Thoughts

I value 3,000 Membership Rewards points at $45 so this is a remarkably good effective rebate that Amex is offering when you consider that you only have to spend $150 to trigger this offer.

You should be aware that there is a similar offer to this one (discussed below) where a cash statement credit is offered in lieu of Membership Rewards points and, even though I value the Membership Rewards Points more than the cash rebate that’s on offer, the cash rebate will also allow you to earn bonus Hilton Honors points if it has been targeted to an Amex Hilton credit card that you old.

If you have been targeted for both the Membership Rewards offer and the statement credit offer but only plan to make one stay with Tru by Hilton, you’ll have to decide which you value more: The 3,000 Membership Rewards Points or the statement credit combined with the Hilton Honors points you’ll earn by booking with a Hilton co-branded Amex card.

Offer 2 – Get $30 back When Spending $150+ At Tru By Hilton

Headline Details

Get a one-time $30 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $150+ on room rate and room charges for your stay at Tru by Hilton from 1/13/2020 to 3/31/2020.

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.

Thoughts

The first Amex Tru by Hilton offer (above) is for 3,000 Membership Rewards points which I value at $45 while this offer is for a $30 statement credit. On the face of things that makes the first offer a lot more rewarding but that may not necessarily be the case or even a necessary consideration.

Firstly, if you have been targeted for both the Membership Rewards offer and the statement credit offer you can use them both (assuming you need to make two Tru by Hilton bookings).

Secondly, if you’re making a sizeable booking with Tru by Hilton and if you have the statement credit targeted to one of the Hilton American Express credit cards (like the Hilton Honors Surpass card which earns 12 points/dollar at Hilton properties worldwide), it may be more beneficial to earn the statement credit together with the Hilton Honors points that using the Hilton credit card get you rather than taking the Membership Rewards points option.

If you have been targeted for both the Membership Rewards offer and the statement credit offer but only plan to make one stay with Tru by Hilton, you’ll have to decide which you value more: The 3,000 Membership Rewards Points or the statement credit combined with the Hilton Honors points you’ll earn by booking with a Hilton co-branded Amex card.

Offer 3 – Get $75 back When Spending $500 At Hilton Properties In Mexico

Headline Details

Get a one-time $75 USD statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $500+ USD on room rate and room charges for your stay at Hilton properties in Mexico from 1/13/2020 to 3/31/2020.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
  • Offer only valid for eligible US Card Members for purchases made within Hilton Portfolio hotels and resorts in Mexico.
  • Offer only valid for reservations made online at hilton.com, via the Hilton Honors App or by calling 1-800-HILTONS (445-8667).
  • Excludes gift card purchases.
  • Offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.
  • Qualifying purchase means a purchase at a Hilton Portfolio hotels and resorts in Mexico made during the offer period with your enrolled American Express Card and which is in an amount of at least $500 USD as posted to your account, following conversion from a foreign currency, if applicable, in accordance with your Cardmember Agreement.
  • Offer only valid on room rate and room charges.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Amex offer if you’ve been targeted for it.

Thoughts

If you can limit yourself to paying as close to $500 as possible for your stay (without spending less) then this Amex Hilton offer will effective give you a rebate of approximately 15%…and that’s not bad if you were planning on making a booking anyway.

Combined with the Hilton Honors points earnings you would receive if you have this offer targeted to one of the Amex Hilton credit cards this is certainly a deal worth taking note of…but I don’t see it being good enough to encourage anyone to take a trip they weren’t planning to take anyway.

This offer should be seen as a bonus and not an incentive to spend cash you weren’t planning to spend anyway.

Offer 4 – Get 6,000 Membership Rewards Points When Spending $350+ At Hilton Properties In Puerto Rico

Headline Details

Get 6,000 additional Membership Rewards points one-time by using your enrolled Card to spend $350+ on room rate and room charges for your stay at Hilton properties in Puerto Rico from 1/13/2020 to 3/31/2020.

Key Terms

  • Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem.
  • Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards that are enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of purchase are eligible.
  • Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels.
  • Offer valid only at Hilton brand hotels in Puerto Rico.
  • Reservations must be made online at hilton.com, via the Hilton Honors App or by calling 1-800-445-8667.
  • Offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.
  • Excludes gift card purchases.
  • Offer only valid on room rate and room charges.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Amex offer if you’ve been targeted for it.

Thoughts

Hilton has a total of 7 properties in Puerto Rico so there isn’t a shortage of hotels to choose from with this deal (assuming you want to visit Puerto Rico in the first place!).

I value 6,000 Membership Rewards at $90 (1.5 cents/point) so the maximum effective rebate on offer here is over 25% and that’s very tempting.

As with the other deals I’ve written about above, this deal should be looked upon as a very nice bonus for anyone who was already considering booking a trip to Puerto Rico and nothing more.

On the basis that you’ll probably have to fly to get to your destination and the fact that your accommodation, food & drinks will probably cost you noticeably more than $350, the effective rebate of $90 shouldn’t be seen as enough for anyone to suddenly decide that a trip to the Caribbean is a great idea – if you use Amex Offers to save money they can be fantastic but once they start inducing you to take trips you wouldn’t otherwise have taken they’re not a savings mechanism at all.

Bottom Line

There are some very nice savings on offer here for anyone who was already considering making one or more Hilton bookings but make sure you read the terms and conditions carefully so that you don’t somehow fail to trigger the offer you’re going for.
