If you’re thinking about a Princess Cruise, this is an awesome return on spend. This morning, Greg wrote about our newly-updated Reasonable Redemption Values. Based on our newly-calibrated valuation, that puts this offer at a value of $348.75 if you have the Membership Rewards version — though you could certainly get more value than that out of 22,500 Membership Rewards with some effort at maximization.
Keep in mind that the terms state that you must book direct and between 5/3-6/30. I’m not positive that a payment on a cruise that was booked previously wouldn’t trigger the offer, but the terms indicate that it wouldn’t. The terms also indicate that you have to book direct. I haven’t booked previous cruise deals, but I believe that when you book through an agent the charge is typically put through from the cruise line directly, so maybe you could book through the agent of your choice and still trigger this. If someone has done a previous Princess Cruises Amex Offer, share your experience in the comments.
Overall, a good return if you’re booking a cruise. You may even be able to stack something back from a shopping portal to save a bit further.
