AMEX Platinum x Marriott Tang Plaza promotion
To purchase these vouchers, send an email to [email protected] and quote “AMEX Love Dining Privileges”. You’ll receive a link to make payment online (payment has to be done with an AMEX card, obviously).
There’s no limit to the number of vouchers you can buy, and validity is till 30 November 2020. Vouchers will be issued in denominations of S$50, and can be used at the following restaurants:
- Marriott Cafe
- Wan Hao
- Lobby Lounge
Do note that you’ll have to physically collect your vouchers at the hotel. Vouchers can be used for both dine in and take away, but cannot be combined with other promotional programs or discounts such as Love Dining.
But what about Love Dining?
Speaking of Love Dining, you may be wondering why you’d want to lock up money in vouchers when you can get 50% off on an ad-hoc basis.
Two main reasons. First, Love Dining’s 50% off only applies when you dine with two people. The more people in your party (or if you’re dining solo), the lower the discount:
- 2 pax: 50% off
- 3 pax: 33% off
- 4 pax: 25% off
- 5-10/20 pax: 20% off*
- Dining alone: 10-15% off
|*5-10 pax for hotel partners, 5-20 pax for restaurant partners|
These vouchers can therefore be used whenever you’re dining in a larger group, but still want to enjoy 50% off.
Second, Love Dining’s discount does not extend to beverages, whether alcoholic or otherwise. These 50% off vouchers will.
If memory serves me correctly, eatigo was also offering 50% off at Marriott Tang Plaza’s restaurants before Covid-19, so it’s worth seeing if they bring that back. Eatigo’s discount does not cover drinks, however.
If you enjoy the restaurants at the Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel, this is a good way of securing a future discount on your dining.
On another note, Love Dining benefits have now resumed with the reopening of restaurants under Phase 2. I visited 15 Stamford on Friday and received the usual discounts, just as before the circuit breaker.
Love Dining benefits are not affected by the government’s advisory against offering promotions in the first two weeks of Phase 2. In all likelihood, that rule was intended for promotions above and beyond what the restaurant normally offers, as opposed to evergreen ones.
