New [Targeted] Amex Offer: $50 Back On Your Next Hotel Stay Of $250+

Amex Offer
Written by Charlie

Another new Amex Offer is here – it will get you $50 back on a hotel stay of $250 or more. The bad part is that it is targeted so check to see which cards might have it!

The new year is here and with that came a bunch of Amex Offers that expired at the end of 2015. While many of them were really good offers, it is always nice to see Amex Offers end in bunches as that normally means we will see more Amex Offers coming out shortly after that. Combine that with the fact that the big holiday shopping season is now past and we have the first of what should be some pretty good offers over the next few weeks!

Getting the Offer

Log in to your American Express account and scroll down to the bottom. You will see Amex Offers & Benefits. Select it and add the offer to your card. Make sure you make note of which card you save it to.

To maximize itadd the offer to separate cards, simply login to your American Express account and then choose to duplicate the tab (if using Google Chrome) as many times as you have cards. Once they are all open, select a different Amex card in each tab and select to save the offer to the card.

Make sure you save these offers as soon as you can – using the tip above to maximize – as they are limited enrollment and when they are gone, they are gone! Even if they disappear, as long as you have saved the offer, you are all set.


Of all the American Express cards I have access to, the only ones this popped up on were the non co-branded cards. Check out your Blue cards, Premier Rewards Gold, Business Gold, & Platinum cards for it.


  • Spend $250, get $50 back
  • Expires 3/31/2016
  • Valid on all room charges, including room rate, when you pay for your reservation directly with an eligible merchant
  • Eligible merchants are hotels, motels, and bed & breakfasts that accept the American Express Card
  • 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 are charges made directly to your room

While we like to get rooms on points, there are many times that paid stays are inevitable. Previous Amex offers have been for high spending at hotels ($600) or targeted towards specific chains. This will work at any hotel and at a more manageable $250 spending. If you spend right at $250, you will be receiving 20% off of your room. This could be great for any stays you have and is perfect if you are working on elite status with various hotels.

Which Amex cards did you get this offer on? Was the offer the $250/$50 or did you get a differing offer?
