UPDATE: The Las Vegas offer do not stack so this post has been edited to reflect this fact

American Express has targeted a selection of its cardholders for a rebate which can be used at most Marriott brands in the US (and US territories) and there are two further Amex offers which, together, add up to offer users 16,000 Membership Rewards Points for bookings in Las Vegas.

Marriott Bonvoy Amex Offer

Amex has published a new targeted offer for stays at Marriott properties in the US and US territories and, although it’s unlikely to get pulses racing, the $40 statement credit should still be useful to quite a lot of readers.

Here are the more important conditions attached to the offer (the full conditions can be found within the offer on your targeted American Express card):

  • 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.
  • Reservations must be made online at Marriott.com, via the Marriott Bonvoy™ App or by calling 1-888-236-2427.
  • Offer valid only at participating Marriott Bonvoy™ properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories.
  • Excludes Marriott Vacation Club®, Design Hotels™, Protea Hotels®, and Marriott Executive Apartments®
  • Excludes gift card purchases.
  • Not valid for online retail purchases 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.
  • 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.

There are four key things to note here:

  1. You should save this offer to the Amex credit card of your choice asap as enrolment for this offer is limited – that means it can get pulled at any moment.
  2. Be aware of the brands that are not participating in this offer – Marriott Vacation Club has been publishing some good deals recently but booking a Vacation Club property will not trigger the statement credit.
  3. Advanced booking rates do not appear to be excluded from this offer so the cheapest rates on offer should trigger the statement credit.
  4. Make sure you don’t use the likes of Apple Pay or PayPal to pay for your Marriott transaction as they will code as third-party transactions and will not trigger the statement credit.

Earn 16,000 Membership Rewards Points In Las Vegas

American Express has published two offers for MGM Resorts but, because the terms and conditions stipulate which hotels will trigger the offers (and because the hotels don’t overlap), these offers cannot be stacked.

The first offer is for MGM resorts in “Select Destinations” which covers the following properties:

  • New York-New York®
  • Luxor®,
  • Excalibur®
  • Beau Rivage®
  • Gold Strike®
  • Borgata®
  • MGM National Harbor®
  • MGM Springfield® in the US.

The second offer (specific to Las Vegas properties only) covers the following MGM hotels/resorts:

  • Bellagio®
  • ARIA®
  • Vdara®
  • MGM Grand® Las Vegas
  • The Signature at MGM Grand®
  • Mandalay Bay®
  • Delano® Las Vegas
  • Park MGM®
  • NoMad® Las Vegas
  • The Mirage®

I value Membership Rewards points at a conservative 1.5 cents each so, if you can make the most of both Amex offers (possibly even in a single trip), those 16,000 Membership Rewards Points would be equivalent to a rebate of $240.

If you value Membership Rewards at a higher rate than I do the rebate will be greater.

Make sure you read the terms and conditions of the offers very carefully (something I should have done before thinking that both offer may stack).

  1. Click on the conditions for the 10000 one and you will see why they don’t stack. Hint: it’s not the same hotels!

  2. I don’t know that you can double dip on the MGM offers. My MGM-Las Vegas offer lists specific Las Vegas hotels and NY-NY, Luxor and Excalibur (listed under the select locations offer) are not among the hotels that would trigger the Las Vegas offer.

    • You’re 100% correct – I’ve just displayed an incredible inability to read a simple set of terms and conditions 🙂 The post has now been updated to reflect the fact the offers will not stack….although 16,000 MR points for $800 of spending still isn’t bad.
