Privileges Travel | American Express Travel

Here's a different one, which appears like you don't even need to have an American Express card to use:https://www.privilegestravel.com/en/login/

This one works differently than most OTAs that I am used to, because you pretty much have to sign in to see anything. There is a little bit that you can browse without signing up for an account, but not much.

The kicker is that you can create an account for free, and they give you $150 in Travel Savings Credits right off the bat. Looking around, you can use those on Hotels, and Cruises.

I haven't heard much about it yet, but it looks pretty good. Any one else use them yet? Were there any additional savings if you were an American Express cardholder vs not?

We used this this week for a booking in New York. Here is what we found...The first rate was on Travelocity the Second on Privileges Travel. Was a no brainer we picked privilegestravel.com for the three night stay. For fun and boredom, checked Vegas trip later this year, Same results Averaged about 35% cheaper, especially for Hilton resorts.

Andaz Wall Street $405 compared to $207 48.89%

Millennium Hilton New York Downtown $437 compared to $283 35.24%

Hotel On Rivington $415 compared to $265 36.14%

So what's the connection to AmEx or does AmEx just make them sound more credible?
