The Fine Print
- Valid only for hotel bookings
Works out to be a 25% discount. Doesn’t look like it’s possible to stack with any shopping portals and the site doesn’t offer any referral program or any other way to stack this deal either. What’s odd is that going to tripfuel takes you directly to the tripfuel.com/amexoffer website. When doing a search on the site, it shows a price and says ‘average per night’, that’s actually the total cost not the average per night.
I did one search and a hotel was pricing at $599 instead of $483 when comparing with other sites. American Express seemed to do something similar with HotelStorm offers as well, offer something like $50 cash back on $200+ spend and then the hotels are all over priced. Even if this site did price competitively you’re better off stacking discounts with Hotels.com to get 30%+ off. Keep in mind with third party online hotel bookings like this you don’t get elite night stay credits, hotel points or your status recognized in most cases when booking chain hotels.
In my opinion American Express needs to clamp down on this type of offer if the hotel booking website is pricing significantly higher than other sites on a frequent basis. If you do your own price comparisons, please share your results in the comments below. For now I’m giving this offer zero stars out of ten.
