A great part of having an American Express card is Amex Offers.

Taking advantage of this exclusive perk is a great way to get some cash back on purchases at select locations (you can view current offers available here).

A new offer recently caught our eye that was worth its own post.

Note: This offer doesn’t appear to be available to all Amex cardholders, so please check your account.

American Express Travel offer

Spend $450 on select purchases at Amex travel, and receive a $100 statement credit

Yes, the offer is that rich.

Simply register your card, and by February 29, 2020, spend at least $450 on either prepaid hotel or car rentals booked through American Express Travel, and you’ll receive a $100 statement credit.

But there’s a limit to the number of cards that can register for this offer – 65,000. So if this offer interests you, act quickly before it’s gone.

One key thing to note – bookings made through either The Hotel Collection or Fine Hotels and Resorts don’t qualify for this offer, the booking has to be made with the regular American Express Travel portal.

For full terms, simply login to your account and check the offer.
