New Marriott Amex Offer: Spend $300 & Get $60 Back (Non-Luxury Brands)

A new Marriott Amex Offer came out a couple of days ago that’s offering $60 back when spending $300 or more. This sadly won’t stack with the other Marriott Amex Offer that’s available at the moment as that one is for Marriott’s luxury brands whereas this one specifically excludes those brands.

Quick Thoughts

If you were disappointed by the Marriott Amex Offer for luxury brands because they’re not brands you normally stay at, this offer will hopefully be more to your liking as it includes brands like Marriott, Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites, SpringHill Suites, etc.

In the past it’s been possible to trigger the Amex Offer when meeting the $300 threshold by paying for two or more stays. The terms don’t specifically state that you have to spend the $300 in one transaction, so I suspect you can meet the spend requirement when paying for more than one stay, although I’m not certain about that.

The terms exclude gift card purchases, but if you can find a participating property that knows how to sell you a gift card from the front desk, that should trigger the statement credit too. Good luck finding a property though as I’ve struck out at every Marriott property I’ve ever tried to buy a gift card from.

This offer is listed on the Amex Connect site, so we’ve provided the link above. In theory you should be able to log in and select which of your Amex cards to add it to. I was able to do that and chose one of my Marriott cards so that I’d earn 6x when using the offer, but I got an error message when trying to load it. When not using Amex Connect, the offer only appears on one of my Amex Gold cards, so I might end up having to settle for that.

Would charging hotel restaurant charges to the room qualify as “room charges” and not “hotel amenities”?

I was able to use the Amex connect site, but I had to “remove” my other cards first, keeping my Marriott card, then it worked. Then re-added my cards I removed previously
