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.

At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for $70 back when you spend $350+ at Conrad or Waldorf Astoria properties. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through December 31, 2019.

It’s possible there’s also a version of the offer for 7,000 bonus Membership Rewards points rather than $70, though I don’t see such an offer on any of my cards.

The promotion is valid for stays at select Conrad and Waldorf Astoria properties in China, Germany, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Singapore, Thailand, the United States, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Norther Ireland. Note that not all properties at those destinations qualify, so here’s a list with all participating properties.

I appreciate that this promotion is valid in more than just US locations, given the geographic restrictions often associated with Amex Offers.

It 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, in which case making a pre-paid booking during the promotion period would qualify. Historically Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts and Virtuoso bookings qualify as well, assuming you settle payment at the hotel.

While there are lots of great American Express travel rewards cards, ideally you’ll see this offer on a Hilton Honors American Express card, so you can earn bonus points and receive a statement credit.

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

  1. Crap! Have a stay at The London NYC (Conrad) planned in 2 weeks and they are not participating.

  2. I suspect there is not a version offering MR instead of $. I had this offer on nearly all of my cards, but all were for $70, even on the cards that typically offer MR in lieu of $.

    I was already booked at 2 of the hotels on the list in the next few months, but I don’t think it will be worth it to change any reservations. Both hotels had rooms at AAA rates for a bit under $300/night including all taxes/fees. So one night wouldn’t be enough to trigger the rebate, but 2 nights would effectively make this a “Spend $600, get $70” deal, which is less appealing.

  3. Can this offer by combined with the $100 CB after $500 spent in Europe. Waldorf Berlin is on the list and I think should qualify for double dipping?

  4. Very first hotel on participating list is Conrad Chicago. Who says that promos don’t work? I was contemplating booking a stay at London House – a gorgeous Curio Collection hotel in Chicago – right after Thanksgiving, but this AMEX Offer just tipped things in favor of Conrad Chicago… 😉

  5. They may enforce the no pre-paid covenant as prepaid Hilton stays (in the US at least) show up as Hilton Advance Purchase on your credit card statement rather than simply the name of the property you’re staying at. Seems to be centrally done. Maybe that’s why they actually let you cancel and rebook prepaid stays.

  6. The offer isn’t on my Amex Platinum or my Hilton Aspire, perhaps because I’ve stayed at a Conrad a number of times this year, so I might not be in the target audience for customer acquisition.
