One of the most valuable feature of American Express cards is Amex offers. Used smartly, these offers have the potential to save you at least a few hundred dollars each year, which in many instance would be enough to offset the annual fee on your card.

While the offers are for all sorts of businesses, our focus as avid points and miles collectors is mainly on travel offers. And right now, I am seeing multiple Amex offers that can save card members some serious cash on flights and hotel stays.

One thing to keep in mind is that most Amex Offers are targeted. Not every offer is available on every card and most are capped at a specific number, meaning once the cap is reached the offer disappears and can no longer be added. So it’s a good practice to check these offers every couple of days and save them as soon as possible.

Here are a bunch of offers that card members may find useful, a couple of these are new while the rest have been available for a while.

Save on Stays at Hilton Properties

One of the new offers that popped-up today was for stays at Hilton properties. With this offer, cardmembers can save $100 on spends of $500 or more.

Some of the important T&C’s related to the offer are :

  • You must ensure that AU$500 or more has been charged to your Card by 11/12/2023 to be eligible for the offer. Spend can be in one or more transactions.
  • Offer is valid at participating Hilton propeties in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong.
  • Payments for stays at non-Australian locations are charged in the property‚Äôs local currency and will be converted to Australian Dollars based on the rate of exchange at the time your Card is charged. You must meet the Offer spend requirement of AU$500 after currency conversion to be eligible for the offer.

Save on Thai Airways Flight

If you are planning to fly Thai Airways over the coming weeks or months, this offer can save you up to 20% on your flight.

Some of the important T&C’s related to the offer are :

  • You must spend $1,000 or more, in one or more transactions, online only at Thai Airways Australian website.

Save on Stays at Marriott Properties

Whether you are a Marriott loyalist or just looking for a deal on your upcoming hotel stay, this Amex offer can save you $80 when you spend $400 or more.

Some of the important T&C’s related to the offer are :

  • Offer is valid at participating Marriott Bonvoy Hotels and Resorts in Australia and Singapore.
  • If you spend in a currency other than Australian Dollars, a Currency Conversion Fee applies and this fee does not count towards the offer spend requirement. For more information regarding charges made in foreign currencies refer to your Card Member Agreement. You must meet the Offer spend requirement of $400 Australian Dollars after currency conversion to be eligible for the offer.
  • Spend can be made in one or more transactions.
  • Incidental spend is eligible if charged to your room during your stay and paid at the hotel front desk upon check-out (e.g. spend at hotel restaurants).

Save on Qatar Airways Flight

Qatar Airways have been in the news a lot in recent times. If you are wondering what the fuss is about and plan to find out by booking a flight with them, this Amex Offer can save you up to $350.

The offer has been out for a while and limited to just 4,000 cards, so I suggest you save it sooner rather than later.

Some of the important T&C’s related to the offer are :

  • You must ensure that $2,900 or more has been charged to your Card by 30/09/2023 to be eligible for the offer.

Save on United Airlines Flight

United is on a tear and have expanded their Australia network massively since resuming flights in the aftermath of Covid-19. You can fly United from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to their U.S. West coast hubs of San Francisco and Los Angeles, and onwards to numerous cities in North America.

If you are looking for a cash fare to pay for a trip to United States, this offer can save you up to 20% on United flights.

Some of the important T&C’s related to the offer are :

  • You must ensure that AU$1,000 or more has been charged to your Card by 31/10/2023 to be eligible for the offer.
  • Offer only valid for flights departing from Australia, which are paid for in Australian Dollars.

  • Excludes payments made via third parties (including, but not limited to, travel agents, online aggregators or payment processors).

In Conclusion

Even after writing about them for all these years, it feels like Amex Offers remain one of the most under-appreciated feature of American Express cards.

While it’s nice to earn Membership Rewards Points and redeem them for Business and First Class flights, there’s something to be said about saving cold, hard cash when you are not paying with points.

Personally speaking, I easily save over a thousand dollars each year with Amex Offers. It’s one of the primary reasons I am happy to pay the annual fee on my American Express cards year after year.
