There’s a new Hotels.com Amex Offer that’s giving a $10 statement credit when spending $50+ on Hotels.com gift cards. The offer appears to be targeted as it was only on a couple of my cards.

Hotels.com Gift Card Amex Offer

The Deal

  • Spend $50+ on Hotels.com gift cards in one or more transactions and get $10 back.

Key Terms

  • Expires January 20, 2019.
  • Offer valid only on gift cards purchased through hotels.com/giftcards.
  • Not valid on international site.
  • Purchase must be in USD.
  • Excludes Gift Registry, Corporate/Bulk gift cards and all other purchases on hotels.com.

Quick Thoughts

This Amex Offer seems to come around a couple of times a year and it’s an easy way to lock in a 20% discount for Hotels.com. Hotels.com gift cards can be combined by clicking the Balance Transfer tab on this page. That’s far more convenient as it means you don’t have to keep track of a bunch of different cards once they’ve been combined.

In the past, TopCashback (and possibly other portals) offered 2% cashback, earning you an extra dollar on each purchase. Unfortunately it looks like all portals have stopped offering cashback on Hotels.com gift card purchases.

An even bigger disappointment is that nowadays you can only load the offer to one card which limits its usefulness. I tried adding this Amex Offer to more than one card and didn’t have any success. Last February I stocked up on $1,500 worth of Hotels.com gift cards which had a net cost of $1,170 thanks to a similar Amex Offer and 2% cashback from TopCashback. Sadly those days are gone, so now it’s just $100 worth of cards for $80 (one offer for both me and my wife).

There’s a chance that there’s a ‘Spend $50, get 1,000 Membership Rewards’ version of the offer floating around, but neither my wife nor I had it. Let us know in the comments below if you get that version.
