Executive Summary

There is a terrific new Amex offer out today – $60 statement credit when you spend $300 or more at any SPG property in the United States.

Details

The details of the offer are straightforward – Spend $300 or more, get $60 back, at any SPG hotel or resort in the United States.  The offer expires 9/4/2018.

The offer applies to all SPG properties in the United States.  SPG brands include:

  • Aloft
  • Element
  • Four Points by Sheraton,
  • Le Méridien
  • The Luxury Collection
  • Sheraton
  • St. Regis
  • Tribute Portfolio
  • W Hotels
  • Westin

The offer states that reservations must be made online at spg.com, via the SPG mobile app, or by calling SPG at 1-877-782-7966.

As with all Amex offers, you must first add the offer to your Amex card and then use the same card to redeem the offer.  The offer can be used only once on each eligible Amex card.

Full terms and conditions are as follows:

Observations and Strategies

Other bloggers have reported that this offer is targeted and that they received it on only some of their Amex cards.  However, we received the offer on all of our Amex cards, except for Hilton co-branded cards.  Our cards include:

  • Amex Business Platinum
  • Amex Business Rewards Gold
  • SPG Business Amex
  • Amex Blue for Business
  • Amex Blue Business Plus (including authorized user (AU) cards)
  • Amex Everyday (including AU cards)

You should be able to pay with multiple cards (split tender) at checkout from an SPG hotel or resort.  For example, if your bill is $1,000, just tell the desk clerk that you’d like to put $300 on one of your Amex cards with the offer, $300 on another, and the remaining $400 on yet another card.  In this example you’d get $60 statement credit times 3, for a total of $180 off, reducing your $1,000 stay down to $820!

If your bill is within $60 of $300, you’ll save money if you purchase something else to bring your total up to $300.  For example, if your bill is $270, go to the hotel gift shop and buy something for $30 to bring the total to $300, then pay with your enrolled Amex card to trigger the credit.  That way you’ll get your $30 item for “free” and pay only $240 total instead of $270.  (The same holds true if your bill would be between $540 and $600, or between $840 and $900, and so forth.)

There is no requirement that the $300 in charges be from a single transaction or a single stay.  Thus, two stays of $150 each should trigger the credit.

As always, be sure to add this Amex offer to each card on which it appears.  If you have multiple Amex cards on the same online account, be sure to use the “Duplicate Tab” trick so that you can add the offer to each card.  If you don’t use the “Duplicate Tab” trick, you’ll only be able to add the offer to the first card on which you activate it.

I have not seen any versions of this deal offering Amex Membership Rewards points rather than statement credit.

We hope you can take advantage of this great offer to get additional value out of your hotel stays this summer!  (Or at least to bring the cost down a bit if you’re staying someplace fancy, like the St. Regis Bal Harbour pictured in our featured image for this article!)
