PSA: Even though the fine print says that the purchase has to be over $1000 in USD after foreign currency conversions, there’s another part of the fine print that says the purchase needs to be in USD. Amex is using this to avoid paying out for non-US properties, since the default currency is never USD.

They’re also claiming that the specific Homes and Villas property I booked is excluded, and that the merchant is different from the one offering the credit.

To be clear, I booked on the homes and Villas website by clicking through from the offer link.

If you decide to book for a non-US property, make sure to switch the currency back to USD before purchasing. Better yet, don’t bother with this offer – Homes and Villas doesn’t have a direct number and Marriott basically doesn’t take responsibility if anything goes wrong.

YIKES. Same thing just happened to me after meeting the terms and conditions of offer for a stay in Lisbon. I started a chat and pointed out the “after foreign conversion…” language in the offer to the Amex rep. They initially didn’t budge but put on a manager who acknowledged I had seeming met the terms. He said that he would makes a “case” (?) and send to their marketing team for review. I will be extremely disappointed if Amex does not honor this $200 rebate. I only chose Marriot H&V because of this offer. An airbnb would’ve been better. The room was nice, maybe a little better than what was available for the same price on airbnb BUT there was no owner who left helpful info and was available for questions. There was no coffee or sugar, salt/pepper. No instructions on how to use the washer/dryer. No tissue or paper towels. No property reviews online. And Marriott does not administer the properties. There is a third party, Altido, that manages the properties. Altido was quick to reply by email but usually not helpful.

Update. Amex finally relented but only after my “case” was initially rejected. Here was the chat response:

“I understand that and also reviewed the terms further. Just next to above statement, it was mentioned that – “Offer is non-transferable. Valid only on purchases made in US dollars.”

However, I do understand the confusion as well and issued the $200 credit as an exception.

The credit will post within 48 hours on the account. I hope it helps!”

I got bonvoyed by this same offer. Amex’s response: ‘You should’ve read the terms’ 😅
$125k+ spent with Amex over the past couple of years. I’m cancelling all of my accounts come renewal time

Just a word to the wise to fellow DOC readers, stay far away from Marriott Homes & Villas!

I stayed recently paying only $30 TOTAL for 2 nights (instead of $230 w/ an Amex no min $200 statement credit) and STILL REGRET IT. Here are the reasons why:

1. separate entity than Marriott. lower standards, T&C’s, accountability
2. no phone # at all for customer service
3. if you can’t get in the apartment the only thing you can do is email them and pray for a response
4. if you don’t like something about the place, or anything breaks, you’re out of luck
5. terms & conditions state they are not responsible for your security deposit! (so if the property owner decides not to give it back to you even if you have video evidence you cannot get your deposit back)
6. security deposit is often 1/2 the cost of the property
7. there is no rating/review system as of a few months ago so the platform can continue to rent out terrible properties over and over again that look great in the photos
8. poor cancellation policies
9. if comparing against Airbnb & VRBO options, you pay a 30-50% premium for what you’re getting with no protection like Airbnb Aircover (which is now included in most bookings which i’ve used on several occasions if host cancels or things aren’t as advertised)
10. see reddit for more..

The above list is objective. My experience is as follows: I entered a dirty place, hot water not functioning, next to a nightclub, was overcharged by the platform, spent months emailing various Marriott channels ie Twitter, email, chat etc for my security deposit to no avail, finally resorting to calling my CC issuer to file a dispute. I have no financial interests in any competitors, just trying to pay it forward as readers have done with me!

Does anyone happen to know if the $1000 also include the refundable security deposit?

How are these properties compare to VRBO and Airbnb?

I have one coming up in El Paso Tx and while airbnb had hundreds of properties available, vrbo had dozens and marriott had like 5 lol
The 5 ones available were mid to upper tier

Living next door to any one of these sucks the same.

If you ever need customer support you’ll find out Marriott is not responsible for them whatsoever. Many bad stories on reddit Marriott talking about the lack of CS.

You pay $125/night more for the benefit of earning Bonvoy points – at least that was the price difference between Vacasa and Marriott Homes for a Tahoe stay in November 2022.

I recently did a Vacasa stay in Tahoe over Thanksgiving. The same property was listed in Marriott Homes for about $130/night more. It’s not worth it just to earn Bonvoy points. If you find a property at Marriott Homes just repeat the search on other sites to make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
