Amex Offer: Get Hotel Stay Vouchers worth upto Rs.30,000

By | February 22, 2019

We’ve seen quite a lot of Amex offers since Jan 2019 and now there are some AMAZING Spend based offers too getting rolled out in batches. As always it is a personalised offer based on one’s spend pattern.

This time though it looks like there are lot many variants in this promo. Here’s a quick look into some of the targeted offers that the other readers have received.

Amex Spend Based Offer – Feb 2019
  • Offer 1: Rs.30,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 6L spend
  • Offer 2: Rs.20,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 4L spend
  • Offer 3: Rs.10,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 2L spend
  • Offer 4: Rs.5,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 1L spend
  • Offer 5: Rs.2,500 Flipkart Voucher on 50k spend

Looking into the offer info, looks like the offers are made to let you save ~5% on the spend, and this is over & above your current earn rate on the card.

Now this one of the many reasons to hold American Express Credit Cards. Just incase if you’re still not into Amex ecosystem, its wise to grab Amex Platinum Travel card for FREE (a limited period offer) before the offer ends.

Thanks to Vinay for sharing the offer info.

Bottomline

That all said, I haven’t received the offer on any of my Amex cards yet. Looking at the usage I’ve with Amex, I assume I’ll get a nice offer like it happened with Amex Diwali 2018 Promo. Well, i maybe dreaming too 😀

Update: If you haven’t received the email, Customer Care can now check if the card is eligible for the offer. I was said that I’ve Offer #2 enabled on Gold Charge Card.

I also called up Amex Customer Care to check on this and i was said that everyone is going to get one on/before Sunday.

That aside, this is an AMAZING opportunity to save on your spends. I’m super excited as to what American Express has for the rest of 2019.

While I’m hoping to see a good offer triggered to my card, which offer have you received in meantime? Do let us know in the comments below.

    Well, I haven’t got the offers either, and based on my analysis of the T&Cs, you will see that these are valid on credit cards only. So what Amex wants you to do is spend relatively large amounts in a short span (just to hit the offer), and then convert that to EMI. They make money that way, and they will plan to give a part of that back to you as vouchers. This fact is further underlined, with the conspicuous absence of these offers on the charge cards, where they expect you to pay back in full, and thus no avenue for interest accrual by Amex.

    That said, I have also observed that folks who have successfully enrolled in the past, spent the required amount, and then paid back in full may not have been targetted for this round.

      Well, not really. I got a similar offer on Gold Charge Card last time.

      Btw, the problem with Plat Charge card is that most of those aspiring centurion cardholders doesn’t seem to like “spend this get this” type of offers due to which Plat Charge may get excluded in some promos.

      I like the way you think but unfortunately its not true. I hold the Gold charge card and fulfiled the Diwali Tanishq 4.75L spend offer (vouchers due end of month) and have been offered Offer #2 here (20K on 4L) spends. I believe Amex is banking on heavy collections plus the vouchers they will disburse are from a cleartrip white-labelled site 5 months down the line so there is some scope for them to get what they give back. Just speculating

    Why no good offers on Payback Card?? And they don’t have a option for Upgrade or Pre-approved.

      You can spend then pay and then repeat. But Advance credit to card (thinking to increase limit beyond 25k) is not something Amex likes.

    I got the Offer 3: Rs.10,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 2L spend. I feel the limit to spend is on the higher side. I wish to do the spending but also am vary about my capacity to pay back without converting to EMI. Mostly won’t achieve the target spends.

    Hi Sid, Others, I hold Amex MRCC.

    Today received one promo email from Amex regarding Flipkart 2500 voucher; details as below:
    Spend a total of ₹50,000 or more on your American Express® Card, including spends on your Supplementary Card(s) and Get Flipkart voucher worth ₹2,500. OFFER VALID FROM FEBRUARY 25, 2019 TO APRIL 15, 2019.

    Further few days back also got promo email regarding upto 5000 Membership Rewards Points on your insurance spends!
    Get 10 Membership Rewards® Points up to a maximum of 5,000 Points for every Rs. 100 spent with all the insurance companies during the offer period with select American Express® Cards. OFFER VALID TILL MARCH 31, 2019.

    My question is that will both these offers be applicable or only one will hold good. I have registered for both.

      Both will be applicable.
      As they are different offers with different rewards and qualifying matrix.

      I have also registered for insurance spends and planning to pay that via Amex and double dip in offers.

      Hi Gagan,

      From my experience, Amex offers stack up – so both offers will be should be applicable. Although it would not hurt and check with Amex guys, considering how good support guys are – this shouldn’t take more than 5 mins to verfiy.

    Not related to Amex but recently I got an offer on my ICICI credit card. The offer was spend 20k and get 1500 cashback (7.5% return) or spend 40k and get 4000 cashback (10% return). Didn’t know ICICI is becoming so much proactive in CC business!

    Well, I got ‘Offer 1: Rs.30,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 6L spend’ on my Platinum Travel Card. But I think I may take a pass here because of 2 reasons –
    1. Limit of 6L is too high and I do not foresee expenses even close to that number in next 2 months
    2. Doubling down on Marriott Rewards (now Marriott Bonvoy) these days. And bookings made through any third party website does not count towards Elite Status

    Considering these points I do not see much value (and satisfaction) in stretching / rerouting my expenses towards Amex card.

      Hi Ajay – Can you pls explain more on second point. What is the double dip offer on Mariott Rewards?

      Reply
      1. Ajay

        Oh, I was not talking about any offers on Marriott.

        What I meant was that – I have started to put my bets on Marriott Bonvoy now – it becomes pretty rewarding and especially if you spend 50+ nights with them per year. Considering the coverage Marriott has, I do not think there is anything that comes close this loyalty program right now – India or Abroad.

          Oh! Got it now. I agree. My target is to rake up enough points to redeem in Maldives. I read somewhere that if you book 4 nights (even thru points)….you get 1 free.

    Got Offer 2: Rs.20,000 Hotel Stay Voucher on 4L spend on my Plat Reserve but not chasing it , spends way too high.
    These spend offers are primarily targeted to tap the big insurance spends of the salaried class. It’s a pity that Feb – March becomes a sweet time for insurance companies given the tax saving rush and every CC companies are coming with 5x/10x rewards and cashback !
    Note : Not received this offer on my Amex Travel Card .

    Have recently got the Amex platinum travel card under the first year free scheme. I noticed that none of the offers are being made available to me. Is it because the card is recently issued or because it is first year free?
