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. A new offer has just launched that’s very similar to an offer we saw late last year and also an offer we saw earlier last year.
At the moment there’s a targeted Amex Offer for $45 back when you spend $250+ at Hilton Hotels & Resorts or Curio Collection properties. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through April 30, 2018. The promotion is only valid for stays at US properties (including US territories), and isn’t valid at any Hilton family brands other than Hilton or Curio.
Given the relationship between American Express and Hilton, we’ve seen quite a few Amex Offers from them over the years, so this is only the latest option from them that can be valuable.
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 Express, The Business Platinum® Card from American Express, The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express, The Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express, and The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card.
One great scenario is if you get this offer on the Hilton Honors Ascend Card or The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card, since you can earn 12x Hilton Honors points for your spend, plus get the equivalent of 18% back on your $250 of spend in the form of the $45 statement credit.
If you book a stay costing significantly more than $250, you can always ask them to charge multiple credit cards at check-out, so you put $250 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?
