Amex Offers: Marriott Bonvoy Spend $200 & Get $40 Back

The Offer

Check your Amex Offers for the following deal:

  • Get a one-time $40 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $200+ on room rate and room charges at participating properties in the Marriott Bonvoy™ portfolio from 6/13/19 to 9/3/19.

The Fine Print

  • Offer valid only at participating Marriott Bonvoy™ properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories.
  • Reservations must be made online at Marriott.com, via the Marriott Bonvoy™ App or by calling 1-888-236-2427. Excludes Marriott Vacation Club®, Design Hotels™, Protea Hotels®, and Marriott Executive Apartments®.
  • Excludes gift card purchases.
  • Not valid for online retail purchases or purchases of Marriott Bonvoy™ points.
  • Offer only valid on room rate and room charges.
  • Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date.

Our Verdict

We had the same offer from Marriott which just ended, now there’s another roll out. I think this one is showing on all cards, so choose which card you want to use it on (e.g. if you have the Marriott Amex, you might want to save it on that card).

You can also save this on third-party Amex cards via the Amex Connect site (direct link). That should enable you to get this offer more than once if you have any third party cards, like the Wells Fargo Amex.

Pretty nice offer here, just remember third-party bookings won’t work for this since the charge has to go through Marriott. In the past, gift cards purchased at the Marriott desk also triggered the Amex Offer, despite the terms excluding it. Not all Marriott’s have gift cards or know how to process them, so keep that in mind; they often have to call the manager or a senior CSR to figure out what to do.

How will this work if I currently have the Bonvoy Brilliant $300 unused credit?

It should stack, that is what happened for me last time.

“It will stack” so if I spend $200 I will get $240 back?

Alyssa
Alyssa

Yup, I spent $300 to use my entire credit and got $340 back total. The offers will credit separately.

Just added. Room rate for upcoming stay is only $160 bucks and it’s a Fairfield that just has a small convenience kiosk. Would charging snacks from there to the room to get to $200 work to meet the requirement?

Also the offer specifically excluded gift card purchases, but should probably work in practice.

It works if the gift card is purchased at a Marriott property – not all properties sell gift card so you have to call around the properties in your area to find out which one, if there is any, would sell gift card. On last round I bought one from a Renaissance a few miles from home, it is a Renaissance brand gift card but good to use in all Marriott brands except those specifically excluded. The billing is from the hotel itself (manager has to be called to handle the transaction)

The charge together with the credit posted on the same day after spend a couple days in pending stage.

As you can see, the key is the charge must be from a hotel.

Can’t remember how the last one worked, think this is a one time $200 charge or cumulative?

Michael

Guessing it’s one time. Normally when it’s multiple purchases there is some language saying so. This one says a “minimum” $200.

Thanks for posting this. Saves me $40

I don’t see it on any of my cards or on Amex Connect. Sadface.

::edit:: Direct link provided above shows the offer, but entering a card gives the not-targeted message: “Based on the Card Number you’ve entered, you can enroll in this offer and other personalized offers by logging into your American Express Account.” Looks like maybe they somehow hide it on amex conect if you’re not targeted now?

Has anyone tried internationally? I know the offer says only US and US territories.

You already know the answer that the offer is only good in US and US territories, Dont you think the system can identify WHERE the charge is being billed? Seriously?

I got $40 credit from Amex offer also

Just stayed at Sheraton for two days:

Skip housekeeping and get $5 food/store/snacks credit.

Also, play the game at check in, pick one of four cards for a treat: I got a free movie. I saw a French movie with English subtitles free from On Demand Pay Per View.

Staying at a Moxy for four night – which will officially put me at Titanium status after it processes. Fingers crossed the $40 off $200 offer on my AMEX Marriott Biz card will apply.
