Maximize new AMEX Offers for Silversea Cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, and Preferred Hotels & Resorts. While these offers are great with earning additional AMEX Membership Rewards points or statement credit, you can make the most of them by leveraging your travel companion's AMEX Offer and by reserving as a TravelSort Client to enjoy additional amenities and perks.
1. Silversea Cruises: Earn 5X Points per Dollar Up to 50,000 Membership Rewards Points
Earn 5X points per dollar spent with Silversea cruises by 12/31/22, up to 50,000 Membership Rewards points. Offer valid for reservations booked by phone or with TravelSort or your travel advisor where Silversea is reflected as the Merchant of Record. Excludes purchases onboard and the Silversea Shop. Excludes if not booked at time of reservation: Silversea air program, hotel, baggage valet, spa appointments, expeditions, shore excursions, and insurance.
Maximize the Silversea Offer
A number of Silversea voyages are Virtuoso Voyages, where TravelSort Clients enjoy additional shipboard credit as well as a private welcome reception on board. Keep in mind that since the 5X points per dollar benefit is only up to 50,000 points, equivalent to $10,000 spend, and many cruises are more than that, you'll want to have your travel companion also add this offer to his/her AMEX card and split the fare between at least two cards, and possibly also put some on a Chase Sapphire Reserve given its higher trip cancellation/trip interruption coverage (see AMEX Trip Cancellation Insurance: Chase Sapphire Still Better).
2. Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Earn 5X Points per Dollar Up to 50,000 Membership Rewards Points
Earn 5X points per dollar spent with Regent Seven Seas cruises by 12/31/22, up to 50,000 Membership Rewards points. All transactions must be in USD. Excludes onboard purchases, gift order, Regent Choice shore excursions, transportation to and from the ship when not included in cruise fare.
Maximize the Regent Seven Seas Offer
As with Silversea, many Regent Seven Seas sailings are Virtuoso Voyages, where TravelSort can provide additional amenities to clients.
3. Preferred Hotels & Resorts
- Enroll by saving the offer to the AMEX card you wish to use; you'll only be able to save it to one card. We prefer to use the no annual fee AMEX Blue Business Plus, which earns 2X Membership Rewards points on all spend.
- Use your enrolled AMEX card to spend $500+ in room rate and room charges at a participating Preferred Hotels & Resorts property in the US, UK, Mexico, or Italy, to receive a $100 statement credit
- Stay must be before December 15, 2022
Maximizing the Preferred Hotels Offer
As we've suggested before, if your bill will be $1000+, you and your travel partner can each save the AMEX Offer to your respective AMEX cards and split the bill, so that you each receive a $100 statement credit.
An especially good way to maximize the offer is to reserve as a TravelSort Client. Our clients receive Preferred Hotels & Resorts Preferred Platinum benefits at select Preferred Hotels & Resorts properties. The link above lists U.S. and Mexico hotels, and we can assist clients with reserving qualifying UK and Italy hotels to receive these Platinum benefits:
- Breakfast for Two Daily
- $100 Hotel Credit per Stay (to be used on services such as spa, dining, or selected amenity valued at $100 or more)
