Saving money is always great, especially when it comes to reducing your cost on travel expenses. If you’re planning a hotel stay soon, you should check out your Amex Offers to see if you’ve been targeted for a discount with Expedia — allowing you to save up to $100.
Let’s take a look at the offer details.
Expedia Amex Offer Details
For those who are unfamiliar with Amex Offers, these are targeted deals for Amex cardholders that allow you to save money on various purchases, including travel, shopping, dining, and more.
This newest iteration allows those who spend with Expedia to save 10% (up to $100 back) on prepaid hotel bookings.
The offer is targeted, so you’ll want to check your account to see if it’s available for you. Here are the additional terms to keep in mind:
- Enrollment is required.
- The offer expires on April 12, 2024.
- Get a 10% rebate on prepaid hotel bookings with a maximum of $100 in statement credits.
- You must book via a specific link.
- The offer can be used across multiple purchases.
Is It Worth It?
While we’ll almost always say it’s worth it to use a discount that’ll save you money, this one is a little more sticky. Yes, you can definitely maximize this discount to get 10% off a hotel booking, but should you?
For the most part, we don’t recommend booking hotels through a third party. This is because hotel chains are the stingiest when it comes to giving out rewards for third-party bookings. By booking through Expedia, you’ll be missing out on any elite status benefits that you currently have, as well as the opportunity to earn elite night credits for achieving status.
Now, if you’re not someone who’s loyal to any one hotel chain, you may want to take advantage of this offer. As we mentioned above, it’s only valid on prepaid stays booked through a specific link, so keep that in mind when you’re looking.
You’ll also want to double-dip your earnings by stacking this offer with a shopping portal. Rakuten is currently offering up to 8% cash-back on hotels booked with Expedia:
8% cash-back is great and all, but you can also opt to earn American Express Membership Rewards points.
Why is this important? Because we value Amex points at 2.2 cents each, meaning you’re effectively doubling your return versus choosing cash back. This is on top of the up to $100 rebate you’re getting with your Amex Offer.
Hot Tip: Looking for a way to spend all those Amex points? We’ve got you covered in our guide to the best ways to redeem Amex Membership Rewards points for max value.
Saving 10% on prepaid hotels booked through Expedia is a pretty decent offer for those who have been targeted, especially if the cost of your stay is above, but close to getting the $100 cash-back.
Although it’s not always the best idea to book hotels with a third party, the ability to save up to $100 on your stay — and stack it with a shopping portal — makes this a pretty enticing offer worth considering.
