Found my answer in the thread - yes, supplementary card spending will count towards the 3k
Just to confirm, spending from either the primary or supplementary card will count towards the 3k minimum, right?


Just applied now and it still seemed to work, 60k points, free supp card. Thanks!

Yes.... the problem for me is that Mariott (where I usually stay) doesn't give loyalty perks when booked with a travel agency.

Fortunately I'm travelling a few times this year so I just booked some airline tickets with them to get the $200.

Some people book a hotel with a refundable rate and then just refund it the next month... but it's easier just to use it for airline tickets if you're going to be buying those anyway.
Hilton has done that too. I redeemed my BMO points for Hotel in Hawaii only to find out that it wasn’t eligible for Honors points or other benefits because they were considered a third party travel agent. And I couldn’t use the key app at the hotel either. I wonder if Amex has a different agreement with them since these hotels and programs are named.

Will the $200 plat travel credit be clawed back if the hotel reservation is cancelled?
Information is wealth, but again, depends on what you're pursuing & what it's worth to you😎💡

The current deal ends Jan 31 2020 and there isn't anything saying that they will continue the promotion after that so it's a bit of unknown. And with the free supplementary card you should be able to get 8 free nights since the second card gets it's own hotel statuses.

I haven't done it yet but I think you need to match to Wyndham rewards first then to Caesar's. The instructions should be online if you google their reward programs.
Do we have to book before jan 31 or actually start the stay before the date?

how much gambling activity do we have to show to not have the freebies taken away?

I'm pretty sure you have to start the stay before that date.

I don't think anyone knows exactly but it looks like it's at least 4 hours of rated play during your stay which probably has a betting minimum of $25 but that's not a sure thing. It could even be higher. Between that, the daily resort fees and expensive food it's really not that hot of a deal.

The code still works.... but here's the trick i used....

https://www.americanexpress.com/ca/en/c ... =100345107

For the RSVP code type in "SDPLAT11241241" (a bunch of extra numbers...) if it show you a weird error message (in red writing), then type SDPLAT1 (the real code) and it let me get my application in.

it also allowed me to add an extra user "free supplemental user" so that worked fine too

Only the link on the first page of the discussion is expired. However, the deal is still alive.

I just applied for one for my wife.... are they still sending these out Fedex overnight? Hoping to get it Tuesday, we have a trip Friday and I want to use her card to get my friends into the Plaza Premium lounge in YVR and then the Centurion lounge in Houston.

I applied on a Tuesday and got it on Friday. I'm in the GTA though.

Does the Amex Supplementary card holder get their own separate hotel status from the the primary holder? The reason I ask, my spouse and I each have our own Marriott Bonvoy account.

Yes each works as seperate cards for status
