I just thought I would pass along one of the latest AMEX offers. If you have an AMEX, you may have been targeted for this latest offer for $30 off of a $150 spend. You can make the reservation through your Marriott account, obviously, but instead of using your Marriott Card, use your AMEX to pay for the room. Note, that this is only on room rate and room charges. Also, it seems pretty restrictive to just the actual "MARRIOTT" branded hotels.
Luckily, I was targeted for this offer on my SPG AMEX, so I will still earn 2x the SPG points on my Marriott stay this weekend, each of which will transfer to my Marriott account at 1:3. Normally, I would use my Marriott Rewards card since my SPG points do not add to my lifetime points balance but since I am only staying one night this weekend, the $30 off seems like a good deal and I will still get credit for the night's stay as well as my Megabonus points!
