A new Amex Offers promotion just came out where you can get a $80 statement credit with a $400+ purchase at a W Hotel. This is a great promotion where you can essentially get up to 20% off your hotel stay! Unfortunately though, this offer is only available through your AmericanExpress.com account (no Twitter hashtag yet), and is targeted. Out of my 5 cards available, only 3 were targeted.
The one caveat to this promotion is that it is only for stays at W Hotels. All other hotel brands under the Starwood umbrella are excluded (i.e., St. Regis, Le Meridien, The Luxury Collection, Westin Hotels & Resorts, Sheraton, Four Points, aloft, element).
My understanding is that W Hotels do not sell gift cards, so unfortunately you cannot spread the transaction across multiple hotel stays. Remember though, it is not simply your hotel rate that needs to be $400 or more, but all extras added to your room bill are included as well. That means if your stay is $250 (including tax) and you put some activities or room service on your bill, as long as the final bill is $400 or more you are good to go.
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.
- Sign into your AmericanExpress.com account and go to the “Amex Offers For You” tab. Find the W Hotels offer and make sure to select the “Save Offer” button (although once you do this for one card the option will disappear on other cards, so make sure to read this post first to learn how to sync multiple Amex cards with your AmericanExpress.com account)
- Spend $400+ at a US or US territory W Hotel with your synced Amex card – your total bill must be at least $250 which can include all room charges, incidentals, tax, etc. The transaction must hit your credit card by December 31, 2015!
I recommend enrolling sooner than later to ensure it does not reach maximum capacity.
