We’re slowly starting to see the return of real discounts on travel amongst a myriad of other Amex offers that cardholders have access to and, following the Marriott Bonvoy offer that appeared a few weeks ago (and which is still live), there are now two further Amex offers for savings at popular hotel chains.

Offer 1 – Save At InterContinental Properties

Headline Details

Get a one-time $60 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $300 on room rate and room charges, after you pay for your stay at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts from 8/3/2020 to 12/31/2020.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.

Thoughts On Offer 1

I’ve chosen to load this card on to my Blue Business Plus card from American Express because it hasn’t been targeted to any of my other cards that offer a bonus for travel or hotel spending (the 2 points/dollar that the Blue Business Plus card offers me is a better return than I’ll get on any other card). If you’ve been targeted then, hopefully, you’ll have this offer targeted to a card like the Amex Green Card which will earn you, amongst other bonuses, 3 points/dollar on travel.

As far as the offer itself goes…it’s not bad. It’s a notable improvement on the Marriott Bonvoy Amex offer in that it’s valid through the end of the year (the Bonvoy offer isn’t even valid through September) but it’s a little disappointing that it’s limited to properties in the US – I could have made good use of this in the UK or in Europe.

Offer 2 – Save At Kimpton Properties

Headline Details

Get a one-time $40 statement credit by using your enrolled Card at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants from 8/3/2020 to 12/31/2020, to spend a minimum of $200+ USD on room rate and room charges.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
  • Offer valid for stays at any Kimpton hotel location in the US.
  • Reservations must be made online at kimptonhotels.com, by using the mobile app or by calling 1-800-KIMPTON (546-7866).
  • Excludes all other IHG hotel brands.
  • Not valid for purchases at restaurants, kimptonstyle.com, or for IHG Rewards Club points purchases.
  • Excludes gift card purchases.
  • Offer only valid on room rate and room charges.

  • Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member.
  • 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.

Thoughts On Offer 2

First and foremost (and as with the InterContinental offer), make sure you load this offer on to a card that will earn you the best return on your spending (if you’re traveling for Business, the Amex Business Gold Card may be a good option).

Essentially this Kimpton offer is just the InterContinental offer reproduced for Kimpton properties – it’s valid for stays through the end of the year but only at US properties. In the case of this offer, the fact that it can only be used at US properties is less problematic because the overwhelming majority of Kimpton properties are within the United States – there are only a handful elsewhere.

It’s worth remembering that as of earlier this month, the InterContinental Ambassador free night benefit can be used at Kimpton properties on any day of the week so if you can pair this offer with that benefit, you could find yourself with a very nice deal on a 2-night stay.

Bottom Line

Amex is currently targeting cardholders for savings at InterContinental and Kimpton properties across the United States. The discounts are valid through to the end of the year so there’s no immediate hurry to get booking, but now may be a good time to start researching prices to see if you can lock in any good deals for travel in a few month’s time.
