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!
I stumbled on this after receiving an email from booking using my CSR to take advantage of the travel credit, didn’t realize this was an option, but checked after receiving and it actually is a slightly better deal now compared to the comments y’all left in July, so thought I’d bring it to your attention as a possible repost, but its barely a deal and as always YMMV.
I didn’t check other dates, but I was looking for a last minute hotel for this weekend. Nov 17-19. Normal rate seen was $99/night, rate shown on http://www.spg.com/amexoffer was $109/night, so discounted rate $87/night avg.
It keeps telling me that the promo code is invalid. I am scheduling it for November Thurs-Sun. Anyone else getting this?
lol whats even the point of these “promos”? Do they not think that we actually will compare prices?
There’s a sucker born every minute!
I changed the dates in the example so people stopped focusing on that.
How about Amex SPG Biz card?
What do you mean?
The dates you checked are not in the promo period…
Discount is still applied during those dates, even when I check rates within the promo period it doesn’t show lower than normal rates.
Well the terms do say “Valid for stays between September 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017”
Hopefully stays within that range have a better discount.
They say that but it seems to be applied to bookings outside that range. When I do a booking within that time period, I get this:
$131 with discount (40% off)
$126 with member rate
I guess it’s like the pay your brith year rate promo which also seems inflated.
