I found a new Amex Offer on my wife’s Bonvoy Brilliant card today: Spend $1,000 or more, get $100 back.
At first I assumed that this was only for spend at Marriott properties, but reading the fine print I see that this applies to any spend. This is reminiscent of the targeted spend offers that we previously reported on some Amex Membership Rewards cards. Note that the offer details make it clear that this offer is only for primary cardholders of the Bonvoy Brilliant card, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find a similar offer on Hilton Aspire cards (please let me know if you find it there or on other cards).
This is a great offer if you’re targeted for it since it means getting 10% back on $1,000 spend. Also note that this overlaps with the Amex Marriott offers to earn 10X at US gas stations, US restaurants, and Marriott hotels on up to $7,500 through 10/31/20. For example, as long as you are enrolled in each of these offers, you can spend the $1,000 at gas stations, restaurants, and Marriott hotels and you’ll earn both 10 points per dollar (10,000 points) and $100 back!
Here are the full details and terms:

Offer to enroll is only available to existing Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card Members who are Basic Card Members. Eligible transactions can only be made by a Basic Card Member. Additional Card Members are not eligible for this offer. Limited to 1 enrolled Card per Card Member. Your enrollment of an eligible Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Offer is non-transferable. You will receive a one-time $100 statement credit after you spend a minimum of $1,000 in one or more eligible transactions on your enrolled Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™ American Express® Card starting from the time you complete enrollment through 11/30/2020.

Eligible transactions are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. To receive the statement credit, the enrolled Card account must not be cancelled or in default at the time of fulfillment. Any statement credit earned from this offer is in addition to the Marriott Bonvoy points earned as part of your existing Card benefits. Your ability to earn spend-based rewards for the purchase will be based on the amount paid after any statement credit or other discount is applied. Statement credit received from this offer will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 11/30/2020 provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. You may not receive a statement credit if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as qualified for the offer. For example, you may not receive the statement credit if (a) the Merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or (b) the Merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or (c) you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. Note that we may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from the Merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided/shipped by the Merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if the eligible purchase is returned/cancelled or if we, in our sole discretion, determine that you have engaged in abuse or misuse in connection with the offer. Amex Offers are dynamic and personalized, so the offers you see may change. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: K132:0001
