Previously best offers have been 125,000 + $100 or 150,000. I’d say this new bonus is better than those offers, although I do personally find that trying to redeem single night certificates can be difficult. Although this one shouldn’t be too bad as it isn’t that restrictive and should work nicely for a romantic weekend (1 night) away. Same bonus also available on the business card, that would mean you could do two nights in a row. As always if you have any questions, read this post about American Express cards first. I will be adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.
Also in general American Express doesn’t match sign up bonuses, but you can sometimes get courtesy points. I very much doubt they will offer a courtesy free night certificate if you recently applied, but asking never hurts.
