SPG: Use AmEx Card To Stay Two Or More Consecutive Nights & Get 40% Off Second Night (Valid On Arrivals Thurs-Saturday)
- Book two or more consecutive nights at any participating SPG property and receive 40% off every 2nd night.
- Must use an American Express card to book
The Fine Print
- Valid for stays between September 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017 when you book and pay with any American Express® Card. Applicable taxes and terms apply
Seems like a good deal on the surface but seems to be only valid on arrivals Thursday through Saturday (e.g if you arrived on a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday you wouldn’t be eligible) making it useless for most business travel. They also give you the seemingly worst rate possible. For example I looked at one hotel for September 14th – 15th and they said the room rate was $164, brought down to $131 with this discount. I then price compared when booking directly and see that I can actually get it for $126 per night.
That’s pretty terrible considering I was looking at an ideal use of this promotion (stay of exactly two nights). It might still be worth checking this to see if it makes sense with your own bookings but as always MAKE SURE YOU PRICE COMPARE!
