[Targeted] AmEx Offer: $50 off $150 at AirBnB! (excludes gift cards)

The Offer

Check your Amex logins for the following targeted offer:

  • Get $50 back on $150+ AirBnB purchase

The Fine Print

  • Valid for bookings paid for by September 8, 2017
  • Must book $150 or more in a single booking
  • Must book directly with Airbnb online or via mobile app
  • Offer only valid for domestic and international Airbnb bookings paid using your enrolled American Express Card after enrollment and prior to 9/8/2017
  • Excludes Airbnb Meetups and gift card purchases
  • Offer not valid for bookings that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date

Our Verdict

This isn’t the $50 off $100 bonanza from a year and a half ago which worked on gift cards and was an extra 17% off, but it’s still an excellent offer! I only found it on one Amex card so far (Biz Plat AU), hopefully you’ll have a bit more luck. You can book out into the future, just make sure to create the booking by September 8th.

    I took advantage of this……..will probably end up booking closer to the end of the promo period in September but a great deal if you get it and use it.

  2. AH says:

    0/6 on SPG, DL Gold, Blue for Biz, BGR, PRG, and BCP

  3. Orion says:

    0/25 for me… must be very targeted.

  4. Dee says:

    0/4 – SPG Personal, PRG, BCE and Gold Delta Business


  5. 007 says:

    4/4 on BCP&BCE (AU&I). Now if only I used airbnb… (Maybe that is why I was targeted 😉 )

  6. Lantean says:

    i got 4/4… must be compensation for not getting any amazon

  7. Nick says:

    I saw this on my only account with them (personal plat), although I didn’t get would have been much more useful Adorama and Amazon ones =(

    Guess I need more AUs;)

  8. Andrey says:

    5/5 (BCE, DL Gold, PRG, PRG AU, ED)
    May be just a slow roll-out

  9. Peter says:

    1/1 got it on BCE.

    Don’t use Air BnB though.

  10. VH says:

    I got an offer from Marriott spend 200 and get 40.

  11. Arley says:

    2/2 – BCP and BGR

    I have never used AirBNB. Can I combine 1 booking by using both cards to get $100 off of $300 for 1 booking?

    • Chuck says:

      I doubt that’s possible. You might be able to make a single booking into two, e.g. if you are going somewhere for 4 night, work out to make it as two separate two-night bookings.

  12. Bob Miller says:

    Does anyone know how fast the credit will post? My AF for the Amex Plat just posted and I was going to close the card. I also just booked an Airbnb on my CSR the other day, thinking about cancelling the booking and then re-booking with the Amex to get the $50 back.

  13. Debt Hater says:

    I have this offer on my BCE. Only problem is I that I just made a bunch of AirBNB reservations a little while ago, using a different card to meet a minimum spend. Gotta check the cancellation policies to see if there are any possible places to re-book…

  14. PG says:

    0/25 or so, as far as I can tell. Anyone else experiencing the new Amex website as a glitchy piece of dog doo?

    • iahphx says:

      My family wasn’t targeted for airbnb on a couple dozen cards; we are occasional airbnb users.

      And, I assume, you’re not going to see an airbnb offer on a credit card sponsored by a hotel company,

      What is the deal with those changes to the AMEX website? When I saw them a couple days ago, I thought it was a formatting error. Why would they do this?

  15. Emily says:

    0/3 for me. 🙁 SPG, PRG, Everyday

  16. Kimillionaire says:

    0/3 for husband and 3/3 for me.

    Anyone know how to add the same deal to multiple cards with the new AmEx website? It’s preventing me from opening different accounts in different tabs. And I’m pretty sure it’s showing the same offers for each account.

  17. Dan says:

    Wonder if they actually enforce the terms.

    • Dima says:

      Last time they ran the promo (end of 2015) they actually allowed GC purchase, but they didn’t configure something correctly on their side and because apparently GCs were coded differently from regular bookings the credits weren’t posting. Was rather annoying to have to ask AMEX to manually process the credit, esp. on the co-branded cards where you had to contact them via twitter.

  18. boridi says:

    got it on BCP, BCE, and ED. Anyone else dislike the new Amex website?

  19. Trevor says:

    I assume this stacks with the Acorns app’s found money — they currently have an offer of (up to) 1.8% of your Airbnb booking invested into your account, until September 14th.

    To get the deal, you have to go into the app, tap “Book Now”, and book within 28 days.

  20. DH7 says:

    0/8, must be revenge for my Amazon spend…

  21. az says:

    Got two offers for PRG (M+A) cards. Interesting, I saw the offer from online banking but I didn’t add it. Later on the road I checked my mobile banking, it’s gone! I was so sad that I lost it. But When I returned home and opened the online banking again, it’s still there. Immediately added both.

  22. MontyFC says:

    Received this offer on 3/7 BCP cards and 2/4 old Clear card. Not available on any SPG or PRG cards.

    Other interesting offers that popped up
    – $40 off $200 at JW Marriott (someone else mentioned above)
    – $40 off $200 at 1800-CONTACTS
    – $100 off $500 at Hilton properties ONLY in UK

    I have no plans to travel to UK but have family there. Will check w/ them if they would be interested.

    • Klad says:

      Got the same offers on my BCP but to my surprise I don’t see them on mobile app, visited website and added from there. I can see them in My Offers on mobile app now.

  23. Winnie says:

    Got the AirBnb offer on both my OBC and my Amex Everyday Preferred cards.
