A new Amex Offer has surfaced that allows you to earn 20% of your total purchases as a statement credit by using your American Express cards at Shangri-La hotels in Canada until March 31, 2023.
This offer will give you up to $150 back, which would require you to spend at least $750 during the offer period. If you’re eyeing a stay at one of the two Canadian properties in Toronto or Vancouver, be sure to take advantage of this 20% discount offer.
Shangri-La Hotels: 20% Back as a Statement Credit
With this offer, you’ll earn 20% back of your total purchase as a statement credit at Shangri-La hotels in Canada, up to a total of $150, equivalent to $750 of total spend. The total cost after all taxes and fees are accounted for will count as the total purchase.
Eligible use cases include transactions made at the Shangri-La Toronto, Shangri-La Vancouver, or at the Shangri-La Amex website for one of these two properties.
Each time an eligible transaction is made, this offer will be triggered, and you can expect 20% back in the form of a statement credit.
The terms and conditions state that the statement credit will be applied within 90 days of the offer expiry date, but it will most likely show up within a few days after the transaction.
This offer expires on March 31, 2023, and there’s no registration cap.
It’s worth noting that the 20% back as a statement credit technically only applies to room rates and room charges, but items such as gift cards purchased at the front desk are virtually indistinguishable. Thus, if you plan to eat at the hotel restaurant(s) or use the spa, you can ask for those purchases to be processed as a regular hotel charge.
We’ve seen this offer popping up across a wide range of American Express cards. If you’re playing the game in two-player mode or more, be sure to check each individual’s cards to see whether the offer has shown up and register accordingly.
Enhancing Your Stay with Shangri-La Luxury Circle
Prior to March 2021, the American Express Platinum Card had included Shangri-La Jade status as part of its benefits. If you had registered for this status before then, you might notice that your Shangri-La account still reflects your Jade status today.
Shangri-La Jade comes with daily breakfast for two, room upgrades, guaranteed room availability when booked at least 72 hours prior to arrival, and early check-in, and late check-out of 11am and 4pm, respectively, subject to availability.
If you don’t have Jade status, or even if you do but you wish to further elevate your stay, booking with Prince of Travel through Shangri-La Luxury Circle would entitle you to additional benefits for no additional cost.
- Daily full breakfast for two guests, including in-room dining
- Upgrade to the next room type category, subject to availability at the time of booking
- Early check-in and late check-out, subject to availability
- Property credit of $100 (USD) or 10% of the room rate, whichever is higher
- Welcome amenity
- Third, Fourth, or Fifth Night Free at select properties
The Luxury Circle rate is the same as the best available flexible rate, which can be higher than prepaid rates, member rates, corporate rates, etc. that you may also have access to.
In this case, you’ll want to weigh up the savings on those rates and how much you value the benefits of booking through Luxury Circle.
Scotiabank American Express Cardholders Can Register Too
As we’ve seen on previous Amex Offers, the offer is also available for primary and supplementary cardholders of the Scotiabank American Express products, including the Scotiabank Gold American Express Card, the Scotiabank American Express Card, and the Scotiabank Platinum American Express Card.
The registration portal is accessible via this link.
This gives you yet another avenue to maximizing your savings under this promotion by registering and using the Amex Offer on both your Amex- and Scotiabank-issued products.
If you have a more expensive stay at the Shangri-La Toronto or Vancouver lined up, you can register multiple primary and supplementary cardholders for the offer and split the bill to maximize the $150 statement credits.
A new Amex Offer allows eligible cardholders to earn 20% back in statement credit on any transactions made at Shangri-La hotels in Canada, up to $150 back. The statement credit is provided as a part of the total spend after all taxes and fees have been accounted for.
You should have at least one American Express card targeted for this offer, so be sure to check all of your cards to see if the promotion pops up. For those with Scotiabank American Express products, be sure to register via the portal link to multiply your savings.
This offer expires on March 31, 2023, so you’ll want to plan your stays before then to take advantage of this offer.
