If you have an American Express card, new promotions are constantly being added in either your “Amex offers for you” tab or via Twitter, but while the “Amex offers for you” promotions vary by person, the Twitter promotions are the same for everyone. The only catch is that enrollment is usually limited, so if you see one you like you should Tweet the hashtag or add the offer to your card as soon as you can to get in on the deal before the limit is reached.

Even if you don’t find any Amex offers that interest you ordinarily, during the holidays when you are doing extra shopping you might find a couple that would be good for gifts.


A new Amex Offer is available today, for those Amex cardholders that earn Membership Rewards points.

The offer is for 3,000 Membership Rewards points once you spend $200 at a participating Marriott hotel by February 28, 2017. Since there is no Twitter hashtag for this offer, check your “Amex offers for you” once you sign in. The offer is targeted, so even if you earn Membership Rewards with your Amex you may not have this specific offer available.


For those that do have this offer, under the details it says that you can earn a maximum of 6,000 points so you can utilize the offer twice per card. Note that while most properties in the US are included, stays at the Ritz-Carlton do not count.


Hat tip to Deals We Like, who also has the scoop on an Amex Courtyard by Marriott offer, where if you spend $100 you receive 2,000 Membership Rewards points.

The especially interesting thing is that if you register for both offers and have a single stay at a Courtyard by Marriott that is $200 or more, you will most likely receive the 3,000 Membership Rewards points from the first Marriott offer, plus the 2,000 Membership Rewards points from the Courtyard offer for a total of 5,000 Membership Rewards points in one shot! Then if you have another Marriott stay you’d get another 3,000 from the first offer.

Note that some Courtyard by Marriott properties also offer gift cards.

Today is also Day 7 of the 12 Days of Giveaways.
