A new Amex Offer just appeared this morning where if you spend $200 at a Marriott hotel, you’ll receive 3,000 Membership Reward points. You can actually take advantage of this offer two times per registered card for a total of 6,000 bonus points. This is targeted to just membership reward earning credit cards, i.e., Amex Platinum, Amex EveryDay, Amex Premier Gold Rewards, etc. There is no twitter hashtag available for this offer so you’ll have to sign into your AmericanExpress.com account to see if you are eligible. And, if you have these offers on more then one American Express credit card, you’ll need to use the multiple browser trick to register for the same offer on multiple cards. This offer expires February 28, 2017.
The great thing about this offer is that almost all hotels in the Marriott chain are included in the US and Puerto Rico. This includes: Marriott, AC Hotels by Marriott, Courtyard by Marriott, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites, TownePlace Suites, EDITION Hotels, JW Marriott, Autograph Collection, Renaissance, Delta, Gaylord Hotels, Moxy. It excludes: The Ritz-Carlton, Bulgari, Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott Vacation Club, Protea, and Starwood Hotel and Resorts properties.
Combining with the Courtyard by Marriott Amex Offer!
An interesting thing to note is that there is also another Amex Offer for specifically Marriott Courtyard hotel. This offer is spend $100, receive 2,000 Membership Reward points. My assumption is that staying at a Courtyard hotel will in fact trigger both offers.
This means a $200 transaction should result in 5,000 Membership Reward points! Just make sure you are registered for both offer. And the Marriott Courtyard one expires at the end of the month, so you must stay by December 31, 2016 to maximize your points earned. Additionally, many Marriott Courtyard hotels sell gift cards which will trigger the statement credit. I personally value Amex Membership Reward points at a minimum of 1.7 cents per point. This means 5,000 points equal $85. An $85 return on a $200 gift card or stay is pretty amazing in my book!
