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 $35 back when you spend $175+ at Hampton by Hilton or Hilton Garden Inn properties. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through January 31, 2018. The promotion is only valid for stays at U.S. properties, and isn’t valid at any Hilton family brands other than Hampton by Hilton or Hilton Garden Inn. You need to book directly with Hilton to take advantage of this, and what matters is that you’re billed during the promotion period.

Do keep in mind that this promotion is targeted, though Ford and I each see the offer on one of our accounts (I see it on The Platinum Card® from American Express, while Ford sees it on The Business Platinum® Card from American Express).

Given the relationship between American Express and Hilton, we’ve seen quite a few Amex Offers for stays at Hilton-family properties. For example, at the moment there are also a targeted Amex Offer for stays at Hilton hotels (rather than one of their other brands), for a $50 statement credit on a $250+ Hilton stay.

There’s also an Amex Offer for DoubleTree, for a $40 statement credit on a $200+ DoubleTree stay.

Keep in mind that if you’re able to register this offer for multiple cards, you can always ask them to split payment methods at check-out. In other words, if you have a $350+ Hampton or Hilton Garden Inn stay, you could potentially take advantage of this offer on multiple cards.

You can stack the Amex Offer with all the other great promotions that Hilton is running. This includes double points on all stays, 5,000 bonus points after two stays paid with an Amex, 500 bonus points for booking through the Hilton app, and 500 bonus points for booking with a Hilton Amex card.

Was your account targeted for this Hampton/Hilton Garden Inn Amex Offer, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?

  1. Thanks for the heads up. Nothing on my Surpass card yet, but I’ll keep looking. I have a couple stays where I could apply this.

  2. I’ve come around on Hilton Garden Inns. I thought they were kind of uninspired at first. However, I’ve come to appreciate the amenities: free breakfast for Honors Gold members, on-site restaurant and bar, free parking. The last one we went to even had a coin laundry, which we wound up using (better than washing clothes in the guestroom sink). The rooms are usually also pretty decent.

    I don’t think I was targeted for this offer, though.

  3. Noooo! I just booked my room yesterday at Hampton and got the Offer today. I Wish I used it (and I spent $180 on my stay so i was elegible). This is another reason why you should procrastinate 🙂

  4. I am thinking of using this offer. Is there a specific part of the hotel bill that needs to meet the $175 threshold (like only the room rate) or so long as the total charge is $175+? I guess my question is if my room rate is $79 x2 = $158, plus taxes 13% = $178.54 -> would I still get the $35 credit? Thanks!
