There’s a new Amex Offer available for 2 of Choice Hotels’ top brands — Cambria and Ascend. You can get $100 back after spending $300 on room rates and room charges.

Here are the details of this new offer.

Offer Details

A new Amex Offer is available that will appeal to fans of the Choice Privileges program. From October 6, 2023, through December 31, 2023, you can get a $100 statement credit after spending $300 or more on room rates and room charges at participating Cambria and Ascend Hotel Collection properties in the U.S. These charges can be in 1 or more transactions.

As with any Amex Offer, there’s some fine print you’ll want to check out before booking.

  • The Amex Offer must be added to your card before making a purchase.
  • The offer is limited to 1 per cardmember.
  • Payment for the hotel stay must be made between October 6, 2023, and December 31, 2023.
  • Reservations must be made online or through the Choice mobile app (iOS, Android). Third-party bookings are not eligible for this promotion.
  • The offer excludes physical gift cards purchased online, e-gift cards, and corporate and bulk gift cards.
  • Ascend casino properties are excluded.

Is It Worth It?

Getting $100 back after spending $300 is a great deal, any way you look at it. If you participate in the Choice Privileges program, you’ll still earn Choice points and earn nights towards elite status since these bookings are made directly through Choice.

Even if you have the top-level Choice credit card, the Choice Privileges® Select Mastercard®, which earns 10x points spent at Choice hotels, using this Amex Offer is still a better option. If you spent exactly $300 on that card, you’d earn 3,000 points. Considering we value Choice points at 0.6 cents each, those points are worth $18, which is significantly less than what you could get by paying with an American Express card using this Amex Offer and then receiving $100 back as a statement credit.

Final Thoughts

There’s a new Amex Offer available for Ascend and Cambria hotels. You’ll get a $100 statement credit after spending $300 or more at either of these brands from October 6, 2023, through December 31, 2023. If you have a trip coming up and can find an Ascent Collection or Cambria hotel to stay at, it’s certainly worth considering taking advantage of this Amex Offer if you’re targeted for it.
