Amex Offers: Marriott Bonvoy Spend $200 & Get $40 Back [Public Link]

Update: There is a public link you can use: http://americanexpress.com/marriott2019. This means you can add it to the card you want (e.g if you have a Marriott card). Hat tip to reader wwllmm

The Offer

Check your American Express login for the following offer:

  • 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 US properties in the Marriott Bonvoy™ portfolio from 3/25/19 to 6/3/19. Book at marriott.com.

The Fine Print

  • Terms sound like the $200 charge must be met in one shot.
  • 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.
  • 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

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.

Got the offer on my Plat, but not on my Amex Bonvoy card, oh well!

Same here- always wonder if they intentionally target the non-brand matched cards. Anyway, I had a planned trip coming up that I was waiting to book, and this pairs nicely with the 10 miles/$ on several shopping portals today.

Marriott Bonvoy™ No Fee Plan It® Offer Details: 1st qualifying purchase of $750+ directly w/ Marriott Bonvoy towards an eligible stay w/ your enrolled Card will be placed into a 6-month no-fee payment plan.

Ok, I did get the original offer on my Plat card though. Not quite as ideal, figure if I spend exactly $200 I’ll be missing out on ~$8 in bonus points I’d get from instead spending on a better hotel earning card.

Not bad this should work with shopping portal on top right?

Yes, this may work with shopping portals. I had similar Marriott AMEX offers, and I booked stays on Marriott official website via Ebates. I successfully got both AMEX statement credits and Ebates cashback.

William Charles

Yes

Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member. – does that mean I can use it once per AU with SSN? or one per card that has the offer? I would think the first, but just checking. Would like to charge at the hotel for the resort fees upcoming.

Once per SSN

Not on my Bonvoy Biz or Brilliant, of course, but I do have it on EveryDay. I will wait to add it just in case those cards get targeted later.

Do you guy think it would work on buying points?

Definitely not.

never seen the book online requirement before. Is this the same wording as in the past, when we were able to buy gift cards on site?

Bruce

Any idea if the payment must be made in advance online? Or can we make the booking online and then pay at the hotel in person?

Also, any idea if this would still apply if I change the credit card for an existing reservation made on the Marriott website to an eligible AMEX?

Jenny

That’d work, but the dates of the reservation should fall into the stipulated range.

Between wife and I:
1/2 Everyday preferred
0/2 Bonvoy

So my wife didn’t get targeted but I just went into my iOS settings and turned on locations services for Amex app. Went back to offers and selected nearby offers and it was there on the map by a Marriott 👍.

No dice with 6 cards :/

Looks like it’s only for AMEX branded cards, specifically blue cash, and everyday families.

Got on my platinum, but not my wife’s gold. Not on bonvoy cards. May as well add it.

Shows up on my Green and Old Blue Cash, but not Gold or Bonvoy. I guess it’s still worth using one of those cards to get the deal, but it sure would be nice if it was on the Bonvoy card.

Bruce

Depending on how much the room costs, you could split up the charge. Put $200 on the card with the sync deal, the rest on your Bonvoy

Got this on regular Blue Cash. Does anyone know if you can prepay everything and the statement credit will post, because there’s an upcoming stay that’s just outside the window mentioned.

I think this is the first time in two years I’ve NOT been targeted on at least one card. Since the last round I’ve cancelled my Plat and upgraded my SPG to the Brilliant. Have a couple other MR earners too.
