Our Verdict

Promotion is annoying because the fourth night is credited upon check out, rather than during the booking process. I prefer to know the promotion is working correctly before booking. A few things to note, six Destination Hotels are also part of the Fine Hotels & Resorts program but you can’t stack this deal with those benefits as you need to book through the offer. It also seems like some properties have better offers, e.g Scottsdale is offering third night free plus some additional benefits. I did a few very quick searches and it doesn’t look like they are charging extra when using this promo code/unique URL but if you’re going to do the deal yourself I’d strongly recommend doing more thorough price comparisons. If anybody decides to book anything, share what you booked in the comments below. Seems like an interesting promotion given that Citi has announced negative changes to the 4th night free benefit they offer on the Prestige.

Not sure this is as good as some other offers but id love to see AmEx expand this after Citi surrendered it. I also want 5x Entertainment on the AmEx Plat to fill that void (and i think it makes sense)

Add entertainment and foreign transaction multipliers. The Australian Plat has 2X on foreign currency transactions. Step it up Amex.


Yes, but the Australian Plat does that to offset the foreign currency fee which is still 3%.


I really hate these and the amextravel deals. Why would I want to give up all my hotel points earning and elite progress to earn 1 or 2x MR? Hotels are the one area where Chase has a huge edge – 2 or 3x travel and you can earn it booking direct. These types of promos would be great on any other card besides an amex. You earn no bonus points for using your Amex card! For non – chain hotels like these you’re probably just better off booking through or some other discount site.
