Once an American Express Card Member connects their eligible Card with TripAdvisor, they unlock three new offerings on the platform, which can all be accessed directly from the exclusive American Express Card Member hub.
- Card Members Get Credit for Reviews Starting today, when a Card Member who has connected their eligible Card with TripAdvisor leaves a review at a location where they have used their connected Card, the review will be labeled as an "Amex Card Member Review." In addition, they will be badged as an "Amex Traveler" in their TripAdvisor profile. The new review and profile features provide additional, relevant context for all TripAdvisor users to take into consideration while travel planning. And at launch, when a connected Card Member's first review as an "Amex Traveler" is approved and published on TripAdvisor, they will get a one-time American Express statement credit for $5 in the US and Australia and £5 in the UK ( see terms).
- Hotspots for Card Members, by Card MembersAmerican Express Card Member Hotspots are exclusive lists of the top restaurants and hotels trending with Card Members in select cities. Lists are created by leveraging aggregate American Express Spend Graph data in some of the most popular travel locations around the world. Card Members who have connected their Card with TripAdvisor can view the lists by selecting their destination city and travel type – like "Globetrotter" or "Strictly Business" – at www.tripadvisor.com/amex.
- Card Member Perks Pay OffCard Members can also now discover exciting perks – offers from American Express merchants around the world on TripAdvisor that they can redeem for couponless savings when they spend on their trip. To redeem an offer, a Card Member can simply click on the offer to save it to their connected American Express Card, and then use that Card to make a qualified purchase in-store or online with that merchant. Savings are delivered via an automatic statement credit issued by American Express. This new functionality on TripAdvisor is powered by the same proprietary American Express Card Sync technology that enables couponless offers on platforms like Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter and Xbox.
