Travel News You Can Use: AMEX Offers ($50 off $100 spend at Airbnb)

Today AMEX released a fantastic AMEX Offer for cardholders. If you spend $100 or more,  you’ll get back $50. Here are the details of the offer:


Enrollment limited. Offer valid for approved bookings and gift cards purchased on and the Airbnb mobile app. Offer valid for a single transaction of $100 or more made by 12/31/15. Offer not valid for bookings made with gift cards. Offer valid for eligible domestic and international Airbnb locations. Must add offer to eligible American Express® Card and use same Card to redeem. Only US-issued American Express Cards are eligible for this offer. Limit 1 statement credit per American Express Card across all American Express offer channels. Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 12/31/15, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Note that American Express may not receive information about your qualifying purchase from the merchant until all items from your qualifying purchase have been provided by the merchant. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you will not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer.

If you look above. I underlined “gift cards”. With this offer, it allows you to buy gift cards. So you can buy a gift card for $100, get a credit back of $50 from Amex. So essentially you’re getting $50 off for every $100 spend. I had a total of 4 Amex cards split between Rodalyn and I so we were able to save up to $200 for our next Airbnb stay.

Here I will show you how to enroll in this offer.

AMEX Login

The easiest way to see if you qualify for this offer is by simply logging into your AMEX account.


Then scroll down to “Amex Offers & Benefits. Then, click-through and see if you qualify for the offer. Unfortunately for me, I was only eligible to receive the offer on 1 out of 3 of my AMEX cards.


However, don’t be in doubt as there is another way to add this offer to your AMEX cards if you don’t see the offer online.


Simply go to the following link: Amex Offers on Twitter


Sign in and connect whichever AMEX card you want the offer to be on.


Then tweet #amexairbnb. It will take a while but the representatives of AMEX should automatically enroll you into the offer.


Within a couple of minutes Amex Offers should tweet you back claiming you’re now enrolled with the connected card.

New Airbnb Guests

If you sign up for Airbnb with my referral link. You will save an additional $20 off your first stay on top of this $50 offer. This is only valid for first time users who have never signed up with Airbnb. Nonetheless, it’s a great complimentary offer as it’ll automatically get you $20 off. This is a great way to save on future travels.

Bottom Line

Online I was able to enroll 2 out of 4 of our cards using the Amex offer sign in. Then I synced up the other two cards online with the Amex Offer sync with Twitter. We saved $200 for our next Airbnb stay.


Will you be cashing in on this offer?
