Another new week brings with it more new Amex offers and today, Amex has published two separate offers for stays made at select Marriott properties. One offer is being targeted at consumer American Express cards and the other at business American Express cards so if you’re an Amex card holder, there’s a good chance that you find at least one of these offers in your online account.

Offer 1 – Spend $300 and get $60 back with Marriott Bonvoy (Consumer Cards)

Offer 2 – Spend $250 and get $50 back with Marriott Bonvoy (Business Cards)

Headline Details

Get a one-time $50 statement credit by using your enrolled eligible Business Card to spend a minimum of $250 USD in one or more purchases on room rate and room charges at participating Marriott Bonvoy® properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories, the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico from 11/7/2022 to 12/18/2022.

Key Terms

The key terms for this offer are almost exactly the same as the key terms for the consumer card offer with the only difference being that where the consumer card offer discusses a $300 spending target and a $60 rebate, this offer discusses a $250 spending target and a $50 rebate.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Amex offer (assuming that you have been targeted for it).

Quick thoughts

As Amex Marriott offers go, these aren’t particularly impressive.

Firstly, Amex has restricted the rebates so that only spending in select regions will trigger the savings (admittedly, this isn’t really surprising as this is what Amex does with almost all of its hotel offers).

Secondly, Amex has said that 11 of its brands are not eligible for this offer, and while we’ve become used to seeing Protea Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments, and Marriott Vacation Club excluded from Amex offers, it’s more than a little disappointing to see most of Marriott’s luxury brands excluded too*.

Thirdly, both offers are only valid for stays that are paid for by 18 December 2022 and that means that cardholders have just 6 weeks in which to make the most of these deals. That’s not exactly generous.

Fourthly, if my accounts are anything to go by, it’s possible that Marriott Bonvoy co-branded cards are not being targeted for these offers and if that turns out to be the case, it will mean that to make the most of these offers, a cardholder will have to miss out on earning some Bonvoy points (at least 1,500 – 1,800 points).

Having said all of that, if you have an upcoming Marriott stay at a property that hasn’t been excluded by the terms and conditions, being given the chance to save between $50 and $60 off that stay is definitely better than nothing so for some, these offers will still prove useful.

Also, keep in mind that if you hold a Chase credit card and will be paying for a Marriott stay in the next week, there’s a chance that you have access to another offer that could save you more money (assuming that you can split your final bill between two credit cards) – see here for more details.

*There’s an outside chance that Amex may unveil a further offer (later today or later this week) that’s targeted specifically for stays made at its Luxury brands

Bottom line

American Express has launched two new offers for stays at select Marriott Bonvoy properties in the US, US Territories, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Both offers give cardholders the chance to save up to 20% off their stays but both also exclude most of Marriott’s Luxury brands so they’re considerably more restrictive than most Amex Marriott offers.
