A new Amex Offer just surfaced where you can get a $50 statement credit on a $200+ purchase at a hotel booking site called HotelStorm. This is a great promotion where you can essentially get up to 20% off your hotel stay! And the best thing about this offer is that it is available via Twitter meaning everyone is eligible! Twitter hashtag: #AmexHotelStorm
To register for 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 #AmexHotelStorm
- or, Sign into your AmericanExpress.com account and go to the “Amex Offers For You” tab. Find the HotelStorm 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 you’ll need to set up a Twitter account to save the offer to the rest of your Amex cards or read this post to learn how to sync multiple Amex cards with your AmericanExpress.com account)
- Make a reservation at HotelStorm.com/Amex
- Make sure your the charge hits your credit card by October 12, 2017.
What Is HotelStorm?
I personally have never used this website, but after looking through their site, it looks like another discounted hotel site that will pull in many partner hotels in the location you are looking to stay.
The prices also look to be the same as any other third party site or the lowest available rate when booking directly through that hotel. With that being said, sometimes when booking through the hotel directly, you can receive a discounted rate through AAA, corporate rates, etc. Also, typically when booking through a third party site (like HotelStorm), you will not receive points or stay/night credits for your stay or receive special benefits when booking directly (i.e., free wifi).
While this is a great way to save $50 on your next hotel reservation, just make sure that it is still cheaper than booking through any other site! Anyone have experience booking through this site?
