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 targeted Amex Offer for $60 back when you spend $300+ at Hilton Hotels & Resorts or Curio Collection properties. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through July 30, 2017. The promotion is only valid for stays at U.S. properties, 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. For example, earlier this year we saw an Amex Offer for 3,500 bonus Membership Rewards points after spending $250 with Hilton or Curio, and last year we saw an Amex Offer for $60 back when you spend $300 at Hilton properties.
Do keep in mind that 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 Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express, The Blue for Business® Credit Card from American Express, etc. In the case of Ford’s account I even see that he has been targeted on the Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express, which is the best of both worlds, since he can earn 12x Honors points per dollar spent, plus get $60 off a $300 Hilton purchase.
Keep in mind that if you book a stay costing significantly more than $300, you can always ask them to charge multiple credit cards at check-out, so you put $300 on an Amex card, and then the residual on another card that offers the most bonus points for your stay (or ideally you just have the Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express and it’s targeted, so you get the best of both worlds).
Was your account targeted for this Hilton Amex offer, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?
