New Amex Offer For Hampton Inn & Hilton Garden Inn

Filed Under: American Express, Hilton

Amex frequently has promotions for hotel stays, which can save you money or earn you bonus points for stays you’d make anyway. They’ve just rolled out their latest such offer.

With this new, targeted Amex Offer, you can earn $40 back or receive 4,000 bonus Membership Rewards points when you spend $175+ at Hampton Inn or Hilton Garden Inn in the US by January 31, 2019.

Personally, I value Membership Rewards points at 1.7 cents each, so the 4,000 bonus point offer is better than the $40 offer, since I value 4,000 points at $68.

This is an exceptional offer. There was a similar offer a few months ago, but it was for $30/3,000 points, while the offer is now about a third better, so that’s great. Getting the equivalent of nearly 40% back (in points) for stays at budget brands isn’t something you see every day.

All eligible room rates and room charges should qualify towards this offer, including taxes and other fees. You don’t have to spend the entire $175 in one transaction, but rather multiple transactions should qualify.

The best part is that you can combine this with the other great promotions Hilton Honors is offering. For example, Hilton is offering a minimum of double points on all stays through January 3, 2019.

As much as I’m loyal to Hyatt and Marriott/Starwood, Hilton offers an unrivaled return on spend between their Honors program and all the Amex Offers they have. I really need to stay with them more.

Was your account targeted for this promotion, and will this cause you to stay at a Hampton Inn or Hilton Garden Inn?

  1. “Offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.”

  2. Staying at a Hampton Inn this weekend. Just checked my wife’s Hilton Honors Card (no annual fee) offers and she was targeted! Hello $40!

  3. Hey Lucky. This has nothing to do with AMEX or Hilton Honors, rather the Capitol One declining credit card approvals.

    Just received, via emili from Cap Onel stating the actual reason for disapproving both mine and my wifes (two seperate applications) for the Capital One Venture Card giving 75K points.

    Reason is point blank: “You have opened too many credit cards in the past 24 months, (7).
    Am I to assume that Cap One now has a card limit like Chase within a 24 month period?

  4. Prices for Hampton and HGI in my area are such that a 2-night stay is needed to reach $175, but two nights cost $300. It’s a good deal but I almost never have 2 night stays.

  5. @Kirk Benson: “Prices for Hampton and HGI in my area are such that a 2-night stay is needed to reach $175, but two nights cost $300. It’s a good deal but I almost never have 2 night stays.”

    Which makes the fact that you don’t have to spend the $175 in a single transaction a really good thing.

  6. Lucky, thanks for tracking these great offers! does. does anyone know if hampton inns every sell gift cards at front desk, please?
