American Express is out with a widely available new Marriott Amex Offer: Spend $250, Get $75 Back. If you spend exactly $250, this amounts to an excellent 30% rebate. Deal expires 12/31/20.
Marriott Amex Offer
- Get a one-time $75 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $250 USD on room rate and room charges for your stay at participating properties across the Marriott Bonvoy™ portfolio’s 30 hotel brands from 9/24/2020 to 12/31/2020.
Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card. Offer valid only at participating Marriott Bonvoy™ properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Reservations must be made online at Marriott.com, via the Marriott Bonvoy™ App or by calling 1-888-236-2427. Excludes Marriott Vacation Club®, Design Hotels™, Protea Hotels®, Marriott Executive Apartments®, Homes & Villas by Marriott International and Vistana Signature Experiences™. Excludes gift card purchases. Not valid for online retail purchases, hotel amenities or purchases of Marriott Bonvoy™ points. Offer only valid on room rate and room charges. Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date. Qualifying purchase means a purchase at a participating Marriott property made during the offer period with your enrolled American Express Card and which is in an amount totaling at least $250 USD as posted to your account, following conversion from a foreign currency, if applicable, in accordance with your Cardmember Agreement. Offer is non-transferable. Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must not be cancelled or past due to receive statement credit. Any benefit earned from this offer is in addition to the rewards (i.e. Membership Rewards or cash back) earned as part of your existing Card benefits, but your ability to earn spend-based rewards for the purchase will be based on the amount after any statement credit or other discount is applied. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 12/31/2020, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: GFLT:0001
This is an excellent deal. Prior to this year, most Marriott offers like these amounted to a 20% rebate if you spent the exact amount required to trigger the offer. This one amounts to a 30% rebate if you spend exactly $250, so that’s obviously much better.
This offer also overlaps with the offer to earn 10X at Marriott properties through 10/31/20. See details here.
While the terms exclude gift cards, I’ve had great luck with similar Amex Offers by buying Marriott gift cards at a hotel’s front desk (make sure not to buy them elsewhere, such as at the hotel gift shop). Not all Marriott hotels sell gift cards, so I recommend calling to ask before making a trip.
