A few days ago American Express came out with a great offer where you can get a $50 statement credit with a $200+ purchase at a Marriott hotel. This ultimately means you can get up to 20% off your hotel stay! And the best part is the offer is available via Twitter which means you can take advantage of this promotion on every single American Express credit card you have.
This promotion is valid for transactions between November 6 and December 31, 2014. That means the charge must hit your credit card between these dates to trigger the statement credit. This also means that your total bill must be at least $200, which includes tax and any other incidentals you put on your room bill. This is also only available for Marriott hotels (not other hotels under their umbrella) in the US and Puerto Rico. You also much pay Marriott directly. Staying at a Marriott hotel, but paying a third-part system will not qualify you for the offer (i.e. Jetsetter, TravelPony, Hotels.com if you pay Hotels.com directly and not the hotel, etc.).
To enroll in this offer:
- Sync your American Express credit card to Twitter (you can do that here). If you are not sure which card is currently synced with your account, you can unsync and then re-sync.
- Tweet #AmexMarriott
- Enrollment is limited so I suggest syncing and tweeting NOW!
Earlier this year there was a similar offer with Courtyard hotels and I was able to purchase a gift card and it triggered the statement credit. This meant walking into a Courtyard and purchasing a gift card directly. That means you might be able to do the same with a Marriott hotel – walk into the hotel and see if you can purchase a $200 gift card. The benefit is that you can then use the gift card to pay for a stay post December 31, 2014, and can then use multiple gift cards on a stay if you have an expensive stay coming up. Has anyone had any success purchasing gift cards at a Marriott hotel and it triggering the statement credit?
