One of the best perks of having an American Express credit card in your wallet is having access to Amex Offers.
Case in point: right now, select cardmembers can take advantage of an offer that will allow them to earn a bonus of 5,000 American Express Membership Rewards points when booking an Airbnb stay of $250 or more — let’s take a look at the details!
Airbnb Amex Offer Details
Like most Amex Offers, the Airbnb offer is targeted (so don’t be surprised if you don’t see this offer in your account). However, if you have multiple Amex cards, be sure to check each of them.
If you are targeted, remember to activate the offer by saving it to your card before making the purchase, or else you won’t receive your bonus Membership Rewards points.
You’ll be required to spend at least $250 in 1 transaction either online at Airbnb.com or through the Airbnb app (iOS, Android), and you have until December 30, 2021, to book your eligible stay.
Is It Worth It?
We value Amex Membership Reward points at 2.2 cents apiece, meaning these 5,000 bonus points would be worth about $110. That’s a nice return on your spending, and far better than, for example, receiving $50 off your stay.
If you have an American Express® Green Card, be sure to check to see if it has been targeted for this offer. The card earns an elevated 3x Membership Rewards points on travel purchases, allowing you to “double-dip” on the savings as well as earning a bonus on the money you do spend.

At a time when spending time with family and friends — but away from the general public in hotels or crowded cities — is still a priority for many, this offer couldn’t be more timely. If you’re targeted for this 5,000-point bonus and were planning to book an Airbnb stay anyway, this is an offer to get excited about.
