If you have a hotel stay coming up over the next few months and happen to hold an American Express card, listen up: You may be able to save some serious cash on your next trip. Many American Express cardholders have reported they’ve been targeted for even more deep discounts at major hotel chains through the Amex Offers program.
That said, it’s important to note that the coronavirus pandemic continues and some states and countries continue to impose travel restrictions. However, many hotel chains offer flexible change and cancellation policies for new reservations — so there’s little risk of booking a stay that falls during the offer periods below. Just be aware of the risk that you may need to cancel the trip as it approaches and double-check the cancelation terms for your booking.
Let’s take a look at the current offers across various Amex cards. Eligibility for these offers is limited. Enrollment is required in the Amex Offers section of your account before redeeming.

There’s a plethora of new Amex Offers across multiple brands under the Hilton Honors umbrella, all of which were found on my own Amex Platinum as well as multiple other Amex cards in the wallets of TPG staffers. Let’s dive in.
DoubleTree by Hilton & Tapestry
You can also save $45 after spending just $225 (or more) at DoubleTree and Tapestry hotels — two mid-tier Hilton brands — through the end of the year. TPG’s Senior Writer Katie Genter found this offer on both her Business Platinum Card® from American Express and her Amex Platinum (as an authorized user).

Any of the above offers can only be added to one card per account holder. You’ll want to check all of your cards first to select the one that offers you the best return on the purchase — or choose one that waives foreign transaction fees for any purchases outside the U.S. and its territories.
Also, these are targeted offers, so you may not see them at all. If you do, I encourage you to add them right away, since these tend to have limited enrollment and may disappear before the expiration date. Also, only 100 Amex Offers will be visible at a time, so if you’re at capacity, add offers to your card to see if any new ones appear.
If you don’t have an American Express card and don’t want to miss out on future offers like these, consider adding The Platinum Card® from American Express to your wallet. The card offers a welcome bonus of 75,000 Membership Rewards Points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in your first six months of card membership. You might even be eligible for a targeted 125,000-point bonus offer using the CardMatch tool (offer subject to change at any time). This offer even comes with 10x of U.S. supermarket spending (and at U.S. gas stations) on up to the first $15,000 in combined eligible spend in the first six months.
You’ll also receive 5x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with airlines or American Express Travel (earn 5x points on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year) and 5x points on prepaid hotels booked on American Express Travel. As a Platinum cardholder, you’ll also receive complimentary Gold status with Marriott Bonvoy and Hilton Honors, so your stays could be even more rewarding (enrollment required). The card has a $550 annual fee (see rates and fees).
If the Platinum Card isn’t for you, read our guide on choosing the best American Express card that suits your style.
