Last June I wrote about American Express’ Link, Like, Love promotion, whereby they were offering cardholders discounts at select retailers through their Facebook page, including at Westin and Sheraton properties.
The promotion is still running, though now with some new retailers.
While there are a lot of great retailers on the list, what caught my eye was a $50 statement credit when spending $250 at InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, or Hotel Indigo properties through March 31, 2012. You can earn the discount once at each brand, and there doesn’t really seem to be much of a catch. The terms for the InterContinental offer are as follows (and they’re more or less the same for Crowne Plaza and Hotel Indigo):
To be eligible to receive a $50 statement credit you must click the ‘add to card’ button and use your synced Card account to make total purchases of $250 or more at an InterContinental Hotel or Resort in the U.S. through March 31, 2012. Only valid on the charges on your room portfolio paid during your stay or at check out. May not include all onsite concessions and does not include pre-payment of any room reservations through a central reservations phone number. Limit one statement credit per Cardmember. Registration is limited. Statement credits are generally issued within 2-3 business days after your qualifying purchase, but may take up to 2 billing periods to post to your account. Program Terms and Conditions apply; click below for details.
So once you register for the “Link, Like, Love” promotion you just have to click “Add to Card” for the offers you want, and the statement credit should automatically post assuming you use your synched American Express card.
It can never hurt to register for these promotions even if you don’t think you’ll take advantage of them. I spent $50 at the Cheesecake Factory a few nights ago, and am kicking myself that I only added the promotion to my card tonight. I figured my mom was smarter than to suggest we’d have a “light dinner at the Cheesecake Factory,” which is probably the world’s biggest oxymoron. Hell, I don’t think they even have a salad with less than 2,000 calories, but now I’m just going off on a tangent…
