While scouring Facebooks “Link, Like, Love” page yesterday, I noticed a new syncing promotion that is travel related. This time you will get $50 statement credit with a single $250 purchase at Travelocity on your American Express credit card. This offer is valid for purchases made by 8/31, but for hotel travel up to 10/31. The terms of this promotion specify hotels only and not flights, however, I really wonder how they will actually monitor the hotel dates and the travel type. Typically with these Amex promotions, all Amex sees is the purchase amount and that is that. As long as the merchant is coded properly, the statement credit it is. Maybe they have enhanced the technology or the merchant name is different if it is a hotel vs. an airline? While I am not positive how this will work, I’d be interested to see if anyone gets the $50 statement credit by purchasing a flight or a hotel after the 10/31 date. If so, let me know!
Additionally, another blogger, New Girl in the Air, was able to find this promotion via Twitter, so if you prefer you are able to Tweet #AmexTravelocity to register this promotion on the credit card synced with your Twitter account. Unfortunately you will not get 2 $50 statement credits as the promotions do not stack, however, if you are looking to take advantage of this twice, you can have one Amex card set up to your Twitter account and another Amex card set up to your Facebook account. This will allow you to get the $50 back statement credit twice assuming two different $250+ purchases.
With this promotion, you are limited to 1 statement credit per card. As I mentioned yesterday in my other “Free Money with American Express find,” you will need to first sync your American Express card to the Facebook application, and then add this promotion to your card.
