Yes, that is the current offer, expires May 8. When you are charged for your stay, the $20 is credited usually within a week. You don't necessarily have to wait for your next Amex statement to close.

According to the terms listed on the Amex site, no. You must book a reservation directly with Best Western.

Thanks, this answers my question. I will stop at my local Best Western hotel and purchase gift cards to trigger my current Amex offers.

Please report back if that triggers the statement credit. The current offer terms state "Offer only valid on room rate and room charges." But as we know, sometimes things work differently than stated in the terms.

I did a stay reserved directly with Best Western. The $20 credit showed up the day after checkout.

I went to several different Best Western locations in my area and NONE of them carried the travel cards. I was told I can call the 800 number to purchase over the phone or buy them online. I am not sure if either option would trigger the credit and the offer expires tomorrow.

This is US Amex-only offer? Or I can use any Amex card for that?

These offers are all targeted. So you have to (a) see and (b) enroll in the offer while viewing your account online for the offer to work, and it only works on the card on which you signed up for the offer (in case you have multiple Amex cards).

Do you have a list of Amex Offers (typically of the form "get $XX back when spending $YYY at ZZZ") always showing on your Home page on the Amex website you use (below the recent activity)? If you do, that's where you have to look for Amex Offers such at these. If you don't, then Amex presumably doesn't do Amex Offers in your country.
