Through December 31, 2015, American Express is offering a $50 credit when you spend $250 or more with Sheraton Hotels. You should receive the credit within 90 days of the promotion end date, though it’ll likely appear sooner. As with many Amex offers, enrollment is limited, so be sure to sign up even if you’re not yet certain you’ll be booking a Sheraton Hotel stay.

As always, there are some important terms to keep in mind. Reservations must be booked at, via the SPG app or by calling 1-800-325-3535. The offer is only valid for stays in the US or US territories, and, naturally, it excludes stays at other Starwood properties. You’re only eligible to receive one credit per person, not per card, and the offer doesn’t apply to corporate credit and charge cards.

I added the offer to my Premier Rewards Gold Card, but it should be available on other non-corporate accounts, including the Platinum Card. Surprisingly, it wasn’t available for my Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card (the natural choice), or for its business equivalent. There’s no downside to adding offers to your account, so if you think you might book a Sheraton stay before the end of the year, sign in to your Amex account and add the offer today.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

While this premium card has one of the highest annual fees on the market, it has several valuable perks that could make it worthwhile, depending on your travel patterns. These include a $200 annual airline rebate, lounge access, free Hilton Gold status and free Starwood Preferred Guest Gold status.
