American Express has launched 2 new Amex Offers for Celebrity Cruises, and if you’re looking to book a cruise, you’re in for quite a few bonus points! Amex Offers are an easy way to not only save on various purchases but also earn bonus points for selected spending.
There are 2 Amex Offers for Celebrity Cruises, and you’ll likely be targeted for either one, but not both. As with all Amex Offers, they are targeted and you may not see any of them in your account, so it’s always worth checking to see what you may be eligible for. To access your Amex Offers, simply log into your Amex app or the website and you’ll be able to add the offer to your card from there.
These are the 2 offers you may see in your account:
- Earn 17,500 bonus Membership Rewards points when you spend $500 or more with Celebrity Cruises
- Earn 35,000 bonus Membership Rewards points when you spend $1,000 or more with Celebrity Cruises
These are enormous point bonuses and are one of the higher offers seen through the Amex Offers system. If you take advantage of the spend $1,000, earn 35,000 points offer, at the very lowest value, that’s like getting $350 back on your $1,000 purchase … but of course, if you transfer those points to any number of the Amex airline partners, you’ll likely get even more value.
Your cruise must be purchased by March 31, 2023, but the sailing can actually take place after that.
Hot Tip: Many Amex Offers require the charge to post by the expiration date, so you’ll want to purchase your sailing a few days ahead of time to allow the charge to settle.
One important detail is that Celebrity Cruises must be the merchant of record when you purchase. If you’re purchasing directly through Celebrity Cruises, there will be no issues, but if you are utilizing a travel agent, you’ll want to make sure the purchase codes as Celebrity Cruises so that you can earn the extra points.
The $500+ or $1,000+ transaction needs to be for the cruise itself, and can’t be used on onboard purchases or similar transactions. Similarly, you can’t use it on Celebrity Cruises’ partner, Royal Caribbean. Music & Themed, LGBTQ+ VACAYA cruises, and Tie the Knot cruises are excluded from the offer.
If you’re considering planning a cruise, these new Amex Offers provide a great incentive to sail on Celebrity Cruises. You’ll earn at least 17,500 points for a sailing costing $500 or more. Be sure to book your cruise before March 31 so that you can take advantage.
