Earlier today, we posted about a new Amex Offer for Marriott hotels (See: New Marriott Offer (Possible stack with Lux benefit?)) and another for select Hilton brands (See: Embassy and Home2Suites offer: $50 or 5K back on $250 (stack w/ Double Points through 9/9)). As many readers noticed, these offers can be synced to multiple Amex accounts using the multi-tab method (the Marriott one seems to work for everyone, though I’ve seen some mixed reports on the Embassy Suites offer syncing to multiple cards). At this point, there is no clear indication as to which offers can be synced to multiple cards – the best method appears to be trial and error.
It turns out that the Marriott offer even has a dedicated link. You can sync that offer via this direct link. H/T to reader David for pointing that out. Note that this offer can even by synced to Hilton cards via that link as seen in ths screen shot above.
Stephen Pepper posited a theory that perhaps these offers were set up with Amex before offers ceased to be syncable to multiple cards. His basis for that theory is that the Mariott offer excludes SPG properties, so perhaps this offer was planned before the merger was finalized and therefore potentially far back enough as to not be coded to only be allowed once per SSN like other offers. Another theory is that some offers will be limited going forward and others will not be limited, likely somewhat dependent on the partner and who bears the brunt of the cost for the offer. I think that the introduction of new offers that can be synced multiple times likely indicates that the latter is true and multi-sync Amex Offers aren’t completely dead after all. Perhaps we will see some variety after all in Amex Offers being usable multiple times via the multi-tab method. At the very least, this is good news for those looking to save a bundle on Marriott stays since the savings could certainly add up if used on multiple cards.
