Expires 10/12/17
  • Transaction must be charged in USD to qualify

Quick Thoughts

The JetBlue offer appears to be highly targeted. Between my wife and I, we only had the offer on one card. A discount on flights could certainly be helpful if you’re already looking at buying a ticket.

On the HotelStorm side, remember that booking through a third party like this will typically eliminate any elite benefits or point earnings on your stay — it may even mean that you have to pay for Wi-Fi. Still, fifty dollars sounds like the right price point to make that trade in some situations. The fact that the terms state “each time” indicate that it is repeatable — meaning that it might be possible to save $50 on every night of a multi-night stay by simply reserving each night separately. That maneuver could necessitate a room switch, but if you book the same room type it is more likely that the hotel will let you keep the same room throughout the stay. I also find this kind of offer useful for a last-minute change of plans — when hotel rates can often be higher.

The Jet Blue offer does not exclude gift cards. Does anyone know whether a gift card will trigger the credit?

JetBlue doesn’t sell gift cards according to their FAQ

So for Hotel Storm, I guess this means, as a practical matter, it’s not too useful for Europe? The hotel has to bill in USD?

I tried to use Hotelstorm to book a hotel but it took me to Booking.com, which doesn’t require any pre-payment. So I’ll pay at the hotel when check out? How is that going to be billed through Hotelstorm?

Was wondering the same thing…can you even book at hotel directly at HotelStorm.com?

can hotelstorm booking be stackable with tmobile 25% off ? Do we have to book with /amex website ? Won’t amex offer not trigger automatically whichever link you use to book with hotelstorm.

[…] Amex Offer: $50 back on $200 at HotelStorm: The terms of this offer imply that it is repeatable, so this could be a good way to save $50 on your hotel stays. Just keep in mind that you will probably not receive any elite credits / benefits / points on 3rd party bookings like this. (Expires 10/12/17) […]
