New Amex Offer: $60 Off A $200+ Hyatt Regency Stay (Targeted)

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.

There’s a new targeted Amex Offer for Hyatt Regency, valid for purchases through May 27, 2018. With this offer you can get $60 off $200+ worth of spend at a Hyatt Regency, which is the equivalent of 30% off.

As is usually the case with Amex Offers, this one is targeted. This one also seems to be more tightly targeted than some of the other Amex Offers we see. I only have the offer on one of my cards, while Ford doesn’t have it on any of his. I guess that’s not too surprising, given that Amex and Hyatt don’t have any sort of a co-brand partnership. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an Amex Offer for Hyatt though, as they also had one in late 2016.

For those who are eligible, this offer is valid at Hyatt Regency hotels in the US and US territories. Reservations must be made directly with Hyatt to be eligible, and the promotion isn’t valid at Hyatt brands other than Hyatt Regency.

Eligible members can only earn this statement credit once. Furthermore, eligibility is determined based on when the cost of your stay is charged to your card. In theory this means that a pre-paid stay booked for a stay after the promotion period would qualify, as long as the hotel actually charges you during the promotion period (sometimes hotels don’t actually charge pre-paid rates in advance, for whatever reason). If you’re redeeming points for a stay at a Hyatt Regency you should still be eligible for this, as long as you charge at least $200 from your folio to a registered Amex card.

While this promotion is more narrowly targeted than some of the past ones, I figure it’s still worth writing about, given that it’s travel related, and I know a lot of people in our community would take advantage of it if eligible.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for the tip! Mind sharing which card? I usually get skunked after looking through my many cards, would love to figure out the pattern.

  2. @ Beachfan — I see it on the Amex EveryDay. I’d expect to see it on a Membership Rewards card, and not a competing co-brand card (like Delta, Hilton, SPG, etc.).

  3. Rats. Shut out. But I did notice an offer for $5 back on a $25 Chuck E. Cheese purchase on either my personal Plat or my Blue Biz Plus cards. Woohoo! ;(

  4. Didn’t get this either, but did get a bunch of 2x offers on otherwise non-bonused spend (Best Buy & Macy’s to name a few).

  5. @lucky – The offer says “Get a 1x $60 statement credit….” – Does this mean that the cardholder will be credited $60 once PER OFFER or once PER STAY?

    So if I have 3x stays at a Hyatt Regency booked for April, will I get the $60 credit ONCE or three times (or as often as I stay at a HR)?

  6. The terms say “Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date.” If I prepay for a stay planned in June will I still get the credit even though the travel is after the end of the promotion period?

  7. This is why I got rid of my US based Amex Platinum. They really are ‘American’ Express and nothing else. None of their promos ever work abroad. So for a US credit card holder living or traveling abroad frequently, Amex really is useless. From the lower network of sales outlets that accept the card to the sheer lack of promos (Uber credit US only, US Airlines credit only, promotional credits for stays in the US only etc etc)
