American Express routinely puts out attractive offers via its Amex Offers program, good for a variety of merchants, including retailers, restaurants, hotels, airlines, and more. One of its latest Amex Offers gives you an opportunity to earn $100 back when you spend $500 or more at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts or Sofitel Hotels & Resorts.

The Offer

When you book your stay by August 31, 2022, you can earn $100 back if you spend $500 or more at any Fairmont hotel or Sofitel hotel in the U.S. or Mexico. In order to register for the offer, you’ll need to visit your Amex app, scroll to the Offers tab on the bottom, and scroll through the credit cards you have to see which have the offer available. Generally, this offer will be available on more premium credit or charge cards.

Most credits are issued back to your card within a few weeks after your purchase, so it’s a relatively painless way to get a considerable discount on your next stay.

Assuming you spend exactly $500 at Fairmont or Sofitel, the $100 you get back is a 20% discount, making this a fantastic offer. The best way to maximize it is to spend as close to (but over) $500 as possible.

Terms and Conditions

There are a few things you need to be aware of when using this offer:

  • It’s only available at U.S. or Mexico hotels, so if you’re staying anywhere else, you won’t be able to take advantage. One of the downsides of this offer is that Fairmont’s most famous and luxurious properties are actually located in Canada, which is specifically excluded from this offer.
  • You’ll need to make your reservation directly with Fairmont or Sofitel (or their parent company Accor) via the website or phone. If you book via a third party, you will not be able to use this offer.
  • It is only available at Fairmont and Sofitel brands, and specifically excludes Sofitel Legend, SO/, and M Gallery.
  • The offer is only good for room rates and room charges, so you’ll be able to charge things to your room to surpass the required $500 spend if need be. Keep in mind, Fairmont and Sofitel are the luxury brands of Accor, and room rates can well exceed $500 a night even during low season.

Final Thoughts

Even if you don’t have an upcoming Fairmont or Sofitel trip in the works, you’ll want to add this Amex Offer to your eligible American Express card. The savings is significant if you can spend $500, and with these hotels already being pricey, any discount is certainly welcome.
