One of the best options for saving money and even earning some bonus points on a wide variety of purchases is by taking advantage of offers on American Express credit cards.

It’s time to check your Amex Offers across your different cards to save on your next Marriott Bonvoy stay. Across both personal and business cards, there are some intriguing offers available that you can use to save on 2023 travel.

Alternatively, you may be targeted for a solid number of bonus points for spending across all purchases.

Let’s take a closer look at these offers and their terms.

Current Marriott Amex Offers

SUMMER HULL/THE POINTS GUY

Currently, there are three variations of Amex Offers for either Marriott stays or for bonus Marriott points on spending.

The first offer gives you a one-time, $60 statement credit when you spend a minimum of $300 on one or more purchases on room rate and room charges at participating Marriott properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories, the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico between Jan. 10 and March 31. Multiple TPG staffers found this offer on The Platinum Card® from American Express.

The second offer gives you 20% back on purchases, up to a total of $50 — and it appears to be exclusively on Amex business cards. You'll get 20% back as a statement credit by using your enrolled eligible business card to make purchases on room rate and room charges at participating Marriott properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean from Jan. 10 to March 31.

TPG staffers have seen this offer on both their Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card and The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, so check all of your Amex business cards for this offer.

Note that both of these offers exclude Marriott Vacation Club, Marriott Grand Residence Club, Design Hotels, Protea Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments, Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy, Vistana Signature Network and Vistana Residence Network. The offers also exclude gift card purchases.

However, the third offer isn't specific to Marriott purchases. Instead, you can earn a one-time bonus of 7,500 Marriott Bonvoy points when you spend $2,000 or more on your enrolled eligible Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card by March 31.

AMERICANEXPRESS.COM

Since you earn at least 2 Marriott points for every dollar you spend on the Bonvoy Business Amex, that means you'd take home a total of 11,500 Marriott points (worth $96.60 based on TPG's valuations) by hitting exactly $2,000 in spending on the card. That's the equivalent of earning 5.75 points per dollar.

It’s worth perusing the offers page of your different American Express cards to see if you’re eligible for these targeted offers — though remember that the offer is triggered by a charge to your credit card, not the actual dates of your stay. So if you check in on March 31, but your card isn’t charged until you check out, you would not qualify for these offers, as they expire on March 31.

Additionally, American Express generally only allows you to earn these offers on one American Express card per account holder (including authorized users). While you may be able to add an offer to multiple American Express cards in some cases, you’re likely to find that American Express will reverse the statement credit if you redeem the offer more than once.

That said, it appears that the $60 offer and the 20% discount are considered separate offers, as multiple TPG staffers were able to add them to a single Amex account.

Bottom line

New Marriott Amex Offers may allow you to enjoy up to $60 off eligible purchases at Marriott properties through the end of March — and for some business card members, you could take home 7,500 bonus points for spending across all merchants.

As always, it’s worth your while to add this offer to your card even if you don’t have any immediate plans to stay at a Marriott Bonvoy hotel. By already having the offer linked to your card, you won’t need to remember to add the offer before checking in at a later date.

American Express will only show you 100 offers at a time. By adding a few offers to your account, you may find something even better hiding in plain sight.
