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.

We somewhat frequently see Amex Offers for discounts on hotel stays, in particular with Hilton and Marriott, given that Amex issues co-brand credit cards for both of those companies. We’re now seeing a new hotel offer.

Save $125 when you spend $500+ with Hilton

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $125 back when you spend $500+ at Conrad or Waldorf Astoria properties.

The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through December 31, 2020, and only properties in the US and US territories qualify.

We’ve seen these Amex Offers deals for Hilton properties quite a few times in the past, given the close partnership between Amex and Hilton.

This promotion isn’t valid at any Hilton family brands other than Conrad or Waldorf Astoria. According to the terms you need to book directly with Hilton to take advantage of this, and what matters is that you’re billed during the promotion period.

What’s interesting is that the terms state “offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.” I’m not sure to what degree that will actually be enforced. I suspect they added this to the terms to make it clear that those who already pre-paid and are staying during the promotion period wouldn’t get the bonus.

In reality I would imagine eligibility will be based on whether you have an eligible charge from a hotel on your credit card during the promotion period. Historically Virtuoso bookings qualify for these promotions as well.

You can also combine this Amex Offers deal with any promotions being run by Hilton Honors, including the current double rewards global promotion.

This offer seems to mostly be on Hilton cards

While there are lots of great American Express travel rewards cards, it appears that this offer is mostly being targeted to Hilton Honors American Express accounts. This includes the following cards:

In many ways it’s ideal to have these offers on co-branded cards anyway, given that they offer bonus points for Hilton spending.

Bottom line

There’s a new Amex Offers deal that can save you money on your next Conrad or Waldorf Astoria stay in the US. This does seem to mostly be targeted on co-branded Hilton cards. If you have one of these cards then that’s great, since they offer compelling returns for Hilton spending to begin with.

Was your account targeted for this Conrad & Waldorf Astoria Amex Offer, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?

  1. Hi Ben, I have an upcoming stay at Waldorf Ithaafushi using free night certificates. You think this offer applies to charges that I will incur (i.e. meals, airport transfers etc)?

  2. If this processes the same way as an offer I used in February, then the $250 Waldorf/Conrad credit on the Aspire card also applies. In other words, say you spend $500 with this offer and you have the full $250 Aspire credit, you’ll get both $250 off and the $50 off with this Amex Offer; you won’t have to spend $750 to have a net of $500 charged to the Amex after the $250 Aspire credit.

    Let’s hope that’s the same here!

  3. Jay:

    I think you are discussing two separate Aspire benefits. There is a $100 Conrad/Waldorf benefit. If you book certain rates, you get a $100 property credit. There is also the $250 Hilton resort credit. Some Waldorf and Conrad properties are considered resorts, though many are not, and many other non-Waldorf and Conrad properties are considered resorts.

  4. My bad, should’ve clarified that. You’re right, the Waldorf or Conrad in the US also has to be on that list of resort properties for the $250 Aspire credit, which looks like there is 1 Conrad and 10 Waldorf properties in the US on that list.

  5. Forgot another tip. If you have 100 active offers, meaning they haven’t been added to your card, that’s the limit. This offer wasn’t showing up on my Aspire Amex card because I had 100 active offers. I added a bunch of them to my card, refreshed the page, and this Waldorf/Conrad offer showed up.

  6. Ugh, tired of these offers only being valid for US hotels! Anyone tried to buy gift cards at a Conrad/Waldorf yet to use overseas?
