Here’s how it works:

  • Log in to your American Express account and register for the offer. Note: It’s a targeted offer, so you might not see it. If you don’t, tweet using an account linked to your Amex and use #AmexHotelStorm. Wait for confirmation from @AmexOffers that the offer has been added to your account.
  • Log on to HotelStorm.com/Amex.
  • Book between now and March 12, 2017.

That’s it. If you’re not familiar with HotelStorm (we weren’t either), it looks to be a general third-party hotel-booking site. Just punch in your location and get a list of available hotels in your area.

Based on a quick search, HotelStorm’s rates appear to match those available through other travel agencies, as well as Marriott’s site. For example, using the same dates, all three sites showed identical availability and prices.

Here’s the booking through HotelStorm:

Just be aware: Typically, you won’t earn points when booking through a third-party site. So if you’re looking to boost your account balance, it’s still best to book via a hotel’s website — and use a credit card that will earn you bonus points for your purchase.
