For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings and bonus offers. In many cases the offers can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.
To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. These offers come in different forms, including discounts and even in some cases bonus points.
A new targeted Amex Offer has been loaded that can save you money on the cost of a Ritz-Carlton stay. Through this Amex Offer, you can save $100 on the cost of a $500+ Ritz-Carlton stay that’s completed by December 11, 2017. Registration is limited, so you’ll want to register sooner rather than later. It’s also not clear based on the terms whether the spend requirement is cumulative or based on one stay, so I’d assume the purchase has to be made over one stay.
The promotion is only valid for stays at Ritz-Carlton properties in the US and US territories. In order to qualify, reservations must be made via ritzcarlton.com, the Ritz-Carlton app, or by calling Ritz-Carlton. The promotion excludes Ritz-Carlton Luxury Vacation Packages, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Ritz-Carlton Residences, Ritz-Carlton Destination Club properties, and timeshare purchases. It also excludes purchases through the Ritz-Carlton Shop, as well as gift purchases.
While the terms suggest you have to book directly through Ritz-Carlton, I’d be willing to bet that an Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts or Virtuoso booking would qualify as well. For all practical purposes these stays are considered “qualifying,” and I think the point of the terms is that a third party booking with a consolidator, etc., wouldn’t qualify. But as long as you pay for your stay at check-out, I can’t imagine it won’t qualify (at least that’s my guess, though do note the terms don’t technically support that, so it’s not a sure bet).
I got targeted for this offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express, while Ford got targeted for the offer on The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN. So combined we could get $200 off a $1,000 stay (at check-out you can ask them to split a purchase across multiple credit cards).
Were you targeted for the Ritz-Carlton Amex Offer, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of it?
