If you hold a credit card or charge card issued by American Express then you have access to one of my favorite benefits – Amex Offers. Amex Offers are a great way of boosting your Membership Rewards balance or saving cold hard cash with selected retailers, hoteliers and airlines and I enjoy using them as a way of offsetting any annual fees I have to pay.
To see what Amex Offers you have been targeted for simply scroll down your Amex account homepage and you should see the “Amex Offers & Benefits” header:
Right now AMEX is offering targeted cardholders two very good deals when they book a stay with Peninsula Hotels by the end of November 2019.
AMEX Peninsula Hotels Offers
There are two offers available – one targeted at cards which earn Membership Rewards…
…and another at American Express cards which earn a multitude of other currencies:
The deals are as follows:
Get a one-time $100 statement credit [or 10,000 additional Membership Rewards points] by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $500 + USD on room rate and room charges, when you pay for your stay at The Peninsula Hotels in the US, Paris and Tokyo by 11/30/2019.
Headline Terms & Conditions
Both offers essentially have the same conditions attached with only the wording relating to the specific bonus on offer differing in the text.
- 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 The Peninsula Hotels properties in the US, Paris and Tokyo.
- Reservations must be made online at peninsula.com or by calling 1-866-382-8388.
- Excludes all other The Peninsula Hotels properties.
- Excludes The Peninsula Academy, fitness memberships, and all other amenities.
- Offer not valid for gift card purchases.
- Qualifying purchase means a purchase at The Peninsula Hotels in the US, Paris and Tokyo made during the offer period with your enrolled American Express Card and which is in an amount of at least $500 USD as posted to your account, following conversion from a foreign currency, if applicable, in accordance with your Cardmember Agreement.
- 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.
- Offer is non-transferable.
- Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member.
Full terms and conditions can be found on the offers themselves (assuming you have been targeted).
I value Membership Rewards points at 1.5 cents each and that means that I value the bonus points at $150. Being in the fortunate position of having been targeted for both offers I would, therefore, choose to load the Membership Rewards points bonus to my card rather than the statement credit.
Note: don’t forget that you can only load one offer to one American Express card so if you have been targeted for both offers make sure you load the offer you like best.
This may not be as good as the amazing offer we saw last week but a $100 – $150 rebate on a $500 booking still means that Amex cardholders can earn rebates of approximately 20% or 25% if they keep their spending to just over $500…and that’s pretty good going.
Even if you’re spending considerably more on a stay than the $500 this promotion requires, this is still a very nice rebate to have…just make sure you make a note of the restrictions before you make a booking as it would be annoying to book a property which then doesn’t trigger the bonus.
