2,000 lucky holders of The Platinum Card from American Express are about to get themselves a very generous offer indeed – £400 of free Marriott International hotel stays!

This new offer has just launched. Only 2,000 people are able to register.

EDIT: If you checked your card earlier and it was not there, check again. I looked at 7am when I wrote this article and I couldn’t see it. At 10am, it was showing and I could register. Another reader said that it only appeared at 2pm on their account. It is also important that you check the website and not just the app, since the app only shows some of the offers for which you are targeted.

American Express Amex Platinum card £400 free Marriott stays

If you have The Platinum Card, I STRONGLY recommend that you look at your online offers page IMMEDIATELY. If you see this offer, click ‘save to card’. It will disappear as soon as 2,000 people have saved it.

I do NOT have this offer. It is possible that this is one for non-Londoners.

Do I really get £400 of free stays?

Yes. Here are the terms:

Spend £400 and get £400 cashback

You must stay by 23rd November

Valid at participating hotels

£400 of free Marriott hotel stays

What hotels are ‘participating’?

Not many, unfortunately. However, they are all very high end and you’re in for a treat with your free £400.

In the UK, your options are:

I live in London. This is pointless for me.

No it isn’t. Assuming that you simply don’t just fancy a change of scene, how about this?

Book the cheapest room you can find, and then spend the difference up to £400 in the hotel restaurant and bar. Go home at night if you must, then pop back to check out the next day.

Think of all the Marriott Bonvoy points you’ll earn as well!

There are numerous non-UK options too although only two German hotels are outside the UK quarantine rules.

If you are targetted for this offer, you are in for a great short break. Enjoy!

PS. On Tuesday, I hope to run another article showing the special benefits that you will get if you book via our hotel booking partner Emyr Thomas.

    Not on my account, sadly 🙁

  • Simon Spanswick says:

    Got it! Thanks, as always, Rob.

  • Manya says:

    Thanks for flagging – I have it saved it down on my card. Will be used over Oct HT as a substitute for our recently cancelled trip to Crete.

  • AK says:

    Muchos Gracias. I got it. As a data point I’m in zone 6 towards Surrey; but don’t have a London postcode.

  • Fred says:

    (once again) Not available on Amex Platinum Business

    • Rob says:

      It’s only 2,000 people – I reckon the vast majority won’t have it.

    • Mr(s) Entitled says:

      Nor mine. My Amex Plat Business will be getting kicked into touch in the next 30 days. It’s offering very little benefit currently.

  • John says:

    Just found it in my Centurion offers, I’m in London too.

  • Nicholas says:

    Nothing for me, North Yorkshire postcode. Fantastic offer for those who got it. Cheers Rob.

  • Frankdjs says:

    We do have a London E14 postcode and did get the offer. 🙂 Nice anniversary staycation.

      Likewise. Only problem is hubby cannot go as he has to stay home with the dog – unless we can find a dog friendly hotel, not sure about Marriott but some Hiltons are. I am thinking of treating our pastor’s wife. She has worked awfully hard during this lockdown with the little kiddies.
