The AMEX HAL offer is back. You get $150 back off a $500 new booking. I don't see it on any of my cards yet, but saw it listed on Boarding Area.

Hmm.. I don't have it yet, either. I have a HAL cruise next week but I would buy some OBC, which worked in the past.

Us too. Have held off to buy OBC/Beverage cards hoping another would come through. Thanks much for the heads up, will keep an eye out.

Amex sometimes spreads out the release of these offers, so don't give up hope yet. With any luck, there will be a comparable one with points, too.

I've never seen one with points, just the $ off, even on Membership Rewards cards.

Please post the details. I checked the reference website and couldn't find anything there.

It isn't specific to any Amex card, but in the past, it has shown up on my Platinum, Business Platinum, and Everyday.

While I see it mentioned on the Blog, https://milestomemories.boardingarea.com/new-amex-offers-16/ 

I do not see it yet on the AmEx Offers site: https://www.americanexpress.com/us/network/shopping.html#all 

 

Anyone know, once it is available, would this work with an Upsell Offer?

 

THANKS!

I am not certain how you are going to use it with an upsell offer, but what I did a couple of months ago was to purchase OBC ($500).  I only ended up using $150 of that, so got a $350 credit back on the card (a different one) I used to register for the cruise.

Thanks, DaveOKC!  I was just curious if those who had already booked and paid but registered their card and then used that card to accept an Upsell would qualify for the rebate.

I would think that as long as the charge was at least $500 an upsell would work.  HOWEVER, usually these deals are for new bookings. so there is no guarantee that it will this time.  I figure that you have nothing to lose, so go ahead and try it.

Yeah disappointing. Looks like hardly anyone is getting this deal so far.

They may say new bookings but those of us who have used the offer in the past know that this is not true. In reality, they have no idea of knowing whether it's for a new booking or payment on an existing reservation. All that matters is that the charge comes thru from the correct merchant, Holland America Reservations.
