If you’re planning an end of year/early January getaway to Thailand, it may interest you to know that there’s a new AMEX offer for selected Marriott Bonvoy resorts. Spending S$600 or more gets you S$150 back, up to a maximum of 3 times.
|What are AMEX Offers?
|AMEX Offers are available to Platinum, True Cashback and KrisFlyer cobrand cardholders, and can be found in the “Offers” section of the AMEX app. Offers may include bonus points/miles, or discounts in the form of statement credits. Registration is required, and keep in mind that some may be targeted. These are not applicable to DBS/Citi/UOB AMEX cardholders.
I can’t confirm if this is a targeted offer or not, but I’ve received the same offer on my AMEX Platinum Charge, AMEX Platinum Reserve and AMEX KrisFlyer Ascend. Remember to save the offer to activate it- it’s limited to the first 15,000 registered cards.
This offer is valid for payments at eligible properties made by 31 January 2020, which are booked through official Marriott channels like Marriott.com, the Marriott app or on the phone with Marriott reservations.
Here’s the full list of eligible properties:
- JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa
- Le Meridien Khao Lak Resort & Spa
- Le Meridine Koh Samui Resort & Spa
- Sheraton Samui Resort
- Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui
- W Koh Samui
- Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort
- Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa, Merlin Beach
- Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa
- The Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa
Sadly, the offer is not valid for properties in Bangkok- it’s strictly for beach lovers only.
Although you can enjoy this offer up to three times on a registered card, you will only get one credit per participating property. However, if you’ve received the offer on multiple cards, you can register and use separate cards to pay to enjoy multiple credits. For example, I could register both my AMEX Platinum Charge and AMEX Platinum Reserve card, and get S$150 x 2 when I spend S$600 x 2 at the Vana Belle.
Stack with RebateMango for bonus cashback
To maximize your rebate, book your stay through a cashback site. These sites allow you to click through to the official Marriott booking page, so you’ll enjoy your AMEX rebate stacked with cashback. Marriott Bonvoy is currently available on Rakuten (formerly known as Ebates) and RebateMango, but not ShopBack. RebateMango is offering between 3.75-10% cashback on Marriott Bonvoy bookings, depending on where you’re staying and how long.
If you’re not an existing RebateMango customer, you can sign up with the link below to get a bonus S$5 upon your first booking.
S$150 off a S$600 expenditure is a 25% rebate, with potentially more coming your way if you book via a cashback site. Be sure to register before paying, and pay by 31 January 2020.
Remember that AMEX is running a S$75 off a S$300 offer at selected Hilton resorts during the same period, including some in Koh Samui and Phuket, so there’s options if you intend to resort hop.
