American Express has partnered with TripAdvisor to allow cardholders to link their credit card account to their profile on the travel site to post reviews, check out exclusive lists of popular hotspots, and take advantage of special offers.

How it works

Members link their American Express account to their profile by accessing a special hub on the TripAdvisor website. At that point they receive an Amex Traveler badge or title on their profile. When members post their first review and it’s published, they receive a $5 statement credit from American Express.

When linking credit cards to online venues security can be a concern, but according to American Express, a cardholder’s personal information, including their account number, is not shared with TripAdvisor.

What’s hot

Purchases made by Amex travelers will be entered into the American Express Spend Graph, technology that maps customer shopping and spending trends anonymously.

Members who sign up will be able to review lists created by the software, so they will know which venues, hotels and events are hot with other cardholders in destinations they are visiting.

To generate a list a person plugs in where they are going and why they are traveling. A foodie going to Paris, for example, could generate a list of restaurants frequented by AmEx cardholders.

Special deals

On the TripAdvisor website AmEx cardholders can access special offers, which can be used while traveling or planning their trip. Once they click on the offer, it is saved to their account.

When customers redeem the offer using their linked card, they receive a statement credit for the amount. Merchants participating in this program include: American Express Travel, California Pizza Kitchen, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Merivale, and The Palm.

TripAdvisor is a travel site where travelers can share and read reviews of destinations, hotels, attractions and restaurants around the world. The site also provides visitors with access to special travel tools, and information on deals offered by online booking sites.
