Had you charged to the room and settled at checkout, or did you just dine in and pay at the restaurant?

I would have assumed the hotel and restaurant have separate merchant facilities so Marriott offer only triggers when settling charges to the room account, and dining credit only triggers when settling at restaurant POS terminal. But if both restaurant and hotel use the same merchant facilities then I would expect it to stack...

I wasn't staying at the hotel at the time, so as much as I would have liked to charge it to someone's room, I paid in full at the restaurant :)

Come to think of it, one could really eek out some great savings by booking one night at the Ritz using FHR through the platinum card. You pay in advance with a travel credit. Then if you have the Marriot offer on multiple cards you hit up Hearth and Songbird.

Nothing yet, 14th September purchase.
I notice in the AMEX app that my Liquorland offer was “Recently redeemed” on 01/10/2021. So maybe their system is catching up. No credit yet.

Is there a way to use Liquorland offers online without buying booze now? My normal strategy would be to buy CMGC but my wife is a doctor so I can't afford to be at a Liquorland that subsequently becomes an exposure site, as the adjacent Coles did a couple of weeks ago. Can I buy a Liquorland gift card at Liquorland.com.au? If so I couldn't find it. And if I'm going to buy from Liquorland I'd prefer to do so when there's a decent sale on something.

I used it on a delivery order (free if spending over $100).

(This was in addition to a Liquorland $10 off for spending over $100 promotion and a 3000 FB points offer ($15) for spending over $100 as well :D)

Has anyone managed to use the Pet Circle offer (spend 50 for 20 rebate). I cannot get the website to accept Amex card.

I haven't used it in the last week since they reinstated the offer, but I've successfully purchased from them multiple times before (including successful Amex Offer redemptions).

It happened to me 2 or 3 days ago. I did an online chat with Amex, not expecting any immediate resolution but just to alert them as a courtesy. The problem was fixed the next day and I successfully completed my order (redeeming the offer).

That is interesting. I did online chat on Saturday and problem for me is still unresolved. I have tried every day since last Friday without success.

Probably, it's another few days back but certainly within this offer period. I suggest to contact Pet Circle directly as it seems to be a system glitch on the website. I also have some unused Amex offers but wouldn't bother at the moment as the items I am interested have been out of stock for the last week or so,

Received all bar Menulog and United Cellars on my Qantas Amex.

But recently had Menulog on that card in the past few months (can't remember the exact date)
