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 January 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 Conrad properties in the US, and Waldorf Astoria properties in the US, Amsterdam, Berlin, Edinburgh, and Paris. 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, as would any Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts or Virtuoso bookings. Again, that’s my take, and I’d feel comfortable counting on that, but I can’t guarantee it.

Also keep in mind that this promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted. For example, I see the card on The Platinum Card® from American ExpressThe Business Platinum® Card from American ExpressThe Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express, the Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express, and the Hilton Honors American Express Business Card.

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

  1. Matt, will it work that way with the credits?

    I got $45 off of 300. Does that mean I could spend 300, get the 45 off and then the 250 from the Aspire credit?

  2. I don’t think that’s the case… Hilton seems to use a different purchasing code when you book pre paid stays that don’t activate the AMEX offer. Had this happen with a regular Hilton stay on a prior AMEX offer.

  3. I think the key is to always book it at the Hilton Rate, which will charge a deposit equivalent to one-night’s stay and not really a “pre-paid” rate. The deposit DOES count and is booked directly from the hotel which should trigger the AMEX offer and Aspire credit, I would think.

  4. Just booked one night at Waldorf Maui. Total charge is $457. Used the Blue Cash card. The offer has not been activated yet. Will keep you posted.

  5. This was not on my aspire card the first time I looked and then showed up the day after I checked out of the WA in Orlando. Seriously.
