20% off Hotel Stays & eBay Gift Card Discounts


amex offer hotels 20 off

While I know a lot of you are probably sad to be going back to work, hopefully your holiday season involved lots of joy and fun. (And possibly travel.) I noticed a couple of deals this morning that I think are worth sharing, so here we go!

Up to 20% Off Hotel Stays


Mondays are normally when American Express releases new offers for their cards and I found an interesting one when I logged into my account. This targeted offer gives a $50 statement credit on hotel stays of $250 or more. I found it on about half of my cards.

If you have it then digging into the terms indicates that it should work for any $250 charge at a hotel. There are some exclusions, but pretty much all hotel chains SHOULD work. I do believe that gift cards would probably work as well, so this could be a nice way to lock in a 20% savings at your favorite chain.

The Offer: Get a one-time $50 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $250 or more on all room charges, including room rate, when you pay for your reservation directly with an eligible merchant by 3/31/2016. See terms for exclusions.”

Terms: “Enrollment limited. Offer is non-transferable. Reservations made and paid for with any eligible US American Express® Card accepting domestic and/or non-US merchants between 1/4/16 and 3/31/16 are valid for the offer. Only purchases made directly with eligible merchants are eligible for the offer. Eligible merchants are hotels, motels, and bed & breakfasts that accept the American Express Card. Timeshares, banquets, events, and vacation packages are not “eligible merchants”. Reservations made or paid for with online accommodation services for short term or long term rentals for a room, apartment, home, or property are not valid for this offer. Qualifying purchases at eligible merchants must total at least $250 and be made during the offer period above. Qualifying purchases are charges made directly to your room. ”

  1. I wonder if the $250 has to be spent in one stay at one hotel or can it be spent at multiple hotels as long as a total of $250 is spent.
