Great New Amex Offer For Stays At ALL Hilton Brands

In the interest of full disclosure, One Mile at a Time earns a referral bonus for anyone that’s approved through some of the below links. These are the best publicly available offers that we have found for each card.

For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings and bonus offers. In many cases the offers can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.

To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. These offers come in different forms, including discounts and even in some cases bonus points. Over the years we’ve seen quite a few offers for Hilton stays, given the longstanding partnership between American Express and Hilton. Yesterday we saw an Amex Offer for Hilton and Curio stays end, and today we saw a new one introduced.

With this new, targeted Amex Offer, you can earn 3,500 bonus Membership Rewards points after spending $300+ at Hilton properties in the US. This promotion is pretty awesome when you consider that it seems to be valid at any Hilton portfolio property in the US, while previous promotions have only been for specific brands. You have to make your booking directly with Hilton in order to qualify for this promotion (or more accurately, have to settle your bill directly with the hotel).

Best I can tell, this would work at Conrad, Waldorf Astoria, etc. This promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted. For example, in my case I see the offer on The Platinum Card® from American ExpressThe Business Platinum® Card from American Express, and The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express.

Personally I value Membership Rewards points at ~1.7 cents each, so to me that’s like ~$60 worth of points on $300 of spend, which is ~20% back. That’s great, when you consider that it’s on top of the points you usually earn.

If you book a stay costing significantly more than $300, you can always ask them to charge multiple credit cards at check-out, so you put $300 on an Amex card, and then the residual on another card that offers the most bonus points for your stay.

Was your account targeted for this Hilton Amex offer, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?

  1. Even my Hilton Honors Ascend Card does not have any Hilton offers! But my AMEX EveryDay Preferred card, I have the following:

    – Spend $300+, get 3,500 Membership Rewards® Points Hilton Portfolio
    – Spend $1,000 or more, get $200 back Hilton brands in Hawaii
    – Spend $500 or more, get $75 back Hilton properties in Australia

    Unfortunately, none that I can utilize as I am on a Marriott mattress run. Nothing on my 2 SPG cards for Marriott or SPG stays. My Delta Platinum card contains “Spend $200 or more, get $40 back JW Marriott” but trying to keep my cost per night around $100 – closest JWM is about 50 miles away (JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE) and around $240++ nightly rates.

    Who thinks of these offers?

  2. Lucky – let’s say I have a 2 night stay booked for a Hilton property, room rate is $139 per night but taxes on the room put my overall charge above $300, would that trigger redemption of the offer? Or is it purely based on room rate?

  3. Is it risky to pay 3 nights, of a 7 night stay made through Citi Prestige 4th night free concierge booking, on an Amex card, assuming you do the math right? (Sure, safer to break them into separate stays but the weekly rate provides a significant discount.)

  4. The terms state that you have to spend $300+ on rate and charges by 6/30/18, but does that mean my stay needs to be completed by that time? Can I book the stay for let’s say August and still trigger the bonus points?

  5. I got this on my plat but can’t decide if it is any more valuable to me than the 44 points/$ if I just used my aspire card. Hmmmm…

    I suppose I could split a bill for anything exceeding $300 on to the aspire to maximize?

  6. Does the $300 plus spend need to be on one continuous reservation? I am staying twice at Hiltons in May, but two different weeks. Both stays will add up to $300 plus. Will that work?

  7. Would this work if the room is booked through Concur at a corporate rate, reserved and paid using an AMEX corp card where I settle to the card at the front desk when I chek out?

  8. Thanks lucky!
    Saw the post right before my check-in at Hampton Inn.
    Signed up on Plat Amex.

  9. @Randy Simon

    That should work. I just used my MGM offer where it charged me for 1 night up front and the rest later and if posted as two separate charges. (Credit Card Authorization).

    @Jordan

    Technically advance purchase and non refundable rates don’t qualify but Amex is lenient on this. As long as the hotel charges you before the offer expires it should work.
    I just used up my MGM offer that was set to expire one day before my actual checkout date and I ended up filling out a credit card authorization form to pay for the room up front and I received my 6K Amex Points.

  10. Would this work for the Honors Long Weekenders rate? I want to book a room for October but I’d love to get the points now. I would be willing to pay in full. This rate is not explicitly not applicable in the terms and conditions.
